- Speed Up and Increase Duration will improve the range of the Spell. The Slithering Path modifier also increases the range, but causes the spell to always fire at a downward angle.
- Conversely, Heavy Shot will reduce the range significantly.
- Very effective against Stevari since it can pierce projectile shields.
- Trigger or Timer spells can be used to deliver the lightning bolt to a safer distance. This will also bypass the additional cast delay, allowing for a deadly rapid fire ranged attack.
- Take great care when using this spell without the protective perks to guard against its effects. It is extremely easy to kill yourself with it, especially in the Hiisi Base and the The Vault, which consist mostly of steel walls
- Wands that contain electric-based spells in one of their slots will be electrified, shocking the player if they stay submerged in liquid for more than a couple of seconds with the wand equipped.
- Orbiting Arc modifier surprisingly removes homing and distance limit. This turns lightning bolt into infinite range bass-cannon.
