Valdera's hero power keeps him up and running by ignoring most of the damage he takes. You have no choice but to kill him slowly, while first dealing with whatever he throws at you. If you have 1 damage-dealing at a time spell like LegacyArcane Missiles, use it.

Fancy adventurer wearing shiny-loots as armor. Not fair to loots!


Valdera Highborne
Come at me!
Hah! You wish. (vs. Rakanishu)
Leather on... leather? Haha! Nothing compared to plate! (vs. Rise of ShadowsCaptain Eudora)
A rat? Eugh. In scraps? EUGH. (vs. Rise of ShadowsSqueamlish)
Your armor may be... plentiful, but nothing compared to mine! (vs. Rise of ShadowsTekahn)
Rise of ShadowsMr. Chu
It will be my pleasure.
Rise of ShadowsGeorge the Fallen
Your ignorance reminds me of those fools in the catacombs!

Emote Response

Valdera Highborne
Even your pathetic words fail to penetrate my MASTERWORK armor!

Hero Power

Valdera Highborne
Are you going to keep trying? Just give up!
Hmm hmm hmm, la la la!
I barely felt a thing!
Not today, swine!
Oh were you... trying? Bahaha!
There's a reason I spent a fortune on this set.

Hero Power prevents death

Valdera Highborne
Oh. I planned it that way. Haha!
Whew. That was... too close!


Valdera Highborne
I wish I had some flashier cards to go with this armor.
I'm so... shiny!
The worst part about this is all the polishing I need to do...
Can we wrap this up? I'm heading to Warsong Gulch after this.

Player gains armor

Valdera Highborne
Did you craft that yourself? Hahaha!
That armor is just... is just... embarrassing!
That's your armor? Ha!

Haha! My armor can even deal damage!
What's wrong? Afraid of my ARMOR?
LegacyLay on Hands
I can do more than just sit here and look nice!
