About this product
- Product InformationA dark frontier awaits in the game "World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade—Collector’s Edition." Two new races arrive with the Burning Crusade expansion. The Blood Elves are doomed descendants of the High Elves who fought alongside Humans against Orcs generations earlier, and the Draenei are a refugee people that managed to resist the Legion's demonic corruption. This expansion for the game adds hundreds of quests, dozens of monsters, and raises the level cap to 70. A full installation of the main game is required to play the add-on. While some of the expansion's new content is available to all current players, those who wish to visit the Outland or create characters of the new races must install The Burning Crusade.

The beginning of the end, is the end of the beginning.
Call me Ishmael. Some years ago - never mind how long precisely - having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me on shore, I thought I would sail about a little and see the watery part of the world. It is a way I have of driving off the spleen, and regulating the circulation. Whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before coffin warehouses, and bringing up the rear of every funeral I meet; and especially whenever my hypos get such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the street, and methodically knocking people's hats off - then, I account it high time to get to sea as soon as I can. This is my substitute for pistol and ball. With a philosophical flourish Cato throws himself upon his sword; I quietly take to the ship. There is nothing surprising in this. If they but knew it, almost all men in their degree, some time or other, cherish very nearly the same feelings towards the ocean with me.
There now is your insular city of the Manhattoes, belted round by wharves as Indian isles by coral reefs - commerce surrounds it with her surf. Right and left, the streets take you waterward. Its extreme down-town is the battery, where that noble mole is washed by waves, and cooled by breezes, which a few hours previous were out of sight of land. Look at the crowds of water-gazers there.
Circumambulate the city of a dreamy Sabbath afternoon. Go from Corlears Hook to Coenties Slip, and from thence, by Whitehall northward. What do you see? - Posted like silent sentinels all around the town, stand thousands upon thousands of mortal men fixed in ocean reveries. Some leaning against the spiles; some seated upon the pier-heads; some looking over the bulwarks of ships from China; some high aloft in the rigging, as if striving to get a still better seaward peep. But these are all landsmen; of week days pent up in lath and plaster - tied to counters, nailed to benches, clinched to desks. How then is this? Are the green fields gone? What do they here?
But look! here come more crowds, pacing straight for the water, and seemingly bound for a dive. Strange! Nothing will content them but the extremest limit of the land; loitering under the shady lee of yonder warehouses will not suffice. No. They must get just as nigh the water as they possibly can without falling in. And there they stand - miles of them - leagues. Inlanders all, they come from lanes and alleys, streets and avenues, - north, east, south, and west. Yet here they all unite. Tell me, does the magnetic virtue of the needles of the compasses of all those ships attract them thither?
Once more. Say, you are in the country; in some high land of lakes. Take almost any path you please, and ten to one it carries you down in a dale, and leaves you there by a pool in the stream. There is magic in it. Let the most absent- minded of men be plunged in his deepest reveries - stand that man on his legs, set his feet a-going, and he will infallibly lead you to water, if water there be in all that region. Should you ever be athirst in the great American desert, try this experiment, if your caravan happen to be supplied with a metaphysical professor. Yes, as every one knows, meditation and water are wedded for ever.
But here is an artist. He desires to paint you the dreamiest, shadiest, quietestRead full review

World of Warcraft: Cataclysm Collector's Edition
i love these world of warcraft collector's editions. i own all but the first one and i love the way they all look together on the shelf. like all the collector's editions before it this one is loaded with extras to sink your teeth into. the art book features work directly from the cataclysm expansion, the soundtrack is one of the best i have heard from a warcraft game and the lil deathwing pet is always a nice little cosmetic to add to your avatar. all in all if you are a fan of the series you need to get your hands on this pronto and start rolling a goblin A.S.A.P. FOR THE HORDE!

GREAT!!! A Good Addition to an Already Epic Game!
If you are an avid world of warcraft fan then this collectors edition will suit you well. Otherwise, for all other fans this is something that will cost you more than its worth. Although at a price tag of now around $29.99 it might just be well worth it for any fan. The edition raises the level cap from 60 to 70 and adds two new playable races: The Drainei and Bloodelves. Not to mention new items, monsters, zones, and more! The purchase also comes with the game, "Art of the Burning Crusade" book, exclusive in-game pet and behind-the-scenes DVD. Also includes World of Warcraft Trading Card Game starter deck and exclusive cards, mouse pad with map of Outland & official soundtrack CD only in the Collector's Edition. A Great game for an existing world of warcraft fan who wants to expand the wow universe!Read full review

WoW's Burning Crusade!
While not exactly what every World of Warcraft fan was waiting for, it was an awesome experience grabbing the flying mounts for the first time. As for the grind from 60-70... not so great. In the mundane WoW questing style a lot of the quests you do are just longer more repetitive washed up version of past quests. Kill X amount of mobs and pick up Y amount of items. It was also a shame to see all of your old epics turn to greens, and old rep go to no use. The new PVP system was amazing, the ability to save up honor without worries of losing any, was just awesome! All in all BC was a mediocre expansion with lots of new flashy zones to keep you happy till you reached your level cap. The good stuff wasn't to come until almost an entire year later, with the introduction of new raids and gear. BC is still a requirement for the next expansion Wrath of the Lich King, so go ahead and grab it!Read full review
