Songhammer announced BlizzCon 2016 exclusive launch of their latest LEGION: Epic Warcraft inspired rock video featuring 15 professional cosplayers, and great special effects. Songhammer will be performing live at BlizzCon, at the main stage on Friday, November 4, 2016 from 8 p.m. – 10 p.m. PDT.

The good news is that you don’t need a BlizzCon ticket to witness their performance. Their play will happen in open space between Marriott and Hilton — outside BlizzCon!

This EPIC adventure features 15 professional cosplayers including BlizzCon Cosplay Competition winners. Indie film award winning director, Randy Van Dyke (Non-Stop To Comic-Con, 31 awards won) both directed and created all the amazing VFX in this Wold of Warcraft inspired song and video. Songhammer will be premiering this song at BlizzCon 2016 for Blizzard’s 25th Anniversary Celebration. You Are NOT Prepared… for this much AWESOMENESS!!!

NYCC 2016 – Scholastic Giving Free Excerpt Copies of World of Warcraft: Traveler

The World of Warcraft: Traveler is nigh on our hands. While exploring NYCC 2016, I found the Scholastic room 1E03 at the basement level of the Javits Center (beneath the South Concourse). After going downstairs, turn to your left (behind the stairs) and keep going (in the direction where the 34th street would be if you were outside) until you find ROOM 1E03.

The staff told me you can grab a FREE excerpt copy of WORLD OF WARCRAFT: TRAVELER from the table.

 

NYCC 2016 Book Signing – World of Warcraft: The Official Cookbook

The World of Warcraft: The Official Cookbook has landed at the New York Comic Con (NYCC 2016). Head over to the Insight Editions Booth #1536 this Saturday, Oct 8 from 12:00pm to 1:00pm to buy an early copy of World of Warcraft: The Official Cookbook (Order Online). Author Chelsea Monroe-Cassel will be there to sign your copies. Come to say hi and to ask questions.

Otherwise, you can pre-order a copy online. The book is slated to ship on October 18th, 2016.

During my visit to NYCC (Thurs), I managed to take photos of the List of Contents, and another photo (sampling for you) how each recipe is organized.

New York Comic Con 2016 – Blizzard Licensed Partners

The NYCC 2016 schedule might help you visit some points of interest. Blizzard Entertainment has no official attendance in terms of the usual Blizzard Publishing Panel. However, you can visit known Blizzard Licensed Product partners. Some of them might have something new to show.

There is at least one Blizzard artist coming to New York Comic Con. Glenn Rane can be found in the Artists Alley at table U9. Bring your stuff for a autograph.

If you are attending the NYCC, I have gotta alert you to rush toward the TITAN BOOKS booth for a NYCC Exclusive item. Titan Books only have 30 copies of the WARCRAFT: THE OFFICIAL MOVIE NOVELIZATION (MAGE EDITION) signed by DUNCAN JONES. First come, first served – while supplies last. CHRISTIE GOLDEN is coming to New York Comic Con to sign copies of it, and the WARCRAFT: DUROTAN (movie prequel) novel. Make sure to come to booth #2142 from 10-11am, on Friday, OCT 7th!

2016 PAX West – World of Warcraft: Legion – The Invasion Continues Panel Transcript

Blizzard Entertainment held at PAX West the World of Warcraft: Legion — The Invasion Continues panel (Sept 3) to discuss details of the Demon Hunter, and the upcoming Patch 7.1: Return to Karazhan.

It is a tradition here at Blizzplanet to provide our visitors with a panel transcript whenever Blizzard goes to convention events (see our past coverage and panel transcripts). I’m a disable, and as such I recognize the need for transcripts for those with hearing impairment, or those with english limitations to read-only; or to those who would love an archive to read or search keywords without having to browse through the video.

Below is the panel video (jump to 03:13:42).

2016 Legion Launch Party | Santa Ana, CA

Blizzard Entertainment invited Blizzplanet to both Legion Launch Party events: Santa Ana, CA and Paris. Dperschonok was at the eSports Arena in Santa Ana and shares photos below.

Blizzplanet Coverage: World of Warcraft: Legion Launch Party in Paris

Blizzard Entertainment (Versailles) invited me, other fansites and influencers to attend the World of Warcraft: Legion Launch Party held in Paris. I met Mamytwink and other folks at the hotel, and traveled in taxi to the Petit Bain (Port de la Gare).

As we approached the Petit Bain, the first thing that impressed me was a gigantic mural of Illidan covering the top of the National Library of France.
