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
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]
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 runs natively on both Macintosh and Windows platforms. Boxed copies of the game use a hybrid CD to install the game, eliminating the need for separate Mac and Windows retail products. The game allows all users to play together, regardless of their operating system. Although there is no official version for any other platform, support for World of Warcraft is present in Windows API implementations Wine and CrossOver allowing the game to be played under Linux and FreeBSD.[47] In addition, the Windows client allows for direct OpenGL rendering in Wine, making performance on Unix-like platforms comparable to the native performance seen on Windows.[48] While a native Linux client is neither released nor announced by Blizzard, in January 2011 IT journalist Michael Larabel indicated in a Phoronix article that an internal Linux client might exist but is not released due to the non-standardization of the Linux distro ecosystem.[49]
While a character can be played on its own, players can group with others to tackle more challenging content. Most end-game challenges are designed in a way that they can only be overcome while in a group. In this way, character classes are used in specific roles within a group.[19][22] World of Warcraft uses a "rested bonus" system, increasing the rate that a character can gain experience points after the player has spent time away from the game.[15] When a character dies, it becomes a ghost—or wisp for Night Elf characters—at a nearby graveyard.[20] Characters can be resurrected by other characters that have the ability or can self-resurrect by moving from the graveyard to the place where they died. If a character is past level ten and they resurrect at a graveyard, the items equipped by the character degrade, requiring in-game money and a specialist NPC to repair them. Items that have degraded heavily become unusable until they are repaired. If the location of the character's body is unreachable, they can use a special "spirit healer" NPC to resurrect at the graveyard. When the spirit healer revives a character, items equipped by the character at that time are further degraded, and the character is significantly weakened by what is in-game called "resurrection sickness" for up to ten minutes, depending on the character's level. This "resurrection sickness" does not occur and item degradation is less severe if the character revives by locating its body, or is resurrected by another player through spells or special items.[23][24]
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]

En Warcraft III la cantidad de razas y héroes creció más y las relaciones entre estos personajes se entretejieron de modo más complejo. A su vez, se establecieron algunas ideas sobre la cosmogonía y muchos elementos sobre la historia antigua para justificar una lucha ancestral de proporciones mayores entre los seres creados por las deidades metálicas llamadas titanes y los demonios liderados por el corrupto titan Sargeras. La lucha, sin embargo, no fue exclusiva entre la creación y los demonios, sino que entre las criaturas continuaron los odios raciales reforzados por las tradiciones bélicas. De este modo, la Alianza se mantuvo enemiga de la Horda hasta el final de la Tercera Gran Guerra con todo y que aparecieron nuevos peligros, como el Azote de los muertos vivientes, que comenzó como una simple plaga, o los territoriales elfos nocturnos. Al final, fueron cuatro las civilizaciones o razas las que se enfrentaron en la guerra: Los humanos, los orcos, los muertos vivientes y los elfos nocturnos, sólo después de haberse desgastado lucharon contra la invasión de los demonios liderados por Archimonde.
15 nov Expansiones Después del Classic Esto fue lo que comentaron en la Blizzcon: "P: ¿Tendrá WoW: Classic el mismo parche siempre o tendrá sus propias expansiones? En este momento estamos intentando restaurar la versión de 2006. Una vez que el juego esté disponible el próximo verano, escucharemos a los jugadores y haremos lo correcto para el juego, pero tendremos que ver." Veo que dejan la puerta abierta pero me preocupa lo de escuchar a los jugadores. Las directrices de los veteranos ya han estado claras y se les ha comunicado por activa o por pasiva. No se si dentro de 3 años tendré otra perspectiva pero ahora mismo no quiero sorpresas en verano.Nümayos35 15 nov
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.

04 nov Items desaparecidos en classic? Ashbringer? Buenas. Tengo una duda sobre la classic. Cuando salga se podrán obtener items q fueron retirados del juego antes de la llegada de la expansión? Me viene a la mente por ejemplo la corrupted ashbringer. https://es.wowhead.com/item=22691/crematoria-corrupta Acaba de terminar la Blizz y creo q no se ha comentado nada al respectoAffrupto2 04 nov
