Ideal Cheap Hotels Guidelines

Booking into cheap hotels can lessen your expenses. However, it can still be difficult to decide where to stay even though you have gathered all the travel information you need. I’ll give you some guidelines how to find an ideal cheap hotel that won’t affect your budget.

When you check the internet, I bet that you will see various kinds of accommodation to choose from. You can take a look for a discounted room at an expensive or five-star hotel. If you are looking for a cool and fun place, try to stay in a hostel. If you want to explore more and feel the nature, camping will be the cheapest choice and frequently the most unforgettable accommodation.

Accommodation rates depend on the occasion of the year and fall or winter seasons which offer more discounts. Try to visit the place you want to travel during off-peak seasons for the reason that you can have the advantages which there are only small numbers visiting the tourist attractions you want to go to.

When you book an accommodation, remember to check what the other benefits offered and the facilities. Timing of your tour is the secret here. Make sure you can book a room in advance if you are traveling in a peak season. In contrast, if you are going in an off-peak season, your type of room perhaps are not needed for advance booking anymore. You can also get an advantage if you visit their websites that offers discounts especially if it’s already a last minute deals.

Icarus, the Phoenix

The latest Icarus, the Phoenix, is here in DotA 6.70 map version. Icarus is a Sentinel strength type hero built. Some would say that this new hero is imba as well as Ymir, the Tuskarr. Perhaps they will make some changes of this hero for the next map update.

Icarus, The Phoenix

Here’s his background story: “Ancient scriptures spoke of seven sacred emanations of light, and of their convergence in great conflict. The collision of these rays upon the mortal realm created a pyre of the highest purity, giving birth to the mythical Phoenix. As a manifestation of divine flames, Icarus can discharge either flames of death and destruction, or of life and healing. The concentrated beam of energy that he can emit can incinerate whole armies from across the battlefield. Unafraid to utilize his own life-force in order to vanquish his enemies, Icarus can also harness the direct power of the sun to create a stellar explosion.”

Icarus Dive (D)

Phoenix dives forward in an arc with a fixed distance in the targeted direction, dealing damage and disarming any units he comes into contact with, and then orbiting back to his original position. Phoenix is magic immune during the dive but not in physical attack. You can stop the Icarus Dive manually by pressing the hotkey (D) again. Icarus Dive is helpful in escaping or run after the enemies.

Fire Spirits (F)
Born out of his own life force, Icarus creates 4 fire spirits to fly alongside him. Each spirit slowly grows in power and can be used to damage his enemies or heal his allies. It costs 10% of your current HP to cast. Fire Spirits heal allied units and damages enemy units in a 400AoE around an exploding spirit. You can manually cast it to an ally for healing or to a foe for receiving damage by pressing the hotkey (F) again.

Target Fire Spirits (F)
Targets a fire spirit towards a unit. It can only be used when Fire Spirits were called.

Sun Ray (R)
Drawing from his own inner fire, Icarus expels a huge beam of light at the cost of his own life energy. The beam slows and damages enemies for a percentage of their life. It costs 25% of current HP to activate. It will automatically stop if Phoenix lacks mana, casts Supernova, or if he is stunned or silenced but it doesn’t matter anyway because it has no cooldown. Phoenix loses the ability to move and to attack but by pressing (E), it allows Phoenix to move in the direction of his Sun Ray.

Sun Ray Movement (E)
Allows Phoenix to move in the direction of his Sun Ray. It can only be used when Sun Ray is unleashed.

Supernova (V)
The Phoenix willingly ends his current life for the chance to be reborn. Transforms into a burning sun that scorches enemies within 1000 range. The sun can be attacked by enemy heroes; if it is destroyed, the Phoenix dies as well. However, if the sun survives for 6 seconds all enemies in range will be stunned and the Phoenix will return to life fully regenerated. During the clash, the Phoenix should be protected. It will die if Supernova Ball is being hit with physical attack and loses HP.
