#8249 [CORE] - Bolt of Glory does piercing damage

Current Behaviour
Bolt of Glory (level 6 cleric spell) does piercing damage

Desired Behaviour
The spell is supposed to do magic damage

This issue has already been discussed here. According to that thread the issue was fixed (i.e. spell changed to do magic damage), but it in BGII:EE 1.2.2030 the spell is still doing piercing damage. The relevant files are BOLTDEM.EFF, BOLTELEM.EFF, BOLTPRIM.EFF, and BOLTUND.EFF.

As was discussed in that thread, based on the spell description, it makes no sense to treat the spell as a physical projectile. A side of effect of doing piercing damage is that the spell is blocked by stoneskin. Piercing damage also severely limits its use against all skeletal undead.

I'm attaching modded versions of the relevant files for anyone who's interested (just unzip into override folder).
