Summary: There is no need to purchase this expansion set. Blizzard has already built this module into the full basic online game. Of course, you won't find that out until you try to plug the number into the website.
The beginning of the end, is the end of the beginning.

Summary: Call me Ishmael. Some years ago - never mind how long precisely - having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me on shore, I thought I would sail about a little and see the watery part of the world. It is a way I have of driving off the spleen, and regulating the circulation.
Summary: -=-=-=-=-=-=-PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE THIS ITEM!!!-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- I recently bought the entire WoW suite through Amazon only to find that the Burning Crusade discs and keys are no longer needed. When you purchase the original game, the key for it works as though it was the "Battle Chest" Edition. Burning Crusade now comes with the original game at NO EXTRA COST!
Summary: Blizzard has comped everyone that has the standard WOW and given us Burning Crusade as of July 1, 2011. Wish I had known this as I ordered this on 06/28/11, and just spent 30 minutes waiting to find out why I couldn't install it. Call Blizzard if you bought this and haven't installed it. They will give you the cost back as Amazon should not have to eat this. Good Luck!
Summary: This retail copy of Burning Crusade expansion pack is not necessary. I found out the hard way. After several failed attempts to install from the CDs (which took hours on my computer)it turned out this version is not compatible with the game environment already loaded in my system. I ended up simply entering the product key from the CDs on the Blizzard web site and downloaded from there. I was up and running in less than half an hour.
Summary: Just to let newcomers to World of Warcraft know you no longer need to buy the Burning Crusade expansion pack as now it is included "Free" with any and all retail and downloaded copies of World of Warcraft so there is no need to buy this expansion and honestly Blizzard should just pull it from the market since it is now free :-p.
