Last day to open Greatfather Winter's gifts

Greatfather Winter may have packed his great wintry bags and left town for another year, taking his tree and his decorations with him, but he's been good enough to leave his six presents behind for another day to help out the slowpoke recipient.

Wowhead's guide states that, while they're here today, these gifts will be gone tomorrow, so grab your last chance to get the Winter's Helper pets, the Mechanical Greench, the Snowman Kit or Jingling Bell. There's also some eggnog, cookies, wands, and roast dinners to be had, amongst other surprises. And, how could I forget, the achievements that go with them. Of course, any of these items that are limited to Winter Veil only have a day left in them, so make haste, don't tarry, open a present today! You can only enjoy the Mechanical Greench for so long.

So if you're missing just one part of the Winter Veil achievement set for your Long Strange Trip, today's the day. It's back to just being plain old January tomorrow. No wonder that Overseer looks so glum.

The Guild sells out for Christmas


It was just on Sunday that we first heard about a Guild Christmas special, and now here it is. The Guild gang have decided that the web series thing isn't really happening with the money, so they're taking the advice of commenters and selling out with six different pieces of merchandise, one for each Guild member. They're actually pretty funny, from a Codex "answer Orb" to a talking Tinkerballa doll to a Vork unbreakable bank (unfortunately, all of the items have been recalled for various reasons). There's some cool guest stars in the mix as well -- see if you can spot Heroes' James Kyson Lee (in a Delorean!) and our buddy Alex Albrecht, along with a few other familiar faces.

Good stuff, and man, The Guild crew is getting really good at making some quality video. No word whether these will show up on Xbox Live at all (they're actually out now on YouTube, so this may just be something the guys did for fun, outside of the Microsoft agreement), but you can watch them all right now above. Merry Christmas, guildies! All I really want for Christmas is a Vork unbreakable bank -- in these troubled times, it's really the safest thing to do with your hard earned money.



Like The Guild? We do, too! We've got all the episodes of season 3 posted: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, and episode 12 above. We've also chatted with all of the folks at BlizzCon, including Felicia Day, Sandeep Parikh, and Jeff Lewis and Michele Boyd. And as if that wasn't enough Guild, here's the liveblog of their panel, and the guys were nice enough to stop by our meetup as well. Stay tuned for more Guild here on WoW.com!

WoW Insider's Loot-idays: Day two

Hey hey it's our holiday buddy Great-father Winter! What's up, GFW, how's your holiday going? It's going great? Good to hear!

What's that? You've got more presents under the tree for our readers today, thanks to WoWTCGLoot.com? You've got six prizes in total, four dance grenades, and two pet biscuits, and you want to give them away to six lucky commenters on this post in the next 24 hours? You say the codes work on both US and EU realms, so all players need is to comment with a real email (so we can reach them when the contest is over) and make sure their characters are on one of those realms? Well that sounds just peachy, GFW! Thanks so much!

Boy, that Great-father, he's quite a guy. Oh, what's that, Great-father? You were hoping that we brought cookies and milk for you? Oh... errr, ummm... we actually ate them already. Sorry about that. But thanks for the giveaway, and good luck to everyone who enters!

Breakfast Topic: Presents!

Winter Veil is here. The cities are decorated, snowballs are flying, and everyone will be waking up early in a few days to see what Great Father Winter has left under the Christmas tree. We recognize the holidays as a time to share with family and friends.

Outside of services, parties, and shopping you're probably still spending a considerable amount of time with your cohorts online. I'd like to know if anyone is planning on sending gifts to their guildies and other WoW buddies. It's unnecessary but still thoughtful to recognize these folks we spend so much time with. I think it might be fun, but I'm not sure what to get.

Gifts for Winter Veil


Well, it looks as if Great-Grandfather Winter has really outdone himself this year, with loads of presents for all the good Orcs & Humans. If you haven't stopped by and seen him in Ironforge or Orgrimmar this season, better get there fast, 'cus you might just have a gift waiting under the tree!

My Paladin found a few gifts waiting at hearthside with his name on them...and some of them are pretty nifty seasonal gadgets, too.  I don't want to give anything away yet to anyone who hasn't had a chance to open theirs, but everyone run and grab your gifts, then come back here & tell us all what you got!
