Notes

  • It uses the lightning animation instead of the normal nature animation.
  • Has traveling time, so can be combined with [Chain Lightning] or a Shock which are instant for spike damage.

Tips

  • This is a good spell to start fights at lower levels. Untalented and used against a foe with no speed boosting abilities at max range, you can cast 3 Lightning Bolts in the span of time it takes for a mob to reach you. You can even cast a shock just as the third Lightning Bolt finishes casting to max out damage against a pulled, incoming mob.
  • It is also more likely to use during combat because of its 2.5 second casting time as opposed to other classes' similar function spells and is fairly mana-efficient.

Patch changes

  • Cataclysm-Logo-Small Patch 4.3.0 (29-Nov-2011): Lightning Bolt has a new spell effect.
  • Bc icon Patch 2.3.0 (13-Nov-2007): Cast time reduced to 2.5 (from 3.0 where applicable), mana costs reduced, benefit from spell damage have been modified to maintain the DPS of the the previous, longer casting time.
