Niantics Harry Potter: Wizards Unite offers players an augmented reality insight into the world of witchcraft and wizardry. The novel series "Wizarding World" and "Harry Potter" is full of unique and interesting characters. That's why Wizards Unite offers you the role of one of three "professions": auror, magiologist, and professor. The question is which one you choose.
Before you think about this decision, check which level you are currently in the game. These can be found in the lower left corner of the main screen. Currently, only level 6 or higher players can choose a profession for their Wizards Unite character. If you're currently rocketing to level 5 or lower, keep playing to unlock this option.
Professions determine their type advantage and disadvantage against a particular type of "enemy", especially in wizarding challenges. If you have ever played Pokémon or other types of RPGs, you are familiar with this mechanics.
There are three enemy types in the game to watch out for, including Dark Forces like Death Eater; Beasts, like Acromantuals; and curiosities like Pixies. Each profession has a unique advantage and disadvantage over each of these enemy types, but more below.
With every job you gain experience known as "Expertise". In this way, you can build your strengths and fight better in the fight. They gain expertise in the fight against enemies, but also through scrolls, spellbooks, books with restricted sections, and lessons.
Your level 6 or higher character wants to select a profession. Everyone has their own advantages and disadvantages in the game. Let's take a look at all three and see what is appropriate for your style of play:
In the Harry Potter universe, Aurors are the magical police. They are detectives, fighters and defenders against dark forces. Because of this, it makes perfect sense that the Auror profession is most effective in Wizard's Unite against Dark Forces and Dark Wizards. That is, if you encounter Dark Forces in the wild, you have an advantage over a magician or professor in your fight. However, if you face a beast, you have a disadvantage compared to the other two professions.
Magician in the fictive universe of Harry Potter, as a zoologist in the real world, loves magical creatures. That's why they have a certain advantage over beasts. Take one of your adventures and you'll find that your fight is less stressful than if you were an Auror or a professor. However, magiologists have a drawback when it comes to curiosities. If you encounter a pixie on your journey, you have to prepare for a harder fight.
Finally, there are professors who are familiar with magic and spells. While you're on the surface, you can brag about the magical edge of your character with your friends. You will see how important it is to make curiosities. However, professors are weaker in the fight against dark forces. If you're in a team, do you hope to have an auror by your side, or at least a magician who has no advantage or disadvantage to Death Eaters and other dark enemies?
Not at all. Suppose you want to be an Auror because Harry Potter is an Auror and you think you will spend more time fighting dark beasts against beasts? Great. As a result, you may spend much more time fighting beasts than dark forces, so you wish you had chosen the magiologist.
It's easy to change profession, and Niantic lets you do it anytime. On the main screen, tap your ministry icon or suitcase icon, and then tap "Profession" on either side to select a new character.
Technically, no. When you switch from an Auror to a Magician, you can not take any of your expertise with you. However, not everything is lost. Return to the Auror at a later date and you will find that all your previous Auror skills are still intact. The same applies to any expertise you have acquired as a magiologist at this time – it will not transfer, but it will always be there when you come back.
