What is spell energy used for?

Harry Potter Wizards Unite

Spell energy is one of the most important resources you'll use as a wizard, and it's not exactly easy to stock up on it either since there's a cap on the amount you can carry.

Essentially, you need spell energy to cast spells. Obvious, right? Every time you confront a Confoundable, you'll need to use spell energy to trace out those runes and cast that magic.

As a result, you want those casts to be as meaningful as possible. You don't just get rewarded for tracing accurately, but speed if also a big factor. The game rewards speedy spellcasting, so if you're comfortable with the pattern, do it fast.

Potions are also important, and can prevent Confoundables from escaping, or make them more likely to submit to your spells, allowing you to save energy. Ultimately, energy conservation can be just as important as collecting energy, especially if you find it awkward to get to Inns or Greenhouses, depending on where you live or your mobility.

Spell energy is like Pokémon GO's Pokéballs, but at this time, there's no way to really get spell energy away from marked locations without paying real money, unlike Pokémon GO's gifts. Hopefully we'll see a similar mechanic implemented in time.

But that's not the only use for spell energy…
