The practice of buying or selling gold in World of Warcraft has generated significant controversy.[143] On February 21, 2008, Blizzard released a statement concerning the consequences of buying gold. Blizzard reported that an "alarmingly high" proportion of all gold bought originates from "hacked" accounts. The article also stated that customers who had paid for character leveling services had found their accounts compromised months later, with all items stripped and sold for virtual gold. The article noted that leveling service companies often used "disruptive hacks ... which can cause realm performance and stability issues".[144] In April 2015, introduced a means to sell in-game gold for real money. A player may spend $20 on a one-month "game time token" that can be sold for in-game gold on the auction house.[36]

30 oct Os imaganias que a Blizzard... se le va la olla y con el exito de vanilla empiezan a sacar contenido nuevo siguiendo la filosofia del Clasic??? Imaginad que blizzard ve que la gente reniega del wow retail y se lo pasa mejor en Vanilla. Como exprimir a toda esa comunidad con fecha de caducidad, ya que el contenido es el que es. Cambiar retail para hacerlo mas Clasic, o meter contenido nuevo a Clasic qeu siempre quisieron meter y no pudieron. O hacer otra linea temporal. O alargar los sucesos antes de la burning.Lórdwarwick14 30 oct
In patch 2.1, Blizzard responded to this by adding additional anti-spam mechanics including whisper throttling and the report spam function. Additionally, trial accounts are prevented from speaking in the public chat channels (although they may speak to players within range or whisper to other players that have first whispered to them), participating in in-game trades, and using the Auction House and the mail feature, among other limitations.

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.

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]
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.

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.
The appearance of the game world was praised by critics. Most popular was the fact that a player could run from one end of the continent to the other without having to pause at a "loading screen" while part of the game is retrieved from storage.[86] The environment was described as "breathtaking". Players found it difficult to become lost, and each area in the game world had a distinct look that blended from one to the next.[21] Critics described the environment as "a careful blend of cartoon, fantasy art, and realism".[81] The game was found to run smoothly on a range of computer systems,[10] although some described it as basic,[21] and mentioned that the bloom light rendering effect can blur things.[20] One reviewer described the ability to fly over long stretches of scenery as "very atmospheric".[83] The user interface was liked, being described as "simple", with tooltips helping to get the player started.[10]

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]
Warcraft es una marca comercial de Blizzard Entertainment que ha sido ampliamente difundida y diversificada a partir del videojuego Warcraft: Orcs & Humans (1994), uno de los primeros en su género. Por extensión también implica a la marca World of Warcraft, que nace del videojuego de rol multijugador masivo en línea -por sus siglas en inglés, MMORPG- del mismo nombre.1​El universo de Warcraft que se encuentra en ambas marcas está ambientado en una fantasía épica moderna propia de El Señor de los Anillos o Dungeons & Dragons y tiene su inspiración inicial en los juegos del universo de Warhammer Fantasy[cita requerida], representando combates entre el bando de los humanos y el de los orcos, los cuales son seres fantásticos adaptados de la mitología clásica europea a la fantasía actual, pero con una concepción y estilos muy propios.

World of Warcraft won several awards from critics upon release, including Editor's Choice awards.[10][20] In addition, it won several annual awards from the media, being described as the best game in the role-playing and MMORPG genres.[87] The graphics and audio were also praised in the annual awards, with the cartoonish style[88] and overall sound makeup being noted.[89] The game was also awarded Best Mac OS X Entertainment Product at the 2005 Apple Design Awards.[90] Computer Games Magazine named World of Warcraft the best computer game of 2004, and the magazine's Steve Bauman described his "feeling that Blizzard has analyzed every element of every existing game, pulled out the best ones, and then lovingly lavished an absurd amount of attention to their implementation." It also won the magazine's "Best Art Direction", "Best Original Music" and "Best Interface" awards.[91]
Players who purchase Warlords of Draenor Collector's or Digital Deluxe Edition receive an Orc themed card back in Hearthstone.[168] Heroes of the Storm players who reach level 20 receive the Grave Golem battle pet in World of Warcraft and after reaching level 100 in World of Warcraft receive an Ironside Dire Wolf mount in Heroes of the Storm.[169] Starting on March 11, 2016, players who level a character to 20 in WoW, which can be completed with the free starter edition, earn the alternate Paladin hero Lady Liadrin in Hearthstone.[170]

Deep within Blackrock Mountain, the black dragon Nefarian conducted twisted experiments with the blood of other dragonflights. Intent on seizing the entire area for his own, he recruited the remaining Dark Horde, a rogue army that embraced the demonic bloodlust of the old Horde. These corrupt orcs, trolls, and other races battled against Ragnaros and the Dark Iron dwarves for control of the mountain. Nefarian created the twisted chromatic dragons and a legion of other aberrations in his bid to form an army powerful enough to control Azeroth and continue the legacy of his infamous father, Deathwing the Destroyer. Nefarian was vanquished by the heroes from the Horde and the Alliance.

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
Es la clase más conocida del juego, es especialista en combate cuerpo a cuerpo. Según sus talentos pueden desempeñarse como Tanques (Talentos Protección) o DPS (Armas [más para JcJ] y furia [especializado en JcE]). Utilizan las armaduras de placas a partir del nivel 40 y todo tipo de armas exceptuando las varitas y los bastones. Utilizan la Ira como recurso para usar sus habilidades, esta aumenta cuando el guerrero está en combate, lo que le permite usar sus facultades, pero desaparece rápidamente al salir de este. Son la única clase del juego que puede emplear armas de dos manos en una sola (en rama Furia).
