The chatter about Blizzard’s declining subscription count to their epic game World of Warcraft has been going on for many years now, and doesn’t seem to be slowing down. The latest expansion of the game, Legion, was one of Blizzard’s last attempt to restore their lost fan-base. Did it live up to it’s expectations, or did it further add to the problems that they are facing?
In preparation for Legion, Blizzard announced all sorts of features that were promised to please what veterans had been asking for. Below we will cover the core of these changes:
- PvP Abilities – For years, the balance of PvP in WoW has been the heart of the problems for many years. Until Legion, pretty much all abilities were usable, no matter where you were. Now there is a better balance of abilities that are available to your character when in player on player combat. This lead Blizzard to create a PvP-only talent tree, that only applies when in PvP combat. The aspect of grinding out gear via the honor and conquest system has also been replaced with honor ranks, that give you a way to unlock these PvP talents.
- Legendary Items – In past expansions, the introduction of legendary items typically meant that only select classes will be able to use it. This got more fair over recent expansions by using items that everyone can equip like rings and cloaks, but this caused characters to become even more homogeneous instead of being unique and different. In Legion, each class gets their own legendary weapons, varying from spec to spec, which then gets powered up.
- Class Order Halls – Similar to how garrisons worked in the Draenor expansion, players have a city that they can help build up, and share with other players of the same class. Class Orders also changed the follower system by lowering the number of them, but increasing the players ability to customize them. Don’t worry though, the missions are still similar, so you are still able to farm some gold with your followers so that you aren’t forced to buy wow gold ideal just to keep up with everyone else.
At the end of the day, it just doesn’t seem like Blizzard put in enough effort to really win back their lost player base, but at the same time, is it actually possible at all? Even if the game was reverted back to the way it originally was, there would still be a large chunk of players that would be alienated. So far the jury is still out on whether or not Legion has been a success, but it seems like the direction that Blizzard will take from here on will hinge on the success or failure of Legion.
In this day and age it’s becoming increasingly popular to have a work shop at home with various tools that would help with fixing things around the house, or even just for hobby. With new technology coming out and pricing going down for older models, it’s no wonder this trend is happening.
One tool in particular has dropped drastically recently is air compressor machines. The reason air compressors are worth mentioning is because they be useful for a variety of situations. If you ever have a project or something you’d like to fix that would require a nail gun, nothing would work better for extended periods like an air compressor. Same thing goes for painting, with a compressor you can easily spray paint large items and save yourself lots of time and labor. Interested in doing some repairs on your car from home? There are many areas of the car that make it impossible to undo bolts with conventional tools, that’s when an air compressor paired with an air ratchet tool would come to the rescue.
As you can tell, you are really only limited by your creativity when it comes to utilizing an air compressor. It’s the perfect addition to a work shop at home or any shop in general. The versatility of it crosses many different purposes and it’s low price make it a great investment. You can find the perfect one for you by simply searching Google for air compressor reviews and selecting a purchasing guide like this one http://airtoolresource.com/best-air-compressor-reviews. It’s important to keep in mind that not all air compressors are created equal, and you will need to find one that suits how much use you are looking to get out of it, as well as how much space you have to spare and whether or not you need it to be portable at all.
Think of all the utensils that you have in your kitchen. Now think about how long it’s been since you’ve replaced most of them. You probably get a new set of forks, spoons, and butter knives every couple holiday seasons – but what about your knives. Many households use the same knives for years on end without even thinking about replacing them or sharpening them. For the vast majority, they don’t even notice how dull and useless their current knives are because they are so used to it from using the same ones over the years.
What I suggest to everyone out there is – get yourself a new set of knives. Maybe even spend a little bit more than you typically would, because in this day and age, you really do get what you paid for. It’s time to stop buying the cheap china set from Walmart, and step up to something a bit more artisan. I’m not saying you have to order some special hand-forged work of art from overseas, but maybe indulge in a nice set that is still convenient to purchase.
I personally suggest buying a set of ceramic knives. I say set because if you get just one, you will end up wanting more of them so you might as well just get them all at the same time. The best part is, you can just simply search Google for something like Best Ceramic Knives and there are already guides out there to help you pick the set that best matches your needs, like by prices, or by the reviews that the knives receive.
I myself choose to go with the Rihachan ceramic knife set. As soon as you pick one of them up you can immediately tell the difference from a typical steel blade knife. Ceramic is much lighter which is great for someone that has to wield a knife for long periods of time doing lots of chopping and dicing work in the kitchen for prep.
Evans Timothy Fosu Fosu-Mensah, a player for the English football team Manchester United, was born on January 2nd 1998 in Amsterdam. He plays as either a defensive midfielder, center back, or full back. Evans has a brother, Alfons Fosu-Mensah, who plays for North Ferriby United. He began his career with Ajax before moving to England in 2014 and has played for Manchester United’s youth teams in a variety of positions. In February of 2016, he made his professional debut in a 3-2 Premier League win at home to Arsenal. In October of 2016, he signed a contract with Manchester United to be with them through 2020, with the option to extend for another year.
Another newer player, whose been with the team since 2014, is Luke Paul Hoare Shaw, who was born in England on July 12th 1995. Shaw plays as a left back for Manchester United and was originally a member of Southampton’s youth system. In June of 2014, he signed a 4 year contract with Manchester United for a (then) record transfer fee of 30 million. The football team Chelsea was also interested in Shaw, but backed away for fear that his excessive pay demands would cause friction with the other players. In late October of 2014, he was nominated for the Golden Boy Award, which is a prize given to the player considered to be Europe’s best young player. Just as a little history, Shaw’s first experience of international football came in 2011, when he made six appearances for the England under 16 team. Then in January of 2013, he was set to be called up for the first time to the England under 21 team. In may of 2014, he was named in Roy Hodgson’s 23 man squad for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Shaw also holds the record of being the youngest player to appear in the 2014 tournament, which was watched all over the world on the Manchester United stream.
This has always been a controversial topic, and one that isn’t often brought up in government because of how much power the lobbyist have over what goes down. I however believe alternative options to typical pain medication should be promoted equally to pharma products.
Take for example arthritis. The doctor will always be ready to prescribe some medication in the form of a pill, but what if the patient doesn’t want to take some drug that is addictive, just to get some temporary pain relief. There are all types of ideas of how to solve minor to major pain relief but the doctors don’t want to promote them because they get paid more to promote the pharma pills. One alternative is even to simply listen to an mp3 that helps with arthritis relief. I know it sounds crazy, but it apparently harnesses the power of subliminal messaging to basically get your body to help itself – if that makes sense.
Anyway, all I’m trying to get across is that you don’t want to be fulled by the doctor to take pharmaceuticals when there are other options out there.
With traveling being a multi-billion dollar industry every year, it’s no wonder that there is lots of money being spent on promotions to advertise certain cities or countries. Tourism is a major part of many economies all over the world, and it takes money to make money. If these governments don’t spend to make their areas nice and attractive to travelers, then they are missing out on a key chunk of change that the local economy so dearly needs.
That being said, it’s quite strange how some of the most magnificent places in the world seem so under-represented. Take for instance, the Vellore Golden Temple. This area is basically going to be one of the greatest wonders of the world. Just the shear size of the temple is enough to cause you to be in awe, let alone the fact that it’s all gold – real gold. It’s by far the largest of it’s kind, and truly a sight to behold. Even the area surrounding the temple is quite pleasing. It’s amazing to be living in a busy city, and the juxtaposition of being there, almost disconnected from the modern western world.
As you probably noticed, our website recently had some downtime as we were moving website providers. It took longer than expected to figure out how to transfer our system since it was so old, but the wonderful staff at Namecheap really gave us a helping hand. They even helped us out by letting us know that was a Namecheap promo that we could use to save on the migration cost.
Anyway, we apologize for being away for longer than expected but we’re glad to be back and we hope to be back soon with more news and updates.
