To create a new character, in keeping with the storyline of previous Warcraft games, players must choose between the opposing factions of the Alliance or the Horde; Pandaren, which were added in Mists of Pandaria, do not commit to a faction until after the starting zone is completed. Characters from the opposing factions can perform rudimentary communication (most often just "emotes"), but only members of the same faction can speak, mail, group and join guilds. The player selects the new character's race, such as orcs or trolls for the Horde, or humans or dwarves for the Alliance.[13] Players must select the class for the character, with choices such as mages, warriors, and priests available.[14] Most classes are limited to particular races.
World of Warcraft was first announced by Blizzard at the ECTS trade show in September 2001.[43] Released in 2004, development of the game took roughly 4–5 years, including extensive testing. The 3D graphics in World of Warcraft use elements of the proprietary graphics engine originally used in Warcraft III.[43] The game was designed to be an open environment where players are allowed to do what they please.[44] Quests are optional and were designed to help guide players, allow character development, and to spread characters across different zones to try to avoid what developers called player collision.[45] The game interface allows players to customize appearance and controls, and to install add-ons and other modifications.[46]

Deep within Blackrock Mountain, the black dragon Nefarian conducted twisted experiments with the blood of other dragonflights. Intent on seizing the entire area for his own, he recruited the remaining Dark Horde, a rogue army that embraced the demonic bloodlust of the old Horde. These corrupt orcs, trolls, and other races battled against Ragnaros and the Dark Iron dwarves for control of the mountain. Nefarian created the twisted chromatic dragons and a legion of other aberrations in his bid to form an army powerful enough to control Azeroth and continue the legacy of his infamous father, Deathwing the Destroyer. Nefarian was vanquished by the heroes from the Horde and the Alliance.

World of Warcraft takes place in a 3D representation of the Warcraft universe that players can interact with through their characters. The game world initially consisted of the two continents in Azeroth: Kalimdor and the Eastern Kingdoms. Four separate expansions later added to the game's playable area the realms of Outland and Draenor and the continents of Northrend and Pandaria. As a player explores new locations, different routes and means of transportation become available. Players can access "flight masters" in newly discovered locations to fly to previously discovered locations in other parts of the world.[27] Players can also use boats, zeppelins, or portals to move from one continent to another. Although the game world remains relatively similar from day to day, seasonal events reflecting real world events, such as Halloween,[28] Christmas, Children's Week,[25] Easter, and Midsummer have been represented in the game world. Locations also have variable weather including, among other things, rain, snow, and dust storms.[27]
The Corrupted Blood plague incident was one of the first events to affect entire servers. Patch 1.7 saw the opening of Zul'Gurub, the game's first 20-player raid dungeon where players faced off against a tribe of trolls. Upon engaging the final boss, players were stricken by a debuff called "Corrupted Blood" which would periodically sap their life. The disease was passed on to other players simply by being near infected players. Originally this malady was confined within the Zul'Gurub instance, but it made its way into the outside world by way of hunter pets or warlock minions that contracted the disease.
08 nov Propuesta de parches/progreso #NoChanges Hola a todos chicos! Soy Xokas! Un streamer de classic. Os voy a comentar un poquillo lo que opino tanto acerca de la DEMO como acerca de la progresión que han dicho que van a tener en la Classic. He visto bastantes quejas etc acerca de que la demo es una basura, que es injugable, que si tiene LFR o nosequé.. a ver chicos, es una DEMO. La han sacado a trancas y a barrancas porque ya bastante tienen con BFA, que mirad como está xDD Honestamente yo me quedo con todo lo bueno de la demo, que es que hay opción gráfica "classic", que los daños (excepto los críticos, que corregirán probablemente) son muy parecidos, y que la sensación de progreso es la misma, que los metadatos son muy muy parecidos tanto de objetos, de vidas y de posicionamiento de mobs... Realmente se revive la aventura que todos esperamos. Bien, una vez dicho esto, al grano. Me gustaría que no uniesen los parches, pero han dicho que lo van a hacer, así que por lo menos que no los saquen todos apelotonados y mal. Ya estuve explicando en el stream lo que pensaba acerca de los parches. Están MAL. Ese orden es correcto, pero no pueden sacar las cosas en 4 parches o juntan cosas que no deberían estar juntas. Para hacerlo rápido: Parche 1: MC, Onyxia. Parche 2: DM, Kazzak, Azuregos. Parche 3: BWL, BGs, PVP rewards, ZG. Parche 4: AQ, tier 0.5, Silithus, green dragons. Parche 5: Naxx y Scourge. Por qué? Porque sino te cargas el juego. DM tira objetos que son comparables en muchos casos con el loot de MC, aunque sean azules. DM es un sitio al que ir para ir a BWL cuando llegas tarde a la expansión y necesitas buen equipo rápido sin necesidad de farmearte un equipo entero de una raid de 40 personas. Sacar DM y los worldbosses de open, en mi opinión, es un grave error. La economía en vanilla es un pilar fundamental del juego. No es como ahora. Por aquel entonces el dinero tenía muchísimo valor, ya que todo el mundo necesitaba comprar a saco de cosas: enchants, armas, gear, patterns, materiales, montura épica, et etc etc. por lo tanto, si metes DM en el primer parche ya te cargas en parte eso. Por qué? Porque hay varios Pre-raid BiS que salen ahí y que por tanto hacen que no tengas que comprar cosas en AH o no ir a Scholo o Strat, y por lo tanto te estas cargando 2 instances muy chulas. Además de que hay varios spots de limpieza generadores de gold en DM "secretillos" que sirven con mago y alguna clase mas para sacarte bastante dinero. Y eso tiene que llegar en su momento, y es después de MC y Ony. Los Green dragons dan equipo de nature res y son buenos para AQ, se podrían meter antes tb en un parche, pero eso ya no me importa tanto. Lo que quiero es que no se carguen el juego por sacar las cosas de manera completamente atropellada. Hagamos bien las cosas blizzard. Un saludo a todos chicos, leeré vuestras opiniones a ver qué os parece.Hábil18 08 nov
The appearance of the game world was praised by critics. Most popular was the fact that a player could run from one end of the continent to the other without having to pause at a "loading screen" while part of the game is retrieved from storage.[86] The environment was described as "breathtaking". Players found it difficult to become lost, and each area in the game world had a distinct look that blended from one to the next.[21] Critics described the environment as "a careful blend of cartoon, fantasy art, and realism".[81] The game was found to run smoothly on a range of computer systems,[10] although some described it as basic,[21] and mentioned that the bloom light rendering effect can blur things.[20] One reviewer described the ability to fly over long stretches of scenery as "very atmospheric".[83] The user interface was liked, being described as "simple", with tooltips helping to get the player started.[10]

In the United States, Canada, and Europe, Blizzard distributes World of Warcraft via retail software packages.[50] The software package includes 30 days of gameplay for no additional cost. To continue playing after the initial 30 days, additional play time must be purchased using a credit card or prepaid game card. The minimum gameplay duration that a player can purchase is 30 days using a credit card, or 60 using a prepaid game card. A player also has the option of purchasing three or six months of gameplay at once for a 6–15% discount.[51] In Australia, the United States, and many European countries, video game stores commonly stock the trial version of World of Warcraft in DVD form, which includes the game and 20 levels[52] of gameplay, after which the player would have to upgrade to a retail account by supplying a valid credit card, or purchasing a game card as well as a retail copy of the game.

29 oct Cual será vuestro primer pj en el clasic? Visto el éxito que tiene el hilo de como nos gustaría que fuese el clasic me he planteado hacer este hilo. Yo empecé en la Lich y por tanto no se lo que hubo en el vanila, solo se lo que he leído. Yo me decantaré por un chamán, solo espero que ponga los 4 tótems personalizables ( si lo eran ) y que el mejora sea medio tanque ( como lo era el brujo en la lich o al menos así lo era en el boss del príncipe Valanar ) que he oído que al menos en la Burning lo era.Puxero180 29 oct

El pacífico reino de Azeroth está a punto de entrar en guerra para enfrentarse a unos terribles invasores: orcos guerreros que han dejado su destruido mundo para colonizar otro. Al abrirse un portal que conecta ambos mundos, un ejército se enfrenta a la destrucción, y el otro, a la extinción. Dos héroes, uno en cada bando, están a punto de chocar en un enfrentamiento que cambiará el destino de su familia, su pueblo y su hogar. Así empieza una espectacular saga de poder y sacrificio donde se descubren las numerosas caras de la guerra y donde cada uno lucha por lo suyo. Adaptación del popular videojuego homónimo. (FILMAFFINITY)


Anduin, Khadgar y Medivh se unen a una partida en búsqueda de indicios de magia vil, pero son emboscados por orcos. Medivh utiliza un hechizo que acaba con la mayoría de los orcos, haciendo huir al Jefe de Guerra de la Horda, Puño Negro, junto con Durotan y Orgrimm. En la huida, Durotan libera a la medio-orca Garona, esclava de Gul'dan, que es capturada por Khadgar. A cambio de su lealtad a Ventormenta, el rey Llane libera a Garona, quien guía a los humanos a espiar el campamento orco, enterándose del plan de Gul´dan de traer a la Horda a Azeroth. Mientras tanto, Durotan comprende que la magia vil es la responsable de la destrucción de Draenor, y si Gul'dan no es detenido, Azeroth sufrirá la misma suerte. A pesar de las objeciones de Orgrimm, Durotan encuentra a Garona con Anduin y Khadgar, que le pide en convocar a Llane a una reunión secreta con el objetivo de que el clan Lobo Gélido y los humanos se unan para vencer a Gul'dan. Mientras estudia el libro que tomó de Karazhan, Khadgar se da cuenta que Gul'dan no pudo abrir el portal por sí solo: para ello, necesitaba la ayuda de alguien en Azeroth. Khadgar es confrontado por Medivh, quien destruye la investigación de Khadgar después de ofrecerse a ayudarlo con sus funciones de Guardián.

In late 2007, a series of television commercials for the game began airing featuring pop culture celebrities such as Mr. T, William Shatner, and Verne Troyer discussing the virtues of the character classes they play in the game.[153] A Spanish commercial featuring Guillermo Toledo, and a French commercial featuring Jean-Claude Van Damme, were also televised.[154] Two more were shown in November 2008, featuring Ozzy Osbourne and Steve Van Zandt.[155] Another commercial in the series, which began airing in November 2011, featured Chuck Norris and played on the Internet phenomenon of "Chuck Norris facts".[156]

On July 6, 2010, Blizzard Entertainment announced that on its forums for all games, users' accounts would display the real names tied to their accounts.[127] Blizzard announced the change following an agreement with Facebook to allow Facebook to connect persons who choose to become friends to share their real identity (Real ID, as Blizzard calls the feature). The integration of the feature into the forums on the Blizzard Entertainment site raised concerns amongst fans of the many game series Blizzard has created over the years.[128]
The World of Warcraft launcher (referred to in press releases and the menu bar as the "Blizzard Launcher") is a program designed to act as a starting point for World of Warcraft players. It provides a way to launch World of Warcraft and starts the Blizzard updater. It was first included with the version 1.8.3 patch. The 2.1.0 patch allowed for an option to bypass the use of the launcher. Features of the launcher include news and updates for World of Warcraft players, access to World of Warcraft's support website, access to the test version of World of Warcraft when it is available to test upcoming patches, updates to Warden,[60] and updates to the updater itself. The 3.0.8 patch redesigned the launcher and added the ability to change the game settings from the launcher itself. The launcher update from patch 4.0.1 also allows people to play the game while non-crucial pieces of the game are downloaded. This requires a high-speed broadband internet connection.

Intent on settling in Durotar, Thrall's Horde expanded its ranks by inviting the undead Forsaken to join orcs, tauren, and trolls. Meanwhile, dwarves, gnomes, and the ancient night elves pledged their loyalties to the Alliance, guided by the human kingdom of Stormwind. After Stormwind's king, Varian Wrynn, mysteriously disappeared, Highlord Bolvar Fordragon served as Regent but his service was affected by the mind control of the black dragon Onyxia, who ruled in disguise as a human noblewoman. As heroes investigated Onyxia's manipulations, the ancient elemental lord Ragnaros resurfaced to endanger both the Horde and Alliance.[42] The heroes of the Horde and Alliance defeated Onyxia and sent Ragnaros back to the Elemental Plane.
