BlizzCon 2015 Schedule
3 days ago
Earlier this morning, the BlizzCon 2015 schedule was posted to the official BlizzCon site, but later taken down (although it remains on the BlizzCon app). Basic
was revealed at gamescom, but we should be getting more specifics in several BlizzCon panels.
Edit: This schedule is now removed from both the official BlizzCon website and BlizzCon app. What's below may be a preliminary schedule, not the final one for BlizzCon 2015.
Warcraft panels include:
World of Warcraft: Legion - World and Content Overview: 12:30-2 pm Friday
The World of Warcraft team takes you on an epic tour of the new content you'll explore in the expansion, including the zones of the Broken Isles, new dungeons and raids, and how the story unfolds. You'll also get a sneak peek at upcoming features.
World of Warcraft Cinematics - The Road to Legion: 2:15 - 3:15 pm Friday
Blizzard's cinematic artists share a behind-the-scenes look at how they bring some of Azeroth's most iconic figures to life.
World of Warcraft: Legion - Game Systems: 1 - 2 pm Saturday
Take a closer look at the major features coming in Legion. Dig deeper into classes, Artifacts, itemization, professions, the Demon Hunter, and other evolving gameplay elements.
World of Warcraft: Q&A - 2:30 - 3:30 Saturday
Members of the World of Warcraft development team tank your questions about the game's lore, zones, dungeons, raids, and more.
All times are in PST and you can watch the panels from home with the
for $39.99. If you're in the area, make sure you stop by
Wowhead's 10th Anniversary Party
on Thursday, November 5th from 6-11pm at the Hilton Anaheim!
A few interesting things to note--there's no live raid panel for WoW or gap after the Opening Ceremony for surprise news like there was in past years. There's only one Diablo panel, compared to other games which receive multiple panels.

Get BlizzCon 2015 Tickets Here
Tickets usually go fast, so if you want to attend this year’s show, it pays to be prepared. Ticket sales are once again being handled through
this year, and a few things are different from 2014. It’s worth reading our
BlizzCon Ticket Info page
to get an overview, but if you want more details on how it works, check out this handy guide.
What Information You’ll Need to Provide
You’ll want to have the following information handy when you’re buying BlizzCon tickets:
Your information: First Name, Last Name, Email Address, Character name (optional)
Credit card information, including billing information (Country, Address, City, State, Zip Code)
Your friends’/family’s information: First Name, Last Name, Email Address, Character Name (optional)—note that you’ll be able to go back and change these until August 14.
What’s New for 2015
A few changes are in store for ticket buyers this year, including updates to how tickets are delivered based on BlizzCon 2014 feedback, as well as some changes to the Eventbrite purchasing process.
Barcodes Delivered Immediately
—This year, ticket buyers and attendees will receive the bar-code emails used to claim their badges
after purchasing tickets. In addition, bar codes will be accessible via the ticket purchaser’s Eventbrite account, where they’ll be available to view or reprint at any time. Buyers should note that bar code emails will also be sent to whoever you assign your tickets to, so if you’re not yet certain who’s coming, you might want to assign tickets to your own email address for now. (You’ll have until August 14 to make attendee changes.)
—Eventbrite has made some updates to their waiting room that should help make the experience smoother for BlizzCon hopefuls. This year, people in the waiting room will no longer be sent back to the event page if their turn comes up but the number of tickets they requested is not available. Instead, they’ll remain in the waiting room and retain their position in line until another order for the quantity of tickets they requested is released back for sale. For example, if you requested 4 tickets and reach the front of the line, the next time an order for 4 tickets is released, you’ll have first dibs. (Keep in mind this also means you won’t be able to select a different, lower ticket quantity if you reach the front of the line and the ticket quantity you requested isn’t available.)
Head to the
Eventbrite ticketing page
, and choose the quantity of tickets you wish to purchase from the drop-down menu (4 ticket per household limit).
*UPDATED FOR 2015*
. If all tickets have been claimed, buyers may find themselves in line in a “waiting room” while others complete their purchases—see the “What’s New for 2015” section above for more details. Keep in mind that being in the waiting room doesn’t necessarily mean you’re guaranteed tickets.
Once you’re in the checkout and registration process, you’ll have 8 minutes to complete your purchase. A countdown will be displayed on-screen so you know how much time you have remaining. After 8 minutes, the tickets will be released for others to buy, drawing from those in the waiting room.
Fill out the Ticket Buyer information (your name and email) to purchase the tickets. Make sure you enter a valid email address that you use regularly, as important event communications (including your badges) will be emailed to this address.
Enter your credit card information. Remember, you will need to have this card at the convention if you need to make changes on-site. See the
page for more information.
Enter your name and email address for the first ticket (or your friend/family member’s information if you’re purchasing a ticket for someone other than yourself), and character name (optional). If you don’t have that information now, just enter your own name and email for now—you’ll have until
to make changes.
*NEW FOR 2015*
When entering attendee names and emails here and in Step 9, keep in mind that tickets will be sent to both the purchaser’s email address as well as the email addresses assigned to each ticket immediately upon completing your purchase.
Check the box to agree to the waiver. If you do not agree, you cannot proceed with purchasing BlizzCon tickets. Remember there is a 4-ticket-per-household limit for General Admission BlizzCon tickets.
Enter your friends’ or family members’ name and email address for each additional ticket. Again, you’ll have until August 14 to make changes, so just enter your own for now if you need to sort out who’s attending later.If you do not have that information at the time of purchase, use the drop-down menu to auto-fill the ticket with your own name and email address—or, you can manually enter your own information. Remember you need to do this separately for each additional ticket you’ll be purchasing.
You will need to agree to the waiver for each additional ticket you’re purchasing.
Once you’ve entered everything, click Pay Now.Once you click Pay Now, you will be sent to a “processing order” page. Once your order is complete, you’ll receive a confirmation email from Eventbrite—be sure to check your Spam folder if you don’t see it.
*NEW FOR 2015*
Emails containing bar codes to claim badges will be sent immediately upon purchase. All tickets will be sent to both the purchaser’s email address as well as the email address assigned to a ticket.Congratulations! You have successfully purchased tickets to BlizzCon 2015!
