100% chance of activation upon successful strike
|Top 3 Rulesets||Bottom 3 Rulesets|
|Aim True - Be sure that your attacks will always hit their targets with aim true. Shatter your opponent's armor on the first attempt!||Unprotected - all armor is removed from this ruleset. Consider whether your monster with shatter is still a good fit.|
|Armored Up - Shatter your opponents armor and attack their health stat directly - sooner than you would otherwise.||Return Fire - Weigh whether the potential to shatter an opponent's armor is worth the trade-off of return fire damage.|
|Weak Magic - Your opponent may believe that extra armor will extend their lives as magic must hit armor before hitting health. Shatter their illusion!||Back to Basics - monsters lose all abilities. Consider whether a monster with Shatter is the best choice despite loss of this ability. Review strength of attack, position, and speed.|

|Reach - Reach grants melee monsters the ability to attack from the second position. Shatter your opponent's armor leaving their direct health stat open.||Rust - Reduces the Armor of all enemy Monsters. If you are already using a monster with Shatter, consider whether it makes sense to add a monster with rust.|
|Blast - make the most use of your enemies reduced armor by inflicting damage on multiple enemies with blast.||Piercing - Consider whether including a Piercing monster in addition to one with Shatter is the best us of your mana.|
