  • Before the Runescape HD update, Fire Bolt differed in appearance and shape from other spells in its category. While Wind Bolt, Water Bolt, and Earth Bolt appeared pointy, Fire Bolt appeared round, and noticeably rotated in flight. After the update, all Bolt spells were changed to adopt the shape and texture of Fire Bolt, to maintain consistency.
  • On 24 June 2010, all of the elemental spells received a graphical make-over.
