High Priestess Laurena
|Affiliation(s)||Stormwind, Church of the Holy Light|
|Occupation||High priestess, Priest trainer|
|Location||Cathedral of Light, Stormwind City|
High Priestess Laurena is a human priestess and priest trainer located behind the altar in the Cathedral of Light in Stormwind City. Based on her title, she seems to be a high-ranking member of the Church of the Holy Light and appears to be in charge of the cathedral.
She was present at the ceremony at Lion's Rest after the Argus Campaign. She blessed the troubled King Anduin Wrynn before she gave a speech to the gathered crowd. Once she was finished, King Anduin continued in the speech. Later, she found King Anduin in the Netherlight Temple and asked him to come back to Stormwind as his servant Wyll was dying. She was later asked to tend to Wyll's body. Calia Menethil later asked her about Wyll.
I trust the Light is with you, <name>. Is there something that I can I help you with?
Do not turn your back on the Light, <class>, it may be the one thing that saves you some day.
- Void elf
I commend your dedication. However, I fear you walk a dangerous path.
You would best serve the Alliance away from the cathedral.

To have given yourself wholly to the Light... you are an example to us all.
Before the Storm also mentions the ceremony for the deceased of the war against the Lich King. During that ceremony, Archbishop Benedictus gave the speech. As such, Laurena seems to have replaced Benedictus, at least in giving speeches and given her rank, probably as the leader of the Church of the Holy Light as well.
