World of Warcraft has always been the undisputed master of other MMOs only in terms of active population. This does not include the monthly paid subscription to Blizzard, a luxury that many F2P gamers would like to be able to afford. This is why for more than 10 years that WoW exists, dozens of competitors were born and tried their luck against the mastodon but WoW still keeps its millions of subscribers.
Legion was able to silence the critics who think that the game is at the end of its career. But with more than 10 years to its credit, WoW can still wear off, especially at the end of an extpansion, waiting for the next, which is why we propose here viable alternatives to World Warcraft Legion.
If what interests you in WoW is more on its role-playing aspect, you should rather look at games with a solo campaign and a more developed plot like Divinity Original Sin or Pillars of Eternity that are also derived from the legacy of Baldur’s Gate and other classic RPGs. These are mainly games played offline.
On the contrary if it is more the MMO side that interests you, Guild Wars 2 is perfect for its massive PvP (World against World) but also PvP Organized Battles. This game’s PvE is also not bad with many raids and dungeons.
Finally if you are looking for a similar game to World Of Warcraft I suggest you play Wildstar if you are looking for very similar mechanics to World of Warcraft but in a much more fun and entertaining universe, with a graphic style as zany and more cartoon-ish. If you prefer a more refined and futuristic, more Japanese artistic side, you can also find the excellent MMORPG, more based on PvE aspect, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn.
