Wizards Unite 2.5.0 Leak: Halloween Event, Gift feature, Dark Witch, and more!

According to recent findings by Zviznemte, it would appear that version 2.5.0 (although preventing players from accessing the game at the time of writing this article) has a LOT of features hidden under the hood. Again, like any leaks, we recommend reading with extreme caution as what was found/leaked could potentially never be released, modified before release, or released as is.

What follows may contain spoiler. Read at your own risk.

Gift feature

If you are familiar with Pokémon GO, what was found by Zviznemte suggests that the feature in HPWU will resemble it greatly.

Gifts are packages of useful items that you can send to your Friends via Owl Post. They may contain rare Potion Ingredients, Spell Energy, Runestones, and even Foundables!\n\nFind gifts by dining at Inns, harvesting Greenhouses, and completing Wizarding Challenges. You can send a limited number of gifts each day, and a Friend must open your gift before you can send them another one.

Players have a chance to obtain gifts from completing the following actions:

  • Dining at Inns
  • Harvesting at Greenhouses
  • Completing Wizarding Challenges

According to Zvinemte’s finding, there would currently be three types of gifts.

  • Energetic Giftbox: rewarding Spell Energy
  • Herbal Giftbox: rewarding Ingredients
  • Ancients Giftbox: rewarding Runestones

New Tasks

Again, according to Zviznemte’s findings, there would reportedly be a new wave of tasks coming to Wizards Unite, but nothing indicates whether these will come with version 2.5.0.

Dark Witch

Finally, Zviznemte also reportedly was able to recreate two different variants of the Dark Witch as follows.

There was reportedly no indication of how or when these would be available, but it should be safe to assume that they will be introduced during #DarkArtsMonth. According to Zviznemte, these would be available through Wizarding Challenges, but there would apparently be no indication as to what each of them refer to. One could speculate that the right one is the Common one, while the left one is the Imposing one, but there would be no ground to confirm any of it until announced by HPWU or released.

Parting Words

As stated earlier, like any leaks, we recommend reading with extreme caution as what was found/leaked could potentially never be released, modified before release, or released as is.
