[edit] Strategy

Silences a minion before dealing 1 damage. With its low cost, it is a cheap solution to an enemy minion which has a strong effect or was buffed by many spells. The order of Earth Shock's effects is significant: minions will be silenced, removing all card text and enchantments, before then suffering 1 damage.

Earth Shock is great for defeating minions with Divine Shield such as Scarlet Crusader, 1 health minions which are currently buffed to higher health values such as Twilight Drake, and minions such as Harvest Golem without triggering its Deathrattle.

[edit] Lore

Earth Shock was a shaman spell with a 6 second cooldown that interrupted spells, and silenced anyone interrupted this way. It was changed in 3.2, and no longer interrupts or applies silence.
