Isn't BC just included with Vanilla now? I have a trial account that I just use to form raids with myself, and even on that account I can roll Draenei and Blood Elves - and that's not even a full retail account. My point is, the Battle Chest isn't really a value add compared to just buying the "brown box". It does come with strategy guides, but those are hilariously out of date at this point. If you check Gamestop's website, "brown box" and the battle chest are both listed at the same price, $19.99, so getting it for $9.99 instead is definatley a deal, but calling it the "Battle Chest including Burning Crusade" is kind of overselling its value.Source: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/blog/2993674

Technically Blizzard is calling this the "digital Battle Chest"

What Blizzard calls the product they sell in their digital store is kind of beside the point, I was talking about the physical product that GameStop is selling in their stores. If you were to just buy the physical brown box you're effectively getting all of the contents of the "digital Battle Chest".

This is not entirely correct. The Brady guide in the current Battlechest on the shelf in Walmart that I bought a few days ago has information, maps, art, and zone listings that include Cataclysm. It does not cover the newer classes and races in depth because that's not what the Battlechest includes.
