A long, long time ago I booted up World of Warcraft for the first time and gave it a try. Unlike millions of others in my position, I did not stay past the first 20 or so levels. So these discounts aren’t exactly for people like me to try and get back into Blizzard’s genre defying MMO. Instead, they’re for people still a bit behind on some key expansions.
Warlords of Draenor is coming out in just a few weeks, making it the perfect time for past WoW addicts to hip aboard again and try get up to speed. The upcoming expansion does look pretty great, especially when help up against some of the more recent expansions Blizzard has let loose. Still, every expansion is crucial (most of the time) to the WoW experience, and there’s not much time to catch up.
Hell, what if you don’t even own the damn things? Blizzard has you covered. On the Battle.Net store you’ll be able to find the first three WoW expansions bundled together for $19.99. Mists of Pandaria isn’t there since all subscribers were gifted the content for free a few weeks ago. The Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King and Cataclysm can all be yours for a greatly reduced fee, just in time for the new expansion.
World of Warcraft has been steadily losing subscribers of the last few months, but the weeks leading up to Warlords of Draenor have actually lead to a bit of a surge in returning players. Could this be the kick in the rear that the MMO needs?
