    It looks good. Hopefully people will be able to deal with it having the same axe -- I think it having the same axe is a good thing, but I'm sure people will moan about it being a recolor.

    Still, even if this is just a recolor with lightning added to it, it looks good, and can be useful. The fact that it is similar to the fire shockwave only makes it yet more useful.

    Hopefully an exception will be made to allow this particular recolor. I'm giving it a 4/5.

    People probably misunderstood my objective long ago when I had been "campaigning" against most of the recolors and CnP's long ago. My objective was not to have all recolors banned forever; I just didn't like how people would make poor recolors, simply dragging the hue bar across and then re-saving their poor icons. This particular recolor, however, has had enough work on it, and is done well enough, that I think it is approvable.

    Charge effect can be more intresting released with some spiral effect around axe edge. Currently looks dramatic poor (in a case of recolor concept). But as inferno noticed - really useful as a recolor icon.

    It will probably be rejected because of lack of "free hand" but I think it's well done and useful so I vote for approval

    Recolours of original Blizzard Entertainment icons have to follow certain conditions in order to be approvable:

    • Set "Blizzard Entertainment" as the alternate author in the submission panel (Click "This resource is not mine" under "Other Fields")
    • Recolours still have to feature at least 50% freehand content, which does not apply here.
      You recoloured the whole image to a blue-ish hue (probably by setting it to "black and white" with a blue taint) and added some white lightning

    Normally I'd agree with that, but since at least 2/3 of the icon is the axe, and part of what makes this useful is having the same axe, then freehanding that part would inhibit it from being able to match it, ruining the entire usefulness of the icon.

    Maybe 30% - recolor and lightnings are 20%?

    No, about 10%.
    Hue-changes don't count as freehand work.
