Armorsmith is a rare warrior minion card, from the Classic set. Its ability grants the controlling hero 1 Armor each time a friendly minion takes damage.

How to get[edit | edit source]

Armorsmith can be obtained through Classic card packs, through crafting, or as an Arena reward.

Card Crafting cost Disenchanting
Armorsmith 100 20
Golden Armorsmith 800 100

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Armorsmith grants 1 Armor each time a friendly minion takes damage. This includes damage which kills a minion, and damage taken by the Armorsmith herself (including fatal blows). Damage that removes Divine Shield on friendly minions will not trigger the Armorsmith's effect.
  • Note that 1 Armor is granted each time a friendly minion takes damage; the Armorsmith can provide a substantial upside to effects like Avenging Wrath.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

This minion is very well suited to a defensive warrior deck. By using this minion alongside other minions that have a combination of high Health and Taunt, it allows the warrior to stack large amounts of Armor, which combines extremely well with Shield Slam.

The Armorsmith is a powerful card capable of contributing large amounts of Armor to the summoning hero. For this reason opponents will almost always want to remove her as quickly as possible. Summoning warriors should do their best to protect their Armorsmiths.

It goes without saying that having an Armorsmith in play greatly rewards the warrior for creating as much carnage as possible, making cards like Whirlwind a lot more desirable.

In control decks, this minion can be very powerful, granting Armor while being able to take out most 1-Health minions without dying itself.

If used effectively, Armorsmith can help counter aggro decks.

If your opponent plays a Grim Patron warrior deck, at some point he will likely use a Whirlwind or two to summon more Patrons. If you have an Armorsmith and a few sticky Taunts on the board, the Armor accumulated together with the Taunts will help cushion the damage from charging Grim Patrons.
