- World of Warcraft players have unique ways of interacting with each other.
- A funny video shared by World of Warcraft showcases different types of players’ walking styles, including side-steppers, bulldozers, jumpers, buffers, and duelers.
- In World of Warcraft Classic Season of Discovery, most players tend to be buffers, generously sharing buffs with others for a combat boost, regardless of their walking style.
World of Warcraft just shared a hilarious video that points out the different ways players pass by other characters in the game. Be it by jumping over others or challenging them to a duel, this video has players examine how they move about World of Warcraft.
As an MMORPG, World of Warcraft has several unspoken rules about how players communicate with one another. From jumping up and down in place to greet or guide players to communicating with members of the opposite faction via emotes, fans have created unique ways of interacting with others in the game world.
World of Warcraft Players Can Get a Free Toy for Winter Veil Right Now
World of Warcraft players can get a new toy for free as a special Winter Veil gift, but only if they log in to collect it before the event is over.
Recently, World of Warcraft shared a funny video pointing out some of the most common ways players walk around in the game. As players walk past other characters, some are prone to moving around their fellow gamers, while others run straight through them or hop over their heads. While it is not always a conscious choice as to what kind of “WoW Walker” one is, this video asks players to take a step back and look at how they travel across World of Warcraft in a comically poignant way.
The Different Types of ‘WoW Walkers’
- The Side-stepper: walks around other players.
- The Bulldozer: goes straight through other characters.
- The Jumper: leaps over the heads of those they come across.
- The Buffer: throws out buffs to others as they pass by.
- The Dueler: challenges any World of Warcraft players who cross their path to a battle.
With nearly over 1,500 reposts on Twitter within a few hours of the original post, it is clear World of Warcraft fans got a kick out of the video. Players shared their own tendencies for how they interact with others in the near-300 comments the post received, and how their tendencies have changed over the years. Others pointed out World of Warcraft races with special jump animations like Night Elves and Blood Elves, or classes that can glide like Demon Hunters and Evokers, have even more reason to be Jumpers than most, while those who play on RP servers tend to be Side-steppers to maintain realism.
In World of Warcraft Classic Season of Discovery, however, almost everyone tends to be a Buffer. On the retro servers, many buffs scale with the level of the caster, allowing high-level characters to give a massive boost to the combat abilities of their lower-level counterparts. It is courteous to share any buffs they might have, so if players jump into Classic WoW, they should consider tossing some out to any they pass by, regardless of how they move around them.
