Do fireball/ lightningbolt attack spells ignore armor?

Are there attacks or cards in the game that allow attacks that ignore armor?

Thx

No and no.

Every time you roll dice you have a chance to roll critical damage which ignores armor.

The +x piercing trait reduces armor on a 1 for 1 basis.

There are some (very few, literally - like one or two) attacks that ignore armor. They are attacks that carry the "critical damage" keyword. It is my understanding that attacks with this trait deal critical damage, therefore bypassing all armor, regardless of the die showing a non-critical hit (1 or 2 without the starburst).

One such attack is performed by the Psylock creature (FM/WL expansion), and another is a damage barrier on a piece of Warlock equipment if I am not mistaken. However, the rub is that these attacks roll a VERY small amount of die. All other attacks, as mentioned above, adjust for armor.

May the rolls be with you...

Anything that does "Direct Damage" ignores armor.

Bye
