After having determined exactly which spells can be found upon common scrolls, I have compiled this list of useful spells, as well as their durations and abilities. This information is intended to act as a guide in locating spells for potential scroll infusion projects depending upon your level of skill and interest. For specific information as to the actual working of the spell, Scroll Infusion (714), see Mekthros's published works.

The spells below have been sorted into three main groups; Novice Collection, Intermediate Collection, and Advanced Collection. The Novice Collection consists of spells that are somewhat easy to find, charge, and utilize for an extended duration with a relatively low amount of Arcane Symbol Ranks. The second group, Intermediate Collection, are spells that are more difficult to find and charge, and/or have a duration which requires many ranks of Arcane Symbols to use efficiently. Finally, the Advanced Collection contains an assortment of spells very difficult to find and infuse, and are likely to only be useful in select situations.

At the guide's end, one will find a complete list of spells, levels 1 - 19, that cannot be found upon normally occurring scrolls. This amount of gathered data is useful to the avid Scroll Infusor as it will help them avoid searching for scrolls that do not normally exist.

One should note that spells from the Minor Elemental, Sorcerer, and Minor Spiritual circles are not listed within this guide, as its purpose is to aid the infusing sorcerer in locating scrolls most useful in serving their needs. Neither the Minor Elemental nor the Minor Spiritual circles suffer from any spell exemptions on commonly found scrolls from levels 1 - 19.
