Magic Spells are a magical action used by witches to perform magic. It is generally performed using a magic wand. Unless specifically mentioned by a character in some form of media, these names and the spells' classifications are unofficial.
Spells are the primary mean by which witches carry out their magic. To be used, a spell requires basically two things: incantation and magical energy. If a witch pronounces the spell incorrectly, the wand does not channel magical energy and if they lack the necessary power to use it, the spell will fail.
While the simplest spells can be performed almost effortlessly, the more advanced spells require a higher level of skill and experience. The higher the user's level, the spells can be used at a higher level as well, as seen with Transformation spells, which can transform a target into a higher or lower stage.
After a witch has casted a spell a lot of times and has enough experience, spells can be used without verbal incantation.
