- Incantation of Lightning, CrAu35 CT: +14 (har har!). Vulc doesn't know how his sigil manifests for this spell, because he's never actually managed to cast it. He only learned it to give himself a bonus to enchanting similar effects into items.
- Bind Wound, CrCo10 CT: +11 Sigil: The target can smell molten metal, and his wounds feel hot
- Chirurgeon's Healing Touch, CrCo20 CT: +19 Sigil manifests the same as Bind Wound, but with the sound of hammer on anvil during the casting.
- Wizard's Leap, ReCo15 CT: +20 Sigil: The smell of molten metal and burning coal
- Conjuring the Mystic Tower, CrTe35 CT: +31 Sigil: During casting, the sound of hammer on anvil rings out, and bystanders can smell burning coal and molten steel. Upon completion, and the tower erects in a cloud of steam, accompanied by the hissing of a finished weapon being plunged into water.

- Miner's Keen Eye, InTe20 CT: +18 Sigil: the smell of molten steel and burning charcoal
- The Damascene Shiv* (functions as Crystal Dart), MuTe(Re)10 CT: +28 Sigil: The sound of hammer on anvil, and the dart rises from the ground in a puff of steam.
- Hauberk of Supreme Lightness*, PeTe30 CT: +31 Sigil: The sound of hammer on anvil at the time of casting; while under its effects, the armor bears Vulcanus' maker's mark— a development that leaves him reluctant to cast this spell on any armor not up to his own standards.
- The Phantasmal Squire*, ReTe25 (base 4, +2 metal, +1 Touch, +2 complexity). Transports armor up to 50 paces, placing it on or off the target. Int+Fin required for armoring up. CT: +46 Sigil: The sound of hammer on anvil
