World of Warcraft took the online gaming market by the storm, peaking at around 12 million subscribers. World of Warcraft currently holds the Guinness World Record for the most popular MMORPG by subscribers.
Your adventure begins by selecting a server, there are loads of official servers but there are also other, unofficial private servers like Elysium (where you can also buy elysium wow gold) or Light’s Hope (also possible to buy Light’s Hope gold). There are four types of WoW servers: Normal (a.k.a PvE) where gameplay is focused on defeating objectives instead of other players, PvP where players of two different factions can fight each other and compete for wow gold everywhere, Roleplay server which works like Normal but has strict interaction policies and are meant for people that wish to immerse themselves more in the world staying “in-character” during most of the social interactions, RPPvP is a combination of Roleplay and Player vs Player servers. Some regions also have realms segregated by language.
Once your character is created you have to now choose a side of the conflict, which will then determine the races you can pick. You can choose either Horde with races like: Tauren, Undead, Blood Elf, Orc, Goblin and Troll or Alliance with races like Gnome, Human, Draenei, Dwarf, Night Elf and Worgen. There is one neutral race, Pandaren, that have to choose their allegiance after the initial training, also if you want to play as Demon Hunter you will have to play as a Night Elf as this class is only available to them but, just like in case with Pandaren, you will be able to choose your side once your initial training is complete. To speed the training process you can also buy wow gold and use it to buy wow items.
Once you have decided upon the race and alliance you have to choose a class, there are total of 12 classes in the game and each race can play as a select few of them. Classes vary in their group roles and playstyles. There are three roles you can fulfill in a group: DPS (Damage Per Second) is someone whose sole purpose is to dish out as much damage as possible, Tanks are supposed to keep the attention of the dungeon monsters on themselves and soak all the damage possible and Healers job is to heal the group and cure various status effects. Each class has three specializations, while some have one specialization for each role others can be just, for example, pure DPS but with three different playstyles. Death Knights can be tanks and DPS utilizing frost, blood and death magic, all their specializations are melee. Demon Hunters have only two specs one tank and one dps one. Druids can fulfill four roles even tho they have three specs (feral specialization can be both: tank and melee dps), so effectively druids can heal, do melee DPS, tank and be ranged magic DPS. Hunters, one of the easiest and most popular classes for solo play have three DPS specs out of which two are ranged and one is melee. Mages have three ranged magic DPS specializations each regarding to different element: Fire, Frost and Arcane. Monks are versatile with three melee specs one for tanking, one for healing and one for dealing damage in similar way Paladins do. Rogues have three damaging specializations, all three in melee range. Shamans have two DPS specs one ranged and one melee and a healing one. Warriors have two melee dps and one tank specs and Warlocks are all about damage. Each class uses different weapons and focus on different gear stats, if you need to improve that you can always buy wow gold or if you want you can choose a hunter and grind wow gold to sell wow gold.
WoW boost – Character progress
As your characters progress they gain access to various talents, spells and skills, that require players to learn new tricks. Each character can pick two primary wow crafting professions such as tailoring, jewelcrafting, tailoring, engineering or two gathering professions like skinning, mining or herbalism. You can also mix the two to become self-sufficient in one particular field. Many people take two gathering professions and sell the gathered materials to grind wow gold to then sell gold to other players.
You can also join a guild that will allow you access to the guild chat, bonuses and other guild-exclusive things. Each character is bound to a single guild but you can have multiple toons in multiple guilds.
Most of World of Warcraft content revolvesaroundcompletion of quests given out by NPCs. Quests usually reward player with experience points, item and in-game currency. Quests will allow lead players through complicated lore and politics of World of Warcraft as well as unlock new areas and features. Quests usually include killing monsters (you can loot for wow gold) and lots of legwork. Even tho World of Warcraft can be played solo you have to remember that it’s mostly a multiplayer game that’s why most players group with others to face more challenging aspects of the game.
Most of the “endgame” involves content that can be only completed in a group, this way everyone can find a place to fit their gameplay as group content requires all variety of game styles and roles. When player dies to other players, mobs, bosses he comes back to life after running his ghost from the nearest graveyard to his body. Upon death players do not lose experience or items but if they decide to resurrect at the graveyard instead of running back they will be inflicted with a 15 minute debuff that will render them useless for combat.
There are few ways to test your skills against other players. Players on PvE servers can “flag” themselves for PvP combat with other flagged players from opposing faction. On PvP servers however there is no need to do this as PvP is free-for-all anywhere outside “newbie areas”. There are special, instanced, PvP zones called Battlegrounds where players compete in objective-based scenarios like Zone Control or Capture The Flag. There is also an arena where players form up teams and compete in gladiatorial matches.

World of Warcraft is a subscription based game which means you need to pay a fee every certain period of time to play. There are few options to do this: one/two/three/six month subscriptions and time cards from retailers. There is also option to buy yourself a WoW Token. WoW token can be bought from Blizzard and then sold in-game for wow gold to other players. Sometimes it is cheaper to buy wow gold and then buy wow token than to actually purchase token or a subscription. Each starter edition has a 30-day subscription included.
Upon release, World of Warcraft received mostly positive reviews. Even tho it was often brought up that WoW has some resemblance to other MMO titles like Everquest, their unique and revolutionary approached completely silenced this kind of criticism. Reviews praised World of Warcraft's accessibility and intuitiveness by reducing death penalties, easily recoverable hitpoints and leaning towards more casual players. Questing being the biggest part of character progression was a nice change from grind-for-experience models from other MMOs to day, progressing through quests not only made the leveling less tedious but also got players more involved with story behind World of Warcraft. Critics also praised character implementation and how each class felt viable and interesting with unique mechanics and talent trees that were designed in a way every player can make his own tweaks to his gameplay.
Lack of loading screens and gigantic world was also something unique at the time, even tho World of Warcraft graphics might seem a little bit dated in 2018, back then the environments were a breathtaking blend of cartoon, fantasy art and realism and well designed making it really hard to get lost. The game audio also got a very high praise. Assigning music to various zones and in-combat/off-combat situations improved the immersion greatly making each zone unique and atmospheric giving the game its own unique personality .Remember , if you lost your account and you don’t know how to unban wow account , You can find unban service offers typing unban wow account, in mmoauctions.com

After Blizzard announced free trial accounts, those RMT companies saw an opportunity to advertise their sell wow gold sites for free by creating endless trial accounts.
The gold sellers in WoW crashed the game economy so much that Blizzard had to take action against those that sell wow gold. In may 2007 Blizzard filed a complaint against Game Dollar LLC in U.S. federal court. Case lasted till February 2008 where the parties filed a consent decree where Game Dollar agreed to stop using in-game chat to advertise any business or sell services. But it wasn’t only Blizzard that went after those that sell wow gold, WoW player Antonio Hernandez filed a class action lawsuit against another RMT company IGE for interfering with the intended use of the game.
As the characters progress in World of Warcraft challenges they face become increasingly difficult and not everyone has the skills or the people to tackle them down, that is why people have been selling entire accounts with certain challenges completed or items obtained. The most expensive account in World of Warcraft was sold for nearly 10 thousand dollars in September 2007, unfortunately for the buyer it has been banned by Blizzard five days after the transaction was complete.
The practice of buy wow gold and sell wow gold has generated so much controversy that on February 2008 Blizzard released a statement addressing consequences of buying gold. Blizzard reported that a very high percentage of bought wow gold comes from hacked and stolen accounts.

WoW has gathered so many people together that its unique social interactions have been studied by various universities. Most notable of such studies was when something called Corrupted Blood Plague Incident occurred. It was in regards of patch 1.7 that opened up a new raid dungeon Zul’Gurub, games first 20 player dungeon where player faced off against Gurubashi Trolls. When the groups engaged the final boss players were stricken by a damage-over-time effect called “Corrupted Blood” which would drain players life over time. The disease was passed onto other players just by standing next to them, this effect was supposed to be confined within the instance but due to a glitch it managed to get out.
Within few hours Corrupted Blood had completely infected all major cities, low-level players were killed instantly and panic occurred. The Corrupted Blood plague resembled outbreak of a real-world epidemics so much that scientists are currently looking how MMORPG’s can be used to model human behaviour during such outbreaks in the real world.

In august 2012 WoW licensed building block toys by Megabloks released and in November 2007 DC Comics published the very first issue of World of Warcraft comic.
One of the WoW associated products released by Blizzard was their free-to-play digital card game Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft.
