Harry Potter: Wizards Unite Fantastic Flora & Fauna event — Tips, Tricks, and Full Guide

The very first Harry Potter: Wizards Unite Brilliant Event is here, and it's running from July 3, 2019, until July 10, 2019. This special in-game event — called Fantastic Flora and Fauna — will give you access to get Restricted Books to help you advance on your Profession skill tree, as well as new Foundables to return and Portkey Portmanteaus to open!

The event is only here for a limited time, meaning you need to get out and play as much as you can to ensure you can reap all the rewards. This guide will help you get the most out of the Fantastic Flora and Fauna event, plus even share a few tips and tricks on how to make sure you complete the event to the fullest extent!

How to get Restricted Books in Harry Potter: Wizards Unite

If you've been leveling up your Profession, you've likely come across skills or spells that need Restricted Books before you can unlock them. Special events — like the Fantastic Flora and Fauna — are the only way to get access to these rare books.

You'll receive Restricted Books as rewards for completing Special Assignments in your Assignment Tracker. The assignments will vary and you'll only get a few at a time, which you'll need to complete in full before you can move on to the next set of tasks! So do your best to complete them as quickly and efficiently as possible.
