Notes

  • 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. Before Patch 9.0.0.20457, this damage was counted as damage dealt by the Mistress of Pain herself, causing the effect to trigger again and again, until the controlling hero was killed. This was not considered a bug.[2] More precisely, the infinite loop would stop once the hero has been in negative Health following three consecutive triggers or after 61 triggers, whichever happened first.[3][4]
    • With the introduction of Lifesteal as a named mechanic in Patch 9.0.0.20457, this interaction was changed. Mistress of Pain, or in fact any card with Lifesteal, will now damage the controlling hero only once.

Strategy

While this card has very low Attack, as a Demon it can be buffed with cards like Demonheart to increase its attack, giving Warlocks a marginal source of healing.

As a 1-Attack minion, it combos well with Hobgoblin.

Lightwarden can receive buffs from the healing generated.

Quotes

Summon
I can ease your pain.

Lore

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

  • 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.[5]
  • The artwork for this card comes from the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game "Wrathgate" series, for the card Lynxia.

Voice

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