Battle for Lordaeron Jaina Cinematic

Recommended Posts

Y83YXKA.jpg

Here's a new cinematic of epic proportions showing off Jaina's epic arrival to aid King Anduin in the Battle for Lordaeron!

Battle for Lordaeron is now available on live realms and three new cinematics have emerged! You can find the other two other cinematics here.

In the Jaina cinematic, we see Proudmoore arrive to the battle with style on a flying boat and the Arcane Barrage is epic too! What do you think? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!

Blight being removed by casting a giant frost nova... How high must one's suspension of disbelief be?

 

Next time Chen Stormstout comes in and just does a burp to the same effect. What's this deus ex machina?

 

"We don't really know what Jaina can use as assets to remove lingering gas, but we HAVE to give her a good entrance anyway, so let's just use a frost nova."

Okay I'll admit it, that was a cool entrance... Still doesn't absolve her for spending an entire Demon Invasion sulking her room like a little brat though.

The whole flying ship thing with arcane canons looks a bit overdone and kitsch but Jaina by herself rocks. The ice nova vs. plague loks a bit funny but why not. it's Blizzard, let's say that the cold kills the bacteria or something.

To be honest, she looks kinda tired. Black circles beneath her eyes, pale skin, her hair is almost fully white now.

Jaina, gal, you have let yourself go.

I'm not well versed on the minute details of lore, but can someone explain why it seems Jaina has experienced a leap in power level?  It feels like she's being portrayed at the same power level as Khadgar, which seems out of place to me.

The use of arcane is taxing, and corrupts.  Khadgar, too, looks older than he is, and is often portrayed with dark bags under his eyes.

Khadgar looks old because of the curse Medivh cast on him, though.

Maybe it's the power of PURE ANGER. Or in a sense she had her "Elsa moment" and just "Let it go", as in finally getting over the grief for her father and Kul'Tiras and taking action.

The frost nova was powerful enough to essentially push away the blight, much like a heavy gust.

When you see your own father being struck down by the Horde, your own lover becoming the Lich King, seeing Theramore Island get bombed etc etc. I'm not surprised she look's tired, she's been through hell.

Jaina is the most deserving WoW character of raid boss status.

 

Let's send her to her father already!

Jaina has always been OP.  Since MoP she has been the most powerful Mage on Azeroth.

Kadghar is only the Kirin'Tor's leader because Jaina /gquit.

Remember the Thunder King in MoP?  The guy that had the power of the Titan's in his staff and could control eventually gain control over all creation?

That power has been Jaina's since the end of MoP.  This is why I keep one Alliance toon to play through the other side.  The Alliance Characters imbue Jaina's Staff, which used to be Antodias' Staff, with the power of the Thunder King the Pinnacle of Storms.

That's why her threat to summon thousands of water elementals to Drown Orgrimmar was a real threat that she needed to be talked down from.  Most Mages can summon 1 elemental she can control thousands of elementals at the same time.

Through walls and all the way within the city as well. Impressive.

Very impressive! I hope to see more of this!

 

All jokes aside, the blight was more than likely pushed around the building or upwards. Stop over analysing and getting upset over the smallest things.

I wouldn't really call changing the entire outcome of the battle all by herself small.

He's not talking about her changing the entire outcome of the battle. He's talking about the physics and logic behind the frost Nova that was used to get rid of the blight. Since Jaina isn't really a shaman she can't just call upon the forces of the wind spirits to sweep the blight away. Instead she casts a very powerful frost Nova that is capable of clearing the area.

He also proceeds to claim that it goes through the walls and such, thus complaining about a minor detail that isn't really showed all that well. 

My thing is, is that she came in on a flying ship. And the one thing that stands out is the fact that she used a frost Nova? Come on. Jaina literally rode in on a flying ship, used it's own cannons to lay siege to the walls. But nooooooo, the fact that frost Nova was used in this scenario is far more bizarre and wrong.

Is this the first time you're seeing a flying ship in WoW? It started all the way in Vanilla... Of course I'm not going to be surprised about something that's been in the game since the beginning.

Yep. I didn't play in Vanilla, started in TBC. 

Unless you're talking about the Zeppelins and flying alliance ships.

And in that case, yes. But at least the ships have some way of being lifted or stay in the air. Jaina is literally using magic to lift and fly a boat, which is cool but pretty bizarre and strange.

Well Priests can use levitate and Mages slow fall it's kinda an advanced version of it. The thing is though... she is levitating the ship, using a giant frost Nova that's cleansing the blight (which in Wotlk before needed Alexstrasza to do, even Arthas retreated from it) AND is using Arcane Barrage with Arcane Cannons that simply destroy the Lordaeron walls right after. Mana Problems anyone?

She just did in a few minutes/seconds what an entire army could not.

Jaina is a very powerful mage, this really shouldn't be a surprise. We have seen her grow in power as time went on. Which is why she is capable of doing the things that you have pointed out. 

Still pretty strange for her to be riding in on a ship.

      We're revisiting Pandaria in Patch 8.3, so Blizzard added a new soft pink recolor of the good old serpent mount to the game. The source of the mount is a placeholder and unknown for now.
      Chalcedony Cloud Serpent
      The gentle Chalcedony Cloud Serpents love to play in the petals that fall in the Arboretum, coloring their scales a soft pink hue.

      Hallow's End has arrived on live servers and there are no notable updates this year. The Headless Horseman's loot has been adjusted to item level 395. Check out our Hallow's End guide for more information about the event.
      Blizzard (Source)
      It’s time for Tricky Treats, costumes, and—of course—the return of the Headless Horseman during this year’s Hallow’s End!
      Hallow’s End celebrates the break of the Forsaken from the Scourge.
      Fun and mischief reign as the Innkeepers of Azeroth give treats, and tricks, to whomever asks.
      The spookiest time of year has arrived once more, and the Headless Horseman rides forth to strike terror into the hearts and minds of Azeroth’s citizens.
      When: October 18–November 1
      Where: Trick-or-Treat throughout the inns of Azeroth, Northrend, Pandaria, Outland, Draenor, and the Broken Isles (Dalaran) for tasty treats and currency to buy Hallow’s End delights.
      All together now! —the Headless Horseman is back to set fire to Razor Hill and Goldshire once more. You’ll need to lend a hand on the bucket brigade to put them out and face the infamous rider.
      It would be a lovely time of year to take a stroll through the Scarlet Monastery’s Graveyard if the Headless Horseman hadn’t decided to make it his new lair. If you're lucky and succeed in routing this menace from within, you may ride off with his steed.
      Throughout Hallow’s End, characters level 20-120 will be able to queue up for this ghoulish encounter in the Dungeon Finder.
      This year you’ll be able to exchange your Tricky Treats for a newly added 2018 toy:
      Headless Horseman's Hearthstone Head to Val’sharah to undertake a quest that begins with the Hag of the Crooked Tree in Bradensbrook. Follow the tale through to its culmination and you’ll receive some Tricky Treats and a chance of receiving one of four utterly bewitching hats.
      Hat of the First Sister Hat of the Second Sister Hat of the Third Sister Hat of the Youngest Sister ACHIEVEMENTS
      There are a total of 21 achievements that can be earned during this event. Completing the Meta-Achievement, Hallowed Be Thy Name, rewards the title: The Hallowed.

      Ny'alotha, the Waking City comes with a raid skip and once you defeat the first boss, you'll receive the raid skip quest and must collect 4 Corrupted Flesh Samples from the raid's penultimate boss to gain access to the skip.
      Players on 8.3 PTR discovered that once you defeat Wrathion, you will receive the "Ny'alotha: MOTHER's Guidance" quest, which unlocks a raid skip, granted that you've defeated the raid's eleventh boss, Carapace of N'Zoth, four times. After that, you should be able to skip straight to Carapace of N'Zoth without having to deal with the rest of the bosses.
      Ny'alotha is a twelve-boss raid and it's a good thing that they decided to include a raid skip.

      Cross-Realm Mythic Eternal Palace opens next week and Blizzard just announced nerfs for Lady Ashvane and Queen Azshara on Mythic difficulty to go live with it on October 22.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Hello!
      Earlier this week, the Mythic Hall of Fame for Azshara’s Eternal Palace reached its capacity, and guilds around the world have until the next weekly reset in each region to earn their Feat of Strength. At that time, Mythic difficulty will become available to cross-realm groups.
      Along with the closure of the Hall of Fame and the Achievement, we intend to make the following tuning changes during weekly maintenance in each region:
      Dungeons and Raids
      Azshara’s Eternal Palace Lady Ashvane Lady Ashvane’s health reduced by 5% in Mythic difficulty. Waterlogged periodic damage reduced by 10% in Mythic difficulty. Rippling Wave damage reduced by 10% in Mythic difficulty. Queen Azshara The "Stand Together!" and "Stay!" decree combination is no longer possible in Heroic difficulty. Overzealous Hulk and Tidemistress health reduced by 10% in Mythic difficulty. Draining Azshara’s Ancient Ward now reduces its energy by an additional 5 points in all difficulties. Empowering a Ward of Power now increases its energy by an additional 5 points in all difficulties. Healer-specialization characters are now less likely to be targeted with decree combinations that include “March!” in all difficulties. Short Circuit now drains 10% less energy from the affected Ward in all difficulties. Essence of Azeroth now has an increased duration if there are fewer than 20 players in the raid in Normal and Heroic difficulties, and lasts 30 seconds (was 25) in Mythic difficulty. As always, we’ll let you know here if we decide to make any further changes.
      Thank you very much!
