This article or section contains lore taken from the Warcraft RPG books, and thus is not necessarily canon.


While mages, paladins, rogues, and warriors attract much of the spotlight on Azeroth, many heroes choose to follow more dedicated, specific paths to power and renown (or infamy, as the case may be). Through organizations, old traditions and esoteric ways, PCs can discover and gain levels in prestige classes, which specialize in particular abilities, skills, and areas of expertise.

Note: The concept of prestige class is more of a game mechanic than having anything to do with lore. Due to changes in gameplay between the Warcraft RPG, and World of Warcraft RPG some prestige classes have been altered, updated, replaced, sometimes eliminated in the new series in order to make the game playable with the newest rules.

Prestige classes are RPG Classes.
