    Alexstrasza - Ranged Support - Warcraft Hero


    Background

    Alexstrasza the Life-Binder, former Aspect of the red dragonflight, 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.

    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.

    According to 4chan leaks, she's supposed to be a multiclass assassin/healer type.

    Alexstrasza will be my next HotS purchase. I've been waiting for a character like her for a long time.

    Don't link 4chan BS please. That site is a cesspool of unsubstantiated rumors perpetuated by attention hungry narcissists.

    Not unlike MMOC. But at least the mods here *occasionally* do their jobs :-P

    I'm more surprised she can wear pants after all these years she didn't. XD

    Yes... that was the first thing i noticed of her model. <.<
    Here was a level 85 Enhancement Shaman. Now there is just an epitaph.

    Her trait looks cool, pretty similar to Rag so i'm guessing it'll have 90+ seconds CD aswell. She looks interesting enough, can't wait for her full talents etc.

    She looks good and a fun hero will definitly be saving all my shards and gold to get her and skins the moment she is out.

    Yeah, I don't like this, she also looks thicker as well.

    I'm okay with the model. Her face looks a bit off though, what's with this game and faces?

    Probably has to do with the nature of the game. How often are you looking at their faces ingame? It's a good place to save some polygons.

    Fair point, but they often stare right at you when you're at QM screen or something.

    Most talents added to the OP. There are still a couple of names and descriptions missing but I'll keep my eye out for them.

    Looks sweet, R1 looks fairly weak though.

    Flames of Fury sounds amazing, Burdened Flourish and Circle of Life sounds sick too, especially with the globe changes coming up, already liking her a lot more than Ana.

    I'm so happy that they are adding her into the game. I have long saved 15k gold hoping that they would announce her and it happened!

    Cleansing Flame lets you aim where you want to land again. So it's a damaging, healing, invulnerability, mobility heroic

    I wonder because she got three skins, while Hanzo only two. Mastery skins are coming back?
    Whatever...
