Notes
  • Positive armor aura fully stacks with positive armor auras from other items. Does not stack with other Assault Cuirasses.
  • Negative aura debuff is not displayed on enemy if the carrier is not visible to them.

Strategy[edit]

Assault Cuirass provides your entire team with an armor and attack speed aura, as well as giving a negative armor aura to enemies.

Aggressive use[edit]

The armor debuff works against heroes and buildings, allowing your team to take down towers and heroes easier.

Defensive use[edit]

AC provides your entire team with an armor aura.

Notable heroes[edit]

  • Doom: Provides much needed armor and good attack speed if you are building him to be a DPS carry.
  • Lone Druid: Gives hero and bear increased attack speed for greater chance of entangles, as well as destroying towers faster and doing more damage to heroes.
  • Lycan: Gives increased pushing power and allows you to take down enemy heroes easier while chasing.
  • Tiny: Combined with an Aghanim's Scepter, it gives Tiny incredible right click power, and increases his pushing ability.

Synergy with other items[edit]

AC stacks with the armor loss effect of Desolator on both buildings and heroes, allowing for easier hero kills, increased damage against towers and Roshan, and the obvious synergy of increased attack speed and higher damage output (+60 from deso).
