Brilliant Event: Back to Hogwarts is the latest limited event in Harry Potter Wizards Unite. Like the previous Brilliant Event, Potter's Calamity, it's going to be split across two different weeks, with a one week break in the middle of the Brilliant Event.

The first week of Brilliant Event: Back to Hogwarts will run from August 13th to August 20th, with a start time of:

  • UK: 7pm (BST)
  • Europe: 8pm (CEST)
  • East Coast US: 2pm (EDT)
  • West Coast US: 11am (PDT)

Once August 20th has passed, you'll no longer be able to take part in the first part of this Brilliant Event or claim any of its rewards.

The second week of Brilliant Event: Back to Hogwarts will run from August 27th to September 3rd, with a start time of:

  • UK: 7pm (BST)
  • Europe: 8pm (CEST)
  • East Coast US: 2pm (EDT)
  • West Coast US: 11am (PDT)

When September 3rd is gone, the Brilliant Event will end and you'll no longer be able to claim any of its rewards.

Throughout the event there will be new Brilliant Foundables to discover and a variety of activities to complete, including unlocking Portkey Portmanteaus and completing Special Assignments.

Unlike Daily and SOS Assignments, these Special Assignments only appear during a Brilliant Event.

Brilliant Event: Back to Hogwarts quest steps explained

There are eight sets of Special Assignments in total for Brilliant Event: Back to Hogwarts. Each week of the event has its own set of four Special Assignments and each Special Assignment consists of three different tasks.

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.

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

You can only find Brilliant Traces during a Brilliant Event and they only contain Foundables that belong to that specific event.

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

As you collect Brilliant Foundables and complete Special Assignments, your Brilliant Event: Back to Hogwarts Family Ranking will increase in your Registry. When you level up this ranking, you'll receive Brilliant Runestones, which can be used in Wizarding Challenges.

To compete in a Wizarding Challenge, head to one of the many Fortresses scattered across the map. If you successfully complete the 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 Books, they are used to level up your chosen Profession and unlock new Strategic Spells.

You'll only receive a certain number of Restricted Section Books per Brilliant Event, 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. Back to Hogwarts, the third Brilliant Event, has also arrived in Harry Potter Wizards Unite! 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 thing to know about Brilliant Event: Back to Hogwarts

  • Speed and accuracy are both crucial to achieving a Great Spellcast, so try to find a Foundables whose spell you're familiar with.
  • Drinking Exstimulo Potions will also help you perform a Great Spellcast, by temporarily improving the rating of your casts.
  • Read through what each Strategic Spell does, before you spend your Restricted Section Books, because these precious tomes can only be used once.
  • If you have any Silver Keys left, then this Brilliant Event is the perfect time to use them on the special Portkey Portmanteaus you'll find.
