Adversaries Event Tasks and Rewards


The second Lethal Adversaries Event is similar to the debut Lethal Adversaries Event. Players have 2 regular sets of tasks to complete, plus a Bonus Assignment.

Keep in mind that rewards for all Wizards Unite events will be generous between now and the games end on January 31, 2022. As we saw with Barty Crouch Jr., players can earn a great deal of Gold just by defeating the Guards!

That said, rewards for tasks during the Dolores Umbridge Lethal Adversaries Event are reduced from the Barty Crouch Jr. Lethal Adversaries Event. So yay.

If you are seeing plenty of Adversaries on the Map, wait until youve completed all other tasks before you use the Edible Dark Mark. Then it will help you with the 2nd quest.

How to Prepare for the Lethal Adversaries Event


After completing the first Lethal Adversaries Event, I can offer somewhat better advice before Dolores Umbridge appears!

At this point, if you havent completed an entire Profession Lesson Plan, I would ignore Lethal Adversaries entirely. The Dark Mark on the Map is different for Feared Adversaries. Just battle Feared Adversaries. The Guards for Lethal Adversaries are stronger than Narcissa Malfoy, the strongest Feared Adversary.

For everyone else, work on your Advanced Adversarial Combat. Im sitting at 14/15 nodes. With that (and a lot of Potions), I never lost a battle against Barty Crouch Jr. Even if youre waiting to earn more Defense Against the Dark Arts Books, you can do Wizarding Challenges to earn additional Spell Books.

Strengthen your Potions through SOS Training. Brew the following Potions:

  • Strong and Potent Exstimulo Potions
  • Wit-Sharpening Potions
  • Healing Potions
  • Tonics for Trace Detection (not as critical)

Max out your Spell Energy. Right now, Spell Energy on the Map is extremely generous, so this should be easy to do.

Use some of those extra Gold rewards to buy Vault Extensions so you can hold more Spell Energy, Potions, and Ingredients.

This SOS Training chart indicates the different nodes and their locations to improve your Potions. Note the inclusion of nodes to improve Tonic for Trace Detection.

Tips to Enjoy the Lethal Adversaries Event


While I still dont know the exact math for Dolores Umbridge, I did see the strength of Barty Crouch Jr. and his Guards. Thus we know that Dolores Umbridge and her Guards will be even stronger.

If you have not progressed much with Advanced Adversarial Combat, focus on the Feared Adversaries. You can still enter Lethal Adversary Encounters, but consider backing out after the 1st Guard. Otherwise, you will need to use a lot of Potions.

If you dont need anymore Defense Against the Dark Arts Books, and youve already prestiged all of your Feared Adversaries, you can focus just on Lethal Adversaries. The Dark Mark on the Map will look different between a Feared Adversary and a Lethal Adversary. While Dolores Umbridge will be featured, Barty Crouch Jr. should also appear occasionally.

Of course, if you still need specific Feared Adversaries to prestige, you can enter an Adversary Encounter to see who it is. If you still dont need additional DADA Books, you can back out of any Adversary youve already green-starred on a gold frame.

How to Save on Potions


Due to the difficulty of Lethal Adversaries, you will use a lot of Potions. However, you can take a few steps to minimize how many Potions you use.

First, cast your Maxima Attack without Potions. Then stack a Potent Exstimulo Potion with a Wit-Sharpening Potion (5 charges towards the next Maxima). Be alert with Protego. Keep an eye on your health bar (this is easier with the new update since low health is indicated with red around your screen), and drink Healing Potions with abundant caution.

If you have more time than Potions, you can save on Potions by only casting Maxima. You earn 1 charge for each Healing Potion and 1 charge for each Protego. This is a slow way to recharge your Maxima Attack bar, but then you only extend Potions during the Maxima Attack, which does considerable Damage.

How to Charge Maxima Attack


Whenever you face a new Adversary in the chain, you start with a charged Maxima Attack. After that, you recharge it by taking certain actions. Here are all the charges you get with each action.

  • Drink a regular Exstimulo Potion: 1 charge
  • Drink a Strong Exstimulo Potion: 2 charges
  • Drink a Potent Exstimulo Potion: 3 charges
  • Drink a Healing Potion: 1 charge
  • Drink a Wit-Sharpening Potion: 2 charges
  • Attack the Foe: 2 charges
  • Cast Protego: 1 charge

How many charges you need to fill up the Maxima Attack bar depends on the Foe in the Adversary chain. For now, we do not know the number for Dolores Umbridge and her Guards, but we do know the stats for Barty Crouch Jr. and his Guards.

  • 8 for Dangerous Azkaban Escapee
  • 10 for Vicious Death Eater
  • 10 for Peter Pettigrew
  • 12 for Barty Crouch Jr.

Most likely, these will be comparable for Dolores Umbridge and her Guards.

Avoid Getting Kicked out of a Lethal Adversary Encounter


Many players were kicked out of the Barty Crouch Jr. Adversary chain. If this happened to you, there are some steps you can take to avoid it.

If a Foe Dodges your Maxima Attack, it may cause your game to crash. This is how you can avoid this bug.

First, how the bug works.

  • Player casts Maxima.
  • Adversary Dodges.
  • Maxima bar is incorrectly shown as full.
  • If you try to cast Maxima again, the game will crash because the Maxima is not charged (the game is showing incorrect information).

Heres what to do instead, if you cast Maxima and the Adversary Dodges.

  • Continue the battle using regular attacks.
  • Count your actions to calculate when the Maxima Attack is ready to use again.

While we dont know the number of charges needed to recharge the Maxima Attack bar for Dolores Umbridge and her Guards, we do know for the Barty Crouch Jr. Adversary chain. Use that as a guideline with Dolores Umbridge.

In addition, when you start battling the next Adversary in the chain, the Maxima Attack resets. It is safe to use at this point.

Adversaries Event Bundles


Like all Wizards Unite events, this Adversaries Event will feature store bundles. The free store pack includes an Edible Dark Mark! Both paid bundles are repeats from past events.

Free store pack includes:

  • 1 Dark Detector
  • 1 Edible Dark Mark
  • 2 Healing Potions
  • 1 Exstimulo Potion
  • 30 Spell Energy

The Arresto Adversary Bundle (800 Gold) includes:

  • 3 Edible Dark Marks
  • 125 Spell Energy

Is this bundle a good deal?

You can buy 5 Edible Dark Marks for 1200 Gold, making the individual value 240 Gold. Thus the value of 3 Edible Dark Marks is 720 Gold. Unless, you need discounted Spell Energy, this bundle is not good value for EDMs.

The Adversary Vanquisher Trunk (2020 Gold) includes:

  • 3 Edible Dark Marks
  • 125 Spell Energy
  • 8 Potent Exstimulo Potions
  • 8 Wit-Sharpening Potions
  • 8 Strong Exstimulo Potions

3 Edible Dark Marks are worth 720 Gold.

A single Potent Exstimulo Potion in Diagon Alley costs 75 Gold. However, if you have all of the common Ingredients, its a better deal to buy 1 Unicorn Hair for 30 Gold, use Master Notes in the Cauldron, and then collect the Potion immediately for 41 Gold. So lets put the value of Potent Exstimulo Potions at 71 Gold.

Thus 8 Potent Potions are worth 568 Gold.

Normally we dont recommend spending Gold on Strong Exstimulo Potions because their Ingredients are common. However, with frequent Wizards Unite events, players are going through their Potions quickly.

Looking at just Ingredients, its 3 Gold each per Snowdrop, Bitterroot, and Reem Blood, plus 12 Gold for Abraxan Hair, so 36 Gold per Strong Exstimulo Potion.

Thus 8 Strong Potions are worth 288 Gold.

I really dont recommend spending Gold on Wit-Sharpening Potions because Ingredients will be boosted during the event, AND you can get these Potions through Gifts.

Before Spell Energy, the bundle is really not worth the price asked. I only recommend this bundle for rural players who dont have access to Ingredients or Spell Energy. And now, with Unicorn Hair available on the Map, and boosted Spell Energy, the bundle really isnt a good deal.
