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]

In September 2006, reports emerged of spoof World of Warcraft game advice websites that contained malware. Vulnerable computers would be infected through their web browsers, downloading a program that would then relay back account information. Blizzard's account support teams experienced high demand during this episode, stating that many users had been affected. Claims were also made that telephone support was closed for isolated periods due to the volume of calls and resulting queues.[115] In April 2007, attacks evolved to take advantage of further exploits involving animated cursors, with multiple websites being used.[116][117] Security researcher group Symantec released a report stating that a compromised World of Warcraft account was worth US$10 on the black market, compared to US$6 to US$12 for a compromised computer (correct as of March 2007).[118] In February 2008, phishing emails were distributed requesting that users validate their account information using a fake version of the World of Warcraft account management pages.[119] In June 2008, Blizzard announced the Blizzard Authenticator, available as a hardware security token or mobile application[120] that provides two-factor security. The token generates a one-time password based code that the player supplies when logging on. The password, used in addition to the user's own password, is only valid for a couple of minutes, thus providing extra security against keylogging malware.[121]

Es una clase híbrida del juego, se puede definir como un protector que lucha y sana con el poder de la Luz, pero más enfocado al combate. Posee facultades para la lucha cuerpo a cuerpo y algunas para el apoyo a otros jugadores y de sanación, además de poseer un sistema de sellos que proporciona ventajas en la lucha a él mismo. A pesar de que son expertos en la supervivencia, sus ramas de talentos los hacen muy versátiles, al extremo de poder desempeñarse como Tanque (Protección), Healers (Sagrado) o DPS (Reprensión), y una amplia cantidad de armas. Emplean el sistema de maná, combinado con el poder sagrado, que es un tipo de energía que se carga al realizar ciertos ataques, y que sirve para activar otros ataques más poderosos. El poder sagrado tiene tres cargas. Sólo tiene un efecto devastador cuando están las tres cargas completas y usarlo consume las tres cargas, si se tiene dos cargas el daño es superior al normal y una carga es daño regular. Si no se usa, las cargas se van desactivando una por una. Usan armaduras de placas a partir del nivel 40 pero a partir del lvl 50 son maestros en placas. En la Horda los elfos de sangre y taurens pueden beneficiarse de esta clase, mientras que en la Alianza humanos, enanos y draenei pueden ser caballeros de la luz.
15 nov ¿A qué aspiráis realmente en WoW Classic? Buenas, Ha pasado más de una década desde que cientos de miles de jugadores de todo el mundo se adentraran por primera vez en World of Warcraft. En aquella época o incluso un poco más tarde, como fue mi caso, muchos, diría que la mayoría, éramos personas jóvenes con pocas responsabilidades en su día a día y bastante tiempo libre, tiempo que podíamos dedicar al que seguramente era uno de nuestros entretenimientos favoritos. Ahora, varios años más tarde, somos personas con las responsabilidades propias de la vida adulta y lógicamente con una cantidad menor de tiempo libre para dedicar a nuestras aficiones. Teniendo esto en cuenta y siendo honestos con vosotros mismos, ¿cuáles son vuestras aspiraciones para WoW Classic? Yo probablemente me dedique a levear varias clases con tranquilidad (¡me encanta levear!) e intentaré ir equipando a un personaje poco a poco con profesiones y mazmorras. Eventualmente, espero poder acceder a las primeras raids, aunque no pienso que pueda comprometerme a raidear de forma asidua. ¿Qué hay de vosotros?Korvael64 15 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]
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.

08 nov La Demo es una chapuza, broma de mal gusto - Phasing - Ventana de LFR - Puntos de experiencia bufados - El warrior en lvl 15 pega muchísmo - Regeneración alta de vida/mana - Daño infligido / recibido - En la versión en español, al mago lo llaman CHAMAN ... Blizzard, esto no es una demo de Classic. Parece un refrito de varias expansiones. ES UNA BASURA. No consigo encontrar ninguna explicación para TAMAÑA CHAPUZA. No es digno de una empresa como vosotros. No he puesto ni un euro en el WoW desde WotLK, y seguiré sin hacerlo si seguís así.Nain81 08 nov
