Photo Mode

Added photo mode for the Golden Snitch Foundable.

General

Added “Download Essential Assets” to the settings menu for users with limited device storage. Choosing this option will download some of the game assets ahead of time but will not download all the game assets.

Removed the badge (red dot) from Download All Assets in Settings.

Wizards Unite Gifts

The gift feature discovered within 2.5.0 is reported to be very similar to the gift feature currently in place for Pokémon GO. This is NOT part of the official release and is not yet a feature in the game.

Gifts are packages of useful items that you can send to your Friends via Owl Post. They may contain rare Potion Ingredients, Spell Energy, Runestones, and even Foundables! Find gifts by dining at Inns, harvesting Greenhouses, and completing Wizarding Challenges. You can send a limited number of gifts each day, and a Friend must open your gift before you can send them another one.

You can acquire gifts by:

  • Dining at Inns
  • Harvesting Greenhouses
  • Completing Challenges in Fortresses

There will be three types of gifts:

  • Ancients Giftbox – rewards Runestones
  • Energetic Giftbox – rewards Spell Energy
  • Herbal Giftbox – rewards Ingredients

Potions (Bug Fix)

Fixed an issue with Potion Brewing Queue slots disappearing after collecting a Potion and immediately attempting to brew another Potion
