Divergent Courses is the third and final interlude of the Human Campaign: The Scourge of Lordaeron. It follows The Culling and precedes The Shores of Northrend


The interlude begins with Jaina surveying the wreckage of Stratholme, as the surviving villagers pile the corpses of the dead onto pyres.



Uther runs toward Jaina.
  • IconSmall Uther.gif Uther: Jaina! Jaina Proudmoore!
  • IconSmall Uther.gif Uther: Ah, Jaina. I thought I might find you here. Where has he gone, girl? Where has Arthas taken the fleet?
  • IconSmall Jaina.gif Jaina: He came to me before he left. I pleaded with him not to go. I told him it sounded like a trap!
  • IconSmall Uther.gif Uther: Where!?
  • IconSmall Uther.gif Uther: Damn that boy! I've got to inform King Terenas about this. Don't be too hard on yourself, girl. You had nothing to do with this... slaughter.
Uther leaves. The Prophet flies towards Jaina and turns into his human form.
  • IconSmall Medivh.gif The Prophet: The dead in this land might lie still for the time being, but don't be fooled. Your young prince will find only death in the cold north.
  • IconSmall Jaina.gif Jaina: You! Arthas is only doing what he believes is right!
  • IconSmall Medivh.gif The Prophet: Commendable as that may be, his passions will be his undoing. It falls to you now, young sorceress. You must lead your people across the sea, to the distant land of Kalimdor. Only there can you combat the shadow and save this world from the flame.
End of Interlude.
