Winterveil Achievement Guide

The holiday season isn’t that far away. ’tis the season to achievement farm! The following quests are requirements for the Merrymaker achievement, which in itself is a requirement for the What A Long, Strange Trip It’s Been achievement, which rewards you with a violet proto-drake!

The Winterveil events according to the in-game calendar will go live on December 15th and end on January 2nd. AFAIK. The presents will become available on the 25th (Christmas :P) and will last until the end of Winterveil.

I just pulled these off of the in-game achievement list. If they patch anything as they did with the Halloween event, I’ll update the list.

On Metzen! Complete the Metzen the Reindeer quest. He is located at 68,34 in Searing Gorge; Near-ish to the the Loch Modan entrance.
Scrooge Snowball King Magni Bronzebeard.
He Knows If You’ve Been Naughty Open one of the presents underneath the Winter Veil tree.
With a Little Helper from My Friends Earn 50 honorable kills as a Little Helper from the Winter Wondervolt machine (located in front of IF).
‘Tis the Season During the Feast of Winter Veil, wear 3 pieces of winter clothing and eat Graccu’s Mince Meat Fruitcake

    • Red Hat & Green Hat: End bosses in instances have a high (was it 100%, I don’t remember) chance of dropping either hat. Also seems to be a world drop.
    • Boots: Leatherworking. I think the pattern is from one of the Winterveil vendors.
Simply Abominable Complete the quest to retrieve the stolen Smokywood Pastures’ stolen treats and receive a Smokywood Pastures’ Thank You. This one is kind of a pain in the ass because it’s from the Greench quest. He patrols the Alterac Mountains, good luck tagging him :/
Bros. Before Ho Ho Ho’s Use the Mistletoe on the following NPCs:

    • Brother Crowley: Stormwind Cathedral Catacombs. Right hand wing, go down the spiral stairs, first door after the first-aid people.
    • Brother Anton: Nijel’s Point Desolace, in the inn. He’s the NPC you get the SM quest from.
Crashin’ & Thrashin’ Gain 25 crashes with your Crashin’ Thrashin’ Racer during the Feast of Winter Veil. New item?

The Winter Veil Gourmet Make the following food items:

A Frosty Shake During the Feast of Winter Veil, use your Winter Veil Disguise kit to become a snowman and then dance with another snowman in Dalaran.

Opportunistic bastards can probably start farming small eggs for the sake of ripping off lazy people.
