"The current World of Warcraft virtual world is built around two main continents: The Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor. The new World Tree of Teldrassil is off the northwestern coast of Kalimdor. While not all of the history between the end of The Frozen Throne and the four years between the start of World of Warcraft has been revealed, it is assumed that the conflict between the Horde's forces and the marines of the Theramore Isles at the end of the Orc mini-campaign were at least the kindling for the blaze of the current conflict. Some of the notable landmarks and locations in World of Warcraft that were featured in previous Warcraft games, namely Warcraft III, are: The Undercity, which resides under the Ruins of Lordaeron, is the main city of the Undead, ruled by Sylvanas Windrunner and Varimathras. Here they are engineering a new plague to wipe out the Scourge and all other life forms in Azeroth; The Eastern and Western Plaguelands, including places such as Andorhal, the place of origin of the Scourge and the Plague of Undeath, and Stratholme, the site of Arthas' initial fall into insanity; The Blasted Lands, home of the original Dark Portal out of which the Orcs first came into Azeroth; and Kalimdor, home to the Tauren, Orcs, Trolls, and Night Elves. Areas to the north include Ashenvale Forest, Felwood, Winterspring, Azshara and the Moonglade. wow honor leveling These regions surround Mt. Hyjal, where the final battle against Archimonde was held and the fall of the Burning Legion's Second Invasion took place. As of mid-2005 a number of areas in World of Warcraft's virtual world have yet to be implemented. Some examples of this are: In Kalimdor: Mount Hyjal (south-east of Winterspring), Ahn'qiraj (south of the Scarab Wall in Silithus), and the Caverns of Time and Uldum (both in Tanaris). In Lordaeron: Gilneas (south of the Greymane Wall), Quel'Thalas (north-east of Stratholme), and Zul'Aman (east of Quel'Thalas). In Khaz Modan: Grim Batol (in the far east of the Wetlands). In Azeroth (confusingly both the name of the southern continent and the name of the world): Medivh's Tower (in Deadwind Pass). It is possible to enter these World of Warcraft zones, either accidentally or intentionally.

" " As of August 2005, World of Warcraft has more than 4,000,000 players worldwide, making it the most popular MMORPG in the world. Over 1 million of these players live in the US. 1.5 million of these are from the World of Warcraft Chinese launch on July 7, 2005. wow lvl service These numbers exclude all players under free promotional subscriptions, expired or canceled subscriptions, and expired pre-paid cards. Blizzard also stated that at any given time at least 500,000 World of Warcraft subscribers are online. Due to World of Warcraft's high sales it has been described as a ""runaway success"" with ""overwhelming popularity"", which other games, like The Matrix Online, blame for their lackluster sales. On August 3, 2005, China implemented legislation which forbids minors from playing games in which players kill each other. wow gold The impact of this on World of Warcraft's revenue is still to be determined. World of Warcraft Characters Because World of Warcraft is a role-playing game, players create characters which serve as their avatar in the online world. When creating a character in World of Warcraft, the player can choose from eight different races and nine different character classes. The races are split into two equally sized factions, the Alliance and the Horde: *The Alliance consists of Humans, Night Elves, Dwarves, and Gnomes. *The Horde consists of Orcs, Tauren, Undead (a.k.a. Forsaken) and Trolls. *Additionally, there are many NPC races such as Goblins, Ogres, High Elves and Murlocs. The nine available classes are Druid, Hunter, Mage, Paladin, Priest, Rogue, Shaman, Warlock and Warrior. wow power leveling Two of the classes are faction-specific: Paladins for the Alliance and Shamans for the Horde.
