I think we'll probably be going to the WoWInsider party as well, might be best just to bump into each other there. The bar we went to last time was a long walk from the NW end of the con, probably not the ideal place.

So, this is a thing:
http://us.battle.net/blizzcon/en/forum/ ... 0433103763

My Sacred Duty colleagues and I thought it would be a good idea to schedule a time at the Meeting Stone to meet, greet, and most importantly thank our readers/watchers. Since we have our hammers in a number of different projects (Final Boss TV, Sacred Duty, Maintankadin, WoW Insider) we decided to make it a general meet-up rather than just a "Maintankadin meet-up" or a "Sacred Duty" meet-up.

We're calling it Palapalooza because the five of us are the core group that are promising to be there:

Theck - Blogger at Sacred Duty, moderator at Maintankadin, theorycrafter, Tank in <Cadenza> Tichondrius-US

Anafielle - Co-host on Final Boss TV, blogger at Sacred Duty, Twitterista, Retribution in <Something Wicked> Whisperwind-US

Meloree - Blogger at Sacred Duty, retired tank from <Edge> Garona-US

Rhidach - Protection Paladin blogger at WoW Insider, blogger at Righteous Defense, tank in <Business Time> Moonrunner-US

Antigen/Lysogen - Retribution Paladin blogger at WoW Insider, Retribution in <Cadenza> Tichondrius-US

Just to make it completely clear, this is not a paladin-only meet-up. We'd love to meet all of our readers/fans, no matter what class you play. We want to say hi to all of you, and we want to thank you in person for all the clicks, views, and comments you've given us over the years.

Thought was that this could also be an open maintankadin meet-up, since the WoWI party will probably be crowded and hard to identify folks.

Maybe I'll make the trek over the pond for next year's Blizzcon. The meetups and parties are usually open to all, not just to ticket holders, right?

Meetups in public places are open to all (if it's inside the venue, you won't get in without a ticket). As for the parties... the WoW Insider party was by invitation/confirmation only. We had to sneak in with bracelets from people who had already left the party.

That was the wowhead/Curse private party in the Hilton on Friday night, unless I'm misremembering. The WoWI party was at the Annabella patio on Thursday night.

Yeah, they switched it around on us this year too, which makes it extra confusing. This year WH and WoWI are paired together Thursday. I'm not sure if there's a Curse private party or not yet. Probably, but clearly I wasn't invited! :P

I went to pack mine yesterday, but decided against it. I ordered a small, which was already a little tight on me in 2011. Turns out it's even tighter on the 2013 version of me that's ~10-15 lbs heavier. It really wasn't flattering. Wonder if Aergis has any mediums left over.

So are you saying that your Theck Waistline Index (TWI) has increased due to tanking heroic lunches and now your shirt needs an appropriate iLvL increase to compensate?

Note to self; try on my Maintankadin shirt before packing it.

I'd also like to see if anybody would be up for meeting before the doors open on Friday and aim for good seating in the main hall. Based on the schedule I don't plan on leaving it for the entire day and would like to see if we can coordinate seat reserves for the ones people will be leaving and returning for other parts (and allow me to get lunch and hit the bathroom without loosing my seat). PM me if you are interested and we can possibly swap cell #s to coordinate on Friday.

So long story short my friend and I have a spare Blizzcon ticket. We plan on taking the goodie bag to send to a friend, but the entry to Blizzcon is free for anyone that wants it.

4pm Saturday at the stone sounds good, definitely much less of a walk which is nice! Shall do my best to turn up and experience the TWI in person! ;)
