The Warlords of Draenor Collector's Edition may not be the cheapest way to go about getting the upcoming World of Warcraft expansion, but fans with a taste for swag will no doubt want to take a moment to at least consider the option.

Revealed yesterday , the collector's edition includes the full version of the Warlords of Draenor expansion, of course, but also comes with a two-disc "Behind the Scenes" DVD/Blu-ray set, a soundtrack CD, a 160-page Art of Warlords of Draenor book and a Blackhand mouse pad. There's bonus in-game content as well: The Dread Raven Mount and Dread Hatchling Pet, a pair of StarCraft II portraits, the Diablo III Warsong Pennant and a unique Hearthstone card back.

It's a pricey option, listing for $90 at Gamestop , but such is the way of collector's editions. The package also includes a single level 90 character boost, although as you may recall that's something we don't recommend you take advantage of .

So what do you think? Is this the sort of package that tempts you to open your wallet, or will you carve a slightly less extravagant path through history? Either way, World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor comes out on November 13 .
