What is a Harry Potter Wizards Unite Community Day?

Community Days are designed to get players out and about playing Harry Potter Wizards Unite at the same time every month.

During each Community Day, you'll be able to take part in a limited-time event where you can take advantage of a variety of bonuses.

These bonuses could be anything from a decreased walking distance for Portkeys to an increased spawn rate for a specific Trace.

Taking part in Community Days will not only help you level up faster, but help you fill in your Foundable Registry.

How to take advantage of a Harry Potter Wizards Unite Community Day

Community_Day_Hogwarts_Student
This Community Day is themed around Wizarding Challenges.

Your first order of business for this Wizards Unite Community Day should be picking up your free Store Pack from Diagon Alley. January's free Store Pack includes 25 Spell Energy, one Tonic for Trace Detection and a selection of ingredients.

This Community Day is focused around the Wonders of the Wizarding World page, making this the perfect day to work on filling in the Room of Requirement Registry Page page. If you have any spare Dark Detectors then this would be a good day to use them on.

A good way to utilise the Dark Detectors would be to find a set of Inns that are within walking distance of one and other. You can then place your Dark Detector in one, or multiple, Inns and then walk between them, stocking up on Spell Energy as you go.

Make sure you drink a Baruffio's Brain Elixir as well to take advantage of its increased XP rate throughout the event.

It's also a good idea to ensure that you have a good stock of Exstimulo Potions ready to go.

Exstimulo Potions improve your Spell Casts during Traces and combat for a certain number of spell casts. These little bonuses will really help you save those more complicated Foundables.


At last, the Harry Potter: Wizard Unite's release date has arrived! Once you join a House in Harry Potter Wizards Unite, the first things you need to do is learn how to battle in Harry Potter Wizards Unite, how to compete in Wizarding Challenges and Fortresses, how to perform Potion Master Notes, how to use the Greenhouses in Harry Potter Wizards Unite and unlock Portkey Portmanteaus. After that, it's time to decide what's the best Profession between Auror, Magizoologist and Professor. The second week of Brilliant Event: Back to Hogwarts has started! Looking for things to unlock? Our in-progress Harry Potter Wizards Unite Level rewards list can give you a view of what's to come.


How to prepare for a Harry Potter Wizards Unite Community Day

Community_Day_Potion_Making
Potion brewing is a great way to prepare for a Community Day.

Preparation is key when it comes to Community Days. You don't want to get to the final battle in a Wizarding Challenge only to run out of Spell Energy.

The first step of taking full advantage of a Community Day is to make sure you're fully stoked on Spell Energy. Without Spell Energy you won't be able to confront Confoundables, battle in Wizarding Challenges or helping out in Greenhouses.

You should also make sure that you're stocked up on Potions. You'll want to start brewing your potions several days in advance, as it can take some time to make all the potions you might need.

Both Barrufio's Brain Elixir and any form Exstimulo Potions are ideal for this Community Day.

Since this Community Day also has a focus on Portkey Portmantaus it's a good idea to complete any outstanding Portkeys, which you might have. This will allow you to take full advantage of the Community Day bonus.

Community Days are also an excellent time to complete SOS Assignments and Registry pages. With the increased spawn rate for Trace, you should be able to discover some of those secret, story-based items.
