Wasn't Edward black tentacles also a wizard spell?

Maybe a wizard or sorceror spell only?...

Why SSG don't add this spell to wizards and sorcerors for greater justice?

Thanks.

You are correct it is a 4th Level spell.

I believe the last word from Staff on this was that they considered the spell a unique trait of the warlock class and so were leaving it there.

---
At this time they have precedence on providing a spell to only one of the classes it was traditionally part of the spell list. Several Druid spells also belong in the Divine List for example.

The Devs have said a few times it will stay a Warlock spell to emphasize class diversity. Just like Earthquake should also be a cleric/FVS spell, but will likely remain Druid only (domains aside).
Not saying that I agree, I've wanted Evard's Black Tentacles since the first Wizard I rolled up during the 05 beta. But, I'm not going to expect it anytime soon.

My Guild get confused when I (deliberately) refer to the spell in DDO as Evan's Spiked Tentacles of Forced Intrusion.
Given the number of spells "missing" from spell lists for different classes, I would say to leave things as they are, until such time as there's a Spell List pass.
If there's an upcoming Wizard Pass in the near(ish) future, it might be cool to give this spell to Wizards specialised in Conjuration (add it to spellbook when they pick Conjuration IV from Archmage) and do the same with spells of similar power from the other schools that Wizards don't currently have access to.

That spell always makes my inner fourteen year old giggle.
