The other day someone asked a question about how to take down wards and protective magic, especially in a situation where you aren’t physically at the location where said wards and protective magic are applied to. It’s an interesting question that got me recalling my early days in practicing magic, because one of the first things I started experimenting with was protective magic and how to take it apart and also how to improve it, so I thought I’d write this post from the dual perspective of how take apart protective magic, but also how to improve your wards and protective magic.
The first thing to note is that any protective working or ward will likely have a weakness. You just have to be very patient and find where that weakness is and what it is. Once you find that you can unravel it quickly. Likewise if you create a working, you should test it thoroughly and try to figure out what the weakness might be and make adjustments accordingly.
