Harry Potter: Wizards Unite finally revealed what’s planned this December. Taking a quick look at the calendar, there’s actually not much and it appears to be the usual set of activities. Anyway, the main plan is to celebrate the holiday season at Hogwarts.

Harry Potter fans know that in the series, the holidays often play some important role in the story. In Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, for example, it's the season when Harry received the Invisibility Cloak. In Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, it's when the trio made and drank Polyjuice Potion. You probably get the drift.

Going back to the game, the Hogwarts for the Holidays Brilliant Event Part 1 has begun. The event involves wizards bringing back the Brilliant Foundables. The Foundables are found in these locations:

  • Argus Filch - Wizarding Challenges
  • Fat Friar - Brilliant Portkey
  • Bloody Baron - Brilliant Portkey
  • Brilliant Salazar Slytherin Portrait - Encounter
  • Brilliant Helga Hufflepuff Portrait - Encounter

The event also adds changes to the Brilliant Portkeys. Trainers will encounter new environments - Common Rooms for Hufflepuff and Slytherin. That’s not all! The Portkeys are set at 1.5 km. Take note that Part 1 Portkeys hand out Part 1 rewards regardless of when you open them. Part 1 ends December 8 at 2:00 PM ET.

The second event is the December Community Day, scheduled on December 12 from 12:01 AM to 11:59 PM, local time. Wizards worldwide need to prepare their brooms, take them to the skies, and visit Quidditch Pitch II.

Meanwhile, the Hogwarts for the Holidays Brilliant Event Part 2 starts December 22 until December 29 at 2:00 PM ET. Trainers have to return Brilliant Foundables from the Brilliant Moving Staircase II. These include Portraits of Godric Gryffindor and Rowena Ravenclaw.

The Portkeys for that event are at 1.5km as well. Remember, Part 1 Portkeys will give you Part 1 rewards anytime you open them, even if you wait to open them during Part 2. Keep an eye out for Bonus Assignments coming to the game after the main tasks are complete!

The celebration will end with the Special Holiday Event starting December 29 at 2:00 PM ET until January 7 at 2:00 PM ET. Special tasks and exciting rewards will go live during the closing event.
