Spell Compendium is an accessory for the 3.5th-edition of Dungeons & Dragons® ruleset.

Spell Compendium provides players and Dungeon Masters with quick access to the D&D spells they need most. Drawing from a treasure trove of sources, Spell Compendium is the one place to find spells that are referenced time and again: the best, most iconic, most popular, and most frequently used. This convenient reference introduces a new spell format that includes descriptive text.


  • Introduction
  • Chapter 1: Spell Descriptions
  • Chapter 2: Spell Lists
  • Appendix: Domain Spells


Spell Compendium compiles spells from a variety of other Dungeons & Dragons® books and updates them to use the 3.5th-edition ruleset. Spell lists are included for all spellcasting classes in the Player's Handbook and Dungeon Master's Guide, along with a selection of cleric domains.

Sources include Draconomicon: The Book of Dragons, Manual of the Planes, and Savage Species, along with numerous issues of Dragon and articles originally found on the Wizards of the Coast website.

Spell Compendium was reproduced as a premium reprint featuring a new cover and including errata, released on April 16, 2013.
