UPDATE Thank you very much to our two volunteers for the Blizzcon LiveBlogging team! So far we have help covering the event on Friday but I will still need help with the event on Saturday. We will be using coveritlive, tonight Fimlys and I should have it all set up and ready to go. Please please please contact me if you are able to help out on Saturday as I can promise I will not be able to cover all of the relevant information in all the panels alone. Since I’ll be parked in front of my office computer I plan on being in Skype as well, so folks can call in to give some opinions or reviews of their own, and anyone liveblogging can chat back and forth to get some cross-pollination of the panels. Please let me know quickly if you are able to join us!
This year I am once again unable to go to Blizzcon, but I will be enjoying the coverage from home with the DirecTV streaming package just as I did last year.
I volunteered to do some liveblogging of the event here on TNB and I told Fimlys and Hydra I’d like to put together a small team so we can make sure to get coverage of each event. So this is the call to arms.
Will you be watching the Blizzcon coverage from home this year? Would you like to liveblog one or more of the events while doing so, and have the opportunity to share your views and opinions on what is taking place as it happens? Here is your chance!
Send an email to email@example.com and put in the subject line “Blizzcon Liveblogging Team” and I will compile a list of all those wanting to liveblog the event and we’ll get together in either a collaborative doc or in chat of some type and go over the event schedule and who would like to blog what.
I know for me personally, the events taking place early in the event on Friday will be difficult as I am working that day, so having some assignments for those events would be a huge help.
Thanks everyone, and I look forward to being able to participate in the event with everyone, even if I am on the opposite end of the country!
- When is it?: This live show is scheduled for Saturday, October 1st at 8pm PT (11pm ET). Not sure what time that is for you? Use this handy-dandy time converter!
- Where do I go? To participate on the live show, you will need to go to the TNB Live Show page to connect with the stream. See, totally easy. If you are having issues then go to the Ustream page. Don’t forget to register/login to UStream so you can chat with us!
- Some general ground rules:
- Be nice. If you say very inappropriate things be aware you will be kicked from the room. We are doing this to have a great time, come with a beer, come during a raid, come how you wish, just don’t come to cause trouble.
- You may ask questions to the participants during the show, but we reserve the right to use them if and when we can. We will be monitoring the chat room and if we can we will use the comments during the show. We love that you are with us, but we will have to weave them in. Even if it isn’t asked, we all appreciate your questions!
Outside of that, we will love to have you join us and partake in an enlightening discussion that is sure to follow! Hope to see you there!
||We welcome Apple from Azeroth Apple this week and while we might have had to “bleep” out a few things she said, it was really fun having her (and her cat) on the show!

This RSS was a suggestion by Apple (aka Azeroth Apple) and Rades and I would like to thank both of them for such a wonderful pick! More suggestions for WoW resources are ALWAYS appreciated! =)
The Visual Roleplay Gear List is a dream come true for every player in WoW wanting to partake in Transmogrification coming out in patch 4.3 shortly.
This site so wonderfully compiles a vast array of gear sets, both tiers and just matching outfits, by armor class, and with links and instructions to acquire the pieces, that it will instill hope in the hearts of even the most pessimistic folks who feel they will never put together their own unique kit.
That was a long sentence. Sorry about that. Two short ones should make up for it.
I will not admit how much time I spent while at work looking through The Visual Roleplay Gear List deciding what the perfect look will be for my Holy Paladin, or my Assassination Rogue. It was a lot. Hours, likely.
Stop reading this, and go “dress shopping.” You will thank me. And Apple. And Rades.
Go there, go shopping, enjoy!

Hello Everyone! I’d like you to join me in welcoming Garrosh Hellscream of The Warchief’s Command Board.
We all know Garrosh Hellscream as the…shall we say…polarizing Warchief of the Horde. What you may not know about him, though, is that he’s recently discovered the joys of the internet, and has added his own unique (and often loudly irritated) voice to the blogosphere. In his journey from Nagrand to Northrend to Orgrimmar to cyberspace, Garrosh has accumulated a wealth of experience (yet a poverty of sophistication…) to share…and if there’s one thing we know about Garrosh, he’s not one to hesitate to share what’s on his mind.
The Warchief’s Command Board offers us a window into the life of Garrosh, and all the trials and frustrations that comes with being the orc in charge. With the occasional aid of his in-house tech goblin Spazzle, Garrosh shares his thoughts on the state of Azeroth and invites us along for his many colorful experiences. So far he’s paid a visit to some of the Horde’s outposts around Kalimdor, gotten trolled in Barrens chat, fielded some rather pointed questions from his mailbag, and even treated us to a few samples of his very own attempts at poetry (no, really). Oh, and struggled to figure out the delete key. That one seems to be an ongoing issue. Hopefully Spazzle can help straighten that out for him.
Poor Garrosh! So many problems, so little time! I mean, just take a look at the all of the mail that he receives! No wonder he’s so stressed out and angry all the time! I mean, it seems to me that all the poor man wants to do is enjoy some of his delicious Lemon Squares in peace! Of course, there is also all of the travel that keeps a warchief away from home. Not to mention that insufferable goblin that is always underfoot! I suppose it is certainly easy to see why he appears to be so angry! When really, he’s just hungry and travel weary. Maybe if he took a day at the spa down in Feralas.
I know that I certainly can’t wait to see what other adventures Garrosh partakes in! Welcome to the blogosphere, Garrosh Hellscream!
