    Where to preorder thx. Note that this is for the special edition.

    At 6 weeks in advance, Gamestop says they are sold out of preorders. This is interesting since I was able to preorder the original game only 4 weeks in advance. Best Buy and CompUSA aren't doing preorders. No one else even has a SKU for the special edition.

    I got my special edition of the original game by waiting in front of Target without a preorder, but I still had a preorder in at Gamestop just in case. I am looking for a place to secure my copy through preorder.

    At this point the only way to order that I can think of would be on online store like Amazon. You would have to wait a couple of days to get it though.

    If you have found any online places with the special edition, please post links. I haven't been able to find any, including Amazon.

    Suggested retail on special edition is 69.99. They are jacking it up.

    I can only find 3 reviews of that store, and 2 of those say they got ripped off. So much for that idea. Back to having no preorder options.

    I didn't get into WoW for a year after it came out, but what is wrong with just standing in line at 9am at the local Best Buy? Thats what I plan to do anyway. Let me know if I am being naive.

    I did and will do the same thing. It worked the first time and it will probably work the second time. I just don't like leaving things to chance.

    Sorry I guess I should have told you I never used them before. It was just the only thing I could find.

    The collector's just got posted to the blizzard store again:

    http://www.blizzard.com/market.shtml

    It sold out in their store very soon after it was first posted. I guess they got more. I was able to place an order this second time around.

    I would not have thought it possible for any group of people to whine more than mages until I came upon this thread:

    http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=64247020&sid=1

    These are people who preordered the collector's edition from Blizzard. Several of them received a followup email informing then that their orders cannot be filled (so far I am not one of those). Some of them are going so far as to threaten Blizzard with a class action lawsuit for not filling their preorders.

    Some people in that thread mentioned that they preordered several copies of the collectors edition from Blizzard. It's no wonder there is such a panic over limited supplies when people are hoarding them.

    I might end up with 2 copies of the collectors edition if both my preorder and "day of" plans work out. In that event I will sell one at cost to any of you hopefuls that missed out.

    If the netherwhelp pet is important to you, then keep in mind that there has been no confirmation of how it will be delivered. There is suspicion that you will not be able to get it if you upgrade your account using the regular edition of BC first... meaning you will need to wait a day or two after release to receive the collector's edition from me before you can play the expansion (if you want the pet, and in the event that I have a copy to sell).
