Will the professions be like teams? Should you choose the same profession than your friends in order to play with them? Asked via Twitter and relayed here so we have all the questions in one place.

Answered question

I would think of Professions as a role instead of a team. It’s best to have at least one of each role. Unlike Pokemon Go where teams don’t really mean anything.. Professions will actually have different skills, and be effective for different enemies. Since Professions are roles, this is why you can switch between them. You don’t have to be the same Profession to play with your friends.

Indeed, the official website even says this:

“To further develop your wizarding skills, you can also choose to specialize in different magical Professions. Aurors, Magizoologists, and Professors each have their own unique skills and abilities that will come in handy at different times, particularly during Wizarding Challenges. Team up and strategize with witches and wizards from other Professions to tip the scales in your favor.”
