Notes Edit

  • 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 Edit

  • 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 be used 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 Edit

  • Warlords-Logo-Small Patch 6.0.2 (14-October-2014): Lightning Bolt can no longer be cast while moving by default. Effects like Spiritwalker’s Grace can still make the spell able to the cast while moving.

  • 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.
  • WoW Icon 16x16 Patch 1.11.0 (20-Jun-2006): Mana cost reduced approximately 17%.
