BlizzCon 2014 In-Game Goodies Sneak Peek

It’s time to take a sneak peek at this year’s BlizzCon in-game goodies for World of Warcraft, StarCraft II, Diablo III*, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, and the upcoming Heroes of the Storm**—they’re yours whether you’re attending the show in person or watching from home with the Virtual Ticket.

World of Warcraft – Grommloc Pet
Watch your foes flee in terror before this delightfully dreadful baby murloc masquerading as Grommash Hellscream, legendary leader of the Warsong clan.


Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft – Blizzard 2014 Card Back
Infuse your deck with Blizzard spirit by equipping this commemorative card back, forged to resemble the compass design emblazoned in Blizzard’s courtyard.


StarCraft II – Portraits & Decal
Deck out your profile with a pair of portraits, including Hierarch Artanis and another to-be-revealed icon, and prep your army for battle across multiple universes with a Heroes of the Storm–themed decal.


Diablo III – Warlords of Draenor Weapon Transmogrifications
Outfit your heroes with six weapon transmogrification appearances inspired by World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor—one for each of Diablo III: Reaper of Souls’ classes.


Heroes of the Storm – Nexus Mount and Portrait
Rush into the storm atop the ethereal Nexus Charger, and embrace the unknown with the mysterious Nexus Brawler portrait.


This year’s epic collection of in-game goodies will be available to use after BlizzCon begins. Head to the BlizzCon Virtual Ticket page to order or learn more.

*Diablo III content for Windows/Mac version only.

**Heroes of the Storm content will be available once you get access to the game; note that ordering a Virtual Ticket does not guarantee a spot in the alpha or beta tests.

    Grommloc is disappointing but may just be because of the shear awesomeness of murkalot, still bought a virtual ticket tho pretty much just for the hots mount(wish wasn't a horse tho), diablo stuff, and heartstone back(2nd fav back so far).

    Yes, your account will be flagged. So when/if you buy Diablo 3 for PC/Mac, the items will be added to your transmog panel. At least that's how any type of bonuses linked to bnet accounts have worked in the past. So it would only be logical that it will work that way as well.

    Deadeye’s Mace: 1H Mace
    Fist Weapon of the Shattered Hand: Fist Weapon
    Bow of the Lost Warlord: Bow

    (This is based on info that was datamined from 2.1, so it is obviously subject to change)
    Yea, see I just looked at the initial image on MMO-Champ lol. Either way as you said it's subject to change and who knows if people complain about certain items not being moggable from Virtual Ticket they may either add more or add more sources to each type. Who knows.

    There was once a Blizzcon Polar Bear Mount. You'd think coming up to the 10 year anniversary of WoW and release of WoD they would try to add hype via a unique mount and pet (Grommloc is terrible, no two ways about it).

    The soon to be named Icon for SC2... Fenix perhaps? Or maybe a new character to do with Legacy of the Void, which HOPEFULLY will be their biggest announcement there.

    When for $40 you get:

    • Virtual Access to Blizzcon and all the panels
    • WoW Pet
    • Hearthstone Card back
    • SC 2 Portait and Decal
    • D3 Transmogs
    • Hereos of the Storm Mount & Portrait

    Unless you really meant to say for $40 you are only interested in the pet so it's not worth it then that would make sense, but your comment seems to insinuate that you only get the pet for $40.
    Like you said, because people don't count the things they don't use.

    I think you might have nailed it. Murkalot was pretty awesome, Grommloc is a disappointing followup. The Heroes of the Storm mount looks cool, but I don't know if I'm going to even play that. Diablo t-mogs are meh... I don't seem to use that feature much. I dunno, just not all that excited about it this year.

    I agree. I don't find the Grommloc all that aesthetically pleasing. I love my Murkalot even if he's from a silly place.

    A mount would've been nice for a change, but what do you expect from actiblizz? Players gets strung along, given just enough to keep them interested. It's minimal effort, high profit strategy. I don't blame the people who feel gypped by this.

    If I was 8 years old this might get me excited. If I was going to pay 40$ it would be for the goodies, not to watch Chris Metzen on crack, and the goodies are worthless. For 40$ I can get a full set of gear in a Pay2Win game.

    How is it that the murloc joke thing still entertains people to this day? Is WoW really that devoid of other races? Is making something like Mini Tyrael really that hard?

    Can I buy a ticket in us-version of battle.net shop and then claim it on the eu-account?

    Happy to watch and just get the WoW pet. People seem to complain about everything they offer.

    I don't think it looks bad, just not as exciting as some of the existing ones.

    Nothing will tempt me away from my rainbow deck anyway!

    You want a mount for everything? It's just watching a stream, I think pets and decals and shit is pretty generous personally.

    Having Artanis as one of the portraits is basically confirming Legacy of the Void.

    Happy that Heroes of the Storm and Heartstone wasn't forgotten in the Virtual Ticket.

    Makes me wonder if, they plan to add anything Heroes of the Storm related to Warlords CE

    Don't think so, since Warlords CE box art is most likely already finalized. Plus, Heroes are just entering Beta stage next week.
