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).

    To the people complaining about the price, you do know there are other places to buy it from for a much lower price right?

    The DDE items are not preorder items. You'll get them even if you buy DDE after release.

    Not sure how I feel about the higher price for an expansion than that's ever been charged. I'm just not sure I see it being worth 50 bucks, if it had a new race or class, or, even a lot more dungeons and starting raids or something, but there really isn't anything that I see justifying 10$ extra. The extra 90 is whatever, since I have most characters at, or very close to max level, but adding to the cost for the bonus 90 is nonsense. Need to offer an option that doesn't include the 90 IMO.

    Yes I'm griping about the rise in prices, and yes I have a job. I can't see why it should cost any more than previously is all. Thought the 90 was supposed to be a freebie. Ohhhhh well

    Oh, I know! I more of just meant like, if I buy it now I'll be able to upgrade my account even while unsubbed right? xD;; I've... Never unsubbed in almost 6 years so I'm unfamiliar with how it works. But thank you.

    I don't see why people are laughing at others thinking the release date is December 20th.
    I mean, Cata was December 7th. BC was January, WotLK was November and MoP was September.
    So, it could definitely be a December title, or as early as September. Somewhere in that time frame.

    People thinking about a June release? That's probably when the beta will hit.

    Make a version of the game available for purchase WITHOUT the boost.

    That's a nice loophole they're using there, technicaly the boost is still free with the purchase of the expansion, the thing is the latter saw its price rise "mysteriously".

    The shortest ever beta was 3 months. and if thats the case with all the changes they are wanting to add in we will get a buggy as hell release. and beta isnt even out yet so absolute earliest would still be august.

    blizz wont do a sumer release due to player dips in summer. so expect september/october at best
