Let’s put philosophy and metaphysics aside for this post. When you get down to the flashy effects at "street level," just what really separates an Eldritch caster’s Sorcery from a Priest armed with Cants? How are the manifestations of a Psion different than those of an Elder caster? Primal vs. Sorcerer Priest? What’s the difference between the types of spells they can cast?

THE key difference is what’s in their repertoire of available spells.

I usually play spell casters in RPGs. And ever since the second edition of D&D (long long ago …) I’ve tried to break down spells into one of 8 categories. They are: ATTACK (spells that do direct damage to foes), BUFF (spells that help you (mostly) to hit and do damage foes), CONTROL (spells that move, slow down or otherwise penalize enemies), ESPIONAGE (spells that give bonuses to interactions, provide information, or spells that keep you from being detected), MOBILITY (spells that let you go places you otherwise couldn’t), RESTORATIVE (healing and spells that get rid of “bad stuff”), PROTECTION (spells that prevent you from being damaged or controlled) and SUMMON (spells that either bring you minions to fight for you or other useful gear).

When looked at in this light it becomes obvious that different traditions are better at some areas than others.

The cliff notes version at Tiers 1&2 is:

CANTS: unsurprisingly are the best at Restoration. They also have good Protection and Buffing spells. Preists of Yaris aside, Cants are lacking in Mobility and to a lesser extent Control. The choice of your God gives additional access to different options.
ELDER: has the best Summoning options. It also has great Control selections and has comparatively good Mobility & Espionage options. Not much Protection, also some important Attack spells (like Elemental Bolt) are slower than other traditions. Zero Restorative.
ELDRITCH: Strong attack and Control options. Comparatively good Espionage options. More and better Protection & Buff options than Elder, but less Mobility (@ Tier 1) and Summoning. Zero Restorative
PRIMAL: fairly balanced across the 8 categories. You get at least a little in everything over the First 2 tiers. With Path of the Raptor you get true flight (with some restrictions) at T2. That makes it the winner in Mobility. Not great in Protection.
PSIONIC: fairly balanced across the 8 categories. The winner in Espionage by virtue of Clairvoyance (and some other decent options). Different Attack and Control options that aren’t based on the elemental tradition. Better Protection than Elder, Eldritch, or Primal. Unique powers that target “entropic” foes. Your Heritage also unlocks additional options.
SORCERER PRIEST: does everything except mobility. Based on the choices you make in your Tier 1 & 2 spells you can essentially match most other Traditions in the areas they do best (you still finish second to Cants in Restorative and probably Psionics in Espionage). But even if you can do almost anything you can’t do everything. More than the other traditions, you need to think about what you want to excel at.

What follows in the next 6 posts is a look at the spell lists of each type of caster with spells slotted into functions (Attack, Buff etc) rather than the tradition they come from. A few spells (like Benediction of the Gods) get listed in more than one place. If you disagree with where a spell is listed feel free to let me know and share the place you think it should be (and why it should be changed) .

I would put the tier II heritage spell, "aspect of the beast" under a mobility spell as well, since it is the earliest form of good flight that allows spell casting while in effect. Very powerful heritage spell in that role.
