Bolt spells are the second weakest elemental group of magic combat spells in the standard spellbook. Elemental staves can be used to cover the costs of these spells. These are free-to-play spells. Like all combat spells, each damage point caused by these spells yields 0.2 magic experience points and 0.133 constitution experience points.
Wearing Chaos gauntlets from the Family Crest quest will increase the maximum damage of bolt spells by +30. This makes the spells almost as strong as the blast spells while requiring a much lower magic level and rune cost.
|Spell||Requirement||Runes||Base XP||Max Damage|
|Air Bolt||17||2||13.5||90||28 coins|
|Water Bolt||23||22||16.5||100||54 coins|
|Earth Bolt||29||22||19.5||110||48 coins|
|Fire Bolt||35||22||22.5||120||48 coins|
- Before the RuneScape HD update, the Wind, Water, and Earth Bolts had a pointy appearance while the Fire Bolt had a round appearance. After the update, all of the Bolt spells were changed to conform with the shape and texture of the Fire Bolt spell.
- On 24 June 2010, all of the elemental spells received a graphical make-over.
