Effects[edit]

Perks[edit]

Notes[edit]

  • Thunderbolt is essentially just a much more powerful (and expensive) version of Lightning Bolt, with added sound effects and screen shake.
  • Like most Lightning spells, it can be used to set off Lightning Runes from a safe distance.
  • It has much shorter range than the equivalent Incinerate and Icy Spear spells, but the fact that it is cast instantly instead of as a projectile makes it much easier to hit moving targets so long as they're within range.

Bugs[edit]

  • A dual-cast version of this spell may miss the target even when aimed correctly. ?[verification needed — needs verification/testing to determine the cause]
