Fire Bolt is the second weakest fire spell available in the standard spellbook. This spell requires three air runes, four fire runes, and one chaos rune to cast. Without boosts, the maximum damage of this spell is 12.

Players who have completed the Family Crest quest can wear Chaos gauntlets, which will increase the maximum damage of this spell to 15 (1 less than Fire Blast), and wearing an Occult necklace the gauntlets would make 16, thus tying Fire Blast. Wielding Staff of the Dead and the gauntlets would make it hit 17. If you use Staff of the Dead with Occult necklace, you are able to hit 18. Also, with Staff of the Dead, Slayer helmet (i) and Occult necklace, 21 is achievable on slayer tasks.

Tome of fire boost the original amount of damage by 50%. The maximum amount of damage a mid-level account can do with chaos gauntlets and Tome of fire is 22. Adding in Occult, boosts it to 24, Staff of the Dead boosts it to 25. Using both Staff of the Dead and Occult makes it a 28. If you add in the Ancestral robes set bonus you can push Fire Bolt to 30. This is a cheap alternative of a Iban blast's 25 max hit per death rune. All of that on top of the Slayer Helm (i) would make your max hit a 34 on slayer targets.

The Magic experience gained depends on the damage dealt. The amount of experience increases by 2 for each additional damage dealt as shown on the table below.
