Fans can now help support World of Warcraft esports through the purchase of two new in-game toys, available in the Blizzard shop and in-game shop:
The ethereals have a twisted new trick up their sleeves, and they’re ready to traverse the nether to help you spread some chaos and confusion on the battlefield. Use this beacon to summon an Ethereal Transmorpher who can turn you and your allies into some of the most fearsome foes Azeroth has ever known.
Lion’s Pride and Horde’s Might Fireworks
What’s more satisfying than vanquishing a worthy foe in honorable hand-to-hand combat? Planting an explosive in their freshly felled corpse, that’s what! Light up the sky above a recently defeated enemy player with these reusable fireworks and send an unmistakable signal to the other faction.
For a limited time, 25% of all purchases of either toys goes into this year’s finals LAN event prize pool. Both the Arena World Cup (AWC) and the Mythic Dungeon International (MDI) will have a guaranteed minimum prize pool of $500,000 USD ($250,000 USD for each event) – but proceeds from these in-game items can take World of Warcraft esports to the next level.
The Transmorpher Beacon and Lion’s Pride and Horde’s Might Fireworks are now available in the Blizzard shop and in-game shop.
