Common Problems

I cannot purchase a game time subscription with my Blizzard Balance; is there another way I can do this?

World of Warcraft subscriptions are recurring payments that recharge once the current game time expires. Some payment methods, such as Blizzard Balance, are not suitable for these types of recurring purchases. If you wish to use one of those payment methods, you can purchase game time from the Blizzard Shop. Since this game time is not recurring, you will need to purchase more when it expires.

When purchasing game time, you can either Buy or Gift. The Buy option will automatically attach game time to the account, and the Gift option will generate a code that is emailed to a selected email.

Note: Gifting is not possible for purchases made with Russian Roubles.
