Welcome! It's a good day to be one of the few remaining human beings who isn't playing World of Warcraft.
While previously players who set up a new trial account were limited by 14 days of playtime and
a level cap, Blizzard announced today that players on any trial account are able to play the game forever for free
. The catch, of course, is that players are capped at level 20 until they upgrade. You can try out any of the races and classes available up through The Burning Crusade
expansion, including the blood elves and draenei, with no time limit and no limit on characters created.
If you do get the hankering for more WoW
thanks to the trial, you can get the digital Battle Chest, which includes classic WoW
and The Burning Crusade
, for $19.99 (as soon as the Blizzard site works again, anyway).
