Jaina Proudmoore

Kel’Thuzad (and more) now live in Heroes of the Storm Kel’Thuzad is now live in Heroes of the Storm! He’s intended to be a bursty type of mage and combo abilities will likely be key to taking down enemies. If you haven’t seen what he can do yet, check out his hero spotlight. But while Kel’Thuzad is pretty exciting, he isn’t all there is to...

Does Jaina appearing on BlizzCon key art mean anything? Probably not Earlier this month, Blizzard Entertainment revealed Jaina Proudmoore will be representing World of Warcraft on this year’s BlizzCon key art. We’ve been debating whether or not this actually means anything for what’s to come in World of Warcraft — and honestly, probably not. Chromie was the WoW representative in BlizzCon 2016’s key art and we...




Know Your Lore: The tragic fall of Arthas Menethil Last week we talked about Arthas Menethil, the Paladin, the son of Lianne and Terenas Menethil. The Crown Prince of Lordaeron. This week, we talk about Arthas Menethil’s fate. Stirrings of the Plague For a while, all seemed well in Lordaeron. The Trolls of Zul’Aman made a few forays into the kingdom, but Prince Arthas...

Knights of the Frozen Throne comic series is full of tall tales about our favorite heroes Are you excited for Hearthstone’s upcoming Knights of the Frozen Throne? Are you wondering just what in the heck is going on with all of the characters being Death Knights now (and what’s the deal with the lore inconsistencies)? Then Blizzard has a series of online comics that do absolutely nothing to answer any of those...

Know Your Lore: What comes next? One of the questions I hear a lot is: After we deal with the Legion, what threat could possibly be next? It’s a question I’ve asked myself a few times. There are some obvious answers, of course, but one of the trends I’m seeing in Legion is that we’re being our usual short sighted selves...

Trauma in World of Warcraft This isn’t a defense of any character’s actions in WoW or the story of the Warcraft setting. Rather, it’s an examination of the haphazard way that traumatic experiences are shown to shape characters — some characters recover from experiences in a very short time while others never seem to, and still others are shown to...




Role Play: Mage roleplay in Legion Mage roleplay has been ramping up over the past couple of expansions. Where other classes might not have a particularly defined history behind them, Mages certainly do. And as far as WoW is concerned, the role of the Mage in Azeroth’s future is slowly becoming more important than ever. With the Kirin Tor in a...

Role Play: Horde roleplay in Legion The Alliance may have a lot to think about plot-wise this expansion, but the Horde has just as much going on – and none of it is particularly happy. Horde roleplay in Legion mirrors the Alliance. After all, the Burning Legion isn’t just a threat to one faction or the other; it’s a threat to...



Know Your Lore: Who is Jaina Proudmoore? A couple of years ago, I wrote about Jaina Proudmoore’s progress as a character after the loss of Theramore and the events in Mists of Pandaria. At the time, I was happy that the character was seeing some kind of movement – something beyond hoping for diplomacy and peace. It seemed as though Jaina was...

Know Your Lore: The beginning of the Third War The skies split open. Demons razed the land. Corpses walked. It was the end of the world. It was the Third War, fought not between Horde and Alliance, but fought by those that lived and wished to continue to do so against the demons of the Burning Legion and their servants and pawns. Having failed...

Know Your Lore: Baine Bloodhoof Baine Bloodhoof certainly wasn’t a high-profile leader in Warlords of Draenor, nor was he more than a minor character in the events presented in Mists. But in the novels and behind the scenes, Baine has far more influence than you’d expect, both from a Tauren leader, and from a leader so new to his position....

Moviewatch: Board Clear Hearthstone machinima is a rare beast. You can’t do much with tokens on a gameboard. However, Drew Carrymore brings us Board Clear, a delightful mishap the result of Gul’dan and Jaina going toe-to-toe in the tavern.

Know Your Lore: The origins of Cairne Bloodhoof He’s been dead since Cataclysm, but his life saw his people move from a nomadic existence in perpetual war against the marauding centaur to a part of the Horde, settled in Thunder Bluff and at last capable of securing their own future. His journey was the journey of his people, and who they are now...

Know Your Lore: Khadgar The last time I talked about Khadgar, it wasn’t really so much of a history and more a questioning Tinfoil Hat Edition, because frankly, Khadgar’s place in Warlords has been just a little odd. His familiarity with Garona isn’t at all out of place, but his single-minded obsession with Gul’dan’s downfall certainly is — the...

Laura Bailey talks about playing Jaina Proudmoore You may or may not know Laura Bailey, but she’s the voice actress behind Jaina Proudmoore in World of Warcraft. She’s also been working in the industry since 2002’s Bloodrayne (in which she voiced the character of Rayne) and in darn near everything since. This interview at The Escapist gives you an idea of just how big...
