What are the nonverbal spells used in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald?

For example, when the Auror protects himself ? Or the spell he used to enter within the wall and to appear near Nagini?

  • I have a feeling a lot of these will be unknowns. For example, for the two you cite the screenplay only says: "In a flash, GRIMMSON conjures a domed Shield Charm around himself and IRMA’S body." and doesn't say anything about him entering the wall.

  • Well, it's too bad, it would have growth the knowledge we already have in spells, but thank you @TheLethalCarrot ! Dec 6, 2018 at 14:59
  • I imagine some are shown and some can be worked out mind you but I only glanced at your examples
