I am making sense. You're just choosing not to accept it. That's your fault not mine.
Jaina is not 100. She looks 30, tops. She hasn't had "Decades." She's had years, maybe one decade, but not enough to make her Merlin or Gandalf. I STILL want a source on her being the most powerful mage alive. She's the most powerful Human mage. And one of the most powerful Kirin Tor. Wowpedia says so. But that doesn't really MEAN anything. Humans aren't great mages anyway compared to Highborne or Blood Elves. I'd wager Rommath would flatten her in a Mage Fight.
Also, gameplay mechanics for what's "Instant." Remember, Shamans can Astral Recall too. And Thrall has The Doomhammer which is detrimental to the health of Mages (Or anything else that exists for that matter) who are within a hundred yards of him and he doesn't feel like looking at anymore.
I'm a little slow off the mark, I'm having trouble convincing myself this is really happening. Are you really arguing that Thrall could be beaten by Jaina? I get that people like her (Well, I'm aware of it at least) but this is like saying Black Widow could beat Thor in a fight by putting him in fluffy pink handcuffs.
Stop trying to confuse me with your "It's ice, but it isn't, but it is, but it isn't" routine. Because I'm tired and it might work. The Water Elemental is an elemental. A Mage summons it. Therefore we can safely draw the conclusion that they use their Arcane powers to manipulate elemental energy. Or just plain old manipulation of the world around them. Which would still not result in Frozen Arcane-flavoured cordial.
Like I said Arcane is pure magic. What more do you want. That's how it is.
