Winter Veil Kissing AchievementsDecember 17, 2008
Most of the Achievements have been fairly easy for me to complete thus far. Below I have included some tips to help get your “Merrymaker” title and Achievement a little simpler. Today I am just covering the Achievements you can get from /kiss rewards.
Bros. Before Ho Ho Ho’s
The first thing you need before you set out to find all the Brothers spread about Azeroth is to get 9 Mistletoe. To get these, you go to an Inn and /kiss the Winter Revelers standing conviently under some mistletoe. It appears that this year you can kiss either the boy or the girl this year. (I seem to recall that in years past you could only kiss the opposite sex.) It also seems to only work with non-Northrend Revelers. I would also double check that you have one free bag space before your /kiss. After kissing them they will give you something; either Mistletoe (5), Fresh Holly (5), or a Handful of Snowflakes (5). You will also get a one hour debuff until you can kiss again (my guess is so your lips don’t get chapped). This debuff works similarly to Resurection Sickness, in that it does not continue to wear off when you are logged off. The Mistletoe is the one for this quest, but don’t toss the other two if you get them as they are for other achievements.
Finding the Brothers isn’t that hard if you know where to look. Wowhead is where I went, and found an amazing comment that gives the fastest route to get them all. Follow this link here and scroll down a few comments to the one written by Aristodamos. It gives you a very straight forward route to follow. It helped me out a ton to get this done with out several wowhead searches to find NPCs I’ve never heard of.
I hope you saved that Fresh Holly from kissing those boys and girls! If not, you can get some Preserved Holly two different ways. You can do the Metzen quest, or you can do “The Hero of the Day“, which will reward you with some. The difference between the two Hollies is that Preserved will last indefinetly and Fresh will disappear after having it for 7 days.
This achievement does require you to have a flying mount. You must fly to Ogri’la in Blade’s Edge Mountains in Outland and do the daily “Bomb them again”. You only need to be on your Reindeered mount when turning in the quest. So for all you Epic Flight Form druids out there, birdy bomb them away. When you get back to the quest giver, hop on a mount and use the holly to change to a festive reindeer, then hand in the quest.
Let It Snow
This one will require your Handful of Snowflakes from earlier. You will actually need two stacks of these, for a total of ten. You will need to snowflake 10 specific Race/Class types to earn this achievement.
- Orc Death Knight
- Tauren Shaman
- Undead Rogue
- Gnome Mage
- Blood Elf Warlock
- Human Warrior
- Night Elf Druid
- Troll Hunter
- Dwarf Paladin
- Draenei Priest
For your own faction you can always “/who night elf druid” (for example) to find your nearest one. I have even heard of some people being whispered and given gold for meeting someone to be snowflaked. For the opposite faction, I found the easiest thing to do was stand in front of the Horde section in Dalaran, waiting for someone to come by. It took me maybe 10 minutes tops, and I think they loved it because I was what they were looking for, too. I got much snowflakes while standing there.
