Spell Casting is the ability to cast spells. It is one of the two basic powers that all magical witches have, the other one is potion making. Spells allow you to change the natural world or change how things work and other various effects.
Some spells require more than one witch to make them work in order to increase the amount of magic and therefore potential power available for the spell. Also, some spells are so powerful and advanced that some witches cannot cast them or more witches are needed.
This is one of the most obvious characteristics of witches is their ability to cast spells. A spell could consist of a set of words, a verse, rhymes, a ritual action, or any combination of these. Majority of the spells are spoken in Latin. Some can be nonverbal as well.
Spells may not always work all the time or how it is supposed to work. They may backfire or work weakly. Plus, a lot of emotion may be needed for it to work. Extra components/material may be needed or can be added to help strengthen the spell's effect and power. However, it's not always needed seeing as how sometimes, in the books, witches make up spells on the spot.
Some people keep their spells in a spell book, also called Grimoire or totem.
