The Spell Listings contain the spells of all levels for either the wizard or priest, as well as the school or sphere for each spell. It provides an easy way to discover which spells are available for the specialists or druids. Also available are separate pages, divided by level, describing the spells in detail.

The Tales of the Sword Coast only spells are noted with the following graphic:
Priests rely on their faith and the miraculous powers granted to them by their diety. Priests have to pray for specific spells in much the same manner that wizards memorize their own enchantments, but priests do not have to collect them and store them in a spellbook.
Wizards must commit specific spells to memory before they can be used. Furthermore, they must first find these spells on scrolls before they can be transcribed to their spellbook.
