So I'm waiting anxiously to finish my semester and was browsing the wow website and found out that for this expansion we cna purchase and play cataclysm without actually having to buy it at the store? (correct me if I'm wrong) But, my only concern to this is : I want to order it but it says that I must order it, log in once and finaly I'll be able to play on december 7th. My question my fellow SSers is do I have to absolutely log in once for this thing to work? Or can I just pre-order it and eventually when I finish school just log in, make it download, then play after the download is done?
yes you have to login, once you log in it flags your account to start downloading the Cataclysm content. I just did this last night and have cataclysm installed and ready to roll for tuesday.
But yes, the logging in part is required so your account becomes flagged for cata
im also not sure if you pre-order and wait how it works... It does how ever upgrade your account to cata once you pre-order so you might be able to just wait till after release.
I pre-ordered it do pre-orderers get something special for pre-ordering? I didnt see anything but didnt know if there was incentive to preordering except the fact you dont have to go to a gamestop at midnight? LOL _________________

From what I have heard, if you pre-order, you don't need to log in on the 7th, you can log in afterwards, whenever, and it will start downloading. But that kind of defeats the purpose of pre-order, so if you are going to wait a while before getting on, might as well get an actual copy from a store, that way if you ever need to reinstall it, you don't have to download everything.
As for anything special, not that I'm aware of, just the privilage of being able to play Cata, and the new races, at 12:01. _________________ Z
Oooh, ok, I see, bah, well, in that case I may aswell wait and buy it at the store since I wont be logging in before the 20th -ish. Cool, thanks guys! I appreciate it, wasnt very clear on the wow forums.
Its nice to hear from you guys, really cant wait to see you guys online and see how y'all are doing! I'm starting my final push of my semester! So keep seeking the storm (but dont find it without me! hehe) and I'll see you guys in a bit!
I hope to be on WoW by Christmas, with Cataclysm installed and my WoW subscription renewed ... I won't have the money for the character transfer until late January, unless a miracle happens. Anyways when I'm able to log on I'll log onto Nharaliek and say hi to everyone, and keep you all updated on my status. Oh yeah, do you guys even remember me? btw if you saw Nharaliek online in the 3-5 months that was not me, someone hacked my account, and got it banned so Blizzard is working on fixing that. I have a trial account, with a character named Keilya for anyone who wants to talk to me in game. _________________
