[[Bane]] will lower the cast time of Shadow Bolt by up to .5 seconds at max rank. [[Shadow and Flame]] will increase the amount of shadow spell damage that applies to the spell by 20% at max rank, whereas [[Shadow Mastery]] will increase the damage done by the Shadow Bolt by 15% at max rank. Similarly, [[Improved Shadow Bolt]] increases its damage by 10% at max rank.

[[Destructive Reach]] extends the range of Shadow Bolt to 36 yards and reduces generated threat by 10% at max rank.
 
 
[[Backlash]] and [[Nightfall (Warlock Talent)|Nightfall]] both give you a chance to make your next Shadow Bolt an instant cast. The former when you are hit by physical attacks, the latter every time when your [[Corruption|Corruption]] and [[Drain Life]] spells tick.
 
 
Shadow Bolt is a [[Warlock Talents#Destruction|Destruction]] spell, and thus gains the benefit of the talents [[Improved Shadow Bolt]], [[Cataclysm (talent)|Cataclysm]], [[Aftermath]], [[Devastation]], [[Intensity (warlock talent)|Intensity]], [[Destructive Reach]], [[Ruin]], and [[Soul Leech]].

Prior to Patch 2.0, rank 10 was available only as a Grimoire drop from bosses in the [[Ruins of Ahn'Qiraj]] instance. The spell can now be bought from a trainer at level 62.
