World of Warcraft is a titan of the gaming industry. It has been on the market for more than 20 years and is still popular today. It has its advantages but one may notice that the monetization type of the game is a bit old. To play World of Warcraft you will need to purchase WoW Subscription in addition to the game. That covers much of the expenses including servers maintenance and support department. But as a player, you don’t need such details so we will just explain to you how WoW subscription works.
What you get with WoW subscription
If you want to play World of Warcraft you will need to buy the game and activate your subscription. But one may wonder what is included in WoW subscription. Others may wonder if they need to purchase WoW Classic subscription separately. So let’s clear this out World of Warcraft subscription includes access to:
- World of Warcraft (latest patch)
- Burning Crusade Classic
- WoW Classic
But remember that those are different types of the game. You will have one account for all of them and one World of Warcraft subscription cost. But the created character remains on the related server and you can transfer from WoW Classic to Burning Crusade Classic for the extra cost.
WoW subscription cost
When you buy WoW subscription you will see that the World of Warcraft monthly fee changes if you pick the option with more months of playtime. So WoW subscription price depends on the duration you choose to activate. The more months you purchase the more you save up. Moreover, in addition to World of Warcraft subscription, you can get extra rewards for buying more months of playtime. Those are usually thematical including awesome mounts and cosmetics designed specifically for those who buy 6-moths of service. So World of Warcraft subscription price is:
- 1 month – $14.99
- 3 months – $41.97 (which is $13.99 per month and you save 6% or $12 per year)
- 6 months – $77.94 (which is $12.99 per month and you save 13% or $24 per year)
All subscriptions can be cancelled online anytime from your Battle.net account. As you can see your WoW monthly fee changes if you buy more months of service, and it will be billed the day your current subscription ends. So if you decide to buy it monthly you will be billed monthly without any discounts.
WoW 6-months subscription special offer
This is the maximum duration that you can get in one purchase. But in addition to the mentioned discount, you will also get special bonuses. Those bonuses change from time to time we will describe those that come during World of Warcraft: Shadowlands. Most of them are for Hearthstone and WoW:
- The Sapphire Skyblazer mount in World of Warcraft
- Tavern Pass & Battlegrounds Perks in Hearthstone:
- experience boosts
- a Diamond Legendary minion
- 13 cosmetic hero skins
- then get similar goodies during the next expansion cycle with that set’s Tavern Pass as well
- in Battlegrounds, get advanced stats, emotes, and the choice between 4 heroes with Battleground Perks through both expansions
- 15 packs from Hearthstone’s latest expansion, United in Stormwind
- in December, receive an additional 15 packs from Hearthstone’s next expansion when it launches! Hearthstone packs include 5 cards, at least one of which is rare or better
- 15 Mercenaries Packs, available as soon as the mode launches and 15 more packs in December
- include 5 Mercenaries items, which can include Mercenaries, Mercenary Coins, and Cosmetic Skins, one of which will be rare or better
- The Imp in a Ball toy in WoW
- Once you purchase the 6-month subscription, redeem your Imp in a Ball toy by accepting a special quest from Innkeepers in all capital cities, as well as Landro Longshot in Booty Bay. The quest is available for all World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade Classic characters attached to a single regional Battle.net account.
It is obvious but we will highlight that you will need to buy WoW and WoW: Shadowlands first and only then purchase a subscription. If you haven’t got it yet Shadowlands price is $39.99 for the base. Other editions cost more and have bonuses, but only epic edition has 30 days of game time and this edition of WoW Shadowlands price is $79.99. It might be wise to wait for the next sale to buy it.
