Text[edit | edit source]
Action[edit | edit source]
Wearer is the Ruler of Armello and never Retreats from Battle.
Flavor[edit | edit source]
From the golds of The Four, a new crown formed on Wyld's trunk, for a new king, a new age.
- —THE CORONATION
Availability[edit | edit source]
Being both a Royal Card and a King's Treasure Card, Crown of Armello is available only to the King in terms of Equipment. As such, it cannot be drawn from the three main decks, won in Quests, or obtained through Dungeon exploration.
Behavior[edit | edit source]
Besides being special in its unobtainability, the Crown of Armello has no profound effect on gameplay itself. It acts as it should, carrying out its Action appropriately when needed and acting similarly to almost every other equippable card.
The Crown of Armello bears an interesting Steam Achievement: The Fresh Prince, in which the hero must steal the King's crown using the Mirror Cape and use it against him in Battle (it has no combative effect). This achievement can be a bit difficult, as getting the Mirror Cape in the first place is most likely the hardest part.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Crown of Armello is one of ten cards that cannot be drawn from the three decks or won in regular Quests, the other nine being: Wyldhide, Pride's Edge, The Unseen Death, Mother's Maze, Fool's Fountain, The Tricking Paths, Moon Scythe, Raven's Beak Dagger, and The Stranger.
- Although it briefly appears with the King's other equipped items on the Combat screen, the Crown of Armello does not effect battles in any way.
- The Crown in the artwork is entangled by sickly black vines, signifying the Rot's invasion.
- Crown of Armello and its sister treasures were not part of Armello until v0.3.5 ("Pride's Fall"), when the King was also granted his Hero Power.
