The seventh expansion, ''Battle for Azeroth'', scheduled for 2018, centers on a full-blown Alliance/Horde conflict, with both factions taking full control of the Eastern kingdoms and Kalimdor respectively (most notably, the Alliance aims at retaking the kingdom of Lordaeron, which was destroyed in ''Warcraft III'' and inhabited by the Forsaken since). It raises the level cap to 120, introduces the islands of Kul Tiras and Zandalar, and adds new race alternatives for each faction, which can only be unlocked through quests.

* Warlock -- A ranged DPS class that employs [[OurDemonsAreDifferent demons]] and attacks with [[CastingAShadow shadow]] and [[PlayingWithFire fire]] magic. Warlocks may specialize in summoning demonic minions to cause damage and bolster their party, withering their targets with [[{{Curse}} curses]] and periodic damage effects, or battering them with direct power. Warlocks have varying resources depending on their specialization, from [[OneWingedAngel turning into a demon]] with new spells, empowering your current ones with [[SoulJar soul shards]], or using [[IncendiaryExponent burning embers]] to hit the enemies with massive force. All three also use Mana[[note]]Destruction's behaves more like energy[[/note]], while their demons use Fel Energy. Regardless of specialisation, they can opt to sacrifice their demon for a damage boost. They provide a surprising number of helpful spells to their allies, such as a summoning portal to summon players from afar, Healthstones that act as healing potions, and [[SoulJar Soulstones]] which can bring an ally back from the dead in the middle of a fight.

''World of Warcraft'' is based in the world of Azeroth, on four main continents: Kalimdor, the Eastern Kingdoms, Northrend, and Pandaria; a group of islands known as The Broken Isles; as well as the former planet of Draenor, now known as Outland, whence the [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Orcs]] originate, [[TimeyWimeyBall the past of an alternate timeline version of Draenor proper]], and several pocket dimensions somehow connected to Azeroth. 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.

* Druid -- [[NatureHero Servants of nature]], Druids are the most versatile class, relying on talents and [[VoluntaryShapeshifting shapeshifting]] to specialize in [[PantheraAwesome melee DPS (cat)]], [[MixAndMatchCritter ranged DPS (Moonkin)]], [[BearsAreBadNews tank (bear)]], or [[PlantPerson healer (tree)]]. 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.

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.
