'''Thunderbolt''' is a level 2 [[Conjurations]]/[[Air Magic]] spell, but as it is only available through the [[lightning rod]], its performance is dependent on [[Evocations]]. This spell has a variable mana cost. The first use will always cost 2 charges. Any consecutive use will then spend all available charges in the rod, but never more than 5. After the first use, it's possible to activate the rod even with only one charge left, though doing so with less than 5 charges remaining will result in significantly less spellpower.
