WoW Free to Play - Welcome Back Weekend November 5-8

This weekend, we're giving all players with inactive World of Warcraft accounts full access to the game* and all of your characters without a subscription. You’ll be able to access all expansions including Battle for Azeroth, so you can play the most recent content and be ready for Shadowlands when it launches on November 23, 2020 at 3 p.m. PST. Rejoin your guild, rally your comrades, and prepare to brave the beyond.

Return to World of Warcraft FREE from November 5 to November 8.**


Get Back in Action

If you’re new to World of Warcraft or you’ve been away for a while, you can play through the new starting experience starting at level 1 to learn the ropes.

Players who have already experienced Battle for Azeroth and reached level 50 on at least one character can choose to level any subsequent characters in a different expansion using Timewalking Campaigns. This new feature makes it so content from locations like Northrend or Pandaria scales to a player’s level, so they can adventure from level 10 all the way to 50 and experience the stories in these areas at their originally intended pacing. Visit Chromie near the embassies in Stormwind or Orgrimmar to select your expansion leveling experience. If you'd like to select a different expansion to level through, simply speak to Chromie again.

    It shouldn't invalidate it according to their own article. Since you aren't paying for any time and Blizzard it promo'ing it then it shouldn't count as no currency isn't be used in the transaction.

    I was wondering how many posts it would take for someone to say this is in some way negative and predatory of Blizzard.

    Turns out it was the 1st reply already.

    It's a free weekend for people to check out the game. If you see something wrong with that, you are really trying.

    If it can get new players to the game, or old people back, it should be a good thing.

    I mean it is greedy for them not to give 3 days to paying players but it is within their right to do nothing.

    As if someone could make "mad $$$" at the very end of the expansion anyway. Who would buy multiboxed herbs right now at high prices?
