    The event is just as annoying as I expected.

    Back when it first happened over a decade and a half ago is was a novelty. Fun, because the context: No one had ever really experienced that.

    But now? Now it's just an annoying speedbump for when you're trying to do something that you actually enjoy in the game.

    Have plans to assemble a squad and just kill people waiting for rares as most of them are on alts

    Most of WoW nerds. Do you have anything to back it up with? I though so. Stay in your moms basement, edgelord.

    You could do that for years without anyone bothering you. Give the people who like this kind of stuff a week to enjoy it. It's not much.

    Rather underwhelming actually, unless people make a zombie raid, it has no chance of doing anything. Alone, all you can do is kill low levels, NPCs and AFK people.

    Also having no flying while dead in capitals really puts a damper on trying anything, the run back is too long. And the dispel bots every 50 meters that execute any zombie in range make sure it does not spread, no matter what.

    So all in all, AB went super safe, to the point where nothing really happens. I did have some fun by interrupting people trying to allahu akbar with shackle undead.

    It's both boring and irritating. I wish I could turn it off and just play the game.

    There's no compulsory questline for it. Just go there. The questline is only there if you want currency for killing him.

    I haven't been infected yet, but I keep getting randomly flagged for PvP which is annoying as hell, despite having it and warmode off.

    Well I finished the questline on my main. I might get the achievment on some of my more valuable alts as well, but there isn't much to do otherwise.

    I haven't turned on war mode since the event began and I've been attacked by ghouls, flagged by setting foot in Orgrimmar, and been attacked by Alliance raids Icecrown because I didn't notice I had been flagged.
    The most difficult thing for people to do is objectively look at something they don't like and be able to accept that it is not bad, that other people like it, and if it was changed to the way they'd like it that other people would not like it and want it changed back. The second most is to receive something they didn't want or ask for and be grateful for it, not immediately demand what they wanted instead.

    The only zombies you are required to kill are normal NPC scourge attacking Darkshire, no player scourge involved.

    there is player scourge though if you are "lucky" enough to play on a server with dedicated trolls who literally run on foot to Crossroads or Darkshire, while turning npc's into zombies along the way, for the sole reason of making that part of the quest extremely annoying to do. there are no argent healers in either of these towns at least not that I have seen, so if you are infected? you re turning. killing yourself to go back to keep doing the quest results in both repair bills AND resurrection cooldown timer which slows you down even more. trying to avoid the wrong zombies is all but impossible. oh and when you are turned into zombie - mobs you have to kill for the quest become friendly to you, so to go back to killing them, you HAVE to respawn.

    it is still possible to finish that leg of the quest, but its extremely tedious and VERY annoying.

    autoflag should have never been a part of this event. they should have kept it to warmode only.

    Not a fan of anything that enables PVP flag surreptitiously but given that nothing really happened after.... meh... (also, stay off my lawn)
    Same. Passed through Orgrimmar to reach Icecrown, got flagged without noticing, and was a sitting duck for Alliance camping the rares.

    Ya'll must play on some unimaginative servers. So far, it's near impossible to do the anniversary trivia because 1) opposing faction is camping the portal zone in and killing people on sight and 2) zombies are infecting everyone at the trivia NPCs. I thought I was being smart by taking a gryphon from SW to BB (going to CoT the long way), but PVP flag remained in transit, so arrived in BB still flagged. Zombies all over BB, even on the boat to Ratchet.

    Literally everyone who was clustered together to kill Patchwerk in the cave in Icecrown was infected by a zombie and, thanks to all of us being turned before Patchwerk died, none of us got any loot. PvP flags persist through death as well, so many who resed were immediately cut down by opposing faction. Super fun. /s Can't even defend yourself against the zombies since hitting one flags you.

    Look, I enjoyed the previous iteration of this event, but it didn't PvP flag you and I don't recall it extending beyond Goldshire at most. Most of the trolling was limited to the bank and auction houses, which just meant you had to go to another city for awhile. Thanks to everything being concentrated in SW and Org and the portals in other city hubs being removed, it's not realistic to avoid either especially as they're essential to completing Death's Rising.

    How about blizzard doesn't inflict everyone with playstyles that only a few enjoy?

    At the bare minimum this event should have been locked to war mode. At best it should be a specific NPC you talk to to manually opt in to the event. Letting players grief and troll like this was a horrible design descision.

    Didn’t see any, did the new quests, flew about org got bored and logged out..

  17. #77
    Got way to much work going on and this event doesnt give me anything I want, so no reason realy to log in that much.

    Quite tame to be honest. I think the nerfs to the event from the PTR have ruined it.

    A lot of potential for great shenanigans, but healers everywhere makes anything that is uncoordinated almost impossible.
