Harry Potter: Wizards Unite's second Community Day event is in the books and now it's time for players to look ahead to the next major event. Last month featured an exciting two-part Brilliant Event and it looks like August is ready to offer a similar grind. This time around the theme is Back to Hogwarts and players will be tracing found Hogwarts Express-themed Foundables through most of the August to celebrate.
Brilliant Events have been quite a success for Harry Potter: Wizards Unite so far. The extended events offer players many days to hunt down all of the available Foundables, while taking advantage of special event bonuses. The upcoming Back to Hogwarts event will be no different when part one kicks off on August 13 and sends players out into the world to track down iconic Platform 9 3/4 Foundables.
Part I - August 13th at 11am PT (Pacific Time) until Tuesday, August 20th
Part II - August 27th until September 3rd
Part I Trace Foundables
Brilliant Ravenclaw Student - Rowena Ravenclaw, founder of Ravenclaw House, valued intelligence and creativity among her students.
Brilliant Hufflepuff Student - Helga Hufflepuff, founder of Hufflepuff house, cherished students who exhibited loyalty and determination.
Brilliant Slytherin Student- The founder of Slytherin house, Salazar Slytherin, prized students who exhibited the traits of cunning and ambition.
Brilliant Gryffindor Student - The founder of Gryffindor house, Godric Gryffindor, held the traits bravery and chivalry in high esteem, and expected the same of his students.
Part I Other Foundables
Trolley Witch (Fortress Foundable) - A favourite fixture of the Hogwarts Express, the Trolley Witch keeps students supplied with Chocolate Frogs and Pumpkin Pasties during their journeys to and from Hogwarts.
Luggage Trolley (Event 3 km Porkey) - Students traveling to and from Hogwarts use these trolleys to transport their school trunks, and often run trolley-first at the hidden entrance to Platform 9 3/4.
Hogwarts Express Conductor (Event quest reward) - Charged with safely delivering students to and from Platform 9 3/4, the Hogwarts Express Conductor uses his golden pocketwatch and a hearty bellow of “All aboard!” to ensure that the train departs on time
Hogwarts Express (Event quest reward) - In the years following the establishment of the Statute of Secrecy, discretely delivering students to Hogwarts became a challenge. When Portkeys proved to be impractical, Minister for Magic Ottaline Gambol, who was intrigued by Muggle technology, suggested the use of a steam engine.
Part II Trace Foundables
Brilliant Sorting Hat - In addition to its student-sorting duties, the Sorting Hat performs a lyrical monologue to open the new term. Depending on the state of the wizarding world, the hat’s message ranges from welcoming and whimsical to dire and thought-provoking.
Part II Other Foundables
Hogsmeade Sign (Event 3 km Portkey) - The village of Hogsmeade is the only all-wizarding settlement in Britain. Visitors can shop at iconic destinations like Zonkos and Honeydukes, grab a Butterbeer at the Three Broomsticks, and glimpse — from a safe distance — the allegedly-haunted Shrieking Shack.
Winged Boar Statue (Quest reward) - Twin Winged Boar Statues flank the gates to Hogwarts, standing guard over the entrance to the castle.
Carriage (Quest reward) - Drawn by Thestrals, the Hogwarts Carriages appear to move on their own to most students. The Carriages transport students above first year to and from Hogsmeade Station at the start and end of term.
Hogwarts Boat (Fortress foundable) - First-year students travel from Hogsmeade Station to Hogwarts by boat, crossing the Black Lake in fair weather or foul.
Thestral (Quest reward) - Although the superstitious believe them to be ill omens, Thestrals are actually quite intelligent and docile creatures who have a keen sense of direction.
