Get WoW on the cheap during Blizzard's Summer Sale

We're well into the cheerfully vacation-filled days of summer, which means it's the perfect time to stay indoors and play World of Warcraft... right? Well, if the Steam Summer Sale hasn't already attacked your wallet, Blizzard is getting in on the game with reduced-price copies of World of Warcraft and Mists of Pandaria. European gamers can pick up WoW for €7.50 of Mists for €10.00, while North American and Australian gamers can pick up WoW for $10.00 and Mists for $10.00.

This isn't the best pricing we've seen -- Blizzard's sale over the past holiday season brought WoW down to a very budget-friendly price of €5/$4.99 -- but the €7.50/$10 pricetag still isn't a bad way to pick up a Recruit a Friend mount. And if you don't have any friends who don't already play, you can always just recruit yourself for the same bonuses. Whee, new mounts!

World of Warcraft summer sale

World of Warcraft summer sale
The entire of World of Warcraft has gone on sale, and for once, the non-ironic use of the word "epic" is entirely justified. For this week only, you can get from naught to Mists of Pandaria for $30, or €30 or £25, depending on your local currency, and this is a pretty amazing deal when you consider the regular prices. As the EU store is still only handling digital goods, those will only be available in the EU as downloads. The US, however, can pick up the boxed versions for the same price, which is pretty remarkable.

Don't forget that the Battle Chest has included Wrath of the Lich King for some time, so you're not missing out there. This is a really, really cheap way to get yourself a character leveled with Recruit-a-Friend, and indeed to pick up an Obsidian Nightwing into the mix. Or, of course, get your friends involved in the game!

Save big on WoW this Black Friday

Image
Blizzard has posted a brief blog about some superb savings available to the would-be WoW purchaser on Black Friday. For those of us who aren't familiar with the US holiday season, that's this coming Friday, the one after Thanksgiving.

Blizzard
In celebration of Black Friday, goblin merchants are infiltrating select retail locations to unleash epic savings on World of Warcraft and its expansions. For a limited time, you can find the World of Warcraft: Battle Chest for $5, Cataclysm for $10, and Mists of Pandaria for $20-but only at the following retail chains:

GameStop
Amazon
Target
Best Buy
Fry's
Fred Meyer
Hasting's Entertainment

For now, these World of Warcraft Black Friday deals are available exclusively at retail, but if you're looking for even more epic savings online, be sure to hit up the Blizzard Store where you can save $20 each on Diablo III and StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty from now until November 26 at 11:59 p.m. PST.


So that's every WoW expansion so far for $35! Which, frankly, is pretty darn cheap. This would be great for recruiting a friend, for a gift for a loved one, or a friend, or just to get yourself a second account and an Obsidian Nightwing! Having read this blog post, if there aren't reports of actual goblin merchants, WoW Insider will be very disappointed.

Mists of Pandaria is here! The level cap has been raised to 90, many players have returned to Azeroth, and pet battles are taking the world by storm. Keep an eye out for all of the latest news, and check out our comprehensive guide to Mists of Pandaria for everything you'll ever need to know.

Insanely low prices for WoW, BC, and Wrath for a limited time

The Blizzard holiday sale for World of Warcraft in the US and EU regions has been announced, and the cost of giving WoW for the holidays is rock-bottom low. The original World of Warcraft, now with extra Shattering, is only $5. The Burning Crusade is now also only $5, and Wrath of the Lich King only sets you back $10.

To quickly recap -- the Blizzard US and EU stores now have:
World of Warcraft: Cataclysm will destroy Azeroth as we know it; nothing will be the same!

World of Warcraft no longer legally for sale in Australia

One of the major stories that is breaking today around the internet is the fact that in Australia a number of MMOs are no longer legally able to be sold. This is due to their lack of classification, things like M for Mature, PG, 18+, etc...

Our sister site Massively covered this extensively last week, and Tateru Nino's article on it has been picked up by the editors over at Slashdot. This is in particular interest to World of Warcraft folks in that WoW doesn't have a classification, and thus cannot be legally sold in Australia.

According to Tateru's research, the only two MMOs that are presently available for Australia are Vanguard: Saga of Heroes and EVE Online.

If someone was to sell WoW in Australia, they would face a possible penalty of AU$27,220.80 or two years in jail.
