Alexstrasza's Battlecry:

  • Directly alters the target hero's Health. As such it does not count as either a healing effect or damaging effect, and so does not synergise with effects such as  Eye for an Eye or  Auchenai Soulpriest.
  • Bypasses any Armor. Any Armor possessed by the target hero will remain unaffected.
  • If the Battlecry increases the hero's Health beyond its current maximum, it will set the hero's new maximum Health to 15. This means that is can be used on the Ragnaros hero summoned by  Majordomo Executus to increase its maximum Health from 8 to 15.[1]
  • Immune and Stealthed heroes cannot be targeted by an opponent's Alexstrasza's Battlecry.

Alexstrasza the Life-Binder, Leader and Aspect of the red dragonflight One of the five Dragon Aspects and Aspect of Life, is the guardian of all life in the world of Azeroth. She was one of five great dragons chosen by the titans to be empowered with a portion of the Pantheon's power and rule over her flight while they watched over Azeroth and its inhabitants. The titans also appointed her queen of all dragons. Alexstrasza loves all living creatures and protects them, and only those who menace the dragonflights or the world face her wrath.
With the rise of  Deathwing during World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, Alexstrasza took a very active role in defending Azeroth against the Aspect of Death, eventually ordering her entire dragonflight to war against the Black Dragonflight. Alexstrasza, along with her fellow Aspects, gave their all to stop Deathwing once and for all, but lost much of their power in the process.
"Life is my Aspect, Dark One, and I, like all mothers, know both the pain and wonders that entails!"

Alexstrasza reappears in Descent of Dragons as  Dragonqueen Alexstrasza.


  • The artwork for this card comes from the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game "Battle of the Aspects Chaos Heroes" series, for the card Alexstrasza the Life-Binder.
  • Alexstrasza is very strong against Heroic Mode bosses in the Curse of Naxxramas adventure, because Curse of Naxxramas heroic bosses are harder, in part, because they have a large amount of extra Health, which Alexstrasza can ignore with her ability and set them all the way down to 15. Because of this, she has been prohibited in the Heroic Mode fight with  Loatheb,  Sapphiron and  Kel'Thuzad. Likely for the same reason, Heroic bosses in the subsequent Blackrock Mountain adventure have extra Armor instead of extra Health, and many of them have cards that grant Armor, such as  Flameheart.
