  • In confined spaces, individual bolts tend to hit walls or objects and not do damage. Because of that it is a good idea to get another spell such as Magma Spear or Icy Blast to deal with situations like that.
  • Careful aiming of prismatic bolt can cause it to curve around corners and ledges, allowing you to kill enemies while staying safe.


Skills that will directly improve Prismatic Bolt:

  • Fire Brand - Causes a burst of fire damage when you hit enemies effected by Burn
  • Ice Brand - Causes a burst of ice damage when you hit enemies effected by Freeze
  • Lightning Brand - Causes a burst of lightning damage when you hit enemies effected by Shock
