BlizzCon 2011: Opening Ceremony
We have our team at BlizzCon down in Anaheim and some of us are watching the stream at home. We're bringing you the latest and liveblogging the opening ceremony plus the World of Warcraft panels. Since this is the first BlizzCon without leaks, this should be a pretty huge opening--it's confirmed there will be a new expansion for World of Warcraft, but it also looks like there will be tons of new other announcements.
Make sure to join in the discussion here in this post as if you're watching along on the stream.
Free Diablo III to WoW players via new 'Annual Pass'.
Mists of Pandaria confirmed. Level 90 cap. New class is monk. New race is pandaren.
