I see that the WOTC forums are closed. I also see in Google, that it had an amazing list of spells sorted by all sorts of topics. I also see that EN world had a "save WOTC forum posts" in their forum but I can't find these lists posted there.

Does anyone know if these lists exist anywhere else or if they are gone as soon as the cache is no longer searchable?

This is the cached version of the page that is missing:

Someone has reposted it on the EN World forums or you can access the Wayback Machine version which should last longer than Google's cache.

You could also just save the html page yourself (or copy out the information) so you always have a local copy.

    \$\begingroup\$ @GMNoob I actually used google, since it lets you search a specific site. Typing this into google returns the page as the first result site:enworld.org A Compilation of Useful Spell Lists \$\endgroup\$ – CollectiveWin Nov 10 '15 at 11:33

Crawford put a link to it on his October 2015 Sage Advice: http://dnd.wizards.com/articles/features/rules-references-october-2015

  • \$\begingroup\$ @GMNoob as I tried to mention earlier, if you are looking for a 5E list of spells you can sort by various factors, perhaps donjon.bin.sh/5e/spells might help. \$\endgroup\$ – Airatome Nov 9 '15 at 22:17
  • \$\begingroup\$ @Airatome as I responded, it doesn't have the filters that I want to sort by. Namely, "Does the spell make use of the casting stat" \$\endgroup\$ – GMNoob Nov 10 '15 at 5:55
