When creating your character in Harry Potter Wizards Unite you have to choose one of three offered professions. You have one of three available professions to choose: Aurora, Magizoologist or Professor. Each profession has different set of spells and copes differently on the battlefield. On this page of our guide you will find a description of each profession, find out whether you can change them during the game or join in groups with other professions.
This group is represented by Harry Potter. His skill tree is based on the Defense against the black magic. Specialty of Auror is casting spells and defeating foes.
Under the mentorship of none other than Harry Potter, Aurors are the folks who specialize in magical combat against the Dark Arts. Their abilities tend to focus on combat strength and dealing direct damage to enemies, so think of them as the frontline fighters of the Wizarding World. Aurors have the lowest Stamina, or health, of the three classes, but the highest Power. They also get more critical hits, and do more damage with them, than other wizards. Aurors do extra damage to Dark Forces enemies but take extra damage from Beast enemies.
This class is great for supporting Aurors. Their specialty consists in catching magical beasts.
Rubeus Hagrid serves as mentor to Magizoologists, whose abilities are more aligned with caring for creatures–and other humans. This is your defensive healer class of wizards, wielding spells that are more about helping out the team than damaging enemies directly. They also have the highest Stamina of the three classes. Magizoologists are strong against Beast enemies and weak against Curiosities.
The Professor class looks the most balanced of the three, having both support and attack spells.This class is represented by Professor McGonagall. Characters belonging to this group will do a great job with potions and search for magical creatures.
With Minerva McGonagle heading their order, Professors are a more versatile class of wizard. Their spells focus generally on buffing their teammates and debuffing their enemies, making them the status manipulators of a squad. This is your middle-of-the-road class, balanced between the power of Aurors and the defensiveness of Magizoologists, but with a lot of good traits of both. Professors do extra damage to Curiosities and take additional damage from Dark Forces enemies.
Upgrading Your Skills In The Skill Tree
You’ll need to keep an eye on a new set of items you’ll find as you venture through Wizards Unite, once you’ve unlocked Professions: Scrolls and Spellbooks. You’ll spend these in the skill trees of your professions to unlock new spells and passive perks that make you more effective in combat, like gaining additional stamina or dealing more damage.
Scrolls come from the chests unlocked when you complete Traces and catalog Foundables in your Registry, so they’re fairly easy to come by. Especially in the early part of the skill trees, you’ll mostly be spending Scrolls to advance and unlock different abilities and perks. Tougher to get are Spell Books, which are found in the chests when you complete Wizarding Challenges in Fortresses. If you want to advance your wizard abilities, you’re going to need to engage in multiplayer battles with other players.
When you reach the Profession screen, you’ll see a page that gauges a series of stats you’ll increase for your wizard as you unlock perks in the skill tree. Their meanings aren’t immediately clear, so here’s what each one does:
- Stamina: Your health in battles.
- Power: The strength of the spells you use against enemies.
- Protego Power: The strength of your protection spell, used to defend against incoming attacks from enemies.
- Precision: The likelihood of landing a Critical Hit, which does increased damage.
- Critical Power: The boost in damage you get when you land a Critical Hit.
- Proficiency Power: The bonus strength of your spells against enemies your class is especially strong against.
- Deficiency Defense: Added protection against enemies that do bonus damage to your class.
- Accuracy: How likely your spells are to hit their targets.
Obviously, increasing all these stats is important, but some stats are higher for certain classes than others. Aurors are geared toward Power and Precision, Magizoologists toward Stamina and Defense, and Professors toward Accuracy and Proficiency.
Important Stats: Proficiency Power, Deficiency Defense
There are lots of stats you can amp up in your skill tree as you progress through it, including the power of your offensive spells and the effectiveness of Protego, your magical defense. But when it comes to specializing in your particular Profession, you’re going to want to keep an eye on two stats: Proficiency Power and Deficiency Defense.
Proficiency Power denotes how much of a boost you get against enemies that are weak to your chosen Profession. If you’re an Auror, you’ll get a bonus against Dark Forces enemies such as Death Eaters, but Proficiency Power dictates how big a bonus you receive. Especially when you’re able to play with other specialized wizards on a team, boosting this stat will make you highly effective in your particular role.
Deficiency Defense is the other side of the coin. The higher the stat, the less of a hit you take against the enemies to whom you are weak–in the case of Aurors, that would be Beast enemies such as spiders. Regardless of your strategy, investing in Deficiency Defense will help you survive in battle no matter what kind of enemy you’re facing.
Can you change your profession?
Yes. The profession can be changed at any time of the game. Remember that they are related to skill trees. You can’t move your skills to another tree and create it again.
Is it worth forming teams and parties?
If you want to make challenges in Fortresses you need to assemble a good team. In Fortresses you will duel with magical beings who want to deprive you from your desire to live. Form a fellowship with co-players to defeat opponents much faster. The team must have 3 members, one from each profession. Moreover, you can have more casters in the party. Such formation will help you in defeating various beasts.
