The Beginning…


“For many years, Sargeras the fallen titan plotted to wipe out all Azeroth life. Sargeras possessed Medivh, a human sorcerer, and forced him to contact Gul’dan on Draenor, an orc warlock. Sargeras’ demon servants from the Burning Legion tried to corrupt once-peaceful orcs, and make them into the bloodthirsty Horde. The Dark Portal was a portal created by Medivh, Gul’dan and created to allow the cursed forces into Azeroth. They clashed against the Human Nation of Stormwind. Human champions such as Anduin Lothar, who were aided by half-orc Garona fought bravely for their kingdom. But, Stormwind was defeated by the Horde. During the tragic fall of the city, Garona betrayed all her friends and assassinated King Llane Wrynn. This sealed the defeat .’

World of Warcraft was created by Blizzard entertainment. It is an F2P/monthly-subscription-based MMORPG. The original release was in 2004, and seven updates have been made to it. The game’s rich lore and world building has helped it retain its popularity in comparison to other games. There are thousands of quests to be done, as well as multiple dungeons. The landscape is constantly changing and evolving, and more quests will continue to be added. You can view it from both the first and third person perspectives.


Basics

WoW takes place in Azeroth, and is four years after Warcraft III : The Frozen Throne ends. This segment sees Thrall rebuilding his Horde army in order to take the Durotar region. The Alliance is trying to stop him. Every expansion adds layers to the story.

The first step is to choose a Realm where they want to play. Every Realm is its own server with a unique gameplay experience and language. You can choose between Normal and RP servers.

  • Normal mode allows for safer switching between PVP or non-PVP interaction. They can choose who or whether to fight an opponent faction member.
  • Users can use RPGs to develop their characters and interact with others on the server. Each category has a number of servers, each one categorized according the current player count. These servers are classified according to their population level. Higher servers have more items to sell and offer more chances for interaction with players. Log-in times are longer for larger servers. Each straight RPG server will have its own rules and guidelines. This is to ensure that players are not banned.
  • Players can create permanent PvP mode on any server by selecting War Mode.

After connecting, players have the option to decide whether or not they want their character level to increase by simply playing all expansions. New players have the option to start at the current expansion’s level cap. The Battle for Azeteroth is the most recent expansion. Players can therefore begin their adventures at level 110 as this was the level limit for Legion. Level boosters can only be bought for real money.

Important to know that the F2P Starter Edition allows players to try out the game until they reach level 20. It allows players to test the game prior to purchasing it. However, this edition has limitations such as inability to use mounts, access the Auction House or participate in quests that require level expansion or participation.

After a player selects a server, the game opens to their ‘Character Creator’ screen. WoW gives players the option to choose from 13 different races. These are divided into 12 classes with the possibility of playing as combinations of 3 main roles or 2 factions. Each character can be tested at 100 level by new players who play through the special trial sequence. The trial is limited in time, but players can get to know the character and feel comfortable with it before they commit to playing. Players can always return to the same character or play another one at any time. Players can choose to enhance each character. You can unlock more character types by completing certain tasks in the game. Every race has its unique set of capabilities.

The initial character creation phase allows players to set the skin, hairstyle, facial features, and gender of their characters. Some features can be altered at the barbershop, but others like the skin color cannot. Special paid services are available for people who wish to change their appearance or race. Players can also create completely new characters by paying for special services. Each payer has the ability to save 50 characters. Every race has the ability to choose from certain classes. It all depends on the WoW history.

Classes

The RPG adventuring archetypes of classes are Warrior and Druid. Others are more common than others, such as Demon Hunters. Every class offers a unique gameplay experience, as well as different role abilities and abilities. Death Knights can only be unlocked once the character has reached level 55. Demon Hunters, however, are available only at level 70. Many classes start at a different location. This means that almost all class adventures will be original.

Roles

The game has three specializations or roles: Tank, Tank and Healer. There are many classes that can perform all of these roles. Some classes, like Hunters and Mages, have only one role while others such as Monks and Druid, can play them all. These roles can be found below:


  • Tanks

They are responsible for protecting DPSes and the Healer from damage, and absorbing any damage that is caused by them. As Tanks, Warriors, Death Knights and Druids as well as Demon Hunters and Monks can be used.


  • Healers

The main job of a Healer is to save other members from being attacked. Priority will be given to the Tank. As Healers, Shamans, Monks Priests Druids and Paladins are all eligible.


  • Dealers in Damage / Damage Per Seconds (DPS

DPS can either be melee- or ranged. Certain characters can have multiple specs, which allows players to swap between the roles they are interested in. It is common for 3 DPSs to be in a party. This means that they have the longest waiting time in queues for quest requests. DPSes can be performed by all classes.

Factions

WoW has two factions, the Alliance and Horde. Because each group has its own history and lore, factions aren’t necessarily categorized as ‘good’ or ‘evil. They do however have specific characteristics that can impact gameplay and playstyle. They each have their capital cities and respective zones.

Important to remember that characters can form groups with other players of their factions. So friends who wish to play together should ensure they choose the same faction while creating their characters. Panderas, the neutral faction that has full control over their factions can do so at a later stage.

Guilds

Only players can join guilds on the same server they’re playing on. Players should look for guilds that have active members and regularly scheduled events when choosing a guild. Otherwise, they’ll be just wasting their time. When choosing a guild, players should consider whether they are looking for PvP, raid parties or an RPG adventure. There are different guilds that cater to players of different levels and ratings. It is crucial that players of the same level are able to grow together, and have greater tolerance for mistakes by noobs.

Professions

A character can gain two primary professions once they reach Level 5. They also have the option to learn four additional professions through Profession Trainers. The skill can be broken into two components: crafting and gathering. Gathering is the act of gathering all necessary items to make a specific item. You can do this by going on quests or looting corpses or buying the items. Or you could hunt or harvest. Alchemy and Inscription are the primary professions. Secondary professions are also available that can be learned by players to complement their primary careers. The Inscription and Alchemy trades can both benefit from herbalism, which is needed to make alchemy formulas and inks. Additional secondary occupations are first aid, archeology, and cooking.

You can create many items using the skills you have, including armor, weapons and potions. Players are restricted in the professions they can choose from so players will need to purchase or acquire additional items through other means. You can trade directly with players or purchase other players’ crafting items via the auction house. While it is possible to forget about a profession in order learn a new one, all of your progress won’t be lost. You should also consider the costs of studying a profession. Alchemy, Mining, and Herbalism require little financial investment, while mastering Blacksmith is.

Collectibles, customizations and items

  • Pets

    The creatures players can summon and tame are called pets. They can also be classified into one of three types, combat guardian, companions or both. To aid players in battle, combat pets are sometimes partially controllable and usually class-based. You can summon guardian pets, but they cannot be controlled. Once summoned, they provide some protection and can be used by certain classes. Companion pets can be weak and aesthetic pets which follow the player around when summoned. They do not affect combat.

    You can purchase pets from the Blizzard Store in return for real-world cash, by completing quests, farming, or killing creatures until you drop your pet. Or, buy them as loot, or another player, or through the Auction House. A pet can learn up to four abilities.

  • Mounts

    Mounts can be ridden and provide transportation for players. While some can fly while others only can run or swim, they can greatly enhance mobility and transportation. Although they can be obtained in much the same manner as pets, many require daily training. Some mounts require certain levels of riding skills to be used. Some mounts like the Heirloom can only be used by those with no skills. The mounts are only available to characters who have at least level 20. This makes it quite easy. The Hearthsteed is another mount that can be obtained cross-game. It requires players to win 3 HearthStone games. This makes it one of the easiest mounts. The rider’s level of riding ability is the only thing that determines a mount’s speed. Mount vendors and riding instructors can teach riders how to ride. Some mounts can be classified or race-specific.
  • Weapons, armor, items, and customizations

    They can be made, bought from other players, vendors or the Blizzard Shop, or looted and traded. While some are cosmetic in nature, others provide specific buffs. Some are specific to a class.


Dungeons

Clearing dungeons is best done in a group. Clearing a dungeon will require a minimum of five people. The best combination of DPSs, Healer, and Tanks is the ideal. You can either form parties yourself, with your guild friends or by using the Dungeon Finder tool which will help you match up to create parties. Every dungeon has its own boss and is home to a variety of monsters. Sometimes loot can be dropped by bosses or monsters that are defeated. Loot-containing objects and monster corpses will glow until the owner claims it. The chat-box will show all loot and the names of those who claimed it. Each party member can take loot from the boss, however, loot will differ from one player to another.

Dungeons offer the chance for players to complete their own quests. Players should discuss private quests among themselves to find ways to match them. All party members can collect quest items from corpses, and not just the one who finds them. The item collection process is much faster for each player to finish their quest.

Each character has a back-pack that can only hold a certain amount of items. Players should therefore make sure to keep any unneeded items in the bank. It is also recommended to do this if players are tagging their characters for PvP. Their corpses can be lootable.


Quests

There are never any quests that require you to increase your level in the game. A handy Adventure Guide tool will also pop-up when Shift_J is pressed. This shows all the quests, dungeons and zones available for each character. There is so much content, that players may not be able to complete every quest available before leveling up. The gameplay experience could be entirely different if you level up to a new character. These quests can be fun because they are often tied to a storyline that relates to your character. This enhances immersion. NPCs can give many quests. They are usually found in scrolls and noticeboards. You will find them by opening boxes, looting items or by doing chain-quests. These quests generally give characters experience points as well as other rewards.

You can order the latest expansion Battle for Azeroth through Amazon.
