Wizards watch out as it appears the Calamity is bringing some more problems and it has been found out to be the cause of dark magic coming from Knockturn Alley. This has resulted in seeds of doubt and confusion being create within the Ministry. All of these mean one thing: time to prepare your wands and defend against the dark arts.

This October in Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, it’s time to find out what is behind this rather sinister turn. Today we look at all the events happening for October.

Let’s start with the earliest event which is the October Wizarding Weekend. It’s going to start this Friday, October 2 at 2:00 PM ET and run through October 5 at 2:00 PM ET. Here’s what you need to know:

  • There’s going to be Special Assignments focused on returning Dark Arts Foundables with rewards including Potions, Spell Books, Runestones, Spell Energy, Silver Key and DADA Books.
  • There’s increased sightings of the Magick Moste Evile, Thestral, Portrait of Voldemort, Percival Graves and Tom Riddle Foundables on the Map and from Tonic for Trace Detection.
  • Wizards have a chance to receive a Dark Arts Runestone after returning event Traces.

After the Wizarding Weekend, there’s going to be no rest for the good guys as the Darkness Rising Brilliant Event Part 1 starts on Tuesday, October 6 at 2:00 PM ET. In this one, players need to help return Brilliant Foundables from Knockturn Alley that include the likes of Snatchers and Poachers. The event ends on October 13 at 2:00 PM ET.

Darkness Rising Brilliant Event Part 2, meanwhile, begins on October 20 at 2:00 PM ET and ends on October 27 at 2:00 PM ET. For this part of the event, players need to return Brillaint Foundables from Borgin and Burkes. This means Dark Witches and Dark Wizards.

That’s not all, as in between the Brilliant Events are two Community Days. That’s right, there’s going to be two of them for October.

The first is the September Makeup Community Day. This is going to be all day on Saturday, October 17 from 12:001 AM to 11:59 PM, local time. During this event, be sure that all your paperwork is in order since it allows you entry to the Ministry Atrium. Here you should be able to encounter, among others, Ministry Officials and Flocks of Interdepartmental Memos.

The October Community Day, meanwhile, runs all day on Sunday, October 18. Everyone’s invited to Weasley’s Wizarding Wheezes, so prepare for pranks and mischief.
