Captain Balinda Stonehearth is a level ?? boss human elite found in Stonehearth Outpost in Alterac Valley.

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

"Captain Balinda Stonehearth commands a massive human unit reinforcing the Stormpike clan in the valleys of the Alterac Mountains."[1] (APG 169)

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 Clan.



  • Aggro: 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))
  • Reset: Filthy Frostwolf cowards! If you want a fight, you'll have to come to me!


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.
