Unpacking Wrath of the Lich King

At 9:00am ACT (Asean Common Time) today, I received my World of Warcraft®: Wrath of the Lich King™ box.

Come and let’s open the box.

The box design is just like any other game boxes of Blizzard, which you can see below:

Opening the box (I removed my Key :p )

The contents of the standard box are:

  • DVD Installer with attached Game Key
  • 2 Trial Pass Keys
  • WotLK Game Manual
  • Blizzard Product Catalog

I inserted the DVD and started installing the game. The patch that comes with the installer is v3.0.1 Build 8874:

Once installation starts, you will be immediately asked to upgrade your account. Just click it and you will be taken to the WotLK Upgrade page. After that, you get this:

Next time you login to your Account page, you will see this:

Yes, you can upgrade your account now and you can install WotLK. What comes in the DVD are the WotLK extras like its Official Intro Cinematic. In fact, you can choose not to install the DVD and you can still enjoy all that WotLK has to offer.

Patch 3.x.x contains all the graphic files you need (except the voice-overs, WotLK Cinematic, etc., these are what gets installed plus the old Patch 3.0.1). If you still have your downloaded Patch 3.0.2 and 3.0.3, the client will automatically patch to it, no downloading at all.

I am very much ready this launch. Want to buy WoW: WotLK? You can buy here, here, or:

See you in Northrend this launch!
