World of Warcraft: Shadowlands is available for pre-purchase digitally from the Blizzard Shop starting today, with three different options all designed with player preference in mind.

For more details check out our BlizzCon 2019 Content Hub!

The Base Edition of Shadowlands is available for $39.99 SRP, providing a new lower entry point compared to previous expansions. The Heroic Edition ($59.99) includes the expansion; a level-120 character boost; and the Ensorcelled Everwyrm mount, which provides access to a questline through which players can earn the Vestments of the Eternal Traveler transmogrification set.

The Epic Edition ($79.99) includes the Anima Wyrmling pet; the Wraithchill cosmetic weapon effect; the Eternal Traveler’s Hearthstone, designed with a unique visual effect; and 30 days of game time, in addition to all of the contents from the Heroic Edition.

All bonuses from the Heroic and Epic Editions are unlocked immediately upon pre-purchase. In addition, pre-purchasing any edition of World of Warcraft: Shadowlands will open the ability for players to create pandaren and allied race Death Knights once the Visions of N’Zoth content update for the current expansion, Battle for Azeroth™, arrives in the coming months.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong but didn't basic editions use to come with a boost?

This is the first time there's been three versions and the awesome option of paying less for the game and not getting a totally unneeded player boost.

Your "basic" version would be what's now called "heroic".

And here come the white knights defending predatory practices, soon enough we'll need spread sheets and flow charts to keep track of which edition gives us what. Don't believe me? It's already happened with other games.

lol, its not white knighting... There has never been a $39.99 option before, previously (Legion) it was $59.99 for the standard edition game and $79.99 for the collectors edition. So now you are paying the SAME price for the "heroic" as the old "SE" but now you get a mount without having to get the "collectors" version, and now with a cheaper option if you dont want all the flashy crap that comes with the original price. You seem like the type of guy that just looks for something to complain about...

Along with what Trueking said, you do't need a spreadsheet, that was just a joke about anthem due to the differing release dates. Personally, I'm happy there's a cheaper version, since imo the mount is ugly af, and since I have all classes at 120 on ally, a boost would be a waste. Rather save £15 and just get the expac. 

Side note, as someone with 2 accounts, I could get the heroic / epic for the main account, and again, save £15/£35 for my alt account.

Idk what I'd even use a boost on at this point

I've always just used them as a race change option, or to have at least one higher level char on Alliance.

      Old Karazhan gear from Legion can be converted to Sepulcher mogs on live servers using the Creation Catalyst.
      Reddit user VeryLosh discovered that it's possible to convert old Karazhan gear (item level 50) into Sepulcher transmogs via the Creation Catalyst. I believe it will also work with old Grimrail Depot gear.
      The player used Wrap of the Fixed Stars (item level 50 back) and converted it using 600 Cosmic Flux into Cloak of Sweltering Flame. The item level was still 50 after the conversion and this method is only useful if you have old Karazhan gear from Legion in your bank. You can watch the whole conversion process below.

      Quest givers are visible through walls on the Dragonflight Alpha.
      Content creator MrGM discovered that NPCs that offer you quests are visible through walls in Dragonflight. The change is most likely intended and we do not know if you can turn it off, at this time.

      Here we are in the very first week of Shadowlands Season 4 and it's time to see how things have changed since the patch! It's been a bit of a rough start for certain specs, as the bosses in Castle Nathria had some serious bugs, taking away a lot of DPS abilities. The bug was fixed after a couple of days, so the rest of the stats should be solid, but do keep in mind that there were issues in the beginning.

      An important note before we begin: as the Fated raids will be switching out each week, our comparisons to the previous weeks will be a little less relevant, but we'll still mention it for context - just keep in mind it won't be a direct comparison from week to week as it was before.
      Mythic
      95th Percentile
      We have a bit of a surprise a the very top of the top percentiles, inasmuch as nothing has changed, even after the Destruction nerf! Well, not exactly nothing, as while the top spec is still Destro, it has lost a very large amount of its lead, with Demonology breathing down its neck. We also know it takes a while for the meta to shift, even after nerfs, so we may yet see a new No.1 next week, in the Sanctum. Speaking of nerfs, Survival's did hit it fairly hard, as it fell from its 2nd place down to 5th, with Elemental leaping up 5 spots to claim 3rd. But perhaps the biggest change from Season 3 and the Sepulcher to today and Fated Nathria is Outlaw, as it skyrocketed 11 places into 4th! Frost DK and Windwalker also had to make room for the new kids in town, both dropping 3, and the Mages seem to have formed a union and taken over 8-10. Unfortunately for Subtletly though, neither the Season nor the new raid changed its lot in life, as it remains down at the very bottom, this time joined by a very unhappy Havoc, who dropped 7.

      95th percentile Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      All Percentiles
      The generalist bracket did get a new No.1 at least, as there's been a Warlock switcheroo and Demonology has claimed the top spot. Destro didn't go far, but the even bigger star here is Outlaw, as it outperforms all non-purple specs in the generalist bracket, pushing past Survival. Elemental is doing well here as well, with Windwalkers and Frost DKs dropping 3 spots, same as in the top bracket. Affliction makes an appearance as well, putting all 3 Warlocks in the top 10. Meanwhile Mages aren't doing quite so well here, as only Fire makes it in among the 10 best. We also have two Rogues down at the bottom, with Subtletly actually dropping down from last week, and again finding itself in the very last spot, joined by Assassination, which dropped even more, from the middle of the pack to the penultimate spot.

      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Tanks and Healers
      Quite expectedly, there aren't many changes with the tanks and healers, but we're taking a look anyway since it's the first week of a new patch/season. The tank DPS meters aren't quite as relevant as the healers' HPS ones, but either way the rankings for the front-liners are exactly the same as we last left them, with Guardian on top and Vengeance on the bottom.
      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Healers at least had some movement, as Resto Shamans moved on up 1 space into 3rd, and Holy Paladins also moved, out of the gutter, pushing Discipline down into the last spot.

      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Heroic
      Heroic had some changes as well, with Arms finally losing the battle with Demo, dropping quite a bit in fact, down into 6th from the top position. Outlaw showed that it's doing great in all brackets, getting as high as No.2 here, followed by Survival and a very much improved Fire, which leaped 7 spots to land in 4th. Shadow is also on the rise, only 2 spots, however, as Enhancement joined Arms in their downfall, with Unholy taking the DK crown here. We then have a really weird sighting, as Beast Mastery somehow managed to make its way into 9th, followed by Balance, which dropped 4 spots. Subtletly took the bottom spot trifecta, joined by Fury.
