World of Warcraft is a popular subscription-based fantasy MMORPG by Blizzard Entertainment. Spawning from the RTS franchise, WoW features multiple factions, races and classes. Embark on an epic journey across many continents in one of the most popular fantasy MMORPGs ever made.World of Warcraft is an online game where players from around the world assume the roles of heroic fantasy characters and explore a virtual world full of mystery, magic, and endless adventure!
Battle For Azeroth is World of Warcraft’s 7th expansion and features: two new faction specific contents and continents, all new dungeons and raids, a level cap of 120, a revamped PvP progression system, a long awaited stat squish, and much more!
World of Warcraft Key Features
Factions – In Warcraft, there are two large, opposing factions. On one side is the noble Alliance, which comprises the valiant humans, the stalwart dwarves, the ingenious gnomes, the spiritual night elves, the mystical draenei, and the bestial worgen; On the other side is the mighty Horde, made up of the battle-hardened orcs, the cunning trolls, the hulking tauren, the cursed Forsaken, the extravagant blood elves, and the devious goblins.The harmonious Pandaren stand between these opposed races — in the name of balance or personal philosophy, they may join either faction. Choose your allegiance carefully.
Always Something To Do – World of Warcraft is a truly massive game. Between the original game, regular patches that add new content, and multiple full-fledged expansions, hundreds of hours of gameplay content await you.
Questing – A large amount of World of Warcraft revolves around questing. These tasks or missions are usually available from non-player characters (NPCs). Quests usually reward the player with experience points and in-game money that the character can then spend on buying new skills and buying new equipment.
Group and Raids – Some of the harder challenges in World of Warcraft require players to group together to defeat them. These usually take place in dungeons or in separate zones, also known as instances.In the Legion expansion new dungeons and raids are added.
Loads Of PvP – There are a lot of different player versus player styles, from arenas to open world roaming. Some expansions brought new pvp mechanics and modes. The Legion expansion even brings a revamped PvP progression system with more emphasis on open world PvP than ever before!
