Dragonflight Collector’s Edition Codes and Upgrades

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.

    MoP had similar uphill battles with convincing the community it was worth playing as the Pandaren race/lore was entirely based on a joke. The critics back then were just as ruthless. But ultimately it succeeded and was a good time. Probably my second favorite overall.
    This is an insightful post.

    Makes sense considering how much work they're saving with one of the big features being the "talent rework", which consists of stripping out baseline abilities and passives while and slapping in some legendary powers or old set bonuses to fill in the gaps. Talent recycling is a more appropriate term for what they're doing with the talent tree, cause it sure as hell isn't being made from anything "new".

    There are plenty of free space there. I don't think that the reason why we're getting books with lower count of pages are the bonus items.

    No sorry, it wasn't. But they did the same with Cata WoD and SL (ironically not for BfA); they cut the game down by 1 Patch and moved on to the next expansion. Sorry, but every dum dum screaming here for "THIS EXPANSION IS RUSHED" have absolutely no idea. They already said that they are actually ahead on the expansion and i believe it.

    Simply because this time we don't have a convenant, azerite armor, soulbinds or something like this that require massive testing and balancing. There are no temporary powers that can interact with the class, instead we get the basics (FINALLY) and flying and an new ui for professions. Sorry, but really, what do people think needs months and monts of testing. The answer is: new stuff that are the first time in an expansion. And really, testing how to fly does not take months, test if the ui for professions work does not take months and REALLY, the TALENT TREES?

    We had a small thing called CLASSIC WOW. Do people think that the devs that work there live in their classic-bubble. Nope. Because the difference between Talents in Classic and the one in Shadowlands is actually the UI, that's all.

    Dear "RUSHED"-Screamers: please tell me honestly what would take MONTHS to test, PLEASE.

    And sorry, but i don't doubt that the game will be good; there hasn't been a SINGLE wow-expansion where leveling wasn't good, the singleplayer-endgame is the biggest issue of wow, but not the leveling.

    Does anyone actually think 10.0 is this year? Or did Blizz just throw out the date so they can start taking preorders to boost WoW's income numbers for the quarter?

    Well, we'll have to agree to disagree on which expansions we think were good, though the glaring lack of the Abyssal Maw still stings.

    But you're right. Not much will need testing. Even if there's a mission style system, ala Garrisons, Order Halls, BfA, or Shadowlands, it's usually been a streamlined version of the iteration that came before, I suppose except for the Covenant Command Table, but if we see anything like that in Dragonflight, it's already been pretty well worked out on how it'll operate...not much testing to be done. They can and probably have tested much of the quest content in house. So what, we'll get an extended beta for the playerbase to work out bugs and kinks.

    Though I do wonder if we'll get some kind of Covenant-style pledging to a Dragonflight. Still so much they haven't shown us.

    Yeah, i actually still wanna see the Abyssal Maw It was such a cool idea. The Azshara patch in BFA kind of gave me what I want, but I'm sure it wasn't going to be 1-1. Its a whole other story for starters. Still, I got my fix with that patch, so its not all too bad. What I really wanted was an Nzod zone + a 5 man dungeon during BFA. Argus style of a patch, not just redoing old zones, which was cool but not as cool as it could have been.

    Cata hmm, changed my mind somewhat in regards to it. I consired it a total disaster but I moved to thinking it could have been great but they blew it on two points.
    The big thing was revamping and to be honest, half of the zones seems like the had half the time budget they needed, they were unpolished.
    And the last raid, Deathwing... that was a clusterfuck.

    Apart from that I look back with fond memories on for example the dungeons that I thnk overall were great and some other bits. Sadly it still cant carry the two very important letdowns for me.
