One of the intriguing things about the old Vivendi structure was that, even when Martin Tremblay joined to run Vivendi's publishing, it was specified: "World Of Warcraft creator Blizzard Entertainment has been designated a stand-alone division reporting to VU Games' CEO, and is not part of Tremblay's product development mandate.
14 nov Mapas de mazmorras? Hola a todos. Acaba de venirme a la mente que en antaño las mazmorras no tenían mapas (si no recuerdo mal, los empezaron a meter hacia el final de la WotlK), lo cual hacía que fuese muy facil perderse y no saber por donde ir para limpiar ciertas mazs. Es cierto que las hemos hecho hasta la saciedad y las tenemos muy vistas, aunque hay alguna que sigue siendo un autentico laberinto (maraudon, roca negra, sunken temple... [no hay que olvidar que lo que vemos de esas mazs hoy en dia si entramos por el buscador es ínfimo a lo que era antes, especialmente sunken temple que ahora es una autentica risa, la han reducido como un 80%]), pero aun así siempre es bienvenida la ayuda y la visión que te da el mapa, sobretodo para saber donde están tus compañeros de grupo. Ahora, con la tonteria de que la gente se ofende hasta con lo de que el WoW Classic tendrá el modo daltónico solo porque el original no lo tenía, quería abrir un debate sobre esto. Os gustaría que hubiesen mapas de las mazmorras? O preferís la experiencia 100% vanilla? Desde mi punto de vista, no me gustaría que los metiesen, soy de los que prefiere una experiencia lo más fiel posible, aunque no soy los que buscan el 100% de fidelidad, pues las mejoras graficas por ejemplo me parecen un acierto, siempre y cuando te permitan elegir los graficos que quieras. Un saludo ;)Monórquido17 14 nov
Years ago, in the ruined temple of Atal'Hakkar, loyal priests of the Blood God Hakkar the Soulflayer attempted to summon the wrathful deity's avatar into the world. But his followers, the Atal'ai priesthood, discovered that the Soulflayer could only be summoned within the Gurubashi tribe's ancient capital, Zul'Gurub. Newly reborn in this jungle fortress, Hakkar took control of the Gurubashi tribe and mortal champions of the trolls' mighty animal gods. The Soulflayer's dark influence was halted when the Zandalari tribe recruited heroes and invaded Zul'Gurub.
As characters progress in World of Warcraft and take on some of the toughest challenges, many of the rewards received are bound to that character and cannot be traded, generating a market for the trading of accounts with well-equipped characters. The highest noted World of Warcraft account trade was for £5000 (€7000, US$9,900) in early September 2007. The high price was due to the character possessing items that at the time were owned by only a handful out of the millions of active players, due to the difficulty in acquiring them. However, Blizzard banned the account five days after the purchase.[142]
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.
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]

In December 2015, Blizzard sold an in-game battle pet named Brightpaw for $10 with all proceeds going to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.[145] This resulted in a new Blizzard record donation of over $1.7 million to Make-A-Wish.[146] In December 2016, Blizzard again sold a battle pet named Mischief for $10; it helped raise more than 2.5 million for Make-A-Wish.[147] In September 2017, Blizzard sold a battle pet named Shadow the fox for $10, with proceeds going to the Red Cross to help with disaster relief.[148]
Existen un total de trece razas jugables16​ divididas en dos facciones, la Alianza y la Horda, siendo la decimotercera raza (Pandaren) compartida por ambos bandos.

En la mayoría de las zonas, la Alianza y la Horda están en guerra una con la otra, aunque existen zonas neutrales como la ciudad flotante de Dalaran o la Ciudadela de Shattrath, estas zonas son conocidas como santuarios.
