How to Buy World of Warcraft

Buy World of Warcraft

Greetings Traveler!

 So you want to play World of Warcraft, hmmmm?

Well then, let’s get started, shall we?

* Note – this guide has been updated recently to reflect changes in the last expansion. It is much simpler and cheaper now to buy!

First, Some Requirements

To play World of Warcraft, you will first have to buy the World of Warcraft game, and you will also have to buy game time. Buying the game and its expansions is a one time deal – each expansion adds features to the game like extra races and classes to play, more questing areas to the world, and also increases the level cap. Game time is what allows you to continue to play and is bought in 30 day increments.

Buying the game includes 30 days of game time. If you buy it from Amazon
it includes all of the previous expansions which lets you go up to level 90 (the current max level is 100). It costs $20 or less – at the time of this writing, it’s going for $13 on Amazon.

After buying and installing the game, you will usually need to download some fairly large updates before ready it’s ready to play (let it download overnight if you have a slow connection). Afterwards, it will have you sign up for an account and activate your first game time card. If you want additional game time, 60 day game cards are available on Amazon.

The only expansion there is to buy is Warlords of Draenor Expansion which is also available on Amazon. This adds new areas and increases the level cap to 100. The expansion also includes is a free character boost to 90! Additional character boost cost $60 and can be bought in game.
