World of Warcraft (WoW) is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) released in 2004 by Blizzard Entertainment. It is the fourth released game set in the Warcraft fantasy universe.[3] World of Warcraft takes place within the Warcraft world of Azeroth, approximately four years after the events at the conclusion of Blizzard's previous Warcraft release, Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne.[4] The game was announced in 2001, and was released for the 10th anniversary of the Warcraft franchise on November 23, 2004. Since launch, World of Warcraft has had seven major expansion packs released for it: The Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King, Cataclysm, Mists of Pandaria, Warlords of Draenor, Legion, and Battle for Azeroth.
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.
The game's audio was well received, particularly the background music. By assigning music to different areas of the game world, reviewers felt that the fantasy style added to the player's immersion,[81] and that the replay value was increased.[20] The sounds and voices used by characters and NPCs, as well as the overall sound effects, were felt to add a "personality" to the game.[81]
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]
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.

Los monjes son maestros del combate a mano y solo empuñan las armas para sus letales golpes de gracia (viajero del viento). Los monjes sanadores aportan armonía y equilibrio a todos los grupos y pueden sanar hasta las heridas más graves con remedios antiguos y artes espirituales (tejedor de la niebla). Son pocos los que pueden confiar en sobrevivir ante la extrema destreza del monje maestro cervecero, cuyas intensas bebidas e impredecible estilo de combate absorben unas cantidades de daño impresionantes (maestro cervecero).

Blizzard garnered criticism for its decision in January 2006 to ban guilds from advertising sexual orientation preferences. The incident occurred after several players were cited for "harassment" after advocating a group that was a gay-straight alliance.[133][134] Blizzard later reversed the decision to issue warnings to players promoting LGBT-friendly guilds.
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 es una marca comercial de Blizzard basada en el universo de Warcraft, que, a diferencia de éste, deja a un lado la estrategia de campañas bélicas y explora las posibilidades del rol y la configuración personalizada de personajes ficticios. Este juego es online y multijugadores, por lo que el usuario explora este mundo, pero en otro formato de juego junto a los demás jugadores.
Players who purchase Warlords of Draenor Collector's or Digital Deluxe Edition receive an Orc themed card back in Hearthstone.[168] Heroes of the Storm players who reach level 20 receive the Grave Golem battle pet in World of Warcraft and after reaching level 100 in World of Warcraft receive an Ironside Dire Wolf mount in Heroes of the Storm.[169] Starting on March 11, 2016, players who level a character to 20 in WoW, which can be completed with the free starter edition, earn the alternate Paladin hero Lady Liadrin in Hearthstone.[170]

In South Korea, there is no software package or CD key requirement to activate the account. However, to play the game, players must purchase time credits online. There are two kinds of time credits available: one where the player is billed based on the actual number of minutes that will be available, and one where the player can play the game for a number of days. In the former, time can be purchased in multiples of 5 hours or 30 hours, and in the latter, time can be purchased in multiples of 7 days, 1 month, or 3 months.[54] As software packages are not required, expansion pack contents are available to all players on launch day.
14 nov Mapas de mazmorras? Hola a todos. Acaba de venirme a la mente que en antaño las mazmorras no tenían mapas (si no recuerdo mal, los empezaron a meter hacia el final de la WotlK), lo cual hacía que fuese muy facil perderse y no saber por donde ir para limpiar ciertas mazs. Es cierto que las hemos hecho hasta la saciedad y las tenemos muy vistas, aunque hay alguna que sigue siendo un autentico laberinto (maraudon, roca negra, sunken temple... [no hay que olvidar que lo que vemos de esas mazs hoy en dia si entramos por el buscador es ínfimo a lo que era antes, especialmente sunken temple que ahora es una autentica risa, la han reducido como un 80%]), pero aun así siempre es bienvenida la ayuda y la visión que te da el mapa, sobretodo para saber donde están tus compañeros de grupo. Ahora, con la tonteria de que la gente se ofende hasta con lo de que el WoW Classic tendrá el modo daltónico solo porque el original no lo tenía, quería abrir un debate sobre esto. Os gustaría que hubiesen mapas de las mazmorras? O preferís la experiencia 100% vanilla? Desde mi punto de vista, no me gustaría que los metiesen, soy de los que prefiere una experiencia lo más fiel posible, aunque no soy los que buscan el 100% de fidelidad, pues las mejoras graficas por ejemplo me parecen un acierto, siempre y cuando te permitan elegir los graficos que quieras. Un saludo ;)Monórquido17 14 nov

Less than two months after beginning operation of World of Warcraft in China on September 19, 2009, NetEase was ordered to immediately stop charging players and to cease accepting registrations.[108][109] A press estimate indicated that if World of Warcraft were shut down in China, the loss of subscribers would have caused Activision Blizzard's earnings to fall from 65 cents per share to 60 cents per share.[108] In April 2008, World of Warcraft was estimated to hold 62 percent of the MMORPG subscription market.[110] The game has grossed $9.23 billion in revenue, making it one of the highest-grossing video games of all time, along with Space Invaders, Pac-Man and Street Fighter II.[111]

03 nov Jugando la demo de WoW®: Classic Cuando la versión de demostración de WoW®: Classic se pueda jugar desde casa el 2 de noviembre queremos asegurar la mayor disponibilidad estableciendo límites a las sesiones de juego. Cuando la demostración esté disponible empezará a contar un tiempo límite para jugar y un tiempo de espera para poder iniciar la demostración de nuevo (este tiempo empezará a contar cuando te conectes por primera vez) para que la mayor cantidad de jugadores pueda jugar a la demostración de WoW®: Classic el mayor tiempo posible. Empezaremos con un tiempo de juego acumulativo de 60 minutos y un tiempo de espera de 90 minutos. Aquí tenéis algunos ejemplos de cómo funcionará: Si juegas 30 minutos y dejas de jugar 60 minutos, cuando vuelvas podrás jugar 60 minutos. Si juegas 60 minutos serás desconectado y tendrás que esperar 30 minutos para poder jugar de nuevo. Si juegas 20 minutos, después te tomas 20 de pausa y vuelves a jugar por 40 minutos, serás desconectado y tendrás que esperar 10 minutos más. Nuestro objetivo es quitar estas restricciones de juego cuando sea posible, pero si en algún momento en el futuro hay mucha demanda podremos volver a ponerlas. Actualizaremos este hilo con más información si es necesario. ¡Muchas gracias a todos!Katriedna1	03 nov

One of the intriguing things about the old Vivendi structure was that, even when Martin Tremblay joined to run Vivendi's publishing, it was specified: "World Of Warcraft creator Blizzard Entertainment has been designated a stand-alone division reporting to VU Games' CEO, and is not part of Tremblay's product development mandate.

World of Warcraft contains a variety of mechanisms for player versus player (PvP) play. Players on player versus environment (PvE) servers can opt to "flag" themselves, making themselves attackable to players of the opposite faction.[25] Depending on the mode of the realm, PvP combat between members of opposing factions is possible at almost any time or location in the game world—the only exception being the starting zones, where the PvP "flag" must be enabled by the player wishing to fight against players of the opposite faction. PvE (called normal or RP) servers, by contrast, allow a player to choose whether or not to engage in combat against other players. On both server types, there are special areas of the world where free-for-all combat is permitted. Battlegrounds, for example, are similar to dungeons: only a set number of characters can enter a single battleground, but additional copies of the battleground can be made to accommodate additional players.[26] Each battleground has a set objective, such as capturing a flag or defeating an opposing general, that must be completed to win the battleground. Competing in battlegrounds rewards the character with tokens and honor points that can be used to buy armor, weapons, and other general items that can aid a player in many areas of the game. Winning a battleground awards more honor and tokens than losing. In addition, players also earn honor when they or nearby teammates kill players in a battleground.[25]
In China, because a large number of players do not own the computer on which they play games (e.g. if they play in Internet cafés), the CD keys required to create an account can be purchased independently of the software package. To play the game, players must also purchase prepaid game cards that can be played for 66 hours and 40 minutes.[55] A monthly fee model is not available to players of this region. The Chinese government and NetEase, the licensee for World of Warcraft in China, have imposed a modification on Chinese versions of the game which places flesh on bare-boned skeletons and transforms dead character corpses into tidy graves. These changes were imposed by the Chinese government in an attempt to "promote a healthy and harmonious online game environment" in World of Warcraft.[56][57] The Chinese government delayed the release of the Wrath of the Lich King expansion, due to what it deemed objectionable content.[58] NetEase took over licensing of World of Warcraft from The9 in June 2009 following the expiration of The9's contract,[59] and were able to secure a launch for Wrath of the Lich King on August 31, 2010, nearly two years after its Western release.
Los cazadores de demonios, discípulos de Illidan Tempestira, cargan con un oscuro legado que atemoriza a aliados y enemigos por igual. Los Illidari se sirven de magia vil y magia caótica, energías que durante eones han amenazado Azeroth y que, según ellos, son esenciales para hacer frente a la Legión Ardiente. Con los poderes de los demonios a los que han asesinado, los Illidari desarrollan rasgos demoníacos que provocan repulsión y pavor entre sus congéneres, los elfos.
