New Archon pet with Deluxe SC2 expansion

Postby Morlis » July 15th, 2015, 1:06 pm

*Sigh*

StarCraft 2: Legacy of the Void the deluxe edition. It will have a pet for WoW that resembles an Archon from SC2.

Not a huge fan of paying for games I don't really play, just to have the pet. This one will cost $60 just to have a pet for WoW.

My wish is that Blizzard would add the pets to the pets section of WoW Shop and charge the price of the upgrade. In this case the normal game is $40, so they could just charge $20 for the pet. Save me a few bucks on games that collect virtual dust. I have paid for all deluxe versions of Diablo and don't even currently have it installed.

*edit for expected release. SC2 expansion Sometime in Winter 2015 or early 2016.

If you don't own Mini Thor or the Baneling already, don't preorder! You can get all 3 pets for $99.99 from the Blizz shop, which is an INCREDIBLE deal!

I own one already and sent in a ticket to see if I could get it as well (since right now you aren't able to buy the bundle if you own 1/2 collectors editions). The GM said they are working on making it possible, so if you own the Baneling but need Mini Thor wait a week or two and you can also buy this bundle. Which would be awesome.

I just got my Legacy pre-order refunded so I could purchase the Collection instead. I didn't realize that the "Deluxe" on the collection applied to all three, because the pricing made that a "too good to be true" scenario. In my case, I just have to wait for the refund to clear on their end before I can complete the purchase for the whole bloody thing.

"Gotta catch 'em all!" <.<

Tried to pre-purchase the Complete Collection Deluxe Edition (thanks for the tip Roisen !) and was told I wasn't eligible because I'd already bought deluxe version of one of the pieces that makes it up. Which I hadn't. Checked transaction history and had only bought standard edition of Wings of Liberty last year. Also do not have Mini Thor or Baneling in my journal.

Glitch, apparently. Opened a ticket. Since it involves them getting more of my money, expect they'll fix it.

I never tell my friends I'm paying Real Money to get more WoW pets. Embarrassing.

That's a fantastic deal. Pity it doesn't seem to be available in the EU. :( :(

I was wondering if, due to it being software only, you could purchase from the US store but in the EU. The reason, simple: Currency conversion brings it down to £64.17

Sneaky, but wondering if it's possible...

I purchased the 99.00 bundle for all Starcraft II this morning, and had Mini Thor and Baneling waiting in my mailbox seconds later, and got the achievements as well.

If I can get my hands on the mini Thor I will be estatic.
That one is near impossible to get or costs not hundreds but thousands of dollars.
Hope the fix the bug with baneling since I already have that one.
99 bucks for two rare pets is a deal.
Maybe one day I might actually log onto star craft.

Now, if only they'd do this for WoW original CE's etc, I'd be one very happy, very poor pet collector!!!

Uh oh ! Lots of mad folks in the Starcraft forums.

http://us.battle.net/sc2/en/forum/topic/18300413547

Apparently you're not eligible to buy the Complete Deluxe Digital package if you ever bought even a Standard edition of Starcraft before. Hoping that Blizzard gets pressured into changing the rules.

THIS!

It seems like Blizz didn't thoroughly think out how the SC2 complete collector's DD pack will work before rolling it out. There are people who want to buy the pack even though they already have the HotS CE/DD, essentially telling Blizz "Shut up and take my money!" You'd think that Blizz will be willing to do that. Here's hoping that issues regarding the pack will be resolved soon.

Paying real money for pets is only an incredible deal for Blizzard imho. But each to their own.
