Spells are special scrolls in Torchlight that any player can pick up and learn. They should not be confused with skills, which are class-specific.
Spells come in three types: Attack, Defense, and Charm, indicated by red, blue and green color coding. Most spells also come in different ranks, indicated by Roman numerals after their names. Spells sometimes have a significant cooldown period associated with them, unlike class skills.
Rare spells are more difficult to find and do not come in different ranks.
The player character has four slots for active spells. An active spell can be unlearned by holding CTRL and left-clicking the spell. This opens up the slot for another spell, but the old spell is lost.
Pets also have two spell slots. Adding and removing spells from pets works the same way as the player's spell slots. You can't control when pets cast spells, although putting your pet in Passive mode will prevent them from using spells. Some spells have longer cooldown times when used by pets.
