US/EU license key

Customer Support
hello, I bought a WoW with an american license key, but I want to play on the EU servers and where i live, i cannot buy EU WoW games because they dont sell any and i was wondering if there was anyway you could change the Keygen from US to EU, thank you for your answers.
If this is possible, you'd need to call Billing. It may not be.

If you're unable to purchase a hard copy of the game where you live, you may be able to purchase it digitally, from the Blizzard store that's region-specific for you, and just download the client.
another question: is it only the first WoW that matters to determine on witch server you're going to play(US/EU)? by that i mean, if i buy the first one with the EU license key, can you upgrade the game to burning crusade, litch king, cataclysm with the american version and stll play on the EU servers?

for infos, i only bought the first one, this is why im confused about the next steps

This is a great answer - though if the copy you purchased is physical, our Billing department may not be able to refund or swap it. You should take it back to the retailer you purchased it from in that case.

No, all keys, including those for the expansions, are region-specific.

No. If you have an EU key for WoW, you would also need an EU key for any subsequent expansions you choose to purchase.
but i don't think i can get a refound on this, because the only way i knew it was an american license Key, its because i opened it...
