WoW's Christmas Event Starts Soon And Involves Giant Snow Globes

World of Yulecraft.


Starting tomorrow, Azeroth is getting a makeover for the holidays. World of Warcraft's Christmas event begins soon, and it'll bring a whole bunch of festive decorations and items to discover.

The highlight of the update is the Feast of Winter Veil, which brings decorations across Azeroth but centers on the major cities. Giant snow globes will appear in Ironforge, Ogrimmar, and Dalaran. It'll run from December 16-January 3.

In addition, if you're hanging out in Azeroth on New Year's Eve and Day, you can check out some in-game fireworks. According to Blizzard, from December 31-January 1, the capitals of every race will have firework shows every hour for the whole night.

Finally, as in past years, the Abominable Greench will return to WoW as part of the Feast of Winter Veil, with rewards to earn if you defeat him. There's also a Finely Tailored Holiday Hat that can be found in Legion dungeons and raids.

The holiday events are just a couple of parts of a bigger December update; you can read all of the additions and events happening this month over at the Blizzard blog. In other news, the Battle for Azeroth expansion is in the works right now, and we recently sat down with Blizzard to talk about what's in store.
