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.



Pre-Order and Boost FAQ

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).

    If that is really all the storyline there is guess it's understandable all the free stuff blizz is provide to entice players (new or old). The whole lvl 90 boost with flying + gold + gear + 4 22-slot bags, worth 1000s of gold right there.

    But if that's all the storyline there is all that stuff isn't going to make players stay. Sounds quite limited and small. Oh well.

    Cata had 12 million subs at the beginning but then they started losing subs. Last Quarter, they gained 200k subs. Probably because of their black friday sale at 75% off.

    If you have nothing to do in-game, then that's not exactly rocket science. You don't pay if you have no reason to play.

    As for release date, I'm not fussed either way. I will keep playing as I am right now up until release. No drama, no bitching.

    Lol, ever heard of the term "subjective"?

    Stop being such a little dweeb, let people play games they want and don't try to enforce YOUR views on us. To me, there are not tonnes of better games out there. If so, I'd probably already be playing them. WoW > all to me, and that's what subjectivity stands for.
    I'm glad it's not just me who's struggling to come to terms with what we're told we should be thinking, honestly I really have tried but I'm weak and keep letting my own mind and opinions of todays WoD update cloud my judgement.

    What you're witnessing right now is the transformation of the fanboys into haters. After seeing the release date and price they are going into a cocoon. It's quite a beautiful thing to watch.

    I will see your BEFORE and raise you an EXPECTED.

    Now we have: "Warlords of Draenor is EXPECTED to be released on or BEFORE December 20, 2014"[/QUOTE]

    Expected nullifies the firm release by date. Blizz feels they have enough game addicts willing to buy numerous pre-purchases or character boosts to justify loosing a few million more subs. Let's be honest, a good number of subs will return and buy additional character boosts. Numerically it will balance out if not work out better for Blizz. I give the number crunchers credit for figuring this one out.

    So much for "WoD will be out sooner than you expected."

    SoO came out Sept 10, even with a Fall release that's still a year of SoO. People don't like being given only one tier of content for a whole year. I'm not telling them to rush, because we don't want a rushed and half-assed product like Cataclysm, but they shouldn't make all these "we're increasing our team! expansions will come out faster! WOD sooner than you think!" statements if they can't back them up.

    so the xpac is coming out in october/november

    sigh
  1. Aspen's Avatar
    Okay.... one year of SoO confirmed pretty much with them saying its coming out in the fall..... plus the price of the game raised..... plus more and more and more and more expensive services in the in game store..... plus the monthly cost of subscription has not dropped in almost 10 years ..... equals I think I have the lowest opinion of Blizzard possible right now. Which pains me to say because I really used to hold them in the highest regard....
  1. Tofifi's Avatar
    Why is this shit more expensive than MoP? And lolxdrofl on that release date. Pretty much same feels as the guy above.

    Are you kidding me blizzard? 45€ for a goddamn Expansion? Lol if this isn't a reason for many to wait months until the price is lowered...
    And pls don't tell me that it's justified just because it contains a free character upgrade.....They should've offered it for free (the regular EU price for a expac has been 34,99€ since BC).
  1. Duster505's Avatar
    Totally and utterly disgusting.

    The only positive about this is that fanboys are trying their very best to justify more than a year of last raid content (once more after BLizzard claimed they had a plan to shorten it)...

    For me.. everything about this makes it clear as daylight what I will be doing with my game time from now on. NOT PLAYING WOW.
  1. Moradim's Avatar
    so for the xpac we get less content, at a higher price...

    I suddenly feel like an Apple customer.
