I'm sorry but this guide is horrible. It basically just repeats everything the achievement says. It says things like "Obtain 8 Mistletoe" or "You'll need 10 Handfuls of Snow" but then doesn't tell you where to get them. Pretty unhelpful guide.

I'm not actually sure you read the guide. For every single achievement, there is actually much more mentioned in the guide than "repeating what the achievement says". More precisely, in every case, you are told how/where to obtain the items needed for the achievement, and sometimes you are also given additional details.

The two cases you mentioned, the Mistletoe and Handfulls of Snow are not mentioned in the respective parts of the guide, because in section 4 you are told that you obtain both of those items each time you /kiss a Winter Reveler. So it seemed a bit redundant to repeat it again a short while later.

So, aside from the fact that your points are completely invalid, I don't see how you can possibly be justified in calling the guide "horrible". I find that statement laughable, considering the quality of most (or all?) other Winter Veil "guides". Your comment could have been polite and/or helpful, so that a free resource to which you have access at no cost whatsoever could be improved, but you chose to be rude and unhelpful. It baffles me that you could post with hostility.

Don't worry about coming up with something to reply to me, I'm sure you won't bother posting again.

You need to speak with Zidormi, on the western end of the west bridge of Theramore. She will send you to "Past Theramore", where you can interact with Brother Karman.

Cross Realm Zones ruined this event unless you were able to get the upper hand in the battle for Metzen. It was SO brutal for us. I had to organize TWO FORTY MAN RAIDS to take over from the 80+ Alliance sitting there ganking people. After calling out targets, popping Bloodlust, and zerging them, we finally won just to get our daily done. Before we knew it, there were hundreds more Alliance that came back to overwhelm us. This struggle existed EVERY SINGLE DAY. I couldn't imagine what would happen if you just COULDN'T get control of that area. They need to figure out this CRZ garbage or instance holiday events.

Good guide, easy to find out what's changed this year. (Not much, which is fine. We did just get a new expac, a patch, and the promise of more content early in the new year.)

I especially liked the info on the Battle Pets, but is there a way you can highlight it a bit more? It was mildly more difficult to find than I'd expected, especially since Battle Pets (as a feature) are new this year and so the information would be in high demand.

In section 4.1.3, you've forgotten the "h" in Cathedral several times.

Other than those two minor notes, this guide is yet another example of why I read IV.

Great guide. Guest_No impressed needs to learn to read ALL of an article before posting such nonsense. I do want to mention the "There Both Footballs" achievement. I think this is this years special gift and a pretty cool one too. I'm level 80 and I'm not sure about some achievements getting done, but this guide was a great help. If I do not have "Gaudy Winter Veil Sweater", where do I get one? That was last years gift, right? I also need the BB gun, but I'm going back to your guide now to see if I just missed that.

Looks like I'm reading this a bit late :P I've fixed the typos in Cathedral (many thanks for reporting them!), but I'm not really sure what you mean about the Battle Pets.

Thank you :) I voluntarily excluded the They're Both Footballs? achievement, because 1) I did not want to give spoilers and 2) it is a Feat of Strength and not an actual Winter Veil achievement.

Misprint in the guide for Horde players doing Great Father Winter is Here!.  The pick up and turn in are not in Ironforge as listed, but rather in Org.

Hi!  Thanks for another great guide smile.png

 

This year's gaily wrapped present should also have a chance of containing a new pet, the Rotten Little Helper, which comes in a Rotten Helper Box.

 

If you're looking for the pets on the auction house, you can find each of them in two forms, as follows:

 

Rotten Helper Box => Rotten Little Helper

Jingling Bell => Winter Reindeer

Green Helper Box => Father Winter's Helper

Red Helper Box => Winter's Little Helper

Tiny Snowman Kit => Tiny Snowman

 

NB. Lump of Coal is Bind on Pickup, but the resulting pet, Lumpy, can be traded.

Wish you had a registered account so I could "like" the post! I don't mention the Christmas presents so that it doesn't spoil things for people who do not wish to know in advance.

I believe y'all forgot an achievement. Perhaps it was added this year; frankly I haven't paid attention but I did notice I do not personally have it:

My friend has reported that Galakras in Flex gave them a Green Winter Hat. Strange but awesome!

 

Edit: Nazgrim just dropped the Red Winter Hat for my group! (specific to players)

Just wanted to point out that I got the Caroling achievement yesterday, so you can in fact complete that achievement before the 25th of December
