Pained still refused to leave Jaina's side, even when it became apparent that the Horde were approaching Theramore with every intent to destroy it. She participated in its defense, helping with and carrying out the counterattack plans, as well as engaging the Horde soldiers on the field of battle, even fighting toe-to-toe against Baine Bloodhoof. The last she was seen before the Mana Bomb detonated, she was fighting against an orc attempting to flee the city. Jaina discovered her body over the orc's, sword still in her hand.
