World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria

Mists of Pandaria is the latest expansion for Blizzard’s powerhouse World of Warcraft.  With this
expansion comes:

Level cap raised to 90

New zones to explore

A new playable race, the Pandaran

A new player class – the Monk

New dungeons and raids

New achievements

A new pet battling system

The Pandarans are Panda like creatures. The males are large and remind me of the Kung Fu Panda.  I was not sure how I would feel about a “fluffy” toon, but I must say, they are fun.  Despite their size they move very gracefully and give a distinct Asian theme to the game.

Con Recap: Wizard World Ohio Part 2

When last we met to talk about this con, it was Friday night and I was zonked out in the hotel room. At least I think that’s where we left off. If it’s not just go with it. That way we can talk all about Saturday!

Con Recap: Wizard World Ohio Part 1

Like any con that I attend, this one started out with travel. I am thrilled to report that my 5 hour drive to the Columbus area was uneventful. Pretty exciting start, huh? Don’t worry. I promise it gets better.

My first stop was to check into my hotel room. Now, since we’re still pretty small, we went with a pretty small priced hotel. Someday though, we’ll be among the awesome who stay at convention hotels. Luckily, I don’t mind a bit of adventure when it comes to staying in a hotel. Besides, quite often I walk away with a story to tell. This con choice? The Microtel on Stringtown Road in Grove City. Yep, Stringtown Road. I think I giggled every single time the gps told me to get off there. It’s just such a fun name...
