It Ends With a Whimper

As of noon yesterday, the plague is no more. Well, the zombies are gone, as are the infected crates, roaches, and people. The floating Necropolises are still there, ever a reminder that Arthas is approaching.

It was almost anticlimatic. Yet the fact, that Azeroth was turned upside down in five days, disrupting quests, AH sales, dailies, remains a memory of gaming I’ll never forget. IN spite of my own frustrations at times, I thought this was one of the best things to ever happen.

I’m looking forward to more, hopefully I’ll make it to 70 before then…


It started with a crate in Booty Bay. A small wooden box, on the dock, as you wait for the boat to take you to your next destination. People who opened it, became infected. If they weren’t cured within 10 minutes, they became zombies. 

Infected roaches began showing up in Orgrimmar, Undercity, and Silvermoon. Kill one and you get infected. 

Now, the full scale invasion of Arthas and the scourge has begun in earnest. Necropolis’ in all the major cities have appeared (see pictures). Portals have opened up, unleashing the undead. Zombies are rampant. Bodies litter the ground by the hundreds. The Argent Dawn is healing; but the infection is becoming harder to cure. What happens next is anyone’s guess. 

Welcome to Warcraft, where Azeroth is being turned inside out. I’ll be there, fighting the scourge, what about you?
