"I was once a farstrider. I swore an oath to defend Silvermoon and its people to my dying breath. It was not enough. My homeland still burned. But those days are long past. And history will not repeat itself. I am Sylvanas Windrunner, Queen of the Forsaken. And if you will not serve me in this life...then you will do so in the next."

Development Edit

Sylvanas SC2 DevRend1

Sylvanas's "good" (left) and "evil" (right) forms

Sylvanas was conceived within the first two years of the game's development.[4] She appeared as a hero in early builds. She had powerful ranged attacks and was deadly, easy to kill. She benefited from dexterity items.[2] She was a powerful mid to late game hero.[1]

As with the rest of the characters at the time, Sylvanas had a "good" and "evil" form—in her case, corresponding to her living and undead forms respectively.[1]

Her abilities and stats were as follows:

  • Stats
    • Life: 1
    • Attack: 5.25
    • Abilities: 6
    • Speed: 3.75
  • Abilities
    • Trueshot Aura
    • Wild Arrow
    • Frost Arrow
    • Silence
    • Freezing Trap
    • Multishot[2]

Sylvanas has proven difficult to balance in regards to battleground design, given her ability to disable towers.[5]
