The annual Christmas/New Year celebration is returning to World of Warcraft. Winter Veil 2019 starts today, December 16th, and will run through January 2nd with the festive activities happening in Orgrimmar and Ironforge.
The fine folks of Smokywood Pastures aren’t letting a little thing like war between the Horde and the Alliance get in the way of spreading holiday cheer—or gaining a bit of profit. Winter Veil has begun in Azeroth, and with it come all the fripperies, fineries, and delectable comestibles of the holiday.
What’s new this year?
We all know that the holiday spirit is nice and all, but the real question is what goodies are we getting this year?
- A new sleigh ride is making its circles around Ironforge and Orgrimmar. Snap a S.E.L.F.I.E. to preserve the moment!
- Stop by the Smokeywoods Pastures cart in Ironforge or Orgrimmar and click on Greatfeather Pepe to obtain A Tiny Winter Hat. When you summon Pepe to join you on your adventures, he may just show up in the perfect Winter Veil outfit complete with a tiny beard.
Let your spirit be light by stepping into one of the Giant Snow Globes* found outside of the Ironforge Bank, in Orgrimmar overlooking the Valley of Wisdom, or in the Broken Isles in Dalaran. It’s a truly transformative experience letting your inner Greatfather Winter helper out. A little /dance will spread the joy to those around you.**
The Abominable Greench is (still) a mean one, but we’re sure that once you’ve filled up on the fine foods and beverages from Smokywood Pastures, you’re bound to put a stop to his reign of terror in the Hillsbrad Foothills. The quest You’re a Mean One… is now available to players level 60 and up.
Make sure to check in on December 25 to see what presents Greatfather Winter has left for you.
