Can a multiclass Wizard copy any Wizard spell they find into their spellbook? is a dupe target for a decent number of questions. However, I question whether some of them are actually duplicates. The gist of most of them seem to be that any type of question asking about learning or casting spells as a multiclassed spellcaster gets duped to this.
My problem is that several of the dupes are asking different questions. The wizard class has a very specific method of learning spells (copying into their spellbook) that no other class has a parallel to. I argue that any of the questions not asking about wizards, for example, are already out for that reason alone. The inclusion of a spellbook changes the question and complicates the answer needlessly when trying to suss out the actual answer for any other class combination. Look at the answers for the question above. They are full of fuss and debate over the requirements for copying and for preparing, a debate that has no relevance for any other class.
I posit that people searching for one of the duped questions and getting redirected to this one may be pretty confused at how the answers relate to their classes that don't have any spellbook at all and that there are better clearer ways to arrange these dupes to provide the best answers. More importantly, perhaps, to our procedures here is that the inclusion of a wizard and copying spells seems to make the questions different even though the answers remain pretty much the same.
Note: I do not want, nor do I think we should have a question for every different multiclass combination and level combination. That is not what I am saying. I simply think that multiclassed wizard questions should be isolated into their own group and something else should be done with the rest of the classes.
Here are the questions I think are not dupes (and reasons):
No wizard classes:
- Sorcerer Multiclass learning spells
- When Multi-classing Paladin with Sorcerer, could I Prepare Paladin Spells at my Sorcerer Spell Level (5th level spells max)?
Has to do with casting from another person's spellbook:
I honestly think that possibly more of these questions would be better off not duped as well, but I can always ask about those later after these (IMO clearer) examples are talked about.
Should these question's duplications be redone?
