Valeera Sanguinar is a melee assassin hailing from World of Warcraft. Originally, she was created for the DC Unlimited action figures line up. Shortly after, she was introduced for the first time in the Wildstorm/DC World of Warcraft Comics as an adventure companion of Lo'gosh, later discovered to be an amnesiac King Varian Wrynn. Valeera appeared in the World of Warcraft MMORPG later on during the Siege of Undercity storyline (Wrath of the Lich King expansion). Now Valeera enters the Nexus slaying her opponents with stealthy tactics and brutal Sinister Strikes and Evicerations upon unsuspecting enemies.

Role: Melee Assassin

Difficulty: Hard

Shadow of the Uncrowned

For a time, the gladiator Valeera Sanguinar served dutifully as one of Varian Wrynn's personal bodyguards. Now, her shadowy skills find her a natural fit within the secretive rogue order, the Uncrowned, in their fight against the Legion.
