World of Warcraft is the latest fantasy Warcraft universe game. The actions take place within Azeroth, the Warcraft world. The game is released by Blizzard Entertainment and is the fourth Warcraft universe game, the first being Warcraft: Orcs and Humans, released way back in 1994.
World of Warcraft actions, however, happened some four years after the events wrapped up in the third game Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne. This multiplayer online game where the players can role-play, stepping into the shoes of the various Warcraft universe characters, has proved vastly popular among online gamers. The World of Warcraft characters have similarly caught the fancy of the gamers in a short time.
At World of Warcraft, you can choose what kind of hero you would like to impersonate. The first thing to do, however, is to select what race to play. Each race has its own set of characters. You can choose to be one amongst them according to your taste. The characters go through various classes and as you overcome challenges, your character gets to master more spells and skills. The number of skills your World of Warcraft character will master depends on the class he is in.
The most favorite World of Warcraft characters include warriors, warlocks, druids, shamans, rogues, victors, paladins, mages, hunters and deathknights. Deathknights are from the first hero class in World of Warcraft. They are heavily armed and know the mostly deadly and lethal magic. They are no longer servants of Lich King either.
Then there are warriors who are the most fearsome in battlefields. With a single blow, they can wreak havoc on their enemies and with their battle shouts can easily bring out the best abilities from their allies.
Rogues are useful for stealth and their ability to open hidden chests and locked doors. They are the most deadly assassins and can strike their enemies from where they are most unprepared. Warlocks can master the powers of flame and shadow and can summon demons to help themselves and their allies and to damage and cripple their enemies. They can also plague their adversaries with curses or diseases.
Then there are druids, hunters and mages, all of what are powerful World of Warcraft characters, too. Druids can master nature and can come up with the most unusual concoctions which can perform an array of miracles, including bringing the dead back from the underworld and restoring them to life. They can also shapeshift into cats, sea lions or great bears.
Hunters have deadly skills and precision with their rifles and bows. In addition, they can tame the wild beasts at will and then employ their power to assist their allies in battle. Mages, paladins and practices are also capable of many unique powers.
You can choose any of these characters to represent yourself and get immersed in the mythical universe of World of Warcraft.
