Unique Icy Veins Death Knight Armor Set by Handclaw

Recommended Posts

Artist Arthur "Handclaw" Lorenz has been all over the WoW headlines recently, with his incredible envisioning of special armor sets for every single race/class combination, but there was a bit of a catch: he didn't include all the newly forged Death Knights that opened up with the Shadowlands pre-order. In an upcoming interview we discussed this with the man himself, and during the conversation he came up with the idea of making a special armor set for us, and since there's a distinct lack of DKs in his lineup, that's the set that he drew for us! And just in case all that wasn't awesome enough, since all of his armor sets have a racial theme, the Icy Veins Death Knight armor set is being worn by an Ogre! So if (or, let's face it, when) Ogres are added as a playable race to the game, we officially claim all DKs as our own.

A truly awesome piece and we've very thankful for the effort and how amazing it turned out. We can now pair it with the one we got from our other favorite artist, Valdihr,and start an Icy Veins-themed art collection!

You can hear all about Handclaw and his journey to all those sets tomorrow in our in-depth interview, but for now here's a snippet with some more good news!

Quote

Speaking of ALL the race/class combos, Shadowlands has created a problem for you, as now all races can be Death Knights. Any plans to complete/update the collection? It’s “only” 10 additional sets after all!

Yes, I do plan to complete them. I did put them off for a bit to focus on some other projects first, but I do want to finish them for sure. After all, I included Death Knights already with the Vulpera and Mechagnomes, so I can't leave the rest hanging.

For a second I thought it was because the original/old Icy Veins raid guide videos were from the perspective of a frost DK, man how time flies by.

      Here's a classic tale of Dagpit and Goliath as a raid group didn't quite manage to kill Fatescribe Roh-Kalo on their own in the Sanctum, but then rose the hero they needed and saved the day.
      We've seen plenty of everyone's dead raid boss kills where the Necrolord Heirmir or Venthyr Draven Soulbinds pull a post-death victory, but this one is much more old-school. In a massively understated post titled "MvP Imp", SnooDoodles3070 shared their experience of the raid fully wiping on the Fatescribe extremely close to the end, but then the new DPS king of the raid arrived. Now sure, the boss still had dots and such on him, but everyone else was dead and it sort of looks like the tiny firebolt was the one getting the final blow, so clearly the imp was the one responsible for the win!

      Also, just so we're clear and don't detract from this heroic demon's identity, the name probably isn't Dagpit, I just used that for the expression at the start. But whatever that little demon's name is, he is now a legend among Warlocks and imps alike and we salute it!

      In Eternity's End, players will be able to obtain new Hawk mounts through Protoform Synthesis, a new crafting system native to Zereth Mortis. In this post, we preview all tints and the mount special animation.
      Hawk mounts have 3 tints. All of them can be obtained through Protoform Synthesis.
      Desertwing Hunter
      "Desertwing hunters were created to fill the skies of the Shadowlands."

      Mawdapted Raptora
      "Since the Jailer's incursion, some new raptora have been synthesized by Zereth Mortis specifically capable of resisting the corrupting influence of the Maw."

      Raptora Swooper
      "The raptora swooper was one of the earliest and most vicious iterations of its kind, perfectly suited for its ecological niche. The swoopers synthesized today are identical to those created in eons past, right down to their temperament."

      Finally, here's the mount special animation.

      The fourth week of Patch 9.1.5 is ending soon, so we looked at the Tier List for Mythic+.
      Disclaimer
      In this post, we're taking a look at the tier list for Mythic+ based on the data gathered by Benched.me. The site plots all runs available from the Blizzard API (excluding the Chinese region) on a single ridge plot, so the data is different from our Shadowlands Mythic+ Rankings maintained by Petko.
      How the Data is Calculated
      To rank all specializations, Benched.me uses something called Meta Ratio Score. The "ratio" is between the specialization's representation in the meta vs. its representation in the population. For example, a specialization makes up 3% of all players in the population, but 6% in the meta, which means that spec's ratio is 6% / 3% = 2.
      Furthermore, the site defines the "population" as all keys level 2 through 15 and the "meta" as keys 16 and above. Based on that, we break down specs into tiers based on their meta ratio as follows:
      S-Tier: Ratio of at least 1.5. A-Tier: Ratio between 1 and 1.5. B-Tier: Ratio between 0.5 and 1. C-Tier: Ratio below 0.5, but greater than 0. F-Tier: Ratio of 0 (the spec isn't present in the high-level bin at all). Class / Specialization Mythic+ Tier List (Patch 9.1.5 Week #4)
      S-Tier
      We've got two specializations in the S-Tier.
      Affliction Warlock - 1.73 meta ratio Subtlety Rogue - 1.51 meta ratio A-Tier
      Fire Mage - 1.36 meta ratio Outlaw Rogue - 1.26 meta ratio Windwalker Monk - 1.26 meta ratio Guardian Druid - 1.23 meta ratio Restoration Shaman - 1.18 meta ratio Brewmaster Monk - 1.17 meta ratio Holy Paladin - 1.16 meta ratio Marksmanship Hunter - 1.14 meta ratio Balance Druid - 1.12 meta ratio Arms Warrior - 1.09 meta ratio Elemental Shaman - 1.09 meta ratio Frost Mage - 1.08 meta ratio Arcane Mage - 1.04 meta ratio Discipline Priest - 1.01 meta ratio B-Tier
      Shadow Priest - 0.99 meta ratio Vengeance Demon Hunter - 0.98 meta ratio Unholy Death Knight - 0.95 meta ratio Havoc Demon Hunter - 0.94 meta ratio Blood Death Knight - 0.93 meta ratio Fury Warrior - 0.89 meta ratio Holy Priest - 0.89 meta ratio Survival Hunter - 0.87 meta ratio Protection Paladin - 0.85 meta ratio Beast Mastery Hunter - 0.81 meta ratio Protection Warrior - 0.78 meta ratio Restoration Druid - 0.78 meta ratio Assassination Rogue - 0.77 meta ratio Feral Druid - 0.72 meta ratio Mistweaver Monk - 0.71 meta ratio Enhancement Shaman - 0.68 meta ratio Frost Death Knight - 0.68 meta ratio Destruction Warlock - 0.67 meta ratio Demonology Warlock - 0.64 meta ratio Retribution Paladin - 0.55 meta ratio SEASON 2 PLOT

      We've now seen how big Zereth Mortis actually is, so now let's find out how we get there! Here are two datamined (and very much work in progress) cutscenes that cover how we manage to enter the new patch 9.2 zone, as LeystTV gives us a look! We find out how the final sigil is crafted as well, where exactly we cross over into Zereth Mortis, and who's coming with us:
