It ignores Def and Arm spells on models but does it ignore "area of effect spells" that are not cast on models Deflection or Fox Hole?

Also, does Arcane Assassin ignore spell effects that result in stealth being on a model?

Arcane Assassin ignores any spell effects that adds a to a model's ARM or DEF. The spell doesn't have to be cast on the model it just has to affect the model. Arcane Assassin will not ignore Stealth.

To be more specific:
Arcane Assassin ignores DEF and ARM bonuses which are provided directly by spells. (e.g. Deflection)
It does not ignore indirect boni, like Concealment or Cover. (e.g. Foxhole)
