Quoting the official battle dot net website:

The battle for Pandaria is approaching a fever pitch. Her resources are plundered. Her earth is scoured. The Alliance and the Horde are at each other’s throats – but great dangers lurk within their own ranks.

While Warchief Garrosh Hellscream’s excavation squads bore deep into Pandaria’s Vale of Eternal Blossoms in search of chthonic power, Taran Zhu, lord of the Shado-Pan, grows increasingly concerned about the presence of outsiders in his homeland. Meanwhile, in search of new soldiers to shore up his war in Pandaria, King Varian Wrynn has been forced to turn to the Dark Iron Dwarf Princess Moira for aid.

The struggle for Pandaria threatens to engulf all Azeroth, and you’re at the forefront of the conflict.

I am also excited about the following wow content/lore updates:

  • Battlefield:Barrens (I won’t give spoilers but this will be the staging point for the Darkspear rebellion)
  • Cool new character title “Darkspear Revolutionary” for the Horde (sorry I have no active alliance toon to get the counterpart title “Hordebreaker”)
  • Level 85-90 XP requirements reduced by 33% in this patch. (Yo! Time to max the alts!)

I really love the Warcraft lore so I’m glad that finally Vol’jin and the Darkspears are now leading some revolt against Garrosh. I have just finished reading the Tides of War novel several weeks ago, and every time I see Garrosh in-game I make it a point to “/rude” him whichever toon I’m logged in 🙂 . I also remember doing some wow scenario last year (the one where Garrosh ordered Vol’jin killed but the troll shadow hunter mon survived) and I’m loving how this “oust Garrosh” plot is turning out.

Cant wait til my wow weekend!!!

Dreamhost Increases .Com and .Net Domain Pricing to USD 11.95

I got several domains at Dreamhost, and they have advised their users that effective June 15, 2013, they will be increasing the price for .com and .net domain registration and renewals to $11.95 per year.

I learned about this change because Dreamhost occasionally sends “catchy” announcements via their newsletter (see below)

Hi Menard,

Last year in January our domain provider, Verisign, hit us with a price increase for .com and .net registrations, with another increase coming in July for .net. As irritating as these increases have been for us, we’re sorry to say that any protests regarding these increases have fallen on deaf ears. We’ve held off on passing this increase to our customers for an entire year simply because we didn’t want to believe it was true.

However, we are sad to report that we’ve allowed reality’s harsh embrace to alter our thinking on domain pricing for .com and .net domains. As of June 15, 2013, we will be increasing the price for .com and .net domain registration and renewals to $11.95 per year.

Due to our commitment to non-profit organizations and all of the good work that they do, we will NOT be increasing the price for “.org” domain registrations and renewals at this time. They will stay at the current rate of $9.95 per year.

We’re sorry to be the bearers of bad news and wish we didn’t have to follow in Verisign’s footsteps on this, but them’s the breaks.

Thanks for your understanding.

Should you have any questions please contact us at [email protected]

-The No-So-Happy DreamHost Domain Registration Team

I’m fine with this price increase as their domain reservation and renewal services are good. Thanks to Dreamhost team for this timely announcement!

 

Free The Croods Game Cheats and Tips: 1.1.0 Updates and Level 21 Cheats

Some updates to my Free The Croods Game Cheats Saga series 🙂

croods-1.1.0

The Croods Game got some update via Google Play Store before the month of May started. The Croods Game Version 1.1.0 update gives out some exciting twist to the game. The Croods animals each now have their own favorite decorations and this will boost resource build time by 5% each.

In the above Croods Game screenshot, the 3 decorations around the Fish Cat gives 5% boost each

So my The Croods Game tip for the day will be to give each of your important and critical animal homes their favorite decorations.

The Croods Game Level 20 Level up is also great as it will give Free 100 Croods crystals as a reward. But what find amazing is that Level 21 is still coming soon.

Because I want to enjoy The Croods Game I tried some experiment that I hope can result to The Croods Game Level 21 cheats 🙂 . For the last 2 weeks I tried concentrating and finishing Grug’s Forklift invention

croods-lvl21-foklift-final

but I am not impressed with the results.

Yes stockpiling sticks and stones completes Grug’s Forklift invention and will reward free 30,000 coins, but the wait process is very very long (Zeaver home build-wait-time is around 190+ hours and the zeaver is very slow and can only produce 3 sticks at a time). And after completing forklift invention, you will just see this message:

croods-lvl21-forklift-wait-update

🙁 and all quests are coming soon:

 

croods-lvl21-grug

 

That ends my much anticipated The Croods Game Level 21 cheats.

I hope Rovio will give some The Crood game updates soon…
