How to cast a spells in Harry Potter: Wizards Unite

However, there's another element in play and that's the speed you cast the spell. You've probably discovered that if you're too slow you'll fail the spell, but the benefit of going faster isn't as obviously initially. It's easy to miss if you're spending too much time looking at the spell shape as you're casting, however this bit at the top of the screen measure time as well as quality when you're waving your wand:

Those segments of the green bar correspond to Masterful, Great, Good and Fair levels of spell casting. The second you start the countdown begins and you need to finish the spell inside the top, smallest section to hit the coveted Masterful rank. 

The maths behind this isn't immediately obvious but it looks like the timer counts down as yoyu cast then, once you're finished adds the quality of your shape matching back on. So while you might finish the spell in the Good section of the bar  you can do a good enough drawing that it all adds back up to Masterful.
