How to Get the Water Bolt

Alternatively, you can hover your cursor on the books found in Dungeon. As soon as you see a tooltip icon appearing on a book, you can mine it as it is a Water Bolt.

Make sure you are standing close to the books, as the tooltip icon will not appear if you are too far away from the books.
