Are you prepared to buy your BlizzCon 2017 tickets?

BlizzCon 2017 is still way off on the horizon — November 3 – 4 this year — but BlizzCon ticket sale season is here. Just like last year, tickets cost $199 each, which includes your ticket, virtual ticket, and goodie bag. But if you miss out on the standard tickets, there’s one last chance to get to BlizzCon if you have the budget for it: the BlizzCon charity dinner, which benefits the Children’s Hospital of Orange County. Tickets to the dinner are $750 each and include all the usual BlizzCon goodies plus a pre-BlizzCon dinner with the staff of Blizzard Entertainment.

The first batch of tickets is gone, but you have have two more chances to buy:

  • Saturday, April 8 at 10AM PDT / 1PM EDT
  • Wednesday, April 12 at 7PM PDT / 10PM EDT for Charity Dinner tickets only

All tickets are purchased through Universe, which you’ll be familiar with if you bought tickets last year. And though there’s a limited supply of tickets, we have a few tips to help you get yours.

Create your Universe account

Before the BlizzCon tickets go on sale, you can go to the front page and create an account. You won’t be able to put in your credit card information just yet, but at least you can get your account set up out of the way.

Get in the login ticket queue

At the appointed hour, log in to your Universe account and head to the BlizzCon ticketing page. Click the GET TICKETS button to join the ticket queue. Don’t click reload, back, or anything else — you just have to wait it out.

Have your information ready

Every second counts when you’re buying tickets. And, trust us, you aren’t going to have time to search through your wallet to get your credit card when tickets go on sale. When you get through the queue, you’ll need to:

  • Select the number of tickets you want, up to four.
  • Log in or create an account if you haven’t already — but if you didn’t do this in advance, taking the time to do it now is likely to lose your tickets.
  • Enter the information for each ticketholder. If you’re buying multiple tickets, we recommend entering your information for each to speed through the shopping process — you can change the info later, through July 14.
  • Enter your credit card information, including card number, expiration date, and security code.

Ticket availability will be checked after you enter all your info and click the CONFIRM BOOKING button, so be ready to type fast.
