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! ;)

I cannot believe that you guys thought less than a single mile was a "long way to walk". :|

The distance between my PC and the toilet is usually a "long way to walk" for me.

Well if it's too far to walk it does bring up an unpleasant image of what happens when Worldie needs to go. ;)

Why not merely have the chambermaid bring out the night pot?

I really really hope they have Annual Pass again -- I'd love to get it just so I can get into the beta.
