Blizzard are currently running a competition to find out which Warcraft villains are the worst of the worst! Check out who is in the running and get your votes in!


The contest will be taking place through Twitter and Facebook, with polls being put out for players to vote who is the worst in each poll. The contenders are as follows:

  • The Lich King - After committing atrocities such as slaughtering his own father and destroying his homeland, Arthas Menethil went on to become the leader of the scourge. Despite Arthas being killed eventually, the Lich King lives on, keeping control of the scourge across Azeroth.
  • Illidan Stormrage - His thirst for power led him to betray his people during the War of the Ancients in an attempt to serve a higher purpose. His unending lust for Legion blood meant he embraced the power that Sargeras bestowed upon him, using it to eventually combat the Legion. Illidan fell into dark times after the Third War, however, and ended up transforming into a demon through the magic of the Skull of Gul'dan.
  • Kil'jaeden - As one of the three brothers approached by Sargeras to act as leaders of the Burning Legion, Kil'jaeden has a wealth of power at his disposal. Unlike his brother Archimonde, Kil'jaeden was never intended as a front-line general. This hateful being would prepare worlds to be conquered, his magical prowess unrivaled by his brother. He would scout worlds and races to be recruited into the Legion, twisting their minds to evil.
  • Deathwing - Formerly the aspect of earth, Deathwing was driven to madness by the Old Gods. He committed one of the most horrible atrocities in Warcraft history after convincing the other aspects to place their power into the artifact he had created, the Demon Soul. After countless support from Malygos, the blue dragon had to watch as Deathwing slaughtered nearly every blue dragon in existence, as well as his consorts. Deathwing has forever fiddled in the matters of humans, trying to bring about his ultimate goal, ending life on Azeroth and reforging the world in his image.
  • C'thun - After being imprisoned in Ahn'Qiraj, this old god freed itself and began corrupting the life around it. This Old God is the embodiment of evil, with the goal of destroying Azeroth and everything the titans came to create. Known for his deathly whispers, this god-like figure seeks to kill everyone that opposes it in some pretty gruesome ways: "Your heart will explode."
  • Ragnaros - The Firelord of the elemental planes and slayer of the son of Al'Akir, he sought to burn down the world tree Nordrassil, which was then defended by Malfurion and Cenarius. He has a problem with waking up early, so make sure you only summon him after he's had a proper nap! Sorry Executus!
  • Algalon the Observer - After the death of Loken, the titan watcher, Algalon was summoned to investigate what had happened. He was prepared to completely re-originate Azeroth, thereby "restarting" the planet and killing all life. We manage to stop him doing so, but it might still be on the cards!
  • Murlocs - Beings of true evil, these small fish-like creatures know nothing but war. They prey on unsuspecting low-levels, hoping to beat them out of their villages. While you can reason with a kobold by bringing them a candle, these murlocs will try to bite your arm off if you attempt any reasoning! Whatever you do, don't wander too far into the water, or you'll find yourself swarmed by these horrible little creatures!

So, now that we know who's competing, make sure you follow the @Warcraft Twitter to get your votes in on who is the most evil!

      A new week with new chances for beta keys!
      It's a new week and the perfect opportunity to give out a new batch of beta keys for Battle for Azeroth! This week, we're going to be putting multiple contests into certain news posts that discuss something WoW-related. Each post will act as a separate contest that users can enter, with a total of 4 going live on the forums and an additional 1 on Twitter.
      We understand that it can be tough to keep track of which contest is where, so this post will act as a homepage for the upcoming contests. You can check back here to see exactly which contests are live, what you have to do to enter and how many keys are being given away.
      Please note that you cannot enter any contests on this post directly; you will need to follow the link to the contest and enter there.
      Here is the list of this week's contests:
      [FORUM] Giveaway 1 - [Closed] All winners for G1 have been contacted by PM. [FORUM] Giveaway 2 - [Closed] All winners for G2 have been contacted by PM.

      We wish any entrants the best of luck in each giveaway they enter and hope that we'll see many of you enjoying the beta shortly after! For any questions you might have about this post or the giveaways, you can ask them in this thread and I will do my best to answer them promptly.

      So, we have another 25 beta keys to share with our community and we thought we'd go a little historical this time around, focusing on the raiding aspect of WoW. Since we do raid race coverage here at Icy Veins and have plenty of top raiders in our guide writing ranks, it only seems apt for us to try and find out which guild our community thinks was the best of all time.
      Personally, I'm clearly biased, as I used to play in Nihilum, who were at the very top for a while there at the start of WoW, but don't worry, all you have to do is actually vote and you'll be eligible for a key, there's no actual "correct" answer and we've also provided an option for those of you who don't know any of these guilds. And if you want to check some stats on the various guilds, just so you can get it right, you can head on over to Method's World Fist Timeline.
      So, let's see who comes out on top, and if you don't have a strong opinion on the matter, just go for the last poll answer! You can also check out out main giveaway thread as there will be one more this week or you can just keep an eye out on the frontpage!

      The Legion Companion App will serve as the main World of Warcraft mobile application from July 11 and onwards to Battle for Azeroth.
      After the retirement of the Remote Auction House, it is time to bid farewell to the WoW Mobile Armory App as well. Players will have a single mobile application, since the Legion Companion App will be converted into a new WoW Companion App, which will contain new features from Battle for Azeroth as well as favourite features from the original application (probably the guild chat).
      We just hope this application maintains its light size, unlike the Hearthstone game app!

      As of July 11, 2018, we will no longer be supporting the World of Warcraft Mobile Armory app. But this isn’t the end of the road, as we’re continuing to develop and improve our mobile offering for World of Warcraft.
      As a part of our commitment to providing WoW players with a living, connected experience on multiple fronts, we are transitioning away from the current World of Warcraft Mobile Armory app and will be converting the Legion Companion App into a new WoW Companion App in the future. As part of that, we’ll be incorporating many of your favorite World of Warcraft Armory app features along with features for Battle for Azeroth into a new shared app for a more streamlined experience. Stay tuned for more information.

      It's time to get creative! We're giving away 25 Battle for Azeroth Beta keys to those who come up with the most fun and unique WoW character name.
      It does not matter whether you're creating a new character or not, we want to see fun World of Warcraft character names you can come up with down in the comments!

      Reply to this thread with the Character name of your choice and don't forget to include your Class/Race/Specialization if applicable.  Be creative and make us laugh! We're not interested in seeing names that can easily be found on Google's Page #1 search. Example entries: Oprahwindfury (Shaman), Restorafarian (Druid), DrShocktopus (Shaman), Retbull (Retribution Paladin - Tauren), Priestitute (Priest), etc. Check out our Giveaway Rules and Information for more details about giveaways in general.

We are looking forward to reading your entries!
      🍀Good luck!🍀

      Several redditors spotted a new entry in the beta/PTR event calendar, featuring the pre-expansion event. It's already started on the PTR and it's called the War of the Thorns, featuring conflict in Darkshore for control of Teldrassil. Now, we know how that particular "control" ends up, but hopefully the event itself won't be as fire-y!
      Also, based on the length of the event, it seems most likely we'll be seeing it come up on live servers on or around July 17th, if we assume it will last until the expansion launch itself, so we have a little over three and a half weeks until we see the pre-expansion event and the pre-patch itself as well! It's a little unclear if the Battle for Lordaeron will be part of the pre-patch or will be available at launch, so the date might actually be a little earlier since it seems logical that the events won't overlap, as one is caused by the other. so another possible date would be July 10th.

      Also, check out what you should do before the pre-patch goes live, as there are achievements to be had that will be removed.
