Journal.pngPlease add any available information to this section.

Holding back your Stealthed 1-health minions (Patient Assassin and Spymistress) could be a mistake since Helka can just wipe them out using Whirlwind, so may as well have them attack ASAP.

The use of whirlwind may damage a gladiator Helka summons via "Fight's On" which actually protects them from taking 2 damage via Backstab.


Before match

Valeera (present)
Despite my doubts, Rehgar's instincts proved correct. We became a winning team, defying all expectations...
But soon after, I was sold to another gladiator trainer. Mostly I was just angry, yet... I think I missed the others.
All of their stupid banter had grown on me, though I hated to admit it. And I was ready to be free.


Helka Grimtotem
Show me how well you fight on your own, blood elf.
Don't make me laugh. I'm a champion, you know.

Emote Response

Helka Grimtotem
Why are you elves always so mouthy?

Hero Power

Helka Grimtotem
Face this!
Fight to the end!
Time for a new trainee!


Helka Grimtotem
Skilled assassins are always welcome among the Grimtotems.
Something is amiss. Do you regret being separated from your team?
There are not many blood elves here in Kalimdor. You are most unusual.

Boss' turn 4

Is this what passes for a gladiator in Thunder Bluff?
Helka Grimtotem
Less talking and more fighting!

Turn 5

There's no one here who could actually challenge me.
Helka Grimtotem
We shall see about that.

Turn 7

Helka Grimtotem
Rehgar vouched for you, but even I did not expect you to be so skillful.
I have that effect on people.


Well, that was thrilling. I'm definitely going to stick around for more of this gladiator fighting business.
Helka Grimtotem
No, I'm not. Bye now!


Helka Grimtotem
I had such high hopes for you... What a pity.

Helka Grimtotem is the niece of Magatha Grimtotem. She is a gladiator mistress and bought Valeera Sanguinar from Rehgar Earthfury for 2000 gold after his team won at the Dire Maul tournament. Helka wanted Valeera to lead an all-female gladiator team consisting of an orc and a troll. However soon after they set out for an exhibition game on the Merchant Coast, Valeera escaped with the wyvern Bristlefur.
