What are the effects of the different potions in Harry Potter Wizards Unite?
In Harry Potter Wizards Unite, potions are consumables that can be purchased or brewed. Once consumed, they offer the player precious temporary bonuses.

THEBaruffio's Brain Elixir will allow you to double the experience points acquired by bringing in a Foundable, by taking up a Sorcerer Challenge or by unlocking a Portkey. Its effect lasts thirty minutes. Ideally, try to be under the influence of an Elixir at all times (except if you plan to play for less than thirty minutes). This will allow you to reach level 60 twice as quickly ...
La Healing Potion, meanwhile, allows you to restore your health points during a fight or between two fights in the Sorcerer Challenges. They will be very useful for you to survive against the most formidable enemies, especially if you do not have healing spells to restore your stamina.
Then let's talk about Exstimulo potions, which will allow you to increase the power of your spells. These will not only allow you to increase your damage against opponents in Wizarding Challenges, but also to more easily release Foundables in the Tracks. They will be particularly useful for defeating the most powerful Seals and saving the rarest Foundables.

Le apathy potion is also very important in saving the rarest Foundables. This potion will simply allow you to prevent a Seal from stealing a Foundable for three turns. So make sure you always have at least one with you, to prevent an extremely rare Foundable from disappearing before your eyes after hours of research ...
Le invigorating filter and the Reinvigorated Potion, meanwhile, will allow you to gain focus points in Wizarding Challenges. These focus points will simply allow you to use the charms (strategic spells) related to your profession.
Still in the Wizards' Challenges, the Sharpening Potion will allow you to increase the power of your spells up to 50% against elite enemies. She will be of great help to you in the highest rooms of the fortress ...

Choose the potion you want to use, and press the “use” button. The number of turns the potion is active will be shown on the left of the screen.

To use them, simply tap the potion icon at the bottom of the Wizard's Challenge arena screen and choose the one you want to use.
How do I collect ingredients and brew potions?
As you level up and complete your daily missions, you can earn some potions as you progress. It is also possible to buy potion packs in the shop.
However, main way to get potions is to brew them yourself. To do this, you will need ingredients to pick up from the ground as you walk.
Each potion requires different ingredients, and these are listed in the “Recipes” tab of the potions menu. Most potions require three common ingredients, and one more rare ingredient.
