BlizzCon 2013: Murkalot is in the mail

If you are attending BlizzCon or have the Virtual Ticket, Murkalot the battle pet should be in your mailbox. The murloc pet based on the new Crusader class for Diablo III started showing up in mailboxes on Wednesday evening.

Unlike previous event pets, Murkalot will not be showing up in all of your characters' mailboxes because pets are account-wide. I'm not sure how Blizzard picks which character to send it to. It showed up on a level 90 I haven't played in a while, but it may have been the first character I logged into after it got mailed out.

Murkalot's idle animations include disappearing into a beam of light and then falling on the ground afterward. He picks himself up and shakes himself off before returning to his ready position.

Are you attending BlizzCon virtually or physically and have you received your Murkalot yet? What do you think of him?

Just what is BlizzCon and how can I keep up with it?

If you're new to the game or play casually, you may be wondering just what all the fuss is about BlizzCon. So just what is BlizzCon and what does it mean to you?

We'll start at the beginning: BlizzCon is a convention held by Blizzard where they announce new games, hold panels with developers, let the best players in the world show off their skills in tournaments, offer hands-on demos of just-announced games, host costume and talent contests, and other fun Blizzard-centric activities. The con is held in sunny Anaheim, California on a standard Blizzard "when it's ready" schedule -- typically every couple of years. This year's convention will be on November 8 - 9th and if you want to attend... well, unfortunately tickets are sold out. However, you can still pick up a virtual ticket which will let you watch live streams from the convention floor as well as pick up some in-game goodies -- like the Murkalot pet -- for $40.

But is it worth it -- and do you even care? Well, maybe. Here's a rundown of what you can expect to happen at BlizzCon this year -- and how to keep up with the news from afar.
