Patch 9.2.5 – Jaina & Khadgar Conversation, Gooey Slimesaber Mount

Patch 9.2.5 – Jaina & Khadgar Conversation
In Patch 9.2.5 the Watchful Raven in Oribos flies down and transforms into Khadgar, which proceeds to have a conversation with Jaina Proudmoore. Minor Spoilers!

Archmage Khadgar says: Hello, Jaina.
Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: Khadgar! It’s good to see you again. When we last parted, I regret that–
Archmage Khadgar says: Those were perilous times. The Legion’s attack, then the war… I think we both needed to find our own way through.
Archmage Khadgar says: I have no hard feelings. Only friendship.
Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: I feel the same. But surely you didn’t come all the way to the Shadowlands just to find me.
Archmage Khadgar says: No. For years I’ve read about this place in Medivh’s books. I stood atop Karazhan and caught glimpses through the veil.
Archmage Khadgar says: I suppose I wanted to gaze upon the realms of Death with mine own eyes before…
Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: Is everything alright, Khadgar?
Archmage Khadgar says: I feel the weight of years upon me, Jaina. The burdens carried. The choices made.
Archmage Khadgar says: Hmph! Forgive the musings of an old man. I think I’ll look around and see these Shadowlands a bit. See what wonders I can find.
Archmage Khadgar says: I’ve heard tales of conniving brokers, a city of secrets, and a land of ancient knowledge. How intriguing!
Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: Sounds like you’ll be keeping busy! Just don’t leave without saying goodbye. I’ve missed you, old friend.
Archmage Khadgar says: Count on it, Jaina. Be seeing you.

Making a Mount Together
Our artists have kicked things off by coming up with concepts for five unique mounts for you to choose between. Now it’s time for your part—pick your favorite from the poll linked above and below; the highest number of votes internationally will be crowned the winning choice and our artists will begin working on making your choice a reality.

  • Wandering Ancient – Not all ancients are interested in war or lore, some just want to travel the world! A large and leafy mount, the Wandering Ancient invites you to climb aboard and grab ahold of its branches as you embark on a lumbering expedition.
  • Soaring Spelltome – In the forgotten depths of the Dalaran library, this oversized tome was found flapping madly around the room. Open the pages of this arcane-infused book and hitch a ride to magical adventure.
  • Nerubian Swarmer – When the Helm of Domination shattered, the Nerubians under the control of the Lich King were unleashed. Some were captured by the Argent Crusade and turned by their allies in the Ebon Blade. Now their spidery claws are put to use as mounts, skittering through the frozen tundra of Icecrown in pursuit of the rampaging undead.
  • Curious Caterpillar – A curious caterpillar found its way to the Heartland in Valley of the Four Winds one night and gorged itself on the oversized vegetables. The Pandaren of Halfhill awoke the next morning to find the crops half-eaten and an enormous, slumbering caterpillar among them. Too large to become a butterfly, this friendly worm is just the right size to train as a mount.
  • Gooey Slimesaber – From the slime pools of Plaguefall emerged all manner of jellied creature, including this sticky kitty. A slimy saber cat that’s dripping with ooze, it’s the kind of mount that you’re going to want to wear gloves for.
