I'm still not excited about the collector's edition, regardless of the fact that WAR has my heart.

Though the art book could be cool.

Ebgames.com.au has the two items up on those prices.

Price is $99.95 at EB for collector's edition.

I do hope the next place I move to has capabilities for this CE to be delivered to me. Seriously cannot wait, worth it for the removal of Flash Powder alone.

Just the flash powder removal? Screw that man, Murder Spree! icon_biggrin.gif

Yeah I came out of WoW just to say this:

OHHH HELL YEAHH.

Can't wait

I wonder how limited the Collector's Edition will be. So many pre-orders already. Now with a release date...

I might have to get back into this. Have the system requirements gone up? My Mac can just run it as it is, and I don't wanna have to continually play it on my mum's mac. I know they improved bits of the graphics.

And what is your reasoning for that? My Mac can only just run it because it is 4-5 years old, and still running fine. I just wanna know if I will still be able to run it. Right now, i have it between low-medium, and outside I get like 20-25 fps. Not that bad, but I hope it doesn't go lower.

my reasoning for that is you can get better hardware for much less and still use the same OS .

if BC and WOW are anything to go by, probably around 20-30 per store, more if it's a central/primary location.

i know people at 3 different EBs in WA, and they all reckon, based on the BC availability, the number of preorders they've had since WotLK was announced is probably already over the number of CEs they'll get.

but i'm sure some will pop up in other stores later, i mean there are a few stores in the Perth Metro area where you can still get them, and some are even reasonably priced - well, if you consider staying at RRP (ie: $120) "reasonable". (not the $250 BS that GameTraders has them marked at.)

Seriosuly, you can still get copys of the BC collectors edition...

Man I've gotta go to perth.

I am gonna preorder Wrath of the Lich King hopefully. I still don't even have The Burning Crusade, and I am only level 21. Will I need The Burning Crusade to get WotLC?

Yeah you will unfortunatley. Even if you didn't you would be 10 levels too low to attempt anything in WOTLK.

most of the stuff like Inscription, Hair styles etc the stuff available before level 70 is all going to be in 3.0.1 wich is comming out soon that you can get without the WOTLK expansion.

Honestly I'd say wait till you level up before you buy it. You'll probbably be able to get it with BC in a battle chest in a couple of months and save yourself some cash.
