Tanques: tienen la misión de atraer los enemigos recibir el daño de estos, ya que tienen la capacidad de aguantar mucho daño y sobrevivir más que otras clases. Son personajes con muchos atributos defensivos (bloquear, esquivar, parar), muchos puntos de vida y armadura para reducir al máximo el daño que reciben. El juego usa un sistema para medir el foco de ataque de los enemigos llamado amenaza. Los tanques son los que más puntos de amenaza suelen obtener durante el combate y, por ende, reciben todo el daño, sin embargo, poseen una capacidad ofensiva muy reducida (es ahí donde se necesita el daño de los DPS). El tanque por excelencia suele ser el guerrero protección, pero con las expansiones, han ido mejorando las demás clases, como al druida guardián, al paladín protección, añadiendo a los caballeros de la muerte para diversificar este rol, los monjes maestros cerveceros y los cazadores de demonios venganza añadidos en la expansión Legion
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).
30 oct Chamanes Tanke. Bueno pues vengo a preguntar si esto en el Classic era algo viable o una leyenda Urbana pues mi intención en el Classic sería un perfil bajo, sobre todo volver a revivir lo que era hacer mazmorras a la antigua usanza (me muero por hacer un Stralhome) así que mi intención es hacerme un tanke en la Horda pues llevo toda mi vida wowera en la Ali pero como veis mi main es un Guerrero y me gustaría variar (En la Horda no hay Paladines en Vainilla)Grenyar11 30 oct
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]
Draenor, el mundo de los orcos, está siendo destruido por una misteriosa fuerza llamada Vil. Un brujo orco llamado Gul'dan ha unido los clanes orcos en una Horda, creando un portal para pasar al mundo de Azeroth. Los orcos están utilizando la magia vil para absorber la vida de los draenei con el fin de alimentar el portal. Una vez abierto, Gul'dan lidera una pequeña avanzada para capturar prisioneros en Azeroth y sacrificarlos para poder traer al resto de la Horda a través del portal. A pesar de sus dudas, Durotan, jefe del clan Lobo Gélido, su esposa embarazada Draka y su mejor amigo Orgrimm Doomhammer se unen a esta avanzada. Mientras cruzan el portal, Draka entra en labor de parto. Cuando llegan a Azeroth, Gul'dan ayuda a Draka a dar a luz, pero el bebé aún es prematuro, por lo que Gul'dan drena la vida de un ciervo cercano y se la da al niño usando magia vil, al cual más tarde Durotan nombra Go'el.

Las misiones formaban parte íntegra del juego siendo la mayoría de las veces usadas para continuar la historia en el juego o para guiar al jugador a través de él.41​ El gran número de misiones en cada localización fue muy popular, así como las recompensas por completarlas.15​ Aunque en realidad no eliminaban la necesidad de repetir una tarea o matar de manera repetida a una criatura, la percepción que se tenía de esas acciones era distinta.42​ Las misiones hicieron que los jugadores exploraran cada sección del mundo, lo que repercutió negativamente en los jugadores sociales o de rol.41​ Las misiones que implicaban conseguir objetos de los cuerpos de las criaturas no fueron tan populares.42​ Algunos críticos mencionaron que la falta de misiones que obligan a los jugadores a agruparse hacía sentir a veces que el juego estaba diseñado para un solo jugador,43​ mientras que otros se quejaban de que las mazmorras (que se deben jugar en grupo) no eran fáciles para nuevos jugadores y costaban demasiado tiempo acabarlas.42​ En días posteriores a lanzarse el juego, algunas misiones tenían errores de software haciéndolas imposibles de completar,15​ mientras que la masiva presencia de jugadores nuevos en algunas áreas hacía que no existieran criaturas para matar,41​ o que los jugadores tuvieran que esperar turno para matar a alguna criatura en particular para poder completar misiones.15​

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 was the world's most popular MMORPG by player count of nearly 10 million in 2009.[5][6] The game had a total of over a hundred million registered accounts by 2014.[7] By 2017, the game had grossed over $9.23 billion in revenue, making it one of the highest-grossing video game franchises of all time. At BlizzCon 2017, a vanilla version of the game titled World of Warcraft Classic was announced, which planned to provide a way to experience the base game before any of its expansions launched. It went live at 3pm PDT[b] on August 26, 2019.[8][9]
To create a new character, in keeping with the storyline of previous Warcraft games, players must choose between the opposing factions of the Alliance or the Horde; Pandaren, which were added in Mists of Pandaria, do not commit to a faction until after the starting zone is completed. Characters from the opposing factions can perform rudimentary communication (most often just "emotes"), but only members of the same faction can speak, mail, group and join guilds. The player selects the new character's race, such as orcs or trolls for the Horde, or humans or dwarves for the Alliance.[13] Players must select the class for the character, with choices such as mages, warriors, and priests available.[14] Most classes are limited to particular races.

10 nov Bindeos para diferentes rangos de heal Muy buenas foreros, Tengo muchas ganas de jugar a la classic cuando salga, y me gustaría subirme un sacerdote. En su día ya jugué uno y me gustó mucho, pero durante aquella época era clicker y me había creado una UI en la que tenía varios rangos de curas (tenía 3 rangos en pantalla) y clickaba una u otra en función de la situación para ahorrar maná. Hoy en día no podría volver a ser clicker, imposible. Entonces, mi pregunta es: ¿hay alguien por aquí que jugase a vanilla he hiciera esto sin ser clicker? ¿Como os bindeasteis el teclado para lanzar los rangos bajos de heal? ¿Se os ocurre alguna manera intuitiva de como hacerlo? Saludos!Zorripa11 10 nov
When players create World of Warcraft accounts, they are asked to choose a username and password. Afterward, whenever they play World of Warcraft, they are asked to supply the same username and password in full. This is also the case when using account management facilities online. This type of authentication is vulnerable to keystroke logging. While this is not unique to World of Warcraft and is common to many MMORPGs, the game has been directly targeted with trojans being specifically crafted to capture account login details.[112] Attacks have been reported as early as May 2006 and may extend as far back as July 30, 2005.[113] The game does, however, allow players to save their account name to the program to allow the player to only have to type their password.[114]
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]
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]

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]
Los orcos arrasan muchas villas en Azeroth. Anduin Lothar, comandante de las fuerzas humanas del Reino de Ventormenta, revisa los cuerpos de algunos de los hombres asesinados, encontrándose con un mago llamado Khadgar, quien explica que está investigando los cuerpos al hallar en ellos indicios de magia vil. Khadgar convence al rey de Ventormenta, Llane Wrynn, de consultar con Medivh, el Guardián de Trisfal, y Llane envía a Lothar y Khadgar a la fortaleza de Medivh, la torre de Karazhan, para informarle sobre la presencia de magia vil en Azeroth. En la biblioteca de Karazhan, una figura fantasmagórica guía a Khadgar hasta un misterioso libro, que él toma.
El Lanzador de Blizzard es un programa diseñado para ejercer como punto de partida para los jugadores de World of Warcraft, sirve tanto para arrancar el juego como para actualizarlo. Fue incluido por primera vez en el parche 1.8.3. Además también incluye noticias, acceso a la página de asistencia técnica, acceso a los reinos de prueba (para probar parches antes de su lanzamiento al público), actualizaciones a Warden (sistema antitrampas implantado por Blizzard) y actualizaciones para el propio lanzador.27​ El parche 3.0.8 rediseñó el lanzador y permite cambiar la configuración del juego. Un nuevo rediseño en la versión 4.0.1 incluyó la actualización "al vuelo" permitiendo la descarga e instalación de actualizaciones de contenido mientras se está utilizando el juego.
Much of World of Warcraft play involves the completion of quests. These quests are usually available from NPCs.[19] Quests usually reward the player with some combination of experience points, items, and in-game money. Quests allow characters to gain access to new skills and abilities, as well as the ability to explore new areas.[20] It is through quests that much of the game's story is told, both through the quest's text and through scripted NPC actions.[21] Quests are linked by a common theme, with each consecutive quest triggered by the completion of the previous, forming a quest chain. Quests commonly involve killing a number of creatures, gathering a certain number of resources, finding a difficult to locate object, speaking to various NPCs, visiting specific locations, interacting with objects in the world, or delivering an item from one place to another to acquire experience and treasures.

30 oct Música en wow classic Dejando a un lado los temas más "polémicos" se puede hablar de la música que había en wow classic. Me refiero a que hubo un montón de canciones como la de Darnassus (D.E.P) o la de los tauren (no me refiero a Cima del Trueno) que cambiaron en Cataclysm,eso puede ser positivo porque no estamos acostumbrados a escuchar eso. Además de lo épica que era la canción que había al entrar al juego,no la he vuelto a escuchar desde entonces(1:19--2:16) Aquí abajo dejo un link https://youtu.be/eE5oaOOwInE Decidme que opinais,más canciones que hayan cambiado o lo que os apetezcaGele1 30 oct
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.
As with other MMORPGs, players control a character avatar within a game world in third- or first-person view, exploring the landscape, fighting various monsters, completing quests, and interacting with non-player characters (NPCs) or other players. Also similar to other MMORPGs, World of Warcraft requires the player to pay for a subscription by using a credit or debit card, using prepaid Blizzard game cards or using a WoW Token purchased in-game. Players without a subscription may use a trial account that lets the player character reach up to level 20 but has many features locked.[10]
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]

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.
Como en otros, los jugadores controlan un avatar dentro de un mundo en una vista de tercera persona (con la opción de jugar en primera persona) explorando el entorno, combatiendo contra varios monstruos y jugadores, completando misiones e interactuando con personajes no jugables (PNJ) u otros jugadores. El completar misiones ayudará a los jugadores a poder subir de nivel y de esta forma, podrán conseguir equipamiento que les ayudará más adelante a combatir a las distintas criaturas que vayan apareciendo en su camino.
