Dragonflight Pricing Survey
Blizzard sent out a survey to some players testing different price points for the different versions of the expansion. Keep in mind this is just market research and the final prices may be completely different. The reward tiers seem to be similar to the Shadowlands expansion editions.

  • Base Edition - $29.99, $39.99, or $44.99
    • Includes Game
  • Heroic Edition - $54.99, $59.99, $64.99, or $69.99
    • Includes Game, Character Boost, and Mount
  • Epic Edition - $79.99, $84.99, or $89.99
    • Includes Game, Character Boost, Mount, Pet, Armor Transmog, and 30 Days of Game Time

Hail, traveler, and welcome to the World of Warcraft!

Azeroth is a living world full of people like you - other players with different backgrounds, cultures, experiences, and histories who have all come together to play World of Warcraft. Every player deserves to have a world that they feel safe in, so please take a minute to read our Social Contract.

While in Azeroth, do your best to:

  • Connect with other players and make friends! Being courteous in group content can help you and your teammates have the best time possible. Sending a friendly hello message can help set your group up for success.
  • Play as a team with your fellow players - whether in dungeons, raids, battlegrounds, arenas, or out questing in the world. Do your best to support your team through your communication and behaviors so that you can all celebrate your success together.
  • Assist other players that you encounter in the world. Maybe they need some help defeating a tough monster, or maybe they could use a little healing!
  • Help answer questions others have in chat channels like General or Trade. We were all newbies once - one person offering some help can go a long way!

We recognize that the Internet is not always a safe haven. With that in mind, please note that the following behaviors are not accepted in Azeroth:

  • Hate speech, including negative comments that target another player's identity, including aspects like race, gender, or ability
  • Harassment, threats, or abusive / derogatory language and behaviors
  • Spamming, advertising, or other disruptive behaviors

If you harm your fellow adventurers with any of the above behaviors, you are subject to punishment up to and including suspension of your account.

It's a big world out there, with all sorts of people in it. So please try to be respectful of each other, and if you ever feel like somebody is acting against this code, please report those behaviors so that our team can look into it. Together, you can help us make the World of Warcraft a safe home away from home for everyone.

Accept / Exit Game

    The game already has so little social interaction and this will keep people from interacting with each other all the more. Same with the new MKG thing Biden has started. People will just stop talking online for fear of retaliation.

    R.I.P. freedom of speech. I get not liking all the antivaxx people as I don't like them either but this is how you breed insurrection and extremists factions doing extremist things.
    That's a bit extreme. All it's asking you is to not be a dick. There's a way to provide constructive criticism.
    Spot the difference : You're dps is shit vs Hey noticed you are not using X ability as often as you should. Try to use it everytime it's off cooldown it will improve your dps

    The pricing thing shows that they're willing to sell the game for 30$

    What that means is that we shouldn't accept to pay more than 30$ for the base edition

    If someone berates my lack of skill or knowledge of the game, I will wear that like a badge of honor. While they were wasting their life learning a useless skill like being good in a video game, I went to school, got my Masters, live in a house that is worth (currently) 600k, and is paid off, and make 6 figures.

    Yeah. I suck, but at least I didn't waste years of my life learning a useless skill like trying to understand if Arcane is better than Fire.
    its so weird to me that people just come on the internet and fuckin lie all the time for no reason.
    No one believes you
    No one cares if its true, congrats on the house, youre still fuckin ass at the game.

    Yes, I'm sure both of those are true.

    Always cheaper, we already pay a monthly fee that is way too much in some markets to play the damn game with no family pricing options either to boot. Stop over-charging for expansions.

    I agree, anyone who says it should be more is just being a prick 100%. If you make a lot of money you should still be for the lower price since all you do when you pay more is fill some Bobby Kotick fuckers pockets with money they did not earn in any way. The Devs are on salary, they don't get shit extra in most cases, and definitely not any of the sales.

    FF14 still has subs and paid expansions.

    You apparently haven't played much other than WoW...

    Including gametime in the epic edition seems weird, and pretty crap if you do the 6 month sub thing but hey ho, just glad the mount is not gated into the epic version.
