How does the World of Warcraft game work? Do you have to buy it at a store? How do you play online?

By admin | November 14, 2009





Any and all information is accepted! I have only played the Free Trial so I don’t know anything about it. Also, I want to buy the burning crusades expansion. Anyone who knows the easiest/ cheapest way to own and play this game, please help me!!!

There are a total of 3 downloads/games.

World of warcraft -$19.99
The Burning Crusade $29.99
Wrath of the lich King $39.99

and soon the fourth expansion Cataclysm will be launched. No price on that one.

But you need to buy each one and install them and then pay the monthly fee $14.99 a month.

I wouldnt buy them off ebay as if the Code has been used, then you are out the $$$. Buy it from any retailer.

    You can buy it in a store or you can download it from Blizzard.

    You connect to the internet and then you play.

    It costs anywhere from about 13 to 15 bucks a month.

    The cheapest way is to buy the WoW Battle Chest. It has WoW and the Burning Crusade as well as the guide books for both games. It’s about 40 bucks. There might be a sale during Black Friday. Last year, on Black Friday, most of Blizzard’s Battle Chest were down to about 20 bucks.

    You have to have the original game and the two expansions. It costs quite a bit, but in my opinion, it is worth it.

    You do buy the game at the store, but really the purpose of this is to activate your account

    (ex. If you buy the original World of Warcraft, your account can play the game up to level 60, and you can’t play with expansions, if you have burning crusade you can level to 70, and use new areas.)

    The game is not cheap. Its fifteen dollars a month, and not only that, but if you buy the original game you’ll come to a point where you’re at level 60 and need to level higher, so you have to go and spend more money on buying the burning crusade, then when you hit 70, you’ll probably want to buy Wrath of the Lich King.

    So far that is the most recent expansion, but another one is coming out soon call Cataclysm.

    (EDIT)
    you play it on your computer at home via connection to the internet. So yes you need a internet connection.

    You can download the game from the net, You can pay to play it. Or you can download the free version that isn’t as good but its ok. it just doesn’t have as many things as they do on the paid for server.

    You buy it at the store, or online. If you have a fast internet connection I would just do it online. Once its installed, you go online and set up an account. Its 15$ a month. Then you open up the game and you use the account information that you set up online to log into the game. And there you have it a world of warcraft account.

    You can buy it from nearly any gaming store i think. You best choice will be buying the Battlechest and lich king. To play it, its simple.

    If you really want to play the game maybe make a donate. I dont know if its a really good cause to think of it. World of Warcraft actually seems more cheaper than just owning a console if you dont consider internet expense.

    I believe the game is between 30-40. Game card is 30 as well.
    Getting the burning crusade allows you two be two other race that you may enjoy playing, but I wouldn’t consider them to be the best besides just by their looks.

    The gamecard is $30 for 60 days, thats more than the worth of enterentertainment than a $50-$60 console game which only may last less than a week. Unless if you sell it but getting half price wont be worth it because it’ll just continue down to the next used game you get.
    Which I have went through.

    Its actually not that bad, my little brother can save up more than $30 in a month. He gets money by recieving good grades. Either that hes just a kid that doesn’t ask much but just $30 every two months lol

    you have already downloaded and installed the core game. All you need to do is go to your account online, at http://www.worldofwarcraft.com, purchase the full game (I am not sure of the price) and set up a payment plan.If you buy 6 months at a time, it is the cheapest, at $12.99 a month; 3 months @ a time is $13.99 a month; and one month at a time is $14.99 a month.
    Once you have purchased your full account, you can then download the next expansion, The Burning Crusade. Again, you must purchase this game when you download it, and you will get a code as you did in the first purchase online, to activate it.
    After you have done that, you can download and purchase the 3rd expansion, Wrath of the Lich King.
    You can also purchase the expansions at any store that carries computer software, such as Wal-Mart or GameStop. Then all that is required is installation and registration.
    Keep in mind, however, you must pay the monthly subscription to be able to play.
    The only limits on the free trial (that differentiate it from the full version) are that you can’t trade with other players, you can’t use the auction house, and you can’t join a guild.

    Hey Ariel,

    The cheapest and easiest way is to download the game software from the account management page of any World of Warcraft account. You can do this directly at Blizzard. Then you can purchase a CD Key from ebay, amazon etc..
    Once you have it installed an running, it will cost about 10 to 20 a month to play online.
    You can get leveled up very quickly and cheaply at http://bit.ly/WOWDailies. Get all kinds of cool stuff to have more fun playing.

    Hope this helps!

    You can play for free, yup totaly for free. First you need to download the install from the internet, which will help you download and in stall, world of warcraft and both expasions.

    Whilst this is happening look for a private server which suites your liking. For E.G 3.1.3 privite server.

    Then after the game has downloaded it will begin patching, you then stop the patches at 3.1.3.

    In your wow folders there will be a file names realmlist, you then change this to the servers (found on server website) then boom. Free wow.!

    You can buy the game at a store for 20 bucks. Or you can just start subscribing for your trial account online and download the full version.

    Well you can download the games for free but you can’t play unless u have an account and have upgraded the account for the expansions. so wether u get the downloads free u still have to pay for the upgrades and u also have to pay the $15 a month. so i suggest you just go to best buy and buy the games or you can go online and purchase from the website using pay pal or a credit card of course :P
