You can still join us from home by purchasing a BlizzCon Virtual Ticket, which grants access to two days of live HD coverage and unlocks this year’s lineup of commemorative in-game goodies. DIRECTV customers in the U.S. can also order BlizzCon as a Pay Per View event and get a Virtual Ticket as part of the package.
We’re gearing up to provide you with two days of unforgettably epic entertainment, and as always, BlizzCon 2014 wouldn’t be possible without the enthusiasm of our players around the world. We’d also like to thank this year’s sponsors—Intel, NVIDIA, DIRECTV, SteelSeries, Gigabyte, Rosewill, Razer, and Turtle Beach—for their generous support providing demo-station hardware, peripherals, and more.

Gearing Up for BlizzCon
Hordes of blacksmiths, drones, and goblin engineers have been tirelessly working on a treasure trove of epic new items to debut at BlizzCon 2014, and the first results of their labor are available for purchase now. The store is stocked with some epic never-before-seen loot, along with some of your favorite items from BlizzCons past—check out our Facebook gallery to get a closer look at the products currently available.
Make sure to log in to the Gear Store using the Battle.net account you used to purchase your Virtual Ticket. If you’re attending BlizzCon in person, use the account on which you redeemed the BlizzCon Digital Bonuses code from your badge confirmation email. (If a friend bought your ticket for you, ask them for your code, then redeem it here.)
Supplies are limited, so if you’re not going to the show in person or haven’t yet purchased a Virtual Ticket, you might want to order now to get an early chance at some cool BlizzCon merchandise. We’ll also be adding new items once BlizzCon gets underway on November 7, so be sure to check back in then.
All orders will be shipped upon receipt—so the sooner you order, the faster you’ll get your BlizzCon swag. Keep in mind that orders are shipped from the United States, so international shipping rates may apply.
*Those who purchased a BlizzCon ticket will need to redeem the code found in their ticket email at www.battle.net/code in order to gain access to the sale. Virtual Ticket purchasers are flagged for the sale at purchase and should have immediate access. No further action needs to occur.
Life on Hit and Life After Kill not on the same item
Grimiku clarified that Life on Hit and Life After Kill can't roll on the same item, much like All Resist and a single Resistance.
