Harry Potter: Wizards Unite Potter's Calamity event — Tips, Tricks, and Full Guide

The next Harry Potter: Wizards Unite Brilliant Event is here, and it's running from July 16, 2019, until July 23, 2019. This special in-game event — called Potter's Calamity — 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 Potter's Calamity event is split into two weeks, and each week has separate rewards, meaning there's even more tasks to complete, Foundables to return, and Restricted Books to be rewarded! This 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 Potter's Calamity event, plus even share a few tips and tricks on how to make sure you complete the event to the fullest extent!

Restricted Books from Potter's Calamity

If you've been levelling up your Profession, you've likely come across skills or spells that need Restricted Books before you can unlock them.

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.

  • I deleted this game from my iPhone the other day for two reasons. One, it is virtually unplayable in my area because you are constantly running out of spell energy and there are no Inns in my city at all, you have to drive 10 miles to the next town to find one and then spend an hour or so reloading. Not acceptable at all.
    Second, the game is nothing but a money grab since you are constantly having to spend real money to upgrade the storage space for potion ingredients, potions, and other items, or buying ingredients that simply are not available to find lying around. Of course this can be done with gold coins as well, but those are exceedingly rare in the game and you have to spend more real money to get some to just complete a potion recipe because you will never find all the necessary ingredients. Eventually it gets to where you ask yourself "What's the point?".
    I could add a third reason that is the game just gets monotonous after a while when all you do is interact with the same elements and foundables over and over and over again. There doesn't seem to be any sort of progression regime to the game or end-goal or anything like that. Essentially, it got boring very quickly.
