ArtifactDB Build Status

The purpose of this repository is to provide easy access to assets and information about cards for developers creating websites/tools for the game Artifact by Valve. Hopefully with enough people contributing we can fill out every card and keep it updated to track balance changes. (Valve owns all art assets)

Currently there is all the known cards with art available for use, with a JSON manifest that can easily be integrated into your website/tool. If you spot something missing or wrong make a pull request!


npm i artifactdb

Or download the zip via Github.

JSON schema

I have tried to future proof the schema of the JSON manifest of changes by including expansion "Sets". Creep/Improvements/Items cards can have multiple abilities incase some point in the future they do. Null values are ignored and not included in the manifest to save space.

Set Schema

  • Name : string : Name of the card set.
  • Count : int : Number of cards in the set.
  • ReleaseDate : DateTime : Date of release for the set
  • Cards : array : Array of cards within this set. (Look below for cards).

Card Schema

  • Id : Id of the card used for matching it with signature/related cards. Currently the Id is just a random number as we don't know the card collection number.
  • RelatedIds : array : IDs of related cards such as signature spells and tokens.
  • Name : string : Card name
  • CardType : string : Hero/Creep/Improvement/Spell/Item
  • ItemType : string : Consumable/Weapon/Armor/Accessory
  • Color : string : Black/Blue/Green/Red/Yellow
  • Rarity : string : Basic/Common/Uncommon/Rare

  • Attack : int : Attack
  • Armor : int : Armor
  • Health : int : Health
  • SignatureCard : int : The id of the card that is this card's signature card.
  • IsSignatureCard : boolean : If true this card is a signature card for a hero. Use the RelatedIds to get the hero.
  • Charges : int : How many charges a card has for its effect.
  • GoldCost : int : Cost of buying an item.
  • Abilities : array : An array of all abilities/effects for the Hero/Creep/Improvement/Item card. For creeps and improvements their Text has been parsed into an ability so it is easier to search for abilities.
    • Name : string : Name of the ability. For improvements/creeps the ability will be the name of the card + " : Effect" e.g. Keenfolk Turret : Effect.
    • Type : string : Active/Continuous/Play/Death
    • Text : string : The description of the effect. For improvement/creep/item abilities it will remove the prefix e.g. "Active 1: Do something." will become "Do something.".

Card Art

Card art is available in the folder assets/. Each card object in the manifest has a fileName property this will be the name of the assets relating to that card.

Not all card art has been made available but the ones that have are in the folder /assets/artwork/. There is small and large art work available. The small versions are perfect for list icons.
