Icy Veins Meets Diablo III

Icy Veins now covers Diablo 3! Our initial content includes Barbarian and Demon Hunter builds and some crafting/farming guides. More will come very soon.

We have just released our Diablo 3 section! We currently have guides and builds for Barbarians and Demon Hunters, as well as a few crafting guides. We want to get a bit of feedback on what we have done so far, before we move on and implement the rest of the class guides. We also have a lot of ideas to tell people how to farm efficiently, but these guides will come at a later time.

As you can see if you click the Diablo III link in the menu, we have a number of guides for both Barbarians and Demon Hunters.
  • Basic guides are here to give you a technical overview of the class. These are mainly documents that you can use as a reference. For example, you have just reached Paragon level 201 and are wondering about the stats that you should max out next, in which case you should read the Paragon Points guide for your character's class. Or you have just looted what seems to be a good upgrade for your character, in which case you can read the Stats Priorities guide for your character's class, to see if the item has the proper stats (or if there is a chance to reforge it to the proper stats).
  • Next, we have a number of leveling builds for each class. With the introduction of ladder seasons in Patch 2.1, leveling is once again a core part of the game and being efficient at it is important because there are leaderboards. So, we have leveling guides for levels 1 to 10, levels 10 to 20, levels 20 to 30, levels 30 to 60, and levels 60 to 70. From levels 1 to 30, the guides simply tell you how to choose your skills and how to use them. After level 30, we start giving you choices, so you can test different playstyles and decide to play whichever you are most comfortable with.
  • Once you reach level 70, you cannot quite use an end-game build yet, because you do not have the equipment for it, so we have builds dedicated to level 70, with no gear requirement. These builds are here to help you clear content efficiently at level 70, so that you can quickly farm the gear needed to use end-game builds (which use specific synergies between spells and legendary/set items).
  • Finally, we have end-game builds, which are meant to allow you to easily clear the hardest content in the game, Torment 6 Rifts and Bounties, and progress through Greater Rifts for as long as possible.
As stated above, we would like to hear feedback about these guides so that we can improve them (if needed), before we start working on the rest of our Diablo III content.

      Could you be the next writer to join the team?
      We are currently looking for a new writer to join our team and fill the role of an Overwatch guide writer. Check out the requirements and how to apply here!
      Hello everyone!
      We are delighted to announce that we are looking for some fresh blood to enter our growing team behind the scenes of Icy Veins. We are looking to revamp and update our Overwatch section with the aid of a well-experienced flex player. Your role as a guide writer will be to use your extensive knowledge of in-game mechanics and the current competitive meta to efficiently detail strategies on how to play each hero. 
      This will be a paid position. The nature of payment will evolve as the section of the site does, with remuneration starting in the form of shared revenues based on revenues from the guides you will be writing. 
      In order to be considered for the position, you will need to meet the following requirements:
      You should have a strong grasp of the current meta in Overwatch at all levels of play, ranging from Bronze to Grand Master. You will be writing to help players of all skill levels, so it is important to understand what is needed of a player at different skill rating brackets. You should be confident in your ability to perform in every role in Overwatch, capable of playing any hero at your current skill rating bracket. Ideally, you should be currently ranked in Grand Master, with similar final skill ratings in previous seasons. You should have a strong mastery of written English, since you will be writing guides in English. You should be confident in your passion for Overwatch, since we will expect you to stay up-to-date on any meta shifts and changes by playing regularly. To apply for the position, simply send us an e-mail at jobs@icy-veins.com. The deadline for applications is the 4th December, 2017, at 23:59 CET, which is 3 weeks from the time of publication. After the deadline, we will start to respond to candidates and organise interviews for the best applicants. You will not hear back from us before the deadline.
      Good luck everyone and we look forward to reading your applications!
