Niantic, the creative team behind Pokemon Go, released their new augmented reality mobile game today. The new title is called Harry Potter: Wizards Unite and features similar mechanics to Pokemon Go, including the ability to face off against strange and otherworldly creatures. If you want to get a head start in this game, then you are going to want to pay attention to our top five tips.

1. Potion Ingredients Appear at Different Times of the Day

If you find yourself needing bountiful amounts of potion ingredients, you will unfortunately have to wait from time to time. You can explore the world around you to discover potion ingredients. However, it is important to note that the ingredients you discover in certain areas will change based on the time of the day.

2. Here Are Some Useful Potion Recipes and Master Notes

You will need certain resources to make your potions, sure. However, you are also going to need to take advantage of master notes. Master notes are hidden sequences you can perform while brewing a potion in order to hasten the brewing process.

After initiating the brewing process, simply tap on the wooden spoon near the brewing cauldron. Then, you will see a series of squares at the top of the screen. This will tell you how many actions you need to perform in order to complete the potion’s master note. After performing the master note correctly three times, the master note will permanently be revealed to you.

Rather than use trial and error to figure out the master notes, check them out below along will some other useful potion information.

3. You Can Speed Up Your Game With This Easy Trick

One issue many players are having at the moment is that Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is running a little slow. The increasingly high number of current players is likely putting a strain on Niantic’s servers at the moment. That being said, there is a way around this issue. You are going to want to download the game’s assets to your phone.

First, tap on the suitcase icon at the bottom of your screen. After being channeled to the next screen, tap on the gears icon on the top left of your screen. This will bring you to the setting menu.

Next, make your way to the bottom of the settings menu. From there, click on the “Download All Assets” option. Completing this action will make the game require communication with Niantic’s servers during your playtime. With less information needing to be transferred from the internet, your game will begin to run much faster.

4. Check Into Nearby Inns Regularly to Get More Spell Energy

Inns provide spell energy, a much needed resource for casting spells. Each dish you eat grants you spell energy and inns will only provide a finite number of dishes. Luckily, each inn will restock its wares every five minutes. Consequently, you are going to want to visit inns regularly to keep yourself stocked on spell energy.

5. Variety is King

You earn experience every time you track down a foundable or ward off a confoundable. However, you can earn even more XP if you mix things up.

You will earn extra experience every time you discover a new foundable or confoundable or whenever you use new spells on new discoveries. So, make sure to always take advantage of new things in Harry Potter: Wizards Unite.

6. Do Your Daily Assignments

If you want to stay ahead of the pack, you are going to want to do your daily assignments. You can find your daily assignments under their own tab from the menu screen. These quest-like tasks will reward you with gold, items and experience.

7. You Can Get More Experience With Friends

Leveling up is the name of the game here. If you want to level up faster, then are going to want to play this game with friends. You earn additional wizarding and challenge experience when completing tasks with a group.

8. Choose Your Profession Wisely

Choosing a profession in Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is the equivalent of choosing a class in an RPG game. Each profession offers a unique set of skills, providing both advantages and disadvantages in different situations. The Magizoologist, for instance, is somewhat of a tank and a healer. The Auror, on the other hand, is a damage dealer. The Professor is exceptional when faced with puzzles. Choose your profession wisely.
