It’s been a year now, and the Calamity is still going strong. But so is the S.O.S. Task Force and every one of its members. Once more, we must unite and protect our way of living and keep those Muggles unaware of what really is going on. Because, as we all know, an unaware Muggle is a happy Muggle. So come along and find out what’s new in this very meta One Year Later Brilliant Event.

One Year Later I Brilliant Event

Lasting an entire week as usual (from June 2nd to June 9th), this will be the first part of the One Year Later 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.

One Year Later 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

There is a little Potions prep for this event, and depending on how fast you complete the tasks it might get a little tricky, though a little patience will get you through it.

The first thing we need is a Tonic for Trace Detection for part 1/4. You’ll want to make sure you have enough ingredients to brew it beforehand, or you might end up stuck in part 1, having to wait the 3.5 hs it takes to brew (with the Master Notes).

After that, we will need four more Potions to complete part 3/4.

Of course, you can only queue 4 Potions at a time and can’t start brewing a new Potion until you have collected all the completed Potions available. So here are two ways to get this done without having to wait.

  • Brew four Potions in the normal Cauldron. Then rent a second Cauldron and brew one more. Simply make sure at least one of the Potions is a Tonic and collect only that one until you reach part four. The cost of this option is 15 Gold Coins for the rental.
  • Brew four Potions in the normal Cauldron. Once the event starts collect the Tonic for Trace Detection only. When you get to part 3/4 collect the other three and start brewing a fourth Potion. Since you need to return 10 Brilliant Auror Harry Potter in this part, it will probably take some time to be ready to move on to 4/4. Once you have everything ready, you can wait however long is left of your brewing or pay to speed it up. The cost will depend on the time left but will probably be cheaper than the rental Cauldron.
The Family Foundables

During this event we will see an increased number of some Ministry of Magic Foundables. More specifically Ministry Official, Ministry Administrator, Arthur Weasley and Nymphadora Tonks, with a chance of seeing The Veil and even Ministry Employee Newt Scamander.

The Portkeys

All One Year Later Brilliant Portkeys will be 1.5 km. We will need to unlock one Brilliant Portkey for part 3/4 but it seems one from any Event will do, so if you have some Brilliant Portkeys left those should let you complete this task as well.

You will, of course, need to open 5 One Year Later Brilliant Portkeys to complete the Registry image.

The Fortresses

This event will be quite Fortress-heavy. Thankfully, the Knight Bus is here to help us.

During this Brilliant Event all the task in part 4/4 relate to Wizarding Challenges. Winning 10 Challenges shouldn’t be an issue at all, since it doesn’t mention a specific Chamber. Completing three Challenges with at least 3 other players might require a bit of patience, since depending on your time zone it might not be quite so easy to find active players in a chamber.

The part that could be a little more difficult is earning 7,000 XP from Challenges. For this we definitely recommend going to higher Chambers if you can. Of course, be careful not to overreach, since you need to win the challenge to get XP and the higher the Chamber, the higher the cost in Potions and Spell Energy.

It’s also a good idea to chug some Brain Elixir before getting on the Knight Bus so that you can earn XP twice as fast.

And do keep in mind some quick tips for group battling:

  • Go to those enemies you’re proficient against first
    • Professors: Pixies and wWrewolves
    • Magizoologists: Erklings and Acromantulas
    • Aurors: Dark Wizards and Death Eaters
  • Use your profession’s spells and curses to help teammates and weaken all enemies on the board
  • Be brave; fight. We all notice when someone just sits back and waits for the other players to do all the work. Bad karma is a real thing.

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 if we’re playing from home. Make sure you have enough potions and ingredients.
  • Remember Master Notes cut down brewing time for Tonic for Trace Detection by half.
  • Baruffio’s Brain Elixir will come in handy when you need to earn 7,000 XP from Challenges (part 4/4) but you’ll also need to use it three times to complete the Bonus Assignment. Make sure you have enough left since some of the ingredients are hard to come by and brewing takes 12 hours.
  • Keep an eye out for those Ministry of Magic 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, and you get better rewards when you complete a Challenge with someone from your Friends list.
  • 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.
