I originally pre-ordered the DDE version but today I decided that I want the CE instead. Im I able to transfer the DDE key to someone else to create an account with and upgrade my account to CE, or will I have to lose the DDE to upgrade?

I think that will be a call to CS to ask, but would probably wait until after the launch busy period has died down, unless you want to wait for 3 hours on hold.

I bet they'll be busy!

I just mail ordered the CE version today for normal delivery speed so it won't be here any time soon any ways.

Well, if you make a new account, and give the old one to someone else, it has the pre-order code items registered with it, so that could solve the question.

Otherwise you need to cancel your DDE Order to upgrade.

That's my working knowledge of the subject anyway.
Cathar? Pshaw! That's so last patch. Give us Shistavanen, or give us Death!

From what i read on pre-forum wipe threads, all you will have to do is enter your CD Key for the CE over the top of your existing DDE Key, and it will automatically upgrade.

I would although contact customer service anyway to confirm this, as You would not want to mess up your existing account needlessly.

Hope that helps.

As long as you haven't redeemed your dde game code (not the pre-order code), you can use that on another account.

This but finding a CE at this time is probably going to be rather difficult.

GameStop seemed to have them, but then I haven't gotten a ship notice yet so...

I have no doubt that this will successfully upgrade the account, but this would also trash the DDE. I'm hoping to find a way to pull the DDE off the account and give it to a friend so that the $80 isn't wasted. Will have to call CS when/if my CE arrives.

Their FAQ says that you can upgrade your edition at any time.

I did the same as you and searched for this answer for a while.
