Theory...the winter pets won't be "excluded" from casting the rest of the year, but will be somehow different during the holiday.The snowman, for example has interesting wording: "Right Click to build or destroy a tiny snowman. The snowman is larger and lasts longer during Winter Veil."And the reindeer: "Right Click to summon and dismiss your reindeer. The Winter Reindeer only dresses up for Winter Veil." Says it only "dresses up" for Winter Veil. Maybe it'll just be more festive during those 2 weeks?

And the helper says they are busy the rest of the year...for what that is worth. It sounds to me like you get the benefit of no reagent but you can only use it during the holiday. Which I guess is fine but it kind of defeats the purpose. It could just be bad tool-tip writing. Which wouldn't be the first time.

Yeah, the wording is a bit vague. Not being able to summon those pets during the rest of the year, especially since I have a snowball maker, would be (wait for it...)(...still waiting?)...A SLAP IN THE FACE!

Wait. You can only slap yourself in the face during winter veil!

Yeah, I saw the Winter Helper, too. Could just mean he'll be "srs bsns" during the non-holiday, and wearing sunglasses and lounging during the holiday.I still stand by my theory, even if that's all it is.

Could be the reindeer only wears his red Winter Veil nose and bells during the holiday ... so outside the holiday, he'll look like ... a moose!

My what BIG antlers you have!

That's not a nice change, in my opinion. Almost all of my characters carry snowballs, just on the off chance that I might want to summon one of the winter pets whenever I feel like it, just to amuse myself or my kids.Not a nice change at all.

I may be asking this prematurely, but combined with the "no silly" item changes, and the inability to summon the Gnome pets outside of Winter Veil, and the snowman being tiny and now temporary, and the reindeer losing his garb outside of the holiday, is anyone else picking up a "clean up the silly" vibe?We were told excluded items might be included later, but there's no guarantee they are. I guess if we start seeing other "silly" items getting nerfs, we will know.
