No, Alexstrasza was meant to be a boss fight, but got cut due to time release. Jarod isn't even mentioned in Evil path, which is kinda the only thing I don't like about it. In the first post there is a full Sentinel tech tree, it makes it obvious that Mountain Giants and Chimeras will appear.
I did see that tech tree. It will be interesting to see if anything is added to it in Version 2.0, but possibly not. Yeah I know Jarod isn't mentioned, but that's just my theory on what happened to him. He had a wife Shalassyr who died during the War of the Ancients. Maybe Azshara killed her, then killed Jarod so he didn't try to avenge her. We probably won't find out, but that's just my personal theory on what happened to him in the Highborne story.

I'm trying to think of where that Alextrasza boss fight would have been, had it been included. I know it was in Chapter 9 somewhere, but where?

Another thing, I remember the cutscene in chapter 1 or 2, where Malfurion, Tyrande and Cenarius banish the Highborne. The interlude Path of the Exiled could actually be about them. We know those Highborne would become the High Elves and eventually Blood Elves, so they might appear in the Campaign as well. Even Kath'ranis Remar is a Blood Elven name, so they might show up, to ally with the Night Elves perhaps.
That's such a cool theory man! Nice.

One character we haven't talked about much is Medivh. I find it interesting that he is in independent forces, rather than the Night Elves and their Allies section. It will be interesting to see if he has some secret agenda, but probably not
Why didn't medivh kill malfurion when he had he chance?

Alexstrasza was never meant to be a boss fight, I guess. She and Nozdormu flew away from the World Tree in order to push the invading forces of the Legion, Highborne and the Naga away from the World Tree. So Alexstrasza died off-screen, while Nozdormu backed away in order to gather all the surviving mortal forces of Azeroth with hope to have a chance of combating the Dark Titan Malfurion. Having Alexstrasza as a boss fight in the Bad story was planned, but was cut due to a story being rushed.

It isn't exactly clear. Originally she was going to be a boss battle in Chapter 9 (Her fighting blood empowered Magtheridon would be pretty cool tbh), but it would probably feel a bit random, so instead she was killed offscreen. My theory is that Kil'Jaeden fought and killed her on his way to the World Tree

I once talked with Fallen Star (He is a romanian just like me) He told me that the last chapter is incomplete, and probably chapter 9 but still, They are great, I hope 1 day turnro will update them.

When did he have a chance? In which chapter/interlude? Because I don't remember anything about it.
In the interlude Lying in Deceit, where he first introduces himself to Malfurion, and in Shattered Skies, after the explosion.
Any chapter before he absorbed ysera heart, in terms of stats, if not, he could have killed him when he entered the temple
I'm not quite sure, but possibly he didn't think Malfurion was that big of a threat at the time, and perhaps he was also overconfident in his abilities, so he thought he would win when he fought Furion outside Nordrassil

I agree with that. That's my opinion too. He thought Malfurion wouldn't become much of a threat to the Night Elves and hadn't killed him, but rahter kept warning him about his actions.

My theory is that in that interlude, and later in chapter 4, he hoped he could be turned to fight the Legion, remember the Legion was still at full power, so Medivh new he needed all the help he could get. And later in chapter 6, he needed him to fight the Naga, and Shahraz. He hoped that they would destroy each other, so a win win situtation. But when Malfurion defeated both Shahraz and Naga, Medivh was already busy with awakening Ysera. Who knows, it might be expained in the good part, or might not.

It will be interesting to see what his relationship with Malfurion is like in the Sentinel path. He may not play a huge role, but we'll see him, maybe in the interlude Battle Preparations. Will he be nice to Malfurion, or maybe still suspicious of him

--

Here are some of my boss battle predictions

1. Malfurion, Illidan and Tyrande vs Kil'Jaeden (this one is obvious, and many other have also predicted this)

2. Malfurion, Illidan and Tyrande vs Azshara (after Illidan breaks free of her, or she reveals herself)

3. Malfurion and other Night Elf heroes vs Kazzak (he never fought any Night Elves in the Highborne campaign)

4. Tyrande vs Eredon (Xavius may also be involved, Malfurion may or may not have been saved, but we can be certain these two will fight, plus they have already met before, in Jeopardy of the Horde, so it will be a "you...I remember you" moment)

5. Illidan and Tyrande vs Jaraxxus (these two should reunite at some point, and maybe join together to fight a common enemy, (maybe in Final Conflicts) and this is also where Illidan and maybe the rest of the Highborne ally with the Sentinels)

6. Malfurion, Tyrande, Faradrella and Jarod vs Magtheridon (this is an optional quest, maybe in Cries of the Aspects, where they discover another fountain of power, and Magtheridon appears, and empowers himself, and they fight him)

7. Something involving The Exiled One, Balnazzar, and Varimathras

8. Something involving Nozdormu (HIGHLY UNLIKELY, but I think it would be cool to see as we didn't get a boss battle with him the the Highborne path)

I am thinking sentinels, malfurion, highborne, and very very unlikely naga vs kil jaeden

Hi everyone! As part of working on the Good story-line, it gives the opportunity to go over existing units and heroes to tweak them in order to make more better balanced and provide better utility. One hero that will undergo quite a number of changes for the final version of Malfurion's Quest is Jarod Shadowsong.


Heroic Strike

The current version of this spell deals damage to an enemy unit within melee range while also healing Jarod for a small amount. Logically, the secondary healing effect doesn't make any sense, and will be replaced with a stun effect instead. The damage of Heroic Strike will also be increased for the higher levels of the spell.
Battle Shout

This spell, which silences enemy units around Jarod, isn't very useful compared to Silence and doesn't fit the hero well. Battle Shout will instead be replaced with Thunder Clap, which allows Jarod to become a more powerful melee fighter. Thunder Clap serves as a placeholder spell for now and is subject to change depending on testing feedback.
Command Aura

This aura currently provides an increase to nearby friendly units attack and movement speed. Due to balance reasons, the affects of this aura has been changed to provide a damage bonus to nearby melee units instead. This compliments Tyrande's Trueshot Aura, and will increase the base attack of Jarod, Sentries, Druids of the Claw, Stalkers, and Mountain Giants.
