Breakfast Topic: Did you achieve your Winter Veil goals?

The Feast of Winter Veil ends today at midnight server time. So you have just a few hours left to get a Little Helper from your Friends or Bros. Before Ho Ho Hos or any of the rest of the huge list of achievements you can get during this holiday. We dressed up as gnomish helpers on Friday night to have some some last-minute PvP fun in miniature, but for the most part, we didn't see too many others getting the achievement along with us.

Usually, if you wait until the last day, anything you need cooperation for is hard to get as most people get their achievements done early on. But sometimes, it's easier if you are all fighting for the same greench. What has been your experience?
Did you complete your Winter Veil goals?
Yes. Just call me Merrymaker.1874 (26.3%)
No. Just call me Procrastinator.1188 (16.7%)
I had no goals. Just call me Scrooge.2214 (31.1%)
Whatever. Just show me the results.1836 (25.8%)

The OverAchiever: Guide to Winter Veil 2010

Winter Veil 2010 runs from Wednesday, Dec. 15 through Sunday, Jan. 2 this year. Unlike November's holiday, Pilgrim's Bounty, the Merrymaker meta is required for What A Long, Strange Trip It's Been. If you've already got a Violet Proto-Drake or just don't care about the meta, Winter Veil will also give you the opportunity to turn your mount into a reindeer, become a snowman with a unique dance animation, and get noncombat pets and snowballs. Of course, if Santa RNG thinks you've been bad, you'll just wind up with Coal.

Though not always. Keep at it! Even Santa RNG has a heart.

Past the cut, I've revised and expanded our 2009 guide for anyone looking to complete the meta (and earn the title) Merrymaker. Cataclysm has almost certainly affected how you'll do this holiday, but unfortunately, there's no hard information yet as to how. I doubt that Blizzard had the time to tinker extensively with Winter Veil in the crush of work surrounding a new expansion, but we'll see. As always, I'll be around as the holiday goes live to check and update the article. For the moment, I've included some commonsense speculation on likely changes (such as when an NPC's probably changed locations due to city/topography upheaval).
