BlizzCon 2017 In-Game Bonus Items Incoming, Occularus, Calamir, Pet Battle Event

World of Warcraft BlizzCon Gear Store Merchandise
The Blizzard Gear store has been updated with new BlizzCon 2017 products. Orders are only open to Virtual Ticket holders today, but will open for everyone on 10/17. We've highlighted some of the more interesting items below, but you can see them all here.

World of Warcraft Sargeras Shirt
The shirt description potentially explains the wound added to a map in Patch 7.3.2. Check out the original shirt description for spoilers! The description was modified after the shirt went live.

World of Warcraft Raptor Plushie
This raptor doesn't spoil anything in its description, but an interesting raptor mount was recently added in Patch 7.3.2. The ArmoredRaptor mount is still encrypted, so we don't know what it will look like. A new creature was also added that uses hoofprints and existing horse sounds in Patch 7.3.2, but the model is encrypted with the same key as the ArmoredRaptor. You can also pick up a Elekk plushie!

Pirate Plush Pepe
This new Pepe features a pirate hate and eye patch, matching the Pirate Pepe you can see in game. He is part of the I Found Pepe! achievement!

Kul Tiras Armor Sets
These are not for sale, but with BlizzCon approaching now is a good time to post a reminder about these sets that were added in Patch 7.3.

Overwatch - Halloween Terror Event
The Halloween Terror Event is live until Nov 1st, bringing new cosmetics, a new game mode, and more! Check out the new intros and emotes on the official post.

Take a look at the in-game bonus items you’ll get for your favorite Blizzard games when you join us for BlizzCon 2017 in person or when you order the BlizzCon 2017 Virtual Ticket.

World of Warcraft: Stormwind Skychaser and Orgrimmar Interceptor - In-game now!
Heroes of Azeroth can show their BlizzCon spirit with the Stormwind Skychaser mount (for the Alliance!) and Orgrimmar Interceptor mount (for the Horde!).

Overwatch: BlizzCon 2017 Winston Skin - In-game today!
Through the power of science, Winston found himself teleported into BlizzCon 2017—and picked up this souvenir skin to mark the curious occasion.

StarCraft II: Junker SCV, Probe, and Drone Skins - In-game today!
Discovered on the fringe worlds by the notorious terran junker gangs who scour the Korprulu sector for salvage, these scrappy SCVs, Probes, and Drones are retrofitted and ready to take on your dirty work.

Heroes of the Storm: Nexus Razorback Mount…and More! - Coming Soon
Charge into battle on the Nexus Razorback mount, make your mark on the Battlegrounds with a BlizzCon 2017 Banner and Cartoon Nexus Razorback Spray, and show your convention spirit with your BlizzCon 2017 Portrait.

Diablo® III: Murkromancer Pet - Coming Soon
No one escapes the aaaaaughibbrgubugbugrguburgle! Rumor has it this necrotic, aquatic companion can command an army of dead fish, which is about as useful as you’d think.

What’s on deck for Hearthstone players? The Innkeeper’s not quite ready to show his hand quite yet!

This Week
All week, get out there and fight with your mighty minions. When the time comes to take on other players, open your Pet Journal and hit the “Find Battle” button to be matched up with an opponent whose team is competitive with yours.

Look for the following all week long:
