World of Warcraft: Legion is scheduled to release worldwide on August 30. However, Blizzard Entertainment has announced a way through which some players can begin accessing content sooner than that.
On August 9, anyone who has pre-ordered the Legion expansion pack is going to gain access to the new playable Demon Hunter class. While you’ll be able to roam around as the new class to become accustomed to the new kit and fighting capabilities, it’s uncertain whether early buyers will also be able to play through some of the new content before the official launch.

All Demon Hunters are going to start their journey from level 98. In order to be able to create a Demon Hunter, it’s mandatory for you to have at least a level 70 character on the same realm. That hardly seems like a challenge since putting in an early purchase is going to net you a free level 100 boost that can be used on any level 1 character to instantly boost him/her to level 100.
Legion may officially launch at the end of the month but the pre-patch with all major changes has already been released. If your game is updated to the new patch, you’re Legion-ready. This may also make it possible that from August 9 onward, Blizzard will begin scheduled events that are going to pave way to the Legion’s demonic invasion on August 30.
