If you haven’t heard of the World of Warcraft game, you or your children will.
I evaluated this game and decided I don’t want my children (boys under 14) playing it. This is the decision I have made for my family for the reasons below: Evil Character and Quests You begin the game by creating a character choosing from ten races and nine classes.
The classes in World of Warcraft are Warriors, Mages, Druids, Hunters, Warlocks, Priests, Paladins, Rogues, and Shaman. The Alliance includes Humans, Night Elves, Dwarfs, Gnomes and Draenei. Characters take on “quests” or assignments that include traveling through terrains and fighting different kinds of monsters.
The Horde includes Orcs, Tauren, Undead, Trolls and Blood Elves. View this video from the creator to get an idea of the of the characters game. Players climb and improve skill as they perform the quests.
At times a player may need the help of other players.
These are called dungeons which can be two to five players or groups of 30 to 40.
It can take several weeks or months in order to pass the dungeon depending on the skill and the playing style of the player. Much of the game is spent fighting a diverse and sometimes frightening assortment of computer-controlled creatures gone bad-wild boars, wolves, rogues, undead creatures, dragons, thieves, etc.
that include graphic depictions of blood during combat with appropriate sound effects. Players control an avatar (character) in the world inside the game. It’s a bit complicated to explain but once a player makes it to level 80 for most this is the real start of the game. Casting Spells, Witchcraft, Ghosts, Violence Players fight by casting spells. Different spells have different effects on other players or monsters.
They explore the landscape, perform all activities and perfect skills while winning items. These items, along with different weapons and armor, are a focus of the game as they improve various attack or defense skills. Players earn the ability to cast spells by visiting trainers and by receiving items dropped by monsters, found through quests, or sold by other players.
The strength of the spells depends on the players’ level and earned items.
Spells can improve or weaken friends and enemy troops.
Other spells do direct damage to enemies or heal allies.
