Blizzard has added an in-game store to the World of Warcraft client, meaning you no longer need to alt-tab out to the web-based store when you espy a mount or pet you simply cannot live without.

Pets and mounts are currently on sale, by the way.

The base World of Warcraft game package now includes second-most-recent expansion Cataclysm at no extra cost. Previously called the Battle Chest, the pack includes the original release plus early expansions The Burning Crusade and Wrath of the Lich King as well as the world-changing Cataclysm, and has a North American RRP of $20 – not bad when you consider the MMORPG is free-to-play to level 20, although you’ll probably want to shell out for latest add-on Mists of Pandaria, too. All features from the first three expansions are now free to all subscribers at no extra cost. You’ll be able to pick up the new pack in stores soon, or you can grab it directly from Blizzard’s store immediately.
