As is tradition at BlizzCon, there is a broad range of collectibles that can be acquired for die-hard fans of each game made by Blizzard. Some of these are predictable, such as the World of Warcraft beer steins that seem to pop up year after year, while others are completely original and should not be missed as exclusives that can only be obtained at BlizzCon. Some items will be previewed at the event for release in the near future.
Darkmoon Faire Collector’s Guide
The ever popular Darkmoon Faire makes its return to BlizzCon 2019 with a dedicated area located in North Hall Level 2. Attendees will be experienced activity-based retail experiences themed strong after the in-game events, collecting and trading a range of unique pins, badges, vinyl figures, capsule toys, and other collectibles. Many of these will focus on the celebration of the World of Warcraft 15th anniversary.
The Darkmoon Faire area will be available during November 1–2 with activities at the Darkmoon Faire & Badge Trading Booth, Wonderworks Pop-Up Shop (featuring D.E.H.T.A. plush toys), Capsule Toy Depot, and other exciting booths.
Finally, Timewalkers’ Treasure Chests with a World of Warcraft 15th Anniversary Gold Patina Sylvanas Funko POP! exclusive figure will be available for collectors at the show. The highly-anticipated March of the Murlocs starts on Saturday at 12:45 p.m. in the entrance of Hall D, and attendees can purchase the all-new 2019 murloc kigurumis at the BlizzCon Store.
The BlizzCon Store All-Access Gear Sale
The BlizzCon 2019 All-Access Gear Sale is now live and open to all Blizzard players attending the show, as well those participating from home Blink shopping is now available for BlizzCon attendees, which allows customers to shop online or through the mobile app and pick up their purchases at the convention starting Thursday, October 31 at the BlizzCon Store located in North Hall Level 1. This is one of the most convenient ways to shop as there is simply too much to see at the end event, not including the range of panels to attend. Hopefully buyers should note that as usual, the BlizzCon All-Access sale is only available on the US version of the Gear Store.
