Early Birthday, or "I Got My Netherwhelps!"

Last month, I told you about how I asked my mom for the Burning Crusade Collector's Edition for my birthday (which is in November) for an account-load of Netherwhelps.

I found the unused keycode only for $25 on Amazon and poked and prodded her to get it right away, because that was all I wanted.

The guy emailed it to her and she forwarded it to me. ^_^

So this is what you do:

You Have an Unused Collector's Edition Keycode
but you also have a non-collector's edition version of the game installed
  • Call Customer Support.
  • Wait 10-20 minutes listening to very loud hold music.
  • Talk to a very friendly support person and tell them "I have the collector's edition code but I already have the regular version. So I'd like to upgrade my keycode to the collector's edition version."
  • The support person says "Of course!" and asks for the following information:
    • Your name.
    • Your login (account) name.
    • The name that the account belongs to. (This must be your name.)
    • Your secret question answer.
  • Once that's all verified, you give the nice support person the new keycode and they repeat it back to you.
  • They make sure you know that your original keycode can't be reused, and as long as you still want to go ahead knowing that, they activate the new one on your account.
  • "Next time you log in, you should have your netherwhelps in the mail on all existing characters!"
I left out my general squealing and profuse gratitude, but the support lady was extremely nice and seemed genuinely excited for me. I ran to my computer after I hung up and logged onto Birdfall and found a Netherwhelp in her mail, and tried it on two other characters who also had them. Then I wondered if all my new characters would get one too, so I made a random blood elf guy and he had the same mail. Then I hopped on Dustfire to squee to my guild and take another screenshot. XD

So this is confirmed. It totally works.


  1. Oh wow thats great! :) I know the feeling in WoW when you finally achieve something you've been wanting. Congrats and thank you for the useful walkthrough :D

  2. I just wanted to say I love your blog. I've been lurking for a little over a year now. Even though my love of WoW has waned in lieu of my love of good grades, I still adore the game and really appreciate your advice and insight. So, yeah, that's all! XD

    ^-^ Yay for readers!

    It's always nice to know I'm not just prattling to myself (and my husband, who I force to read every single post).
