I'm trying to figure out if it's just random or what? I had a dungeon where it happened frequently - then nothing for days. Now I've had a few again. What's up with this?

"Haywire" is the magic equivalent of a critical hit. In this case...a critical spellcasting. As such, it has the same odds of going haywire as you would have to get a critical hit with a weapon.

Mage Critical Spell Rate Up increases the chance a spell that goes haywire. Though the Grotto boss Fowleye spells always go haywire. ALWAYS.

I have wondered if haywire spells can be "countered". When I fight Fouleye, my priest always seems to haywire her healing spells, unlike most other fights.
Hard cheese, go back to the start..... If I had a nickel for every time I saw this, I could retire.
