oh btw, does anyone have one of these referals I can use? I've been trying to justify joining but the S.O. won't let me. If it's free she can't complain (for the first 10 days at least).

From the OP's link...

Got a mate who hasn't played WoW yet? Blizzard are in the process of giving out free 10 hour packs to new players (through their friends which already play WoW). If your mate signs up, you get a free month!
so it looks like 10 hours and NOT 10 days.

JUST KIDDING... I just went straight to the WoW website and this is what is posted:

anybody know a way for me to get ISOs of the CDs or DVD for this game? I've been leeching for 5 days now and I'm only at about 30%. anybody know where I can find an activatable demo or just the ISO's to download or maybe someone could just host them on a large file server for me? fyi (for mods too) it's not illegal to distribute if the ISOs still require a key.

If you can find the beta somewhere, you can use that. Maybe FilePlanet has it.

nope, couldn't find the beta anywhere on fileplanet or through google. i think they pulled it after the full version came out. anyone still have the beta? or anyone feel like being generous to me and ISO the install discs for me?

does anyone have a 10 day guest pass code I could use. I have never played a game like this, but want to get into one. I just don't want to shell out the $15 until I know it is good. Please PM me the code. Thanks

If you have a copy of the game to install, I'd be happy to give you my free trial code to test out the game. Hopefully you'll fall in love and I'll get some free time out of the deal too. :)

Send me a PM for the code, but please be sure you have access to the game CDs first.

Says who? Far as I know it is still illegal.
this whole marketting scheme is based of people giving other people copies of the software. how can bliz expect people to get their friends hooking on WoW without copying the software?

anyway when you buy software you're buying a box a cd and a key. look at adobe and macromedia. you can download photoshop in it's entirety, fully functional software and adobe gives you a free 30 day key for it, but after that you need to buy a set of twenty something letters and numbers to activate it for $500. you pay for the right to use it, not the discs (or disk images).

You still need to buy the key. You can't even utilise the key on a used game if it has been activated. Once the key is used, it belongs to that account and the account doesn't expire, even if you stop paying.

You can probably get around this if you have a friend who has stopped playing and you take over payment on his account.

I just researched this as I am heading out after work to purchase my own copy.

The way I see it I am happy to shell out money to a gaming company that has both the Mac version and Windows out at the same time and in the same box! :)

What i did is i asked my friend to borrow his WoW software and installed in on my computer while using AoWolf's free trial key and im up and running playing the game:)
Does anyone know if those keys can also be used on European WoW software? I ask because im gonna create an additional account on a Euro server just wanted to know before i get another trial key.

It's a pity that EVE: Online isn't for Mac yet. I'm certain it would take a significant chunk of players away from WoW (personal opinion).

Does anybody please have one of those trial keys?

Please can somebody help me get one of those keys, I have the European version so have the CD's, but want to get onto the US servers to join my clan who have migrated over to Arthas from Deathwing for some reason. But I can't get the US version until I’ve sorted out everything for the holidays. So if anybody could please help me I would be very grateful :) .

BTW, would anybody who gave me a key be able to get the free month if I didn't make an account out of the trial straight away, because I do plan to make it into an account but it might not be for a few weeks after :(
