‘World Of Warcraft’ And The Current Expansion ‘Warlords Of Draenor’ Deeply Discounted In The Blizzard Store

Thanksgiving week is a great week to find decent sales on nearly anything a person could want. Many sales are already underway, and players looking for gaming deals are not left behind either. World of Warcraft players are still enjoying all the news surrounding the upcoming expansion, but some may still lack the latest expansion. Perhaps, an existing player is looking to refer a friend, or themselves, for the recruitment bonuses. Either way, Blizzard Entertainment is ready to provide this week with a 75 percent off sale.

Specifically, World of Warcraft is just $4.99, usually $19.99, and it includes all the current expansions except for Warlords of Draenor. That expansion is just $12.49 right now, and it still includes the level 90 character boost. The big sale, announced on the official website, is available right now. Warlords of Draenor is normally $49.99 and boosts sold separately are $60, although the boosts sold separately now level a character to level 100. Both can be picked up directly from Blizzard Entertainment, via the official storefront.

Warlords of Draenor extends the base game’s level cap from 90 to 100, introduces garrisons, adds new dungeons, adds a couple of new raids, and much more. The expansion ushered in new character models for player characters, Twitter integration, and eventually reintroduced Valor to the game. The last raid boss for Warlords of Draenor is already available and the last major patch, 6.2.3, for the expansion just released last week as seen on Battle.net. That 6.2.3 patch added a few new goals for players including a mouse mount for defeating the expansion’s last raid boss on Heroic or higher difficulty.

Any weird server issues that often accompany an expansion launch are long gone, players have clear goals to reach without worrying about what comes next, and queues for older content from the current expansion may be longer but that content is often easier to complete.

With the release of Legion scheduled for summer, 2016, players have plenty of time to leisurely explore Warlords of Draenor and complete any goals they see fit before the release of the next expansion. Legion will raise the level cap to 110, introduce the Demon Hunter hero class, give each specialization from each class its very own artifact weapon, let players visit their class order hall, and welcome a completely revamped transmogrification system.

In fact, the new system will let players clear out their banks and bags because items used only for transmogrification will be saved to a collection tab in the UI. Not to mention, as the Inquisitr reported, rewards from previously completed quests will be automatically included in a player’s collection, and players will be able to hide their shoulders and helms independently on each costume. Tabards, shirts, and weapon enchants are also being integrated into the transmogrification system in Legion.

Indeed, Mists of Pandaria became part of the base game on October 14 officially, according to Battle.net, just a month before the release of Warlords of Draenor.

With Legion expected to release “on or before September 21,” players may see Warlords of Draenor added to the base World of Warcraft purchase shortly before its release. However, if you are looking to play Warlords of Draenor content right now, it probably will not get much cheaper and easier to obtain than for $12.49 from the official Blizzard store.

Is the price right for a Warlords of Draenor purchase?
