It’s that time again. Part II of the Brilliant Event is about to begin, and this time the Calamity even swept away Constance Pickering herself! 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 II Brilliant Event.

One Year Later II Brilliant Event

Lasting an entire week as usual (from June 16th to June 23rd), this will be the second part of the One Year Later Brilliant Event. This event will let us complete the second 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 II 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 very little Brewing planning needed for this event. We will need to brew 3 Healing Potions in part 3/4 which should be easy enough provided that you have the necessary ingredients or can go out to find them. This Potion takes 2 hours to brew, so keep that in mind if you start brewing before you have the ingredients for all three. Once you pop the first Potion into the cauldron you will have to queue the next two before that one is complete if you’re trying to pre-brew. Otherwise you’ll need to wait to reach part 3/4 and then collect that one and start brewing the next to.

We’ll also need to use 5 Potions in Wizarding Challenges to complete part 4/4. We can use any Potion here among the available ones for Wizarding Challenges: (any) Exstimulo Potion, Healing Potion, Wit-Sharpening Potion and (either) Invigoration Draughts. The Healing Potions from the previous part will probably come in handy here.

The Family Foundables

During this event we will see an increased number of some Ministry of Magic Foundables. Keep an eye out for high-threat one since they will come in handy when trying to earn 600 Ministry of Magic Family XP in part 4/4.

The Fortresses

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

There are two new Fortress-related tasks in this event: Earn Brilliant One Year Later Runestone and earn 1 Constance Pickering Foundable (which we can only get as a Fortress reward).

We will also need to defeat 20 Foes in part 2/4, and use 2 Brilliant Runestones (part 2/4) and 3 Ministry of Magic Runestones (4/4)

These tasks should not be difficult or time consuming at all (unless, of course, the drop ratio for Constance Fragments goes wonky).

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.

  • Earn 10,000 Wizarding XP from Challenges – 1 Red Spellbook
  • Return 30 Brilliant Harry, Ron or Hermione – 1 Red Spellbook
  • Return 15 Brilliant Kingsley Shacklebolt – 1 Red Spellbook
  • Win in your highest unlocked Chamber – +10 Spell Energy Vault extension (note: this task has appeared before and was always changed before the actual event, so we expect it might change once more to a different Fortress-related task)

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 throughout, but especially when you need to earn 10,000 XP from Challenges (Bonus Assignment)
  • 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 (although this time around you can get those Fragments from completing all Bonus Assignment tasks). 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.
