My son got some money for xmas so he was thrilled to be able to upgrade from his trial account to the War chest (standard edition) Wrath of the Lich King. We followed the instructions and downloaded the digital things and he has continued adventuring with his characters he started in the trial version and one is now on level 23 so its clear his paid subscription is working. I think he was expecting more of a fanfare when he started going beyond level 20 but I suspect being used to the trial version he has kind of become used to it all.
Are there any things he should be aiming for that will really make his upgrade worthwhile? I guess he should just keep plugging away getting to the higher levels. Getting a flying mount is his goal!
Also how do the different editions separate each other? If we have wrath of the lich king how does that limit your play in the realm? Does your entry mean you don't overlap with people who are playing other versions such as Mists of Pandaria? Or is the world all open and depending on which one you bought you have different restrictions?
