Unstubbifying Edit

This page was tagged with {{Stub/Needed}} but, at least imho, a 2-page piece is not a stub, so I yanked it.   Something as central as this page (at least, central to newcomers) might deserve to look a bit better though and perhaps deserve a {{Cleanup}} tag. Come to think of it, I'll go add that right away. --Mikk 16:04, 7 June 2006 (EDT)

About that cleanup: done. There shouldn't be any real NPoV / coherency issues left; however, the article lacks... content. What I've basically done is removed the Highlights / Lowlights headers and rewrote the content under a Features header while trying to remain objective. Overall, it shrunk the article down a bit, and steered it in the direction of answering What World of Warcraft does rather than What World of Warcraft is. Some sort of history / lore / game detail / critical reception section would be very welcomed.
The article at the moment serves a bit like linkfarm to various more fleshed out areas of WoWWiki. I'm not sure if I like the amount of links inside the text, that might need some tweaking. The "Offsite links" section didn't belong here -- replaced it by adding See Also-style links to the official site, wikipedia and Fansites -- should cover the subject, but save the page from having to list fansites. Still needs work. :/ Starlightblunder 17:11, 12 August 2006 (EDT)

Colored Qualities Edit

I de-colored the qualities because the words themselves aren't items. That and it looked ugly. --Hobinheim (talk · contr) 19:14, 15 January 2007 (EST)

FAQ Edit

Does World of Warcraft have a Castle Siege systems? I mean by Castles that are obtainable by Guilds and wars between Guilds. --Ramu50 (talk) 00:51, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

Nope. Not even sure they plan to do something like this towards the future, but they haven't said anything of wanting to either. Guild housing is still on the to do list though... whenever they decide to get around to it. User:Coobra/Sig4 06:19, 5 June 2009 (UTC)
Weird....than what is the siege weapon for? Just randomly destroing building -.-....

--Ramu50 (talk) 15:36, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

Siege weapons are for pvp between factions in either the Strand of the Ancients (Battleground), Wintergrasp (combat zone), or for some pve quests/instances. User:Coobra/Sig4 20:35, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

Evidence of Citations Edit

Partial Scandinavian Mythology (-based)

Note: Generally speaking, nowadays if a game utilize only utilize Mythical Beasts and very little map, then it isn't considered based on Mythology. Because mythological-based games are considered a design trend / style and a genre itself. Similarity to filmography does create it film genre like Thriller without a clear definition, this is due to the movement of technology modernizations. However, if characters and theme-based (referring to the general geography of the game is similarity e.g. Filled with Old Growth forest, and having a self-continent island that of similar to Greenland), then usually it is considered as Scandinavian.


Unsure detailsEdit

If I remember correctly, Norse Mythology differentiate Drakes, Dragons, Worms, Wyrms in different aspects and WoW does utilize this categorizing system. Also WoW also uses some locations suffix -heim (if I am not wrong, in Norse English it probably means Realm of "") since a lot of setting in the mythology end with -heim. Muspelheim and Niflheim.


Partial Greek

but not based

I think warcraft also differentiate Gryphon and Hippogriff. --Ramu50 (talk) 14:56, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

Fixes for Intro Paragraph Edit

Paragraph references "three" expansions but lists four, including Pandaria. Also, the N is left off of "known" in the sentence concerning Vanilla WoW. Spacklethorn (talk) 21:01, December 24, 2011 (UTC)
