prepared spells dnd 5e

Classes with prepared spells (Clerics, Druids, Paladins, Wizards, and Artificers) determine how many spells they can prepare using a formula that uses their spellcasting modifier and their class level. Here’s how to determine how many spells each class can prepare:

Class # Prepared Spells
Cleric Wisdom modifier + Cleric level
Druid Wisdom modifier + Druid level
Wizard Intelligence modifier + Wizard level
Artificer Intelligence modifier + 1/2 Artificer level, rounded down
Paladin Charisma modifier + 1/2 Paladin level, rounded down

No matter what, every prepared spellcaster class can prepare a minimum of one spell. Artificers and Paladins are considered “half casters,” which is why they can prepare fewer spells than their “full caster” counterparts (and why they get access to higher-leveled spells at a slower pace).

Regardless of which of the above classses you are, you choose a list of prepared spells when you finish a long rest. The spell must be of a level for which you have spell slots.
