You can either buy it on stores or online.

For stores, just go to a brick and mortar store and see if they have Warlords of Draenor (the latest expansion, it contains all previous expansions)

You can buy the physical box from amazon as well.

But! I highly suggest you buy it directly from Blizzard at http://us.battle.net/wow/en/shop/

it will come with 1 month of subscription and then you have to either buy more gaming time in a store in the form of a time card, or with Battlenet balance, or just register a valid credit card.

After that you are good to go, the Base already has the complete game downloaded. You can continue with your character wherever you left off, and venture in the world of warcraft.

    +1, Good and thorough answer. Only things I would add are that the expansions semi-frequently go on sale, and the base game right now includes everything up to level 90, so feel free to hold off on buying the expansion. It does come with a free level 90 boost, though, if you want to experience high level content ASAP.

  • Always check your local retailer, first. It is not uncommon for local retailers to sell the physical copy cheaper then the online store.

  • You may also find that the original WoW already comes with Burning Crusade and Wrath of the Lich King. Here in Australia, you can only find them together, as a Battle Chest. Still, you can easily find it for $20.
