Even the most experienced gamer would never underestimate the powers of the Lich King and his Scourge. If the Alliance and the Horde are teaming up to bring him down, the Lich King is definitely going to pull out all his cards and make sure that he stops attackers way before they even touch the Icecrown Citadel. Thus, the Lich King created monstrosities of such immense power that they are considered the Scourge's most destructive and most feared army. Known as a Plague Eruptor, it is capable of causing not only physical destruction, but plague contagion as well. If you happen to see on coming your way, you better have a good gameplan on how to attack them because it's not going to be easy to bring them down! Below are some details about this Undead monstrosity.
Why Are They Dangerous?
A Plague Eruptor is basically like a zombie. It is a reanimated corpse. The difference, however, is that unlike zombies who are weaker and a lot slower, Plague Eruptors are brutally strong and surprisingly fast, given their size and bulk. Not only that, they are violent in nature. Zombies might not attack right away, but don't expect the same treatment from these monsters. They would automatically treat anyone they meet or who impinges on their territory as enemies. So caution is much needed. As if strength and speed wasn't enough, there's one more weapon in this creature's arsenal that will definitely have you skirting them or trying to get far away from them. If you look at these creatures, you'll see that their bodies are covered in perhaps hundreds of oozing, throbbing pustules filled with greenish liquid. These are right on their skin and can explode at any time. Anyone near a Plague Eruptor would immediately be struck with the Lich King's plague if this happens.
Where are They Found?
Most of these monstrosities are found in the Court of Skulls in Dragonblight. Those of harder temperaments and even stronger resolve can kill the mobs of these creatures there. Some can be seen lurching around other areas in Northrend, but their highest concentration is in Dragonblight.
How Do I Fight Them?
I'm not much of a battle tactician and I don't have any experience with these creatures. However, by the looks of it, it would seem that the best tactic for this would be the spank and tank tactic. Attack with all your team's strength, then have your team's tanks take on the most damage, while ranged attackers still plow the monster with spells and arrows (if you have them). This way, a Plague Eruptor can only harm those nearest him (the Tank) and the rest of the team can concentrate on getting the creature down. However, if you factor in the fact that these creatures are of considerable speed, it's going to be a lot harder. Just make sure that you have a battle plan going on and that your gears and armors are all top-notch. Hopefully, you'll be fine.
