What is important, though, is a small understanding of the game. Please watch these 2 Cinematic Trailers of WoW. (Don't worry they aren't long)
Watch the "World of Warcraft Cinematic Trailer" (6th from bottom) and
the " The Burning Crusade Cinematic Intro" (About halfway down) http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/down…ovies.html
We want a dark colored site to appeal to gamers. This game is very beautiful with mystical powers, dark evil dungeons, and enchanted forests. But please do not misunderstand (and this happens all the time) the game has beautiful graphics but that doesn't mean we want the site covered in all kinds of colors and textures and graphics, remember to balance it! It is possible for the your design to be simple and boring and we still end up choosing you. User experience comes first but if you can add subtle artistic beauty into it, that is a huge plus.
Site PSDs and JPGs.
Quest Log: http://manaview.com/questlog.jpg (Image of the questlog ingame. At the bottom right of the site is a quest log, this is something also found inside the game and we want to use a similar format and colors to whats found ingame. Green Text for easy quests, Yellow for normal, Red for hard).

http://wow.curse.com/ - Very popular site with a great clean design. They use their logo throughout the site to give it style and also helps with branding.
http://www.worldofraids.com/ - This site was purchased by Curse. You can see some similarities in the design.
The site must have 2 advertisement slots TOGETHER. There needs to be a 728x90 ad on top of a 300x250. Ex. http://wow.allakhazam.com/-
The PSD was made only to SHOW you what will be on the site. The layout and design can and should be changed.-
The logo on the PSD does NOT need to be used but you can if you want.
