Brenatto's Voltaic Bolt is a spell created by Veth Brenatto. It is cast on a crossbow bolt as a bonus action prior to firing it, providing 3d6 additional lightning damage if the shot hits.[3]



  • Shortly before the first appearance of the spell, Sam was complaining that Liam only names spells after Caleb.


  1. The spell was created when Veth was a level 12 Arcane Trickster, and as such only had 1st and 2nd level spell slots.
  2. See "A Heart Grown Cold" (2x113) at 1:12:47.  Veth uses Voltaic Bolt and Sam references using a 3rd level slot, but may have been upcasting.
  3. 3.0 3.1 See "The Ruined Sliver" (2x104) at 2:15:10.  Veth accidentally shoots herself with her own spell, dealing 4d6 damage, 1d6 of which was the crossbow bolt.
  4. As an Arcane Trickster, Veth learns Wizard spells.
