Struggling to find the perfect gift for a friend, or just hoping to give them the flexibility to choose their own gifts?

We’re expanding our gifting service by allowing you to send Blizzard Balance to your friends, offering you the benefits of retail gift cards in a new and easy-to-use digital format.

Sending Balance gifts is simple: visit the Blizzard Shop, select one of the suggested values—or enter a custom amount, click the “Gift Balance” button, and select a friend.

Blizzard will deliver your gift along with a notification and personalized message directly to your friend, who can then claim the digital gift card balance onto their account.

As with other gifts, you’ll receive an email and a notification in the Blizzard App when a friend sends you Blizzard Balance, informing you that the gift has arrived and is ready to be claimed.

Giving the gift of Blizzard Balance is a fast and easy way to ensure that your friends and family will get the Blizzard product that they want most.

Happy Gifting!

It's just... If you are already going to just give that person money, why not just give the real deal?

Edit: Maybe it's cultural difference, but for me it's normal to give real money to someone for birthday or whatever.

that's true, but this it's really interesting taking in count that wow players  can exchange gold for battlenet Balance so they can actually give money without using real one.

I'm not sure what you're trying to say one way or the other, tbh.

Did you consider that it's possible they don't know the people IRL? So hand delivering cash is impossible. So if someone just wants, say, a race change in WoW, and you have a friend wanting to give you that, it's easy now. As far as I remember, you can't gift those. Unless you mean a banktransfer, which takes time.

Of course, as ZXNecroxz points out, it definitely opens up for gold/item trading, which is kind of weird, and perhaps they should just make everything giftable instead. They kind of already have the tokens for this exact purpose.

They should take this one step further imho and allow gifting Heroes, skins, mounts etc to friends in-game. It can be a big deal when you want to help a friend who's just starting, Blizzard likes to mil... *cough make money cough* so everyone will be happy.

They should let us gift anything out of anything.

For example, buying a skin or a mount for someone else in Heroes of the Storm using shards.

That's what crossed my mind later.

I feel like this is just a way for the top guilds to get around the ban hammer of real money traded runs. blizz decided they couldn't catch all of them so they just want their piece of the pie

If anything, that'd make them a lot easier to catch. Also, I doubt if a guild is RMT-ing they are going to accept Blizzard Balance. There's only so much you can spend it on until it's useless.

      We're getting a bit of a revamp to our favorite launcher, with a lot more overview over all its aspects, from the games themselves (with the Activision ones thankfully being given a bit less prominence), the friends list and more! And we can all try it out right now!
      Check out our BlizzCon 2019 Content Hub for all the latest details!
      Battle.net App Beta (source)
      We’ve been hard at work on new features for the Battle.net Desktop App, and we wanted to show you a preview of what we’re developing. Starting today, anyone who’s opted in to test Battle.net updates can try out our beta.

      Though we’re improving the look and feel of Battle.net, we also want to keep this preview familiar and easy to use. Here’s what to expect.
       
      The most obvious difference between the beta and its full-release sibling is a refreshed user interface. We’ve heard many of you loud and clear: You want more control over your game navigation, and you’d like your friends and chats to be easily accessible. You’ll also notice that we’ve updated the stories view for each game, so you can see more recent updates and highlights. To see all the updates in the Battle.net beta, check out our patch notes.

      If you didn’t sign up to test new versions of Battle.net, but you want to, log into the Battle.net Desktop App, head to the “Beta” menu in "Settings", and opt in to try future patches before they’re officially released.

      We’ll continue making the Battle.net App more user-friendly, more informative, and more customizable. We want it to help you connect with your friends and play games quickly and easily.

      If you have any thoughts about what would make the app a better experience for you, please use the app forums to send us your feedback.

      We’ll see you in-game!

      Blizzard is currently investigating an issue affecting their authentication servers, as players around the world are unable to log into Battle.net.

      Blizzard is aware of the issue and they're working on a fix. Follow BlizzCS on Twitter for more updates!

      BlizzCon started off with a gift, as everyone with a Battle.net account is getting the game for free! As long as you register before November 18th you'll be getting the base game to keep forever. There will be more specific information coming soon, so check back here for details.

      While the name is still somewhat weird and long, with the taskbar item being called the "Blizzard Battle.net App", the application itself is definitely getting better and better - with today's update bringing in improvements to groups, chats, and more:
      Build 9737 (source)
      Feature Updates
      Games can now be launched from the Windows System Tray and Task Bar directly on PCs, and from the Dock on Apple systems.
        We updated components for the Battle.net App: Upgraded Chromium to v62 Upgraded Qt to v5.9.3
        Made updates to video playback and decoding components.
        We made some updates to Blizzard Groups and Chats: Added a badge to indicate a message in a group was edited Updated experience for new/empty groups, making it easier for admins to manage them Updated experience for new/empty chats Made back-end improvements and enhancements to the chat system Bug Fixes
      Fixed minor bugs and issues

      In October, Blizzard announced their plans to convert from USD to local currency on Blizzard Battle.net in Canada, Japan and New Zealand. All the changes will be live within the next 24 hours.
      Blizzard (Source)
      In October, we announced that we’ll be converting from USD to local currency on Blizzard Battle.net® in Canada, Japan, and New Zealand. These changes will begin to roll out in these regions within the next 24 hours.
      For players in these regions, Blizzard Balance will be unavailable during the brief update process, but purchases can be made using other payment methods. Any purchases made during this period will be processed in local currency.
      For World of Warcraft® subscribers, the recurring subscription will continue to be charged in USD for the next 12 months. If there’s any interruption to your subscription, however—including an expired card, changes in payment methods, or account cancellations—any new subscriptions will be charged in your local currency.
      We want to make as many of our players as possible feel at home in the Blizzard ecosystem, and make managing your account with us easier. By switching from USD to local currency, we’re expanding the types of payment we accept and helping some of you avoid paying transaction fees charged by financial institutions.
      Please see our announcement in October for more information and follow @BlizzardCS for the latest updates.
