Spells, for the most part, do magic damage, which is great as mere armor doesn't prevent from magical attacks. They're usually also ranged. The downside is that one must carry a spellbook or a scroll, and must have a mana pool. Scrolls are typically single-use only, whereas spellbooks are able to be cast multiple times.
