As you can see from the list of tasks, there is no longer any tasks that need you to brew Potions. All that needs to be done Potions-wise is to use a specific number of them. The most difficult task involves returning high threat Foundables. These can be difficult to find or may require you to stock up on some potions to overcome them.

Portkeys

Like in previous events, you need to open Portkeys in order to get the required Foundables. With the Back to Hogwarts Brilliant Event, players need to open the 3-km Portkeys. Opening a Portkey teleports you to the Hogwarts Express. Here you get the chance to obtain the Luggage Trolley Foundable.

Fortress

The last task requires players to go inside a Fortress and fight. Here you get the chance to find the Trolley Witch Foundable.

Remember that this is just Week 1 of the event. Stay tuned for our guide when Week 2 arrives.
