There is nothing out there currently that is easy to use without some programming languange experience.

If you have enough money you can probobly license an engine like WoWs. (Rift is using the same engine as Warhammer Online, for example).

how much does it cost to license an engine like wow?
Don't quote me, but I would suspect anywhere from $50,000 - $100,000's
can i pay only after my mmorpg starts making money?
I'm not sure, I do know you can use the Unreal Development Kit for free until you make money.  It's not a strict MMO engine, but it has been used for some MMOs ( I think Aion used it, but I'm not sure)

you need to learn how to program, a good program to start off with is rpg maker but the graphics won't be anywhere close to WoW

To create your own MMORPG you need to learn the programmers language and you need to be experienced with the LIB computer language, network setup, LAN network and financial help.

it would be very hard, you would have tpo start out programming, and doing very basic games. You could start out with gamemaker for very basic video games:


you would probaly need to learn c++ or similar also.

There is no easy way to do it. That is one of the reasons why it takes hundreds of people to program, develope, and create content for an MMO like WoW. If you want to start to learn game programming, I would recomment checking out There are some friendly people there who can help you along and get you started. If you want to start out learning to program by making an MMO, I would highly recommend against that as it is likely near impossible due to the complexity of such a task. Good Luck!
