    The CD keys are a one time use. Once it's used to create an account it will no longer work. You would need to buy another key from wow to start another account.

    I actually don't think you would need a new CD key at all. They have the option to transfer characters to another account so you could always just do that. If you have a lot of characters though it would probably just be cheaper to get a new account.

    Either way, you wouldn't have to buy all of the games again, since you only need 1 CD key to activate the game. You would only need to buy the latest xpac.

    Have you played the game ? I have and i have had many accounts, and everytime i had to buy the original +expansion.(doubt it have changed since they sell those battle chests with all expansions in it.)

    Also. You could always Xfer the character, though that costs 20$/euros. And the actual account really adds for the price.

    Sorry if i misunderstood your post and you meant you only need the original + expansions. But they all have cd key though.

    If you want to transfer your characters to the new account,your new account must match the original account information (except the email).

    Lets say you have 8 characters,and the buyer is interested in only 1 or 2 of the characters.What you do is you tell the buyer that he is responsible for buying the new account and transfer costs.
    Its you sell him full account and your done playing or you sell him 1 or more characters by him paying the new account and transfers and you keeping your account.

    Yes I've been playing the game since it came out however many years ago that was. I've had to reinstall it many times during that period and from what I remember, they only ask you for the CD key when you go to activate the account to play online. When you're just installing the disks, they don't require the key yet.

    So what he could do, is install the original WoW, but don't activate the account to go online until he installs all the subsequent xpacs leading up to the most recent. Then, once every xpac is installed and he's up to the most recent version, he will need to put in the CD key just from Cataclysm (or whichever xpac he's using), in order to get back online.

    So therefore, he would only need to repurchase 1 cd key, not all of them.

    This is only vaguely accurate. Everyone has the same content installed regardless of what CD they are on or they can't login.

    Once you sell your account, those CD keys are gone. You can download the game from a torrent, get a copy of the Cataclysm CD, or whatever you want to do--however, you will HAVE to buy all the expansions again to get past 60.

    By just buying the first game again, you can indeed get back online, but you can't get past 60 and you can't go to certain zones or make anything other than the original character set (no belfs, worgens, etc) or use certain professions.

    In other words, you'll have all of the game installed whether you buy the first CD or all the expansions in one go--you just won't have access to it on your account in any form. Basically, all the cool stuff is gone.

    I hope this helps! Selling WoW accounts and gold used to be my specialty before affiliate marketing. :rolleyes:

    No you will need to buy all the games.

    why else would they sell these.
