World of Lordcraft (Age of Warcraft) is a Chinese browser game inspired by World of Warcraft, while the game is a strategy online game like War of Legends, Lords Online and more.  The game was released in China in 2009, shortly, it scored a big success despite the stereotyped strategy system.

The world is consisted of 11 areas. You can choose 1 of 10 areas to start(Blasted Lands can not be selected).

Twilight Forest
Twilight Forest is an extremely fertile land with vast green woods and limpid blue lakes. Human migrated here so as to survive a great plague. They started to build magnificent castles on new homeland while confronted with other inimical races. These castles work as strong fortresses overseeing vicious enemies so the sheltered can temporarily lead a peaceful life. But demons had extended their tentacles to disturb this land and peaceful life is only history now.

Moonglade seems to be covered by translucent violet drapes whenever the moon shines upon it. Moonlight penetrates through the gaps of flourishing leaves as the breeze blows through the grove. Shadows of the trees swing gently with the purple moonlight. Moonglade is the home of noble elves. Having been lived here for thousands of years, the elves couldn’t carry on a quiet life ever after demons’ assault. They swore to protect every feet of their holy land.

Coldridge Mountains
Coldridge Mountains are tightly wrapped with silvery thick snow. Due to innumerable years of freezing weather, travelers and adventurers are stopped by the chilling wind and slippery cliffs. Until one day, a group of dwarves reached here. Their endurance against bitter coldness makes it sweet home. And after that they’d built numerous tunnels and strongholds. Howling winds and thick snow became the natural barricade to defend the invasion of demons.

The Barrens
The Barrens for once was a dense forest with the diversity of plant and animal life. But orcs intemperately cut trees down, and the result turned out that the environment of the grove was changed tremendously. This place is no longer flourishing as plants withered, animals died. Due to a long-term shortage of water, the land surface is wrinkled. As time goes by, this place has nothing left but few tiny oases. It’s so hard to imagine what it looked like before.

Stranglethorn Vale
Dangers lurk in Stranglethorn Vale all along. Weirdly-shaped tropical plants and furious beasts make the jungle filled with crises. Travelers may easily lose their way here. What’s worse, the lost ones may never get out of this green maze. It is unbearable for human to stay in such a muggy place while the trolls regard it as their paradise. They often hide still in the jungle, peering at every prey quietly and bring them a death blow when they are helpless.

Boundless Prairie
It’s not easy to tread through the Boundless Prairie with your own feet. It seems that the vast grassland reaches to the edge of the sky in all direction. Countless azure lakes are scattered over this beautiful grassland. Totems are planted everywhere by taurens, who have been living here from age to age. They worship and respect the nature. However, when this land is faced with evil and danger, they can also be irreplaceable fearless warriors.

Swamp of Sorrows
This uncivilized swamp is pervaded with thick fog and misty haze through the year. Grown for thousands of years, overflowing trees and bushes deprive it of light. The dark and damp marsh is full of lethal menace. Local creatures of the swamp can be the most horrible nightmare for any adventurer. Countless skeletons and bones are buried beneath dense bushes. And those restless sighing spirits keep wandering within the Swamp of Sorrows.

Forsaken Lands
The Forsaken Lands once belonged to the territory of human. Somehow, it had been ravaged by an outrageous plague. Those who survived migrated to Twilight Forest one after another. And now this place is full of leveled houses and the remains of animals. Only ruins and broken tombstones can tell that human lived here before. Demons has awakened buried corpses and turned them into the undead. Now Forsaken Lands are completely ruled by the Demon Legion.

Blasted Lands
The Blasted Lands once was the center of the whole continent where the war between the Alliance and the Horde exactly occurred. And demons from another world also commenced their invasion from here. Now, the Blasted Lands are totally under the control of demons. Wild flames gush from the cracks and strong stinky smoke pervades the air. Anyone might get killed if he or she dare step onto these cursed lands.

This enormous moorland, dotted by giant shinning dragon bones, lies in the arms of magnificent mountains. Majestic but lonely ruins were buried under mountains of varied shapes. It is said that here was the home of the guardians: dragons. However, When the Demon Legion descended, dragons had not shown themselves to protect other creatures. People begin to doubt guardians’ existence. Only those giant bones can silently uphold the legend.

Searing Desert
The Searing Desert is grilled by blistering sunlight and overridden by ruthless sandstorms through the year. Scalding sunbeams cut the desert like razors. Those infrequent plants and lakes live like a candle in the wind. Day by day sandstorms build firm dunes of different sizes in the desert. Some even look like cloud-kissing towers. Ruins can be indistinctly seen from certain dunes. It tells there used to be civilization here.


Legend has it that long time ago Titans once came to this uncivilized continent. They use infinite power to bring this land order and life. One day after another, they created towering mountains, deep oceans, then the boundless skies. They tried to teach those primitive races all kinds of crafts and skills, and told them how to keep the balance of the world. When everything was settled, they created dragons to guard this world. Since then, titans vanished mystically…

Thousands of years later, no one knows where the noble dragons are. People only hear about them in the legend. Without the shelter of the dragon guardians, battles broke out among different races. Racial conflicts on territory were further intensified. The peaceful continent had been corrupted by wars and destruction. During the long period warfare, two outstanding factions had been formed and strengthened. The Alliance and the Horde——human and dwarf joined together to drive off trolls. The two former races also accepted the elves who had been oppressed by orcs for long. So the three races formed the Alliance. On the other side, under the help of taurens, orcs had successfully ravaged some territory from elves. After that, the isolated trolls joined the army of orcs and taurens. The three races built the Horde faction. Thus, the chaos on this continent finally developed into the conflict between the Alliance and the Horde.

Finally, the decisive battle between the Alliance and the Horde broke out in the center of the land. Both sides gathered the most elite armies, intending to settle the argument once and for all. When the battle turned white-hot, a great number of demons descended from another world. These demons had desired for the continent for a long time. The assault was launched just when the two factions were weak at both sides. Those exhausted soldiers were too astonished to face the Demon Legion, and they instinctively scattered and ran for life.

After that catastrophe, the center of the land was occupied by the Demon Legion, and they began to extend their territory from then on. What’s worse is that demons had awakened the undead and signed a pact with nagas, which greatly enlarged the evil force. Now, the Alliance and the Horde are busy assembling the lost companions from all over the continent to rebuild their honor and glory.
