El sistema de personajes fue bien recibido, con críticos señalando a cada clase como viable e interesante, con características únicas,17​ así como que cada raza tenía un toque de distinción y de aspecto.15​ El desarrollo de los personajes también fue destacado, así como el sistema de talentos, su gran diversidad de opciones32​ y el sistema de profesiones.15​ La personalización física de los personajes fue considerada una de las cosas menos interesantes del juego,42​ aunque el nivel de detalle de los modelos fue elogiado.35​
The company offers parental controls[40] that allow various limits to be set on playing time. It is possible to set a daily limit, a weekly limit, or to specify an allowed playing schedule. In order to control these settings, it is necessary to log in with different credentials than are used just to enter the game. It is also possible to receive statistics on the time spent playing. Apart from controlling children, adults sometimes use parental controls on themselves.[41] The company supports this kind of protection as otherwise the potential players or their supervisors may choose to uninstall or block the game permanently.
World of Warcraft requires a subscription to allow continued play, with options to pay in one-month, three-month, or six-month blocks, and time cards of varying lengths available from retailers, or purchasing a "WoW Token" in-game.[35][36] Expansion packs are available online and from retailers. As the game client is the same regardless of the version of World of Warcraft the user owns, the option to purchase expansions online was added as it allows for a quick upgrade. World of Warcraft is also available as a free Starter Edition, which is free to play for an unlimited amount of time. Starter Edition characters are unable to gain experience after reaching level 20, and there are other restrictions in effect for Starter Edition accounts, including the inability to trade, use mail, use Auction House, use public chat channels, join guilds or amass more than ten gold.[37]
As characters become more developed, they gain various talents and skills, requiring the player to further define the abilities of that character.[15] Characters can choose two primary professions that can focus on producing items, such as tailoring, blacksmithing or jewelcrafting or on gathering from resource nodes, such as skinning or mining. Characters can learn all four secondary skills: archeology, cooking, fishing and first aid.[16][17] Characters may form and join guilds, allowing characters within the guild access to the guild's chat channel, the guild name and optionally allowing other features, including a guild tabard, guild bank, guild repairs, and dues.[18]
También existe aparentemente un orden cronológico entre una y otra marca. Warcraft apareció primero y puso los elementos históricos del universo de Warcraft en juego, estableciendo así las enemistades y relaciones entre razas y grupos, origen de todas las guerras.6​ World of Warcraft, por su parte, se ha dedicado a explotar las posibilidades del libre desenvolvimiento dentro del mundo establecido por los juegos anteriores, y podría decirse que se desarrolla en el tiempo presente de este mundo fantástico, después de Warcraft I, II y III. Esto es en su mayoría cierto; sin embargo, este orden cronológico no siempre se respeta, World of Warcraft también da nombre a algunos productos que regresan en la historia de Warcraft y la amplían, como la novela World of Warcraft: Rise of the Horde.
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.
Más tarde con la aparición de Warcraft, el juego de rol y World of Warcraft (ambos de 2003), la tradición popular del mundo fantástico que argumenta los juegos y literatura de Warcraft se hizo considerablemente compleja, retomó para ello a varias criaturas fantásticas o razas de Dungeons & Dragons,9​ The Lord of the Rings y la mitología tradicional de varias partes del mundo, como lo tiende a hacer gran parte de la literatura fantástica contemporánea. También ha incorporado distintos lenguajes y vocaciones u oficios que determinan los modos de vida de los aventureros, así como la distinción entre las razas mortales y los inmortales.10​
World of Warcraft fue aclamado universalmente por la crítica después de ser lanzado,39​ siendo precedido de un período de grandes expectativas antes de su publicación.35​ Aunque el juego sigue un modelo similar a otros del género15​ y usa conceptos de los juegos de rol,32​ las nuevas propuestas para reducir las pausas entre encuentros fueron bien recibidas.15​ Como por ejemplo la muerte, en algunos MMORPG previos el jugador sufría una fuerte penalización por morir, mientras que en World of Warcraft el jugador se recuperaba y comenzaba a jugar rápidamente.15​ El combate fue otro espacio donde se produjeron cambios, al permitir al jugador recuperarse rápido del daño sufrido podían volver rápido a la batalla.41​ Estos cambios daban la sensación que harían al juego más accesible a jugadores ocasionales, que podrían jugar por periodos cortos de tiempo y aun así conseguir algo,41​ mientras que a la vez se mantenía la profundidad en el juego de manera que se permitiera a los jugadores de los niveles más altos mantener el interés en el juego.42​ El concepto de "bono por descanso" o el incremento de la velocidad con la que el jugador gana experiencia permitía a los jugadores alcanzar rápidamente el nivel de sus amigos.15​
Characters were felt to be implemented well, with each class appearing "viable and interesting", having unique and different mechanisms,[83] and each of the races having a distinct look and feel.[10] Character development was also liked, with the talent mechanism offering choice to players,[81] and profession options being praised.[10] Character customization options were felt to be low,[20] but the detail of character models was praised.[86]
The Corrupted Blood plague so closely resembled the outbreak of real-world epidemics that scientists are currently looking at the ways MMORPGs or other massively distributed systems can model human behavior during outbreaks. The reaction of players to the plague closely resembled previously hard-to-model aspects of human behavior that may allow researchers to more accurately predict how diseases and outbreaks spread amongst a population.[149]

Warcraft es una marca comercial de Blizzard Entertainment que ha sido ampliamente difundida y diversificada a partir del videojuego Warcraft: Orcs & Humans (1994), uno de los primeros en su género. Por extensión también implica a la marca World of Warcraft, que nace del videojuego de rol multijugador masivo en línea -por sus siglas en inglés, MMORPG- del mismo nombre.1​El universo de Warcraft que se encuentra en ambas marcas está ambientado en una fantasía épica moderna propia de El Señor de los Anillos o Dungeons & Dragons y tiene su inspiración inicial en los juegos del universo de Warhammer Fantasy[cita requerida], representando combates entre el bando de los humanos y el de los orcos, los cuales son seres fantásticos adaptados de la mitología clásica europea a la fantasía actual, pero con una concepción y estilos muy propios.

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.
As characters progress in World of Warcraft and take on some of the toughest challenges, many of the rewards received are bound to that character and cannot be traded, generating a market for the trading of accounts with well-equipped characters. The highest noted World of Warcraft account trade was for £5000 (€7000, US$9,900) in early September 2007. The high price was due to the character possessing items that at the time were owned by only a handful out of the millions of active players, due to the difficulty in acquiring them. However, Blizzard banned the account five days after the purchase.[142]
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).

World of Warcraft received very positive reviews upon release,[80] following a period of high anticipation before launch.[86] Although the game follows a similar model to—and was noted for using many familiar concepts from—the role-playing genre,[10][81] the new approaches to reducing pauses between game encounters were well liked.[21] A common example was the approach to character death. In some previous MMORPGs, a player would suffer a high penalty for character death; in World of Warcraft, a player is able to recover and start playing quickly.[10] Combat was another area where "downtime", or pauses between play, was reduced. By allowing all character types to recover from damage taken, players can return to combat quickly.[21] Reviewers felt that these changes in pacing would make the genre more accessible to casual players—those who play for short periods of time—[21] while still having "deep" gameplay that would attract players of all levels of interest.[20] The concept of a "rested bonus", or increasing the rate at which a player's character gains experience, was also welcomed as a way for players to quickly catch up with their friends in progression.[10]
Questing was described as an integral part of the game, often being used to continue a storyline or lead the player through the game.[21] The high number of quests in each location was popular, as well as the rewards for completing them.[10] It was felt that the range of quests removed the need for a player to "grind", or carry out repetitive tasks, to advance their character.[20] Quests also require players to explore every section of the game world, potentially causing problems for social gamers or roleplayers seeking somewhere quiet.[21] Quests that required the player to collect items from the corpses of creatures they had killed were also unpopular; the low "drop rate", or chance of finding the items, makes them feel repetitive as a high number of creatures need to be killed to complete the quest.[20] A large number of new players in a particular area meant that there were often no creatures to kill,[21] or that players would have to wait and take turns to kill a particular creature to complete a quest.[10] Some critics mentioned that the lack of quests that required players to group up made the game feel as if it were designed for solo play.[83] Others complained that some dungeon or instanced group quests were not friendly to new players, and could take several hours to complete.[20] Upon release, a small number of quests had software bugs that made them impossible to complete.[10]
10 nov Bindeos para diferentes rangos de heal Muy buenas foreros, Tengo muchas ganas de jugar a la classic cuando salga, y me gustaría subirme un sacerdote. En su día ya jugué uno y me gustó mucho, pero durante aquella época era clicker y me había creado una UI en la que tenía varios rangos de curas (tenía 3 rangos en pantalla) y clickaba una u otra en función de la situación para ahorrar maná. Hoy en día no podría volver a ser clicker, imposible. Entonces, mi pregunta es: ¿hay alguien por aquí que jugase a vanilla he hiciera esto sin ser clicker? ¿Como os bindeasteis el teclado para lanzar los rangos bajos de heal? ¿Se os ocurre alguna manera intuitiva de como hacerlo? Saludos!Zorripa11	10 nov

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]


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.
