    Yes. From Classic until Cataclysm.

    Mists of Pandaria was the first expansion with a Digital Deluxe. Therefore, this mount and pet were only 15 euros on top of the normal expansion price until WoD launched. All expansions from WoD until now have had their digital deluxe become separate bundles that can still be bought today.

    And at a discount too!

    I really hope they're gonna add back Tyraels Charger, which was a reward for the Annual Pass back in Cata.

    Are you for real?! First of all, you could buy a digital deluxe edition for 15€ more to get these rewards (all of whom are still available except for the MoP one) and second of all, are you seriously buying CE's just for the mount (which became a thing only since MoP) and pet?

    No the last real CE that came out was the BfA one

We're also late in the final patch of the expansion and everything you're grinding for will literally be tossed in the trash by the prepatch for shadowlands.

    Better recommendation, wait for shadowlands and see if it is well received by the players before buying it.
    Thought the same, but it's not really like that actually.

    While I do agree that BfA is kinda the worst expansion they've (or maybe it's WoD) and the leveling experience for new players is just horrible (you have to level through 110 levels of outdated/old content to actually "start" playing the expansion OR you boost your character, which is gonna suck for a new player who won't know anything about the game), HOWEVER my cousin randomly decided to buy WoW a few days ago and we're actually having a lot of fun; we're 120 already.

    I cannot overstate how much I hate that they bring back Collector's/Ultimate edition crap to bank on some FOMO. I'd rather they have discounts on character services.

    And that one didn't give a mount.

    Lying about that would be suicide, so yeah. If they say so, it is so.

    probably smoking the remnants of his class that was great until it wasn't.

    the first expansion pre-patch I played (pre-wrath patch) it became clear that virtually everything you knew about a spec could change overnight. for better or worse. fortunately I had fury warrior at 50 at this point and a ret paladin at max level who was leveled because I felt he should have been as powerful as he became with that patch. meanwhile feral (my main) was complicated by the guardian/feral split and I decided I'd just level every class so I could always drop one when it went to shit rather than be stuck with it and also play whatever happened to be the fotm to help make up for the shortcomings of the others.

    granted this hasn't really allowed for much endgame progress but it was always a sacrifice I was uneasy making to raid anyway.

    We got Level Boost, so why not? Just means not starting from scratch [Rep, Collections, Quest progression, Character specific achievements, etc.]

    I very much would have waited on the shadowlands one / may not have ever bought it if it weren't for the transmog set that I could have apparently got without buying it and also had to wait weeks to actually get.

    yeah having a friend to play with would help a lot, means I should try to link up a couple of them to maybe do it together. But the other issues still remain and have shot down some that i've asked. I've even got a friend who basically just does leveling and questing on 30+ characters every xpac but he's burnt out on bfa as well.

    Can't believe some of the CE mounts/pets are available.

    I miss Warcraft having CE with real items in them. I just recently had to retire my WoD mousepad.

    The BFA CE was total garbage. Digital soundtrack download and no CD in the BFA... ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME?

    Does standard edition come with a boost?

    Thanks Blizzard but no thanks. Got Flat out 2 on steam for 2$ and Half Life 2 for 2$ as well (promo until 9th of July). Way more content and replayability there compared to spending real $ on pets/mounts (especially when there are 500 of them). I could make a case for earlier expansions when everyone was riding a generic horse/dragon/gryphon but this is not worth it at all.
