Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Whenever this minion deals damage, it will restore the exact same amount of Health to its controlling hero too.
  • If Betrayal is cast upon Mistress of Pain, her triggered effect will activate once for each minion hit.[1]
  • As with all healing effects, if combined with Auchenai Soulpriest or Embrace the Shadow Mistress of Pain will instead deal damage to the controlling hero. However, since this damage is counted as damage dealt by the Mistress of Pain herself, the effect will trigger again and again, until the controlling hero is killed (this is not a bug).[2] More precisely, the infinite loop will stop once the hero has been in negative Health following three consecutive triggers or after 61 triggers, whichever happens first.[3][4]

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Use cards like Hobgoblin, Demonheart, etc. to buff this minion.

Lightwarden can receive buffs from the healing generated.

As stated above, priests should never play or otherwise place themselves in possession of a Mistress of Pain at the same time as an Auchenai Soulpriest, because of the high likelihood of instant defeat. If the opponent does have these two minions simultaneously, simply attack the Mistress using any character (without Immune or Divine Shield) in order to instantly destroy the player.

The most common sources of Mistress of Pain for the priest are Piloted Shredder and mind control effects, such as using a Cabal Shadow Priest to steal a Mistress. While players can learn not to steal Mistresses, spawns from Piloted Shredder cannot be prevented, making having both a Shredder and a Soulpriest on the priest's board at once a risky situation, which will potentially grant victory to the opponent. As of the release of League of Explorers, Piloted Shredder has a 1.14% chance of summoning a Mistress of Pain.[5]

Quotes[edit | edit source]

I can ease your pain.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Though this card depicts a succubus, Mistresses of Pain in World of Warcraft are actually shivarra.

From Wowpedia:

Mistress of Pain is an elite shivarra mistress faithfully under the command of Lord Jaraxxus, appearing in the Trial of the Crusader raid. They enter the coliseum from nether portals Jaraxxus summons.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • When used in combination with an Auchenai Soulpriest, this minion was specifically designed to take the player's Health to at least -3 before stopping, in order to prevent a simultaneously triggered healing effect from activating and saving the player from death.[6]
  • The artwork for this card comes from the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game "Wrathgate" series, for the card Lynxia.

Voice[edit | edit source]

Mistress of Pain was voiced by Misty Lee, who also voiced Lady Liadrin, Darkshire Alchemist and Grand Widow Faerlina.
