Elemental Focus adds a base of +20 to bolt spell attack strength (AS). Additional training in the Major Elemental spell circle increases the bolt AS bonus by +1 for every 2 major elemental spells known over 513, capped at ranks equalling a character's level. It is self-cast only.

Total bolt AS bonus = +20 + (MjE spells > 13 ÷ 2 )

Lore Benefit

Training in Elemental Lore, Fire will cumulatively add +1 AS per seed 4 summation of ranks on consecutive bolt attacks against the same target, capped at +25 total AS boost. The AS will increase whether or not the target is successfully hit, and only while casting bolt spells. Casting at another target removes this boost.

Casting non-bolt spells or general area spells (e.g. Elemental Wave (410) or Cone of Elements (518)) will not affect the focusing boost.
