Harry Potter Magic Awakened’s First Major Update: Here’s What You Need to Know

Written by

Just two weeks after its much-anticipated release, Harry Potter Magic Awakened has rolled out its first significant update, a testament to the developers’ commitment to continual improvements and game optimization. The July 11 patch notes, released earlier today, outline an impressive range of enhancements, bug fixes, and major updates to the game’s core elements: Personal Space and classes.

New Beginnings in Personal Space

For ardent collectors with sizeable furniture inventories, the update has heralded some exciting developments. Wizards with more than 60 furniture items will now be able to unlock an additional room in their Personal Space, which they can style distinctly from the primary area.

Those who have accumulated over 100 furniture pieces can expand their Personal Space further, providing increased opportunities for creativity and personalization.

Streamlining the Exam Week

With the new update, the path to Exam Week becomes considerably less strenuous. Previously, players needed to complete 30 class tasks to unlock Exam Week. This requirement has now been halved to only 15 tasks, making progression more efficient and less time-consuming. For those struggling in Muggle Studies or the History of Magic, resources are available with answers that can fast-track you to achieving a Perfect score.

The reduction also extends to certain class tasks. Elementary Charms now only require three uses of ‘Wingardium Leviosa’, down from five, while Intermediate Charms only require four, as opposed to seven. The Intermediate Defense Against the Dark Arts Pixie class now demands you catch just 20 Pixies, a marked decrease from the previous requirement of 29. This trimming down of tasks is designed to enhance the gaming experience, enabling players to pass and achieve Perfect scores with greater ease.

Additional Bug Fixes and Optimizations

Beyond these substantial changes, the July 11 patch notes detail an array of smaller bug fixes and optimization tweaks, demonstrating the developers’ attention to every facet of the game. Notably, players can now refresh up to three daily tasks and will experience improved UI across various game areas.

For a comprehensive breakdown of the changes, here are all of the improvement and bug fixes.

  • Improved the visuals for opening Knapsacks.
  • Improved the shopping list UI for Madam Malkin’s.
  • Players can now use additional copies of max-level cards for Social Club Card Trade.
  • Improved the visuals for Mystery Wheel. Players can now preview individual furniture pieces.
  • Players can now refresh 3 daily tasks per theme, changing the task objective but not the reward.

  • Improved the chat channel experience by adding a translation feature. Players can tap on the translate button to translate messages from other languages into the language that they are playing in.
  • Improved the Forbidden Forest team exploration experience by adding an SOS feature. When players fail a stage for the first time, they may choose to call for rescue. If rescued, players can continue to clear the stage, but cannot advance to the next stage. The rescuer can obtain all stage rewards except for Echoes, along with Thank-you Notes.
