Free Diablo III for WoW Subscribers!
  • In case you're not watching the Blizzcon opening ceremony, he just announced that WoW users who sign up for a yearly subscription will receive Diablo III for free and guaranteed access to the next WoW xpac beta and a crazy mount. It's supposedly available now, but you can only see it on your Battle.net account page, and I can't seem to get the link to work.

    World of Warcraft Annual Pass FAQ


    What is the World of Warcraft® Annual Pass?

    This promotion is a limited-time offer that provides you with a free copy of the highly anticipated Diablo® III, access to the beta test for the next World of Warcraft expansion, and Tyrael's Charger, an exclusive in-game mount for the associated World of Warcraft account, when you agree to a 12-month World of Warcraft subscription commitment.


    How do I qualify for this promotion?

    To qualify for this promotion you must be an adult in the United States of America, Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, or Singapore and have a valid Battle.net® account with an attached North American or European World of Warcraft region license in good standing on or before October 18, 2011. Also prior to accepting the offer you must have a recurring World of Warcraft subscription active on the associated account. Other restrictions may apply and can be found in the Terms and Agreement.


    I have multiple World of Warcraft accounts on my Battle.net account. Are they all eligible?

    While you may sign up for this promotion on multiple World of Warcraft accounts attached to a single Battle.net account, only one Diablo III license and one opportunity to participate in the beta test for the next World of Warcraft expansion per Battle.net account will be added.


    What if I have an "unmerged" World of Warcraft account (an account that hasn't been associated with a Battle.net account)?

    If you meet all other eligibility requirements and would like to take advantage of this promotional offer, then you would need to first create a free Battle.net account if you haven't already and associate your World of Warcraft account with that Battle.net account. All of this can be done at https://us.battle.net/account/management/wow-account-conversion.html. For further information about merging a World of Warcraft account with a Battle.net account, see this FAQ.


    Can I create a new World of Warcraft account to take advantage of this promotion?

    To be eligible for this promotion you must have a World of Warcraft license in good standing on or before October 18, 2011. New World of Warcraft accounts created after October 18, 2011are not eligible to for this promotion.


    My World of Warcraft subscription is lapsed or inactive. Can I reactivate my subscription to take advantage of this promotion?

    Yes. You will be eligible to receive a free copy of Diablo III and the other benefits of this promotion if you meet the qualification criteria and once you reactivate your existing World of Warcraft account and agree to a 12-month subscription commitment.


    If I sign up on multiple accounts, what do I get?

    Each additional World of Warcraft account that signs up for this promotion on a single Battle.net account will be able to receive the exclusive in-game mount, Tyrael's Charger.


    When will I receive Diablo III?

    Diablo III will be available to download via your Battle.net account when the game is released.


    What if I purchase Diablo III separately?

    Only one Diablo III license may be attached to a Battle.net account.


    What if I purchase the Diablo III Collector's Edition?

    If you decide to purchase the Diablo III Collector's Edition when it's available, and then choose to add your Collector's Edition license key to the Battle.net account associated with your existing World of Warcraft Annual Pass promotion, you will receive all of the benefits associated with the Collector's Edition, plus receive four months of World of Warcraft game time which is eligible towards your 12-month subscription commitment. After you purchase the Diablo III Collector's Edition you just need to input the product key into the Battle.net account associated with your World of Warcraft 12-month commitment and that account will then receive the next 4 months of World of Warcraft game time for free. For example, if you already had a month of game time on the associated World of Warcraft account when you input your Diablo III Collector's Edition product key, it would then be 5 months until your next subscription payment was due.


    When will I receive the Tyrael's Charger mount?

    The exclusive Tyrael's Charger in-game mount will be added to the selected account and available via in-game mail with the release of Patch 4.3.


    Is the mount available for all characters on the account or just one?

    Once activated, the exclusive Tyrael's Charger in-game mount applies to all present and future characters on the associated World of Warcraft account.


    Is Tyrael's Charger a ground or flying mount?

    Tyrael's Charger can be used as either a ground or flying mount.


    What speed is the mount?

    The speed of the mount scales based on your riding skill. This can vary from 60% ground only with Apprentice Riding to 310% speed while flying with Master Riding.


    Can I cancel my World of Warcraft subscription at any point during the 12-month term?

    By taking advantage of this special promotion, you are committing to a 12-month World of Warcraft subscription, and you cannot cancel your subscription until the 12-month term of the agreement has ended.


    Do I have to have a recurring subscription for the entire 12 months?

    Yes, a valid recurring subscription must be maintained during the 12-month commitment.


    Can I use game cards with this promotion?

    Any qualifying game time added to the account may apply to the 12-month subscription requirement.


    Can I use PayPal to make monthly payments for this promotion?

    No, PayPal is not a valid method of monthly payment for this promotion.


    What if I need to change the credit card for my subscription?

    You may do so through Battle.net account management; doing so should not affect your 12-month commitment.


    I have an active subscription already; what happens to the time I already paid for?

    Any qualifying subscription time remaining on the account at the time of accepting the Annual Pass offer may be applied toward the 12-month subscription commitment.
    For example: If you had started a 6-month subscription 2 months prior to accepting the Annual Pass offer, 4 months of your remaining subscription time would be applied toward your 12-month subscription commitment.


    Can I use the beta-test invite for a beta test of my choosing?

    The beta-test invitation will only be valid for the next World of Warcraft expansion.


    Is the beta-test invitation transferable?

    No, the beta-test invitation is only valid for the Battle.net account associated with this promotion and may not be transferred.
  • Looks like I can't activate "annual pass" since I don't satisfy the following:

    To qualify for this promotion you must be an adult in the United States of America, Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, or Singapore...

    Living in Japan is such a ...

  • wewt success!

  • awww hugs to sofie.

    all because you are not an adult :-D
  • Success! Kinda cool to be rewarded for what you were going to do anyway, in regards to remaining subscribed for the next year.
  • Got mine!
    I love gnomes.
  • Yeah, this seems like a no-brainer to me. I mean you could argue "but what if I feel like taking a break and cancelling my sub at some point in the next year?", but honestly was that going to happen? :p

    Of course, it could be another year before the expansion comes out . . .
  • I'm wondering how long the offer will stand. I think I might hold off until right before Diablo comes out. I would think a year from there should carry through to the next expansion. Too bad you can't pay for the full year at once and get a bigger discount. Also, bummer there's no way to do an upgrade to the collector's edition.

  • It says it's a "limited time offer", so I'd guess days/weeks rather than months.
  • And you have to have had an active account as of Oct 18 to qualify.

    Actually if you read the User Agreement it says if you add a CE of D3 you will be credited 4 months of WoW gametime.

    So you can't create a new account now (after the 18th of October) to subscribe for 12-months BUT if you already have the account and would like to reactivate now (after the 18th of October) you still can. I think. :-D

    Ah, interesting. For anyone else that was too lazy to read the fine print:

  • Sounds like something to check Bioware. ;)

    I'm excited, though, this is a good deal.

  • Yeah, I was happy about this and even happier when I found out that the 1 year commitment didn't require a yearly payment. And it's another way to address their declining subscriber base. If they lock people in for a year now, that'll get the players almost to the next expansion. Sneaky sneaky.
    If you want to stop being called on your bad behavior, stop behaving badly.
  • oh wow I didn't notice that if you get the collectors addition it will comp game time.
    Sandrika, Crazan, Squeatus To often we post in anger, when waiting and thinking and letting that boiling pot settle would be sooo much better.
  • Hmm, this is definitely a good deal since I was going to buy Diablo 3 anyway. I wish they posted a timeline for how long the deal will be available. Can't play WoW in Afghanistan and I probably won't be back until March. Don't want to miss out on the deal (and the mount!), but also don't want to waste 5 months of a year long subscription... I guess if I just went for it the money saved on Diablo 3 would about equal the money wasted on a subscription I can't play, but at least I'd have the mount.
  • namrai, you can give me your account info, and i'll play for you. i promise (finger cross in the back) not to sell any of your valuable stuff on the AH. :-D
  • anyone have an idea when this promotion will end?
  • Just remember that you don't have to pay now. You just have to agree not to cancel your wow account for 12 months.
  • ah ok, i was being cheap and thinking if i'm committed to 12months, might as well pay for 6 months and save I think $2? :-D
  • Don't have to pay now... just agree not to cancel for 12 months... do I detect fear of hemmorhage on the part of Blizzard?
    I used to care... now I take a pill for that...

    In partnership for an idiot-free America...

    Tanks are the only Class/Spec that makes you fight NPCs and members of your group at the same time.
  • Mmmhmmm...Lots of good products coming out. I've so far - with some effort- resisted Skrym & SWTOR beta. I am waiting for Ryse and will likely buy that when it comes out, but I expect physical fitness will put a boundary on my play time.
  • I signed up. I'm unlikely to cancel before the end of the next year so it seemed worth it to take advantage of the offer even if I had no plans to play Diablo 3.

    I did however cancel my second WOW account as i'd finally cleared out enough crap from the banks of my main account that I had room for everything that was on the bank alt account.
  • My rationale was that I haven't been that impressed with Firelands and if Demon Soul doesn't cut it at least I'll get a seat to beta Pandas and play Diablo 3 for a while.
