What World of Warcraft Characters are There for You?

By: Amelie Mag

World of Warcraft characters live in a world filled with imagination. In the game World of Warcraft, created by Blizzard, players have the option to be a wide combination of different races and classes, offering near endless possibilities. One of the characters you could have in a World of Warcraft account is an undead rogue. The undead, strange creatures and corpses brought back to life by magical means, are one the races on the side of the Horde, one of the two great teams battling for the control of the WoW universe. The rogue, for its part, is a class that focuses on dealing large amounts of damage, sneaking into areas where it shouldn't be, and immobilizing opponents, among other things.

Naturally, there are down sides to those World of Warcraft characters who want to play and undead rogue. For one, you're choosing to have a rather creepy character on your World of Warcraft account, and magically sustained body that only moves because of some twisted magic. But, if that's what you're into, who's going to object, especially if you stab them fast enough. More seriously, the undead rogue World of Warcraft characters do have some downsides, and being able to deal tremendous amounts of damage does come with some limitations.

For one, rogues are limited in the types of armor and weapons they can use. A major downside for anyone who wants to put a rogue on their World of Warcraft account is the fact that rogues cannot use most armor. For the most part, they're limited to cloth and leather pieces, something that severely limits their protection in relation to other, more martial classes. That's not all, though. Rogue World of Warcraft characters can really only use knives, not the swords, axes, maces, and other weapons some other classes have access to. It is possible, true, that with training that can change. However, at the beginning, many of the best weapons you find won't be usable.

Of course, there are benefits to playing undead rogue World of Warcraft characters. The rogue class as a whole can do magnificent combo attacks, which are a series of attacks that can build to greater and greater damage. Essentially, the rogue does damage by hitting often, and in the right place, as opposed to the fighter class some players prefer to have on their World of Warcraft account, which hurts enemies by simply hitting really, really hard. It's a different style of play, but one that can be very rewarding.

The undead rogue combination does seem to be rather popular, with a lot of people looking for a World of Warcraft account that has one. I have to admit, it does look rather cool. The undead rogue, dressed up with a high level armor set looks just like a rogue should. It's no wonder if, with all the players who want to create characters that they're proud of, the undead rogue is being chosen at least partly because it looks the part of the sneaky assassin.
