Mage Knight is a bit similar but adds more mechanics (that are good).

Runebound is similar in the sense of being an overland adventure game where you build up your characters to tackle increasing challenges. It's actually a little easier to play than WoW:tBG but is also hard to find now since it is out of print too.

There isn't a heck of a lot out there that is like it (Mageknight is not).
What elements specifically do you enjoy about it?

"Skill Tree", farming and boss fight. Seems a little like Dota.

Anyway, thnx by all answers.

I completely agree. There isn't really anything similar, and Mage Knight is not a good recommendation. Runebound probably is the closest though (although it's also OOP, so it's not gonna be easy to get a hold of either).
It's got a lot in common with WoW:tbg, but the combat system (while still good) is just nothing compared to the combat in WoW (and that's what makes WoW so great and unique in my book!)
My suggestion, track down a copy of WoW:tbg. It's got the coolest combat system ever, and leveling is really cool too cuz you have to put a lot of thought into how you want to grow your character.

Minus the "skill tree", Runebound is your next best choice (though as I said, it's also OOP).

*Runebound does have class decks, which add more choices to leveling.

Runebound isn't really very close either.
Just look for a second hand copy of WoW, enough people complained about it that there should be good priced hardly played copies out there surely?

I would be more than happy to sell or trade my like-new copy to you. Let me know if you want it.

It's actually quite pricey on the secondary market

Yeah which is really dumb considering there was so much hate against it back in the day.

*Interesting side note, despite all the hate, at the time, WoW the boardgame was FFG's best selling boardgame.

With the exception maybe of Wrath of the Lich King, FFG lost the blizzard license before those expansions existed.
