Darkbolt was an evocation spell unique to clerics with the Darkness domain. It released bolts of darkness that damaged and dazed the target.


The caster unleashed beams of darkness from his open palm. The caster had to succeed at a ranged touch attack in order to strike the target. The number of bolts the cleric could hurl increased with his power although only a maximum seven bolts could be thrown.

A Darkbolt dealt a moderate amount of damage to a living creature, and the creature was dazed for a short time. Undead took no damage from the spell, but could be dazed.
