Protecting My Investment

My account was created at 10:59:03 AM, November 23rd, 2004 - the day World of Warcraft launched. Having had some beta experience, I knew WoW was a game I was going to spend a lot of time playing, and I wanted a Zergling pet so bad, so I dropped the $70 and preordered the Collector's Edition.

I did the same on October 28th, 2005, for the release of The Burning Crusade, and again on November 13th, 2008 for Wrath of the Lich King.

My account has been inactive for exactly one month to date since the original release (and not by choice, I assure you). I estimate, all said and done, that I've spent somewhere around $900 between box purchases and monthly fees.

I also spent $6.50 on a Blizzard Authenticator. They didn't even charge me shipping.

They work, and they're worth it. If you possess six dollars and fifty cents but not a Blizzard Authenticator, ur doin it rong.

(EU doods: This is your link. It says they cost EUR 6,00 or £4.80. I don't know what that means but I'm betting that's not much either.)

What I always was wondering about... what if that thing breaks? Just stops working, or falls down in a very unfortunate way? How do you unlock your account again? Maybe I'm blind and missed that piece of information, but that's the main reason I didn't order one half a year ago, and still haven't.
