What are Brilliant Traces in Harry Potter Wizards Unite?

Brilliant Traces only appear during a Brilliant Event. Just like with regular Traces, selecting one will take you to a Foundable that needs to be freed from a Confoundable. Only these Foundables will be specific to the Brilliant Event.

Brilliant Traces are purple with an exclamation mark on them and a beam of purple light running through them.

How to find and use Brilliant Runestones in Harry Potter Wizards Unite

As you collect Brilliant Foundables and complete Special Assignments, your Brilliant Event: Potter's Calamity Ranking will increase. When you increase this ranking you will receive Brilliant Runestones, which can be used in the Wizarding Challenges that can be found in the Fortresses.

If you successfully complete a Wizarding Challenge while using a Brilliant Runestone, you may be rewarded with a Brilliant Foundable Fragment.

What to do with Restricted Section Books in Harry Potter Wizards Unite

Restricted Section Books are books that can only be obtained during Brilliant Events. Like Scrolls and Red Spell Book, they are used to level up your chosen Profession and unlock new Strategic Spells.

You will only receive a certain number of Restricted Section Books per Brilliant event, 30 for Brilliant Event: Potter's Calamity, so make your choices wisely.


At last, the Harry Potter: Wizard Unite's release date has arrived! Once you join a House in Harry Potter Wizards Unite, the first things you need to do is learn how to battle in Harry Potter Wizards Unite, how to compete in Wizarding Challenges and Fortresses, how to perform Potion Master Notes, how to use the Greenhouses in Harry Potter Wizards Unite and unlock Portkey Portmanteaus. After that, it's time to decide what's the best Profession between Auror, Magizoologist and Professor. The second week of Brilliant Event: Back to Hogwarts has started! Looking for things to unlock? Our in-progress Harry Potter Wizards Unite Level rewards list can give you a view of what's to come.


Other things to know about Brilliant Event: Potter's Calamity:

  • Make sure you save two to three Silver Keys for the 7km Brilliant Portkey Portmanteaus. This will save you a lot of time, especially if you want to fill in the Brilliant Potter's Calamity Registry page - you might not get your desired Foundable on your first Portkey Portmanteaus.
  • If you're stuck on performing a Masterful Spellcast, then try drinking a Exstimulo Potion as it will temporarily improve your spell casts.
  • Speed and accuracy are both crucial to achieving a Masterful Spellcast, so pick a spell you are familiar with.
  • Take the time to read through which each Strategic Spell does before you use those Restricted Section Books - you can only use those precious tomes once.
