BlizzCon 2013 Announced

Patch 5.1
As a Tuesday with "extended" maintenance, today wasn't all that bad. BlizzCon 2013 has been announced!
Posted by Blizzard Entertainment Feb 19, 2013 6:00 AM PST
BLIZZCON!!!!!! The seventh BlizzCon is coming to the Anaheim Convention Center Friday, November 8 and Saturday, November 9, 2013. Those who join us for this epic community gathering will experience two solid days of hands-on time with the latest Blizzard games, in-depth developer discussion panels, intense eSports action featuring some of the top players in the world, and a variety of other exciting activities and events. Further details on the show, including ticket pricing and availability, will be posted here on BlizzCon.com at a later date. In the meantime, check out the press release for more info and prepare to help us blow Anaheim's mind.

Chatter on Twitter indicates that the Hilton is already booked to capacity less than 12 hours after the official announcement, and rooms are going fast at nearby hotels. If you're planning on going to BlizzCon this year, better book a room quick through the official BlizzCon website (or call the nearby hotels direct) to get the discounted convention rates! (http://us.battle.net/blizzcon/en/event-info/) You'll have until September 24, 5pm Pacific to cancel your room reservation, so if you even think you may be going, I'd suggest booking a room ASAP! See you there!

Mail 'Mog: Love Is In The Air

Patch 5.1
Hi everyone! So, I've been holding onto these [Firemane Leggings] ever since a friend gave them to me back in Burning Crusade (only because he didn't have a mail wearing toon at the time lol). And because the world event [Love is in the Air] has started today (Sunday, Feb. 10 - Saturday, Feb. 23), I decided to attempt a mail 'mog based on these super sexy pants!

Firstly, I have to say that it is really unfortunate that these pants are not a part of a complete mail set! If you are a plate wearer however, you're in luck because [Bloodscale Plate] is a complete set. The closest you can come to a complete mail set with this look is by using pieces from the [Brigade Mail] set, but you sacrifice some color matching since the Brigade set is a darker, rusty looking shade of pink.

With that said, instead of lazily using the Brigade Mail, I threw together a [hopefully not TOO tacky] transmog set just for Love is in the Air! I hope you like it!

Head: Hidden
Shoulders: [Spaulders of Sealing]
Chest: [Royal Decorated Armor]
Bracers: Hidden by the gloves.
Gloves: [Vek'lor's Gloves of Devastation]
Belt: [Brigade Girdle]
Pants: [Firemane Leggings]
Boots: [Inferno Forged Boots]
Main Hand: [Merciless Gladiator's Fleshslicer]
Off Hand: [Fel Iron Hatchet]

Please note that the pieces I've used for this 'mog that are not Class Specific, so hunters may also enjoy this sexy set if they want to! You hunters even have a couple more options of items to use for the gloves and boots that share the same model and colors! I have not looked for a ranged weapon to match this set, so you're on your own for that one! XD

Please tell me what you think and leave a comment below! I'd appreciate it a LOT! And I'm thinking of attempting a regularly scheduled Shaman Mog article if anyone is interested! We'll see! Thanks!
