Finally a new WoW battle chest!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: World of Warcraft - PC/Mac (DVD)
I'd been waiting for a while on an affordable, new WoW battle chest so that I could start a new account with the first month free. Previously, one would have to purchase the older original battle chest and several of the older expansions separately (Lich King, Cataclysm), which could total 30-40 dollars. Then another 20 dollars for Mists of Pandaria if desired. This set includes ALL the expansions except for Pandaria. A great boxed edition, for less than 20 bucks! It comes with 2 DVDs for installation and game key, a quickstart guide, two extra "guest passes" for WoW and Starcraft II (free play until level 20), AND best of all a surprisingly good 240 all-color page "Official Beginner's Guide" by Bradygames. So basically you get everything you need for WoW here, and you can purchase Pandaria separately if desired. The only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5-- It could have been even better if they simply included Pandaria as well, for a slightly higher price! At any rate this is a good buy, highly recommended for those new to WoW or looking to start a new account such as myself. And as mentioned the included guide is nice, MUCH better than what came with the old battle chest.

Thanks to Rob for providing insightful and informative product information - something Amazon failed to do with this product with it's anemic, lazy one line product description (really Amazon - have someone who actually knows what a MMORPG is review an MMORPG!)

Thanks for the review. I had no idea what the contents were. Amazon did a poor job with the description. I just bought this for $5 sale deal.

Pandaria is 19.99 right now leading up to draenor (probably for the rest of time). Personally I think offering both for 40, or in the case of buying on amazon, around 35 is excellent. I remember buying the battle chest before MoP for 20, then Wrath and Cata for a total of 60. Great way to bring new players in and then hook them for draenor with a 90 boost (although I don't know how the experience of a ton of green 90s running around aezeroth is going to be) this is an excellent buy for anyone looking to join in on all the fun!
