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]
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]
13 nov Buscando guild actual de cara a Vanilla Quizá más personas buscan lo mismo que yo, o quizá no, no lo se, pero aquí lanzo la petición que quizá ayude a algun@ más. Tengo en mente jugar a Vanilla una vez sea lanzado (de hecho, me he comprado la entrada virtual de cara a probar cómo lo están haciendo). Dado que lo que más añoro de los primeros años de WoW son los lazos que se creaban entre jugadores/personas, pues es jústamente lo que quiero recuperar. ----> Me agradó sobremanera el leveo del personaje. Poco, poco, poco a poco. Disfruté como con pocos juegos. ----> Nunca me atrajeron las raid finales del juego. No me atrajo en su momento MC, BW, y demás raid. ----> Siempre disfruté como un enano de las partys de 5 personas en instances de nivel 60 (ó 70 en Tbc, u 80 en Wotlk). Primero para conseguir la pieza X del set. Después para ayudar a los que subían y afrontar la dicultad que entrañaban así como enseñar las mecánicas a los más noveles. Eso mismo busco de cara al lanzamiento de Vanilla. Y apuesto a que habrá guild actuales que tendrán en mente lanzarse a Vanilla una vez sea lanzado. Estaría genial ir conociendo a sus miembros para cuando llegue el momento no ser completos desconocidos. Esa es la idea, y eso es lo que ando buscando. En hilos de este subforo hay personas cuyo deseo, parece ser, es crear malestar y conflicto. Y se que muchos así estarán en Vanilla una vez sea lanzado. No dispongo de tiempo ni paciencia para dedicar a ellos. Pero también he leído a gente que parece compartir la misma filosofía de juego que describo. Algunos, según vuestro avatar, tenéis guild y otros no. He pagado un mes con idea de contactar con algunos online e ir conociendo gente a la par que leveo algún personaje nuevo desde nivel 0 y así conocer las zonas post-Cata. He buscado a algunos, pero no os consigo ver online (por ejemplo, El Desván de Arthas no veo a nadie online, o de Los Harlington) Y bueno, eso es todo. A ver si alguien se anima ya sea para ofrecer guild o para indicar que busca lo mismo que yo, y podemos aquí ir conociendo gente online de cara a Vanilla.Elîsa24 13 nov
In April 2015, an alternate way to cover the subscription was introduced. A player may spend real money ($20 in North America and differing amounts in other regions) on a WoW Token, which is sold on the auction house for in-game gold that initially could only be used to add 30 days of playtime.[36] At the launch of the feature in NA, a token sold for 30k gold and 24 hours later sold for 20k gold, therefore the gold amount changes depending on what players are willing to spend and the supply. Subsequently, the amount that an NA token sells for remained selling at above 30,000 gold and the other Battle.net regions are well above that value. Once a player buys a token on the auction house, it is account bound and cannot be resold. In February 2017, the WoW Token can also be exchanged for $15 in Battle.net balance that can be used as credit for purchases in most of Blizzard's games as well as in Destiny 2.[39]
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]

Tras los eventos narrados en Wrath of the Lich King, Arthas ha muerto, y la guerra en Rasganorte parece haber terminado, ya que la Plaga está controlada por Bolvar Fordragon, convertido en el nuevo Rey Exánime, el carcelero de los malditos. Pero entonces, misteriosos terremotos comienzan a sacudir toda la faz de Azeroth, y poco después, comienzan una serie de ataques elementales contra las capitales de la Alianza y la Horda. Estos ataques son el preludio del resurgimiento del Dragón Aspecto corrupto Alamuerte, que las destruirá, extendiendo su dañino poder por los dos continentes. Cinco años después, en los que se suceden los eventos narrados en la novela World of Warcraft: The Shattering, Ventormenta y Orgrimmar están en proceso de reconstrucción, y la faz del mundo en Azeroth ha cambiado por completo tras los ataques de Alamuerte, que han reducido a cenizas algunas zonas y han provocado violentos maremotos y terremotos que han partido literalmente la tierra en trozos, inundando algunas zonas y haciendo resurgir otras. Alamuerte ha vuelto con un solo objetivo, el de destruir Azeroth, y no se detendrá hasta conseguirlo.
