Wands and such that show multiple cards but the description says, "Gives 1 card", vs one card shown and it says "Gives 5/7/etc cards".

I'm sure for the second, it means it gives up to that many cards of that type during a single battle (please correct me if I'm wrong).

For the first though, does it mean that it gives one cards of each shown or that it randomly gives one of the shown cards?

What that means is that it gives one of every type of wand spell it gives.

It gives one card of each item shown.

If it says give one card and it shows multiple cards, it means it gives 1 copy of each of those cards. It means you will get an item card version of those cards per battle.

example: it says Give 1 card: (ice spell) (fire spell)

it means it gives one copy of that one fire spell and one copy of that ice spell per battle.

if it says give multiple cards, it says it gives multiple copies of the card(s) listed below during a battle.

Okay here's an example:
gives 2 cards
(Card)
Gives 7 cards
(card)
The card below the number of cards given is that card that is given. The caption of which gets how many cards is above the card. Hard to explain Just check your deck and see what cards are in there if you have to.

If you get a wand, it says Gives __ Cards.... That means that number is the amount of cards you get the cards shown.

Would also like to know how to see which schools I am a part of. My primary is Balance, how do I know which other schools I am a part of?

Thanks for the replies everyone. (For anyone who isn't a member here and wondering why there are so many people giving the same information, posts are queued. )

This game certainly has a lot of finer points to it to learn.

The schools you spent your training points to buy spells from.
Although you wont be able to get any quest related spells exclusive to those schools

Drat. Was hoping that there was a way to pick a secondary school sort of like the primary, and then have some benefits from it, such as free training.

Thanks for the answer, I was a bit confused by the mention of secondary schools.

Now another thing I'm wondering. I saw a video recently where someone was running around on someone's estate and it was the "Tower of Winter Winds" house. In that video, there were these glowing stars and when you pass through one, it would tell you that a disguise was acquired and to press the space bar to activate it. Any idea what those stars are called?

They were playing one of the housing games. Those stars are boosts you get in that game. Say if it was tag, which I suspect it was, by passing through that star you are given the gift of a disguise that lasts only for a certain amount of time. When you are ready to use it, like when the "it" person is near, you hit your space bar to disguise yourself so you won't get caught. Hope that helps.
