Casting spells in Wizards Unite is your bread and butter. Learning to cast spells well will help you defeat Confoundables quicker, gain more XP from your battle, and use less energy on each battle.

The key to overpowering Confoundables and returning Foundables before they get away is to cast Masterful spells. Masterful casts also net you 100 XP on top of everything else (Good and Great also get you experience bonuses, but Fair does not.) A Masterful cast doesn't guarantee you will overpower the Confoundables; however, it definitely increases your odds.

Casting Masterful spells can be a little tricky, but the key is trying to be as fast as possible, while also tracing the spell glyph accurately.
