Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Lynessa’s Battlecry is limited to 30 cards and casts the buffs in a random order.[1][2]
  • Adaptation spells cast on Lynessa chooses a random adaptation instead of the original adaptation.[3]
  • The spells cast on her do not count towards the Paladin Quest, The Last Kaleidosaur.[4]
  • Spells that were copied with Djinni of Zephyrs will not be cast on Lynessa.
  • Spells that place a Deathrattle enchantment on Lynessa such as Spikeridged Steed will not trigger if she is played while Spiritsinger Umbra is in play.[3]
  • Lynessa can kill herself with Sacrificial Pact, despite being an illegal target for the spell. This may be intended. [5]
  • Lynessa will cast Dire Frenzy on herself, despite being an illegal target for the spell.
  • Lynessa will summon additional minions with Silvermoon Portal.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Lynessa Sunsorrow is a late game oriented card. She will replay all spells used on ally minions, by a maximum of 30 casts per Battlecry.

If you are running a Deck with Lynessa, consider putting some cards like: The Last Kaleidosaur, Shirvallah, the Tiger, Lady Liadrin, Arcane Giant, Devout Pupil, The Voraxx, Dragonkin Sorcerer, Djinni of Zephyrs, Immortal Prelate and any other spell-buff related.

Remind that, Lynessa will not cast a replayed version, like the ones used by The Voraxx.

If you are running a deck with less spells, she can be played early, but less powerful. But even with a few buffs, she can become really powerful. Two Blessing of Kings and two Hand of A'dal are good enough, summoning a 7 cost 13/13.

She will cast her spells at a random order, so, Dark Conviction or Dinosize are dangerous options, potentialy replacing all her extra stats by a fixed value.

If obtained by Prismatic Lens, Lynessa can become an early strong minion, since most of the time, you will be playing a 5/5 1 cost card. But considering the risks, it is better to save her for the late game, except if you have a Getaway Kodo.

Never use Duel! when she is not in your hand. The risk is far from dangerous.

Since her power lies in her Battlecry, Brann Bronzebeard will double her potential. Every Lynessa's Battlecry is limited to 30 casts. So playing Brann will double her range to 60 casts.

Interactions[edit | edit source]

Lynessa will cast every spell at random order, to a maximum of 30 spells; so, even when getting high stats, the triggering part will always change and the cast order will be ignored. But, one thing that is guaranteed is that she will cast one spell by each single cast. So if you manage to play 4 repeated spells on your minions, when summoned, she will replay all 4 casts.

She can not reactivate Secrets, buffs from Weapons or minions.

Neutral Spells like Lantern of Power or Nightmare are applied normally.

Her Battlecry creates unique effects. Below here, will be a small list of interactions with her:

  • Normal Casts - Spells that will be cast normally, without involving or ignoring special conditions

Blessing of Wisdom, Blessing of Might, Divine Strength, Sand Breath, Lightforged Blessing, Dark Conviction,Flash of Light, Hand of A'dal, Potion of Heroism, Desperate Stand, Gift of Luminance, Seal of Champions, Blessing of Kings, Silvermoon Portal, Blessing of Authority, Blessed Champion, Pharaoh's Blessing, Spikeridged Steed, Lay on Hands, Dinosize, Libram of Hope.

  • Special Casts - Spells that have unique effects when used by her Battlecry

Adaptation: Lynessa will adapt randomly. She can cast the same option twice.

Shield of Honor: She gains both of the buffs without being Damaged.

Sound the Bells!: The first bell and the Echo bells will be re-cast.

Libram of Wisdom: All casts will be considered unique spells for her Battlecry, in other words, she will retain every single one of the Librams that were used, along with the Deathrattle.

  • Unusual Spells - Other class spells that will be applied to Lynessa (Obtained through Grimestreet Informant) This list can be a lot bigger, since there are multiple ways of getting another class spells, but this are unusual spells, that can be easily obtained.

Inner Rage: Activates normaly

Rampage: Works the same way as Shield of Honor

Rocket Boots: Activates normaly

Bestial Wrath: Gives her Immunity, despite not being able to use it under normal situations

Summon
This dungeon reeks of magic. Delightful.
Attack
The Light is mine!

Lore[edit | edit source]

Lynessa is unique to Hearthstone. She is a former Blood Knight who left the order, disgusted, after they stopped draining power from the naaru, as she felt that the elves had grown weak and that drawing from the Sunwell couldn't give her the power she truly sought. Now starving for magic, she has ventured to the catacombs, a repository of ancient energy. As she explores, she drains the magic from the air, feasting for the first time since she left Silvermoon City.[6]

She shares her last name with Ambassador Sunsorrow, the blood elven ambassador to the Forsaken of the Undercity, but it's unknown if the two are related.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Lynessa Sunsorrow's entrance music is taken from Ghostlands.
