The Scourge is a vast army of the undead created by the Lich King — the being formerly known as the orc shaman Ner'zhul. Under the control of the Burning Legion, the Scourge's mission is to spread terror and destruction across the world in anticipation of the Burning Legion's inevitable invasion. The Undead Scourge quickly became the dominant power on the continent of Northrend, having subdued the native subterranean Nerubian Empire.
It has, however, lent forces to the dreadlords Tichondrius and Malganis. Allied to, the Burning Legion, its sole purpose is to pave the way for Archimonde and Kil'jaeden to enter Azeroth unimpeded. The Undead Scourge's mission is to destroy the North Alliance, a human and elven faction who guard the precious Book of Medivh, which is used to summon the Burning Legion.

Location & Allies
- The Undead Scourge begins with forces in Northrend, an isolated frozen continent on the northern end of the world, Scholomance a hidden settlement on an island south of Stratholme in the heart of the North Alliance lands that can prove vital for your goals.Their main seat of power, the Frozen Throne, is on the northwest of the continent.
- The Burning Legion
- The Burning Legion income is quite low at the start but, can grow very quickly after both great demons are summoned, and he can also divide the creep farming of Northrend.
- Starts with 3 control points Alterac ruins (15 gold), Drak´tharon Keep (20 gold), Twisting Nether (50 gold).
- The Burning Legion Forces will begin divided into 2 groups, the first is in Alterac in Northern kingdoms West of Scholomance, and the second on Drak´tharon Keep in Northrend, east of the Fronzen Throne.
Pros & Cons
