Witches and wizards have another casual opportunity to travel back in time to the 1920s in Harry Potter: Wizards Unite!
No tasks, no rewards, no bundles–just a weekend of special Portkey Portmanteaus.
Thank you Niantic and WB Games for providing Wizards Unite Hub with early information so we can create Wizards Unite guides.
1920s Wizarding World Convergence Guide

As a reminder, this event focuses on three 1920s Wizarding World Registry pages:
- Newt’s Menagerie
- Circus Arcanus
- Paris Street
Prepare for the 1920s Wizarding World Convergence
This event is straightforward, quite similar to past 1920s Wizarding World Convergences.
Try to walk off your existing Portkeys. If you’re concerned about accidentally picking up a new one, wait until the 1920s Wizarding World Convergence begins to open your unlocked Portkeys.
If you have Gold to spend, buy Silver Keys so you can work on more Portkeys at once. It’s a better deal to buy 10 Silver Keys for 720 Gold.
If you can’t buy many Silver Keys, start returning all Foundables. This will help you collect Silver Keys through the occasional bonus rewards.
Brew Dawdle Draughts! When you open a 1920s Portkey Portmanteau, you’re rewarded with a 1920s Wizarding World Encounter–not a Fragment. If you use a Dawdle Draught, you won’t run the risk of the Foundable departing.
You can also work on Spell Mastery and Departure Denial in your SOS Training. While there are not any nodes specific to the new Registry pages, the Overall Spell Mastery and Overall Departure Denial can help you. Learn more at our wiki page!
Brew a few extra Exstimulo Potions too. These will also help you return the new 1920s Foundables.
Improve your Potions by investing in SOS Training. The following nodes will help your Exstimulo Potions be more effective, so you get additional benefits with less resources.
|CE I,5||Engarde!||Exstimulo Potion Potency Increase|
|CE I,9||Brunch or Linner?||Exstimulo Potion Potency Increase|
|CE II,22||Was Mundungus Here?||Exstimulo Potion Potency Increase|
|CE I,12||Awesome Blossom||Exstimulo Potion Duration Increase|
|CE I,8||Hand in Hand||Strong Exstimulo Potion Potency Increase|
|CE II,17||St. Mungos||Strong Exstimulo Potion Potency Increase|
|CE II,28||Ebb and Neap||Strong Exstimulo Potion Potency Increase|
|CE I,20||Ice Cream Social||Strong Exstimulo Potion Duration Increase|
|CE I,12||Volunteer Work||Potent Exstimulo Potion Potency Increase|
|CE II,32||Light My Fire||Potent Exstimulo Potion Potency Increase|
|CE III,38||Tempermental Cauldrons||Potent Exstimulo Potion Potency Increase|
|CE III,42||Wasted on the Old||Potent Exstimulo Potion Duration Increase|
How to Enjoy the 1920s Wizarding World Convergence
Unfortunately, Adventure Sync is still not working for many players. If you haven’t already, you can try these fixes for Adventure Sync.
- Uninstall game. Turn device off. Restart device. Reinstall the game. Reactivate Adventure Sync.
- If that doesn’t work, turn off Adventure Sync. Play with the game open.
While playing with the game open is not ideal for many players, keep in mind that ALL distance-tracking is broken for some players.
If your game does track distance, you can still enjoy this event. My advice is simple!
Walk a lot.
Check your Portkeys often, so you can replace them quickly.
Play in an area with lots of Map activity.
Use Exstimulo Potions and Dawdle Draughts as necessary, ideally when opening multiple Portkeys so the Potions carry over.
As a reminder, all of the 1920s Portkey Portmanteaus will appear teal on the Map, so there is not a way to focus on a specific Registry page.
Each page also has a unique Foundable that will only appear as a possible bonus drop, not as a 1920s Wizarding World Encounter. These are:
- Maledictus Poster
- Lestrange Family Tree Book
It feels almost silly to write such a basic guide, but Wizards Unite Hub is a resource for all players, including new and returning players. If this is your first 1920s Wizarding World Convergence, I hope this Wizards Unite guide helps!
