    [edit] Spells


      This spell is the first one that you learn. It�s a battle spell and it�s used to deal damage. Can also be used to push objects and break chests.
      Effective Against: Gnomes, Imps, Fire Crabs, Horklumps and Bowtruckles.


      This spell is the second one that you learn. It allows you to open doors locked by magic. You won�t be able to open every door with it but this is one of the most used spells.


      This is a damaging spell.
      Effective against: Venomous Tentacula


      Allows you to create a �bridge over an abyss�. Very helpful to go over large empty spaces but it works on special places only which means you won�t be able to use it everywhere you wish.
      Effective Against: Ghosts and Gytrahses


      Used to open secret passages behind curtains, for example.


      Use on spongify turtles. By doing it you increase the height Harry can reach when jumping on those turtles.
