With the arrival of Whispers of the Old Gods and game formats, the wiki has switched over to Standard format.
The preferred format for new and advanced players alike, most card lists will from now on only show cards valid in Standard format, making it easier for readers to find the information they're looking for.
For those interested in Wild format, Wild listings can now be found on subpages, such as Deathrattle/Wild format, linked just above main card listings, and Wild strategy and tips are still featured in our articles.
Whenever a friendly minion takes damage, gain 1 Armor.
She accepts guild funds for repairs!
How to get[edit | edit source]
Armorsmith can be obtained through Classic card packs, through crafting, or as an Arena reward. Golden Armorsmith can also be obtained through the Highest Rank Bonus chest at the end of each Ranked season.
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. Armorsmith can serve as deterrent to this play, or provide some compensation by generating a good amount of Armor for you in the process.
