World of Warcraft

WoW Icon update.png This section concerns content related to the original World of Warcraft.

Balinda is a rival of Captain Galvangar, although unlike her counterpart, she is a caster boss.

If Balinda is left alive throughout the battle, she can urge the Alliance players with battle cries, giving them the 'Stormpike's Salvation' buff, increasing all friendly player hitpoints by 20% for 2 minutes. She will grant this buff immediately after the death of Captain Galvangar, and will reapply it every 10 minutes. Killing her will result in honor for the Horde forces and Frostwolf Clan reputation, and prevent Alliance players from gaining this buff.

At the end of the game, if Balinda is still alive, she yields bonus honor, experience and reputation with the Stormpike Guard.


Cataclysm This section concerns content related to Cataclysm.

Though minor, Balinda Stonehearth is involved in the three way alliance with Vanndar Stormpike and Ivar Bloodfang. She is at Purgation Isle with both of them.

Begone, uncouth scum! The Alliance shall prevail in Alterac Valley!
Take heart, Alliance! Throw these villains from Alterac Valley! (Alliance players receives Stormpike's Salvation buff (+20% health points for 2 minutes).)
Filthy Frostwolf cowards! If you want a fight, you'll have to come to me!


  • She is mentioned by Rylai Crestfall, who apparently considered her a pushover.
  • Balinda has had various spells tweaked, added or removed since her original implementation:
    • Mass [Slow] - used to slow up to 5 players on her aggro table
    • [Polymorph] - was removed as she would often polymorph targets in melee range, then subsequently break it with Arcane Explosion.
