Default Wizard's Charm

I can't believe that it took me this long to realize this, but I think we may have been using the Wizard's Charm ability incorrectly...

What we've been doing is that we take the treasure from a monster ONLY if the monster is ALONE and we charm it, but if it is paired with another monster, we ignore the charmed monster's treasure even if the battle is won afterwards.

Is this correct? Or should it be: if the monster is charmed and then the battle with a 2nd monster is won, take the treasures from both monsters? Or (as the card seems to suggest), it just plain says that when the monster is charmed, "take its treasure," seemingly immediately in the middle of the fight. Which is it?

So far, no mechanism allows treasure collection during combat.
All levels earned and treasure collected go to the owner of the combat once it is concluded. Treasure is drawn face up if there was a helper, and is then distributed as per the arrangement agreed upon when help was requested.

You should be drawing the Treasure for the charmed Monster, but only after the remaining Monster(s) are defeated, or if there were no other Monsters.

Also note that even if the helper Charm's the monster, the Treasures are drawn by the combat owner and distributed as per the deal for helping.
