Best Answer

World of Warcraft was pitched by Bill Petras and Kevin Beardslee to Jeff Strain (Nomad project lead). Strain then pitched the idea to management who within 3 days approved the project. Project "Nomad" was cancelled and the original 7 developers from that team lead by Allen Adham (Blizzard founder) and Shane Dabiri (Proucer) began work on the World of Warcraft.

The idea came about after multiple team members had begun playing Everquest and the idea to make a better version was conceived.

Rob Pardo and Bob Fitch among other Warcarft III developers contributed to the design as well.

Jeff Kaplan (Tigole) joined the WoW team roughly a third to halfway through development as a quest designer and contributed heavily to the raiding experience as well as Alex Afriasabi (Furor).
