This weekend, August 31st & September 1st, marks not only the first Wizards Unite Fan Festival taking place, but also the first global challenge: Day of the Dragons.
Participants at the Harry Potter: Wizards Unite Fan Festival will not be the only ones who get to experience the new content coming to the game including new Portkeys and the much anticipated introduction of Dragons! While Fan Festival attendees will experience all of the new Dragons and Portmanteaus, players all over the world will also be competing to unlock new content in their regions via special Portkeys that lead to Dragon Eggs. If each region unlocks enough dragon eggs, those dragons will show up on their area!
Dragons Coming to Harry Potter: Wizards Unite Fan Festival
From the Peruvian Vipertooth to the Chinese Fireball, Dragons will be making their first appearance in the game as special Oddities during Harry Potter: Wizards Unite Fan Festival in Indianapolis this August 31 – September 1. Event attendees will assist Charlie Weasley, expert Dragon-handler, with Special Assignments involving these creatures. Once the Fan Festival concludes, the different Dragon varieties will depart and only appear in certain regions around the world starting on September 7.
You’ll be able to find the first four Dragons in the following locations:
Attendees will also have the opportunity to unlock a special reward for the rest of the world as they encounter Dragon Oddities in Indianapolis. Returning a total of 150,000 Dragons will unlock a special 3-hour Day of the Dragons event on September 7 in your region at the following times:
Asia-Pacific: September 7, from 1:00 P.M. to 4:00 P.M. AEST (UTC +10)
Europe, the Middle East, Africa and India: September 7, from 10:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M. UTC
Americas and Greenland: September 7, from 11:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M. PDT (UTC -7)
Fan Festival Global Challenge
We’re excited to announce the Fan Festival Global Challenge, a challenge in which players all around the world will be able to encounter four new types of Portkey Portmanteaus throughout the weekend. Each of these special Portmanteaus will contain a Portkey that will transport you to the Forbidden Forest where you’ll have the opportunity to collect one of four Dragon Eggs. You’ll be able to easily identify these special Portmanteaus on the map, as they’ll match the color of the Dragon Egg found within.
Throughout the weekend we’ll be tracking the number of Dragon Eggs collected, and if certain milestones are reached, players will unlock a variety of rewards starting from September 2 at 10:00 A.M. PDT to September 9 at 10 A.M. PDT. Each Dragon Egg is associated with a reward shown below, so make sure to collect Portmanteaus linked with the reward you’re most interested in earning. We’ll be posting progress updates on our social channels throughout the event, so make sure to follow along!
If attendees are successful, a special Day of the Dragons event will take place on September 7. During this 3-hour period, each region will be visited by a Dragon not typically found in the area. The exact type of Dragon will depend on which type of Dragon Egg was collected the most in that specific region during the Global Challenge. For example, if players in Asia collect more Antipodean Opaleye Dragon eggs than any other type during the Global Challenge, they will encounter Antipodean Opaleye Oddities for the 3-hour event and receive bonus XP for all Dragons returned during the Day of the Dragons!
