World of Warcraft

World of Warcraft

The game that set the standard for modern role playing games on the internet now lets you play for free until your character reaches level twenty. World of Warcraft is famous for its party instances and seamless landscapes, providing one of the richest player experiences that RPG games have to offer.

Earlier levels require the same repetitive actions (grinding) as other RPGs to help level up your character to get to the real fun of WOW -- entering dungeons and raids across the world of Azeroth in cooperation with fellow players.

Winged mounts are available to ferry you for a small fee, but you have to travel to those destinations first by foot before you can get there via the skies.

Select from fifteen different professions. Whatever profession you choose, your goods will pay off quickly in useful items or currency from online auctions.

You have ten classes to choose from when creating a character (including the newly created Death Knight available after the release of the Cataclysm expansion). Classes have different roles in the game world of Azeroth, and if you’ve never played a massively multiplayer rpg before, you will quickly learn about the strengths of combining these roles for battling in groups. Tanks take the brunt of the damage from enemy attack, while damage dealers (both melee and from a distance) deliver their payloads. During the battle, healers make sure that comrades keep their health. More than half of the classes allow you to play multiple roles in party battle. Be sure to check out the class guide before hopping in so you get the kind of battle experience you are looking for.

Free, with option to pay for additional features.
