Classic re-release = CE pets for all?

Postby Spifty » October 10th, 2018, 1:42 pm

Will the re-release of classic WoW come with the option of buying it in the Collector’s Edition and thus allow many of us to obtain the 3 corresponding pets?

Obviously there is no answer to this yet, but I would love to know what you all think. I personally have never seen a game released without a physical edition option, especially from Blizzard. And why would they waste the opportunity for more money? My inkling right now is they will keep things very true to form from vanilla minus exploits. This makes me think that classic progress will be separate from everyone’s current accounts. There will not be account-wide application of newly obtained mounts, achievements, feats of strength, transmogs, etc. But then again I can see a money incentive for Blizzard there too. If they did release the CE option with the 1 or 3 pets option that applied to your main account that would make those $5000 copies on eBay worth diddly. Sell now or buy now? I’m so curious about this one. I doubt this question could be answered at BlizzCon, but boy do I hope it at least gets asked.

I’m eager to hear your thoughts too.

I'm betting they will put them in the digital deluxe, but I'm also betting they won't be account wide.

It would be a powerful incentive to get people to try it. I would be unsurprised to see them available as a digital deluxe, and for them to go to your retail account as well.

They've shown they are not adverse to making the previous physical-only pets available as digital. They did it for the SC2 CE pets when LotV came out.

the only problem i can see is that the ppl who have the 3 from the orignal wow will be hurting, i mean if i had payed out over £800 for a copy for the pets i would be a bit miffed.

I think it would be good if they had the 3 pets but with new updated models, then everyone can collect them and the people who have the orignals still get to keep the "rare" stats of them.

They've had them for some time, and if they chose to spend that amount of money on them with no assurance it could never be had cheaper. That handful will not stop Blizzard from making them available to a wider audience at some point.

I imagine also that most of them are like me. When Blizzard makes something available for more people to get enjoyment out of it, they are happy for the beneficiaries.

I would prefer that they make more of the EU only pets available to NA realms, like they did with the recruit a friend rewards several years ago.

So far Blizzard has been really good about saying it's 1-time only and not going back on that years later. Kind of sucks for those of us, like me, that didn't go to Blizzcon or pay extra for some silly game back in the day. But not fair to the few who were there and did that to suddenly make it where everybody can get same rewards they did.

Wouldn't it be nice to get a high quality re-skins of the pets instead? That way its something cool and nostalgic for people buying whatever digital deluxe version of classic comes out, and people who sold out for the 'original' could still keep their 'old' look (wether they would be two different pets with slightly changed names or the same pet with two 'skins' depending on the origin is i guess another debate).

Finally, something that would get me to buy/try classic!
