My question: Why o why did Jaina Proudmoore convince people from other human nations to flee to Kalimdor, when those nations have remained fine and healthy?! Why not flee to Kul Tiras, Gilneas (she managed to get there somehow), Stromgarde (was still healthy at that time) or Stormwind of all places? Only the Scourge threat was known. Burning Legion in Kalimdor was unknown at that time.Always been bugging me :-) Thank you for reading!

Because Medivh warned Jaina and Arthas to do so, to avoid the Plague of Undeath. And before that, Medivh had already warned Terenas Menethil (spelling?), Arthas father, but never took the Last Guardian seriously... and see what happened to Lordaeron. Jaina only dis what was obvious to her.

The only way to stop the Burning Legion was to defeat Archimonde, which it seems was only going to happen on Kalimdor. The orcs, humans, and night elves had to unite to pull it off.

@ Meira Fair enough, I can understand why she tried to convince the other nations to flee, seeing as she thought they would be next.That didn't happen. The other nations have remained untouched by the Scourge and Plague. Why haven't they returned home?That whole part of exodus in the game is a bit blurry to my memory. Poorly explained.

That's because Jaina resides in Dalaran. If you noticed Medivh was warning people in the NORTHERN kingdoms.Jaina only took people from Dalaran/Lordaeron with her since those were the areas affected by the Scourge.

As the person above said, only people from the Northern Kingdoms (Jaina from Dalaran and Terenas/Arthas from Lordaeron) were warned by Medivh and those were the only nations victim of the Scourge/ Burning Legion. Alterac had already fallen because of Perenolde's treachery, and Gilneas constructed the Greymane Wall to protect themselves from the Plague of Undeath, and rumors that reached Brann Bronzebeard told that the Naga ravaged the place. And they didn't return because Theramore flourished, being one of the most important Human strongholds.

@ ILikePvPbuthatePvPers No. In game shows brigade troops from the Kul Tiras, Gilneas (and Stromgarde too, if I remember correctly) nations to be part of Jaina's exodus. Only Stormwind didn't participate.

Actually, Jaina is originally from Kul Tiras, an island kingdom that exists between Ironforge and Gilneas. Her father, in fact, was the Admiral of the Kul Tiras navy, and when he came to try and take over her little outpost, Theramore, he took the rest of the Kul Tiras navy with him. Incidentally, however, she was a member of the Kirin Tor. One of the more powerful ones, at that.
