High Priestess Laurena is present at the Cathedral of Light where she met new promising priests who have caught the attention of senior members of the Church of Light with their dedication, and who are worthy to continue their training. In particular by teaching them a spell to protect themselves and their companions from the attacks of those who use the arcane.
Following the Cataclysm, High Priestess Laurena takes care of sending promising priests on missions, more particularly to allow the priest adventurer to obtain unique materials that can only be found in the cursed Shadowfang Keep in Silverpine Forest, as King Varian Wrynn commissioned the royal enchanter Lucan Cordell to create a special weapon for them, the , as recognition of their dedication to the Alliance.
She also takes care of sending them to fight the enemies of the Alliance in Blackrock Depths, and prevent the influence of the Twilight Hammer over the Dark Iron clan, in order to prevent them from recruiting more into their ranks, by burning the books that the Twilight's Hammer distributes.
Before the Storm
She was present at the ceremony at Lion's Rest after the Argus Campaign, where she blessed the troubled King Anduin Wrynn before giving a speech to the gathered crowd, in the same way as the Archbishop Benedictus following the war against the Lich King. Once she was finished, King Anduin continued the speech.
Later, she came to find King Anduin in the Netherlight Temple, anxiously asking him to return with her to Stormwind as his servant Wyll Benton was dying. She accompanied the King through the portal to Stormwind Keep where Genn Greymane was waiting for them, and was later asked to tend to Wyll's body for his funeral, with all the rituals due to someone so close to the Wrynn family.
I trust the Light is with you, <name>. Is there something that I can I help you with?
Do not turn your back on the Light, <class>, it may be the one thing that saves you some day.

I commend your dedication. However, I fear you walk a dangerous path.
You would best serve the Alliance away from the cathedral.

To have given yourself wholly to the Light... you are an example to us all.
- Upon logging in on a boosted priest
- <name>, the Light shines brightly upon you. Come speak with me.
- Laurena preaches that King Varian and Queen Tiffin are together.
- Before the Storm also mentions the ceremony for the deceased of the war against the Lich King. During that ceremony, Archbishop Benedictus gave the speech. As such, Laurena seems to have replaced Benedictus, at least in giving speeches and given her rank, probably as the leader of the Church of the Holy Light as well.
- As Laurena was able to enter and find Anduin in the Netherlight Temple, without being accompanied or invited, she may be a member of the Conclave.
