There is no download after you put the key in you log into the game and you will have the redemption tickets in your characters inventory.
I have edited my original post ( didn't know how to reply to assistance attempt (im a newbee)
ALL right!! I think it worked!! BUT... Before I start I have a few more questions... 1) When I purchase a new computer will I have to do anything to play the expansion?? (shadowfell) 2)If I want to use the bonus materials (goggles, tomes , pets) on my new character (Bladeforged Paladin Iconic Hero ) will I have to wait till Aug. to log on??!! or can I exchange these items between characters?? 3)can I play my original characters in the Shadowfell expansion?? I am hoping for a speedy answer so I can get to Playing & Enjoying the AWSOME game you Geniuses have provided me.!!
2) Pets are account wide it does not matter what toon first uses them.
The goggles and other cosmetic items are bound to account so if you have the shared bank you can transfer them between toons.
3) The expansion will just add more quests so you can play any toon that is high enough level to get to them.
I bought the pre-order standard edition. I used the product key that Turbine supplied and followed their instructions. It appears rhat I followed the instructions correctly and my account confirms that by saying those features are already active on my account when i try to follow the instructions a second time. I have not recieved the extra character slot, the cosmetics or any of the features referred to in the standard pack. I rebooted my computer and game yet still nothing. The quest screen for shadow and doubt has changed it pops up now and I can select a difficulty which it did not previously, but it does not let me enter the quest.

This doesn't directly affect me but is something I'm curious about; if you already have the maximum number of character slots (30) on your account, what happens to the free slots you get from the expansion pack?
First, the information about the Shadowfell Conspiracy packs at ddo.com appears to contain incorrect information about the iconics.
The writeup of the Collector's Edition and the writeup of the Standard Edition both state that the buyer will receive "3 additional Iconic Heroes". But in the 'Compare Editions' chart lower on the page, while all three Iconics are listed as part of the Collector's Edition, only one of the three (the PDK) is marked as being part of the Standard Edition.
After browsing the forums about this, I eventually found my way to the DDO Market page for Shadowfell, and after carefully comparing the pages for the two editions, the DDO Market agrees with the chart; it says the Standard Edition will grant the PDK, but not the Shadar-Kai Assassin or Morninglord.
Second, I have been trying to figure out how many character slots I can expect to get from each of the two editions. My current understanding is that pre-ordering the Standard Edition will give me two more slots: 1 base and one included with the Bladeforged. Likewise, I gather pre-ordering the Collector's Edition will give me four more slots: 3 base and one included with the Bladeforged.
If that is incorrect, I'd sure like to know it ASAP.
I'd also be curious to know whether the additional character slot included with the Bladeforged can only be occupied by a BF or can be re-tasked freely. Doesn't really matter to me, as a 15th level BF makes as good a storage mule as anybody... but I'd still be curious.
Thanks for the feedback, Alistina!
About Character Slots: The Standard Edition comes with one character slot, and the Collector's Edition comes with three character slots. Additionally, if you pre-purchase either edition prior to August 19th, you'll get an additional character slot with the Bladeforged. You do not have to use this slot to make a Bladeforged character. All of the Character Slots are available to use to create any class you have the ability to make.
According to the loading screen for the new expansion, if you pre-purchased the expansion before June 5th, you would have guaranteed access to the beta.. But here's a question, when IS the beta exactly? The longer we wait, the less time you'd have to fix all the bugs we're sure to find (and allegedly, there's still bugs originating from the last expansion floating around).
If I've already received the Shadowfell conspiracy goodies in-game, will I automatically be able to get into the beta (assuming it's being done on lama like before)? Or is there another code I need to apply to my account before I could be granted access to said beta?

not sure if its been mentioned before but is there a way to buy just the legendary upgrade?
i had a friend gift me a collectors edition but now id like the upgrade and obviously dont want to have to buy the collectors again for no reason
Here's my question:
I'm intrigued by the Shadar-kai Iconic, but I have no interest in the rest of the Collector's Edition. Will all the iconic heroes be available for purchase individually at some point?
Thelanis - Dragons of the Shire
Naeryna (Sun Elf 24 FvS Evoker) // Dianocia (Drow 11 Buckler o' Swashes) // Valissia (Elf 22 Shiradi Druid)
