  • 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.
  • Prior to the Evolution of Combat, wearing Chaos gauntlets from the Family Crest quest would increase the maximum damage of bolt spells by +30. On 24 March 2014, the damage increase was reinstated under the form of a 10% damage boost for all bolt spells.
