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!

1. A crappy game unofficially sponsored by George Fisher from Cannibal Corpse. Not surprisingly, he is single and overweight

2. Something that will not help you get laid, get a gf, get a job, get friends, or get a life. It's like ecstacy, after you take it, you will become hopelessly addicted, and you will start losing your friends and family, no one will respect you anymore, and your life will become an emotional hellhole
1. World of Warcraft is the reason why so many people HATE death metal, but love hard rock

2. I was in my room and I was just like staring at the computer thinking about WoW, but then again I was thinking about nothing. And then my MoM came in, and I didn't even know she was there. She called my name and I didn't hear her and then she started screaming “Mike, Mike!” And I go “what? Whats the matter?” She goes “whats the matter with you?” I go “theres nothing wrong, mom.” Shes all “don't tell me that! You're on drugs!” I go “no mom I'm not on drugs. I'm ok, I'm just playing WoW, you know? Why don't you get me a Pepsi?” She goes “No! You're on drugs!” I go “mom, I'm ok. I'm just playing WoW.” She goes “No! You're not thinking, you're on drugs! Normal people don't be acting that way!” I go “mom, just get me a Pepsi! Please, all I want is a Pepsi!” And she wouldn't give it to me! All I wanted was a Pepsi, just one Pepsi, and she wouldn't give it to me! Just a Pepsi!

"Sorry honey, not tonight I Got my Epic Pants in World of Warcraft tonight."

Despite common belief, quite a fun little game.

While, sometimes, World of Warcraft - or WoW as it is abbreviated - can get tedious, there's always something to do in other parts of the vast world Azeroth, where the Warcraft storyline was set (except for part of Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne, which was set in an alien dimension known as Draenor from which the Orcs originated. Incidentally, Draenor is going to be released in WoW with the upcoming expansion - the Burning Crusade).

Whether it's questing, grinding (exterminating enemies on a large scale for experience), or brushing up your trade skills - mining, blacksmithing, leatherworking and engineering to name but a few - WoW always has something to do.

And failing that, WoW (at least on my server) is full of friendly, helpful players who love conversation - you see, the chat is one of the major aspects of WoW. With chat channels (general, trade, local defense, looking for group), private messaging (or /whispering), group chat, guild chat, and a multitude of others, WoW is a game as much based on communication as on skill.

WoW is split into two factions - the Alliance and the Horde, which are then made up of four races each. Quite simply, the Alliance can choose to be Humans, Dwarves, Night Elves and Gnomes, and the Horde may pick Orcs, Trolls, Tauren or the undead Forsaken. All of the races have elaborate back-stories, particularly the reason why no Gnomes featured back in Warcraft III. Along with nine classes, each with their own advantages, and millions of appearance combinations, WoW is certainly a many-faceted game.

And, since it is merely a matter of opinion anyway, I'm going to go on and say: I like WoW. WoW doesn't suck.
Terry hit level 56 on World of Warcraft with his Gnome Warlock yesterday.

Jack got an epic mount for his Human Paladin last week.

I have a level 28 Gnome Mage on Nordrassil, called Khemri. /whisper me!

The most addictive thing you will ever encounter. The definitions you read on here are NOT bullshit, within 6 hours of playing you will be addicted. I started playing 3 months ago, forunatly about a month ago i noticed what was happening and now i only play casually (casually is still a lot, 1.5-3 hours a day). PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME UNLESS YOU HAVE TREMENDOUS SELF CONTROL! I am not joking, this is the truth, please take on my advice, dont let it suck you in! Common symptoms for players:

You will lose your girlfriend, You will lose your friends, You will get constant headaches for staring at a PC screen for 18 hours a day, you will get back pain due to that posture how you sit down while playing. You will start failing your exams, you will gain weight, you will have a face full of acne, you will never have sex, you wont be able to concentrate, you will be willing to pay upwards of $3000 for a 9/9 tier 3 armour set, you will make it your lifes ambition to get full tier 3 and rank 14, basically... you have just wasted your life....

Remeber, if you are to start playing, make sure, that under no circumstance, you play more than 3 hours a day!
<WoW player>: ZOMG, i have just got level 70 on my human warrior and a flying netherdrake mount, including highest PvP rank and full teir 4 armour, i am the best player on world of warcraft realms

<normal guy>: Do you even relise that it is all just code and none of it exists in real life? 7 million losers might play WoW, but 7 BILLION people play REAL LIFE!!!

The most addicting game ever created. 9 million active people is Blizzards currently standing achievement. But the side effects include:
1. Loss of fun
2. Loss of "cool"
3. Loss of girlfriend
4. Loss of love
5. Loss of life
The commonly held comversation in a World of Warcraft playing household:

Woman: Come to bed honey, I'm feeling naughty
Man: Babe can you come on the computer, I need a healer for this raid
Woman: Didn't you hear me?
Man: If you heal us good I'll take you back to my custom love zone when were done
Woman: Ooh that sounds kinky
Man: It's inside orgrimmar, I got it near the kodohide leatherworks
Woman: What...?
Man: I'll undress you and plant kisses on your green leathery skin
Woman: Thats going too far..
Man: Then I'll play my flute of sorrows to make you horny
Woman: Were getting a divorce
Man: And finally I'll fuck you with my giant tauren cock until I moo in extasy

1. An online computer game in which you design your character either from the horde or the alliance then play to become level 60 which is the highest level.

2. An escape for most people from the toils of the real world offering them a sense of relaxation.

3. A friendship killer.
1. "Dude...I'm gonna go play some World of Warcraft!"

2. "God I can't wait to get home from my shitty school and play some WoW."

3. "You never talk to me anymore because you are always on WoW."

"I don't give a fuck woman! Now stop bothering me while I am doing an instance!
