For example, the Bard feature Magical Secrets says:

Choose two spells from any class[...] The chosen spells count as bard spells for you.

I'm looking for a conclusive list of such features. Please note that the Spellcasting feature is not included in this, neither are features that allow you to cast a specific spell a certain number of times per long or short rest.

All official releases.

Motivation: Being able to cast spells such as Green-Flame Blade or Eldritch Blast are normally exclusive to only a small selection of classes. A feature that would allow, say, a Cleric to cast these spells might open up a ton of new options for character builds that are centered around such a spell.

    \$\begingroup\$ @goodguy5 hold up! those two features are actually the Spellcasting feature itself, which initially grants you the ability to cast spells. However, if you read the question's body again, you will see that I am actually looking for features that contain "[the new spells] count as [your class] spells for you", in word or spirit. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ Part of the trouble is that any such list becomes obsolete as soon as relevant new material is released. That’s one reason a question can be “too broad”: it’s a list that potentially needs endless updates. \$\endgroup\$ Commented Jan 18, 2019 at 21:31

    \$\begingroup\$ @ammut Questions are judged individually, not relative to others. Also, votes are orthogonal to whether a question should be open or closed—people can upvote for any reason they want, so there’s nothing to stop off topic or other questions with issues from having a high score but still being closed. Also, I’m not laying down the law here—I haven’t voted or used mod powers—I’m giving information. Trying to disprove me won’t do anything. \$\endgroup\$ Commented Jan 18, 2019 at 21:58

1 Answer 1



  • Magical Secrets - Level 10, 14, 18 - PHB p54
    Choice of any two spells.
  • Additional Magical Secrets (College of Lore) - Level 6 - PHB p55
    Choice of any two spells.


  • Arcane Initiate (Arcana Domain) - Level 1 - SCAG p125
    Choice of two Wizard cantrips.
  • Arcane Mastery (Arcana Domain) - Level 17 - SCAG p126
    Choice of four Wizard spells (one each of 6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th level).


  • Divine Magic (Divine Soul) - Level 1 - XGE p50
    Whenever you replace or learn a sorcerer spell, choose from the cleric or sorcerer spell list.


  • Pact of the Tome - Level 3 - PHB p108
    Choice of any three cantrips.
  • Book of Ancient Secrets (Eldrich Invocation) - Level 3 (earliest) - PHB p110
    Choice of any two ritual spells.

There are other methods for gaining spells not normally on your class's spell list that don't meet the question's criteria:

  • Subclass features that give always prepared spells sometimes give spells not on the class's spell list, but you do not choose the spells
  • Racial features always specify the spell modifier independent of the character's class
  • Spells gained from Feats are treated as spells of the class whose list they're on

Given the stated intent in the comments, I'd recommend a Greenflame Blade Arcana Cleric, who adds their Wisdom modifier to both damage rolls at level 8.

  • \$\begingroup\$ There's an Unearthed Arcana option that allows this too; the Lore Mastery wizard archetype has a class feature that allows you to try to cast any spell from any class (that you have spell slots for). Might be worth including... although it doesn't actually let you learn the spell like your other suggestions... \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ I believe the "All official releases" clause would disqualify playtest content. If not then I think that's close enough to work for this \$\endgroup\$
