Update: Forgot to mention that those who pre-order the MOP Collector’s Edition will automatically get an email with a redeem code to access Mists of Pandaria beta.

I had a conversation with Amazon representative Shridath to find out whether they are still accepting pre-orders of the World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria Collector’s Edition. The response was they are still accepting these pre-orders, and better yet — at the moment of placing the other make sure to look for the Release-Date Delivery option.

Basically, Amazon will ship the product on September 22 or earlier so that it arrives on September 25th.

I really recommend our visitors to pre-order online or at your local store ASAP. I have always pre-ordered Collector’s Editions months in advance. However, for giveaway copies I have attended local Best Buy and Gamestop stores at launch date with very grim results. You won’t be given a Collector’s Edition unless you have pre-ordered when you attend the store on launch date. Read my experience with the Diablo III Collector’s Edition at Best Buy Union Square (New York City). This is your last opportunity. Otherwise, you might be among thousands of players rushing eBay and placing obscene high bids.

Shridath:Yes, I can confirm that people still pre-order this item with release date delivery option. Release-day delivery option may be available at checkout for most continental U.S. addresses.

Pre-order your copy of World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria Collector’s Edition now and add the release-date delivery option.

Note: If you forgot to set the delivery-day option when you pre-ordered, simply cancel that order, and pre-order again with the option enabled. (USA only) — instructions provided by the Amazon representative.
