If a player becomes Ragnaros (that has a 8HP limit) by using Majordomo Executus' deathrattle, he can subsequently play Alexstrasza to increase his HP to 15.

What happens if, after suffering damage, the player summons Reno Jackson, triggering his battlecry? Is 15 the new permanent maximum, or is 8 still considered "full health" for Ragnaros?


From the wiki you linked:

Alexstrasza can be used upon the Ragnaros hero to alter its current and maximum Health to 15. Following this, if the Ragnaros hero takes damage it will be possible to heal it back up to 15

This was apparently confirmed by Blizzard employee Zeriyah on her now empty Twitter.

Ben Brode has also confirmed via twitter that the new maximum HP is 15.

    The question isn't if it's possible to heal Ragnaros back to 15 HP but what value Reno uses to heal. Is it 8 (baseline) or 15 (newly added bonus HP)

    @Jutschge Reno heals to maximum health and this snippet says that after applying Alexstrasza the max health is 15.

    I couldn't really find a video to this but I found this discussion in a reddit comment section. There isn't really proof for any side of the argument.

    Should be easy enough to test within a few friendly staged battles.

    I've independently validated this and you are correct. Incidentally the same is true for the Lord Jaraxxus hero. If Reno is used, it will be restored to 15HP. Jan 18 '17 at 19:15
