2. Common Talent Paths

2.1. Flame Build (talent calculator link)

The Flame Build provides Alexstrasza with a surprising amount of damage over time. By the same token, Fire Within Icon Fire Within at Level 7 offers a reliable source of self-healing. Alexstrasza's Level 13 and 20 talents are quite situational, however, we generally recommend Pacify Icon Pacify as a solid standard choice. If your team features multiple high health Heroes or if you happen to be the only Support on your team, Life Unbound Icon Life Unbound can be a good substitute talent. At Level 20, On Ruby Wings Icon On Ruby Wings is a good alternative choice to Ancient Flame Icon Ancient Flame.

2.2. Heal Build (talent calculator link)

The Heal Build is a great choice if you are the only Support on your team. The various talents possess great synergy, which makes this Build very fluent to play. The first crucial power spike hits at Level 7, when Lifeblossom Icon Lifeblossom becomes available. This talent allows Alexstrasza to keep healing without losing health herself. At Level 13, Pacify Icon Pacify can be picked instead of Life Unbound Icon Life Unbound if the enemy team features burst heavy Assassins. At Level 16, Overprotective Icon Overprotective is a great choice if you face strong AoE damage.
