Firebolt is the most basic spell in Diablo.

General InformationEdit

When cast, causes a burst of fire to erupts from the caster towards a designated target. It only does damage to a single enemy. The damage of this spell as well as the flight speed of the bolt increase with spell levels. At higher level, replacing it with Fireball is advised.

Fascinating Shrines add +2 to Firebolt, but decrease base maximum Mana by 10%.

Damage calculation: [1-10] + Spell Level + [Magic/8] + 1

Speed: 16 + 2 x Spell Level

Guardian spits Firebolts, its damage equal to that of the character's Firebolts.


The true essence of Fire lies at the edge of Energy and Matter. It is, therefore, a fairly simple matter to shape Mana into a magical flame. Controlling a bolt of this fire as it flies towards its target is another matter entirely. As experience and knowledge with this spell grows, both the intensity of the flame and the speed of the bolt can be increased with the caster feeling less exertion.
