Feast of Winter Veil 2020

The halls have been decked, and garlands abound. The excitement is building all around. Great Father Winter will bring gifts that delight! We’ll feast and be merry and have snowball fights!

The Feast of Winter Veil has begun and will run through 6 AM on January 2nd. WoWHead has a full overview of the event which can be found here.

The following information is for the Iron Man Challenge. For information on the challenge variants please see below.

New for 2020
One of the biggest changes challengers will need to be mindful of is that due to the level squish previous level requirements for some holiday quests may now be different.

A Tiny Winter Hat is now available for Pepe fans and some Shadowlands bosses will have festive appearances.

Quests & Daily Quests
There are several quests and daily quests available during this event that you are allowed to complete. While you are allowed to complete them here are a few things to make note of:
– The quests Treats for Great-father Winter(H) and Treats for Greatfather Winter(A) involve cooking. You are NOT ALLOWED to learn cooking for this quest, however, you can buy the gingerbread cookies needed off the Auction House if any have been listed. The milk can be bought from vendors.
– The quests You’re a Mean One…(H) and You’re a Mean One…(A) involve retrieving Stolen Treats from The Abominable Greench. Once he has been slain the stolen goods spawn at the entrance of his cave. You do NOT need to kill the Greench in order to be able to snag the gifts when they spawn in. It is recommended that challengers keep a safe distance from this boss as there is a good chance he’ll one-shot your challenger.

For challengers that have upgraded their garrisons to level 3, an additional 4 holiday daily quests may become available. These can be picked up in your garrisons from either Almie(A) or Pizzle(H).
– The quest Grumpus involves killing him and you must tag him to get credit. This quest may be too dangerous to bother with. When in doubt, scout it out.
