Strategy[edit | edit source]

Earthquake is an ideal way to deal with Reborn minions. After the spell deals 5 damage to all minions, any minions that have been reduced to 0 Health will die and be removed from the board, and any Reborn minions killed will be resummoned before the spell deals 2 damage to them. As Reborn are resummone with 1 Health, the additional 2 damage will finish them off.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Earthquake originally appeared as the Ultimate ability for the Far Seer hero unit in Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos, where it causes the Far Seer to channel an earthquake in a large area for up to 25 seconds, continuously damaging buildings and significantly slowing units. In World of Warcraft, Earthquake is an Elemental shaman ability which instantly causes an earthquake in a target area for 6 seconds, damaging and sometimes knocking down enemies caught in it.
