Alexstrasza the Life-Binder
, Aspect of the Red Dragonflight, is the guardian of all life in the world of Azeroth. She is hinted to be the leader and most powerful of the Aspects, as her domain, life, encompasses four to a certain degree.
Alexstrasza, also known as the Dragonqueen and the Great Red Leviathan, is one of the three Great Dragons who fought against the demons during the
War of the Ancients
. Later, she helped create Nordrassil, the World Tree, by placing a magical acorn within the second Well of Eternity. For some time after, she and her fellow red dragons were at peace, but over time they began to argue about how best to shelter and protect the world. The rise to power of humans and other races left many believing that these new peoples were dangerous and should be destroyed, while others of Alexstrasza’s ilk felt they should be educated to teach them right from wrong. When Alexstrasza later disappeared, the red dragonflight began a desperate search for her, only to fall prey to Deathwing’s depredations. Those of the red dragonflight who survived eventually discovered that the orcs had captured their queen and were using her offspring as pawns in the Second War. Outraged, many of the red dragons wanted to make war against all the lesser races, but the rescue of Alexstrasza by
and his allies taught them that perhaps the ground-dwelling mortals could be good after all.
Alexstrasza is supremely confident in her strength and righteousness. She does not seek out combat, but destroys only to punish or renew. In battle, she observes her foes carefully before striking at those she believes are the most deserving of her wrath. Enemies who flee when their leaders are defeated are generally allowed to escape, having learned a lesson they will not soon forget.
She's present in the new expansion Wrath of the Lich King, and leads the
the Wyrmrest Accord
. She's also present in her
in front of the Wrathgate, after the quest
Return to Angrathar
(comment ported from
14M hp. I think no one wanna be her enemy! It is a shame she is not in dragon form.
Bloodelf form? Interesting.
Good thing she and her Consort are in the game.
The one thing i disapprove is the vendetta against Maligos. The blue guy was my favourite dragon.
Dragons tend to assume High elves form when they want to transform into something...smaller. If we can believe the Sunwell comic trilogy, Tyragosa transforms into a high elf, only because they are "most appealing to the eye among the mortal races" or words close to those.
Alexstrasza is very powerful but i doubt that she is stronger than Arthas if she was why hasn't she killed him already
No they dont, only krasus looked liked that.
Krasus was in the form of a High Elf for that entire duration of that trilogy. To the Night Elves, High Elves would look like a skinnier, paler version of themselves eg: Like a Night Elf close to death.
wait wouldnt dragons be cold blooded?
Most likely warm-blooded like the dinosaurs. To be able to fly at all, they'd need warm blood to propel themselves, much less survive in such varying climates. Granted there's magic that changes things too, but warm blood makes sense for large reptiles, the dinosaurs being the prime example.
In In order to reach her from the ground level you need to talk to one of the dragons near the flightpath, and they'll take you up. The Question marks won't appear if you're near the innekeeper or the vendors.
Very clearly modeled after Mink of
I just about died giggling when I first saw her.
If you just want to go see Alexstraza like I did, or you can't find her for a quest, there is an NPC on the West side of Wyrmrest Temple with three Wyrmrest Temple Drakes around him named Tariolstraz. He gives you two options. Option one: Go see Alexstraza with her consort Krasus at the Top of the temple. Option two: Go see Afrasastraz in the mid section of the temple.
I don't think she's wearing any cloth, just plate.....
And is she hot?
Alexstrasza has the same toon model as the newer Lady Sylvanas Windrunner, however she is wearing noticeably less armor (no stockings, hood, shoulders, or weapons), and the dangling accents on Sylvanas' chest armor is absent from Alex's. Alex also has a standard Blood Elf hairstyle and face (Sylvanas does not), though they have been recoloured, and she's wearing a brooch which is also seen on her Dragon form. The horns, are obviously a unique edit, but like Sylvanas the skin is uniquely coloured (her eyes are golden, her hair is an unavailable colour to normal BElfs, and her skin is a ruddy brown, neither are general options for BElf creation, although there is a slightly red or slightly brown skin tone option). It is also worth mentioning that her armor while sharing the purplish tones of Sylvanas', is much warmer with pinker tones and the substitution for gold metal instead of the Banshee Queen's silver.
It was indeed Kalecgos in Magisters' Terrace.
He was a powerful ally in the battle against Kil'jaeden, so my guess would be that he has condemned Malygos and his war.
Almost all dragons take on a High Elf humanoid form. The exceptions are the Black Dragonflight (Humans), and the Bronze Dragonflight (Gnomes)
That may be a High Elf face but there aint no mistakin those human hips. mmmmmmmmmmm
See through lace cape.
Easily the sexiest npc in this game.
Never seen her before in my life
Compare her armor with Sylvanas'? >:O
You can tell who's a chick and whose not on these posts by their opinion on her looks
This is easily the best model in-game.
You can see her dragonform after completing Wrath Gate event. There she gives guest (
) starting chain to Undercity.
Notice how she starts 6 quests and ends 9...
i would tap that.
To all those that say that Alexstrasza and Sylvanas have models with too few clothes, there is a simple and valid reason for it.
They have obviously donated all of their clothes to the war effort against Malygos and the Lich King.
Instead of talking about having sex with a cartoon character, it would be nice if someone could post a comment telling us how to FIND HER. Geeks.
Her eyes burn with a fiery passion...to kill some undead!
and to the post above me, The people talking about having sex with her isn't true, they don't want to have sex with her, the peoples characters do. They are just talking for them.
She looks more like the Felblood Elves than High Elves. Of course I have to admit she looks absolutely ...... ( someone make a word to describe her ).
didn't know that 145 pounds was considered over weight these days, or that a room upstairs a 2-stories house was a basement. I need to read the newspaper more. sorry for wasting space, please down rate if tired of seeing this.
There's not really a terribly good argument for dinosaurs having warm blood yet. Their ability to stay warm in cold climates may have also been due to their very large size. The larger the animal, the higher it's ability to retain heat. Specifically in modern reptiles over 30 kg the rate of heat loss is about equal to that of mammals. This is known as
. Sea turtles are the prime example of this, despite being cold-blooded, their ability to retain heat borders on the efficiency of that of endothermic animals.
The strongest proponent for warm-blooded dinosaurs is a paleontologist named Robert Bakker. Most of what Bakker holds as truth was initially accepted due to peaked interest but has since been generally thrown out by most of the paleontological community. Specifically the major "consensus seems to be that most dinosaurs had neither “reptilian” nor “mammalian” physiology, but something in between - inertial homeothermy."(Phillips, 2008)
Don't even get me started on the specifics on Linnaean classification of dinosaurs as reptiles. Hell, the
grouping of 'reptile' as a category isn't even scientifically accurate since it's paraphyletic. (The only way to make it monophyletic is if we included birds.)
Don't mess with the Bio majors that play this game. It's also fascinating, but I might be a little biased.
Edit: Changed polyphyletic to paraphyletic.
The Notatainable color is due to her being Highelven not Belf :P
Before i heard the Malygos fight dialogue i thought u said it like Alex then stra then z then ia (i used to say the z like the letter) but NOW i know its really called like the last part is za. Blizz should make a voice over for all the quests to help us pronounce it right like the said on PL
She's located at the very top of the tower.
However powerful Arthas is, I don't know if he has enough power to kill the Life-Binder herself. I mean, she controls all life and safeguards it. She is most likely the most powerful being in Azeroth.
Well, since she is the dragon of life, if you tried to flirt with/ hit on her she would probably rip your life from your body and crush and burn your soulless shell of a person before feeding it to her offspring. So, lets just ogle at her from a distance
I am a prisoner of your beauty:
Your crimson eyes,
Your coraline hair,
Your slender waist,
Your voluptuous curves,
Bring warmth to my cheeks
And kindle my heart in bright fla- DID YOU SAY
SIXTY FOUR THOUSAND
...wah. :'( </3
I'll just leave this here...
Um, anyone say something else if I'm wrong, but I don't think Alexstrasza "rips someone to shreds, since she guards life and she avoids killing if possible. And does anybody know how old she is? She seems young, but since she where battling in the War of the Ancients and where on Azeroth when the Titans came, she should probably be like... 130000 years old? since one of the Titans actually blessed her with powers, making her the Life-Binder. But most of you probably already knew that she got her powers from a Titan. =P
way to ruin the face
As of Patch 3.1 She now talks like a BE female.
I wonder why they do not make tier like this, new tiers have no style...
But Arthas desecrated the bodies of dead dragons (--> Frost Wyrm), isn't that a reason good enough for her to attack? + She appears at Angrathar, which had nothing to do with the Blue Dragonflight..
I am very sad what happened to all aspects.
Ysera is sleeping.
Alexstrasza didn't prevent what happened at wrathgate.
I agree. All the aspects are like doing nothing, or sitting there. (Especially Malygos. I mean, he's just being farmed!)
Alexstrasza is my favorite aspect. If they turn her evil, I think I'll go rampant, hunt blizzard down, and force them to change Alexstrasza to good again.
It seems they want more dragon raids. They're killing Malygos, and making a weird plot twist on Nozdormu.
And it almost looks like Neltharion is going to be a damn raid with all the raids they're doing!
Nozdormu is said to be "The Master" of the Infinite Dragonflight.
In 3.1 she was given a female Blood Elf Voice.
Yes, a female Blood Elf, And it kind of hurts my Lore-Loving heart to hear "Glory To the Sin'Dorei" come from that all powerful and perfectly shaped mouth =(
Most of us Lore nerds, wouldnt mind getting dragon voices on the NPCs you know?
Thanks Blizz they did NOT give her tentacles on the face.
Actually, she'll toy with you, AND THEN murderously rip you into bloody pieces, where you will rot on a stick of burning undead, on top of Icecrown, burning and screaming, before the undead frost wyrms fly out to eat you.
Still worth it.
wonder why players can't get transparent cloaks like hers :o
Oddly enough, she possesses the blood elf voice files instead of the night elf/high elf files.
Normally fine and dandy, but...
A red dragon wishing for "Glory to the Sin'dorei"?
The Life-Binder proclaiming "Death to all who oppose us"?
I think someone goofed.
Though you must keep in mind, Alexstraza veiws all life as precious, good, or evil, she is a peackeeper, and dosn't often kill. If she was violent, then she would have decimated arthas's stronghold, or atleast tried too, but since Arthas has not attacked her or her dragons, directly that is, She does not wish to meddle with him.. Yet. Also I know that He has attacked the red dragonshire, but idk bout that part of it =/ either way, alexstraza dosn't like killing, so thayt may be a part of it
I dont know if anyone noticed, but the base bloodelf model also has been slightly altered. Sylvanas and Alex aren't just as skinny as normal elves. Here's a pic to compare:
Ah man... i wish bloodelves had as nice hips... it would be gorgeous! :P
Flame Leviathan in hard mode has more health than Alexstrasza.
TWO TIMES more.
Just what happened? A tank with more health than a dragon that guards all life.
Flame Leviathan in hard mode
I can ride my bike with no handlebars, no handlebars.
Well..She definatly wants it.
Nice. They stuck her with a random female blood elf voice. I mean, it would've been ok if she didn't have their sayings. She even says 'Glory to the Sin'dorei'. Nice going Blizz.
the "roumor" that nozdrmu is the leader of the infinite dragonflight cant be true becouse:
1.he is sending us to kill them
2.why would he? some say to stop his own death but thats not possible cuz if he forsaw his own death, and succeded at stopping it then he never realy died in the future and then how could he forsee it, its a classic paradox
3.if stopping himself from dying is the reason, why would he try to kill arthas in the past or stop the dark portal from opening or thrall escaping from durnholde? why not just go and stop the direct death not the events before it
4.there is no fourth reason xD
My thoughts on if Blizz kills off the Aspects!
Malygos is already gone.
Nozdormu DOES turn out to be the leader of the Infinites and must be killed!
Deathwing comes out of hiding.
Ysera is corrupted by the Nightmare.
Alexstrasza goes insane at the loss of the other Aspects.
Feel free to add your own thoughts!
any1 else noticed she says ''Glory to the Sin'Dorei?'' when clicked?(among other woman belf texts)
try tank her she has 130 million on dragon form lol
Its like a virgin fest in here...
in this new patch Alexstrasza got 2 of the /hello macro voices for her and all the other /bye macro voice of a Female Bloodelf
As of 3.2, she has a new and unique voice!
BEST. PATCH. EVAR
Deathwing only whooped so much ass because he had the Dragon Soul, a weapon created by, in essence, the Old Gods. Once he lost that, he hightailed it away from the Aspects 'cos he knew he was gonna get his ass kicked. And he's still hiding :P Alex is the most powerful Dragon on Azeroth, I think. And probably the hottest! :)
The one boss i can look at and be happy
recently got a new voice bank i see....
If you look closely at her gear it kinda makes sense considering she's a dragon. She has very strange cloak which reminds of wings. Her gloves also have talons and she has the strange horns. The fact that her armour is plate could also be her dragon skin which is meant to be as hard as rock.
She's Hot .
I wonder what happens to her when you wipe on Maylgos...
Alexstraza has nothing to deal with Arthas, but if he went and harmed her, her children, or any of the other Aspects she'd go deal with him herself. because she is the life binder, she does whats within her powers to keep life in all areas. Currently she is dealing with Malygos, for some reason he's gone mad with the arcane magics and he sent his forces to attack his sister. let face it, we would need 40 people to take her down considering she is a Dragon, she been here when the titans came to Azeroth, she can destroy a mortal's very exisstance. plus she is with her consort so 2 raid bosses that have over 10,000k means some real raiding.
There's not really a terribly good argument for dinosaurs having warm blood yet. Their ability to stay warm in cold climates may have also been due to their very large size. The larger the animal, the higher it's ability to retain heat. Specifically in modern reptiles over 30 kg the rate of heat loss is about equal to that of mammals. This is known as gigantothermy. Sea turtles are the prime example of this, despite being cold-blooded, their ability to retain heat borders on the efficiency of that of endothermic animals.
And best yet the actual lecture notes from my herp class in Spring 2008:
In the notes my professor explains that the strongest proponent for warm-blooded dinosaurs is a guy named Robert Bakker and he goes on to list Bakker's case for a warm-blooded dinosaur. (The notes are sort of lacking in text since my teacher was big on giving us mostly spoken info due to ppl skipping.) My professor explained that most of what Bakker holds as truth was initially accepted due to peaked interest but has since been generally thrown out by most of the paleontological community. Specifically the major "consensus seems to be that most dinosaurs had neither “reptilian” nor “mammalian” physiology, but something in between - inertial homeothermy."(Phillips 2008) Inertial homeothermy is another way of saying gigantothermy.
Don't even get me started on the specifics on Linnaean classification of dinosaurs as reptiles, that is a gray area I'd rather not venture into since it involves a times when phylogenetic trees were just beginning to bud. Hell, the modern grouping of 'reptile' as a category isn't even scientifically accurate since it's paraphyletic. (The only way to make it monophyletic is if we included birds!)
Don't mess with the Bio majors that play this game. Had to learn waaay more of this than I cared to in my herpetology course. ;) It's also fascinating, but I might be a little biased.
Edit: Changed polyphyletic to paraphyletic.
Like most people say...
" I'd mana tap that. "
Damn you blizzard for taking out the most useful skill in the game. >=O
Look at her!
sylvanus wears the same bikini plate, cept different colors
Please nerf Alextraszas "Cleave".... its really to op...
Alexstraza shows compassion to all races of the world. She sometimes turns herself into a rabbit or something to observe the behavior of the mortals before showing her true form to reward or punish the person.
Think twice before attacking that critter.
Am I the only one who thinks of Dat Ass-.....PECT! when visiting to the Temple? :F
Edit: I don't know bout you guys but I'll make her Asspect red ;p
BEST SCREENSHOT OF ALEXSTRASZA EVER (nr. 6)!
I would just like to point out that she isn't really the "Queen of Dragons" as her title claims. Although she is the most prominent in game, she is on equal terms with the other Aspects.
USE YOUR POWER ALEXSTRAZA!
Also, she dosen't seem to be able to take on the blue drakes, why? she should have MORE power than the Azure Dragonflight, not less. maybe she has it all in the palms of her hands, but she just wants peace, even though it's impossible unless you fight back.
Ok IDK the story with the green and bronze aspect, but with Malygos dead, and Deathwing most likely going down after Cataclysm eventually in the far future is she going to be the very last aspect? Because after they die the aspects are no replaced, right?
Gady Laga moar like. If you know what I mean. Or her alias, Lady Deathwhisper.
Well, it has been over a year now... WHEN IS THE FIRST ANIME **** VIDEO GONNA BE RELEASED?
I would say this to her if I met her IRL. "I wanna say something. I'm gonna put it out there; if you like it, you can take it, if you don't, send it right back... I want to be on you."
I've noticed Krasus has a good position... just behind her.
Hope she ever dies, it would be great for the Titans and the Watchers, who wanted to renew Azeroth. As for the things she says, many NPCs say things they shouldn't, like many Argent Crusade Humans say "For the Alliance" (and I'm not talking about those who have the Dailies), or the Silver Covenant's Guards and Agents are High Elfish. I mean, haven't all High Elves became Blood Elves and Horde?
Could you imagine the stress with that job?
She's gunna need a loooooooooooong bath when LK dies. Just tips her foot in, the Deathwing turns up like a phyco-ex boyfriend. If someone deserves a holiday....
SHE IS HAWT !
I'm surprised nobody has posted this:
She must spends so much time decorating her horns every morning.
It appears that
Found my epic mount. And I wouldn't mind having the dragon form either
Does Wow still have armor similar to that for players/ i know back in vanilla Wow Iused to see stuff SIMILAR not exactly.. but similar. Id love to get some for my female draeni :P hehehehe
I came here the learn some lore about her and I wont be sleeping tonight from being disurbed
Alextraza's role in cataclysm: After you kill the old god in the Maw of Madness in Twilight Highlands, you get called out by a messenger of your faction to help out the red flight in taking out some pesky twilight drakes. You get introduced to the major players of the Red dragons: Baleflame, a dragonkin who appears to be a commander or something similar, an old dragon named Caelstraz who you may remember as the night elf from AQ40, and a drake in elven guise that hates your guts named Lirastaza. After securing their trust by pushing back the Twilight drakes and cultists, you see Alex challenge Deathwing to a fight. He comes, showing he has fallen farther than ever before "Behold the power bestowed apon me by this worlds TRUE MASTERS!" (he temporarily has Old God tentacles coming out his back). They face eachother in midair combat while you and the reds fend off more Twilight drakes. Both eventually fall to the ground, but Alex has lost while Deathwing appears to be stronger than ever, fire spouting from his body like never before. While you carry the wounded dragon queen away (shes in her mortal form), Calen stays behind to slow Deathwing down. He apparently survived and helps you against Sintharia in the Bastion of Twilight heroic-mode. Afterward, she makes the difficult decision of ordering a genocide of the Black dragons, for if they are not stopped, all Azeroth will die, Deathwing's cursed flight must fall for the greater good.
She is, however, apparently intersted in restarting the black dragonflight from scratch, evidenced by the quests in Badlands involving the dragon named Rhea/Rehastraza using Titan-technologies to purify the taint of the Old Gods from black dragon eggs.
Isn't it something that she almost looks like Lady Sylvanas?
i wonder what pants she is using
She's also a dragon :D
(293 – 3·5) on 2009/09/12 (Patch 3.2.0)
it's true, kalecgos transformed into a human, nefarion, onyxia, AND deathwing all took on human forms, so it's definitly not just high elves that are portrayed
: They mostly turn into Night Elves (There my favorites)
: Mostly into High Elves.
: They too turn into High Elves mostly, except for Chromie.
: They turn into Humans, Nefarian, Onixia(Katrana Prestor), Neltharion aka Deathwing...
: High Elf and Humans

So... all this talk about she's "hot" and if dragon a "warm" or "cold" blooded... but no one talks about the cloth she wears.
I would really want this cloth to wear on one of my chars. Does anyone know what she have on her, and if it is something I could go farm/create my self :)
I would be very happy for ANY pieces of cloth... :P
RP for the WIN ;)
With the information about the new Cata expansion, it can be safely said that Deathwing is by leaps and bounds the most powerful being in Azeroth.
The old gods are CONTROLLING him, and as much as I love Dragon Aspects there is an 'Aspect Killer' wich i cant remember his name, i think it was Chromatus or something like that, apparently the dragon's powers have no effect on them at all.
Roo's make-a-wish on
She is on the top floor
The Dragon Aspects:
the Timeless One
the Dreamer (former); the Awakened (present).
the Spell-Weaver (former);
the Steward of Magic (present)
the Earth Warder (former); Deathwing the Destroyer (recent)
So I'm not 100% sure what is up, but for some reason I cannot find her as of Legion 7.1.5, she is not residing up at her usual spot in Wyrmrest temple, for me it's just her consort Krasus standing there with the other dragonflight emissary's. On top of that, I can't even find any mention of her disappearance anywhere, despite now having 3 quests in my alts log that need to be turned into her.
