And Amazon, you better post this. People need to make informed choices as to where their personal information regarding this game get's sent.
My only complaint is that I occasionally find glitches within the game. For instance, i'll have a quest that tells me to speak to certain non-player characters, but when I click on them, nothing happens. It doesn't trigger the response that it should. This doesn't happen often but it has happened on three different occasions. After doing an internet search, I found forum posts from MANY years ago, about these very glitches. These are known issues that Blizzard was made aware of, but never fully corrected. That sucks.
Aside from that, I have no complaints - especially at this price point. You get every expansion made, except Draenor, and Legion (which isn't due out until September 2016). This one purchase will allow you to get to level 90. If you purchase Draenor (sold separately), you'll be able to reach level 100, AND get a FREE booster. Basically, you can automatically boost one of your characters to level 90, even if you JUST created it. If you pre-order Legion, you'll be able to level up to 110, once it comes out. For now though, all you need is this first pack.
There's one important thing to note about World of Warcraft. Even if you have all of the expansions, there are still additional costs. Many are optional but one is not, and that's the monthly subscription costs. So, in addition to your purchase of the expansion packs, you also pay a fee for game time. This varies, depending on whether you pay month to month, or prepay for several months in advance.
The biggest recommendation I can give, is for you to read the enclosed beginners guide. My friends all laughed at me for reading it (they've been playing for years so they know this stuff inside and out), but it was super helpful. It explained things that I wasn't quite grasping and has made my game play that much more enjoyable.
The Disc 1 had an activation code on it, which is the whole reason I bought this. I went on the Blizzard Client, redeemed the code, and owned WoW up to the Legion Expansion.
Since I have never played WoW before, it also gave me 30 days of game time, which I was hoping for. And now I am able to play Classic.
The game is very streamlined. It's a great way to lose several hours of your life at a time. The progression to new equipment and new skills can be satisfying. For me, the simplification of the game has taken a lot of the reward from it. There's very little sense of exploration until you get out of starter zones (to keep you from dying), and from there it can be fun to team up with a friend and run around the countryside. If you're into raiding and top tier loot, you'll also need to invest in the Mists of Pandaria expansion.
For me, the monthly fee is a little much for something that from time to time feels more like work than play. The game mechanics are not interesting enough, and while the story is an interesting diversion, if you try reading journal entries while questing with others, you'll get left behind.
