10 Best Online RPG Games in 2015

3. World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor  

Just when you thought you were getting your life together, Blizzard shoves you back into the buffet line and drops another piece of fried chicken onto your plate. Cancel your gym membership boys, there’s a new expansion in town and there’s no time to waste. 

It’s hard to believe WoW has been around for eleven years, but it has, and for good reason. Millions of people still play, and Warlords of Draenor looks to solidify WoW’s grasp on the MMORPG community. 

Warlords of Draenor allows us to see Draenor before its destruction. You see,  
Garrosh escapes from prison before being punished for his crimes in the previous expansion, Mists of Pandaria, and with the help of Kairoz, he manages to travel back in time. By traveling back in time, he is able to prevent the corruption of Draenor caused by Mannoroth’s blood while also bringing new technology to the tribes, uniting them into a single force. The goal? Garrosh creates a new dark portal with only one purpose in mind: Destroy present Day Azeroth!  

One of the newest additions to WoW is something called Garrisons, which is a permanent home base that can be outfitted with all sorts of goodies. Garrisons allow you to construct buildings to handle certain activities such as gearing, crafting, raiding, and so on and so forth. Garrisons also allow for some single player alone time as you manage your structures so that you may become more self-reliant instead of having to travel to nearby towns to conduct your business. These Garrisons are also used to train NPCs who can then go out and acquire items for both themselves and for you.  

Blizzard has a lot of time to flesh out the production value of WoW, and this is exemplified in the new zone of Draenor. The level of artistry from multiple disciplines is on full display here and it's really quite spectacular. Draenor is easily the most diverse zone in all of WoW, with its beautiful foliage, snow covered peaks, winding canyons, and haunting forests--all for the player to explore. These areas are also accompanied by a soundtrack that is one of the best to come out of Blizzard in recent memory and really adds to the overall aesthetic feel of Draenor, making exploration a palpable experience. 

Truth be told, there’s a lot new in Warlords of Draenor, from the level cap being increased to 100, to being able to pay for your subscription with in game gold, Warlords of Draenor is easily the best expansion in the entire series. New gear, new quests, and some of the best storytelling Blizzard has ever done makes Warlords of Draenor a must play game for any MMORPG player.
