A welcome back weekend is an event where all inactive World of Warcraft accounts are upgraded for a short period (usually around a weekend), granting returning players full access to the game* and all their characters—including the latest trial experience, for those who don’t own the latest expansion.
* Offer available through stated end date (most recently March 24, 2019). Player is responsible for any online connection fees. Game access will be granted at the last expansion purchased or World of Warcraft®: Legion® (previously Warlords of Draenor), whichever is greater. The Battle for Azeroth trial experience ends after three hours of game play in Battle for Azeroth, or after the quest "" (for Horde) or "" (for Alliance), whichever comes first. Players can repeat the trial experience with up to 12 characters per qualifying account during the welcome back weekend.
