    Was Doraleous and Associates based of WoW?

    For those of you who have seen it, do you think there are any similarities between Doraleous and Associates and WoW?

    For those of you who havent: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qk1B8DiIJI8

    Basically its a few classes that team up and go fight evil out in the world. There are a lot of references that are made that WoW makes as well while questing. Thoughts?

    Yes, WoW created every fantasy trope there is. Before it there was nothing.

    Xeraxis, why do you always post negative / sarcastic things in any thread I am a part of?

    Including D&D, back in the 70s.

    I'd say it's more of a DnD homage than WoW
    If there's one thing World of Warcraft players hate more than people who don't play, it's people that do play but not as much as them.

    Don't forget about those medieval guys and gals from way back... whenever that was. King Arthur was him name, I think. Wait, what? Anyway, I believe so, Mr. Jay Lock.

    This is why we need a MOTU MMO! As far as fantasy universes go, its universe is actually pretty deep and imaginative and has a lot that's unique to the genre.

    Don't forget real life. Water and fire was invented in WoW and real life copied it.

    And even further back when language was just starting to become all the rage some 200,000-2,000,000 years ago.
    Enjoyed Draenor questing. If you ignore the end of Nagrand, it's almost as good as 5.0.
