WoW gold battlenet balance

Got an online friend you want to send a present to, but can’t quite afford the Overwatch skin they’re after? Or maybe you want to let your long-distance raid partner know you appreciate their support, but you’re not quite sure what in-game item to send?

Luckily Blizzard have solved this awkward social problem, as you can now gift a friend Blizzard Balance on Battle.net instead.

Yesterday, Blizzard announced they have expanded their gifting service to allow Battle.net users to send Blizzard Balance to their friends. In other words, you can send in-game currency to other players. Previously, users could only send in-game items as gifts.

Here’s how to gift Blizzard Balance to a friend through Battle.net:

  • Visit the Blizzard Shop
  • Go to Blizzard Balance
  • Select ‘Add/Gift Balance’
  • Choose the amount you want to send
  • Hit ‘Gift Balance’
  • Then select a friend

Blizzard will then send the amount, with a special notification and a personalised message of your choosing, to your friend. Your friend then needs to claim the digital gift balance into their account.

Balance gifting is available now on Battle.net.
