divinite: (spirit of competition)
So I ended up being able to go to Blizzcon after all. Thanks to a wonderful inside connection, I got to enjoy all the awesome geekness that is Blizzcon.

Went to a number of panels, hung out with my raid group, had a good time.

Highlights of WoW related things:
- The new battlegrounds with siege engines look really freakin' awesome (Strand of the Ancients and the Wintergrasp zone)
- The Wintergrasp zone is using new technology that doesn't allow you to play/gain honor/ability to control siege if you afk or tag along.
- There's a special instance just for the faction that has control of the zone.
- The new arenas actually make me want to try
- The new 5 mans are beautiful, expansive and intimidating. New boss class "Titans" with players only as tall as their toes. New boss models.
- They did revisions on loot tables and not just more loot will drop, but better and fitting to a wider variety of classes.
- Heroic 5-mans will drop better loot than their regular versions (instead of the same as they are now).
- New raids look awesome (5 rooms of aspect dragons, at least one of which drops a mount at the most difficult setting - chosen by the raid group). We're already talking about them.
- Switchable specs! (Probably in the first patch after the x-pac) Allows you to switch between two specs without going to the trainer (so PVE/PVP or Heal/Tank, etc).

Non WoW related Blizzcon things:
- The contests Friday night were silly and Jay Mohr was (apparently) a lot funnier than last year (he didn't get booed of the stage this year).
- The girl who won the costume contest made an animatronic turtle mount that she rode in on!
- L80ETC rocked! Loudly! They debuted a new song about Death Knights.
- "Only at Blizzcon can a metal band be the opening act for a symphony orchestra."
- Video Games Live! performed, wow, they're awesome.
- Nobody remembers who won the /silly contest, but everyone remembers who should have ("What's a woman's favorite class for a man to play? Male Enhancement Shaman!").
- Our groups Dranei looked better than most of the other Dranei in the costume contest, but she refused to enter.
- Two of our people ended up on G4 online on the gyroscope thing. Internet Superstardom.
- We've figured out our dance contest entries for next year. No, not telling. You'll have to be there to find out. But they'll rock. Two group entries from CR Silver Hand-US-A!

The best part of everything:
Raid group at Friday night dinner

Raid group at closing ceremony/concert (we filled 2.75 rows and were missing some!)

Walk away quietly in any direction and taste the freedom of the mountaineer,.Camp out among the grasses and gentians of glacial meadows, in craggy garden nooks full of nature's darlings. Climb the mountains and get their good tidings, Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves. As age comes on, one source of enjoyment after another is closed, but nature's sources never fail.

I saw the following article on Gadling, a travel blog I subscribe to.  I thought it was especially interesting considering I went to the same place this weekend!  My experience was slightly different though.

Had to Gakk this from [livejournal.com profile] sasha_kahn. I'm guessing almost everyone that answers honestly will create a huge cluster in the SoCal region.

I'm trying to get all my Livejournal friends' locations plotted on a map - please add your location starting with this form.
(Then get your friends to!)

Here's pictures from the event. I'll actually write about it later. It was fun, lots happened, it rained, but that didn't stop us.

I think I got pictures of most of the performers. [livejournal.com profile] dieppe had my camera during opening court.

There's a video...it's hi-larious. It's Ban-dal's complete performance (both songs).

I am 5% White Trash.
Not at all White Trashy!
I, my friend, have class. I am so not white trash. . I am more than likely Democrat, and my place is neat, and there is a good chance I may never drink wine from a box.

FotR pictures coming soon.

If you happen to get the magazine Tournaments Illuminated, look at page 12 of the new issue (with knit stuff on the cover). Look whose name is misspelled in the picture captions (but it's spelled correctly on the front cover with the bio!).

Sweet. Published. Awesome.

Busy week for you, huh?

Hope all are having a good time with their loved ones and nobody is stuck in miserable weather conditions.
