Wizards Unite Updates

Discover everything new in Wizards Unite!

A new Brilliant Event is coming soon. Stay tuned for details!


Potions that last for more than 1 spell cast will now work across Encounters! This means that if you use an Exstimulo Potion and return the Foundable on the first spell cast, the Exstimulo will work on the next Trace you tap!

This will also work in Wizarding Challenges. If you defeat a Foe and still have uses left on a Potion, it will apply to the next Foe.

Ministry ID Portrait

You will now default to your current portrait instead of the camera feed when editing your portrait so you do not have to take a new picture to view new stickers, frames, filters, or lenses.

Photo Mode

The Pixie Oddity Encounter will now feature Photo Mode. Be creative with your AR photography!

Alert System

You will now see a message pop up on your screen when you have completed a Daily Task, an Achievement, or a Quest.

Wizards Unite Bug Fixes

As always, the HPWU developers continue to work hard at eliminating bugs in the game.


Fixed an issue with nodes on a player’s Profession skill tree being badged even when the player does not have the items needed for an upgrade.

Wizarding Challenges

Fixed an issue where Foes appeared to receive Stamina or have negative Stamina after being attacked or defeated.

Aurors Only: Fixed an issue where Aurors did not receive Focus when they defeated a Foe with the Bat-Bogey Hex.


Android Only: Fixed an issue with players getting stuck on the loading screen when trying to log into the game with a Google account, after creating a Niantic Kid’s Account.

Fixed an issue where players were unable to reach Level 60 and were stuck at 1 XP in Level 59.

Fixed an issue where switching from AR to Park Mode during an Encounter caused the visuals to shake.

Known Issues in Wizards Unite

The HPWU developers know about the following issues. They’re working to fix them.


Players may still see badges (red dots) on Achievements even if they have scrolled through the Achievements list.

Ministry ID

Android Q Only: Players on Android Q may not be able to display animated stickers on the Ministry ID Portrait.


Foundables that are not from Encounters can sometimes have a high Seen number, even if they are not Seen in Encounters.

Foundables in Photo Mode may flip around when a player taps on the Foundable to reposition it.

Wizarding Challenges

Players may not be able to re-enter a Wizarding Challenge if they are kicked out due to a connection issue.

Players may experience an unresponsive Map if they leave during a Wizarding Challenge and return to a Defeat screen.

Players may not be able to re-enter a Wizarding Challenge when they are on a low or unstable connection.


When a rental Cauldron has expired, it may appear that you can still add Potions to the Queue, when you cannot.

Players may receive an error when they attempt to collect a brewed Potion.

Android Only: Players may not see a Potion added to their Queue when they start brewing from the Recipes screen. Tap out of the Recipes screen to see the Potion in the Queue.

Alert System

Players may not see a message pop up when they have completed +5 or +10 of a Daily Task, Achievement, or Quest.

It also looks like they removed the “Manage” page on potions ingredients, thus sending you straight to being able to delete ingredients and reduce your stock. A fine time saver!

Potions lasting across encounters is huge! Does it work across multiple fights in challenges? If you have remaining casts at the end of a challenge does it carry over to encounters? I can’t wait to test that out.

Still waiting for Adventure Sync.

Will we see adventure sync eventually. If I leave my mobile on the game the battery drains too fast. But without nothing registers walking wise.

Am I the only one a bit shocked that, less than 24 hours before the release of the next Brilliant Event, all the info we get is that it’s about to happen tomorrow? No comment on why it’s on Friday now, no leaks as to the requirements… (?)

Ah, too late to edit or delete this. I meant Thursday, of course. 🙂
And just now, I got a push from Discord with the first bit of news on the event. Thanks!
