There are also two WoW talks scheduled. These will not be available on the Virtual Ticket:
Friday, November 6, 2:45 p.m.
Scott Johnson, host of
The Instance Podcast

Pin trading is a fun activity where players collect pins at Blizzard events and then swap them for missing ones. Some pins are very difficult to get, so people display the ones they have on a lanyard and hope they can make an exchange.
Players can purchase Season 2 blind packs from the BlizzCon shop, as well as a special Collector's Edition Alexstrasza only available from the Pin Trading booth.
The BlizzCon 2015 Pin Trading Booth is located in the Darkmoon Faire section of Hall A. Here are the official rules:
Players can make up to two trades each time they approach the board.
Trades are one pin for one pin, and a gold pin can only be traded for another gold pin.
This year the board will only be available for trading Series 1 & 2 Blizzard Collectible Pins.
Players can also trade pins with special Community Members who will be wearing lanyards filled with pins:
Trades are one pin for one pin, and a gold pin can only be traded for another gold pin.
They will only accept Series 1 & 2 Blizzard Collectible Pins as trades for their pins.
Below are the shirts the Community Members will be wearing:
Blizzard pins will also be making a special appearance at the Wowhead party in addition to BlizzCon proper! We'll be giving away Season 2 pins and Cute but Deadly lanyards, have the full Season 2 set on display, and you may even catch some hard-to-find Season 1 packs at the event.
