When you enter the key from your Collector’s Edition, we will see the original transaction on your account and the credit will kick in. Remember, you will need to enter the Collector’s Edition key before the end of the year, as automatic Blizzard Balance credits will be turned off at 11:59pm PST on December 31, 2018.

    ^ This. The Artbooks are the main reason I get the collector's editions. ;(

    No real artbook and no real soundtrack (no cd, only a digital key), this might be the first time i skip a CE if the price is the same..

    Would be a real shame if they wouldn't include one for the first time

    And holy shit no physical soundtrack? What the hell? This sucks big time. No behind the scenes bluray as well?? Who the hell thought this would be a proper CE?

    The Artbook was one of the reasons that kept me purchasing the Collector's Edition, maybe this time i'll not even buy it.
    Going digital.

    Nothing for Diablo3, it's dead to them. (Still waiting on that D3 arena content *cough* )
    Decent content for the boxed CE though, something different than another mousepad is quite nice.

    This is rather disappointing, as a Blizzard Collector's Edition collector. The point of getting the physical Collector's Edition, is to get the physical items. Therefore making the soundtrack a digital download, rather than a physical CD seems rather daft. And, not including a dedicated art book... I would wager the art book is one of the main reasons people get the Collector's Edition.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't include it, just so that they could bring it out later on and charge people for it...

    Finally they did something for us that want to buy both the digital pre-purchase and the CE! Having to find a person to sell a key...was a weird solution! At least now I wont be buying the game twice every expansion

    Wha??? No artbook, no mousepad, no hard copy soundtrack??
    What is going on?!
    First you stop printing posters for CE, then quality of CE boxes itself became as one of the sh*tty CE boxes I've ever seen, now we've been cut to no artbook/soundtrack/mousepad...
    So what's inside then??
    Before there was a book, few cd cases with game and soundtrack, cards, pad - now it's two booklet, mark and... box? For a same price I guess?!

    I'm really pissed. Artbook, Soundtrack CD and Behind The Scenes stuff has been a standard since the WarCraft 3 CE in 200fucking2.

    Pre-ordered! My shelves are getting full of all these CE boxes... <.<
    Love the emblem as well!

    Yeah, definitely not getting the CE this time around. Sorry to say. No dedicated artbook, no physical CD, no behind-the-scenes DVD. Those are the reasons I buy these.

    On top of that, the price is hiked up an additional $10 over the Legion CE, probably because of the emblem that I don't care about.

    The illustrated hardcover novellas sound neat, but that's not enough to get me on board, especially since they'll be available digitally later.

    I'm a little disappointed about the artbook,cd, and mouse pad. The novellas and medallion is cool though.
