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

Tips and tricks for the Harry Potter: Wizards Unite Fantastic Flora and Fauna Event

While our best tips and tricks for Harry Potter: Wizards Unite are great for playing the game at all times. Here are a few extra tips for specifically for the Fantastic Flora and Fauna event!

Make sure to open your assignment tracker!

Some people are still experiencing an issue where their daily assignments won't track if they don't first open up the Assignment tracker. To be extra safe, make sure you take a second when you load up your game, to open the Assignment tracker before you do anything else. so you get credit for all your hard work!

Keep some 2 KM Portkey Portmanteaus waiting

You'll notice that some of the tasks required during the event to get rewards (the most precious being Restricted Books), will require you to unlock Portkey Portmanteaus; however, which kind of Portmanteaus doesn't matter.

Keep some 2KM Portmanteaus on hand and ready to go so you can complete those specific tasks in the shortest amount of time possible. Also, it may be worth to use some of your precious Silver keys on the 2KM Portmanteaus (something we normally advise against) to complete the tasks even faster!

Open Portkey Portmanteaus when you have the chance

The special 7KM Portmanteaus pop up on the map while you're walking around just like any other Portmanteau in the game, which means, if you have eight Portmanteaus or Portkey sitting in your inventory, you won't have a chance to grab any of the special ones. Make sure you don't miss out on any of the 7KM Portmanteaus by having a full inventory of unopened Portkeys.

Use Brilliant Runestones in Wizarding Challenges

As you return Foundable fragments to the special Brilliant Event Registry page, you'll earn Family XP (like any other Registry page) which will earn you Treasure Trunks when you rank up. These treasure trunks will have special Brilliant Runestones that you can use in Wizarding Challenges.

What Runestones do in Harry Potter: Wizards Unite

Make sure you use these Runestones to enter battles in Fortresses, it will be the only way to earn some event rewards and complete your Brilliant Registry page!

Low level Wizarding Challenges will save you time and resources

To find all the Foundables during the Fantatsic Flora and Fauna Event, you'll need to compete in Wizarding Challenges using Brilliant Runestones. Its a good idea to use these Runestones (which are only level one) on low-level chambers. This way you can collect the Foundable Fragments you need quicker and use less resources. No need to waste a bunch of potions if you can find the Foundables in low level chambers!

  • I cannot collect any of these special foundables because after just a couple of spell attempts, they vanish. I could use a dawdle-potion to make them hang around longer but I can't store the necessary potion ingredients because of such a pitiful amount of ingredient storage space. Then I cannot store the potions I do brew because of the pitiful amount of potion storage space. I could buy ingredients with gold coins but you only get a pitiful few when changing levels. I could also increase my vault storage space with gold coins but it takes huge amounts of coins to do that and the only way of getting those is to spend real money. Large amounts of real money. Every day. Nope, this game is not for me, I have played it since it came out and it has pretty much run its course for me.
