For all battle-minded spell casters, this is a real alternative to fire-based attack spells. Casting Lightning will shoot a strong bolt of lightning at the target. No armour can stop it, and it is so fast it will always hit. But the disadvantage is that it causes less damage than fire spells.

In Ultima IX, weak enemies die after only one hit, while stronger foes need to be hit several times. However, note that the casting delay of this spell allows the foe to attack between spell castings.

Lore[edit]

Casting Lightning
Hurls a powerful bolt of lightning at your opponent.
This spell enables the mage to cast a bolt of lightning that will strike his target. This lightning is so destructive that no armor can protect its wearer from it.
This spell shoots a bolt of electrical energy at a specified target.

This elegant conjure brings the elemental energy of air in friction to the hand of the spellcaster who projects it forward as a bolt of lightning. Weaker creatures may receive fatal shocks, while sturdier creatures may

be shocked to find themselves rendered hairless. Be warned, for the mirthful sight of a bald goblin may give the advantage to him.
