30 oct Os imaganias que a Blizzard... se le va la olla y con el exito de vanilla empiezan a sacar contenido nuevo siguiendo la filosofia del Clasic??? Imaginad que blizzard ve que la gente reniega del wow retail y se lo pasa mejor en Vanilla. Como exprimir a toda esa comunidad con fecha de caducidad, ya que el contenido es el que es. Cambiar retail para hacerlo mas Clasic, o meter contenido nuevo a Clasic qeu siempre quisieron meter y no pudieron. O hacer otra linea temporal. O alargar los sucesos antes de la burning.Lórdwarwick14 30 oct
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.
09 nov Se ha vuelto el wow muy exigente El wow ya no es lo que era, la interacción social es casi nula, todo es muy mecánico y la gente con la que te "toque" raidear, hacer mazs o lo que sea... tienen cero paciencia, te exigen pero si algo haces bien nada te dicen. He jugado en la antigua, sé de lo que hablo. Sólo quería expresar mi opinión. Chao. Posdata: con exigente me refería respecto el tema social.Oone14 09 nov
When players create World of Warcraft accounts, they are asked to choose a username and password. Afterward, whenever they play World of Warcraft, they are asked to supply the same username and password in full. This is also the case when using account management facilities online. This type of authentication is vulnerable to keystroke logging. While this is not unique to World of Warcraft and is common to many MMORPGs, the game has been directly targeted with trojans being specifically crafted to capture account login details.[112] Attacks have been reported as early as May 2006 and may extend as far back as July 30, 2005.[113] The game does, however, allow players to save their account name to the program to allow the player to only have to type their password.[114]
In the Lich King's haste to spread the plague of undeath over Azeroth, he gifted one of his greatest servants, the lich Kel'Thuzad, with the flying citadel of Naxxramas, as a base of operations for the Scourge. Consistent attacks from the Scarlet Crusade and Argent Dawn factions weakened the defenses of the floating fortress, enabling an incursion from the heroes that led to Kel'Thuzad's defeat. However, a traitor among the ranks of the knightly order of the Argent Dawn ran away with Kel'Thuzad's cursed remains and fled to Northrend, where the fallen lich could be reanimated.
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]
En World of Warcraft un jugador tiene acceso a doce tipos de clases (según la expansión Legion) restringida según la raza que se seleccione.17​ Además de la diferencia existente entre cada clase, estas pueden elegir una rama de talentos entre un total de tres (o cuatro si se selecciona druida como clase), aumentando la diferencia entre estas.18​19​
Blizzard makes use of a system known as Warden on the Windows version of the game to detect third-party programs, such as botting software, allowing World of Warcraft to be played unattended. There has been some controversy as to the legality of Warden. Warden uses techniques similar to anti-virus software to analyze other running software on the players' PCs, as well as the file system. However, unlike most anti-virus software, it sends a portion of this information back to Blizzard, which caused privacy advocates to accuse it of being spyware.[122] One example of the information Warden collects is the title of every window open on the system while WoW is running.[123] On the other hand, many gamers responded positively to the development, stating that they supported the technology if it resulted in fewer cases of cheating. Blizzard's use of Warden was stated in the Terms of Agreement (TOA).[124]
24 oct Una idea "brillante" ?¿ Buenas, quisiera dejar escribo el siguiente post para los maestros de juego y que puedan hacerles llegar mis opiniones a los desarrolla dores, con la salida de Classic espero y deseo que la dificultad sea como antaño y ademas vuelva el factor social en nuestras vidas, que tu pj dentro de juego sea una extension de tu propia reputacion, ahora bien, esto es una idea (aunque a lo mejor la implementaran) pero me gustaria que sacaran todas las expansiones como hasta ahora pero con la dificultad de vanilla, que no la casualicen como han echo hasta ahora aunque.... Aunque me idea principal es otra, algunas expansiones han sido mejores que otras y cof...... draenor cof cof, ufff que tos mas mala ¬_¬-------------(mira mas abajo) A nivel narrativo algunas personas no les a acabado de gustar mucho o creen que podria haber sido de otra forma las cosas, asi que mi planteamiento es el siguiente...., porque no hacer de classic el punto de partida a nuevas expansiones? me refiero a crear una nueva linea temporal, en los libros de "la guerra de los ancestros" contaban en una parte que se habian destruido las demas lineas temporales y solo quedaba una (corregidme si me equivoco) la actual, asi que propondria a blizz que crease una nueva linea temporal diferente a la actual, se que algunos me direis: tio pero eso son mas expansiones que hay que comprar y bla bla bla bla, si tios ya lo se, son nuevas expansiones que se comprarian pero es una historia completamente diferente, imaginaros por un momento que se pudiera reescribir la historia y pudieramos de alguna forma, hacer que algunas cosas malas no ocurriesen, eso si, si blizz llegase hacerlo OS LO SUPLICO, DEJAD LA DIFICULTAD COMO ESTA Y NO LA CASUALICEIS. Esta es mi opinion, no se si mas de uno opinara lo mismo.Tragamillas0 24 oct

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.
In patch 2.1, Blizzard responded to this by adding additional anti-spam mechanics including whisper throttling and the report spam function. Additionally, trial accounts are prevented from speaking in the public chat channels (although they may speak to players within range or whisper to other players that have first whispered to them), participating in in-game trades, and using the Auction House and the mail feature, among other limitations.
World of Warcraft funciona de forma nativa tanto en ordenadores Macintosh de Apple como en Windows. El juego en caja usa un CD híbrido para instalarlo. Los jugadores pueden jugar juntos sin importar el sistema operativo. No existe ninguna versión oficial para ningún otro sistema operativo aunque puede ser jugado en GNU/Linux o FreeBSD mediante Wine.
A principios de 2001 Blizzard comenzó a publicar novelas de sus tres universos principales, siendo la primera novela de Warcraft Day of the Dragon.7​ Estas novelas exploran importantes eventos y problemas del mundo de Warcraft, como la liberación de la reina de los dragones, Alexstrasza (en el texto citado arriba), o el nacimiento del nuevo líder de la Horda orca, el jefe de guerra Thrall (narrado en Warcraft: Lord of the Clans). En la diversificación consecuente del universo de Warcraft se comenzaron a emplear notorios elementos orientales en las imágenes y conceptos del mundo y personajes, como los cuerpos y armas desproporcionadas y la idea que tiene de los elfos de cejas y orejas muy largas.8​

The great desert fortress of Ahn'Qiraj, long sealed behind the Scarab Wall, was home to the insectoid qiraji, a savage race that had once mounted an assault to devastate the continent of Kalimdor. But something far more sinister lurked behind Ahn'Qiraj's walls: the Old God C'Thun, an ancient entity whose pervasive evil had suffused Azeroth since time immemorial. As C'Thun incited the qiraji to frenzy, both the Alliance and Horde prepared for a massive war effort. A mixed force of Alliance and Horde soldiers, dubbed the Might of Kalimdor, opened the gates of Ahn'Qiraj under the command of the orc Varok Saurfang. The heroes laid siege to the ruins and temples of Ahn'Qiraj and vanquished C'Thun.

Como en otros, los jugadores controlan un avatar dentro de un mundo en una vista de tercera persona (con la opción de jugar en primera persona) explorando el entorno, combatiendo contra varios monstruos y jugadores, completando misiones e interactuando con personajes no jugables (PNJ) u otros jugadores. El completar misiones ayudará a los jugadores a poder subir de nivel y de esta forma, podrán conseguir equipamiento que les ayudará más adelante a combatir a las distintas criaturas que vayan apareciendo en su camino.
