Ravenclaw, Thunderbird
It’s that time again, SOS Task Force members! The Calamity is out of control and this time it decided to focus on The Burrow. Ron Weasley, and some of his prised possessions, need our help.

Just like in the previous event, the tasks were designed with the current global climate in mind. With a bit of patience, a lot of energy and some well-placed potions, we should all be able to complete this Burrow Besieged I Brilliant Event Tasks.

The details for this Brilliant Event arrived extremely last-minute, so let’s get right to it.

Burrow Besieged I Brilliant Event

Lasting an entire week as usual (from April 7th to April 14th), this will be the first part of the Burrow Besieged Brilliant Event (with the second part running later this month). This event will let us complete the first page of the event Registry and also get some more of those precious restricted books that are holding our professional careers back.

Burrow Besieged I Event tasks

Just like in all previous events, this one will be split into four parts. Every task will have its own reward, with a larger reward once each of the four parts is completed. This is where we will get our Restricted Section books, along with Brilliant Foundables, event XP and much more. Let’s take a closer look at those tasks.

Our take on the tasks

Let’s look a little deeper into the tasks and figure out which ones we’ll need to prepare for, which ones might hold us back and more.

The Potions

Since the Burrow Besieged I Brilliant Event is designed to be playable for those stuck at home, it will rely quite a bit on Tonic for Trace Detection, although we’ve played other events that required the use of many more Potions, so it’s quite manageable.

In total, we will need to use three Tonic for Trace Detection and one Baruffio’s Brain Elixir. We will also need to brew two Tonic for Trace Detection in part 3/4. Considering how many ingredients for this particular potion are out there on the map, and that the Master Notes cut down its brewing time by half, this part of the event should not be an issue at all.

As for Baruffio’s Brain Elixir, we will get all the ingredients we need to brew one (except for the Snowdrop, since we have to use the potion before receiving these as the reward) so even if you’re all out you can still brew it during the event. The Elixir will also be available for purchase as part of the Brilliant Bundle in case you want or need more. It will certainly come in handy for those tasks that require a high amount of XP.

The Family Foundables

During this event we will see an increased number of Wonders of the Wizarding World Foundables. There is, however, a possible issue here. There was also supposed to be an increased number of Foundables during the Mischief mini-event which showed us players that an ‘increased number’ of Foundables means something very different to the developers. So if you’re hoping to see Ford Anglias and Grawps lurking about…well, we hope so too, but we’re not too sure it will happen.

The Portkeys

All Circus Calamitous Brilliant Portkeys will be 1.5 km and will take us to a brand new Portkey Location.

There are no tasks involving Portkeys this time around, so you can open them at your own rhythm, although do keep in mind you will need to find five Brilliant Wizard Chess Set Fragments to complete the sticker on the Registry Page, so do plan accordingly.

The Fortresses

There are no Fortress-related tasks this time around, which is great for those stuck at home.

While there’s, as always, a Fortress Foundable that needs 3 Fragments, we can complete this Foundable from home, too. Once we reach the Bonus tasks, we will see three of them will yield Pigwidgeon Fragments. This is great news, of course, just make sure you get to the Bonus Tasks with enough time left to complete them all.

You can find out what those Bonus Tasks are by scrolling down to the Bonus Tasks section of this post.

Brilliant Event Tips

Here are a few tips to keep in mind before and during the event.

  • You will be using quite a few Tonic for Trace Detection. Make sure you have enough potions and ingredients.
  • Remember Master Notes cut down brewing time for Tonic for Trace Detection by half.
  • You will need to collect two Tonic for Trace Detection during part 3/4 so plan accordingly and make sure you keep that cauldron working.
  • Baruffio’s Brain Elixir will come in handy when you need to earn 2000XP (part 2/4) 3000 XP (part 4/4) and 7500XP (Bonus Tasks). Make sure you have enough but don’t slow down your brewing queue unless you know you have the Tonics you need already done.
  • Keep an eye out for those Wonders of the Wizarding World Foundables. With any luck we will see an actual increase in rare Traces.
  • Don’t be shy about using those Dark Detectors if you have an Inn within reach. And remember you can use up to three in the same Inn.
  • Remember you need to open at least 5 Brilliant Portkeys to complete the Registry Foundable. If you’re having trouble walking enough to get them open you can always use some silver keys. Or find a corner at home with low internet signal and leave the game open there. With a little luck your avatar will walk some of those KM for you just trying to figure out where it is.
  • Check out our Friend Code map and grab some codes. Friend Gifts always come in handy.
  • If you can, try to start the event with full energy. It will make the first day go much better.
  • And the most important one: Stay safe!!
That’s what we have for today, so go play!

Make sure you’re ready to make the most of the event, add your Friend Code to our map if you haven’t yet. You can also have a look around the map and find players in your area!

We also have a Local Community Map where you can add your Wizards Unite Communities for other players to find you!

If you have any more tips for new players make sure to leave them in the comment section! We’d love to make the most the event.
