I thought the War of the Spider said that they were immune to the plague but could be raised as undead.

They are immune to the Plague (though I highly doubt they're immune to the Blight Plague...). That was the big problem for Ner'zhul, he couldn't just disease them all, he had to actually send the Scourge (such as it was at that time) against them. I imagine the Dreadlords helped as well.



Man, so much they could've done with the remaining Nerubians...all we got was 1 named NPC, two guards and 4 quests.

What is the difference between the Plague and the Blight Plague?

By the "Plague" he means the Scourge's plague, and by the "Blight Plague" he means the Forsaken's plague (which they call blight).

The Plague kills people and makes them into zombies, while the Blight Plague kills both people and zombies (often disintegrating them).

Chris Metzen: Isn't Kul Tiras burning in slag? ...from, uh, Blood of Our Fathers? ...No?

The Green Shirt Guy: No, it survived, and, in fact, it is- was around off-screen in vanilla WoW and through Wrath of the Lich King.

Chris Metzen: Right, of course. Uh. Yeah, Fargo, what's up with that?

I see. Not sure why he mentioned the Blight Plague though when I was referring to the War of the Spiders.

It's only tangentally relevant. Just felt like saying it, eh?

The Lich King released the Plague first on the Nerubians and when it didn't work on them, that's when he sent in the fledgeling Scourge in to make actual war with them. The Nerubians were never successfully plagued meaning any crypt fiends or lords you see have never been Plagued.

I thought so. Some stories have it backwards (war first, plague second) so I was confused.

What stories are you referring to? I've never heard it the other way until you said it up there.

I think Lands of Mystery had a version where it was reversed.

How do I get my own private slice of SoL like Rolandius? Do I need to misconstrue everyone's posts or organize species in illogical ways?

No one should ever emulate Rolandius.

Only do, there is no try.

Question:

Was the Curse of Flesh magical, a virus, or what?
