Hello, Readers.

It's wonderful to see everyone so enthusiastically participating to get the achievement. Everyone is levelling so quickly and we already have a few combinations completed.

In the meantime we now have more info coming out about BlizzConline. This includes details on how and when to watch, as well as the release of a special bundle that gives goodies across the major games in Blizzard's collection.

I hope you all have a good week.


Piwakawaka.

Get Ready for BlizzConline™ February 19–20
Denizens of Azeroth, defenders of Sanctuary and the Koprulu Sector, heroes of Overwatch and the Nexus—we’d like to extend you a formal invitation to connect with your allies and rivals across the Blizzard community (virtually) during BlizzConline™ this February 19–20!

BlizzConline is an all-digital community celebration and exhibition of Blizzard games and universes—a chance for us to get together in the online world while circumstances keep us from gathering in the real one. We’ll be celebrating some fun milestones, shining a spotlight on the epic things the Blizzard community has been up to, and sharing the latest Blizzard game news with everyone.

You’ll be able to watch the entirety of the show completely free through the BlizzCon website, where you can choose between six channels of content covering your favorite games. You’ll also be able to watch the show on your favorite streaming platforms, including Twitch and YouTube.


On both days, we have a variety of events and preproduced segments planned to bring some of the BlizzCon spirit into your homes. We’ll dive deeper into Blizzard’s games and universes with developers, host some fun gaming competitions featuring esports pros, and a whole lot more.

Day 1 will kick off at 2 p.m. PST on Friday, February 19, with an opening segment that includes a first look at some of the latest game content the development teams have been working on. Then for the next three-plus hours, you’ll have the option to tune in to one of the six different themed channels, so you can decide whether you want to sample a little bit of everything or dig deeper into the games you’re interested in most.

Day 2 will pick back up at 12 p.m. PST on Saturday, February 20, with multiple channels once again, until the fun wraps up at later that afternoon. Throughout this second day, we’ll be shining a spotlight on the global Blizzard community, including the winners and outstanding entries in the Community Showcase contests and exhibitions.

If you miss anything along the way, don’t worry: you’ll be able to watch it later free in the BlizzConline video archives.

Select BlizzConline content will be supported in 12 languages via livestream or VOD, including English with subtitles in European Spanish, French, German, Russian, Latin American Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Arabic, Japanese, Korean, simplified Chinese, and traditional Chinese.

We’ll be sharing a detailed schedule of events and segments in the weeks before the show—stay tuned!

Blizzard 30th Anniversary Logo

This month is also 30th anniversary of Blizzard, and we’ll be using the BlizzConline occasion to celebrate three decades of playing together alongside our community. Starting today, we also have some commemorative in-game goodies for sale themed around 30 years of Blizzard as part of three Celebration Collections—check out our blog to learn more about what’s available for each game. And keep an eye on the Blizzard Gear Store for a selection of merchandise to help bring some of the online fun into the physical realm—including a replica of the Helm of Domination once worn by Arthas—coming to the Gear Store on February 19.

Helm of Domination Replica Coming Soon to the Gear Store

Thanks to everyone who sent in entries for the Community Showcase, and thanks to all our players around the world who’ve been channeling the BlizzCon spirit every day in-game. We can’t wait to connect with you all later this month!

Take Home a Legendary Loot Haul
This February, Blizzard® is celebrating our 30th year of creating worlds, exploring new universes, and sharing countless epic gaming experiences together.


We’re looking forward to marking the occasion with everyone later this month at BlizzConline™—and if you’d like to summon forth some anniversary spirit in your favorite Blizzard games, you can pick up one of three Celebration Collection bundles filled with in-game goodies and extras, available starting today in the Blizzard Shop. When you purchase the Celebration Collection, you can bring a piece of BlizzConline with you into whatever world or universe you call home, and mark the occasion in-game alongside your friends, allies, teammates, guildmates, broodmates, and rivals.

For World of Warcraft players, purchasing these bundles will reward a pet, a mount, and 30 days of game time.

Snag the Essentials Pack ($19.99) to unlock the Moon-Touched Netherwhelp pet, adorned with scales said to reflect the night sky of another world—perhaps one of the many you’ve explored on your own far-reaching journey.

Upgrade to the Heroic Pack ($39.99) to add the mighty Snowstorm bear mount to your WoW collection. Thunder across the tundras of Azeroth and the fields of Bastion astride this mighty frost-shrouded mount bearing the sigil of an epic anniversary. This Blizzard-born bear leaves behind snow drifts from time to time, so don’t be too surprised if a snowball fight breaks out in the middle of Maldraxxus.

Going for the gold with the Epic Pack ($59.99) will grant you all of the above along with 30 days of World of Warcraft time to continue your adventures in World of Warcraft and World of Warcraft Classic.

Celebration Collection
The Celebration Collection packs include the above along with goodies for Heroes of the Storm®, Overwatch®, StarCraft®, Diablo®, and Hearthstone®. Get a closer look in the full preview, and head to the Blizzard Shop to pick up a pack.

Note that Moon-Touched Netherwhelp and Snowstorm are only available in World of Warcraft and not accessible in WoW Classic.

Classy Leveling
The A3 Team would really love to have the 8th bank tab for our main guild. While this is not a long-term solution to adoptions and storage, we've always wanted to complete our main bank. We're asking for your help in completing this achievement: Stay Classy. We have some fun prizes to reward for your efforts!

This is a long-term project with several months worth of prizes. Prizes will alternate between Battle Pets, Cosmetic Items, Mounts, and Toys. We will also have Game Time up for grabs! At the mid-way mark, there will be a BlizzStore giveaway, open to all regions. And to celebrate the completion of the achievement we will have a grand giveaway!

To check out full event details and get in on the action, click More Information below!

EVENT DONATION DRIVE
Event pets are some of the hardest pets we are able to obtain for adoption, yet they are popular requests for new members. Instead of hosting 1 donation drive per event, we've decided to host one big donation drive for the entire year of events. The drive will have several prize drawing dates, and you can enter with any of the pets on the list, at any time!

During this event you can contribute pets all year long, from most WoW events and a few bonus categories.
There will be 4 drawings total, awarding x1 winner with their choice of 1 Month of Game Time or their choice of x1 BlizzStore pet, mount, toy, or cosmetic item. We will also have a list of in game rewards.
Unlike previous event donation drives, there are no minimums to reach prizes.

For more information, check out the full event post!
