I still don't like the new face compared to her old face.The armor upgrade was great, higher resolution, but the face update sucked. It makes her look like a chubby-faced hooker. It sucks they did that to her.The complexion is changed too much, and the face it a little too wide, that is what makes it seem that way. But at least it's not the face used in the Ulduar trailer, holy shit that was terrible.

Laugh, and her boobs. Its like someone stuck catalopes down her shirt. Breasts are usually not completely circular. Oh well. Great article.

Agree. She looks like a stuck-up bitch.

Her face has become rather unpleasant . . . though I explain to people it's due to the stresses of dealing with Arthas as the Lich King . . . maybe she's been drinking or something (and I don't mean mana drinks either). I've heard a few people say she looks like she's on drugs. Could be using too much magic does something weird to your face. Or could be there is plastic surgery in Azeroth. Perhaps one of those messy gnome inventions "facial reconstruction engine" or something.While they could have aged her a little bit (she looked very young before) I think they went too far. She doesn't look serious - she looks snooty and messed up.I wish they could have pretty much kept her old face and just tweaked it enough so the resolution is better, so she looks a few years older and a bit more serious, but not like a completely different person.

Actually, I liked the model they used in the Ulduar trailer, it was pretty and it gave Jaina a more mature air

I'm sorry people but just what the hell is wrong with Jaina needing a member of the opposite sex in her life? This isn't a freaking measure of her value of an individual and darn-it I'm tired of every freaking feminist out their thinking it is! Jaina is a human being not Wonder Woman. She has a personality. She has flaws. Just because Jaina is among the highest caliber of spell casters it doesn't mean she has everything figured out! Some people need a companion to help give them perspective or to balance something in their life. There are countless reasons for countless situations for countless people to surround themselves with different relationships. Could she get by without one? Sure! Does that mean she is going to live her ideal life? Who knows? I'd rather sit back and enjoy the story than use it as a narcissistic extension of how i think everyone else should be!There is nothing wrong with having needs.

@Scooter:You have to understand how loaded the sentence "[She] needs a man" is. Humans need other humans, yes, no one here is disagreeing-- but the assertion that Jaina "needs a man" is tied up with all kinds of notions about women not being independent, not having power, not being able to make their own decisions, and having their fates bound up intimately with a man's, and ultimately being subordinate or secondary to that man's needs/wants/desires/anything. So while Jaina deserves to have love and companionship, she also deserves to have her own story and her own destiny that is not dependent or subordinate to some man, which is unfortunately what is happening in canon. (i.e. Jaina only exists to cry over Arthas)

Well, in Blizzard's defense, the playmate-on-Xanax look is really in this year.
