Take Wing to a New Beginning
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

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.

    Except WoD. Anyone else remember Bladespire Citadel? Big sad.

    Seems to be rushed to have something in the 4th quarter. True enough though that no one here has any idea whatsoever about how far along they are.

    I won't tell anyone what to do but I never pre-order with digital downloads. I've never regretted that. You likely won't either.

    Was just talking to my partner about this. We've been preordering these damn expansions since BC. We know we're whores and we know we're gonna do it, even after saying we won't. We can either give in now, or after much pissing and moaning later.

    Preordering presently.

    Meanwhile, they're reaching for their credit cards or WoW Tokens so they can get the new shinies from pre-ordering
    Don’t preorder! Buy it after release! It makes a huge difference. And will send a message to blizz! /s

    Shadowlands is still in beta state and they are coming up with an expansion? wow.

    Oh I’ve pre ordered every expansion since Wrath, but after the last two will not be ordering this one. Will I buy it? Sure. But I’m not rewarding Blizz for the last two years by flooding them with money today.

    True, and even still if they push back the date the law is just set in place to allow them to get refunds if they want. It’s not like Germany will ban the sale of the video game or something. I honestly have no clue where people get this idea that Blizzard or other companies are somehow legally tied to the dates they set. They literally postponed wc3 just a couple of years ago by how long? Like a year and a half or something?

    There's a new encrypted 10.0 build on their CDN, so it's possible that beta will come out very soon.
  1. loras's Avatar
    Color me surprised at the timeframe, as everybody else seems to be.
    Definitely going to wait out the release first, see how it works out. Even a short expansion can be good if the quality is good, but i've gotta admit i've some scepticism.
    Then again they may have saved some time with SL's effective abandonment? We'll see.

    There's no harm in pre-ordering if you're going to buy it.

    Why are you on a site dedicated to WoW if you're not playing WoW?

    I'm going to be devil's advocate here and say that I don't believe this is entirely rushed. If you look at the content drought throughout Shadowlands, an entire patch seemingly cut from the expansion. It does seem like the development team went full steam ahead on Dragonflight since early Shadowlands launch. I'll admit that it's very concerning that we still don't even have an alpha and they are announcing it will launch by the end of the year. I really hope they do an open beta for this expansion to really stress test the game as much as possible. I have the feeling this expansion is going to repeat the bottleneck quest issues that plagued Cataclysm and WoD launch. Hopefully they pre-patch the Dracthyr so people can play test the class and get it ready for launch date, like they did with Demon Hunter.

    Seems Blizzard wants to end the year with two major launch titles, Dragonflight and Overwatch 2. Even if they have to pick up the pieces of a disaster launch in the following year.

    If the beta comes out in the next week or so, that gives it 5+ months of testing before release.

    How is that compared historically to previous beta timeframes?

    First there has to be an official alpha.
    Alpha to release timeframes has been 6-8 months the last few expacs.

    Does it even matter that much? Seems like 5 months is enough to betatest just about anything, assuming you're doing it effectively.

    exactly. or until Microsoft takes over.
  1. Zorachus's Avatar
    Also Blizzard wants Diablo IV released by June 2023, no later.

    When they showed the game off earlier this month, lots of people heard them say it'll be out in no more than 12 months at the latest.

    Lots of speculation D4 comes out April - June 2023 which will be their big money maker to start the new year.
