World of Warcraft Battle Chest is a collection of World of Warcraft products released by Blizzard Entertainment on October 15, 2013. It combines the DVD versions of World of Warcraft and its first three expansions World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade, World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King and World of Warcraft: Cataclysm with the BradyGames strategy guides for the World of Warcraft title, in one package at a suggested retail price of $20.00 in the United States and €9.99 in Europe. Retail stores are still selling this version of the Battle Chest since the beginning of 2018.

Since the release of Battle for Azeroth, the Battle Chest has become obsolete due to Blizzard adding every expansion up to Legion to the base game, this means that it now only requires users to start a subscription or get game time to start playing up to level 110.


In 2017, the Battle Chest contents were changed once again to include the authentication key on the Quickstart Guide instead of the disc packaging.
