Possibly one of the greatest MMORPG's to be released. Very casual-gamer friendly, and a great community. Each class has different attirbutes:

-Rogues may stealth and deal massive damage from close range. Cloth/Leather-wearer

-Mages are a high burst-damage dealer from far away with good crowd control abilities. Cloth wearer

-Warriors are a staple class available to any and all races. Able to take massive damage and draw enemy aggro to them. All types of armour and all weapons can be used by the Warrior.

-Priests are primary healers and can ALWAYS get a group. By specing in the Shadow talent tree they become excellent damage dealers but are very fragile. Cloth-wearer

-Paladins area hybrid Alliance-only class combining elements of the Warrior and a weak Priest. They are popularly supposed to have 3 lives due to their many Shield spells. They get a free mount but have higher training costs than other classes. Can wear all types of armour.

-Shamen are the Horde's hybrid class with more of a focus on spell-casting than melee damage. Many see them as overpowered, as they can melee and cast well, as well as heal. Uses totems to boost their power and support groups. Cloth/Leather/Mail-wearer.

-Hunters are the only class with an auto-shoot feature, relying on their special abilities, utilised through their ranged weapons, to win the fight. They also get pets (a tamed Beast-class mob) and traps (Freezing, Immolation and Explosion). They are able to kite the enemy very effectively. Cloth/Leather/Mail wearers.

-Warlocks are the 'evil' spell-casters of the Warcraft world, able to summon demons to help them in combat - a good thing as they are very fragile. Unlike the Mage, 'Locks rely on damage over time spells (DoTs) to help them win fights, and thanks to talents very rarely run out of mana. Their pets range from the Imp (a glass cannon), to the Voidwalker (able to take and maintain aggro) to the Infernal (of WCIII fame). They get a free mount but training costs are higher. Cloth wearers.

-Druids are only available to 2 races; Tauren and Night Elves. Communing with nature, the Druids are able to change their shape to suit their situation. They gain a Bear form (later Dire Bear) to tank in, a Cat form to deal damage and stealth, an Aquatic form to breathe underwater and move faster, and a Travel Form allowing a 40% speed increase. Cloth/Leather wearers.
Rogues are master gankers! Half the player base has at least 1 Rogue character!

An insanely popular Massive-Multiplayer Online RPG. Populated by over 7 million people, it has been dubbed a game that sucks away your soul because out of those 7 million, about 1000 of them are trolls on all freaking day without sleep or sustinence of any kind. While most complete idiots claim it causes weight gain, acne, and no social life, this isn't nessecarily true because

1. Many people are fat, and it's not because they play WoW. It's because they eat alot. Only complete renobs claim that WoW all day causes severe weight gain, because even when you do absolutely nothing, you burn calories by living and breathing. WoW only makes you fat if you constantly keep a bag of doritos by your desk and stuff your craw. Like a retard.

2.Acne is caused by adolescence and bad cleanliness. WoW has nothing to do with hormonal imbalances and not taking a shower.

3. WoW only takes away your social skills if you have the willpower of a particularly stupid puppy. If you play WoW and have no social skills, it's not because Warcraft is at fault. You might simply be a nerd, you might be shy, you might prefer to think before you speak unlike the rest of the earths population, or you might be an arse.
averageposteronthissite: omg!!!111! world of warcraft destroyed my life! i lost my girlfriend all my friends and my family thinks im a loser all cuz of wow!

me: No, you lost everything because you're a freaking loser. Blaming everything on a computer game is just a stupid excuse.

That which will prevent you from ever having to bother having sex with a fellow human being ever again.
"Honey? When are you going to be done playing World of Warcraft?"

"I'll be off in a second, babe."

*Several hours pass*


"I'll just play for another hour, sweetie."

*Several days pass*

"Um, Alex?"

"I'm getting right off, I swear."

*Several months pass. Guy finally gets off computer.*

"Okay, baby, what was it?"

*Girl's stuff is all gone. Crickets chirp in the distance.*

An MMORPG developed by Blizzard Entertainment. The video game equivalent to heroine. Commonly abbrieviated WoW.
If I had wireless internet and a laptop, I'd pay World of Warcraft even while taking a dump.

1. A modern day rite of passage where boys become men. World of Warcraft is a game for over-achievers who find life too easy and need more of challenge than what their daily routine provides. 2. A dosage of reality for certain relationships. A way for girlfriends to discover their true worth. These unfortunate ones must remember that anger and lashing out is the first step to recovery.
Learn to dance like a female Nightelf from World of Warcraft, THEN we'll talk. Till then don't come out of the kitchen.

A ridiculous place where nerds of all shapes and sizes come together and drain their lives about 8 hours a day. And about $16.15 a month. It kicks ass.
A_Girl_That_Plays_WoW: My lvl 60 Hunter, Onyxia keyed, MC equipped troll kicks your pussy Alliance ass.

A mmorpg that seems to be attracting alot of controversy these days. Apparently addictive, but only if you have the will-power of a pet rock. Has a 15 dollar monthly fee, which is chump change if you're actually out of grade school and have a job. Even a minimum wage one will do. Contrary to popular beliefs, it is possible to carry on a normal life while actively playing this game. You can even reach the maximum level, because the game is so fast paced. Truly one of the best games ever if you are into online gaming and role playing strategy games.
"Hey man, you wanna play WoW for a while? I got some time to kill."

"Nah, I can't right now, I'm going to the gym with Jen in a few minutes. Have fun though"
