Diablo® III

Store pre-order Wings of Valor Question?

So I saw this today:
https://twitter.com/joshmosq/status/436712810664325120

So I have already pre-ordered the expansion collectors edition at the EB Games near my work... just wondering, how this is going to work... how is this going to work?? When I install the game how will it know that I pre-ordered already? is this only for digital pre-orders or hard copy orders too...

I think Josh's tweet needs to be more specific here.

I actually think this was more of a slip of the tongue after watching this:

I don't think it was ready to be announced, otherwise I think they would have been a little more specific as to whether or not this had applied to non digital copies???

The people asking questions should have pressed on it a bit more...

Pretty sloppy.......... -_-

Exactely my question.

I pre-ordered three CE's from Gamestop
1 for me
and 2 that I am giving away in contests on my site

Do these get the Wings as well?

How would they know if we pre-ordered from a non-blizzard store? Doesn't seem right.

Is this your first time buying a video game? Blizzard will give out codes to brick and mortar stores which they'll add to your receipt. They will also give out codes to online retailers who will email you the code.

I have pre-ordered x2 RoS CE (Physical Copy) from Asiasoft.

Not sure whether it's eligible to get the "Wings of Valor"

Anyway, why don't they (blizz) just bundle it together with non pre-ordered CE?

I also wonder about this but well since they did it with pre-order HOTS for beta access with Amazon.com. I'm quite sure they can do it with this.

How are the going to be able to tell if you pre-ordered a hard copy though?
For those like me that pre-ordered a hard copy, we won't get to install the game till it's released? So how are they going to tell whether we pre-ordered or we just didn't pick it up from the store on the day.... where's the blue posts on this?

I'm going to bump just to maybe get some clarification. I want to believe no matter if you pre-ordered a digital or physical copy, you will get the wings -- but I'm not convinced yet. I need some assurance.

Can't fully tell but it seems tobe a re-skin (not saying thats a bad thing since this is an extra bonus)

Really ? its been said by Josh, why do u need Assurance your getting the wings ? don't worry it will probably be a code attached to your receipt or some sort of voucher that comes with your game when u receive it, either in the mail or pre order pickup. "You will get your wings " ;)

Why they are so small? :(
I hoped for full scale Imperius version this time around since Angelic Wings are regular angel small version. I know hes at least double the size of barb and those wings would take 1/3 of the screen, but animated properly they would rock!

In here "http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/blog/13032539/" says:

"If you pre-order Reaper of Souls at a retail store—either a physical standard edition or physical Collector's Edition—be sure to redeem your Reaper of Souls game key via your Battle.net account on or before 23:59 on March 31, 2014. If you redeem your game key after that date, your pre-order loot will be consumed by the fires of the Burning Hells and lost forever. While you have six days from the time the expansion launches on March 25 to the time you must enter your code, to be safe, you should secure your preorder today and be ready to input your game key on launch day."

Im preordered ROS C.E. from Amazon and I am too far from USA. it is certain I cannot have my game before March 31. So I be a Collector's edition buyer which has not have "The Wings of Valor" ?

There's a lot of good questions about pre-order items in this thread, so I'm going to do my best to answer some of them and clear things up. You can also read more about it in the Reaper of Souls Pre-Order Loot Revealed blog if you want.

  • All digital pre-orders (new and old) are automatically set up to receive the bonuses
  • If you've pre-ordered a physical copy of Reaper of Souls (standard or Collector's Edition) then you'll need to redeem your Reaper of Souls game key with your Battle.net account on or before 11:59pm PST on March 31, 2014
  • The Wings of Valor will automatically be sent to your existing and newly created characters starting on March 20, 2014
  • Valla the Demon Hunter will be available once Heroes of the Storm has been officially released

In other words, if there are any doubts about shipping time, expedite it to ensure you get the wings.
