Starting the second week and leading into Shadowlands, you’ll be visited by a dark figure of mysterious origins whose presence agitates the Scourge. Working together, you’ll help the Argent Crusade take down this harbinger from the realms of Death who threatens life on Azeroth. Completing “Only Shadows Remain” will give you access to even more Daily Quests, increasing your earning potential for rewards before Death Rising ends.
A shipment of crates have been delivered to Orgrimmar and Stormwind, and reports indicate that anyone who interacts with them becomes infected. Make sure to avoid them and—if you can’t resist peeking inside—know that it is only a matter of time before you turn.
No one is safe from the blight, and the monstrosities it creates are a threat to both the Horde and Alliance. If you succumb to the Scourge you will be turned into a zombie and can attack your newfound foes with several abilities that aim to maim and infect those who you used to stand with in life.
Zombified players no longer are tied to their factions and are allies with members of the Scourge regardless of their allegiance to the Horde or Alliance in life. They can communicate with each other, but are no longer able to communicate with their former friends and are hostile.
