Official BlizzCon meeting stone can help you find your friends

Meeting Stone
BlizzCon is a great time to meet up with your WoW friends... provided you can find them. Unfortunately, the halls at the Anaheim Convention Center are usually dark, crowded, and noisy, which can make meeting up with the people you want fairly difficult, especially if the most you know of your guildies' looks is that they play a muscly green guy with a big sword. Fortunately, Blizzard is making it easier then ever to find your friends at BlizzCon, with the official BlizzCon Meeting Stone.

The Meeting Stone will be located between halls B and C in the convention center and can easily serve as the anchor point for all your social meetups. Members of the Blizzard Community Team will also be stationed around the Meeting Stone to help facilitate meetups and make sure everyone is finding who they need to. They will even be putting together an official Meeting Stone schedule so large groups can have the opportunity to reserve adequate space. If you're interested, head on over to the official Meeting Stone forums for more information, or to organize your own BlizzCon meet up!

Breakfast Topic: BlizzCon Day 1 anticipation

BlizzCon 2010 is finally here and the schedule's pretty packed for opening day. If you lucked out on a BlizzCon ticket (and had the resources to make it out to Anaheim), you might be hard-pressed to choose which panel to attend, given that there are two stages where panels happen simultaneously. On top of that, the world's best StarCraft II and World of Warcraft arena players duke it out on separate areas, as well. After the opening ceremonies, there'll be a showcase of Diablo III gameplay concurrent with a showing of StarCraft II cinematics; these are followed by a World of Warcraft dungeons & raids panel and StarCraft II secrets of the masters; after those, there's a panel on WoW quests & lore, as well as a discussion on SC2 custom maps and editor; finally there's a live raid for WoW and a Q&A on the SC2 storyline. To close the first day, there are the costume, song, and dance contests which I'm fairly certain will be on everyone's itinerary.

One easy way to go about BlizzCon would be to just follow one game, such as World of Warcraft, and attend all the relevant panels. If you're like most folks who play Blizzard games, however, you're probably a big fan of everything they churn out (you're looking at BlizzCon, after all), which means picking the best panel to attend can be a bit of a dilemma. Happy problems aside, if you didn't have to choose which stage to sit in front of -- like those of us who picked up the DirectTV stream -- what part of today seems the most exciting? Personally, I think I'd have to go for WoW quests & lore. Now that we're already at Cataclysm, I can't wait to see what they've got in store for us, story-wise. Is there anything you're really looking forward to today? Or are the cooler events (e.g., the class panel) happening tomorrow? What do you think Blizzard's got up its sleeve?
BlizzCon 2010 is upon us! WoW Insider has all the latest news and information. We're bringing you liveblogging of the WoW panels, interviews with WoW celebrities and attendees and of course, lots of pictures of people in costumes. It's all here at WoW Insider!
