WoW Week: Wrath of the Lich King, day 4

If you thought exploring the galactic weirdness of The Outlands was rough, wait until you set foot on the most dangerous continent yet. Northrend is the source of the Undead Scourge, the heart of darkness in the world of Azeroth.

The inspiration of the Scourge’s architecture lies in the ruined catacombs of the Nerubians, sentient arachnids long since conquered (and promptly resurrected) by the Lich King. Now controlled by the Scourge and the mysterious Forgotten Ones, this subterranean zone was left untouched during Arthas’ battles with the Nerubians of old - so expect instances and plenty of loot. You’ll also be able to visit the few remaining living Nerubians in the Old Kingdom, where the Dwarves are attempting to keep the entrance of the city shut as protection from the Undead.
