Challenges are key in games like Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. Without them, it can be difficult to stick to the game. We need goals to reach, and challenges to face in order to prove that we have a high level of skill.
In the Harry Potter mobile game, fortresses will be the areas in which we test our metal as players. To complete them, you’ll need to take on tougher challenges than you might discover outside. On top of that, you’ll likely need a few friends in order to get through the fortress successfully.
Let’s take a closer look into these unique locations.
What Are Fortresses?
While looking for lost magical objects and squaring off with other witches or wizards can be fun, some users are going to want a more intense experience. Much like the gyms we find in Pokemon Go, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite fortresses are a chance for you and your friends to test your skills.
Within these fortresses, you’ll likely find a variety of AI enemies. Because Niantic recommends taking on fortresses with friends, there’s a good chance that not every magical profession will be able to handle every challenge inside easily.
Enemies That May Be Found Within Fortresses
Niantic mentions that we’re sure to find a variety of different enemies in the fortresses. Death Eaters and dangerous creatures like werewolves can present challenges that are greater than what we’ll run into outside. However, alongside those more difficult enemies comes greater rewards!
As we move closer to the release of the game, we’re likely to see many different kinds of creatures that may show up in these dungeons. One can speculate that there may even be things like dementors, dragons, vampires and many other enemies within.
Beneficial Allies In Fortresses
It’s worth keeping in mind that fortresses aren’t going to be as easy to get into as the Pokemon Go gyms. You will need special items known as runestones, which will be gathered as you seek out other foundables. It’s a good idea to take this as a sign that some strategizing will be needed when you enter a fortress.
Each of the different magical professions that you can choose from, professor, auror or magizoologist, will have different strengths, weaknesses and abilities. Because of this, you’ll likely need all three in order to get through a whole fortress.
Teamwork is going to be a key aspect of these areas, so learning how to combine your strengths and weaknesses will ensure that your group can reap all of the rewards.
Potential For Real Life Dungeon-Crawling?
For those who are familiar with exploring dungeons in popular games like World of Warcraft, Guild Wars and many others, you may find the experience of a fortress to be somewhat similar. The basic concept is to make sure you have plenty of allies (up to 5), and are stocked up on health items.
From that point, you’ll begin exploring the different floors that make up a fortress. Keep in mind that much like the floors of a dungeon, each is likely to become more difficult. On top of that, there may be a time limit involved, so efficient teamwork will be key to reaching rare foundables.
