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.

World of Warcraft was first announced by Blizzard at the ECTS trade show in September 2001.[43] Released in 2004, development of the game took roughly 4–5 years, including extensive testing. The 3D graphics in World of Warcraft use elements of the proprietary graphics engine originally used in Warcraft III.[43] The game was designed to be an open environment where players are allowed to do what they please.[44] Quests are optional and were designed to help guide players, allow character development, and to spread characters across different zones to try to avoid what developers called player collision.[45] The game interface allows players to customize appearance and controls, and to install add-ons and other modifications.[46]

The Corrupted Blood plague incident was one of the first events to affect entire servers. Patch 1.7 saw the opening of Zul'Gurub, the game's first 20-player raid dungeon where players faced off against a tribe of trolls. Upon engaging the final boss, players were stricken by a debuff called "Corrupted Blood" which would periodically sap their life. The disease was passed on to other players simply by being near infected players. Originally this malady was confined within the Zul'Gurub instance, but it made its way into the outside world by way of hunter pets or warlock minions that contracted the disease.

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
Blizzard garnered criticism for its decision in January 2006 to ban guilds from advertising sexual orientation preferences. The incident occurred after several players were cited for "harassment" after advocating a group that was a gay-straight alliance.[133][134] Blizzard later reversed the decision to issue warnings to players promoting LGBT-friendly guilds.
Para aprender una profesión, hay que acudir a un instructor de la misma en las ciudades y algunos poblados. Todas las profesiones tienen distintos niveles, y cada nivel permite mejorar la habilidad hasta un número máximo de puntos, que se suben practicando en la profesión, ya sea recogiendo o fabricando algo. La cantidad de puntos permitirá recoger materiales más difíciles, así como aprender a fabricar objetos más poderosos. Todas las profesiones pueden aprenderse desde nivel 5, salvo la profesión secundaria arqueología, que requiere que el jugador sea nivel 20.24​
Intent on settling in Durotar, Thrall's Horde expanded its ranks by inviting the undead Forsaken to join orcs, tauren, and trolls. Meanwhile, dwarves, gnomes, and the ancient night elves pledged their loyalties to the Alliance, guided by the human kingdom of Stormwind. After Stormwind's king, Varian Wrynn, mysteriously disappeared, Highlord Bolvar Fordragon served as Regent but his service was affected by the mind control of the black dragon Onyxia, who ruled in disguise as a human noblewoman. As heroes investigated Onyxia's manipulations, the ancient elemental lord Ragnaros resurfaced to endanger both the Horde and Alliance.[42] The heroes of the Horde and Alliance defeated Onyxia and sent Ragnaros back to the Elemental Plane.

World of Warcraft is set in the same universe as the Warcraft series of real-time strategy games and has a similar art direction.[10] World of Warcraft contains elements from fantasy, steampunk, and science fiction: such as gryphons, dragons, and elves; steam-powered automata; zombies, werewolves, and other horror monsters; as well as time travel, spaceships, and alien worlds.
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]

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]

Before the introduction of World of Warcraft's seventh expansion "Battle for Azeroth", both "Normal" and "RP" servers were each divided into two separate categories; PvE and PvP servers. This has since been removed after the implementation of the "War Mode" option, which allows any player (of level 20 and higher) on any server to determine whether they want to actively participate in PvP combat or not, by enabling War Mode in two of the game's capital cities.

Los cazadores de demonios, discípulos de Illidan Tempestira, cargan con un oscuro legado que atemoriza a aliados y enemigos por igual. Los Illidari se sirven de magia vil y magia caótica, energías que durante eones han amenazado Azeroth y que, según ellos, son esenciales para hacer frente a la Legión Ardiente. Con los poderes de los demonios a los que han asesinado, los Illidari desarrollan rasgos demoníacos que provocan repulsión y pavor entre sus congéneres, los elfos.
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]

The fifth expansion, Warlords of Draenor, was announced at BlizzCon 2013 on November 8, 2013,[72][73] and entered beta on June 27, 2014.[74] Warlords of Draenor was released on November 13, 2014.[75] On August 6, 2015, Blizzard announced the sixth expansion, Legion, at Gamescom 2015.[76] In November 2015, the Legion's alpha testing started and in April 2016 the beta test started; the Legion expansion was released on August 30, 2016. The seventh expansion, Battle for Azeroth, was released worldwide on August 13 and 14 (depending on location) 2018.[77]

02 nov ¿Qué "modernizarías" para la Classic? ¡Hola! Con el hype que la Classic está creando, a menudo me pregunto si la gente quiere realmente una Vanilla calcada a la que tuvimos, o una "remasterización" lo suficientemente fiel a su predecesor que permita a los jugadores revivir experiencias pasadas con matices modernos. Creo que es justo pensar que, de entre los jugadores que esperan la Classic con mucha emoción, no a todos les pueda gustar la idea de volver al pasado de forma tan radical. A lo mejor me equivoco. He intentado hacer un poco de brainstorming sobre las diferentes características del juego. He puesto varias y muy genéricas (me dejo muchas), para que os inspiréis más rápido. No significa que quiera cambiar todo lo enumerado, ni por asomo. Personalmente, me gustaría ver texturas e interfaz algo actualizadas, y a lo mejor la transfiguración, aunque creo que arruinaría un poco la experiencia. Y no me convence demasiado lo de mantener los parches con sus desequilibrios ya bien conocidos, crearía una diferencia abismal de popularidad de clase desde el día 1. Y vosotros... ¿cambiaríais algo o lo dejaríais todo igual?

Emplea el sistema de maná y aunque algunos de sus ataques causan gran daño instantáneo, prefieren silenciar a sus enemigos. Son especialistas en el control de multitudes y escape debido a sus múltiples hechizos de efecto de área y hechizos que sirven para evitar luchar con varios enemigos a la vez. Son un verdadero incordio para los melees en JcJ ya que pueden teletransportarse, y ralentizar al contrincante, también pueden llegar a rellenar casi por completo su mana utilizando Evocación, aunque sin duda esta clase es famosa por la Polimorfia, habilidad que convierte en oveja.Hacen gran DPS quemando a sus enemigos (rama fuego), menos DPS pero mas supervivencia y control con el hielo ( rama escarcha) o ataques devastadores pero caros en mana (Rama Arcana). Además tienen la habilidad de abrir portales hacia las ciudades principales de su facción para teleportar otros jugadores hacia ellas, y también teleportarse ellos mismos. Son la única clase del juego que puede crear sus propios alimentos usando mana.
