I haven't played in almost a year, but Blizzard sent me a offer to let me activate my account for 7 days and I think I might take them up on that.
I've played all the expansions but once I got a couple of character to 80 I got pretty bored and I also would like to graduate from college at some point and spending too much time on WoW wouldn't help that.
See, the problem I have is the Wrath of the Lich King is still $39.99. The new expansion comes out on Dec. 7th. I would be dropping $100 to play if I start now.
Wait, I was able to merge my old account into my current battle.net account and when I went to upgrade, it gave an option to upgrade both Cataclysm pre-order and Lich King for only $67.99 (15% off) bundle package. It would upgrade me to Lich King now and then Cataclysm on Dec. 7th.
That's actually not that bad. I would only be paying $28 bucks for it, but oh well. I may pull the trigger on this because Thanksgiving week I'll have a 4 day weekend and could get some leveling done. Then I'm off the entire week of Christmas and the Monday after, so I would get some leveling done then.
Of course, it never works out quite the way I want it too.....
This is weird. I put in Burning Crusade to install before I go to upgrade to Lich King. When I put in the disc, it said play WoW, so it was already installed. When I purchased the Lich King/Cataclysm upgrade after the purchase it said you log into the game and it will install Burning Crusade and Cataclysm on Dec. 7th.
I go to my account page and it says that I have WoW standard, Burning Crusade, Wrath of the lich king and pre-order Cataclysm active on my account. When I start playing the installer is installing Burning Crusade.
WTF is going on? I better not get ripped off and not get the Lich King upgrade or heads will ****ing roll.
I assume since its been May 2008 since the account was active, that it's having to patch the Burning Crusade content, then will install Lich King. Does anyone agree with that assumption?

Ixcuincle, I finally am coming back. What server do you play on again? Also, which is the best PvP server right now?
If you wonder about it, call them. I'd put even money on them offering a you a deal if you said something along the lines of "I played a while back, and I want to get back into it. I just don't want to have to pay $100 for each expansion when the last one will be out of date next week asking me to buy another one. Is there a deal you can get me? I mean I don't mind the $15 per month, but that up front is killing me."
Seriously, what do you (or they for that matter) have to lose. If they have a smart manager, they would give you the back versions in exchange for a pre-purchase of Cat and a 3 month prepay...At that point they really aren't out anything as the marginal costs of another player has to be next to nothing but they have presold the new version and tied another customer for another 3 months. Win win...I think...but who knows if the person who answers the phone or the person who trains them or their supervisor thinks in these terms.
I believe my job as a parent is to give my kids all the blocks they need to build a life in which they can attempt to reach everything they strive for and see anything they can imagine. In a world where everybody finds it easier to destroy than build, I wish for my kids to experience the joy of seeing something for the first time and the love of creating something new.
If you guys are interested, come join me on Stormreaver and whatnot. It's a fun server filled with ADULTS (on horde side.... allies are pretty young) and horde always wins, so that's a plus.
There are a few pre-Cata events out now that are interesting, I guess... a little boring but eh, whatever. I'm excited for the new expansion.
I'm pretty sure BC got patched a ****load since I last played it, so it would be understandable if its gotta patch that before the LK installation.

Does anyone know the phone number for customer support? I'm looking everywhere on the Account Management page and of course, can't find it.
