Winter's Veil Prep - Do It Now!

I don't know how many of you have checked the in-game calendar recently but Winter's Veil is right around the corner. Ok so it's more like 10 days around the corner, but it never hurts to be prepared! Now is the perfect time to start collecting materials for the Winter's Veil frenzy. Whether you plan to craft items to sell or just build up a stash of materials to mark up and flip, odds are you'll get most items pretty cheap right now. What with all the leveling pandas running around, there's bound to be plenty of deals available.

4 bolts of Runecloth + 1 bolt of Woolen Cloth = Winter Clothes

1 bolt of Woolen Cloth + 1 copper bar + 4 Rugged Leather = Winter Boots

Gingerbread Cookie = 1 small egg + 1 Holiday Spices

Egg Nog = 1 small egg + 1 Holiday Spices + 1 Holiday Spirits + 1 Ice Cold Milk

Hot Apple Cider = 1 Holiday Spices + 1 Holiday Spirits + 1 Sparkling Apple Cider

All of the materials in bold must be farmed by players. As a result, you often see newbie zones crawling with high level players, killing all the local fowl. The prices for these items also skyrocket as soon as the event goes active. By planning ahead and purchasing any items you need, you can avoid the worst of the price-gouging (or stockpile goodies and participate in the gouging!). Currently small eggs and bolts of wool cloth are going for around 1 gold apiece on my realm. These prices will shoot up to 5 - 10 - 20 gold or even higher in the first few days of Winter Veil. So I encourage you all to spend a few minutes and pick up these items while the prices are still reasonable :)

If you have any other suggestions of items savvy shoppers should grab before the start of Winter's Veil, be sure to leave a Comment!!


  1. Well thanks for the reminder Kali, I didn't make squat on this stuff last year because some guy just posted hundreds for next to nothing but I'm on a different server now that's high pop, so we shall see.

  2. I save eggs for this all year (buy low - kill a few birds). Probably silly since I'm making enough other ways. But I Love my 4-5k in egg money each year.
