Hey, does anybody know where I can get WoW Collector's Edition online? I don't live in the USA...

Also, does anybody know if I'll have trouble subscribing with my NON-USA credit card??

Thanks

As from what I've heard you're pretty much out of luck. Even pre-orders have been canceled. Showing up early in stores seems to be the only way... or pre-ordering the Euro version ;)

There could be extreme troubles. They won't let you. Unless it's an Australian or NZ card. But I'm not sure wether they classify Central America to North America in this case. I wouldn't be too sure of that though.
You shouldn't ask yourself such worthless questions. Aim higher. Try this: why am I here? Why do I exist, and what is my purpose in this universe?

(Answers: 'Cause you are. 'Cause you do. 'Cause I got a shotgun, and you ain't got one.)

I wrote Blizzard Support about this and they told me that Mexico was considered part of the initial rollout, so if you live there, you're in luck.  Further south, I can't say.

I think you should just contact Blizzard Accounts Support and ask 'em.  It would be stupid of them to cut off folks like yourself.

I'll likely be out at the malls and stores this week, so I'll keep an eye out for any LE sets.
If I find any, I'll buy a few and report back.  No promises though.

Wow with all this talk about the limited release (thus far) of the CE, I'm now surprised mine came through from Gamestop.com (free 1 day shipping) with no hitches whatsoever.  Maybe it varies by retailer website.  Good luck to those still looking.
