Your account should be upgraded automatically.

It depends on how you upgrade:

Buying a boxed copy from amazon or a physical store will require that you enter the code from inside the box into your WoW account on Battle.net. Note: If you do it this way, don't use the CD's for installation, they are basically coasters or cheap microwave fireworks (disclaimer: will ruin microwave & cause sparks, maybe even fire). You already have the full and complete game on your computer, your account status on battle.net is what's preventing you from accessing the locked bits of the game.

Buying a digital "copy" (really just the code to upgrade) from Blizzard's online store: You'll get a code sent to you by e-mail, which you will then have to enter into your WoW account on battle.net

Upgrading directly through battle.net is an automatic upgrade, no codes. Though this method will take up to 72 hours for all the restrictions to lift. Basically, whenever your bank/credit card company tells Blizzard that your payment is good, then the social restrictions will be lifted.

You never lose anything for upgrading. You will keep everything you have, and yes you'll be able to play it up to level 80.

Absolutely. The only time you EVER lose your characters is if they get intentionally deleted from the character selection menu in-game. Otherwise, they will always persist, through account conversions, application of expansion packs, account inactivity periods, etc.

RAF recruitment is not allowed in this forum. Read the rules before trying to poach newbies.


Sounds to me he's simply suggesting it, what if he didn't know there was such a thing as RaF ? Suggestion RaF to a completely new player is absolutely fine, as is explaining what it does, how to get it ( or simply directing them to the official RaF FAQ ). Making a thread however on this forum is not allowed and should be placed on the guild/realm forums.

Next time before trying to act like a forum MOD, read the rules yourself.

Actually suggesting a new player RAF with you is completely against the rules. Using this forum for RAF recruiting in any way is not allowed. You're telling the person who made the sticky against RAF to look at the forum rules?

I laughed harder than I should at this.

And yes, I am the author of the "RAF is not allowed here" sticky at the top of this forum.

Let's not be quite so hasty with a rush to make blanket statements.

Suggesting that a new player look into the RAF promotion is perfectly reasonable - it would get them into the game much faster.

Offering to RAF another player or looking for somebody to RAF you... yes, those aren't allowed.

I apologize, my wording could be taken either way. When I said suggesting raf I meant suggesting that they raf with them. Of course telling a player to look into the RAF program is perfectly acceptable.

Soliciting them however, is not.

Edited my previous post.

Just one more thing, if you buy the digital copy, there is no code, or e-mail, your account is just automatically upgraded.

If you have a question please make a new thread. You're just bumping an old thread for no reason.

You can't make monks if you don't have mists of pandaria.
