World of Warcraft slashes Legion’s price ahead of 7.3 Shadows of Argus

Displaying a level of pomp and hype that is normally reserved for an MMO expansion or perhaps the impending visit from the Queen of England, World of Warcraft is going all-out with the release of this week’s Patch 7.3: Shadows of Argus.

Just take a look at this landing page for the patch and revel in the grand finale for the current expansion cycle. In addition to the flashy presentation, there’s a pretty good overview of what Shadows of Argus contains as well as videos and screenshots.

The patch begins its multi-stage rollout tomorrow, August 29th. If you’re feeling called to come back to the game because of it after, say, missing this entire expansion so far, the studio is prepared to make you a tempting offer. Legion’s price has been slashed down to $30 for the standard edition and $50 for the digital deluxe edition. And remember, both of those editions includes a level 100 character boost, which is normally $60 in the store.

And remember, both of those editions includes a level 100 character boost, which is normally $60 in the store.

I remember, and it’s part of why I am still unsubbed.

I tried it, gave it a fair shot but got a refund. Never done that with an mmo expansion before.

That landing page is fantastic. Love those colors. Great art piece. Gotta give Blizz kudos for their advertising design.

Or they simply have the ability to read a graph and realize they have hit their box sale saturation point and will get a boost from a price cut – proved by 12+ years of data.

Snarky remark, as usual.

so what’s the deal. If I pay $50 do I get all editions or do I need to buy each expansion separately? Interested because of the boost.

Do you also get a month of sub to actually play the game? Or is it still like it was in MoP, where you buy the Xpac and THEN you have to pay the sub fee to even play it.

I think both versions come with all previous expansions – at least that’s what they normally do – just the digital deluxe will come with some extra items like a pet and also some things for other Blizzard games. I think both come with the boost. My regular edition still came with the boost.

You would need to buy the base game which includes all expansions up to Legion, that would set you back $20 and then buy Legion for $30/$50 which would then mean you have all the content available.

And don’t forget you’ll need to start paying the subscription immediately…no more free ride the first month.
