What Happens if you Lose your World of Warcraft CD Keys?

By: Muna wa Wanjiru

If you have bought any of the World of Warcraft games you will find that the activation key for the game is to be found on the CD itself. These are generally known to all and sundry as World of Warcraft CD keys.

These World of Warcraft CD keys along with the CD's are the ones that people are trying to circumvent by using Warcraft cracks. This will enable them to be mobile with their Warcraft games without having to take along their World of Warcraft CD keys or CD's.

This is however, not a recommended practice as Blizzard, the creators of all things Warcraft, do not smile upon this. What happens if you lose your World of Warcraft CD keys? There have been many people who have asked this question in the many different Warcraft forums, and the answer is always simple.

If you have your original Warcraft game CD then you should be able to find the World of Warcraft CD keys on the CD itself, as you might remember if you cast yourself back to those pre-Warcraft days when you first bought and installed your game. If you've lost your original game CD then you've also unfortunately lost your World of Warcraft CD keys as well.

World of Warcraft CD keys can also be used for guest users. These users won't have a regular World of Warcraft account but will instead play using a guest account. This means that they will need to enter active World of Warcraft CD keys every time they want to log in to play.

These World of Warcraft CD keys will each cost a certain amount and give you a set time of playing hours. Once you have exhausted these hours you will then need to buy World of Warcraft CD keys again to activate your guest account.

Normally when you purchase World of Warcraft CD keys you will be able to play for about 30 days. This is sometimes referred to as "free" playing time. This is of course different from the World of Warcraft demo version which you can download and play for 10 days free of charge.

With World of Warcraft CD keys after your time has run out, you will then need to purchase what is referred to as a time card, or a gametime card. These are prepaid cards which allow you to play World of Warcraft for a limited number of days. This is not the same as obtaining World of Warcraft CD keys, and you will need to have an active World of Warcraft account to do this.
