- See also Cards by Attack
Attack is how much damage a card can do. It is represented with a number in a card´s lower left zone, over the attack icon.
Application of Attack
A card´s attack is applied by subtracting it over the objective card´s health. However, if the objective card has armor, the armor´s value must be added to the health when dealing damage. Also remember that when a card with both attack and health (unlike spells), both the attacker and the defender cards exchange damage.
For example, if an Ancient Brewmaster (with 5 attack and 4 health) attacks Gelbin Mekkatorque (with 6 attack and 6 health), The Ancient Brewmaster would deal 5 damage (or attack) to Gelbin Mekkatorque´s 6 health, so the card´s health would now be 1, and the Ancient Brewmaster would be destroyed, by recieving 6 damage over its 4 health when exchanging.
Ancient Brewmaster to Gelbin Mekkatorque: 6 health - 5 attack = 1 health ->Alive
Gelbin Mekkatorque to Ancient Brewmaster: 4 health - 6 attack = -2 health ->Destroyed
