The Priest Spellbook is used by clerics, druids, and rangers. Some spells are universal, while others are limited to either clerics or druids. Rangers gain use of spells available to druids upon reaching level 8. The Cleric/Ranger multi-class is able to use both cleric and druid spells.

Druids can begin using level 5 spells at level 9. Due to the experience cap of 161,000 experience with Baldur's Gate: Tales of the Sword Coast, a cleric will never be able to use level 5 spells in an unmodified game. Rangers can use spells available to druids at level 8, but with the experience cap will only be able to use level 1 spells.

The Priest Spellbook in Baldur's Gate has 50 spells.
