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).

    sadly anything after june in my eyes is a failure in terms of release date. I am suspecting sept release. The problem is they have said they are further along than mop at the time of blizzcon. Yet by now we had an idea of when the beta started for MOP. still no date for WOD beta and its almost mid march. If the release isnt by August my sub will most likely be gone for good. A year of Siege is stupid especially considering they said themselves that it takes too long between final tier and new xpac and they plan to fix it.

    Do you really think that's the only valid reason people can have to be upset about the price?

    I don't think anybody thinks the date is set in stone but it's not encouraging is it. If they would have said on or before September then I'd be a bit more understanding but giving themselves the best part of 8 1/2 months of already old content is ridiculous. If the game was going to be this far away we should have had an extra patch, it's bullshit that they have time to add cash shops and character boosts without adding new content to the game.

    Might sound stupid, but can you preorder it and then unsub and still be able to... Use it and stuff? Because I just can't afford this, especially since I don't even play right now. So if I buy the DDE can I then unsub and resub when I get the key when it's available?

    You are the only one to blame here. If you buy the games when they actually come out, instead of preordering a game months before its release, you wouldn't load your credit card. Why not buy the game when they come out or when you plan to play them, not only is it more responsible "financially" (yes that's only $50), but it also doesn't give Blizz money up front. BTW, if you go to the restaurant, an expensive one, try to avoid paying up front, because if you end up with a crappy experience, you will only have yourself to blame for that too. Don't pre-order movie tickets that just announced its first teaser too.

    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
    Hello. I am an university student, almost done with my masters in engineering, already have a stable source of income, those 10€ wouldn't make me any poorer yet I'm complaining.

    If you stopped for a second you'd realise it's not about the price but the idea that Blizzard can rise the prices without consequences and everyone will comply like lemmings.

    But that's too hard, is it?

    40 SEK for an expac when all the others have been closer to 300?
    Latest date set for the release is December?

    The first is very aggrevating.
    The latter is very worrying. Your latest date set is December. You seriously expect that it -could- take that long? If you can't give a reliable date, don't give one at all.

    To all the people scoffing about "get a real job if you don't like the price kiddies" in a self-satisfied manner. Some of us have perfectly good incomes and plenty of cash and still don't want to give it to Blizzard for this shitshow of an expansion. I would sooner go to a bar and drink the $50 away in cocktails. Last nail in the coffin for me, I might try it when they inevitably want to start giving it away for free or for cheap 6 months after release when another few million have quit.

    I agree 100% and it's churning away on the order page. Lets see if it hits my card with 10,000 copies of the CE... that would be pro.
