Get those credit cards ready and be prepared to move quickly, because the folks at BlizzCon have announced the dates for ticket sales. If previous years are any indication, you're going to have to get your tickets almost immediately or not at all -- last year 20,000 passes sold out in less than one hour total.

Regular tickets will go on sale in two batches; the first round will be on on May 21st and the second on May 25th, and each pass is priced at $175. If you're feeling like splurging, you can wait until the 28th and spring for a benefit dinner ticket for $500. These tickets benefit the Children's Hospital of Orange County and grant you access to a pre-BlizzCon dinner with members of the Blizzard team in addition to granting you that coveted BlizzCon pass.

Finally, you can watch from the comfort of your own home for $39.99 thanks to a virtual ticket. Virtual tickets will get you comprehensive live streaming coverage, and the dates on that one are coming soon. Check the BlizzCon site for all the details.
