One thing to remember in Azeroth: Nature despises undeath.Allow me to rephrase: Nature does Not deny undeath.Undeath has existed probably as long as Azeroth itself. The Titans might have done everything they could to put it under control. Yet we do see the undead here and there, from time to time. The massive raising of the undead came only with the Lich King. Indeed, he's the creation of the Burning Legion. But, isn't it strange that the dragons tolerated him for more than 10 years with clear knowledge of his existence and work. Even after his tampering in Dragonblight, the dragons were not particularly concerned.My interpretation is firstly, undeath requires control and cannot be eliminated. Lich King was such a controlling factor. Secondly, undeath exists for some reason and the massive undeath existed for a damn good reason.Objectively, what did Lich King the 1st's Scourge do? They allowed Archimonde to re-enter Azeroth. And, most Scourge forces sit quietly while Archimonde was convincing himself he's invincible. This resulted Archimonde's demise and in turn, severely weakened the Burning Legion for the first time in eons.Why would the dragons or anyone else let such a perfect opportunity slip away?My logic applies to the Forsakens as well. Despite Sylvanas' new plague and aggression, they are under control, by their own limits, the Alliance countermeasures and others (Argent Crusade and Ebon Blade death knights are still there). Their continuing existence may be for a damn good reason, too. We just have to wait and see.(To re-iterate my previous hypothesis: the massive undeath was a difficult choice made by someone as a tool to fight the inevitable comeback of Old Gods.)
