On October 23, 2008, 13 years ago, the Zombie Infestation started, leading into the Second Scourge Invasion.

0. Zombie Infestation Survival Guide
Found in the rotting diary of Eric Farrington in the dead city of Andorhal…
My beloved home, Andorhal, has fallen victim to an evil plague. I have witnessed the horrors of the Scourge firsthand, and seen unimaginable things. Death was not granted to my loved ones. Instead, everyone I’ve ever known has turned into monsters. Monsters of unfathomable, relentless viciousness!
I thought naught of a few illnesses, a few fevers. We continued to ship out crates of grain to Lordaeron, and we weren’t fearful of this new sickness -- we were confident our healers could handle it. I know now that was foolish, blind.
The denizens of Andorhal turned into vile zombies of the Scourge. These monstrosities no longer held any thoughts or abilities from their mortal lives. Most certain of all, they readily used new powers we had never seen before to further spread the disease and hasten the destruction of the city.
I have been hiding for two days in the sewers, but I must venture out soon to find supplies or possibly a way out of the city to the forests.
Help me, I’ve been bitten!
I cannot believe I was foolish enough to think I could sneak past all of them on the streets. The zombies are everywhere now, and Andorhal is only a shell of its former glory, a sad and twisted remnant of my beautiful home.
I can already feel the disease taking me. May the light bless me as I go to be with my family and friends once again. I’m not sure how much longer I can keep my sanity. I am weak. I hunger, and must eat…
And so it began. Over the next 5 days, the
spread across Azeroth infecting NPCs and PCs alike. On the 4th day, the
Second Scourge Invasion
began. NPC Argent Healers battled the plague with the Light while apothecaries struggled to find a cure with science and infected Bosses kept the Heroes of Azeroth busy in the lead-up to
Wrath of the Lich King
. The first Scourge Invasion led into the opening of the Naxxramas raid in which we first came face to face with
as a raid boss. A third version of the Scourge Invasion, heavily inspired by the Second Scourge Invasion, preceded the launch of
. Incidentally, in Shadowlands we are once again facing
as a raid boss.
This World Event saw many, if not all, players turned into zombies - even in their forum avatars - and included World Bosses, Raid Bosses, quests, and token drops that led the story into the opening of Northrend, Wrath of the Lich King, and many of the events that have influenced our adventures in the Shadowlands.
Bornakk's forum post continued:
The Scourge Invasion is upon us! Prepare yourself for the deadly onslaught of the Scourge, unleashed upon Azeroth and all its denizens.
How do I become a zombie?
Disease-infected crates are scattered throughout the cities of Azeroth, spreading a sickness that transforms its sufferers into zombies. And of course, when zombies attack, their victims can be afflicted by the disease as well.
How do you stop being a zombie?
The disease can be cured by other players who can cast ‘Cure Disease’ or by special healer NPCs in the cities. Once the disease has run its course and a character has become a zombie, the only cure is death.
Can I become a zombie again?
As a zombie, what are some things I can/cannot do?
You can no longer cast the spells/abilities that you had as a normal character, and formerly friendly NPCs now consider you an enemy. You can, however, cast new, unique zombie spells.
Anything else I should know while being a zombie?
As a zombie, you are part of a special faction that is friendly with all zombies and can converse with them, regardless of whether they were part of the Horde or Alliance in their mortal existences.
Save this...who knows when we may need it...
