Are you brave enough to take on a spine-chilling Special Assignment this Halloween to earn exclusive limited-time rewards? First encountered in the Chamber of Secrets, Slytherin’s Basilisk will be making a limited-time appearance this Halloween… just make sure to avoid eye contact with anything slithering in the dark!

Using the Dark Arts Runestones you’ve been saving up all month, you'll be able to gain entry into a special Harrowing Halloween Chamber in Fortresses, where something sinister lies in wait… The more Dark Arts Runestones you and your friends use, and the higher their levels, the greater your chances of encountering the exclusive Slytherin’s Basilisk.

From Wednesday, October 30 at 11 a.m. PT to Friday, November 1 at 11 a.m. PT, be prepared for the following:

  • A limited-time Halloween Special Assignment with exclusive rewards, including a new Title and Badge for your Ministry ID.

  • Harrowing Halloween Chamber where Dark Arts Runestones will unlock unique foes including a Dark Witch, a Dark Ministry Official and Slytherin’s Basilisk, all of which grant increased Dark Arts Family XP.

  • Increased sightings of Dark Arts Family Traces, as well as Moaning Myrtle and Young Ginny Weasley Traces.

  • A free store bundle will be available in the Diagon Alley shop with Dark Arts Runestones and Spell Energy.

  • Partner Fortresses grant bonuses, including increased chances of encountering Slytherin’s Basilisk, bonus Dark Arts Family XP, and increased Spell Energy in Chambers level 4 and higher.
