D&D 5E Spell Versatility is GONE. Rejoice!

I'm so happy that sanity prevailed and Spell Versatility as we knew it from the UA is dead as Dillinger in Tasha's.

I'd have been OK with it on the Ranger, but that's only because the Ranger should've just been a prepared caster, anyway. But the full casters who stood to get it? Nope. No stepping on the Wizard's toes with a stiletto heel for you.

Meh. It mostly seemed to exist to give DMs who are overly bound to RAW and/or running AL permission to allow players to swap out spell choices they regretted, and was clearly marked as optional so DMs who didn’t need that permission could leave it out. I don’t really see that anything is gained by its exclusion. Nothing is lost by it at my table, but something may be lost at tables where the DM is afraid to deviate from RAW.

The appropriateness of spell versatility is entirely dependent on how fast you level up.

I like the idea of swapping one spell once per session as appropriate.

It amazes me the glee people express in seeing stuff others had really wanted "die" or "fail."

All the classes can already do it when they level-up. It's not a big deal.

If the group is trying to constantly take long rest to custom-tailor their spells for every encounter, then I'm going to step in and say no. But if a player is unhappy with a choice and wants to swap something out once in a while, that's totally fine.

Another case of using common sense and letting the rules be a guide, not a prison.

Ok, I don't have the book and won't have it until December at least. What is in place of spell versatility considering they even announced it in the promotional materials?

Bards, sorcerers and warlocks can change a cantrip at levels in which they get an ASI. Each of those classes can instead change something specific at those levels: skill expertise for bards, metamagic feature for sorcerers and pact boon or a spell from mystic arcanum for warlocks.
