    Default Complete List of 3.x Wizard Spells

    Hello playground,

    Several years ago I attempted to make a list of all the spells Wizards could theoretically have access to. Due to my being away from D&D for a long time, I have only finished it now. It is true that there were already other lists available on the Internet, and I didn't really have to make one myself. The thing is, even if all the lists I found were comprehensive (I suppose), they were not quite nice looking. I wanted a list that would be both nice looking and comprehensive (in terms of schools, source, casting time, components and subschools). I didn't need full descriptions, just the name of the spell and its flavor text. (So hopefully it should be allowed on these boards.)

    So it took me quite some time but eventually, I made it. To make that list, I started with the latest 3.5 books and progressively went back to the earliest 3.0 books. That way, I added the latest revision of each spell and disregarded all previous ones, if any. Whenever I added a spell to the list, I made sure to specify the book it comes from. Some books have had all their spells later revised, and were not used at all as a result. This includes:

    Code:
    2003/10 Underdark (Und)
    2003/11 Draconomicon (Dr)
    2004/02 Unearthed Arcana (UA)
    2004/05 Complete Divine (CD)
    2004/11 Complete Arcane (CAr)
    2005/01 Complete Adventurer (CAd)

    While completing the list, I sometimes had to guess whether two similar spells were the same one (one being the revision of the other), despite WotC never mentioning the revision. The following spells have not been added, due to their possible revision (which were all added):

    Code:
    Returning Weapon 			-> Hurl
    Mindrape 				-> Programmed Amnesia	(edit: both added)
    Improved Blink 				-> Greater Blink
    Speed Swim 				-> Swim
    Gedlee’s Electric Loop 			-> Electric Loop
    Antimagic Aura 				-> Antimagic Ray	(edit: both added)
    Zajimarn’s Field of Icy Razors 		-> Field of Icy Razors
    Lutzaen's Frequent Jaunt 		-> Dimensional Jumper	(edit: both added)
    Lower Spell Resistance 			-> Spell Vulnerability

    Although this is my list, this is certainly debatable. If someone argues that I made the wrong call for X or Y spell, I can certainly add it.

    Some spells belong to two separate schools, and as a result have been added twice, once in each school sub-list. Here is a list of all those spells:

    Code:
    Dragon Magic/
    Burst of Glacial Wrath
    Ferocity of Sanguine Rage
    Firestride Exhalation
    Lord of the Sky
    Passage of the Shifting Sands
    Rot of Ages
    Vision of the Omniscient Eye
    Wingblast
    
    Player's Handbook II/
    Doom of Scarabs
    Kelgore's Fire Bolt
    Kelgore's Grave Mist
    Slashing Dispel

    I found ~140 spells from the 3.0e that, I believe, have never been revised for the 3.5e, so I added them all to the list. However, there were two spells that I didn't add for the reason that, even if they had never been revised indeed, their effects seemed either outdated or too good compared to other 3.5 spells. These spells were Augment Object (too good, from Stronghold Builder's Guidebook) and Energy Buffer (too old, from Tome and Blood). Again, this is certainly debatable and I can add them. (edit: both added)

    Okay. Now I would need you to:

    • point out any incorrect detail you find.
    • correct any mistake I made.
    • suggest other good ideas.


    You probably noticed that my English isn't native level, I'm French, so I'm sure there are weird things in the preamble. I would very much appreciate any correction. (If you could just specify when you do whether the grammar is wrong, or if the sentence just sounds awkward to native ears, that would be awesome!) There's no need to check the figures, a program I made verified them for me.

    Important note: this list doesn't include Pathfinder spells, though.

    The spell list can be found HERE. Thank you!

    This is a very small thing, but unlike in French, the English language doesn't insert a space before a colon. So instead of "Some figures :" you should say "Some figures:".

    I didn't notice anything too weird otherwise, so good job! Granted, I'm a bit tired and I might not be reading too well tonight, so maybe someone else will have another note for you.

    Thank you. I will update that and add a table of contents.

    Mindrape and Programmed Amnesia should both be on there. There is one huge mechanical difference and a critical change of descriptor. Programmed Amnesia is less of an update and more of a non-evil alternative.

    This is a very good list, thank you.

    Alright unless someone objects to this, I will add mindrape in the next version.

    Thank you.

    I think for the sake of completion you should include Augment Object and Energy Buffer on the list.

    Great work! I was just thinking to post and ask if someone knew about a list like this and BAM, I see your post. You're a saviour!

    I feel like Antimagic Aura, Lutzaen's Frequent Jaunt and Lower Spell Resistance should be added to the list: Antimagic Aura has different targeting mechanics, material component and partially effect (i.e. it also affects the target's magic items) from Antimagic Ray; Lutzaen's Frequent Jaunt has different range, duration and effect (you can't act after teleporting with Lutzaen's Frequent Jaunt because it works like dimension door) from Dimension Jumper and it's from a different school; Lower Spell Resistance is a completely different spell from Vulnerability (funny enough, they were both present in Draconomicon and only Vulnerability was updated in Spell Compendium).

    Will you add spells from Dragon Magazine/Compendium?

    I've just added Antimagic Aura and Lutzaen's Frequent Jaunt. You are confusing Vulnerability with Spell Vulnerability, which are two different, separate spells.

    Edit: I won't list spells from magazines, and, as far as I know, there's no wizard spells in Dragon Compendium. I believe this list is quite finished now, I'd rather correct nitpicks from now on. If someone finds a spell that I've never seen, I'd be more than happy to add it though.

    The Spell Compendium, on pages 5 and 6, has an official list of spells that were renamed when they were included in that book. None of the spells you left off is on that list, so if the presumed-update is from Spell Compendium, then both are still valid.

    I'm aware, I've used that list many times. I still think it isn't quite complete, and Lower Spell Resistance -> Spell Vulnerability is probably the most blatant omission.

    It might not be complete in practice, but it's officially complete. Which means that the spells not on that list are officially still valid, even if they probably shouldn't be.

    Thanks

    As Hide Life is being mentioned in other threads, I realized I somehow omitted to list it while browsing Tome and Blood. This has been corrected now.

    I'd like to also say thank you for your contribution to the gaming community.

    I've finally opened up the list, and wow, it does look pretty. As a cleric player, I'm sad that it's wizards-only, but it's still a list I can use.

    Do you have this list in a spreadsheet format, or is it able to be converted to one? Being able to filter and rearrange lists like this is something I enjoy. Further, if it's in a spreadsheet format, you can likely more efficiently compare it against two other (offline) sources that I have if you'd like to check for completeness.

    Edit: One other thing -- you haven't included your screen name/name in the document! I'd like to be able to share this with others and make it easy for them to know who made it.

    This has been redacted via LaTeX. I can certainly provide the original .tex file, but unfortunately I have no spreadsheets

    I purposely didn't include my nickname in the document, I like it anonymous. If the people you shared this with ask where you found it: just give them the link of this thread.

    If you somehow manage to compare this list with other lists you have, feel free to show the results and point out the spells I missed! Thanks

    I once saw it but I've no idea where to find it again. It was something much broader right? Like the entire list of all spells from all classes?

    I should add them, the only things I don't add are things from magazines and Pathfinder. But would you know what web enhancement each spell comes from?

    For example, I'm willing to add Animate Dead Familiar but I don't know what book should be related to it.

    I don't suppose there's any chance you've done (Or know of.) a similar list for Divine Spells, do you? You know, for the aspiring Archivists out there?
