Okay, Norrath needs a prescription…but not for the plague. Yes, your local healer is prescribing what’s known in medical circles as a “chill pill.”
First off let’s clarify one thing. The plague does not cause interrupts. Not for spell casting, not for tradeskilling, not for anything.
Now don’t get me wrong, I find it damn annoying. I hate looking green. I hate looking like an idiot when I scratch myself in the middle of a fight. I hate coughing on mobs before I attack them.
But that’s the idea. I pretty much planned to ignore this plague thing, because frankly it just didn’t interest me that much. But now I really want it cured.
Give SOE credit, this event is working. By making it so troublesome they are drawing people into the storyline who might otherwise have passed it by.
So let’s go out there and end the darn thing before another vendor spits phlegm on me.
What can we do? Well, a person in this thread saved a traveler from plagued creatures and got a cool reward. But on a bigger scale, this thread gives some insight into the main quest which appears to involve both crafting and adventuring.
Let's relax with the “OMG my character is green and I’m going to play WOW now!” and try to have some fun with it – some times things can annoy you in a good way.
If you're still in a bad mood here's some medical humor:
Doctor: What's the status of the boy who swallowed the quarter?
Nurse: No change yet.Okay that was corny. But how about this? Forum member Itazzy posted this hilarious screen shot of the statue of Queen Antonia Bayle vomiting. Tell me that’s not funny.
Now if only there was a quest to find the cure for lag in Lavastorm that would be great too. Oh, and the mysterious sickness mobs get called, “Systemic Disappearing into Walls-itis.” Oops, sorry - this cough is making me cranky.
