Did you know that World of Warcraft is the most popular MMORPG of our time? If you're even somewhat familiar with the gaming scene, you've probably heard of WoW. This pay to play massively multiplayer role playing game has millions of subscribers from all over the world.
You start WoW most like any other MMORPG, with creating account. Once you do, you will pick a server and then create a character. Your character is your own avatar that will represent you in the game. You can choose from one of the two factions- Horde or Alliance. Once you've picked your side, you can also choose between male and female and then you will pick your class.
After choosing your class in WoW, there are some varied customization options and then you will choose your name and create your character. You start off as a level one and begin questing and killing to level up. Each level you will obtain new skills and abilities to help your character advance in the game.
The original version of WoW allows a max level cap of 60. If you purchased all the expansions to date, this cap is upped to 80. The new expansion in the works is rumored to up this level cap to 85. World of Warcraft has everything an MMORPG fan could want. There's PvP, guilding, end-game action with raids of varying difficulties and an endless quest for better epics!
One of the main features that has made World of Warcraft such a popular MMORPG is the ease at which you can play and learn to play. Even someone who has never played a PC game or MMORPG before can learn how to play WoW. The cartoony graphics add to the appeal and it's playable on lower-grade systems so you don’t need the newest machine to enjoy it. All of these features combined make for a pretty decent game.
When you add to the fact that it's from the very popular Blizzard, that so many people are playing it and that it's just downright fun and addicting, it's easy to see why so many people are getting into the MMORPG World of Warcraft.
