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.
World of Warcraft won several awards from critics upon release, including Editor's Choice awards.[10][20] In addition, it won several annual awards from the media, being described as the best game in the role-playing and MMORPG genres.[87] The graphics and audio were also praised in the annual awards, with the cartoonish style[88] and overall sound makeup being noted.[89] The game was also awarded Best Mac OS X Entertainment Product at the 2005 Apple Design Awards.[90] Computer Games Magazine named World of Warcraft the best computer game of 2004, and the magazine's Steve Bauman described his "feeling that Blizzard has analyzed every element of every existing game, pulled out the best ones, and then lovingly lavished an absurd amount of attention to their implementation." It also won the magazine's "Best Art Direction", "Best Original Music" and "Best Interface" awards.[91]

A number of facilities are available for characters while in towns and cities. In each major city, characters can access a bank to deposit items, such as treasure or crafted items. Each character has access to personal bank storage with the option to purchase additional storage space using in-game gold.[29] Additionally, guild banks are available for use by members of a guild with restrictions being set by the guild leader.[30] Auction houses are available for players to buy and sell items to others in a similar way to online auction sites such as eBay.[31] Players can use mailboxes, which can be found in almost every town. Mailboxes are used to collect items won at auction, and to send messages, items, and in-game money to other characters.[15]

28 oct Tiers, ansiados cambios. Buenas, como warr main que me declaro de toda la vida de dios, recuerdo que cualquier tier era para especificas ramas me explico, el warr fury si quería el t1/2/3 lo que te daba era más para tank que para otra cosa, y tenías que equiparte a piezas sueltas, me gustaría que adaptaran el Tier a las ramas que disponga cada clase, ustedes que opináis?Venath2 28 oct
DPS: sigla de daño por segundo. Se encargan de golpear al enemigo y bajarle la vida hasta derrotarlo. Son el tipo más diverso y hay de muchos tipos, a distancia (cazadores), cuerpo a cuerpo (guerrero, chamán mejora, caballero de la muerte, pícaro, paladín, druida feral, monjes viajero del viento, cazador de demonios devastación) y mágicos o los lanzadores o casters (mago, brujo, sacerdote sombras, chamán elemental, druida equilibrio). Sus puntos de vida suelen ser la mitad que la de los tanques, pero el daño que infligen es superior con respecto a los otros roles y prácticamente son estos los que acaban con los jefes en las bandas. Por esa misma razón, son el tipo de rol que se necesita en mayor cantidad en las bandas.

12 nov ¿Classic de pago o gratuita? Muy buenas, Me gustaría iniciar este debate ya que no lo he visto en ningún post y hoy he tenido una charla con un amigo sobre esto: Vanilla de pago o gratuito, yo defiendo la postura de pago, ya que considero que ofrece ciertas ventajas respecto a cosas, las explico. 1-Al ser de pago te garantiza una comunidad menos toxica, que si lo pagan es por que van a jugar y libre de casuals. 2-Imaginaros un Vanilla gratuito en una guild, entrarían 6-10 personas por semana, con tal follón imaginaros hacer un roster si a la semana de esos 6-10 personas, 8 dejan de jugar por que son casuals o diversos motivos. 3-En mi opinión garantiza tener menos toxicidad, menos niños rata y mas gente madura. El defendía que ya llevamos 14 años pagando por el wow, si ahora sacan un vanilla que sea gratuito, porque ya se saco en su día y que si pagas el wow ahora mismo todos los meses a final de año has gastado 155 Euros. Respecto a las opciones de Blizzard considero que tiene 3: 1-Incluir una pequeña tasa que solo te de acceso al Vanilla, de 3 a 5 Euros mensuales. 2-Incluir el Vanilla en la actual de 13 euros. 3-Gratuito. A mi gusto, preferiría la 2 obviamente, pero tampoco vería mal la 1, pese a que si juegas a ambos (cosa muy difícil) llegarías a 16 euros o mas. ¿Que opináis el resto?Estrüendo107 12 nov
Some of the challenges in World of Warcraft require players to group together to complete them. These usually take place in dungeons—also known as "instances"—that a group of characters can enter together. The term "instance" comes from each group or party having a separate copy, or instance, of the dungeon, complete with their own enemies to defeat and their own treasure or rewards.[32] This allows a group to explore areas and complete quests without others interfering. Dungeons are spread over the game world and are designed for characters of varying progression. A typical dungeon will allow up to five characters to enter as part of a group. Some dungeons require more players to group together and form a "raid" of up to forty players to face some of the most difficult challenges.[33] As well as dungeon-based raid challenges, several creatures exist in the normal game environment that are designed for raids to attack.[28][34]
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

Much of World of Warcraft play involves the completion of quests. These quests are usually available from NPCs.[19] Quests usually reward the player with some combination of experience points, items, and in-game money. Quests allow characters to gain access to new skills and abilities, as well as the ability to explore new areas.[20] It is through quests that much of the game's story is told, both through the quest's text and through scripted NPC actions.[21] Quests are linked by a common theme, with each consecutive quest triggered by the completion of the previous, forming a quest chain. Quests commonly involve killing a number of creatures, gathering a certain number of resources, finding a difficult to locate object, speaking to various NPCs, visiting specific locations, interacting with objects in the world, or delivering an item from one place to another to acquire experience and treasures.
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.
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
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]
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.

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]
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]

On July 6, 2010, Blizzard Entertainment announced that on its forums for all games, users' accounts would display the real names tied to their accounts.[127] Blizzard announced the change following an agreement with Facebook to allow Facebook to connect persons who choose to become friends to share their real identity (Real ID, as Blizzard calls the feature). The integration of the feature into the forums on the Blizzard Entertainment site raised concerns amongst fans of the many game series Blizzard has created over the years.[128]
In December 2015, Blizzard sold an in-game battle pet named Brightpaw for $10 with all proceeds going to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.[145] This resulted in a new Blizzard record donation of over $1.7 million to Make-A-Wish.[146] In December 2016, Blizzard again sold a battle pet named Mischief for $10; it helped raise more than 2.5 million for Make-A-Wish.[147] In September 2017, Blizzard sold a battle pet named Shadow the fox for $10, with proceeds going to the Red Cross to help with disaster relief.[148]

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]
El conflicto centrado entre la raza humana y los orcos, que ha dado nombre a la época actual: La Era del Caos. Aunque desde la caída del Rey Terenas, su reino comienza a ser llamado El Reino Del Caos (Warcraft III). Por su parte, World of Warcraft distingue primeramente a los personajes creados como miembros de la Alianza o de la Horda.11​ La Alianza cuenta actualmente con humanos, enanos, gnomos, elfos de la noche, draeneis y huargen; mientras que la Horda la conforman orcos, troles, tauren, elfos de sangre, renegados (no-muertos) y goblins; por otra parte se tienen a el azote o caballeros de la muerte (comandados por el corrompido príncipe Arthas poseído por el rey Lich con un oculto objetivo) y al denominado legión ardiente bajo el mando de los demonios.
