What happens if you already have activated your D3 key at Battle.net and afterwards activate a D3 CE key? Is it even possible on 1 account?

You will be given the product code of your original license to use with a different account.

If you purchased Diablo III Standard Edition and you upgrade it to the Collector's Edition, a Diablo III Standard Edition key may be sent to a battle.net account of your friend.


You will overwrite your D3 standard edition with your CE. Afterwards, you can contact Blizzard's support department - they state that in most situations you will get a new key for a D3 standard edition e.g. to give away.

See this blue post:

(...) Alternatively, you can get the digital version now, play right at midnight, overwrite your license with your CE when you pick it up, and then contact our support department. In most situations they'll be able to grant you a new standard key, which you can then give to a friend, or whatever.


You will still have one account. Your D3 account will be upgraded to a D3 Collector's Edition account. I saw this mention in a past Blizzard Post. Not to mention, I have tested this idea with WoW. I went went from a standard WoW Cata account to a WoW Cata CE. It was smooth.
