Welcome, fellow wizard, to our Wizards Unite Portkey Portmanteau Guide!
This guide will teach you all about Portkeys and Portmanteaus; including where to find them, how to open them and the best time to open them.
If you’re brand new to the game, we would recommend checking out our beginners guide to get yourself familiar with the games features before diving into our more detailed articles.
Portkeys and Portmanteaus
Portmanteaus are special items within Wizards Unite that require you to walk a certain distance to unlock them; similar to how the egg system works in Pokemon Go.
Once you have unlocked the Portmanteau, an AR (augmented reality) encounter can be activated via a Portkey.
Portmanteaus come in three different ranges; 2km, 5km and 10km. The longer the distance you have to walk, the better the rewards will be when you open it.
During special events, such as the Fantastic Flora and Fauna event, 7km Portmanteaus are also available.
How to Find Portkey Portmanteaus
Portmanteaus can be found by looking at your Wizards Unite map as you walk around. They will randomly spawn, and you have to tap them on your screen to collect them and add them to your Portkeys section.
Currently, you are unable to tell what kind of Portmanteau is spawning by looking at the map, as they all look the same. Treat it as a surprise!
Once you click on the Portmanteau, it will reveal which distance you have collected. A Prized Portkey Portmanteau is 2km, a Precious Portkey Portmanteau is 5km and a Paramount Portkey Portmanteau is 10km.
You can only carry 8 Portkey Portmanteaus at any one time; if you have 8 in your inventory, new ones will not spawn on your map.
How to Unlock a Portkey Portmanteau
Portkey Portmanteaus are stored within your suitcase in the Portkeys section. Here you will find the Portkey Portmanteaus you currently own and the distance they have been walked so far.
To start unlocking a Portkey Portmanteau, you need to use either your Golden Key or a Silver Key.
Your Golden Key can be used an infinite amount of times. Silver Keys can only be used once. If you do not have any silver keys, you can purchase one for 90 gold.
Silver Keys can also be obtained by returning foundables (random reward) and by levelling up.
How to Activate a Portkey Portmanteau
Once you have walked the required distance, a popup will appear in game informing you that your Portkey Portmanteau is unlocked and ready to use.
The game will only count distance towards your Portkey Portmanteau when the game is open. Head over to your Portkeys section and select one that has unlocked and is ready to activate.
It is important to make sure that you are in a large, safe space before travelling with a Portkey. You are required to walk forwards and look around with your phone, so make sure you are safe!
Entering a Portkey Portmanteau
When you are ready to do so and it is safe to do so, tap Use Now to travel. You will be required to search the ground for traces of magic using AR mode.
Search around with your phone and, when prompted, place the portkey in a safe spot on the ground. You can then walk forward and enter a special location from the Wizarding World!
Completing a Portkey Portmanteau
Once you enter your special location, you will need to find 5 Wrackspurts to complete the task. You’ll spot golden balls of light glowing around the room; these are what you’re looking for!
Each one will contain a different reward, such as XP or potion ingredients. Finding the same Wrackspurt more than once will activate a bonus.
Portkeys can only be entered once, so make sure you don’t leave accidentally before completing it! Once the Portkey has been entered and the task completed, you will get a roundup screen of everything you earned.
Tips and Tricks
We would recommend the following tips and tricks when using Portkey Portmanteaus.
- Try and use Silver Keys for 5km and 10km distances only. You will get the most value out of your keys by only using the Golden Key for 2km distances.
- Always make sure you have the Golden Key in use; not using it wastes time and a space!
- Portkey Portmanteaus will not spawn while your 8 allocated slots are full.
- Portkey Portmanteaus can not be deleted.
- Try and save up as many completed Portmanteaus as you can, and activate a Baruffio’s Brain Elixir potion before opening them. Whatever XP you receive will be doubled!
