The Spellbook (Hotkey: P; called "Spellbook & Abilities" in the button tooltip on the Micro Menu) contains a list of all the various spells, abilities, and professions you have learned while playing, as well as mounts and companions you've collected.
Lower tabs Edit
The Spellbook tab contains right-side tabs for General abilities (Auto-attack, shoot, racial traits, and passive abilities) and your particular class's three talent trees, which contain the spells and abilities found on your action bars. Each ability or spell icon can be dragged onto an action bar. A Paladin, for example, would have a right-side General tab, then Holy, Retribution, and Protection tabs as well.
Shows a status bar for each primary and secondary profession as well as profession-related subskills. Icons for opening profession window or activating a subskill are shown and can be dragged onto an action bar.
Shows a preview of currently selected mount with icons for summoning spells for available mounts. Spell icons can be dragged onto an action bar.
Shows a preview of currently selected companion (non-combat pet) with icons for summoning spells for available companions. Spell icons can be dragged onto an action bar.
In Mists of Pandaria EditThis section concerns content exclusive to Mists of Pandaria.
In Mists of Pandaria, the abilities portion of the spell book was totally re-vamped again with a more generalized selection divided between Passive and Active tabs.
Pre- Cataclysm UI Edit
Spell and Ability Pages Edit
Each class had its own set of three tabs, each corresponding to a talent tree, where spells and abilities of a corresponding type are found. The highest rank of a spell was always shown, unless "Show all spell ranks" box is checked on the top of the page. This was useful to Mages, if they are supplying a lower level player with water or food so they can select the appropriate level food/water for who they are assisting.
