Icy Veins' 5 Years Anniversary: 200 Legion Beta Key Giveaway

Recommended Posts

I'm really looking forward to the upcoming transmog changes the most, at least out of the basic new features. The class halls and new legendary system will also hopefully add some character back to the world that has been long gone with Garrisons being the new hangout spot.

I'm actually REALLY hyped for Legion.  I feel like things have been going WAY downhill over the years since Cata, and while I still enjoy aspects of the game, I'm definitely not playing daily like I used to.  If anything, I've fallen into maybe once or twice a month.  Seeing all the new things in Legion and seeing how they hired a larger team gives me a lot of hope that this will be the expansion to get things back on track.  The biggest thing I'm looking forward to is the class halls and weapons.  I've been waiting for something to make my classes feel more unique and interesting.  Here's hoping I get a chance to try it out before release :)

What am I most looking forward to in Legion? It has to be all of the lore that will be revealed with the expansion. Starting with the Nightmare & Xavius, what happened to Gul'Dan, then later on maybe we'll see some Old God action or a glimpse of Azshara? After doing a 180 with WoD and shoving Archimonde at the end, I wonder what twists Legion will see.

 

For my favourite WoW moment, i'll pick the time me and a bunch of friends started our own guild back in MoP 5.2 and cleared ToT normal. Most of the guys I still talk to regularly biggrin.png

Of course I am stoked for the artifact weapons, but the new wardrobe feature is my biggest draw.. to actually have bag space again to farm up more transmog and toys and what not. It is the most nifty thing that they have added since transmog was implemented.. Congrats on 5 years Icy Veins! Here's to 5 more!

I'm really looking forward to the overall evolution of the monk class : I have been a WW since MoP and hope that the artifacts and class rework will bring a breath of fresh air to the class !

Ahh, a hard comment to make. So many things. I am not much of a raider, but artifact weapons compel me to maybe give it a try at a casuals pace. Mostly looking forward to wardrobe changes. It will give me something new to collect other than the pets!

 

I started in burning crusade, a rogue was my main, and a priest my alt. I thought armor mattered on my rogue and my hour long fortitude would be harder to dispel. These were the days when I had time to grind, and worked hard at getting consortium exalted for my first purple item. My rogue still has that dagger.

 

Cheers all and thank you for the website! It keeps the casual in me from looking like a total scrub.

I am really looking forward to the Challenge Modes and the Adventure Mode.  All of the class changes have me excited for what Legion has to bring.

 

My favorite moments, so far in WoW, have been all the moments that I have shared with my friends, either raiding or just having a great time.

The demon hunter and artifacts.

DH because Illidan is my favorite character along with Arthas and Garrosh.

Artifacts because ashbringer is :Q__

Looking forward to being able to swap between all specs without finding a trainer, hope they don't make it expensive. Transmog system is also exciting, gonna need lots of coffee to clean out every alt's bank and bags.

I like the idea of obtaining artifact weapons, as opposed to trying to go through a proving ground, which is easier for some classes than others. this way, tuning can be done to a particular spec, without affecting others'. Since I have at least 2 of each toon at 100, I want to experience how all of them play out.

I'm really excited for...well almost everything in Legion! I've been keeping up to date with all the news about it and I'm so glad that Legion might get me back into my true passion in this game, pvp.

 

I started playing WoW in BC but really spent all of it leveling, it wasn't until Wrath that I actually got into the game in all aspects. I raided, did arenas, did bgs, leveled alts, etc. But what I enjoyed most was pvping in arenas. My friend and I were a two man team, I was an unholy death knight and he was an arms warrior. It wasn't the greatest idea I admit but we had a lot of fun and I won't ever forget those times.

 

I'm really excited for the prestige system most of all, I can't wait for it.

I would have to say that I'm looking forward to the wardrobe in Legion. This will free up so much space in my bags and bank. Also the pvp prestige system is looking really cool.

I've personally been playing the game since it was 3 years old, and I've enjoyed every minute of it. Only recently though did i sign up for the PTR/Beta version of the game. WoD beta was fun and all but I really must say, that 5.4 PTR was so much fun for me, I still get some flashbacks when i listen to some specific music that I listened to back then. I am extremely hyped for Legion (except for the Rogue artifacts, kinda silly if you ask me) and i simply can't wait to get my hands on this expac

I am looking forward to finally seeing the long awaited battle against the legion. I can't wait to see how things turn out. One of my favorite moments was in mid wrath when i started and finally hit around lvl 70 I joined in on some old bc raids which turned out to be my first raiding experience ever. It was so much fun and the people there was awesome!

      Hello everyone,
      After 10 years of operating Icy Veins as an independent website, Vlad and I have made the decision to sell the business to Enthusiast Gaming, the company that has been providing the ads on Icy Veins for the past four years. You can find out more about Enthusiast Gaming and the deal itself by reading the press release.
      As part of the deal, Vlad and I will be staying on for the long term and we will work together with Enthusiast Gaming to not only maintain what you have come to expect from Icy Veins, but also develop new content and keep improving user experience.
      Obviously, the money played an important factor, but the deal will also allow us to manage the site in a much more effective manner. Relieved from all administrative duties, we will be able to focus fully on the content creation part and will receive help from Enthusiast Gaming to scale up operations (particularly in terms of software development).

      If you have questions, I'd be happy to answer them in the comments!

      Cyberpunk 2077 has (finally) been launched and we have spent the past days testing and writing as much as possible to prepare our wiki for the game!
      IcyWiki and Cyberpunk 2077
      For those of you that don't already know, the team here at Icy Veins started a project a while back called IcyWiki. These were wiki-style sites looking to cover a variety of games, not just Blizzard-made ones, and one of the games we were most excited to cover was Cyberpunk 2077.
      I took a personal interest in the project because, frankly, I was incredibly excited for the game and had been since the first trailer popped up, and that led to me being one of the people at the forefront of the development of the site.
      Now, after the game has released, I and others within the team have been tirelessly testing and playing the game, collecting information, and preparing the website for our users. The site isn't finished, especially not in terms of content, as the game has enough to cover in it that it could even rival WoW's level of depth (maybe not quite that much, but it's a lot). We will be working throughout the future to continue adding to the site and expanding the features available on it, so please, keep that in mind!
      What is Cyberpunk 2077?
      For those of you that have never played the game before, nor purchased it, I would definitely recommend it (at least for PC, currently). There are some issues, as noted by the community, but overall, the game is extremely fun to play. If you want to give it a look, you can take a look at one of the many trailers released.

      The game was created by CD Projekt Red, the company behind the Witcher game series, and is an FPS Action-Adventure (previously RPG). You will take on the role of V, a fully customisable mercenary (link is NSFW), who is looking to make their name in the dangerous world of Night City.
      NOTE: The text below has no spoilers, but the links to certain pages do! If you do not want any spoilers for the game, do not click on the links below!
      You will play through an amazing main story, but there are countless side quests and relationships to explore, weapons and armour to collect, cars to find, and so much more. The people you find and the conversations you have are directly impacted by the choices you make too, with certain relationships being locked behind certain behaviour (don't pick the wrong line!). For example, if you choose to start out as a Street Kid, you'll find new conversation lines to choose from whenever someone accuses you of lying - your word is your bond and you don't want anyone questioning it!
      Lifepaths aren't the only things that can affect your journey through Night City - you'll have points to spend in attributes in skills that unlock special choices and paths in the game. Got a door that's in your way? Why not rip it open with brute force by investing into the Body attribute or hack it with your Technical Ability. 
      These attributes also unlock skills, similar to specialisations in WoW, that help to bolster your skills towards a certain playstyle. Want to run through Night City as a stealthy hacker? Make sure to pick up some Intelligence and Cool attributes. If you'd rather leap into the middle of a fight with Mantis Blades, then you'll need to make sure you pick up some Reflexes attribute points.

      Contributing to the Cyberpunk IcyWiki
      Whatever your chosen playstyle may be, the game will definitely be great fun to play and maybe you'll end up getting as hooked as we are already!
      If you do start playing the game and want to help us build the content we have on the site faster, you can do so at anytime! All of our pages are open to edits by users, so if you see anything that you feel needs changing or adding, please go ahead! All help is welcome!
      If you are unfamiliar with the system and need help doing so, you can always ask in our dedicated Discord server for IcyWiki, where we will do everything we can to help you understand the system and learn how to use it. You can also give us any feedback you have for the site there.

From Exalted Orbs to unique items to look out for, this week's episode will make sure you're making the best economic decisions you can throughout the start of the Heist League.
      If you would prefer to read through a written transcript of the video, you can check that out here on PoE Vault, our sister site.
      For those of you that aren't quite ready to dive into the gritty details of the League just yet, but are still interested in giving Path of Exile a try, we have numerous build guides, as well as a guide to the Heist League and its mechanics.
