Secret: When your hero is attacked, gain 8 Armor.
This is Rank 1. Rank 2 is Chocolate Milk Barrier.
Ragnaros his nuke doesn't trigger it...
ice and armor is kinda weird
This is just WRONG!!! Just lost a game because of a that. Damn hunter.
Blizzard MUST fix this!!!
I noticed that this doesn't trigger in many circumstances. Enemy players spells don't trigger (like fireball or frost shock). Enemy hero attacks don't trigger this either. Other secrets like counter spell (if i cast pyroblast at the other mage and they have counter spell, it doesn't trigger ice barrier when i'm hit). also minion battlecry's like nightshade battlecry 3 damage to enemy hero. seems only direct attack from minions triggers this.
Most of that is how it should be.
"As soon as your hero is attacked, gain 8 Armor."
However, enemy hero attacks should trigger it.
Enemy hero's attack will trigger it, such as a rogue's dagger.
Hero Power: Steady Shot won't trigger that. So if you could eliminate both other secrets, you may not attack and finish with hero power and maybe defeat minions first. I guess other Hero Powers like Fireball won't trigger it, neither.
I guess it's a bug, current version: 126.96.36.19943
Side note, the armor is permanent. I thought it was temporary for the attack that triggered it at first, its permanent.
good point, but it usually says when it was only one turn, like "this turn".
