No healer or potion could ever hope to undo the damage brought on by this foulest of the undead. Many warriors left Tristram emotionally scarred. Others were not so lucky. The Lord of Terror himself would no doubt cower before these unholy monstrosities. These lumbering abominations that dared to break the sacred video game code of honor.
And so, let us remember the almighty Black Death. The neon zombie whose attack permanently reduced the HP of its victims. Yes, PERMANENTLY. Let that sink in for a while.
Blizzard pretends that their new Inferno mode will be hard. Inferno's Act 4 Final Boss wets himself at the mere mention of the legendary Black Death.
May they one day return and remind us of the true meaning of fear.
