No, they're not the same. The wizard's fine inks are cheaper! the material components you expended as you experiment with the spell to master it, as well as fine inks you need to record it The 50 gp the wizard spends covers piles of duplicate material components, and also some good-quality ink. Even cheap material components add up when you're using ...

The published rules don't go into this level of detail. As far as I see it there are two basic ways to rule this. The pragmatic approach Fine inks are rare, and rare inks are fine. They cost about the same, so they are the same. The flavourful approach For example: A wizard's fine inks are the sort you could use to write an invitation to a society ball. ...

There's no economic impact to the game in ...

No mention that it has to be in a wizard book, just that it is a wizard spell. Similar text exists for the Ritual Caster feat. The Warlock's ...

Maybe the wizard can copy the spell into her spellbook... The 5e rules for multiclassing (PHB p. 164) state that your spells known and prepared are based on your class level for each class, but your spell slots are based on your combined levels, which may result in you having spell slots of higher level than any of the spells you know. They provide an ...

"Fine" means "of high quality", while rare means "hard to get". If your DM is a mean person, she won't equate those. On the other hand, maybe it goes one way, but not the other: maybe the "rare" inks can be used in place of "fine" ones (hard to get ink should be of high quality, right?), while "fine" inks can't be used in place of "rare" ones (there's a ...
