Minecraft Meets World of Warcraft

Here's a mod the combines the Minecreft engine with a World of Warcraft MMORPG environment.

What do you get when you toss Minecraft and World of Warcraft into a mixing bowl? How about a mod with the strange title of Mine of WorldCraft.

Although some may agree that World of Minecraft may roll off the tongue a little better than the current title, the mod's mixture of words was likely chosen to escape any legal hounds that may be sniffing at the project. Nevertheless, the game itself should remain unscathed. Unfortunately, little else is known about the mod save for what's seen in the video below.

The idea should be fairly obvious: it's a fantasy-based MMORPG using the Minecraft engine. The in-game world features the typical Minecraft pixilated visuals, but the overlying UI is more in tune with Blizzard's game or other MMORPGs on the market. Choose a faction, a gender, a specific class, and you're on your way to hacking up blocky wolves and donning super-awesome armor in a Minecraft/World of Warcraft hybrid environment.

Whether this mod is for real or just a joke on behalf of a very creative film maker, the clip is highly entertaining to watch. Little details will bring a smile to any MMORPG fan's face such as the Night Elf race that will "likely die out due to a shortage of males anytime now" to the description of the Paladin class which reads "Paladins are a weird kind of people with an extreme love for Notch and the color yellow."

    Sure it's just a video project and not an "actual" mod but it's still awesome.

    @Author, this YouTuber has made an official thread to share his videos on the MMO-C offtopic forums. It is indeed random video editing for fun.

    Exactly. So unlike the articles speculation that the misnamed title is enough to avoid legal hounds, they will be shut down fast. Its a blatant copy of even the same color schemes, the same UI frame design, the identical icons as the MMO and no attempt to change the character creation screen. Way too close the original it is paying homage to, and wont survive. IF in fact this is a live demo/mod being built and not just a video to prove "it can be done".

    Awww, someone doesn't understand how copy right laws work. Blizzard cannot sue this guy. DMCA + The grounds that this is technically a "parody" and the creator is not trying to make a profit off it. I doubt it is real, but still you need to cool your jets.

    FAKE: all you had to do was copy and paste some crap from WoW onto the video and paste some other crap from Minecraft onto what you pasted from WoW, all this guy is is some poser, he didnt give a link to downlkoad or play the mod/game you notice.
