Collector's edition MoP

So if I order the collector's edition and for some reason it does not arrive on time does that mean that I'm stuck without MoP until I get the box?

The other option I see is that I pre-order the digital copy and then upgrade when I get the box, but then I would have bought 2 MoP expansions and waste one.

Yes, you would be without the expansion until you received the box and was able to activate the authentication key that comes inside said box. And yes, to have access when the expansion goes live and then adding the CE key to it later burns the original key used for it.

Since the digital rewards are exactly the same, you could perhaps the Collectors Edition, then allow somebody else you know use the cd-key itself and keep the physical items in the box.

This way you don't waste a key and get on release date

Of course you do understand that September is a Tuesday right? In the past the realms HAVE gone down for maintenance on the release date, even if they don't, they are under a great deal of stress and problems have happen on HEAVY populated realms.

So unless you can't get it guarantee shipped on the release date ( i.e. Amazon ) your better off with the digital copy.

The expansion won't even go live likely until AFTER the maintenance period

You are wrong. It will be going live at 12:01am PST time on Sept. 25th. Cata only required a restart of the realm to activate it. However, you are correct in that there were lag problems on heavily populated realms.

If you want to play at launch you have to buy the digital dl from Blizz. Unfortunately if you also want the CE box set you must also purchase it from a retailer. Realms go live at 12 am PT, however it may take several hours to actually log in, just keep trying! It is a total rush being one of the first people to play the new expansion. Woot Woot! have a blast!
