  • Mistletoe Mistletoe now requires the Feast of Winter Veil and is cleared from players’ bags after the holiday ends.
    • Developers’ note: We like fun holiday buffs adding flavor to the game and we don’t want to prevent them from being used in raids and dungeons.

      Two Sides to Every Tale is a new achievement that rewards two interesting mounts in Patch 8.1.5. Alliance players will unlock a Wolf mount, whereas the Horde can get a Horse mount. You can earn them by completing the Tides of Vengeance War Campaign and the A Nation United / Zandalar Forever! achievements on both factions.
