Notes

Map of the "Thros, the Blighted Lands" scenario.

Take the Portal to the Blighted Lands to enter the "Thros, the Blighted Lands" scenario:

Stage 1: The Blighted Lands

  • Follow Katherine into Thros, the Blighted Lands.
  • Follow Katherine

A vision of Jaina as a child appears:

Jaina says: It's... all my fault...
Katherine Proudmoore says: Jaina?!
Jaina says: No! Stay away!
Katherine Proudmoore says: Jaina, wait!

Stage 2: Chasing Shadows

  • Jaina has fled deeper into the Blighted Lands. Follow her.
  • Follow Jaina [23.7, 55.7]300px
Katherine Proudmoore says: <name>, we must follow her!

On the way:

Katherine Proudmoore says: Poor souls... no one should endure this. After we save Jaina, we must find a way to come back for them.
Katherine Proudmoore says: Not if I have anything to say about it!
Servant of Thros yells: Proudmoore's daughter is ours, interloper!

A Servant of Thros blocks the way.Defeat it:

Servant of Thros yells: Thros... will consume you...
Katherine Proudmoore says: Jaina is just ahead. We must hurry!

Approach Jaina again:

Katherine Proudmoore says: It's alright, dear...
Jaina says: No! You can't help me! No one can help me!
Katherine Proudmoore says: Wait!
Jaina splits into three mirror images, which run in different directions before disappearing.
Katherine Proudmoore says: When Jaina was a child, she used to hide whenever she was frightened or upset.
Katherine Proudmoore says: I always found her then... and I will not fail her now.

Stage 3: Hide and Seek

  • Find Jaina's mirror images, which have hidden throughout the Blighted Lands.
  • Images of Jaina found
Katherine Proudmoore says: Lead the way, <name>.

Off to the west, at [21.4, 56.5]300px Jaina is surrounded by Theramore Citizens:

Theramore Citizen says: You left us to die!
Theramore Citizen says: You could have stopped him! You could have saved us!
Jaina says: I failed them... all of them...
Katherine Proudmoore says: No! Don't listen to them, Jaina!
Theramore Citizen yells: You will never take our prize!

They turn hostile. Defeat them, then interact with Jaina:

Katherine Proudmoore says: Jaina... you were... are... the pride of Kul Tiras. Her power, and her fury...
Katherine Proudmoore says: ...but even the strongest of us can't save everyone.
Katherine Proudmoore says: She's gone. The child was only a reflection... an echo of Jaina's suffering.
Katherine Proudmoore says: We must continue our search.

To the north, at [25.2, 50.1]300px Rhonin and two Kirin Tor Invokers are dressing Jaina down:

Rhonin says: You let your personal biases taint the Kirin Tor!
Rhonin says: I was a fool to think you could be our leader!
Jaina says: But... they lied to me...

Defeat them:

Rhonin yells: Your screams will be unending!
Katherine Proudmoore says: He's not real, Jaina! None of this is!
Blighted Deciever[sic] says: You will... wish for death...
Katherine Proudmoore says: My dearest Jaina... reason alone cannot dictate all of your choices.
Katherine Proudmoore says: If you abandon your feelings, only an empty darkness will remain.

Interact with the echo:

Katherine Proudmoore says: Another illusion? Jaina must still be trapped nearby.
Daelin Proudmoore says: You sided with mongrels over your own flesh and blood!
Katherine Proudmoore says: That voice... Daelin?!
Katherine Proudmoore says: No. It must be another of those creatures tormenting Jaina. Hurry!

To the east, at [26.2, 52.5]300pxin a hollow, King Varian Wrynn is staring Jaina down:

King Varian Wrynn says: You were at my side in the Undercity. We had them cornered! Justice was within my grasp!
King Varian Wrynn says: I could have ended them all! Sylvanas... Thrall... Think what our world could have been without them and their twisted Horde!
King Varian Wrynn says: But you... You stayed my blade. How many Alliance soldiers died that day? And in all the battles that followed?
Jaina says: All because of me...
Katherine Proudmoore says: Get away from her!
King Varian Wrynn yells: She belongs to Gorak Tul!

Defeat the deceiver:

Blighted Deciever says: We will not be denied... our vengeance...
Katherine Proudmoore says: Seeking an end to bloodshed is a noble pursuit, Jaina.
Katherine Proudmoore says: I wish your father could have learned that lesson.

Interact with Jaina to continue.

Stage 4: Into the Mirror

  • Follow Daelin's voice to locate Jaina's true location.
  • Find the real Jaina [19.4, 53.7]300px
Katherine Proudmoore says: My daughter is here somewhere. Hiding. Suffering.
Katherine Proudmoore says: We will find her... and free her from this forsaken place.

Head west to find Jaina staring at Daelin Proudmoore:

Daelin Proudmoore says: You stood and watched as those animals cut me down. What has your betrayal earned you?
Jaina says: Father... please...
Daelin Proudmoore says: They took your father... betrayed your king... and you did nothing! Will you abandon all your allies to the Horde?
Katherine Proudmoore says: Enough! Show us your true form, monster!
Daelin Proudmoore yells: Insolent fools! She is broken beyond your reach!

Defeat it:

Daelin Proudmoore yells: You will be next!
Blighted Deciever says: You are... too late...
Katherine Proudmoore says: Jaina? Is it really you?

Interact with her and a cinematic plays, the Realm of Torment:

Katherine Proudmoore: There you are...
Jaina as a child is sitting on a ruined part of a building, head in her hands and crying.
Jaina Proudmoore: I did everything wrong.
Katherine reaches out to touch Jaina, but her hand goes through Jaina's body like smoke. Shocked, Katherine looks around as the scenery surrounding her disappears. She hears a male's voice.
Arthas Menethil: We're too late.
Katherine turns and sees Arthas standing on a small rise, staring off into the distance before looking back.
Arthas Menethil: This entire city must be purged.
Arthas Menethil: Jaina?
Katherine follows Arthas's gaze and spots Jaina.
Jaina Proudmoore: I'm sorry Arthas. I can't watch you do this.
Jaina turns and leaves, her thoughts echoing.
Jaina Proudmoore: (thinking) We should have stopped him. He never would have turned. He'd still be alive.
As Katherine reaches towards Jaina, a familiar voice is heard.
Daelin Proudmore: You have always been naive, my daughter.
Katherine Proudmoore: Daelin?
Katherine turns in the direction of her husband's voice and sees Jaina and Daelin having an argument by a fountain.
Jaina Proudmoore: I won't let you do it, father!
Jaina Proudmoore: (thinking) I should have tried harder.
Jaina Proudmoore: You don't understand!
Daelin Proudmoore: I understand more than you suspect, my dear.
Jaina Proudmoore: (thinking) I wasn't strong enough.
Daelin Proudmoore: Perhaps in time, you will too.
Daelin turns away, barking an order.
Daelin Proudmoore: Seize them all!
Jaina Proudmoore: (thinking) I should have made him listen.
Jaina Proudmoore: Father, no!
Jaina Proudmoore: (thinking) Forgive me.
Katherine Proudmoore: You couldn't save him... from himself.
Daelin Proudmoore: Do you really think you can cast aside your guilt so easily?
Katherine clutches her head, gritting her teeth listening to Jaina's screams. As the scream fades, Katherine sees Jaina cradling Daelin's corpse on her knees.
Jaina Proudmoore: No. Father... why wouldn't you listen.
Priscilla Ashvane: Katherine...
Katherine turns her attention to Jaina's arrival in Kul Tiras.
Priscilla Ashvane: Enforce our laws. The punishment for treason... is death.
Katherine Proudmoore: Do you accept the judgment of your homeland?
Behind Jaina stands many of those she has lost, including Rhonin, Kinndy Sparkshine, Varian Wrynn, Daelin Proudmoore, and Arthas Menethil.
Jaina Proudmoore: I accept your judgment... mother.
Katherine steps forward and swipes away her past self, then reaches out and lifts Jaina's chin.
Katherine Proudmoore: My daughter. Forgive me.
Jaina opens her eyes and looks up, surprised to see her mother in front of her.
Katherine Proudmoore: Forgive your father.
Jaina turns to look as the men and women behind her fade away, with the exception of Daelin, but for a moment.
Katherine Proudmoore: And... forgive yourself.
Katherine reaches back out and turns Jaina back to face her. Jaina leans her face into Katherine's hand as the scene fades to white.
Katherine Proudmoore: Come topside, sweetheart.
Awakened from their memories, Jaina leans in to her mother and they embrace.

Final Stage: Facing Fate

Defeat Gorak Tul and escape from the Blighted Lands.
  • Escape the Blighted Lands
Katherine Proudmoore says: Jaina? Is it really you?
Katherine Proudmoore says: Come, daughter. We'll find our way out of here.
Gorak Tul yells: None of you will escape!
Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: Mother, look out!
Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: Mother!
Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: You challenged the wrong family, fiend!
Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: To arms, <name>!
Gorak Tul yells: Thros will consume you all! At last I will claim vengeance!

Defeat Gorak Tul:

Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: My people defeated your kind once, monster. We will do so again!
Gorak Tul says: Your hollow victory... means nothing...
Gorak Tul says: The Drust... will never... relent...
Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: And Kul Tiras will never yield.
Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: Mother! Are you alright?
Katherine Proudmoore says: Yes... I will be fine.
Katherine Proudmoore says: We'd better go before more of those... things... arrive.
Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: It will be a relief to put this place behind me.
Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: <name>, shall we?

Speak with Jaina:

I can teleport us out of here when you are ready, <class>.
Please hurry, I wish to be rid of this place.

Gossip I'm ready to leave.

Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: Very well. Come, mother. Time to go home.
Jaina teleports herself, her mother, and the adventurer out of Thros.

Finale

In front of Proudmoore Keep, the two Proudmoores stop for a moment to gather themselves.
Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: It is good to feel the sea air. Thank you, <name>. Without your intervention, I may never have felt it again...
Katherine Proudmoore says: Now, let me see if I can do this properly this time... Welcome home, daughter.
Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: Mother... I--
Taelia flies in
Taelia says: Lord Admiral! Ships on the horizon! They're flying Ashvane colors!
Katherine Proudmoore says: Priscilla has come back for my city...
Katherine Proudmoore says: <name>! It seems I am in need of your aid once more.

This awards the "Alliance [The Pride of Kul Tiras]" achievement, but the storyline continues with A [120D] Siege of Boralus: Lady Ashvane's Return.
