Plague eruptors are a type of powerful zombie that can mainly be encountered in Northrend. One of the experiments of the Lich King introduced during the war in Northrend, plague eruptors are designed to spread horror and chaos across the world of the living. These hyper-violent, incredibly strong, and deceptively fast walking corpses have quickly earned a reputation as the most destructive of the Scourge army. The most terrifying weapon in the eruptors' arsenal are the myriad pulsing nodules that dominate their rotting skin and from which the undead plague festers and bursts, ensuring that the eruptors spread the Lich King's apocalyptic contagion wherever they go.
