Consolidated List of "Bargain Bin" Spells for Artificers
http://brilliantgameologists.com/boards/index.php?topic=12661

... has slightly different organization to it. Same general idea though.

I'm not sure I agree with that.  That list is about getting the lowest-level versions of spells possible, while this is going to be a complete listing of spells.  I'd include the Trapsmith's Haste at 1st level, and the Sor/Wiz and Bard's haste spells at 3rd level (even that domain that gives haste at 4th level).

The purpose is to give a resource a) to people making clerics, wizards, or any other class with basically full list access in one way or another and b) people who are entering a class like Master Specialist, Wyrm Wizard, or whatever that adds spells to their spell list, with certain limitations.

One thing you should mention about Necrotic Skull Bomb, it's a swift action to cast!  So, you could fire off that and an Enervation in the same round!

And one thing to add to Scourge of Force: it uses melee touch attacks instead of ranged, so you don't need to worry about taking a -4 for firing into a melee.

Mystic Shield is in Anauroch: Empire of Shade. Get reach spell and make this persistable, and you've got one hell of a badass defensive spell. Mix with Ghostform or Starmantle and win at life.

Oh, no prob. I was just ballparking with the link.


Chameleon Crafting feat in Dr#349 ... is one of the rare ways
to get Scrolls of Psi over to Wizards or Archivists.
A few well known goodies, worth bringing over.

Good luck with this - I'm in the middle of doing a complete divine spell list by class, level and source, and there's enough just in that to drive someone insane :p

Let me know if there's anything I can help with.

Freezing Fog (SpC) is pretty awesome.

I assume that we are going to skip the obvious stuff, like the Planar Binding chain, Alter Self/Polymorph/Shapechange, and the like?

I can't believe this hasn't been done before.  Well, done competently.

  • Constantly talking isn't necessarily communicating
    • Cantrip, Gestalt Gish
Let's see if I can add some spells I use often, but don't see mentioned often:
2 - Whispercast (LoM), Shroud of Undeath (SpC)
3 - Permeable Form (LoM)
4 - Ice Shield (Frostburn), Pronouncement of Fate (HoH), Suppressing Field (CM)
6 - Warp Destiny (RoD), Freezing Glance (Frostburn)
7 - Pact of Return (HoH)
9 - Choose Destiny (RoD)

There's also lots of nice gems in BoED, my favorite one giving an ally (or party, for the higher level version) Resist 50% damage from any source.

Read, every day, something no one else is reading. Think, every day, something no one else is thinking. Do, every day, something no one else would be silly enough to do. It is bad for the mind to be always part of unanimity.

Permeable Form is especially great if you can persist it, since duration is only one round.

On the note of one round, Wraithstrike.

Oh, and there's stuff like Mace of Odo. But who ever allows that?

If so, dragon had some spells from arcana unearthed, which was 3.0.  Those dragon or feat only spells really made my day.  Fly like an arrow, the one that turns lines into cones, etc.  Who doesn't like a dragon that can break the sound barrier?

Not a fan of Mace of Odo.  I assume you're talking about the spell absorption effect, which is nice, but the spell occupies your hand while you're waiting to get shot, it only negates one spell, and it does nothing against area effects.  The melee effect is a bit lacking for a single-target, melee range touch spell, even with the Paralysis rider.  I think I'd prefer Blink or a Fog spell for spell defense, and Chain Missile for damage, while the fast-upcoming spells Wings of Flurry and Greater Blink just make it silly to use Mace of Odo at all.

Also, Mace of Odo is freaking hard to get.  Either you're a cleric and you take a very bad feat, you take levels of Master Specialist as an Evoker (...seriously?), or some other, similarly ridiculous things that you really shouldn't be doing.  Even if Extra Spell was allowed to pluck it for anyone, there are better 3rd-level spells out there that you can pluck just as easily that are worthwhile for longer.  Even Warmages can use Eclectic Learning to grab Ray of Retaliation at the same level as Mace of Odo, and Warmages can really benefit from some utility spells granted from some Dragonmark feats.
