Lightning Bolt is a mage spell from the Storm tree in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Information Edit

  • Electric damage: 200% Weapon Damage
  • Paralyzed duration: 2 seconds per nearby enemy
  • Cooldown time: 24 seconds
  • Cost: 65 mana

Upgrade Edit

Lightning Bolt (Inquisition) Exploding Bolt
Upgrade Lightning Bolt does more damage if there are other enemies nearby, and if there are enough close to the striking point, a wave of force will knock back all enemies except for the paralyzed primary target.

Damage Bonus: 200% For every creature within 4 meters
Lightning Bolt (Inquisition) Lightning Cascade
Requires: Trespasser
Lightning Bolt now paralyzes other enemies near your main target. The more enemies it affects, the shorter the duration.

Notes Edit

  • Initiates a Paralyze effect, which can be quickly detonated either into a Discharge, which inflicts AoE, friendly fire-proof electricity damage that leaves affected enemies Shocked, or into a Basic Combo, which provides a large damage bonus.
  • The Lightning Cascade upgrade is very useful for priming groups of enemies for Combo Denotations; however, the detonator must be applied very quickly (preferably by a different character) while the enemy is still primed.

Bugs Edit

  • The paralyze duration is not increased if there are more enemies around. An unofficial fix for pcIcon pcis available here.
