What is World of Warcraft? World of Warcraft (also known as WoW) is an MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role-playing game ) that was released 23 November 2004 by Blizzard Entertainment. It is the fourth game released from the Warcraft franchise and the action takes place in the dream Warcraft universe, which has been presented in Warcraft: Orcs and Humans in 1994. The game's action takes place inside the Warcraft world of Azeroth, around four years after the occasions at the finish of Blizzard's past Warcraft release, Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne. Tempest Entertainment reported World of Warcraft on September 2, 2001. The game was released on November 23, 2004, on the tenth celebration of the Warcraft franchise. The 1st expansion released on World of Warcraft was The Burning Crusade, it was released on January 16, 2007. The 2nd expansion released was Wrath of the Lich King, it was released on November 13, 2008. The 3rd expansion released was Cataclysm, it was released on December 7, 2010. The 4th expansion that released was Mists of Pandaria and it was released on September 25, 2012. The 5th expansion released was Warlords of Draenor, it was released on November 13, 2014. The 6th expansion released was Legion, was released on August 30, 2016. And we are now getting close and closer to the 7th expansion which is speculated to be Naga-themed. The game's peak was of 12 million active subscriptions in October 2010. Today, the game mentains itself very popular still owning the title of world's most subscribed MMRPG, with Blizzard's final report of 5.5 million subscriptions in October 2015, and holds the World Record (and it will probably keep it long time from now) for the most popular MMORPG by subscribers. In January 2014 it was made public in an annouce from Blizzard that there have been created over 100 milion accounts on the game, that number rapidly increasing. 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; Pandarens, 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. Players must select the class for the character, with choices such as mages, warriors, and priests available. Most classes are limited to particular races. As characters become more developed, they gain various talents and skills, requiring the player to further define the abilities of that character. 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. 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. Much of World of Warcraft play involves the completion of quests. These quests are usually available from NPCs. 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. It is through quests that much of the game's story is told, both through the quest's text and through scripted NPC actions. 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. World of Warcraft is set in the same universe as the Warcraft series of real-time strategy games and has a similar art direction. 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.
