After some tries, here's a pretty nice viable Alexstraza build:

1: 25 globes can be a hard and long quest to finish depending the map and your team, so I'd mostly pick the first talent, which is super strong with your 7lv talent

4: I wouldn't recommend taking "Surge of vitality" unless you're realy good with the heroe and can comfortably land your Abundance, the slow is realy good for it's easy to land and provides a realy nice slow, while the "Exuberance" gives you more escape, and since we pick the Lifeblossom letting us heal while being almost always full hp, that comboes nicely.

7: LifeBlossom is extremely powerful, if you can just stay in the backlane and keep yourself up to 75% life, you can almost everytime freely cast your Gift of Life, giving you a 80%+ free Gift Of Life throughout most of the game.

10: While Life-Bender feels kinda nice since you're always almost full-life, binding it to a tank can be both ways realy satisfying, but Cleansing Flame realy is very strong, I would recommend picking Cleansing Flame most of the time, and only pick Life-Bender if there's too much backlane harassment and you need to heal yourself a lot, but even with that, Cleansing flame gives your an awesome escape / chase / quick move to help accross the map, making it the best choice in almost every case

13: that talent realy depends of the team you're playing against, while I would recommend taking "Pacify", Dragon scale can be realy nice to take you out of hard situations, for exemple, against a Valeera Dragon scales can be realy good, but against lots of burst like a Butcher or a Thrall, Pacify can save not only you but the person being targeted by that heroe, so realy watch the other team and if you get controlled too much, you'll know.

16: While we didn't empower Abundance that much, the shield given by "Overprotective" is still realy good, I do like that talent a lot, so I me and my team can desengage, I'll pop an Abundance and everyone will get a nice shield as well as most of their life back, giving us a realy good advantage when re-engaging. "Tough Love" can be nice against physical bursting heroes and "Draconic Discipline" is realy strong in a general matter for the Dragon form is realy strong by itself. I would recommend trying those depending on your lv 20 talent and see what feels best.

20: Ho lord, without hesitation "On Ruby Wings" is the best talent here, as it provides you with a certain dragon form at the end of your ult, I mean, it is realy easy to get those 8 "charges" and getting 15 seconds of Dragon form after landing gives you one of the best possible Engage and can realy turn a fight. I you picked your other ult, I'd take Ancient Flame, it's a nice catcher / desengager and can realy help in any situation, I don't like Blessing of the Red, as it is not that much health added.


So basicaly, both the Q spell and W spell builds are realy strong, while the Q spell build provides more solo burst healing, the W spell can quickly bring your team back to full HP, but requires a LOT more skill and game-time to master.

I do realy like to play Alexstraza when one of my teamate plays Varian with the Fury build, giving us the ability to realy 2v4 in some situations with Varian's self sustaining ability.

Playing with a Leoric can be realy interesting too, your ult and his ult caging them gives you a realy great way of dealing tons of damages while sustaining your team, to come back in Dragon form and having them packed in front of you.


This is in no way  THE ultimate and perfect build guide, but I hope it will help you to understand how to play her a bit.

      In Storm League, rank is always updated by taking the change in rating and determining the equivalent number of rank points to reward. While the Heroes team is quite happy with how it turned out, the system is causing problems in Bronze 5.
      In Bronze 5, players gain/lose far fewer points per game than players in other leagues and divisions. The underlying problem makes it harder to climb out of Bronze 5 and causes frustration and bad gameplay experience. The team is working on ways to improve it and provided an explanation of why this is happening.
      Blizzard (Source)
      With the launch of Storm League season 1 we have seen a dramatic improvement in rank distribution. One of the primary changes in this release was in how rank is determined. In the past, rank and rating were two entirely different concepts, both of which were updated differently after each game. It was very common for a player's rank and rating to diverge throughout each season which could cause the matchmaking system to struggle to find games.
      With the changes introduced this season, rank is always updated by taking the change in rating and determining the equivalent number of rank points to reward. This leaves very few ways rating and rank can diverge and results in most players being shown a number equivalent to their rating.
      Overall, we are very happy with how the changes are looking; however, we are aware of the inconsistencies players are currently experiencing in Bronze 5. With the new design, players in Bronze 5 will gain/lose far fewer points per game than players in all of the other leagues and divisions. The reason for this is a bit technical but we wanted to take the opportunity to elaborate on what's going on.
      Under the hood, matchmaking rating is simply a number on a bell curve. Every league and division encompasses a range of values on the same curve. For example, if the overall bell curve ranges from -10.0 to 10.0 and the range 1.0 to 1.5 maps to Gold 1, then a player with a rating of 1.25 will have the equivalent rank of Gold 1 & 500/1000 points. These numbers are intentionally made up as the real ones are always subject to change but the idea is the same.
      The reason for the decrease in points awarded in Bronze 5 is that the range of ratings that maps to Bronze 5 is much larger than other divisions. The difference is that this much larger range of ratings still maps to the same number of rank points. As a result, despite being rewarded the same change in matchmaking rating, the rank points awarded may be lower. This is visualized by the graph below:
      We understand that this inconsistency is a negative experience for players so we will be exploring some ways to improve it.
      Thanks for participating in Storm League and providing your feedback!
