World of Warcraft was the best-selling PC game of 2005 and 2006.[96] In the United States, it sold 1.4 million copies ($68.1 million) by August 2006. It was the country's third best-selling computer game between January 2000 and August 2006.[97] On January 22, 2008, World of Warcraft had more than 10 million subscribers worldwide, with more than 2 million subscribers in Europe, more than 2.5 million in North America, and about 5.5 million in Asia.[98] At its peak in October 2010 the game had 12 million subscribers.[99] As of November 2014 the game has over 10 million active subscribers.[100] On January 28, 2014 Blizzard announced that 100 million accounts have been created for the game.[101] On May 7, 2015, it was announced that there were 7.1 million active subscriptions.[102][103][104][105] At the end of June 2015, subscriptions dropped down to 5.6 million, lowest since 2005.[106] By the end of September, subscribers were at 5.5 million.[107]
Blizzard routinely applies older expansions to all accounts as new expansions are released. On June 28, 2011, The Burning Crusade expansion was automatically applied to all previous Warcraft accounts at no cost. On September 19, 2012, the same thing was done with the Wrath of the Lich King expansion,[67] and on October 15, 2013 the Cataclysm expansion was also applied.[68] On October 15, 2014, Mists of Pandaria was applied to all accounts following the release of Warlords.[69] On May 17, 2016, Warlords of Draenor was applied to all accounts to coincide with the release of the Warcraft movie that gives a 30-day trial of the game.[70] All The Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King, Cataclysm, Mists of Pandaria and Warlords of Draenor content is now effectively part of the original game, with all new World of Warcraft accounts automatically including these expansions upon creation.[67] As of the pre-patch release of Battle for Azeroth in July 2018, all expansions up to Legion are included in the base game.[71]

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]
Mientras tanto, Lothar ha sido encarcelado por oponerse al Guardián, pero es liberado por Khadgar y ambos viajan a Karazhan para detener a Medivh. En la torre, el Guardián, poseído por el demonio, ha empezado los cantos para abrir el portal, pero es enfrentado por Khadgar y Lothar, quienes logran derrotarlo. Liberado del demonio, pero mortalmente herido, Medivh usa sus últimas fuerzas para redireccionar el portal hacia Ventormenta, de modo que Llane pueda evacuar a los prisioneros humanos, pero el portal se cierra antes de que él, Garona y un pequeño número de soldados y pocos prisioneros humanos puedan escapar. Cuando Llane se da cuenta que Puño Negro va por él, secretamente ordena a Garona que lo mate, para que de este modo ella se convierta en una heroína a ojos de la Horda, dándole una posición de poder que le permita alcanzar la paz entre orcos y humanos. Garona, apesadumbrada, lo mata, y es reconocida por el resto de la Horda. Anduin llega sobre las alas de un grifo y lucha por recobrar el cuerpo de Llane, pero cuando está a punto de partir, es capturado por Puño Negro, quien lo reta a una mak'gora. A pesar de todo su poder, Anduin lo mata y venga a su hijo. Gul'dan ordena al resto de la Horda que asesinen a Lothar, pero estos se oponen por respeto a su tradición sagrada, y Garona sabe que si Gul'dan desobedece la tradición, perderá a la Horda y la guerra apenas comienza, y por eso dejan partir a Anduin con el cuerpo de Llane. Anduin tuvo la daga de Garona al encontrar en el cuello de Llane, al explicarle a Khadgar lo que hizo y saben que no la conocían tan bien como ellos. En el funeral de Llane en Ventormenta, los humanos, los enanos de Forjaz y los altos elfos proclaman una Alianza para vengar al rey Llane contra los orcos, con Anduin a la cabeza, para hacer frente a la Horda. En el campamento orco ya destruido, Orgrimm toma uno de los colmillos del cadáver de Durotan para dárselo algún día a Go'el, quien finalmente es encontrado por un humano, con la voz de Durotan; "Viajarás muy lejos, mi pequeño Go'el..... Mi mundo se perdió, pero éste es tu mundo.... Toma de él lo que necesites... Dale un hogar a los orcos y que nadie te detenga..... Eres el hijo de Durotan y Draka... Una línea ininterrumpida de jefes y nuestro pueblo necesita un líder hoy más que nunca", para que así algún día crezca y se convierta en el nuevo líder de su clan, derrotará a Gul'dan y pondrá fin a la Guerra.

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]

Players are not required to purchase expansions in order to continue playing; however, new content and features such as higher level caps and new areas may not be available until they do so.

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.
