Will the Warlords of Draenor release date

Warlords of Draenor release date hasn’t been officially announced yet, but we’ve got a whole stack of clues. Blizzard had already said it would release this fall. Now that official preorders are open, we also know that the game will release “on or before December 20, 2014.”

The Warlords of Draenor release date ambiguity isn’t terribly surprising.That’s because, this year, World of Warcraft celebrates the tenth anniversary of its original release on November 23, 2004. That’s a Sunday, not Blizzard’s traditional game release date, but for such a seminal anniversary they will probably make an exception, at least for digital downloadery. Besides, that gives them a full extra month of exposure to holiday sales, which matter even for a game like World of Warcraft. Launching before Black Friday and the holiday shopping season will help immensely, assuming they can finish the game in time.

In addition to the loose release date window, Blizzard announced the Warlords of Draenor Digital Deluxe Edition bonuses, which are, in a word, garbage. The regular version costs $49.99, already pretty steep. The Digital Deluxe Edition jacks that up to $69.99 and includes a Dread Raven flying mount and Dread Hatchling pet for WoW… and the flying mount is theoretically cool, but really, it’s not a major draw. It also comes with two new portraits for StarCraft II and a Grimpola Warsong pennant for Diablo III.

The new World of Warcraft expansion updates all the character models in the gameand Blizzard has been revealing the Warlords of Draenor new graphics slowly.

Will the Warlords of Draenor release date be November 23, 2014, the game’s tenth anniversary? Let me know what you think below.

People would just buy WOW power leveling

It wasn’t a surprise to learn that Blizzard would be selling an identical boost via WoW’s in-game store, but the price turned heads: $60.

As for the price, Blizzard knew people would just buy WOW power leveling account and transfer the free level 90 over, so the $60 price tag while it seems arbitrary, it removes the need to dick about with people making new accounts and transferring over chars to do it causing bloat in the database.

But then if they had sold it for $10 or $20 nearly everyone would of used it as why play all the old content when you can jump past it all for next to nothing. so it would increase the number of people taking it up so the lower price point would probably get them more money on the long run.

Where with the $60 price tag it will make people actually think about it before going for it, meaning it will probably be relegated to people who are desperate to change class for example to fill a gap in a raid group or the people with more money than sense.

But in the long run the $60 price tag will discourage a lot of people and the people who aren’t discouraged by it would have only done it with a second account anyway and in reality blizz could of made more money by forcing people to buy a second account up to WoD for the free level 90 then transferring it over to the old account.

So I do think they have found a reasonable balance as a lot of people complaining about the price are saying it is too expensive and if anything that just shows it is working to limit the amount of people using it as they are actually having to think about the price.
