Diablo® III

Question about CE

If you buy the CE edition after you already have a regular D3 account, can you upgrade your account while still keeping everything you have? This might be a stupid question but I did hear something about account merging. I missed my chance at the CE before but now I have the ability to buy it again. Although, I don't want to get it if I cant get all of the benefits with my current account. Many hours have been put into it, kinda don't want to lose it all. :B

EDIT: This question has been resolved. You can upgrade and keep your heros and items.

Also when you get the upgrade, make a new hero and put the stuff in the share stash then delete the hero if you want. It will work on all of your old heros. Also also you can still buy this edition for a good enough price. Also also also, in order to give your SE to a friend calling or sending blizzard a ticket is the way to go. I recommend calling because they service, at least mine, was great. Finally you can no longer do that 4 month WOW thing.

I would actually like a legitimate answer please. Can I actually upgrade from the regular to the CE and still get everything while keeping my old heros?

Yes.

And at one time, Blizzard CS reps stated you would also get 4 months of WoW as a credit. I'm not sure if this offer still stands, however.

You should be able to upgrade your standard edition Diablo III account to the collector’s edition, but you’ll need to call or submit a ticket to get the process rolling. :)

Please note that you'll need to possess the collector’s edition key prior to contacting Customer Service.

Be sure to ask them about getting a Diablo 3 standard edition Key to give to a friend.

OMG I want this version as well.

How come I've never heard of this?

Oh and while you're at it... what about the version that involves a fun loot system, awesome endgame systems, pvp, and hopefully... beyond hope... a pvm survival arena?

And yea... the version that comes with a portal to Diablo 1&2 with all of D3 in those two games but have the monsters and levels have way cooler graphics.

That would be awesome!!!

I can confirm that you can upgrade from a standard account to CE without losing anything I just did it. just enter the new cd key of the collectors edition on your battlenet and it will upgrade it autiomatically.

I have not been reimbursed for my standard cd key by doing this but ill give CS a call to try and get a key back.

you mean hundreds of kids ranting instead of constructively posting things.

You should be able to upgrade with no problem as it should be the same as when upgrading a WoW account with a standard version to the collector's edition which I did with Cataclysm and had no problems.
