Submit Feedback or Error

Introduction

Yet another update to Wizards Unite, 2.7.0, has begun rolling out to all users. This update includes new content (events and a new registry page), new features (gifting!), and other smaller changes.

As of posting, the update is not yet available to all users. We will continue to update this article as the update rolls out with further details on any changes.

Warning!

Android users, there is a known issue with some users being unable to login with Google or Facebook. For now, we advise that you do not update until the issue is solved. We will update with further details as they are available.

New Events

This update comes with the announcement of a new Brilliant Event: Christmas Calamity. Along with the Brilliant event, December will also feature the monthly Community Day and a "special in-game event." Details for all three events have not been released yet.

A bug allowed some users to see a countdown in Special Assignments to Saturday, December 21st, which might be the date of Community Day. However, this is currently unconfirmed and may have just been a placeholder date.

New Registry Page

With this update, there is yet another new Registry page, once again in Legends of Hogwarts. It has not yet shown up in the game, but the files are there. Here's a preview of the five new Foundables and the page background:

Legends of Hogwarts Page 5 Preview

As of right now, we do not know when these Foundables might become available, but as the page features Foundables from the Yule Ball in Goblet of Fire, it is probably coming some time in December.

New Gifting Feature

We reported on the upcoming Gifts feature earlier today, and now we have the update needed for the feature to go live. Once the feature is live, players will be able to send and receive Gifts containing Spell Energy from Inns, Runestones from Wizarding Challenges, or Ingredients from Greenhouses.

The Wizards Unite team have not yet said when the feature will go live, but it will at least need to wait until all players are able to download the update and the update is then "forced." (A forced update means that attempting to play without updating will bring up a screen telling you to update and not allow you to play until then.)

UPDATE: Shortly after update 2.7.0 went live, the gifting feature went live as well. Our gifting guide is now up and you can read it here.

Quality of Live Improvements

Facebook Login

Along with the upcoming Gifts feature, players will now be able to connect their Facebook accounts to Wizards Unite and add any of their Facebook friends who have done the same. Both players must connect their Facebook accounts for this to work.

Purchase Confirmations

Players will now see a popup asking them to confirm their purchase on the following purchases:

  • Rental Cauldrons

  • Out of Spell Energy

  • Out of Runestones (when at a Fortress)

  • Vault Expansion

New AR Photo

The Self-Playing Harp is now available for AR photos from the Registry in Photo Mode.

Bug Fixes

Here are all the bugs that Wizards Unite have reported as fixed. As player reports are sparse so far, most of these remain unconfirmed for now, so let us know in the Community Forums or on Discord if you've tested any of these since updating!

Potions:

  • Android Only: Fixed an issue where players did not see a Potion added to their Queue when they start brewing from the Recipes screen.

    • Status: Unconfirmed

Wizarding Challenges:

  • Fixed an issue where players were not be able to re-enter a Wizarding Challenge if they are kicked out due to a connection issue

    • Status: Unconfirmed

General:

  • Fixed an issue with Download All Assets in the Settings section not giving a notification (red badge) when there are new assets to download. This will only be available to users Level 4 and up

    • Status: Unconfirmed

Known Issues

Achievements:

  • Players may still see badges (red dots) on Achievements even if they have scrolled through the Achievements list

Registry:

  • Foundables that are not from Encounters can sometimes have a high Seen number, even if they are not Seen in Encounters

  • Foundables in Photo Mode may flip around when a player taps on the Foundable to reposition

Gifting:

  • Tapping the Send Gift button more than once before the Gift is sent to a Friend will cause the game to freeze on a black screen. Restart the game to fix this issue.

Portmanteaus:

  • Players may still see a badge (red dot) on Portmanteaus even if they are out of Keys to unlock

Portkeys:

  • Denying Camera Permissions when a Portkey is ready to use will make the Use Now button unresponsive. Make sure to allow Camera Permissions before attempting to open a Portkey.

Potions:

  • Players may receive an error when they attempt to collect a brewed Potion

General:

  • Players will receive a Network Error if they go to change their Code Name but cancel on the second confirmation popup

  • Players may not receive all event rewards if they do not collect the rewards before the event has ended. Make sure to collect all rewards before the end of an event to avoid this issue.
