Harry Potter: Wizards Unite has another big update, and it’s clear that the HPWU development team is listening to player feedback. The 2.1.0 update brings multiple bug fixes and gameplay improvements. Thank you hpwu_fazes for sharing this information both on reddit and in our Discord.
Wizards Unite Updates:
Note: Some of the changes below you will see live now. Others, like the Registry Pages for the new Foundables, will be live once the new app version is available in the various app stores.
- Added a new message before a Challenge to inform you if you are low on Spell Energy.
- You will now be able to see Spell Energy when you enter a Fortress to choose a Chamber.

- Lowered the amount of XP rewards in early Chambers (1-8) and increased the amount of XP rewards in higher-level Chambers (11+).
Note: With the nerfing of Chamber 1, speed running Fortresses is not as useful for gaining XP. We will update our guide with new calculations soon.

Wizards Unite Bug Fixes
Below you will find both bug fixes and known issues that the HPWU team is working to improve.
- Fixed an issue where you would not receive the Lessons tutorial if you reached Level 6 and tapped Lessons before getting through the full Professions tutorial.
- [Android Only] Fixed an issue that when using AR mode inside of a Portkey, navigation would drift when your device was not moving.
- Fixed an issue where in low data connectivity, the game became unresponsive for a short moment when collecting an Ingredient from the Map.
- Fixed an issue where if you tapped quickly through the Level 2 Daily Assignments tutorial, you would experience an issue where the Daily Treasure calendar appearing blank.
- Fixed an issue where after returning a Foundable and exiting the Rewards page, you would see the AR or AR+ background briefly before returning to the Map.
- Navigation may become inverted when moving the device around inside of the Portkey.
- [iPads Only] You will currently not be able to share your Ministry ID or Portrait images. Tapping the share button does not open the sharing options.
- When the device language is set to European Spanish, the game will load Latin American Spanish translations. To resolve this issue, update the language to “Spanish (European)” in the game’s settings menu.
- “Download All Assets” may occasionally fail before completing the full download.
- If you exit the game during the Hagrid Foundable tutorial, you may become unable to leave the Registry screen. Please do not exit the game during the tutorial to avoid this issue. Restarting the game a second time should fix this issue.
