Before match

Jaina Proudmoore (present)
All things change. That is what magic is—transformation, creation... destruction.
But, despite my command of it, I never realized how much change would affect me—the things I believed in… and the things I stood for.
I was raised in Kul Tiras, but as my talent for magic grew, I wanted to study under Archmage Antonidas in Dalaran.


Jaina Proudmoore
Take me on as your apprentice, please!
Archmage Antonidas
I'm afraid I don't have time for that.

Emote Response

Archmage Antonidas
Let's focus on the matter at hand.


Archmage Antonidas
I do sense there is something special about you, Miss Jaina.
My work with the Kirin Tor keeps me quite busy.
We are at war with the orc invaders. It takes much of my attention.

Turn 1

Jaina Proudmoore
I'll prove myself to you!

Turn 2

Archmage Antonidas
There are plenty of fine mages here who could help you.
Jaina Proudmoore
But I want it to be you! You're the best!
Archmage Antonidas
I suppose that's right...

Turn 4

Archmage Antonidas
You could ask Archmage Kel'Thuzad for instruction.
Jaina Proudmoore
No, not him. He gives me the creeps.


Jaina Proudmoore
Even my father is impressed by this one! And he never smiles at anything.
Archmage Antonidas
You are quite good.


Archmage Antonidas
All right, Miss Jaina. You have won me over. I could not imagine a better candidate for my apprentice.
Jaina Proudmoore
Really? Oh, thank you!


Archmage Antonidas
Forgive me, Miss Jaina. I'm certain you'll become a wonderful mage in time.


Antonidas was a character in Warcraft III, seen briefly a few times before eventually being killed by Arthas when Arthas sieged Dalaran for the Scourge. Antonidas was well known and respected in Lordaeron as one of its most elder and powerful of mages. He also trained Cosmetics - PNG logo.pngJaina Proudmoore. She was his newest, and most promising, student before he met his demise. He also knew NaxxramasKel'Thuzad, a mage that eventually forsook the city to study forbidden necromancy before the Scourge was formed. Towards his end, he used his powerful magic to construct an anti Undead aura, hoping it would finally stop the Scourge invasion by protecting Dalaran. While the magical aura worked in practice, it was not enough and still they took the city. The magic was then lost when Antonidas and the order were slaughtered.

Antonidas was but a mere boy when he became an apprentice to one of the Kirin Tor. He was a tenacious learner, pouring over books in the magical libraries of Dalaran. After only a few short years of studying under the sect, Antonidas had outclassed his peers and earned their admiration, as well as the respect of his elders. At the age of 12, Antonidas' thesis, "The Ramifications of refined Reverse Time Travel Phenomena into Quantifiable Magical Practice", earned him the Kirin Tor Sash of Supreme Acumen, the youngest ever to receive the award. Shortly thereafter the Ruling Council offered him official placement in the Kirin Tor Advanced Research and Illumination Sect, also the youngest to receive an official invitation.

As the mage grew older, he continued to learn and hone his abilities. His natural talent for defensive magic and wisdom beyond his years made Antonidas an ideal candidate for a position on the Council of Six, which he eventually attained. Antonidas proved not only wise and fair, but infinitely regimented in goal to become more knowledgeable. He quickly became one of the dominant voices of Dalaran.

"Archmage Antonidas, Grand Magus of the Kirin Tor. The great city of Dalaran stands once again - a testament to the tenacity and will of its greatest son. Your sacrifices will not have been in vain dearest friend. With Love and Honor." - Jaina Proudmoore
