I loved this event. I did become a zombie on the first day to have a go at spreading the infection but after that I tried to keep myself as safe as possible. I thought the whole event was very very well done and don't think we have seen the end of it either. I do hope we get another one in the future. Have random outbreaks at times.I can understand some of the complaints made. I leveled with a friend a couple of early 40s characters and we were in Stranglethorn Vale the whole time. Was fairly safe and only saw problems once when went into Grom'Gol. Booty Bay was fairly safe when we went their.But then I was going to help boost another friend through Wailing Caverns and found Crossroads a zombie wasteland when I went there. I spent 30-60 mins clearing that place out repeatedly trying to ensure it was safe for her to pick up the quests she needed. I got numerous calls from people wanting me to stop killing them but the way I saw it, I was fighting the scourge and trying to stop the infection. And when I also explained how long the quest givers had been unavailable, they began to understand my actions a little more there too. I got congratulations when I finally succeeded. However, when I noticed NPCs spontaneously becoming infected with no zombies in the area at all (was tracking undead) then I realised that the fight was lost.It was fun trying to deal with infections in the city. Made trying to do anything vary interesting and I wonder how many other people started getting as paranoid as I was.My one complaint was people going out of their way to infect you when they could see you were busy with something else. Killing mobs as part of Isle dailies only to have a zombie come up and attack you is pretty damn annoying, especially when the person responsible finds it so funny. Lot of actions like that were happening. But then you get people like that everywhere. Repeatedly killing them when they keep turning soon teaches them the futility of it after a while.I say Kudos to Blizz and lets see more of this.
