Rulesets are sets of rules or game mechanics that constrain, direct, and operate within a game.

World of Warcraft has four types of rulesets that apply to various servers (or realms). They are predefined for each server. The game contents are all the same.

  • PvE (Player versus Environment) require you to flag yourself to engage in PvP combat.
  • PvP (Player versus Player) makes you always flagged when in Contested or enemy zones.
  • RP (Role-Playing) is a PvE subset that promotes roleplaying and limits out of character conversation for a more immersive experience.
  • RPPvP is the PvP version of the RP subset.
