AoE?[edit source]

Is it an AoE? -- Karol007 (talk) 23:45, 14 August 2015 (UTC)

I don't think so. It's a trigger, just like Knife Juggler or Lorewalker Cho. It's not affecting an area, just waiting to be triggered. Same for all or at least most triggers. -- Taohinton (talk) 19:42, 15 August 2015 (UTC)
Armorsmith has similar text and it's tagged as triggered effect too, so I guess until somebody comes up with a suite of more intuitive names, it's indeed a triggered effect. -- Karol007 (talk) 19:56, 15 August 2015 (UTC)
The triggered part is indeed what this wiki currently labels as a triggered effect. That's not got anything to with whether or not it's an AoE, though. It's not an AoE because it affects individual targets when they activate its trigger, not all minions in an area. Explosive Trap is AoE because of the resulting damage to all minions in the enemy board area; Freezing Trap is not, despite both being triggerable by any minion. By that measure all Secrets would be AoE. -- Taohinton (talk) 20:45, 15 August 2015 (UTC)
