World of Warcraft Background

World of Warcraft takes place within the Warcraft world of Azeroth, approximately four years after the events at the conclusion of Blizzard’s previous Warcraft release, Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne. Blizzard Entertainment announced World of Warcraft on September 2, 2001.

The game was released on November 23, 2004, on the 10th anniversary of the Warcraft franchise.

World of Warcraft is set in the same fictional universe as Blizzard’s other games such as StarCraft and Diablo. However, it introduces a variety of new elements to the lore while still retaining many familiar elements.

Characters, locations and items from previous games such as Warcraft: Orcs & Humans and Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness are present in World of Warcraft, as are elements from Blizzard’s newer franchises Diablo and StarCraft.

WOW Factions

There are two primary factions in the game: the Alliance and the Horde.

The Alliance is composed of humans, dwarves, night elves, gnomes, and draenei; while the Horde contains orcs, tauren, undead, trolls, and blood elves.

Players can choose to be one of eleven character races within these factions: humans, orcs, dwarves, night elves, tauren, gnomes, trolls (Horde only), blood elves (Horde only), draenei (Alliance only) and the newly introduced worgen (Alliance only) and goblins (Horde only).

Once a player has chosen a race, they must select one of two primary professions: mining or herbalism; blacksmithing or leatherworking; alchemy or jewelcrafting; tailoring or enchanting.

Players are also able to learn up to two “secondary” professions, which include cooking, fishing, first aid, archaeology and many others.

Players are also able to choose from a variety of “specializations” within their class, which further refine and focus their abilities.

FAQS – WOW Names

What are factions in WOW?

Players can choose to join one of two factions: the Alliance or the Horde. The Alliance is composed of humans, dwarves, night elves, gnomes, and draenei; while the Horde contains orcs, tauren, undead, trolls, and blood elves.

Once a player has chosen a faction, they must select one of eleven character races within that faction: humans, orcs, dwarves, night elves, tauren, gnomes, trolls (Horde only), blood elves (Horde only), draenei (Alliance only) and the newly introduced worgen (Alliance only) and goblins (Horde only).

Once a player has chosen their race and faction, they must then select one of two primary professions: mining or herbalism; blacksmithing or leatherworking; alchemy or jewelcrafting; tailoring or enchanting.

Players are also able to learn up to two “secondary” professions, which include cooking, fishing, first aid, archaeology and many others.

What are the common characteristics of WOW names?

There is no one answer to this question as players have a lot of freedom when it comes to naming their characters. However, there are some general trends that can be observed.

For example, many players choose names that reflect the race and class of their character. For instance, a human warrior might be named “Aragorn” after the famous Lord of the Rings character, while an orc shaman might be named “Thrall” after the leader of the Horde in Warcraft III.

In addition, many players also choose names that are based on pop culture references, inside jokes, or just something they find funny. For example, one of the most popular names for gnomes is “Tinyscale” which is a play on the word “tiny”.

Finally, some players just choose names that they think sound cool or look good on their character. This is often the case with blood elf characters, who have a lot of naming options that are based on their unique culture and history.

What are the types of characters in WOW?

There are eleven character races in World of Warcraft: humans, orcs, dwarves, night elves, tauren, gnomes, trolls (Horde only), blood elves (Horde only), draenei (Alliance only) and the worgen (Alliance only) and goblins (Horde only).

Each race has its own unique history, culture and set of abilities. For example, orcs are a fierce and warlike race that have traditionally been at odds with the Alliance. In contrast, gnomes are a small and clever race that are known for their engineering prowess.

Players can choose to be any one of these races when they create their character. Once a player has chosen their race, they cannot change it. However, they can choose to change their character’s appearance through the use of different hairstyles, skin colors and tattoos.

When choosing a race, players should consider which one will best fit their desired class and playstyle. For example, night elves are a stealthy and agile race that work well for classes that require these qualities such as rogues and druids. Tauren, on the other hand, are a large and strong race that excel in melee combat, making them ideal for classes such as warriors and paladins.

Ultimately, the choice of which race to play is up to the player and there is no wrong answer. All of the races in World of Warcraft are interesting and have their own unique stories to tell.

Conclusion – WOW Names

In conclusion, there is no one right way to choose a name for your World of Warcraft character. However, there are some general trends that can be observed.

Many players choose names that reflect the race and class of their character, that are based on pop culture references, or that they simply think sound cool or look good on their character.

As the player, you have a lot of freedom when it comes to naming your character. So take your time, consider all of your options, and choose a name that you will be happy with for a long time to come.
