'''Minor Shock''' is an elemental [[bolt]] spell that enables the caster to send an electrical charge from the palm of the hand toward a designated target. The [[Attack Strength]] for this spell is primarily a function of the caster's [[Spell Aiming]] skill and [[dexterity]] bonus, although other spells, such as [[Elemental Focus (513)]] and [[Elemental Targeting (425)]], can add significantly to its effectiveness. Successful attacks will cause the target to sustain [[hitpoint]] damage and possibly [[Lightning critical table|lightning]] based [[critical]] injuries.
Although not very powerful, this spell is used extensively by young wizards, because it is an easy spell to learn and cast, and the [[mana]] requirements are low. This spell can also typically be found in [[Silver wand|silver]] and [[Iron wand|iron]] [[wand]]s dropped as treasure items from creatures or available for purchase from certain shops within each town. It can be imbedded into appropriate items by skilled wizards who have knowledge of the [[Magic Item Creation (420)]] spell. Iron wands containing minor shock can also be created by properly trained [[Alchemy|alchemists]].
==Lores and Increased Damage==
Training in either [[Elemental Lore, Water]] and/or [[Elemental Lore, Air]] will increase the spell's [[damage factor]]s. The increase is .001 per two ranks for the first 100 ranks and .001 per four ranks for ranks 101 to 200. There is no requirement to train in both lores (as previously thought) to increase the damage factors for this spell. Total lore bonus with 200 ranks (300 skill) is .075.
