Winter Veil 2015!

Winter Veil has new things in 2015! :D

Wowhead has a great guide, but here's the new stuff for those familiar with the holiday:

There are four new daily quests in the garrison, which give Merry Supplies. These can be turned in for:
- Garrison decorations, similar to the Hallow's End decorations earlier this year. These cost 5 Merry Supplies each.
- Savage Gift, which also costs 5 Merry Supplies each. These can contain garrison resources or oil (300 each), Apexis crystals (1000), or a Medallion of the Legion, Frozen Arms of a Hero (increases follower weapon and armor ilvl by 50), Elixir of the Rapid Mind (increases experience by 300% for 15 minutes and works up through level 99). They also have a very small chance to contain Minion of Grumpus, a yeti mount!
- Crashin' Thrashin' Killdozer Controller, which also costs 5 Merry Supplies and goes toward the Iron Armada achievement.

There is also a new pet that can be looted in the same area where the dailies take place. Loot piles of snow for a chance at various types of snowballs and a chance at a Grumpling, a yeti pet that's new to 2015!

For those who did the dailies yesterday, the "What Horrible Presents!" quest has been hotfixed and shouldn't be, well, horrible anymore.

The Stolen Present from "You're a Mean One..." (the quest to loot the stolen present and free Metzen from the Abominable Greench) can drop:
- Scroll of Storytelling (an item from last year which was later changed to a toy)
- Miniature Winter Veil Tree, an agility dagger (which is 670 ilvl this year)
- Cushions that were gifts last year
- Various other toys and pets (Lumpy, Rotten Little Helper, etc.)

The Greench quest is available to anyone 80+. The Greench himself is level 103, but you can hover a ways away and be safe and drop in and complete the quest after he's dead.

Completing that quest rewards a once-a-year quest, A Smokywood Pastures Thank You, which gives a gift which can contain:
- Various patterns that have been there in previous years (such as the Snowmaster 9000 schematic)
- Winter's Grasp (a weapon enchant transmog item which is new to 2015). Note that this cannot be used on ranged weapons, but it can be used on anything else, and should become account-wide in Legion.
- Flames of Ragnaros (another weapon enchant transmog, which was previously only available from the 10th Anniversary Molten Core raid)
Hey everyone! It's Tuesday! :D

New member: me!

Your Character
*Character name: (baby made to have community see if you like me and vice versa..) -- Editrx
*Class: hunter/beastmaster

*Race: Nelf

What professions are you doing / do you plan to do with this character?: skinning, leather working

Picture of your character: She's pretty much a work in progress -- she's only 10. I can upload a pic of her tomorrow if I can get a good jpg while I'm at work.

*Is this character your main character in WoW?: my lvl 100 main(s) are on Thrall still, waiting to see if I should move them -- they are, in order of favorite/most useful play: a resto/kitty Nelf (Getåfix), hunter Nelf (Toxophilix) (is there a theme here?), a mage human (Lottatrix), and my best-geared 100 who is a lock named Editrix, a gnome engineer -- all named in honor of the Asterix & Obelix comics. I also have 5 more 90s, who I haven't had time to level, who were mostly done for their professions but who I do like playing and could level and gear if they are needed for the guild. The hunter was my main raider through Cata and start of Pandaria; the druid before that. And before that, my mage was my only main and was therefore my raider from late Vanilla through BC and onwards.

You!
Name: Nancy C. Hanger

Age: 54

Location: Orford, NH (translation: so far north I'm against Vermont, and yes, it gets to be -40F here in the winter)

Picture of you: nancy
(This is me, under orders of a good friend, standing under a sign at a county fair that read: LOST CHILDREN. Hence the completely goofy laugh.)

Contact (AIM, E-mail, etc?): FB = Nancy C. Hanger, email (best) = nancy@starcatbooks.com

*Tell us a little about yourself: I've been in publishing for over 30 years and decided to buy a small indie bookstore in VT just two years ago and revive it. It's an ongoing process. :) It's my baby, along with 4 cats and one husband.

*How long have you been playing World of Warcraft?: Since the end of Vanilla, 4 weeks before BC hit.

*What other characters do you have, and play (or have played) on a regular basis?: See above.

*How did you learn about DotA (website, real life friend, online friend, wow_ladies livejournal community, etc…)? Through LJ's wow-ladies community when I posted that I needed a new home after playing alone through Pandaria and ended up so lonely and dispirited during this xpac that I haven't been playing much at all, this after raiding (heroic, including the old heroic 25-man) through BC up to end of Cata. Eliina recommended the community to me as a possible good fit. So I made this baby Nelf to see how we all like each other in the coming weeks, before I move over a 100 or two. I don't have to be raiding to be happy: my 100's aren't geared for it, obviously, having been alone this xpac, but having a community again will make a huge difference to me.

Tuesday!
