It falls to you to crush the Iron Horde before the Dark Portal is completed and the invasion begins. Travel to the Draenor of the past: a world of giants and monsters, a world the fearsome and legendary orc chieftains call home. Face the dangers of this untamable world and bring down the Iron Horde—before both the past and the future are lost forever.

Warlords of Draenor launches worldwide this fall, and you can prepare for the coming invasion now by immediately* boosting a character to level 90 with your pre-purchase of the expansion digitally.

To stop Garrosh’s engines of conquest, you’ll need to recruit allies to your cause and construct a mighty Garrison; explore all-new zones, dungeons, raids, and scenarios across Draenor for resources to aid in your quest; and achieve new heights of power on the way to the new level cap of 100.

Interested in boosting more than one character to level 90 right away? In addition to the boost you get with your Warlords of Draenor pre-purchase, you also have the option of buying additional character boosts directly through the Shop in-game.

Warlords of Draenor is available for pre-purchase digitally in standard and Digital Deluxe editions. The Digital Deluxe Edition comes with a cache of in-game goodies for your favorite Blizzard games, including a Dread Raven mount and Dread Hatchling pet to accompany you in World of Warcraft, Grommash Hellscream and Blackhand Battle.net portraits to intimidate your foes with in StarCraft II, and a battle-torn Warsong Pennant to fuel your demon-slaying rage in Diablo III. What’s more, like the instant character boost, these will be available to you immediately upon your pre-purchase of the expansion.*

Warlords of Draenor will also be available as a retail-exclusive Collector’s Edition (in limited quantities), which comes with the in-game extras from the Digital Deluxe Edition along with an array of awesome artifacts from the physical realm, including a hardcover art book, behind-the-scenes Blu-ray/DVD set, Warlords of Draenor mouse pad, and CD soundtrack featuring epic music from the expansion. Check with your local retailer for pre-ordering details. We’ll have more specifics to share on the Collector’s Edition closer to the game’s launch.

For more information on this fall’s launch of Warlords of Draenor, check out the official press release and the Warlords of Draenor web page.

Level 90 Boosts Now Available
You are now able to purchase Level 90 Boosts for $60 in game! Your boosted character gets:

  • Item level 483 gear. You can quickly upgrade to the epic item level 496 gear from Timeless Isle chests.
  • 150 gold
  • 4 Embersilk (22-slot) bags
  • A stack of 20 food items
  • If a boosted character was already level 60 or above, their existing Primary Professions and First Aid are bumped up to level 600, as mentioned above
  • A faction-specific flying mount - a traditional Wind Rider for Horde or Gryphon for Alliance
  • Artisan flying - that’s one rank below max flight speed
  • Northrend, Kalimdor/Eastern Kingdoms, and Pandaria regional flying skills trained





Digital Deluxe - Dread Raven Mount and Pet
The Reins of the Dread Raven is the Digital Deluxe edition mount that goes with the Dread Hatchling Digital Deluxe edition pet.

When you pre-purchase the expansion* or purchase a standalone character boost from within the game, a Character Boost token will appear on the character-select screen in World of Warcraft. Once you purchase it through either method, you can click the token to apply your boost at any time—no need to use it right away if you’re not ready. Keep in mind that character boosts are irreversible, so it’s a good idea to make sure you’re boosting the character you really want to.

If you boost a level-60 or higher character, you’ll also get an extra bonus: both of your Primary Professions will be bumped up to 600, so you’ll be an instant pro at your chosen callings. If you’re boosting an existing character and want to change professions, just make sure you train the professions you want before you apply the boost. Also, if you’re not quite level 60 yet (but thiiiiiiis close), you might want to consider holding on to your boost token until you earn those last couple of levels—your boost will still be waiting for you when you’re ready.

Check out the Character Boost web page, watch our video guide, or read the support article for lots more information.

Q: Can I apply my character boost to any character on any World of Warcraft account?
That depends! If you pre-purchase the expansion, the Character Boost token will only appear when you’re logged in to the WoW account you upgraded to Warlords of Draenor. If you purchase a standalone character boost, you’ll be able to use it on any eligible World of Warcraft account on your Battle.net account.
Note that if you’re upgrading to Warlords of Draenor directly from the World of Warcraft Starter Edition, it may take up to 72 hours for you to receive your character boost.

Q: When will I receive my in-game goodies if I pre-purchase the Digital Deluxe Edition?
If you pre-purchase the Digital Deluxe Edition, you’ll receive the World of Warcraft pet and mount right away, along with the in-game bonuses for StarCraft II and Diablo III.

Q: Can I get a character boost immediately if I decide to pre-order a physical standard or Collector’s Edition from a retailer?
Players who purchase either the physical standard edition or physical Collector’s Edition from a retail store will get their character boost when they receive their copies at the launch of the expansion.

If you’d like to receive your character boost immediately*, several options are currently available:

  • Pre-purchase the expansion digitally through the Battle.net Shop.
  • Pre-purchase the Digital Standard Edition or Digital Deluxe Edition from GameStop in the U.S. or (coming soon) EB Games in Canada (paid in full at the time of pre-purchase). You’ll receive a code redeemable on Battle.net that will unlock your level-90 boost immediately* and also unlock a copy of the expansion pack when it releases.
  • Select retailers in the U.S. are also now selling Battle.net Balance gift cards. You can use these to charge up your Battle.net Balance to pre-purchase a digital copy of the game through the Battle.net Shop and unlock your level-90 boost immediately (sales tax may apply).

*Players upgrading to Warlords of Draenor from World of Warcraft Starter Edition must wait until trial restrictions are removed before character boost becomes available (may take up to 72 hours).

    Every expansion to date has been $40. There's no justification for them to raise it to $50 now. If we went by quality of the content seen so far, this is worth about $5 of TBC's $40.

    Can we use the 90 boost now?

    "the 10$ price jump is due to the level Boost! it's not free!"

    Gee, mate, the expansions have stayed the same price for 10 years. Ever consider maybe this little thing called inflation caught up?
  1. Meldon's Avatar
    People telleing other to get a job because 10$ are not much at all.
    It's not about the 10$, It's all about paying something for what is worth and to me like many other players, WoD is not adding more than MoP (imho even less) thus it should not be worth more.

    I wonder if this will finally put an end to the silly talk in these forums of a spring or summer release.

    Pronbably not, wishfull thinking is a hard kill.

    Console games still cost the same as they did 8 years ago. Has nothing to do with inflation.

    Considering we pay a rather hefty sub fee every month + cash shops + past expansions it's rather insulting for them to increase the fee...

    So I am seeing the dread raven pets filling up the auction house, is this against any ToS?

    Gotta say I'm disappointed in the boost interface. No explanation about what each spec is used for? That's just lazy.
  1. Primaryjane's Avatar
    Just gonna point out that Dec. 20th is the last day of autumn. So, that would technically still be a "fall" release date. I haven't played since before Thanksgiving, so maybe an entire year away from WoW will give me the urge to resub for release. For me, it's really going to depend on how well ESO does. If Zeni keeps their word about the 4-6 week update schedule and does a decent job at them, I'll never look back.

    expansion = $50, brazil = $100 (local currency)
    boost = 60$ , brazil = $150
    I don't understand, at least we pay only +/- 7 dollars subs

    Cars, computers parts, console games, pc games in general.. all those arent affected by this inflation you speak of. And in the case of computer parts, I'd even say its cheaper now than it was in 2004.

    Hah, well Blizzard won't be getting any more money from me.
    Not only the late aspired release date, the ridiculous price aswell.
    One should think that years of stuffing with money would earn a
    bit of trust, but apparently not. WoW was the most expensive game I ever played.
    It is sad that the best MMO released isn't good enough anymore.

All legitimacy in your complaints will be gone if you take a dive and then hit your head at the bottom.
    Its the principle of the matter. Blizzard has been milking a dying player base for the last 3-4 years, and now they 1) increase the prices of each form of their expansion (normal, digital and collectors), and 2) Plan to release the expansion at the latest on 12/20/2013.

    Blizzard as far as their MMO WoW goes has really gone downhill fast. Thank goodness they still produce other games like Diablo and Starcraft, otherwise I would abandon this company completely.

    Bull. Games use to be 50 dollars now they're about 60 for a new release. Development costs go up, marketing costs go up, support costs go up. That's inflation.
  1. bregtann's Avatar
    To those claiming either that the price should be fixed or that a raise to $50 is justified because of inflation, the truth is somewhere in between.

    Since the first expansion was released in 2007, US cumulative inflation has been 12%, indicating that $40 in 2007 is equivalent of $45 today. In the US that is, European mileage may vary.

    What if I don't want a 90 boost? I still have to pay €45 for the game? Btw, $50 = €36, not €45. Scam..
  1. pharma's Avatar
    Regular version price is wrongly converted to euro.

    $50 = ~35€ (not 45€)

    Unfortunately a lot of people of late are not exactly that bright if they actually did some googling they would know that Spring Southern Hemisphere / Autumn Northern Hemisphere goes from the 19th / 20th of September and Summer Southern Hemisphere / Winter Northern Hemisphere starts on the 21st of December 2014..
