Physical, Spell and All Armor

Armor is a numerical representation of a given Hero's ability to mitigate damage. Each point of Armor is equal to a 1% reduction in damage. Specific types of Armor exist; Physical Armor works against Basic Attacks, whereas Spell Armor works against Ability-based damage Spell damage. Damage that is based on a percent of a given Hero's Health cannot be mitigated by any form of Armor. This means that Giant Killer (+1.5% Max health damage per attack) will do full damage to the target regardless of their current Armor state.

Armor buff and debuff indicators are next to Hero healthbars.

How Armor works[edit | edit source]

Armor is split into three types: Armor, Physical Armor, and Spell Armor:

  • Armor by itself means that you gain mitigation from both Physical and Spell damage.
  • Physical and Spell Armor mitigate damage from their respective key words.
    • All Abilities deal Spell damage; floating damage text will display Spell Damage as purple numbers above the target’s head
    • All Basic Attacks deal Physical damage; floating damage text will display Physical Damage as orange

Interaction with other Armor effects[edit | edit source]

Generally, Armor effects of the same Armor type do not stack. Only the highest positive and highest negative Armor effect of a type are applied at a time, and the total Armor is calculated as the difference of the two (see Example 1).[1] Physical and Spell Armor from all-Armor effects are treated separately (see Example 2). Some Armor effects may stack additionally with itself, such as Hanzo's Sharpened Arrowheads, but only if it is specified in the ability's or talent's description.

The cap on maximum positive or negative Armor is 75. There are not many effects that are affected by these limits, Garrosh's talent Double Up being one of the few. While negative Armor effects can go all the way to -75, most effects do not reduce the enemy's Armor by more than -25, which was the previous lower boundary.[2] Unravelling Talent on Chromie and Sgt. Hammer’s Shrapnel Mines are talents that can go below the aforementioned -25 Armor.

Example 1

Greymane in Worgen Form (+10 Armor) gains Safeguard (+30 Armor) from Lt. Morales, while affected by Kel'Thuzad's Chains of Kel'Thuzad (-10 Armor) and Tyrande's Hunter's Mark (-15 Armor) debuffs:

  • Worgen Form Armor (+10) is ignored while the higher positive Armor effect, Safeguard (+30), is active.
  • Chains of Kelthuzad Armor reduction (-10) is ignored while the higher negative Armor effect, Hunter's Mark (-15), is active.
  • In total, Greymane has +15 Armor, as the difference of highest positive (+30) and highest negative (-15) Armor effects

Example 2

Brightwing casts Pixie Dust on Sonya, granting +25 Spell Armor, but Sonya already has 65 Physical Armor from Tough As Nails and activates Ignore Pain to gain 60 Armor:

  • +60 Armor from Ignore Pain is split into +60 Physical Armor and +60 Spell Armor.
  • +60 Physical Armor from Ignore Pain is ignored, while higher Armor effect, Tough As Nails (+65 Physical Armor), is active.
  • Pixie Dust (+25 Spell Armor) is ignored, while Higher Armor effect, Ignore Pain (+60 Spell Armor), is active.
  • In total, Sonya has +65 Physical Armor and +60 Spell Armor
