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.
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: This item is a must have for serious World of Warcraft players. Your casual player, however, will find everything he/she needs in the regular edition of the game. For those of you who love bonus material, this is a fantastic collector piece. Included in this Edition comes: -The standard game DVDs with activation code -A 208 page book containing art, sketches and cinematic stills -A deck of WOW playing cards -A mousepad -Original music soundtrack -Behind the scenes DVD
Summary: i love these world of warcraft collector's editions. i own all but the first one and i love the way they all look together on the shelf. like all the collector's editions before it this one is loaded with extras to sink your teeth into. the art book features work directly from the cataclysm expansion, the soundtrack is one of the best i have heard from a warcraft game and the lil deathwing pet is always a nice little cosmetic to add to your avatar.
Summary: If you like WoW at all any Collector's Edition ia worth having. Not just because of the pet, but because of the sheer value of the contents of the CE themselves. Each one has behind the scenes information and you can find other goodies from TCG, soundtracks, mousepads, etc. In them.
