Two question about dispel:
1 Cast sequence: There are 5 global enchantment now. I cast dispel and a new global at the same turn. Will I dispel one old global first and then get my new one in? Or does it happen in a random order?

2 The caster is already above S3. Will a magic booster(like Starshine Skullcap) help to increase the success rate of dispel?

Re: Dispel
Someone can confirm or correct me on this, but I understand that ritual casting sequence is randomized, specifically either from lowest to highest unit ID or highest to lowest unit ID randomly.

If you want to overwrite a global, it's far more efficent to just cast the global with extra gems and hope it has enough gem power to overwrite the randomly choosen existing global. (The global effectively dispels for you if you overpower an existing global, saving a lot of gems, even without the casting order problem)

Also assuming you can potentially cast wish, each pearl is worth 2 of any gem. Even if you can't cast wish, in a MP games wish capable players will jump on offers of say 1 pearl : 1.5 any gem trades for example (strategic consideration aside). so dispel is highly inefficient since it uses pearl, you're better off pumping extra gems into your global to increase its chance to overwrite.

Re: Dispel
OTOH, using Dispel lets you choose which global to replace. Maybe you already have one or two globals up and don't want to risk losing them. Or you suspect one global to be up with minimal extra gems.

Re: Dispel
iirc dispel is not boosted by booster items. only natural (or empowered) paths.

But you also do not get a malus, if you boost your s1 mage to s3 using items.
