      We are looking for a transmogrification writer to help curate our transmog section.
      We need someone who is a fan of transmogrification and has transmogrification experience on all or most classes. Having a blog or something to showcase that is a definite plus. We also want someone with a lot of free time (output is important, because there is so much to cover).
      As always, when we post this kind of offers, this is a paid position with earnings shared between us and the writer on the guides and articles they will write.
      Applicants should send an e-mail to jobs@icy-veins.com with as many details as possible. The deadline for applying is the 2nd of November at 00:00 GMT.

      We're teaming up with J!NX once again to bring you a chance to win a fantastic hoodie from their WoW collection! Check out the post to see how to win!
      The winners of the contest have been contacted via our forums. We will not be listing the winners' names to ensure there is no trading or selling of the codes used. If you have any problems, contact me (Blainie) via the forums.
      We're just around the corner from the release of the latest expansion, Legion, and J!NX are celebrating even more new additions to their line of WoW clothing and accessories. We're teaming up with J!NX to giveaway 12 hoodies from the World of Warcraft section on their website!
      Here are some of the possible hoodie designs that you could be winning:

      The brand new "Crossed Warglaives" design. (Unisex)

      Alliance hoodie design. (Alliance version / Horde version)

      Illidan hoodie design. (Unisex)
      How can I enter?
      First things first, you'll need to head to the WoW section on J!NX and take a look at the hoodies they have on offer. Let us know which hoodie you would want in a comment below, as well as a link to the one you're talking about! We've pre-filtered the site for you so that you can already see a full list of the hoodies available here.
      Note: Just as with the previous giveaway, your hoodie of choice MUST belong to the World of Warcraft collection.
      Rules
      The contest will run until the 12th September, 2016 (23:59 CEST). We will be choosing 12 winners to receive a code for their hoodie of choice. The codes will only work for hoodies in the World of Warcraft section. The winners will be selected randomly from the comments on this post that include the required information. Double entries will be removed. You may only enter once. Any cheating will immediately disqualify that user - this includes using multiple accounts to enter.

      In a new tradition, we're going to be starting up our first monthly giveaway! Check it out for your chance to win some great prizes just in time for Legion!
      Winners 
      We announced the winners of the giveaway over on our Twitter, but if you're wondering if you're one of the lucky ones, here's the Twitter names of the three winners drawn:



      All three winners have been contacted via Twitter DM, which should also spark a notification in your e-mail!
      -----
      As many of you most likely haven't noticed, these past few weeks have been pretty great for Icy Veins. We've hit a few milestones on a number of different social media outlets, including 40,000 likes on Facebook, 30,000 followers on Twitter and the recent establishment of our Twitch channel. Without all of you wonderful people, we wouldn't have been able to do it, so we wanted to start up a small tradition to help thank everyone that has helped turned Icy Veins into what it is.
      We're going to be starting up monthly giveaways that will range from game to game, depending on what we can give away that month! Since we're just starting things off, we thought about might be important this month and Legion of course came to mind. In order to celebrate it, we're going to be giving our users a chance to get a mount and a pet from the Blizzard WoW store. It can be any combination, as long as you choose one of each! For those of you that aren't familiar with the potential prizes, you can check them out here.
      Note: The prizes for this month are quite restricted due to the fact that Landro in Booty Bay currently does not work. We are staying away from any prizes associated with the TCG game or Blizzcon rewards since you currently cannot redeem them.
      We'll be picking 3 winners, each getting their own bundle, but there are a few rules in place:
      Since the giveaways are monthly, we want to chain them together nicely, so they will run from the first day of the month to the last.  We will be using Gleam to run the giveaways. You can only enter by using the methods listed on the Gleam page. There are 7 ways in total to give yourself chances to win. There is no bias between the different methods - 1 entry is 1 entry, none count more than others. You can use this link to enter the giveaway; it will take you to the Gleam entry page. The site is completely safe to authorize and is used widely for giveaways, so don't worry! It's worth noting that, after entering, you can use your "share link" to gain extra entries by passing it around to your friends and getting them to enter! The more you share, the more entries you get!
      Good luck to you all and hopefully you're all as excited as we are for this giveaway and all the ones to come!
      Grab the chance to ride into Legion with a brand new pet and mount!
