In our latest post, we try to answer some of your questions about the Collector's Edition of Dragonflight and show you how to get the in-game goodies without waiting before the physical version ships.
In-Game Goodies and Dragonflight Collector's Edition
If you pre-order the Collector's Edition of Dragonflight, you have two options when it comes to the in-game goodies that came with the pre-orders.
You will either wait for the physical version of the game to ship or buy the digital version of the game and request a reimbursement for the difference through Blizzard.
Blizzard will automatically refund you the cost of your digital purchase in Battle.net Balance if you buy the Base, Heroic, or Epic version of Dragonflight, but you must redeem your Collector's Edition code before December 31, 2023, according to the official website.
Note that you will only be reimbursed Battle.net Balance and the money will not return to your bank account, so you'll have to spend it on other Blizzard products. (Source)
Can the Physical Copy of Dragonflight Be Pre-Ordered with Battle.net Balance?
The short answer is no. You cannot pay for the Collector's Edition of Dragonflight with Battle.net Balance. The currency is tied to Blizzard games, not the Gear Store where the physical version is sold.
Will the Collector's Edition of Dragonflight Be Available at Retailers?
The Dragonflight Collector's Edition is currently only offered through the Blizzard Gear Store. Naturally, many people ask if it will be sold through other retailers like Amazon or Gamestop. Blizzard hasn't provided a stance on the matter and we do not know the answer. However, the pre-order announcement is relatively fresh and chances are retailers will list it soon.
Both Battle for Azeroth and Shadowlands Collector's Editions were available on Amazon once they were announced, which doesn't appear to be the case with Dragonflight right now.
For more information about the Collector's Edition of Shadowlands, you can read Blizzard's official blog post.
