Additional forms allow them to breathe underwater and swim faster, increase foot traveling speed, and fly without a mount. Bears use Rage, Cats use Energy, and while all druids have a mana pool, only the other two specializations rely on it. Balance druids also use [[StarPower Astral]] Power. Restoration druids are most well known for their healing-over-time spells such as Rejuvenation.

''World of Warcraft'' is based in the world of Azeroth, on four main continents: Kalimdor, the Eastern Kingdoms, Northrend and Pandaria; as well as the former planet of Draenor, now known as Outland, whence the [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Orcs]] originate. There are two factions: the Alliance and the Horde (though neither is automatically good or evil -- and in trope terms, ''both'' are TheAlliance), thirteen races, eleven classes, eleven primary professions, and four secondary professions.

Well-known for its depth of interaction, [=WoW=] has also spawned a collectible card game, a pen-and-paper RPG, comic books, and many other merchandising peripherals. The game was one of the largest MMO in the world by a huge margin, with a peak subscriber base of 11.5 million players and at one point holding nearly 60% of the total market share. [[note]]For reference, the largest US MMORPG before this was ''VideoGame/EverQuest'' at half a million during its height; the largest worldwide was ''VideoGame/Lineage'' at 2-3 million -- although Asian MMORPG numbers such as ''Lineage'' can be considered inflated, as they have a different pricing structure in Asian markets that revolve around cybercafes. Note that ''World of Warcraft'' is played in the same cybercafes on the same terms.[[/note]] A [[Film/WarCraft2016 feature film]] based on the Warcraft franchise has been rescued from DevelopmentHell, and was released in June 2016, directed by a certain Creator/DuncanJones. It is based on the first game in the series, ''Warcraft: Orcs and Humans'', and focuses on Durotan and Anduin Lothar.

* Rogue -- A dual-wield melee DPS class that attacks from [[StealthExpert stealth]] for incredible damage, then vanishes into the shadows when the advantage is lost. Rogues may specialize in the use of [[PoisonedWeapons poisons]], [[MasterSwordsman toe-to]][[KnifeNut -toe combat]], or [[CombatPragmatist trickery and deceit]]. They use Energy, and build a unique resource called Combo Points when using their abilities that they can later spend on various ''finishing moves'', from recuperating after a battle, to eviscerating their prey.

* Demon Hunter (coming in ''Legion'') -- Based on the demon hunters of Warcraft lore, they utilize demonic magics and transform into demon-like forms to fight in melee. They are the second "hero class" after Death Knights. Unlike other classes, they only have two specializations: Vengeance for tanking, and Havoc for damage. For lore reasons, they are the most restricted class in terms of race; they are only available to Night Elves and Blood Elves.
