I wonder how many parents have read the first paragraph of articles like that and banned their kids from playing the game?

It wouldn't surprise me if someone somewhere was that clueless. There's always one.

Jesus! Soon there'll be a WoW awareness gig to raise funds for the victims of Hakkar

So how is this different than the EQ2 live event plague from the begining of the year? Except with that there were server quests that needed to be completed to cure it?

Are NPCs and Mobs affected and capable of spreading it as well like in EQ2?

It's a bug, not a world event.

I've never played WOW but it would be funny to login just to spread the plague to a few new servers.

Aren't the other servers getting it also? I would have assumed that there are players and guilds on each server that would spread it on purpose for a laugh.

Maybe the other players are a bunch of wimps who don't fancy getting killed just to take out some damned blood god. Or who just can't cut it when they try.

Yeah it pretty much effected any server with a mature population (ie. one with players capable of reaching Hakkar).

Some were hit to a greater degree, either because they had more high level characters or because people started spreading it deliberately. Or both.

Hakkar is bloody difficult to take down. All the guilds that can do it on our server are probably unlikely to worry about it since they can get better loot elsewhere.
