Completing SOS tasks in Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is a great way to earn XP, items, and other rewards, but some of the tasks are a little more difficult than others. One such task is to defeat 10 formidable Pixies in Wizarding Challenges.
These Pixies can be hard to find, making it not easy to take down 10 of them; However, there are some tips we have to find them so you can complete this task!
Formidable Pixies tend to spawn in Tower chambers
When you go to a fortress, you must choose a chamber to enter, and the higher level chambers will contain harder enemies. The Tower chambers appear to be more likely to spawn formidable Pixies as enemies.
The good news is that you can find them in Tower Chamber I and Tower Chamber II, so you don't have to climb the ladder too far, and they seem easy to find with Level 1
The professors tend to meet them more
Formidable Pixies are curious, which means that not only are professorships more likely to fight them, but they are also better at fighting them since they receive an innate bonus to enemies of the Curiosities type.
If you are already a professor, this is good news for you; However, if you have chosen Auror or Magizoologist, you can join a professor who will help you find them in the Wizarding Challenges.
You can always switch professions to a professor, but Tower Chambers is not a pushover and changing professions means you cannot use the skills you have gained from other professions. This can make the fighting much more difficult if you do not already have professorship skills.
Run away to spawn new enemies
If you really try to find as many formidable Pixies as fast as you can, running away from challenges spawns new enemies.
So if you get into a chamber and fail at the draw and don't have the chance to fight a formidable Pixie, you can choose to fight against enemies and then escape from fighting, causing new enemies to emerge.
Not only will this prevent you from wasting resources on matches you do not need to do, but it will also ensure that you have the best chance of finding one. Just remember that all Wizarding Challenges are a race against the clock, and if you do not want to completely fail a Wizarding Challenge and throw away Runestones, you must defeat the required amount of enemies in the allotted time to earn some rewards!  Try to Play at Night
This has not been confirmed, but many players (myself included) have appeared to see more Pixies in the Wizarding Challenge when it was night time in the game.
There is some evidence to support this claim, you can find Pixies out on the map as Oddities, and Oddities are more likely to spawn at night. You can also try using Oddities Runestones, but there is no confirmation that this makes any difference.
