Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: World of Warcraft Battle Chest - (Obsolete) (DVD-ROM)
I received my copy today and here is what was in the box:
1 - Bradygames World of WarCraft Beginners Guide (A 256 page (7.25"x9.128") printed book - at first glance it looks useful.)
1 - Set of 2 disks - the box says WIN/MAC
1 - QuickStart Guide (A 17 page (4.5"x6.5") booklet - there is only 10 pages of actual content)
2 - World of WarCraft Guest Passes (The pass says "Enjoy World of Warcraft FREE up to level 20." There is no mention of a time limit, but I would suspect their standard 2 week limit would apply.)
1 - StarCraft Guess Pass (It mentions being able to play StarCraft II free up to the fourth mission.)
The Battle Chest outer box states "First month of play included." (I just entered the authorization code on my battlenet account and did receive 30 days.)
Oh, and my battlenet account lists my product level as:
World of Warcraft - Standard Edition
The Burning Crusade - Standard Edition
Wrath of the Lich Kink - Standard Edition
This all came from the Battle Chest authorization code.

World of Warcraft is free through level 20. However, there is no time limit - you can play for as long as you want. Additionally, purchase of this product is not necessary to play through level 20. The portion of WOW that you can play for free is downloadable (also, for free) from the World of Warcraft website. If you want to go beyond level 20, then you must purchase the software and begin paying the 15 dollar/month subscription fee.

And, if you ever do pay for the game you CANNOT go back to playing the trial version on that account- even if all your characters are under level 20.

Hi i have a doubt about this. When you buy this pack, the installation setup comes with the option to choose the language? Because i'm from latinoamerica and i want to know if i can play in latin servers in spanish with this box!

note however that you can have 2 sub-accounts of a same primary account: say 1 legit payed and 1 trial - the WoW recognizes them as WoW1 and WoW2.
If you ever stop paying for your primary account, you can still always log in into your trial account - like I do it now.

The game locked me out after thirty days? Any ideas how to get back to the starter edition?
