So I got the digital edition of the battle chest last night with BC and Wrath of the Lich King in it. When I log in I use the the WoW 2 account, it doesn't say starter edition anymore in the top left corner, it says Wrath of the Lich King and wants me to upgrade to Cataclysm, but when I log in and actually start playing I still can't talk, or trade. When I try to trade or talk it says starter edition accounts cannot perform that action which is confusing me since I upgraded digitally. I know it's not immediate but I thought I would at least be able to trade and it is the next day. Is there anything I can do or did I do something wrong? Or should I just wait?

Thanks.

I knew all of that but when I try to do anything it says, «starter edition accounts cannot perform that action.» That was just making me think that it didn't upgrade or something.

Thanks

Exactly, because those would be the limited functions for the 72 hours.

The text is a tad misleading — but effectively for those functions it is still a starter account.

If your leveling can go past 20, which it should once upgraded, it's just a matter of time before the rest of the functionality kicks in.

I bought the battle chest and in stalled it but it still says im a starter edition and its been 5 days but I still cant pass lvl 20

Did you purchase the Battle Chest from a retail store, Dejaanns? I don't see any purchases on your Battle.net account from the Blizzard Store.

In order to upgrade you must do more than just install the game. What you have access to depends on your account, not the game client you are using.

If you purchased a retail copy you should have a CD/Authentication key available, you'll need to upgrade your current starter edition with that key. Log into the Account Management page and click the Add a Game Key in the Games & Codes drop down.

Make sure you select your current World of Warcraft account to upgrade and don't create a new one. As long as you do that you'll be able to continue leveling the characters you have already been working on.

I bought the battle chest an 1 month o game time but when i try to trade it says i have starter edition its been one week

That is strange, Zauno, I can confirm that the account upgrade took place over a week ago. I don't see any reason why you would not have the ability to trade.

I gave the account a nudge to see if that has any impact. Please let me know.
