Don Your Holiday Apparel—The Feast of Winter Veil Has Begun!

December 16th by Blizzard Entertainment

The fine folks of Smokywood Pastures aren’t letting a little thing like a shattered sky and ominous portents 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.

When: December 16 – January 2
Where: Initial holiday quests can be found in Orgrimmar and Ironforge, but festive decorations can be found throughout the world.

New This Year


'Tis the season for celebration! Strongholds are decked out in festive cheer, and gifts are stacked under the trees. The Feast of Winter Veil has arrived in Azeroth with fresh items added to expand growing Collections.

The Abominable Greench is upping the ante after his Metzen-nabbing shenanigans with new rewards. Storm his cave and save Metzen for a chance at merrymaking rewards:

The joyful season has inspired a variety of Bosses to share in lighthearted fun with hats, loot, and holiday decorations. However, don't be fooled. Just because they're in the spirit of things doesn't change their miserable motivations; you'll want to battle as hard as usual to ensure they don't sour the season.

  • Hackclaw's War-Band (Brackenhide Hollow)
  • Khajin the Unyielding (Halls of Infusion)
  • Assault of the Zaqali (Aberrus, the Shadowed Crucible)
  • Tyr, the Infinite Keeper (Dawn of the Infinite)
  • Council of Dreams (Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope)

  • Winter Veil Socks: Don your festive footwear to bring the Feast of Winter Veil with you wherever you go with a snowy trail effect! Machine wash cold and hang during a flurry to dry.

Festive Favorites

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 30 and up.

There are plenty of holiday hats to be found on a variety of bosses from dungeons in the Broken Isles, Northrend, and more. You just need to decide which color hat you want. Will it be green or red?

Make sure to check in on December 25 to see what presents Greatfather Winter has left for you.
