Hi everyone! With the introduction of Potion Persistence in update 2.6, we thought it would be handy to provide you all with a quick overview of all the Potions you can use in Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. Read, learn, and discuss below! 😁
Exstimulo Potions improve spell casts in both combat and Traces. These potions come in three different strengths, with higher-level versions offering greater threat reduction and spell improvement. Use these against difficult Confoundables and Foes, choosing a suitable strength based on their threat level. Exstimulo Potions now will persist across multiple Encounters and Wizarding Challenges!
Exstimulo Potion - Improves 3 spell casts
Strong Exstimulo Potion - Improves 4 spell casts
Potent Exstimulo Potion - Improves 5 spell casts
Invigoration Draughts grant Focus, a resource used to cast strategic spells in Wizarding Challenges. Invigoration Draughts are particularly helpful for witches and wizards with Professions that use high-cost Focus spells. Magizoologists, for example, can use Strong Invigoration Draughts to restore their Focus and revive their teammates. In a support capacity, Aurors can transfer Focus gained from Invigoration Draughts to teammates using their Focus Charm.
Invigoration Draught - Grants 1 Focus
Strong Invigoration Draught - Grants 3 Focus
Healing Potions restore Stamina you’ve lost during combat. These potions are essential if you’re in a tough battle and nearly defeated. With enough Healing Potions in your inventory, you can keep healing yourself and stay in the battle indefinitely, allowing you to solo difficult Wizarding Challenges.

Wit-Sharpening Potions increase the efficacy of spell casts against Elite Foes in Wizarding Challenges by 50%. Elite Foes can be identified by their names (i.e. Elite Irkling, Elite Werewolf, etc.) and the gold border surrounding their portrait. Wit-Sharpening Potions will also now persist across multiple Encounters and Wizarding Challenges!

Dawdle Draughts reduce the Confoundable’s likelihood of fleeing with a Foundable. Consider using Dawdle Draughts in combination with Exstimulo potions if you Encounter rare Foundables that you really don’t want to depart.

Barruffio’s Brain Elixirs grant extra Wizard XP every time you complete a Trace, Wizarding Challenge, or Portkey. Use a Barruffio’s Brain Elixir when you plan to play for at least 30 minutes, opening Portkeys, or during Brilliant Events. If you’re in a Wizarding Challenge with your friends, you can double the XP you would get from the Challenge and the friend bonus.

Tonics for Trace Detection increase the number of Traces that appear in your vicinity. If you’re camping or vacationing in the countryside without many Traces nearby, use a Tonic for Trace Detection to attract Traces to your location. Tonic for Trace Detection will also boost the appearance of Traces from a given Registry Family near their Landmark.

Thank you all for attending this Potions lesson. Stay tuned for more Wizarding guides! Now, pop quiz: what would I get if I added powdered root of asphodel to an infusion of wormwood? 😋
