Zombie plague infects World of Warcaft

No word whether diet includes brains.

With just 20 days until the launch of World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King, the early effects of the undead's looming arrival have manifested as a zombie invasion.

The first sign of trouble was the arrival of the Argent Dawn, who appeared in capital cities throughout Azeroth. Said the Dawn, "The plagued tendrils of the Lich King lurk close." Scary!

Then, the zombies.

The walking dead appeared outside major cities, and players unlucky (or lucky?) enough to come in contact with them were themselves infected with the zombie plague. Players have 10 minutes to find a healer before the plague takes hold. Becoming a zombie isn't as bad as it sound, though. Players are granted a new status bar and zombie abilities, which last until the player is cured by a healer.

And then the zombie crates showed up.

In the Booty Bay area, "Conspicuous Crates" appeared last night that can also infect players. The results, after 10 minutes, are the same as the zombies.

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
