Buy the Diablo 3 collector's edition, add four months to the WoW annual pass free

Blizzard announced so many deals, expansions and Pokemon things yesterday that there was bound to be some confusion. Today at a Q&A panel, Diablo 3 developers clarified the meta-deal it has with World of Warcraft's annual pass -- purchasing the Diablo 3 collector's edition adds four free months to the World of Warcraft annual pass timeframe. We knew buying the annual pass gets existing WoW players Diablo 3 for free, but it turns out the feeling is mutual.

To be completely clear, to get Diablo 3 for free, you must:
  • Have a WoW account existing on or before Oct. 18, 2011
  • Purchase the WoW annual pass
  • Enjoy your free standard version of Diablo 3, available at launch on your Battle.net account
To get four months of WoW for free, you must:
  • Purchase the Diablo 3 collector's edition
  • Have a WoW account existing on or before Oct. 18, 2011
  • Purchase the WoW annual pass
  • Enter the Diablo 3 collector's edition license key into your associated Battle.net account
  • Enjoy a grapefruit
Maybe not that last one, but you should check the annual pass FAQs just to be sure. Besides, you look as if you could use some Vitamin A.
