Witch Doctor Zum'rah is a level 49 elite sand troll found in Zul'Farrak. Zum'rah is friendly at first, but when you move near to him he will turn hostile.
The powerful loa Bwonsamdi watches over the spirits of the Darkspear trolls, but many of the Sandfury tribe's fallen members are offered no such protection after death. These tortured spirits obey Zum'rah, a cruel witch doctor who uses his dark magic to force the city's dead into unending service.
The key to victory is to kill him fast as he will spawn more and more adds during the fight.
It is possible to aggro the graves accidentally so you should not stand near them after engaging Zum'rah. It is also possible that you can prevent the adds from spawning by stunlocking him. It is also recommended that you take out the totem that he drops.
A lot of groups practice opening the graves near him on purpose. If you open the first 5 or 6 graves, not many Zul'Farrak Zombies will spawn, 1 or 2 max. However, if the group doesn't have time to do this, keep in mind that the zombies are fearable and encourage priests/warlocks/paladins to use it.

Where to start? Well, somebody would say all the way back to Warcraft I (aka Warcraft: Orcs & Humans or the First War), or maybe Warcraft II (aka Tides of Darkness or the Second War up to and including Wrath of the Lich King, Warcraft III is the best place to start. Also, this game then elicits more interesting questions. For instance, how Illidan Stormrage became so hated or where the Scourge started. You will learn all the history and geography of the Warcraft with our help and dedication.
