BlizzCon® season is upon us, and whether you’re attending the show in person or tuning in to the news and excitement online, we want you to have access to the full experience. Starting today, you can pre-purchase a BlizzCon Goody Bag through the Blizzard Gear Store and have it shipped directly to your home in time to celebrate the show. Claim yours while supplies last!

You don’t need a Virtual Ticket to order, but as a bonus, Virtual Ticket holders can pre-purchase the Goody Bag at an automatically discounted price of $45. Just log in to the Blizzard Gear Store on the Blizzard account you used to purchase your Virtual Ticket. Supplies are limited, so be sure to grab one while you have a chance!
This year’s Goody Bag, available for $55 ($45 for Virtual Ticket holders), includes:
- A Heroes of the Storm® Raven Lord Crest Magnet
- A Classic Diablo® Vinyl Figure
- A StarCraft® 20th Anniversary Pin
- A World of Warcraft® Faction Keychain
- An Overwatch® Challenge Coin
- A set of Hearthstone® Magnets
And the centerpiece: a hardcover copy of The BlizzCon Book: A Celebration of Our Community
How to Pre-Purchase a Goody Bag
Once you’re logged in to the Gear Store, visit the Goody Bag page to begin the pre-purchase process.
The Goody Bag is expected to ship out prior to BlizzCon in late October. If you’re in Europe or the Americas, your Goody Bag order will ship from the Europe and North America Gear Stores respectively. Not all countries may be eligible to participate, and international shipping rates and other fees may apply. For more information, including how to find out if the Gear Store ships to your region, see the Blizzard Gear Store Shipping article on our support site.
BlizzCon attendees will receive the Goody Bag with their ticket. If you want to pre-purchase an extra Goody Bag at a $10 discount, you can redeem the Virtual Ticket code that was emailed to ticket buyers and follow the process above.
