WoW Collector’s Edition Price Changes From Vanilla to Dragonflight – World of Warcraft

The price of the Dragonflight Collector surprised many. Blizzard Gear actually sells it for € 129.99, which is the highest for a Collector’s Edition of World of Warcraft. It gave me the idea to do a little update on the rates Blizzard has been charging for expansions since the release of the MMORPG.

Prices for Collector’s Editions since Vanilla

The analysis of price evolution should be done in the same way as the price evolution. As you can see, the latter is very similar to the first extensions, with a CD/DVD, artbook, mouse pad or even a CD soundtrack.

As you can see, the price was very strong at first, with the first 4 expansions being the same price as the original game. Cataclysm and Mists of Pandaria may be the expansions that give you the most money.

Then it increases a bit, which can be justified by adding a Sesame for a character. On the other hand, the CD soundtrack from Legion is missing.

With Warlords of Draenor, Blizzard is starting to add Sesame, but even more bonuses for the company’s other games. The content of Battle for Azeroth is probably the most disappointing because it primarily comes with a book and the metal Allegiance Mark. For 100 €, it’s a bit tight compared to what we usually discover when opening the boxes (just as nice actually).

The price went up another notch for Battle for Azeroth (+15 €). With Shadowlands, Blizzard raised the price again (+€ 20) but added 30 days of play to pay less. Ditto for Dragonflight, which also benefits from a one -month subscription but has a cost almost the same as in Shadowlands … for 10 € more. But what do you want, it all grows over time ^^

For my part, if Blizzard could add more in-game bonuses, I would prefer that the company lower the price by removing Sesame and bonuses in other games. What do you think?
