  1. I keep having to try blocking emails by Blizzard because they think I have a WoW account, when I don’t. I still get them.

    • those will more than likely be phishing emails trying to get you to log in with your wow account so they can steal all your gold/items if you did have an account

    • Definitely a phising scam.

  2. ….but I’m banished from Sanctuary? *cough Blind Guardian*

    Anyway, hope its good….

  3. Urgh, I feel like a complete dorkus….. I’ve never-ever activated my beta profile on battlenet. I’ve had an account with them for over a decade with Diablo II and from that confused period of my life where I played WoW for about 5 mins.
    Feel really stupid :(

  4. Good news, been waitin for this game for years!!!!
