    Post Spells by Elemental Damage/Type

    I was wondering if anyone has made a list of spells for 5e sorted by the type of damage they do or their relation to a particular element. It would be very helpful to have such a list available. We could also sort spells by other categories too, like summoning or raising.

    If anyone would be kind enough to post a list or even part of one, I will include it in the OP for easier viewing.

    I'll try starting out.

    Fire Spells
    *This list now includes all spells from the Player's Handbook, Elemental Evil Player's Companion and the Sword Coast Adventurer's Guide

    Sacred Flame is radiant damage no? =P

    I remember there was a guide with different list of spells ( rituals, those without V, without S, etc)
    Probably not by elements by could help with the other kind of lists.

    I'll try to find it.

    There's the various lists on Donjon, but they don't include an elemental category.

    I would say retain Sacred Flame on the list (on point of it's having Flame in the name, but add a note that it actually does radiant damage.

    Fire and Electric are the most common damage types among spells

    After you force yourself thru those, you just need to get thru the small burst of Radiant, Cold, and Force

    I'll get to that soon

    I also added a list of creatures that resist or are immune to certain types of damage

    Great list! I noticed that it's missing Chromatic Orb at Level 1, but everything else looks like it's still holding up. Thanks!
