Warcraft author reveals how Jaina was accused of pedophilia

Writer Christie Golden commented on the recent renaming of the “Twin Concubines” boss from World of Warcraft: Shadowlands to “Empyrean Twin” due to the incorrect original name. On Twitter, she suggested the change was due to misinterpretation of the words by fans. She also recalled a similar situation where the players mistakenly accused Jaina (Proudmoore) of pedophilia.

Christy Golden Christie Golden:

“There seems to be confusion between 'consort' and 'concubine'. It was reminiscent of the time when people accused Jaina of pedophilia because she gave Anduin [who was about 15 years old at the time of the event – approx. ed.] stone return to his living room. The living room is the room where guests are received. I think the fans mistook her for a boudoir. “

The name changes were discovered by users on the World of Warcraft: Shadowlands test servers. In addition to the Twin Concubines boss, the developers renamed the Big Love Rocket mount to X-45 Heartbreaker.

Previously, the authors decided to remove “inappropriate references” from World of Warcraft. The reason for this decision was the scandal due to discrimination against women in the company.
