Face off against the Malfoys and try not to faint to the magical baby creatures this month in “Wizards Unite”
The start of a new month brings with it a set of new challenges and Harry Potter: Wizards Unite events. Developer Niantic has released the May Events Calendar.
While in April players searched for members and items of the most wonderful wizarding family, May begins with players facing one of the most difficult families in the wizarding world. Although it is claimed that they were redeemed in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the Malfoys had been known to fans as villains for so long. For May’s Opponents Event 1, which starts today and ends on May 3 at 11:00 a.m. PDT, players will take on Draco Malfoy and his mother, Narcissa, alongside an increase in Death Eater quirks. You can check out the full details of the first Adversaries event for May below:
- Increased adverse sightings from members of the Malfoy family
- Death Eater quirks increased
- Increased spawns of Spirit Sharpening Potion ingredients
- Guaranteed Gryffindor Sword in Dark Chamber I and above
- Master Notes will reduce the brewing time of all Exstimulo and Wit-Sharpening Potions variants by 25%.
- Increased Wizard XP, Challenge Family XP, and Energy rewards after completing Wizard Challenges
It’s wonderful that Niantic pays tribute to the late Helen McCrory, the actor who brought Narcissa to life, from the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince movie adaptation. McCrory tragically passed away earlier this month from cancer.
At the end of May’s First Opponents Event, the First Shining Event begins. Starting May 3 at 11 a.m. PDT, fans can take part in the first part of the Creature Discomforts Brilliant event, in which players will search for the Brilliant Foundables belonging to Brilliant Hagrid’s Hut. According to Niantic, that means magical baby creatures, including Brilliant Baby Three-Headed Dog and Brilliant Baby Mooncalf encounters. Players will also be looking for other shiny foundables such as Hagrid’s Wooden Flute after defeating magical challenges, Baby Acromantula after completing tasks, and a Bottle of Acromantula Venom passing through a Shiny Portkey. You can also expect an increase in the appearances of the Three-Headed Dog and Mooncalf Foundable. Creatures Get In The Way Brilliant Events Part 1 ends May 10 at 11 p.m. PDT.
If you didn’t get enough satisfaction by casting a spell on the recipient five times Weekly witchThe most charming smile prize back in February, you have another chance. For May’s Opponents Event 2, starting May 10 at 11 a.m. PDT, Fenrir Greyback and Gilderoy Lockhart will return as Opponents for Wizards and Wizards in Dueling until May 13 at 11 a.m. PDT.
As Muggles Across America Gather For Sunday Night Football, Witches And Wizards Magicians unite will meet at the Quidditch booths to witness the wizarding world’s most popular sport. Coinciding with the return of professional American football shows, Niantic has scheduled May 2021 Community Day for Sunday, May 16. From 12:01 p.m. to 11:59 p.m. local time, you’ll be looking for Foundables Quidditch fan Neville Longbottom and Quidditch. Fan Hermione Granger.
And finally, Creature Discomforts Brilliant Event 2 concludes the month on May 17 at 11 a.m. PDT. For this Brilliant Event, players will be looking for Brilliant Foundables belonging to Brilliant Mountainside, including Brilliant Baby Chinese Fireball and Brilliant Baby Troll, which will likely be encounters. The art also suggests that there will be Brilliant Baby Thestral and Brilliant Baby Erumpent which will likely be obtained through wizarding challenges, tasks, or portkeys. The creature disturbs itself. Brilliant Event Part 2 ends May 24 at 11 a.m. PDT.
It is touching that the developers quickly organized this weekend of the Adversaries event in honor of Helen McCrory. This will give players a moment to remember her while they are playing. Magicians unite throughout the weekend. What do you think of the game’s tribute to the deceased actor? In what other ways do you think Niantic can continue to remember McCrory?
