This expansion level is now included in the basic "battlechest" of the game World of Warcaft Battlechest so no need to purchase seperately as the game key (cd key) is no longer valid.

The Collectors edition can still be used to gain access to collectors edition items however.

I think World of Warcraft speaks for itself as an online MMO the only reason
i got this game was you need it to expand up to Cataclysm even before cataclysm
World of Warcraft Rocks Period

I bought this when Blizzard respected their customers and made games they enjoyed playing, that gamers enjoyed playing. I cannot tell you how much of my life I spent, some might say wasted, in Icecrown Citadel it was the best expansion pack of WoW ever.

The expansion after this killed World of Warcraft and I find it rather ironic I'm writing a review on a game I gave up playing in November 2012.

This game was awesome, once. This expansion pack IS awesome...shame the game sucks now though

RIP!

Having played the beta from it's opening in July, I have had an oppertunity to see what the developers have been hard at work doing since Blizzcon last year. To my surprise, the results are extroindary. As they have stated on many an occasion, they have taken the good from Burning Crusade and ran with it. The quests and storyline are fresh and rarely feel tedious, the environments are stunning and the music really helps you feel immersed in the experience.

Alot of people were dissapointed with Burning Crusade and I can happily say that Wrath of the Lich King has looked back, seen the issues that the previous expansion had and moved in the opposite direction. The Death Knight hero class, which at first to me seemed inappropriate and a possible lore killer, fits in reasonably well with the story and the starting zone really makes you feel as though you are playing the very first hero class.

Some things from the old world have been changed to reflect storyline changes (E.G the removal of Lady Katrana Prestor A.K.A Onyxia from Stormwind and the return of the King.) which is refreshing and makes the game feel alot less static. In addition a new mechanic has been added that allows for a story to progress through questing that changes the environment on a client side level so that only those that have reached that point can see the changes. (An excelent example of this is during the Death Knight starting quests and later in Northrend.) which again makes you feel really immersed in the story that is being told.

This addition to an already amazing game takes the War in Warcraf to a whole new level, while in Northrend you will really feel as though your actions could really save Azeroth. Fans of the lore will also be satisfied with the return of an old villain and the effects it has on the entire world.

I would recommend this expansion for anyone that has played World of Warcraft in the past and enjoyed it, it really does give the game a fresh breath of life!

For new WoW players i would like to show you what i did to get the maximum from the game on all levels. I stayed with the original World Of Warcraft and The Burning Crusade expansion pack and levelled up to 70 whilst exploring all the instances in the burning crusade. There is no point in staying at level 60 for a while to explore the storyline of the "Original Wow" as blizzard have got rid of nearly all of the interesting things in it but i found that much of the content from The Burning crusade remained so I didn't buy Wrath of The Lich King just yet. This was personally a great idea as i explored so much of the burning crusade content at level 70 and got loads of epics. Many people also admit that the dungeons at level 70 in Burning Crusade require more skill than those of Wrath Of The Lich King which prepared me greatly for the challenges to come when i joined the realm of the Lich King and when you stay at level 70 and get epics, you will get a lot of recognition from other players which felt quite good. Also i would advise it because if you think "what is the point in getting an expansion pack if I'm going to skip it to the next?" It feels as if it is a real waste so i would advise to get the burning crusade, stay on that level for a while, explore the content reasonably briefly or in detail if you please then after a while or IF you get bored, move on to WOTLK and start levelling again and you will feel fairly used to the new content and greatly prepared. Personally this worked great for me and i hope you found this review useful. Have a fun time playing!

Well ordered the game 2 weeks ago and I'm still waiting, in the meantime I'm no longer able to level my main characters until i receive this expansion pack... yes the games got its good and bad points but I'm certainly not here to review something that's been released for nearly 2 years now. I'm here to make others aware of the shoddy delivery service and hoping that if and when it does eventually arrive that it's the genuine article as there's a few recent reviewers that have had problems with this provider, due to games that must have been opened and resealed it seems.
Only wish I had done two things 1) checked out the reviews in more detail and 2) not canceled my order from another website because I thought it was going to take to long... which sucks big time as I'd have it way before now.

I've been playing WoW for maybe 6 months now, and its a love hate relationship. I can sometimes spend 5 hours every evening/night on the game and then get sick of it for a month or so and not touch it.

This expansion is a must have if you play WoW very often. It gives you the new level to hit which is 80, not 70. Gives you a whole other island to explore and a lot more quests and dungeons to explore.

Delivery was very good, came pretty much next day since I ordered this after working hours a day before. Good price (shame it isn't very cheap though)

All in all a great product. Didn't give the game 5 stars because right now, WoW is just boring to me.

The new expansion pack is aimed at more experienced leveled players as you have to have a level 55 character from the older games to even start playing with your death knight.
I had loads of fun starting my new death knight class and even though I hear complaints of it ruining the old game I don't see anyone quiting.

I would've liked to start from level 1 but I like the new twist in the story and the way the starting quests play out is a lot of fun.

I think it is an improvement and at worst hasn't ruined the old game I'm just waiting for the next patch and next class to battle the death knights!

This game is fun for people who just want to waste time. the online community developed by blizzard here is one of a kind although many other games may try to copy it this game is on a whole different level the live interaction with other live people keeps the game fresh and the fact that blizzard is always constantly working on removing any and all glitches from the game makes it truly a must have game. but on the darker side of things this game is highly addictive and the people playing it already all seem to have a badd attitude towards people just starting "nubes"

I love World of Warcraft, and this expansion doesn't let the game down! The Ice crown citadel is awesome and requires alot of skill compared to raids in the Burning Crusade. The new kingdom is beautiful with great story lines. I highly recommend it to all WoW fans.
