World of Warcraft is an MMORPG taking place in the Warcraft universe. It's story immediately follows that of Warcraft III. It was developed by Blizzard Entertainment. Five expansions have been released for the game. In order; The Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King, Cataclysm, Mists of Pandaria, and Warlords of Draenor.
The host of Scotch of Smoke Rings, Oxhorn, had become well known throughout World of Warcraft's community for his huge role in the early machinima community. Oxhorn played the game from classic WoW until early Cataclysm, but eventually found he couldn't dedicate the time to play it any longer.

- Oxhorn has stated his favorite expansion was Wrath of the Lich King, largely in part due to its Nordic environment.
- This would not be Oxhorn's last delve into the Warcraft universe, as he later began to play Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft starting in the beta.
- Although he never played Mists of Pandaria. He did the Pandaren leveling experience in the beta, and even made some videos on the quests.
- Most of Oxhorn's videos were filmed during Vanilla or The Burning Crusade.
- Oxhorn briefly revived his account to fish in-game with WoWCrendor for Crendor's interview show, Fishing with Crendor. After the video he deactivated his subscription.
