Blizzard Balance (renamed in mid-2017?[citation needed] previously called " Balance") is a storage account for digital currency usable within Blizzard Entertainment online shops with certain restrictions. As of April 19, 2018, gifting via the Blizzard Shop is available.[1]

The Blizzard Balance is accessed from Blizzard account management settings (upper right).[2]

Starting with the Diablo III beta test, a new feature called " Balance" was made available to store virtual currency purchased with real money to buy game-related services (character transfers, digital products like companions, and items in Diablo III's real-money auction house). The feature was released in the US region on February 6, 2012. A couple of days later on February 8, 2012, the feature was release for the Europe region. As of February 2017, a Wow token01.png [WoW Token] could be traded for $15 USD / €13 EUR / £10 GBP of Balance.[3]

It could not be used to purchase from the Blizzard Store[4] and was still true as of Sep 2013,[5] but not after the Shop changeover.
