También existe aparentemente un orden cronológico entre una y otra marca. Warcraft apareció primero y puso los elementos históricos del universo de Warcraft en juego, estableciendo así las enemistades y relaciones entre razas y grupos, origen de todas las guerras.6​ World of Warcraft, por su parte, se ha dedicado a explotar las posibilidades del libre desenvolvimiento dentro del mundo establecido por los juegos anteriores, y podría decirse que se desarrolla en el tiempo presente de este mundo fantástico, después de Warcraft I, II y III. Esto es en su mayoría cierto; sin embargo, este orden cronológico no siempre se respeta, World of Warcraft también da nombre a algunos productos que regresan en la historia de Warcraft y la amplían, como la novela World of Warcraft: Rise of the Horde.
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.
In late 2007, a series of television commercials for the game began airing featuring pop culture celebrities such as Mr. T, William Shatner, and Verne Troyer discussing the virtues of the character classes they play in the game.[153] A Spanish commercial featuring Guillermo Toledo, and a French commercial featuring Jean-Claude Van Damme, were also televised.[154] Two more were shown in November 2008, featuring Ozzy Osbourne and Steve Van Zandt.[155] Another commercial in the series, which began airing in November 2011, featured Chuck Norris and played on the Internet phenomenon of "Chuck Norris facts".[156]
A principios de 2001 Blizzard comenzó a publicar novelas de sus tres universos principales, siendo la primera novela de Warcraft Day of the Dragon.7​ Estas novelas exploran importantes eventos y problemas del mundo de Warcraft, como la liberación de la reina de los dragones, Alexstrasza (en el texto citado arriba), o el nacimiento del nuevo líder de la Horda orca, el jefe de guerra Thrall (narrado en Warcraft: Lord of the Clans). En la diversificación consecuente del universo de Warcraft se comenzaron a emplear notorios elementos orientales en las imágenes y conceptos del mundo y personajes, como los cuerpos y armas desproporcionadas y la idea que tiene de los elfos de cejas y orejas muy largas.8​
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.

The Corrupted Blood plague so closely resembled the outbreak of real-world epidemics that scientists are currently looking at the ways MMORPGs or other massively distributed systems can model human behavior during outbreaks. The reaction of players to the plague closely resembled previously hard-to-model aspects of human behavior that may allow researchers to more accurately predict how diseases and outbreaks spread amongst a population.[149]

In the United States, Canada, and Europe, Blizzard distributes World of Warcraft via retail software packages.[50] The software package includes 30 days of gameplay for no additional cost. To continue playing after the initial 30 days, additional play time must be purchased using a credit card or prepaid game card. The minimum gameplay duration that a player can purchase is 30 days using a credit card, or 60 using a prepaid game card. A player also has the option of purchasing three or six months of gameplay at once for a 6–15% discount.[51] In Australia, the United States, and many European countries, video game stores commonly stock the trial version of World of Warcraft in DVD form, which includes the game and 20 levels[52] of gameplay, after which the player would have to upgrade to a retail account by supplying a valid credit card, or purchasing a game card as well as a retail copy of the game.

Warcraft y World of Warcraft son series que comparten la misma mitología, el universo de Warcraft, pero existen algunas diferencias que distinguir entre los dos títulos. En primer lugar, hablando de la tradición de sus videojuegos, el primero tiene una sobresaliente trayectoria dentro del género de estrategia en tiempo real, mientras que el segundo se ha enfocado en ser un juego de rol de aventuras en línea.

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]
08 nov ¿Volverá la noche? Espero que mantenga la diferencia del día y de la noche que existía en el classic. Me gustaba ver el atardecer y ver como se ponía el sol mientras jugaba. También es verdad que la gente que sólo puede jugar de noche no veían la luz del sol y comprendo que se les hiciera pesado. También hecho de menos los fenómenos atmosféricos. Siempre recordaré una tarde en Feralas con la niebla más espesa que haya visto. Literalmente no veía a los enemigos hasta que los tenía encima. Aunque repitieras las zonas, los cambios de clima ayudaban a ver las cosas de distinta manera. Creo que esto será muy bien recibido por la comunidad. Las pociones de crear noche de la Feria de la Luna Negra han sido un gran éxito.Nümayos11 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]
To mark the release of Hearthstone, Blizzard released the Hearthsteed mount for World of Warcraft players. The mount is obtained through winning three games in Arena or Play mode.[167] Widely advertised on various World of Warcraft websites, this promotion encourages World of Warcraft players to try Hearthstone and marked the first significant crossover implemented between Blizzard games.

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.
