The Spells | Harry Potter: Wizard Unite guide

Spells are some of the main elements of the game. They are represented by some blue lines, called glyphs, that will appear on the screen when a spell is cast to interact with an object. THE glyphs they can appear many times in the course of the game, such as inside taverns or in fortresses. 

To cast a spell you have to trace the glyph with your fingers. Obviously the result will be influenced by how the drawing is followed, and also by its speed.

A look at the map | Harry Potter: Wizard Unite guide

The world of Wizard Unite is characterized by three main structures: Fortresses, Taverns and Serre. The fortresses are gods 20-story dungeon where it is possible to fight, and defeat, some enemies. To access each floor you will need to use the runestones. 

Taverns are very similar to Pokemon Go's Pokèstops, because they allow you to gain energy for spells, and all have 5-minute cooldowns. 

Greenhouses, on the other hand, are places where you can grow ingredients and prepare potions. At the start of the game, you will only be able to deal with one potion at a time, but as you level up, you can purchase more stations. 

Portkey | Harry Potter: Wizard Unite guide

Keys can be obtained by purchasing them in Diagon Alley or by leveling up. Each portkey will take you to some iconic places of the wizarding world after traveling a set number of kilometers (2, 5 and 10km). 

It does not end here!
