If World of Warcraft's Cataclysm expansion has finally piqued your interest in jumping into Blizzard's massive-multiplayer online role-playing game, right now may be most fiscally sound time to invest in WoW.

Blizzard is selling the first three releases in the six-year-old series for a pittance. Just five bucks for World of Warcraft, another five for The Burning Crusade expansion and a ten spot for the Wrath of the Lich King add-on. This is a much better deal than the fifty bucks some of us shelled out for the original WoW. The offer runs until November 30, the week before Cataclysm hits storeshelves and unlocks via Blizzard's digital distribution.

World of Warcraft Cataclysm will set users of US dollars back another $39.99 when it launches and subscription fees run $12.99 to $14.99 per month. Obviously, that adds up rather quickly, but if you're looking for a starter package, this is the way to go.
