@Poggg...That word doesn't mean what you think it means.http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/MarySueBe educated. Since so far she has not had reality bend to her, I highly doubt she is a Sue.@TabasaI do agree that it felt a little clunky, her introduction into the greater WoW universe. However, I do not think this is any fault except the length of the time we are actually shown in Nagrand. I mean, heck. We technically get more scene with Anduin and Baine then with Aggra and Thrall. I do think it could have been handled better, but I will point out that the reasons he probably hasn't shown herself before hand is a couple big reasons. One was that strangely, in Outlands we got few big Shaman dealing with the elements there, and none which are expanded on in any sense. The elemental stuff was pretty much shoved into one area of Nagrand. Basically, we never had to concentrate on that element of Outlands before. Now, we do, and so different things are highlighted.But with that said, I DO think that Golden did a great job of setting up her character. You know how she actsm you know some very key things about her.Also, I very highly doubt this was just to break up the Jaina/Thrall ship. And I shipped them. As a fellow J/T shipper to another, please for the love of all that is good GET OVER IT. They never were, and though it was fun to think about, they probably never WOULD have been. It would have taken a hella lot of finagaling storywise to get it to work, and Warcraft is not exactly going to be writing a romance novel anytime soon. And it would have taken something novel-length to get it to work.The reason they got it in now was to expand on it in the coming expansion. They wanted this to be part of Thrall's story, they wanted him to have a mate and maybe a child, someone to support him and who wouldn't be another major worry to him. They wanted him to have something for himself: Love. So please, can we stop the Jaina/Thrall butt hurt already? PLEASE?Note: If you were not a Jaina/Thrall shipper and simply commenting from a stand-back standpoint, sorry. I just have had too many people bashing Aggra because it gets in the way of their OTP. I am a little sick of it.
