Description Edit | History

User summary:

The world's numerically most successful MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game) and the game that has become a sociological phenomenon of unprecedented proportions.

In World of Warcraft, the player creates a character and advances through the vast world by completing quests, that vary from small errands to epic dragon-slaying missions. Most simple quests can be completed alone, while some require the slaying of so many or so powerful foes that players need to team up and cooperate in order to succeed. Game play consists of completing quests, increasing the character's abilities by levelling up, and also, once at the level maximum, finding better and fancier equipment.

The playable races are divided into two factions: The "Horde" consisting of orcs, trolls, tauren (bull-humans) and the Forsaken (rebel undead), and the "Alliance" consisting of humans, dwarves, gnomes and night elves. Players from different factions cannot communicate or form groups. While attacking players of the own faction is impossible, killing characters from the other faction is, although players can choose to play on servers where most player-versus-player combat is disabled.

World of Warcraft boasts 11 million accounts around the world, though certain sources claim that this includes the non-active accounts. The game is released in several languages, including English, French, German, Russian, Spanish and Korean.

World of Warcraft has seen two expansion packs, The Burning Crusade and Wrath of the Lich King. Both expansions raise the maximal possible level for players, The Burning Crusade introduces two extra playable races and Lich King introduces a special hero class available to all races.

From the box back:
Descend into the World of Warcraft and join thousands of mighty heroes in an online world of myth, magic, and limitless adventure. Explore jagged, snowy peaks; vast mountain fortresses; and harsh, winding canyons. Witness zeppelins flying over smoldering battlefields; battle in epic sieges -- a host of legendary experiences await. Enter the World of Warcraft…
