July Community Day is the first ever Community Day event in Wizards Unite, taking place on July 20th at different times in various regions of the world. The event features increased appearance of Hogwarts School Traces, general increase in the amount of Traces, triple XP from Baruffio’s Brain Elixir, 1 hour long Dark Detectors and a special Free Store Pack with 50 Spell Energy and 1 Baruffio’s Brain Elixir.

Preparing for the event
Make sure that your Spell Energy is full before the event starts in your region. The Free Store Pack can be used at any point and it makes sense to use it when it’s needed rather than use it at the beginning of the event.
Make sure that you have enough stock of Exstimulo Potions, as these bad boys increase the chance of completing a Trace faster and easier, which is especially useful when dealing with higher rarity Foundables:
|Exstimulo Potion||Strong Exstimulo Potion||Potent Exstimulo Potion|
The Exstimulo Potion family needs a lot of ingredients, but here’s a quick chart that shows which ones you need:
|Shared between all Exstimulo Potions||Bitter Root
|Additional Exstimulo Potion ingredient||Granian Hair|
|Additional Strong Exstimulo Potion ingredient||Abraxan Hair|
|Additional Potent Exstimulo Potion ingredient||Unicorn Hair|
In addition to Exstimulo Potions, you should stock up on Baruffio’s Brain Elixir. The gains are significant, albeit a bit disappointing given it’s not 3 times the normal 2x bonus, but rather just 3x XP. Well, it would be a bit silly if it was 6x XP.
General Community Day Tips and Tricks
- Play with an active Baruffio’s Potion throughout the whole event
- There’s a high chance that the event will bug out in the APAC region (happened often in Pokemon GO). We’ll update you if that happens
- Be sure to find an area where there are plenty of Inns. Running out of Spell Energy will ruin your experience and hamper your ability to grind XP. Our Guide to Inns can help you out here.
- If possible, increase your Spell Energy capacity before the event starts and start the event with 100% Spell Energy. Our Guide to Managing Spell Energy in Wizards Unite can help a lot.
- Play with a group. It’s always more fun to play in groups, especially if the area you’re playing in has Fortresses in it.
- Be sure to have an active Portkey so your distance walked counts towards that as well.
- Be sure to have an external battery. Our editor-in-chief Brita has shared a great round-up of top-rated power banks on Amazon. Order ASAP to get yours before Community Day!
- Bring sun cream and apply it before the event.
- Carry a water bottle and stay hydrated.
