How is the damage for prismatic bolt calculated?

Do the +damage effects get added onto your weapon damage?

Does focus increase the damage done like the skills that do increased % damage?
A wizard did it.

It just does the displayed damage (which increases with skill level). Like some other skills, it doesn't say anything about weapon damage or weapon DPS, so it doesn't get any boosts from your weapon or strength (which makes it more suitable for setups that don't have much strength or 2-handed weapons).

Buuut this does elemental damage, and focus increases ALL elemental damage, be it from a weapon or skill or whatever, so focus increases that.
There are three types of people in the world: people that can count, and people that can't.

It also gets boost from all damage %, and any elemental damage % from equipment.

Pump focus and get as much elemental or all damage from gear as you can. Keep in mind that a buff of 10 focus is good for 5% to magic damage which is as good as all damage for that particular spell.
