World of Warcraft is a MMORPG based in the Warcraft universe. Choose from 8 races and 9 classes and head off into the World of Warcraft!
Most races start in their own part of the world... a world that could compete with Morrowind for size. As the races move out from their starting locations, they can meet the other races if they choose to move out through the world. Both races and classes have unique abilities, skills, and spells to help them survive in the world.
The game offers professions for players to learn, if they want. You have the choice of 2 major professions, such as Alchemy, Herbalism, Skinning, and Tailoring, as well as the ability to have unlimited minor professions, such as Fishing and Cooking. Progressing in these skills allows you to make more things or have better results from the skills.
The gameplay is similar to most other MMORPG games, where you must go out into the world, complete quests, kill monsters, and level up your character. And, as often is the case, you also will want to find, make, or buy better equipment as you go along. There are multiple levels of equipment from normal to artifact based on rarity.
You also can move quickly between areas by learning to ride an animal (race specific) when your level is high enough, or taking another form of transport that you can't control movement for, such as train, griffon, and more.
Join parties and guilds, fight everything from rabbits to dragons, climb mountains and swim out into the sea... the world is yours.
