Not only a game, World of Warcraft has become a huge MMORPG with millions of players on a worldwide level. Its story first started in 1994 when developers launched Warcraft: Orcs & Humans, the first of the franchise. After several games, the series turned into an online experience called World of Warcraft, and the game became a top-played MMORPG. Based on monthly subscriptions, you will have to activate the game via a Battle.net account.

In World of Warcraft, you can play as 12 classes that include: warrior, mage, death knight, monk, demon hunter, druid, warlock, shaman, priest, paladin, rogue, and hunter. You should choose based on your play style and what you find the most interesting. Rogues are great choices for those who want a character that will go stealth. You will also have to choose the side you want to be on: Horde or Alliance. These opposing factions each have unique characteristics from each race, and you have a lot of freedom to explore the gigantic world in the game. The estimates put this gaming world at 61 square miles. That's a pretty big world, considering Manhattan is just 20 miles squared.

World of Warcraft has two main types of servers: PvP and PvE. In a PvP world, you can do combat with enemy factions in the contested areas. That can be a lot more fun than you think, but not if the player is 20 or 30 levels higher than you. In those cases, they dominate you with a couple hits, which can be frustrating when you just want to quest. On PvE servers, you do not have to worry as much about being attacked. The focus on PvE envelops more around the actual gameplay and questing.

You have endless opportunities for experiences in the World of Warcraft. While most players seek to cap their level at 90. When Blizzard developers first released the game, the level cap started at 60, but it has continued to go up ever since. Some people play World of Warcraft for the end-level raids with over 40 people. Fight a bloody war on the battlegrounds between the Horde and Alliance. In doing this, you earn points that you can later spend on battleground gear.

When it comes to the graphics of the game, it displays a diverse and interesting range of landscapes that never get boring. Explore the jungles, fog-ridden forests, and the desert plains. The developers brought the atmosphere to life through masterful background music and natural sounds. Play as 13 different races that include Humans, Night Elves, Draenei, Dwarf, Gnome, Worgen, Pandaren, Orc, Blood Elf, Undead, Tauren, Troll, and Goblin. Each beginner ground has unique characteristics, and you have different rich cultures built into the world, which is pretty hard to pull off.
