When learning how to return a Confoundable in Harry Potter Wizards Unite, you’ll need to be able to recognize them on your map. Confoundables can take many different forms, with their forms representing different entries in your Registry. For example, you can encounter Confoundables represented by symbols for Platform 9 ¾, Legends of Hogwarts, Care of Magical Creatures, and so on.

By tapping on a nearby Confoundable, you’ll begin your attempt to return it. At the top of your encounter screen, you’ll see a Threat Level which represents the level of difficulty. The higher the difficulty, the harder it’ll be to return the Confoundable. You’ll also notice a shape on the center of your screen. This shape represents what you need to trace in order to cast your spell.

The faster you cast your spell, and the more accurate your trace, the more effective your spell will be. Note that casting spell uses up Spell Energy. If you have no Spell Energy, you’ll need to first replenish it before you can cast your next spell. For more on how to replenish your Spell Energy, be sure to check out our previous guide.

If you’re having a particularly hard time returning a Confoundable, you can also use Potions to boost the efficacy of your spells. Although, we recommend saving your Potions for more complex challenges, such as Oddities. After you successfully return a Confoundable, you’ll be rewarded with XP and the opportunity to add it to your Registry. If you’ve already returned that type of Confoundable before, the Registry animation will skip (as the Confoundable has already been registered).
