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.

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).

    Damn shame Flying mounts won't be permitted in the new zones, garrisons can't be moved / renamed / customized, some of the new models might not make it in time, and now the Capital Cities have been dumped in exchange for some crappy little forts in a PvP zone.

    Oh come on det.... even you aren't that dense. Aside from classic where flying mounts didn't exist, flying mounts have always been usable in the new zones once a character hit max level and got whatever license was needed.

    Another way of saying that is that for as long as flying mounts have existed in the game, we've been able to fly at max level in the new expansion zones. WoD changes that at least until 6.1... and if you think they'll bring flying back after that you're more optimistic than I am.

    The objection to Blizzard's flying stance in WoD has never been that we can't fly while leveling. That's a red herring put about by people like you. The objection is that they're changing how flying at max level works for no well-articulated reason (and no, 'breaks immersion' isn't one).

    Especially if you consider how Blizzard determines "success" in the game. It has nothing to do with what people actually like, but what they accept because they either have no option or Blizzard bribes them with in-game items. Take Arenas as an example of the latter, or, for the former, the fact that the Dark Portal in the Blasted Lands was only supposed to be level-limited until the traffic to Outland died down some after The Burning Crusade was released.

    Nevermind that a large portion of the major game changes they make are to make their life easier, not the players, and certainly not to make things more fun. The biggest example of that is the Talent system.

    So, yes, Blizzard deserves every ounce of criticism they get about changes such as this, the fortress situation, the leaving out of "promised" features, and so on and so forth.

    so excited. just boosted a druid for his versatile playstyle. love everything i see so far.

    getting gears is quick, farming is a breeze,

    boosted character has pretty much all the necessity and can be used right away without much hassle. farming in timeless isle is SO addictive if you are in a dominate fraction on PVP!!!

    Not sure why "breaks immersion" isn't a valid reason, Blizzard have articulated the reason well enough in my opinion, and personally I'm willing to trust the designers of a game reaching its 10yr anniversary with 7m+ subs.

    well, after all we are all spoiled and want to go faster and faster. Efficiency over all, right!!?

    it's a habit not a conscious choice. with flying mounts, who needs ground mounts!!!

    but flying is not well integrated with the core game mechanics which is fighting mobs/players in general so i am quite happy to see it go
