Advance orders of Blizzard's next installment in the never-ending World of Warcraft story, Warlords of Draenor, will earn customers a mount, a pet and a boost to level 90.

In a post on Blizzard's, the developers announced the deal.

From the outset, players will find themselves hurled into a chaotic conflict with the Iron Horde at a new Dark Portal on Draenor. The situation for Azeroth is grim, and the war effort needs heroes—from new recruits to retired champions to warriors still tending wounds earned at the Siege of Orgrimmar. To get everyone straight to the action, when you buy the expansion, it will come with a boost to level 90 for one character on your WoW account. We’re getting ready to test the functionality for that on the PTR, and we wanted to provide a quick update on how it will work with the upcoming expansion presales.

Blizzard also revealed that they are considering making character boosts purchasable, so that lapsed or new players can catch up to the game's end content without spending the thirty-two years it takes to get there.

We’ve also heard feedback from players that they’d be interested in boosting multiple characters to 90, including alts they play with friends on other factions and realms. We’ve been evaluating ways to make that possible without having players go through roundabout methods (such as purchasing multiple boxes and performing multiple character transfers), and in the near future we’ll be testing out a feature that gives you the option to purchase a character upgrade directly.

Warlords of Draenor
sees players return to the titular homeworld of the orcs and draenei, and contains lots of new content including dungeons and raids. It also updates character models and graphics, giving Warcraft's aging graphics a little perk-up.
