Digital Bundles and Optional services are also available for purchase in the shop to help players on their journey to the Outland and prepare them for the battle when the Dark Portal opens:

Dark Portal Pass: Players can use this to boost a character of their choice to level 58 (limited to one per account; new races excluded; Burning Crusade Classic realms only), where they will be equipped with gear, mount, consumables, and some gold—everything they need to be able to jump through the Dark Portal at launch

Deluxe Edition: This includes the Dark Portal Pass, 30 days of game time, a Reawakened Phase-Hunter mount for Burning Crusade Classic and a higher-fidelity Viridian Phase-Hunter for modern WoW players, a Dark Portal Hearthstone, and Path of Illidan toy. 

Character Clone: This optional service lets people play a copy of an existing WoW Classic character on both a Burning Crusade Classic server and a Classic Era server
