Expelliarmus Report Abuse
It's a dangerous world out there and you need to know how to disarm your attackers. It works sort of like a muggle "stun gun." However, as Harry learned from Remus Lupin, in serious times you need to attack with more force.

Accio Report Abuse
This spell summons things to you. Just say "accio" and the thing you want summoned, and it will fly over from wherever it is. Accio beer!

Obliviate Report Abuse
Don't you wish you could just make people forget something sometimes? With this spell you can wipe out memories from someone else's mind. It's great if you've done something embarrassing at a party and don't want it remembered later.

but the wizards sometimes do use it. in HP and the Goblet of Fire Arthur Weasley used obliviate on the campsite manager when someone apparated in front of them.

You cant use spells in front of Muggles. That would be against the laws of the International Statute of Secrecy.

Alohamora Report Abuse
This spell can open just about any door, window or other locked object. It's terribly useful. However, as George and Fred Weasley say in HP Chamber of Secrets, it is good to learn the "muggle trade" of manual lock-picking ... you never know when you might need it.

Reparo Report Abuse
Sadly, this kind of boring spell is probably the most useful. You just point at something that is broken and with a swish of the wand, it's fixed. It's certainly helped Harry out with his glasses on several occasions.

Expecto Patronum Report Abuse
Meant to be used to get rid of soul-sucking dementors, Harry once accidentally used this on Draco Malfoy when he was pretending to be a dementor in order to psych Harry out during a quidditch game. But Harry sure showed him. One of my favorite scenes in the HP films is when Harry is watching himself and Sirius being attacked by dementors and then he realizes that he is the one who must conjure the spell. He stands up and shouts at the top of his lungs, "EXPECTO .... PATRONUM!" and a huge expanse of silver lights bursts out of his wand.

Imperius Curse Report Abuse
This is one of the three banned curses, but it is terribly useful if not completely immoral. The imperious curse allows you to control the actions of another. When someone is under the imperious curse they must follow the orders of another wizard. Many wizards have done You-Know-Who's bidding under the imperious curse.
