Will upgrading from Starter with CD-Keys be faster than digital?
Return to board index
I have heard that for all of the limits on starter accounts to be removed after a digital upgrade using the Blizzard Store it can take up to 3 days. I also have commonly seen veteran players say that this is due to payment processing time. So does anyone else know for sure if retail keys would be more like 3 minutes than 3 days, or is it just always around 3 days for a Starter to Battlechest upgrade?
Answering my own question since no one else could / would at least for me it took less than 5 minutes or so after entering the codes for Vanilla, and Cata. Not sure on exact time but when I started the client and logged in a few minutes later it was fully unlocked.
I do not guarantee that this will hold true for everyone but it was so for me.
Retail keys have always worked immediately, as far as I know, since there isn't anything that needs to be processed. A retail key is either valid or not.
