How to level up fast & get more XP in Harry Potter Wizards Unite

Niantic has once again taken a big franchise and made a successful game out of it. Pokemon Go, which was released by Niantic in 2016, has made billions of dollars for the company and it still ranks in the top 10 charts when it comes to the best mobile games.

A new game from Niantic, Harry Potter Wizards Unite has already taken the world by storm. The game is already soaring up to a million downloads in just four days of its release.

The game is somewhat similar to Pokemon Go, but it has a magical flavour which you will surely like. Players who have played Pokemon Go can compare both of them for several reasons. But the players who have not played Pokemon Go would love to cast spells on elements or characters who are creating havoc for the Ministry of Magic & Wizarding world.

The Harry Potter Wizards Unite game has a total of 60 levels for the players to complete. But it is not easy to level up easily in the game when your spell energy finishes quickly. In this article, we will discuss how you level up fast in Harry Potter Wizards Unite and how to gain more XP.

The more XP you gain, the faster you will level up. Let us have a look at how to do that.

Gain Fast XP during Traces Encounters

One of the most common ways to gain XP is through Trace encounters, and it further depends on the threat level, accuracy and occasion, which determines how much XP will be rewarded.

If you encounter a greater threat level trace and cast a spell with the precision, you will earn more XP. It also depends on the occasion, if you return the foundable back to its place in your first spell it will reward you with more XP.


Have a look at the section below, which shares the XP gain on variables like Trace Encounters, Accuracy, Oddities and Occasions.

Traces Threat Level

Low – 50 XP
Medium – 75 XP
High – 150 XP
Severe – 250 XP
Emergency – 500 XP


Fair – 0 XP
Good – 20 XP
Great – 50 XP
Masterful – 100 XP

How to level up fast and gain more XP by using Baruffio’s Brain Elixir?

Baruffio’s Brain Elixir is a potion in Harry Potter Wizards Unite if activated gives double Wizarding XP while doing Traces, Portkeys and Wizarding Challenges for 30 minutes.

But there is a trick you can follow with Baruffio’s Brain Elixir which helps to rank up quickly. The trick here is that the more tasks you will have in your hand, the more XP you can gain.

Also, make sure your spell energy is full as you are required to do a lot spellcasting in Fortress. To increase your spell energy, you can visit the nearest Inn.

Before using Baruffio’s Brain Elixir potion make sure to have three to four Portmanteau ready to open. A portmanteau is similar to eggs in Pokemon Go; it hatches when you walk around with a key inside it.

The best part is you can stack them up and open them one by one. Now it is time to use the Baruffio’s Brain Elixir. After that, start opening your Portkeys and complete the required task (Tap 5 Wrackspurts) as quickly as possible. It will earn you a good amount of XP.

You will be required to register the images in the Registry, but we can skip it and complete it later on when Brain Elixir potion wears out, as you only have 30 minutes with this potion to get the double Wizarding XP.

Now head onto fortress, it is similar to Gym in Pokemon Go. You will need a Runestone to enter the Fortress. It contains several chambers, and to enter into a chamber, you need to spend a runestone. The amount of XP you get will depend on the Level of the fortress. But it does not depend on the number of players you are teaming up with, only fortress level matters.

If you have any time left on the clock, you can use a dark detector; it functions similar to lures or incense in Pokemon Go. The Dark Detector attracts high-level traces.

Complete the Daily and Monthly Assignments

Completing the daily and monthly tasks also rewards you with a decent amount of XP, which helps to level up. So make sure to check daily and monthly tasks in the bottom right tab on your main screen.

Also, do check if you have completed any SOS assignment, it can also reward you with some good amount of XP.

Brain Elixir potion does not work with these assignments.

Prestige Your Registry

Once your registry page is complete, you can prestige it. ‘Prestiging’ your registry means you can reset the figures or stickers to zero and can start returning the ‘foundables’ again.

The reason that you should prestige is that it will reward you with a ton of XP. Also, you will be collecting more of them in future.

Mysteries XP Rewards

If you complete any Mysteries tab quest, you will be rewarded with 500 XP
