Rumor: Datamining hints that World of Warcraft’s Battle for Azeroth preorders are close

This has less dramatic impact than hoped.

Reddit and Twitter are buzzing today with another round of World of Warcraft datamining – this one from WoWhead, which has dug up new interface elements patched in during today’s maintenance. The important bit is a store UI element called BoostPopupBFA – presumably, the requisite Battle for Azeroth character level booster. And if that’s live today, it can mean only one thing: Expansion preorders will also go live today.

Orrrrrr maybe they’re just being overly prepared for when it does happen.

Reddit is speculating that the preorders may go live today during the Q&A with Game Director Ion Hazzikostas, which is set for 3 p.m. EST today on Twitch. Guess we’ll see!

Still wondering when the game will launch? Join in our own speculation, which still puts good money on late autumn.

There’s more to the mining, by the by, but it’s much more spoilery. You’ve been warned!

But it might take a while to pre-order:
You are 2,303rd in line.
Estimated wait time: 1 day.

Due to high demand, you’ve been placed in an automated queue. Just hang tight and this page (don’t close it!) will automatically send you to checkout once it’s your turn.

If it lines up with historical timelines for past expansions, it will launch in October.

I think it’s possible for them to release it before summer otherwise the content drought will be brutal once again.

Leveling new Allied Race alts will help with that, for some.

Cool. Am waiting to see what’s what. Wanna do a group level with hubs and kids when the allied races go live. Can’t wait :)

It’s hard to get too excited about BfA when I still have TBC and a bunch of other acronyms to get through first.

Boy if time flies… there used to be a time when I’d be glued to the screen waiting for whatever inanities would come from the event. Right now, I’ll be off to take a nap and wait for a TLDR sometime tomorrow… if that.

Wake me up if they announce housing, though.

Hazzikostas is still in charge? No thanks. Plus I’ll never preorder from Blizz again after the Warlords flying bait and switch. Plus got an extra $10 I thought it’s have more content that MoP but it had way less.
