We’re now less than two months away from the start of Blizzard’s nearly-annual blowout in Anaheim, and this week they revealed some of what attendees and purchasers of the television coverage of the event will be getting in their swagger bagger. Everyone who attends this year’s BlizzCon or purchases the BlizzCon Virtual Ticket will receive an exclusive set of murlocalyptic in-game items for World of Warcraft and StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty. World of Warcraft players will be joined by Deathy, a murloc companion decked out as Deathwing and doing his best to strike fear into the hearts of Azeroth’s crustacean population. You’ll also be able to display your tidal pride in StarCraft II with a Murloc Marine character portrait and a pair of deep-sea decals to emblazon on your units, each with a different terran, protoss, and zerg design.

Any legendary items you have already earned will count.” Sometimes, WoW Players Kick Butt In Real Life
