Join forces with the dragonflights of Azeroth as they return to the Dragon Isles, a lost realm of magic and wonder. There await the dracthyr evokers, an all-new playable race and class of humanoid dragonkin who stand ready to join the ranks of the Horde and Alliance.

Dragonflight Collector’s Edition Codes and Upgrades

We’ve seen a number of questions from players regarding the physical Collector’s Edition, which recently went on sale, and how they might be able to use the game code as a part of their purchase.

As there is no digital delivery of the code ahead of receipt of the physical box, there are two scenarios in play.
Players who aren’t concerned about getting access to any advance content or their digital items ahead of receipt of their Collector’s Edition box, can wait for it to be delivered to their shipping address. Once received, the game code can be found in the box and can be applied to the account they would like to upgrade to the Epic Edition of Dragonflight.

For those who would like to enjoy any advance content or their digital items before they receive the physical Collector’s Edition, they can purchase one of the digital options available and upgrade their account to Dragonflight immediately. After the Collector’s Edition is received, the code received in the box can be applied to the account they would like to upgrade to the Epic Edition of Dragonflight. Doing so will result in an automatic credit of Battle.net Balance to the associated account in the amount of the cost of the original digital purchase.

    I forgot the Q&A's. BUt yeah, that is another thing unable to be done.

    Didn't ion say in his latest interview that they start making the next expansion as soon as the current one is released? Unless I'm not remembering it right. So it's not completely out of the realm of possibility that the expansion is going as planned.

    But then again ion has said a lot of things that always end up as the complete opposite and blizzard have shown no signs of life as of late so who knows it might probably just crash and burn.

    They are usually two expansions ahead, at least in concept and general direction. Obviously they can't shift all the resources to working on an expansion until the prior one is released since the priority is the upcoming one, but there they usually have a general roadmap planned out much further than just one expansion ahead.

    Or, at least, that is how it was historically for a very long time. I can't definitely say they still operate this way. I think the teams that work on WoW have shrunk over the years as the game ages, so I don't know if they are still able to maintain that, but that is how they have functioned for years and years. I would be very surprised if they weren't working at least one expansion ahead still.

    They seem to be really trying to pull every trick in the book to just see how much money they can get away with taking.

    to be fair, ATVI quarterly earnings is coming up, so SL being made free or included may come later

    SL will become part of the base game as soon as the DF prepatch launches. It's been this way since WoD.

    Honestly I fully expect the talent system to be dropped in whatever is the pre-patch event, as I can't imagine there won't be one.

    They've made TWO massive changes based on feedback... so maybe you've not been paying attention.

    The pins are bad...

    I know they were a part of SL CE Box, but it shouldn't be a norm... They're ugly and I didn't even wear them once. I'd rather see something like we had in BFA, the fake-wood(plastic) stand with a heavy metal medallion with the Horde/Alliance symbols that could be a decoration on a desk/shelf.

    I don't know, maybe a dragon skull statue? Or something like that. Not cheap-made pins that are worth like 1,50$...

    I think YOU have short memory. Cataclysm revamped a load of old world zones and revamped the questing experience. That is vastly more content than Dragonflight will bring.
    That on top of the max level zones and flying on the Eastern kingdoms and Kalimdor.
    Cataclysm was crap, but it was cause it was overly ambitious.

    You're just trolling at this point. Good to know. Ignored.

    Fuck me, $172 plus another $52 in shipping, then tax and according to them likely duty fees. Hope this Legend company will not be the sole source for the collector edition box.

    I havnt been keeping up - what two massive changes have they made?
  1. Doffen's Avatar
    Should be fine, it is focusing so much more on class gameplay compared to content this time around. Its not much more content than TBC had tbf.

    Tuning is the one thing to worry about, which they won't get perfect anyway.

    This has delayed until 2023 written all over it

    At this point, a delayed release would be a best-case scenario. If they actually try to ship it for the holiday season, it's most likely gonna be a real rough go of things.
