Elemental Lore: Fire (EL:F) has been updated to reinforce its offensive nature by allowing it to be substituted for any other Elemental Lore when calculating the lore bonus to Damage Factors (DF) for an elemental bolt. i.e. Elemental Lore: Earth normally increases the DF of Hurl Boulder (510), but if you have more ranks in Elemental Lore: Fire, those ranks will be used instead. Hybrid bolts that already use EL:F are not affected since they will always just use your EL:F and the other lore type. Hybrid bolts that don't use EL:F can have it replace the lore with the ranks they have the least in amount of ranks trained.

Personally I would have thought it Earth would be better as in it strengthens the lockpick, but I can see a justification for water

We tried to stick with general themes for each lore:

Fire: offensive
Earth: defensive
Water: Restoration and utility
Air: Time alteration and utility

It's only a general guideline, as sometimes a specific spell is strongly associated with an element that it doesn't make much sense to use any other element. You'll see why water lore makes more sense in the next couple of days.
