While World of Warcraft’s infamous Corrupted Blood Plague incident is far behind, a new debuff in Dragonflight repeats history.
While World of WarcraftThe infamous corrupt blood pandemic is well known, dragonflight, the game’s latest expansion, has (accidentally) replicated it to some degree. The Corrupted Blood incident that took place in 2005 was due to this Impressive‘s first-ever raid, in which a boss’ contagious debuff combined with a bug led to an unintended “pandemic” – which has since even been the subject of study for real epidemiologists wanting to study how actual pandemics spread.

In fact, a big part of what can make long-lived MMOs interesting is their ability to sometimes break out of every storyline or in-game event and put the community first.
