    It's a common stereotype. And fighting a stereotype is like going against a freight train with bare fists.

Quote ''Blizzard has talked about turning Jaina's hair all white because of the shock, and her becoming this very violent and dangerous mage.''
    wait wait wait... you thought it was real? who in the world would be stupid enough to give a major model update on April fools, everything was fake, and no, im not saying this because they have now admitted it was fake, if you look through the past posts i said that it was fake... if ive made any sense today... than that would be a first

    On a side note, im shocked on how many peoplez thought this was real...

    That's a pretty terrible post for someone who's calling other people's intelligence into question. They model wasn't "given" today by Blizzard. It was merely data mined today. That and the fact that Blizzard rarely (if ever) starts an April's fools joke beforehand (as they mentioned this change beforehand) mean that it is quite coherent, and not stupid at all, to think this might be real. Not to mention the **spoilers** giant arcane crater in Theramore, it could mean Jaina did something that spent her, turning her hair white. This wouldn't be the first time this happens in fiction. They also said "Jaina would be getting some love soon" a while ago, so it all fits. In fact, I'd like to know where's the confirmation that this is an April's Fools joke, because I'm still not convinced, and I think it's a good story arc. Jaina was the first female (thus, an actual) Mary Sue of WoW, it's nice to see her developed into an actual character.

    With Blizzard, everything can be fake or real depending on popular opinion. They can abolish emo Jaina because the crowd doesn't want it, or they can implement it even when initially planning it as a joke idea (Pandaren, despite their presence in WC3:TFT, are largely considered a joke when people discussed the probability of getting them in WoW. Look what we are getting next expansion?) I didn't think this was going to be real either, but mostly because of the release date. With that said, I wouldn't be surprised even if they ended up using the model and the storyline behind it.

    Oh come on emo Jaina was so damn obvious ... If they make something real it'll be the zerg authenticator. That would actually sell too.

    The Tramp stamp made it so obvious haha, Regardless it's a wonderful april fools joke thingie.

    The make-up colour scheme actually looks better than her normal transvestite hooker make-up that someone at Blizzard apparently thought was a good idea.

    Honestly I would not have minded this model at all, her current model makes her look like a made-up whore anyway.

    Why? Look at this:

    Arthas lost his kingdom to the Scourge
    Jaina lost her kingdom to the Horde

    Arthas' hair turned from blond to white
    Jaina's hair turned from blond to white

    Arthas gained a black armor filled with skulls decoration
    Jaina gained black clothes with her body filled with skull tato's

    People trought Sylvanas was gonna be the next Arthas.... but Jaina is getting pretty close aswell
    Because jaina has the power to raise/ressurect the undead and sylvanas doesnt

    Come on really? This is nothing more then a minor pallet swap with tattoos added. That would take all of 5-10 minutes to change the colors of the current in game model.
