Bolt has a few of meanings:

  1. In World of Warcraft it almost always means a roll of cloth processed by a tailor.
  2. Sometimes it can refer to an item associated with lightning, as in a bolt of lightning.
  3. In other games, a crossbow (ranged weapon) might use ammo with this name. In World of Warcraft, crossbows use arrows.
  4. A damage spell that requires time to travel. In many cases, the spell's name will have the word "bolt" in it, but by no means is this an exclusive criteria.
