I found out while trying to finish up Swamp of Sorrows that it was possible to create a self-sustaining zombie horde there due to the rate of guard respawn. Leveling during that period was absolutely awful, especially if you were trying to push it to get close to the first wave of Northrend raiding/leveling. I still maintain that Blizz cut the whole experiment short when the griefing got completely out of hand. It was their own fault: the zombie explosion made mass infections too easy, Blizz completely forgot that guards were a higher level than the players in the zone (making skull-level zombie armies) and there was no way to skirt the corners of the event. If there was no zombie explosion, if the zombies were low level, if there was a trinket that summoned a healer to you... Event would've been great and maybe we would've gotten a conclusion. As it was, it went for a few days, getting worse and worse and then mysteriously disappeared (replaced with the original invasion) because... let's say a wizard did it.That being said, now that my characters are max level, I do hope that Blizz tries things like this again, only learning from their past mistakes.
