29 oct Las razas son importantes? Buenas a todos, quería preguntaros una simple duda. Me gustaría hacerme un mago para la classic y que fuera humano. He leído que los humanos tienen espíritu como mejora racial pero los gnomos tienen intelecto como mejora racial cosa que para un mago es mejor. Mi duda es si quiero estar por encima del resto, estoy obligado a cogerme un gnomo para marcar la pequeña diferencia o la diferencia es tan poca que no es importante. Es que todos sabemos que en bfa apenas es importante pero en classic me temo que seguro que tenía mucha más importancia, pero eso de ser el super enano del grupo y que mi equipo se veo diminuto no me hace mucha gracia jaja. Saludos y que ganas de classic!Iranth6 29 oct

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]

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]


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]
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.

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]

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.
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]
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
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]

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.
