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).

    The really scary thing is that they took a big chunk of the Titan staff to work on WoW. It's taking them that long with all these guys working on it. It's pretty clear at this point that simple laziness has set in at Blizzard. Apparently they don't fire anyone for slacking off, so people working there just kind of take it easy. Or so it seems.

    December 20th? Seriously?

    Remember when they said they could either use resources to make new content or go and re-do old stuff.

    Well, perhaps they went down the less content and re-do old stuff but charge more path.

    Looks like announcing a "release date" (which that is NOT) was like casting "Summon Mr. Hankey".

    Most of the MMORPG players obviosly are not this type of person, who cares about graphics the most. In fact, the reality, that WoW is still the strongest mmorpg is the evidence, that rpg players care about graphics really little.

    "why would one want to play a game from 2004 with enhanced graphics while they can play the top notch games" ... because every other aspect of the game is worse than its WoW counterpart?

    aah dd version is now available in Europe too!
  1. Shirohibiki's Avatar
    Holy shit, those prices though? I don't even care about the release date. What the fuck is wrong with those prices? Since WHEN did it have to jump to $70 for the fucking digital deluxe?! It was 50 for MoP, wasn't it? I bought the DD to get AWAY from the obscene prices! Wow, is there any hope of them lowering it? There's no way I'm not getting that mount, but what am I paying for? We got all that extra stuff last time for 50-60, didn't we? I'm highly concerned about this.

    SWTOR's expansion was $10, how can they justify this price?

    December date is definately a placeholder imo. Maybe blizzard were required by law to give a random date (within reason) of release in order to make the game available for pre-purchase.

    You know it won't release until at least October which is still fucking insane. No beta yet.... when do you think it's going to be released there, cowgirl?

    December 20th? What the actual fuck.

    So depressed to see some people preordering this, yet they complain the game isn't as good as it was. People pre-ordering an expansion we know close to nothing about, is sold at $50, 9 months before its release date, are the main reason the game industry in general and now Blizzard turned to shit.

    That's why we can't have nice things.

    I can't believe they are pushing the pre-order when they state: Expected release on or before december 20th. I guess, we should pre-order our StarWars Episode VII movie tickets, because, it's soon coming up, and it CAN'T BE BAD right? Might as well just give them money for a product not even done yet.

    What the hell is Blizzard thinking? December release date means a full year with no new raid/dungeon content and players will be burned out if it takes that long. Sorry but a new pvp season isn't gonna cut it for most players in my opinion. I had release pegged for September at the latest. Guess I'll be playing ESO for at least 7 months if December is the actual RD.
  1. fuman's Avatar
    Ofc it's going to be released in December, it always was. The only reason they have added the or before part is coz they know ppl will kick off about it, I mean come on it's not even beta yet lol

    While so many of you scream of rage and fear I'll just pop in here and say that I like the box art.

    I would complain about the price, but then again I just paid $50 for Hearthstone booster packs. $50, for pixels.
