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.

      Tanks are getting a lot of focus in Shadowlands with the increased Mythic+ focus, and it's only going to get more intense with the next pach, so we rounded up some funny stories, depressing interactions, memes and similar. Here's a grab-bag of tanking experiences from many players.
      While all tanks are always needed, things change around the +15 mark, as it's not just DPS that have this particular experience, and if you're one of the least popular/worst specs...
      Then there's this type of terrible, which hasn't really changed that much since, well, forever, as there will always be assholes out there, but there really do seem to be more and more of them these days, especially in Mythic+...

      And even if you do well, it's never enough for some people:
      But, sometimes it's quite a different feeling, as however terrible players might be to you, you're still a tank damn it!
      And there are some perfect moments that can only come from tanking, including this one titled "My greatest M+ tanking Achievement...":

      If the group gets really annoying, you can always have the last word too:

      And finally, if you get REALLY tired of all the DPS not interrupting, the healer selfishly trying to keep those idiots that stand in every mechanic under the sun alive instead of keeping you above 80%, or people dare to question your route, you can always just go with your own kind!

      As 9.0.5 approaches, we wanted to take a look at just how many players were playing which specs in Mythic Castle Nathria before the patch changes hit. We made some charts for the Warcraft Logs numbers and will be doing them by role, starting with DPS. All of the stats below are based on the past 2 weeks of raids. 
      While we know what the biggest DPS performers are from our weekly check-ins with the Nathria logs, the actual number of players in the raid by spec are close, but look a little different. The most interesting/jarring fact of all on the DPS side is that 4 specs take up more than half of the entire Mythic population:

      Those last few stripes that are so tiny are Frost DK, Assassination, Demonology, Arcane and, of course Survival at the very end. Source: Warcraft Logs.
      The fact that Marksmanship, Fire, Balance and Affliction take up 51% of all DPS specs in Mythic Nathria is a little mind-boggling, especially since performance-wise, those specs don't really stand out that much (aside from Balance, who has reigned supreme for a long time now). Shadow is a particularly interesting case, as it's been at or near the top of the DPS rankings for a long time (it's currently in 3rd spot), and yet its numbers here are pretty low.
      Now let's take a look at the tanks and healers, as their numbers are even more distorted, with some extremely dominant specs. For tanks, Vengenance's domination won't surprise anyone, as it's been the go-to spec for basically all of Shadowlands:

      Source: Warcraft Logs.
      In comparison to the DPS role values, 2 tank specs hold 62% of the population, and 3 come up to 74%.
      We see an extremely similar situation for healers, with 2 specs holding 55%, with the bottom two barely breaking 15%.

      Source: Warcraft Logs.
      The biggest takeaway here is in the DPS department, where the numbers don't necessarily conform to the DPS rankings, although the specs that have been generally in the top for a longer time are more represented, as you'd imagine. The dominance of so few specs, however, is a little staggering, especially when looking at tanks and healers.  We can only hope 9.0.5 and its later hotfixes can address these specs, so perhaps some significant buffs would help there.
