WoW’s Running of the Gnomes, BlizzCon’s virtual tickets, and patch 7.3.2 story spoilers

Did you drop $40 on a virtual ticket for BlizzCon 2017? You won’t have to wait until the convention starts in November to enjoy some of the benefits that come with such a golden pass.

Blizzard has started to post pre-show videos leading up to the show, and while the public can view some of them for free, others are exclusive for virtual ticket holders. Three videos can be access with the ticket, looking at casual and advanced cosplay as well as a trip into the Blizzard museum for memorable stories about the community.

Speaking of the community, World of Warcraft players are organizing another Running of the Gnomes on October 14th to raise awareness and money for the fight against breast cancer. While there is now an official micro-holiday spawned from this player event, this particular run is purely community-operated. Participants are urged to roll a pink-haired Gnome on the Scarlet Crusade server and have their guilds donate to charity.

Finally, in response to Wowhead’s datamining of sound files from the 7.3.2 test server, BlizzardWatch offers a glimpse into the future of the game. And you thought lore was boring!

BW’s Matthew Rossi opines that the datamined dialogue bits constitute farewell messages from Illidan to Malfurion and Tyrande and a summary from Khadgar that suggests Sargeras’ end doomed the whole of Azeroth and points to… Silithus? “Silithus is fairly close to the ocean off it’s west coast as well, for folks who won’t give up on that South Seas idea,” Rossi notes. “This could definitely be the start of an Old Gods themed expansion.”

I suspect Utakata has hack Bree’s account and is using it to give out assignments. We’ll know for sure if we have a top ten mmo’s with twin tails next.

The evidence appears to be mounting.

I wish I knew the other junk they plan on including with the pass. The mounts are so cool but…$40…I dunno. Tempt me further Blizzard!

For me it was worth it just to easily get a flying, 2 person mount. Lets me play my alt with my son, in legion, since he doesnt have flying unlocked.

I thought it was dumb until someone said you get both alliance and horde mounts – couple that with the fact you’ll get other trash for Blizzard games I play fairly regularly – AND you get to watch these videos if that is what floats yer airship – and all of a sudden it doesn’t sound so dumb.

My problem is there is this rational voice in my head saying *in a spooky ghost voice* “arrrrrmmmssssbend…you probably won’t be playing this in 3 months…and are you really going to watch a cosplay event live?….OOoooooOOOOOooooo!” *chains rattling, whooshing sound of wind through cedar trees*

I mean, sure, ill only be playing it for 3 months… but then, in 5 or 6 months, ill be back again to play another 3 months… Thats pretty much been my cycle for the past 10 years. I just make sure to unsub for those 5-6 month breaks.
