    [​IMG] I'm planning to play a Master of Radiance (PrC from Libris Mortis). This PrC gets a +2 caster level on spells with the Light descriptor while the Radiant Aura ability is active. Now I don't want to flip through all the spell descriptions of all (divine) spells in any available book. That takes too long. I would also like a list of spells that create a Ray effect.
    So my question is this:

    Does anybody have any idea where I can find a website or file to download that lists spells by subtype (like Light or Good desciptor) or effect (Ray, Cone, etc)?
    That would be a great help! :)

    No idea. But I can give you a list of spells with the Light descriptor right here:

    From Player's Handbook 3.5:

    Continual Flame (Cleric, Sorcerer/Wizard)
    Dancing Lights (Bard, Sorcerer/Wizard)
    Daylight (Bard, Cleric, Druid, Paladin, Sorcerer/Wizard)
    Faerie Fire (Druid)
    Flare (Bard, Druid, Sorcerer/Wizard)
    Light (Bard, Cleric, Druid, Sorcerer/Wizard)
    Sunbeam (Druid, Sun domain)
    Sunburst (Druid, Sorcerer/Wizard, Sun domain)

    (For some strange reason, "Searing Light" didn't have the Light descriptor.)

    Book of Exalted Deeds:

    Celestial Brilliance (Cleric, Glory domain, Sorcerer/Wizard)
    Crown of Brilliance (Cleric)
    Curtain of Light (Sanctified)
    Lantern Light (Cleric, Paladin, Sorcerer/Wizard, Vassal of Bahamut)

    Spell Compendium:

    Anger of the Noonday Sun (Druid)
    Blinding Breath (Sorcerer/Wizard)
    Blistering Radiance (Cleric, Sorcerer/Wizard)
    Breath Flare (Sorcerer/Wizard)
    Glowing Orb (Cleric, Sorcerer/Wizard)
    Guiding Light (Bard, Cleric, Sorcerer/Wizard)
    Heartfire (Bard, Druid)
    Light of Lunia (Celestia domain, Cleric, Sorcerer/Wizard)
    Light of Mercuria (Cleric, Sorcerer/Wizard)
    Light of Venya (Cleric, Sorcerer/Wizard)
    Lucent Lance (Cleric, Sorcerer/Wizard)
    Luminous Gaze (Sorcerer/Wizard)
    Moonbeam (Moon domain)
    Moonfire (Moon domain)
    Nimbus of Light (Cleric, Purification domain)
    Radiant Assault (Cleric, Sorcerer/Wizard)
    Rainbow Beam (Sorcerer/Wizard)
    Rainbow Blast (Sorcerer/Wizard)
    Ray of Light (Bard, Sorcerer/Wizard)
    Righteous Aura (Paladin)
    Shadowblast (Cleric, Druid)
    Wall of Light (Cleric, Sorcerer/Wizard)

    Hope this is helpful. :)

    Sure is! Thanks! :)

    I never noticed that. It's weird! The first spell that comes to my mind that would have the Light descriptor, is Searing Light.
    The Master of Radiance CAN cast Searing Light at a +2 CL while her Radiant Aura is active, though. The MoR's Searing Light ability is my main reason for getting the PrC.

    Strange. Then again, it could just be a typo in the Player's Handbook. I've found several mistakes, both grammar- and spelling-wise, and rule-wise, in the 3rd and 3.5 rulebooks.

    It isn't on WotC's official lists of errata for PHB 3.5 and Libris Mortis, either... :???:

    Talk to the DM. I am sure they will ok it. It is an obvious miss by Wotc.
