I am assuming the answer is yes. Amazon messed up and my collector edition boxes are floating around somewhere in space. I'm actually contemplating buying a digital upgrade for one of my accounts, then calling CSR to upgrade the upgrade when the CE boxes finally arrive.
I would rather not pay the extra for useless upgrade that's going to be upgraded when the CE boxes get here...
The problem is that I'd really like to try for the realm first fishing achievement of strength.
So, the question is: Do I need Cata upgrade to train my fishing to be able to fish to 525?
I'm so annoyed at Amazon... SOOOO annoyed.
