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).

    So the normal version is almost 10€ more expensive than MoP's counterpart was on presale.

    Not impressed at all. The only thing that seems to be increasing lately about Blizzard is the cost of their products.

    I am one of the biggest Blizzard fanboys you might ever meet. If you read the tone of my past posts you'll see I blatantly defended Blizzard in every way, no matter how outlandish their ideas were or bad moves they were prepared to do. But now for me this might be the drop that overflowed the glass.

    I don't want to pay more for something that might have even less content that the previous instalments.

    The early release for prePURCHASE and ofc the price hike is yet more indicative of Blizzards financial obligations to continue to turn a profit for their investors even with diminishing revenue streams (overall sub losses trends for the last few years).

    They cannot from a marketing point of view over saturate the Blizz store with a new shiny pixel mount every 2-3 months anymore, and expect continued high levels of purchases from players willing to pony up the cash. Eventually even the die hard loyals will get fed up of yet another mount being shoved in their face each financial quarter.

    So this financial quarters marketing gimmick is getting revenue from pre purchases of an expansion that has no confirmed release date and is not even in beta yet. In addition to the revenue they squeezed out from the Iron Skyreaver, which may not have sold as well as they had initially hoped. I wonder what it will be next quarter if WoD does not indeed ship before the end of June (almost a foregone conclusion at this point).

    The suggested release date is a bit of a buzzkill, especially with no prior indications of additional content leaving players to hope for a nearby light at the end of the tunnel.

    I suspect there's more to it, but Blizzard's going to need a little PR for its PR.

    They should offer one without the damn boost.

    I wish I could order an empty box from Blizz for MOP an WOD. I love the idea of Digital editions, especially a Digital Deluxe edition

    For those bitching about price, in all honesty it's 10 bucks.... really? 10 bucks is bringing the house down? I'm a poor ass student with loans out the ass and I can swing a 10 buck difference no problem. At least it isn't 60 like console games now. It was only about time, cool thing called inflation, rather them charge 10 bucks more for the xpac than raise my sub fee.

    As for release date oh well, not like I can do anything about it. Doubt it'll take until December though.

    Considering we know next to nothing right now about this expansion and that the release date is still uncertain, those of you who decide to pre-order this and then a few months from now complain that "the game is shit, I want my 50 bucks back, they deceived me!" will have no one to turn to. All legitimacy in your complaints will be gone if you take a dive and then hit your head at the bottom.

    also, rofl at people complaining about price. MOP DDE was 60. ONOZ THEY RAISED THE PRICE 10 DOLLARS

    To those of you emphasizing the word before, do you not think that Blizzard are intelligent enough to know that this would cause a frenzy?

    What an ugly box cover, no warcraft-vibe at all. Higher price, not a suprise- it is blizzard after all

    The time-span between Patch 5.4 and WoD reminds me a lot of the time-span between WotLK's final patch and Cataclysm. Both took ± a year and so will this one, even if it gets released much earlier; in October for example. I fear it will even take longer than the release of Cataclysm at that time. But I have all the time of the world and I love the box-art

    I guess a physical CE will be available to purchase when a date is more or less set in stone

    For all u people bitching at the price, why not get a JOB, un-sub for 1/2year and play another game, rob some old woman or ask ur mommy to use her credit card again
    How about you think for once and realize perhaps people arent complaining about the price because they cant afford it, but because the price for an expansion has increased this time and so far feature-wise isnt even remotely justifying that increase?

    Well actually that's the thing - the moronic haters and whiners are all ex-fanboys. It's two ends of the same silly spectrum.

    They put that date there as the definitive 'will not release later than' date.
    December 20 is the last day of Fall. I don't know where they mentioned Fall 2014 as a release window, but it sounds like they are using the December 20 date so they can potentially release it that late and still have released in Fall 2014 and not be liars (technically).
