    -7 armour. The minimum armour a hero can have is -20. The amount reduced by skills is only limitted by this cap, and if a hero has 1000 armour you'd be able to stack all armour reduction abilities. Otherwise Weave etc. wouldn't have much point

      Why do you presume it is not? It certainly is a burden, what is your definition of significant?

        And you Slardar amp him (-20 armor) and he hits him with a desolator (-6), puts medallion on him (-6) and Slardar has an AC (-5), total -37 armor.
        Will Dragon Knight have 10 armor or will he have -7 armor?
        He'll have -7 armor.

        Armor can go up to -64 in dota 2 (if im not mistaken). IF negative armor amount goes beyond -20, for damage calculations purposes it'll be -20 as max value.
