Can I play all WoW content with just the Battle chest?
I just got the World of Warcraft Battle chest last year, and I just got to play it. So I installed it. It took me to battle.net, I made an account, and clicked some starter edition option. I logged in and played, no problem. My question is: am I playing the battle chest, and do I have everything including the Burning Crusade and Wrath of the Lich King?
The World of Warcraft battle chest includes all of the expansions up to and including Wrath of the Lich King, however, a starter edition subscription only allows you to level up to level 20. In order to progress past this point you will need a subscription.
The battle chest will let you level up to level 80 with a subscription, and play all of the content up to Wrath of the Lich King. Of you want to continue levelling past this point you will also need both the Cataclysm and Mists of Pandaria expansions.
