- With each breath, I can sense that you are one step closer to death. — Saeryn Dusksorrow
Pestilence is a death Knight ability learned at level 56. It allows the death knight to spread Frost Fever and Blood Plague from one target to other nearby targets within 10 yards. It costs 1 Blood Rune to cast.
- Hotfix (2009-04-15): "Death knights casting Reaping will no longer cause Pestilence to convert 2 Blood Runes into Death Runes."
- Patch 3.1.0 (14-Apr-2009): Does no damage and has only one rank.
- Patch 3.0.8 (2009-01-20): No longer has a 10 seconds cooldown.
