Yes folks, it's that time of the year again. The precious few seconds where you cast your virtual die
and hope beyond hope that you're a special enough snowflake to get a BlizzCon ticket.
The basic facts:
- Tickets go on sale at 10:00 p.m. EDT / 7:00 p.m. PDT sharp.
- Tickets are $150/each. You can purchase a max of 5 per household.
- Buy your tickets at the Blizzard store.
- Tips for buying your tickets.
- Complain about how expensive tickets are, how rogues are over powered, and how Ghostcrawler has no choice but to walk out on a horse swinging a sword like a general over in our open thread.
