  • Stupefy: Another must-have given its quick buildup and high overall damage, especially when paired with the right Echo.
  • Confringo: One of the best offensive spells in the game given its ability to deal multiple ounces of damage to all enemies in a large AoE. Shines the brightest when paired with the Echo of Hermione.
