A new Friends update has been released, featuring many aspects that enhance your experience of making even more friends on Potterworld! From seeing who’s online first and where they are on your friends list, to favoriting specific friends, there are many things to explore as you run the command /f. Having an unlimited amount of friends and seeing who's offline alphabetically has also been introduced! You can even accept requests and invites just by clicking on the message, with its own notifications that can be toggled on and off. We hope you enjoy this update brought to you by our amazing Development team!​
The Potterworld team was so excited for the comeback of our seasonal May The Fourth Event! Witches & wizards were able to jump into the Centennial Hawk & explore the universe! May The Fourth has exciting & fun mini games, quests, & rewards. With a new icon in student’s Quest Journals they have been able to complete the event’s 3 main quests & 2 side quests which renew every 12 hours. Others were able to hop into the electrifying mini games including Star Battle FFA, Domination, Escort Payload, Mazes, Droppers, & more. Oh, and don’t forget to use your well-earned Star Tokens to purchase unique rewards inside the Ash Spur Marketplace before the event ends on June 4th! Until next time, May The Fourth be with you.​
Join Droobledore and Kevin in a magical celebration of Potterworld's 8th Anniversary! Travel back in time to nostalgic Potterworld locations, such as Oakport, the original Great Hall, and survival. If you're a newer player, experiencing these pieces of the server's history is an opportunity you won't want to miss! You can also earn some cool rewards such as the Drooballoon, Anniversary-themed fireworks, and some Happy Anniversary emotes! Be sure to check everything out before the end of the event on June 11th!​
With the release of Gameplay Update 1.5.0, Talents have been reintroduced to the server in order to replace Loadouts and the Spell Tree! Starting from Level 16, players will gain access to 5 tiers with the Duelist, Transfigurer, and Mediwizard branches to be able to customize their characters. To customize your own Talents, head on over to /me and click the Talents icon! Additionally, spells and gear have also been reblanced to account for the new changes. Outside of the changes brought by Talents, the Enchantress and Butcher's health have been adjusted in Gauntlet, and the Unspeakable Team has added a few quality of life patches based on feedback from players!​
As May Fourth passed, the Star Battle event continued with the special games: Domination, Escort Payload, and FFA. Capturing three points around the map with your team is the objective of Domination. In Escort Payload, Rebels are tasked to move a payload through the course. As an Imperial, it is their job to disrupt the movement of the payload to stop it from reaching the end. In FFA, there is no required objective- it's all about killing nearby mobs and players. With tournaments taking place for each, being a part of the Top 5 may be appealing! Each game offers their Top 5 the Toy N-Scope Sniper and Top 1 the Star Battle Champion Prefixes, with only Domination and Escort Payload rewarding their Top 3 with the Toy Speeder Bike, seeing as you can obtain the Toy Speeder Bike by unlocking all 30 items in FFA. The games rotate every day at approximately 3pm starting with FFA, Escort Payload, Domination, and repeat.​

The 5th Battle of Potterworld has just begun! In the ruins of Hogsworth one can find the infamous Grux, continuing his mission to wreak destruction all over the Wizarding World. You and 3 other people have the chance to stop him once and for all, in an all new Dungeon event that has just been released! To access, run the command /dungeon to be put in a queue alongside other players, where you will soon be teleported to the ruined Great Hall. The rest of the Dungeon awaits you, featuring puzzles and bosses that are up to you and your team to face! Once a Dungeon is completed, you are awarded 1 Roleplay Token. Working your way towards earning 10 Roleplay Tokens from this Dungeon can unlock the exclusive Roleplay Staff wand appearance! Good luck, and destroy Grux!​

This month, the Inquisitors hosted a Community Engagement Event that took us to the stars! The players got to take a trip to the Intergalactic Arcade, which allowed them to explore and play their favorite games. However, the main event was The Space Explorer's Scavenger Hunt. Players were divided into eight teams and tasked to work together to find all the clues and solve the mystery. These clues were spread out across different maps, making it even more exciting! Now let's all thank the Inquisitorial Squad for hosting an event that was just out of this world! We hope to see you all at the next Community Engagement!​
