Starter Edition?

I recently bought the Battle Chest and all the expansions digitally (~4hrs Ago) me and my friend wanted to start playing again so we started again, I have gone through the digital purchase multiple time (Bought the game multiple time before this) and it has been fine occasionally the locks (ie. No trade, etc) were still there which is fine it say 72 Hours at the most ok, well at this point I cannot even invite my friend let alone anyone to a party because it is saying I am still a Starter Edition?

Looking for some help here, like I have said before I've done this over the past years multiple times and never had a problem with inviting a friend to party? It is quite frustrating I just wanna play with my friend instead of running around by myself, I also RaF him.

Some insight please.

Thank you

It really comes down to the 72 hour window. Some restrictions will be lifted immediately like your ability to get over level 20. Some will take a bit longer. It's not that they will all take 72 hours, but anything within that window may still be restricted. Just keep trying every few hours and see what happens.

It can take up to 72 hours for all starter restrictions to fall off when upgrading digitally, Con. Leveling, gold and professions caps should lift right away.

Has it been the full 72 hours?

It could be that since a patch release was recent, these type of things takes longer than they should.

This issue also seemed to happen to payed services such as transfers, faction changes... etc.

If it hasn't been the full time try to be patient.

If it's been over that time though, you should try calling Billing, see if they can help ya.

Yes, slighty impatient BUT i'm more confused about the fact that it doesn't even allow me to invite someone to my group? I guess that's something new? That's the only real problem at the moment.

Because the game doesn't consider you a paying (non-starter account) member yet. It has not yet been the full 72 hours, according to your first post. Be patient.

You can be in a group...you just can't do the invite yourself.

Then call and complain to your bank for not submitting the funds they took out of your account in a timely manner. The 72 hours is totally dependent on your bank actually sending those funds to Blizzard. Until Blizzard receives the payment, you aren't a paying customer.

That isn't Blizzard's doing. Banks tend to take your money from you, but not pass it on to the vendor very quickly. They hang onto it to make more money with it.

So if you have a problem with it, call your bank. Blizzard opens it as soon as they get the money.
