We have seen some questions about how upgrades will work for the different versions of Shadowlands. While the process is similar to the last expansion, we want to take a moment to clarify how upgrades will work for some of the most common situations.

Upgrading from Any Digital Version to Collector’s Edition

If you purchase any digital copy of Shadowlands (Base, Heroic, or Epic), and then upgrade to the Collector’s Edition in the future, we will automatically credit you the cost of the digital copy in Blizzard Balance - as long as you enter the Collector’s Edition key before a future deadline. When you enter the key from your Collector’s Edition, we will see the original transaction on your account and the credit will be added. We will have details on this deadline when we have more information to share regarding the Collector’s Edition.

Upgrading from Base Edition to Heroic or Epic Edition then to Collector’s Edition

If you purchase the Base Edition of Shadowlands, then upgrade to the Heroic or Epic Edition, and THEN upgrade to the Collector’s Edition, you Blizzard Balance will be the price you paid for the original Base Edition.

Upgrading from Heroic to Epic Edition then to Collector’s Edition

If you purchase the Heroic Edition of Shadowlands, then upgrade to the Epic Edition, and THEN upgrade to the Collector’s Edition, you Blizzard Balance will be the price you paid for the original Heroic Edition.

Upgrading from Base Edition to Heroic or Epic Edition

If you purchase the Base Edition of Shadowlands, you will be able to upgrade to the Heroic or Epic Edition for the difference in cost between the versions.

      Blizzard added two vendors selling item level 252 gear to Stormwind and Orgrimmar. The catch-up gear is most likely tied to the Dragonflight pre-patch event.
      The vendors are Storm Hunter William (Alliance) found in Stormwind and Storm Huntress Suhrakka (Horde) found in Orgrimmar.

      A new currency called Primeval Essence is required to purchase gear. We do not know at this time how to earn it. Based on previous pre-patch events, it should be relatively easy to farm.

      How Much Primeval Essence Does the Dragonflight Catch-Up Gear Cost?
      The gear you buy with Primeval Essence isn't BoA, and the prices vary depending on the armor slot. The prices are currently as follows:
      One-Hand weapons cost 25 Primeval Essence. Two-Hand weapons cost 45 Primeval Essence. Shields / Off-Hands cost 25 Primeval Essence. Chest/Head/Legs cost 45 Primeval Essence. Shoulders/Feet/Gloves cost 35 Primeval Essence. Back/Wrists/Trinkets/Rings cost 25 Primeval Essence.

      In our latest post, we go through a list of things to do before Dragonflight goes live.
      Dragonflight launches on or before December 31, 2022. The mounts listed here will still be obtainable in the Dragonflight pre-patch that will hit live servers a few weeks before the expansion.
      Complete Ahead of the Curve: The Jailer
      Fractal Cypher of the Carcinized Zerethsteed will be removed with Dragonflight. Until then, the mount guaranteed upon defeating the Jailer on Heroic difficulty and above. The Jailer drops a quest item (Almanac's Echo) that you turn in for the mount.

      Carcinized Zerethsteed
      Defeat Sylvanas Windrunner on Mythic Difficulty
      Defeating Sylvanas Windrunner in the Sanctum of Domination raid on Mythic difficulty yields Vengeance's Reins. The mount will have a drop chance close to 1% when Dragonflight launches.

      Vengeance's Reins
      Defeat the Jailer on Mythic Difficulty
      Likewise, if you haven't obtained the mount from Mythic Jailer yet, you still have plenty of time to do so before the drop rate is reduced to a measly 1% with the opening of the first Dragonflight raid tier.

      Zereth Overseer
      Earn Keystone Master in Shadowlands Season 4
      The mount tied to Season 4 is Restoration Deathwalker and requires a Mythic+ Rating of at least 2,000. It's going away when Season 4 ends.

      Restoration Deathwalker
      Earn the Gladiator Title and Mount
      Eternal Gladiator's Soul Eater and the title are going away with the end of PvP Season 4. You must win 50 3v3 games while at Elite rank during Shadowlands Season 4 to earn both.

      Eternal Gladiator's Soul Eater (the wings are not rendered correctly in the model viewer).
      Season 4 Dungeon Teleports
      Dungeons from previous expansions were added to the Mythic+ pool in Season 4 and completing them at Mythic Level 20 or higher, rewards dungeon teleports that are going away with the launch of Dragonflight.
      Keystone Hero: Grimrail Depot - Complete Grimrail Depot at Mythic Level 20 or higher, within the time limit.Reward: Teleport to Grimrail Depot Keystone Hero: Iron Docks - Complete Iron Docks at Mythic Level 20 or higher, within the time limit. Reward: Teleport to Iron Docks Keystone Hero: Operation: Mechagon - Complete Operation: Mechagon - Junkyard and Operation: Mechagon - Workshop at Mythic Level 20 or higher, within the time limit. Reward: Teleport to Mechagon Keystone Hero: Return to Karazhan - Complete Return to Karazhan: Lower and Return to Karazhan: Upper at Mythic Level 20 or higher, within the time limit. Reward: Teleport to Karazhan Shadowlands Feat of Strength Achievement
      Back from the Beyond, the Shadowlands meta-achievement, is a Feat of Strength and will most likely be removed with the launch of Dragonflight.
      Thanks to MrLachyG and @Arip.
      Mythic Season 4 Elite PvP Armor Sets
      The current Elite PvP Sets are going away too and you must earn a rating of 2,100+ (Duelist: Shadowlands Season 4) if you want to earn every single piece of armor, including the cloak.
      Did we miss anything? Let us know in the comments down below!

      Fishbones06 is back with another awesome concept of Zandalari Warlock minion glyphs.
      Even though Zandalari Troll Warlocks are not available for play in World of Warcraft, Fishbones06 created concept art of minion glyphs. Voidwalkers with masks look awesome, don't you agree?
