Tis the Season….

The opening kid is amazing, wish I had pipes like that when I was a kid

It’s that time of year again folks, Winter’s Veil is right around the corner occupying Azeroth Thursday, December 15th through Monday, January 2ndoh what fun! Meanwhile in the real world Christmas is fast approaching and I find myself too busy to be cheerful! Oh noes! Crunch time is the main reason I’ve been in low power mode for the past week or two.

I believe I’ve stated this before but just in case I’ll say it again, I’m not one for long drawn out holiday gold making tactics. Luckily Winter’s Veil doesn’t have much in the way of gold making (come to think of it, do any of them?) so I don’t really feel all that guilty. Mages, Tailors, Leatherworkers, and Cooks though are in for a treat with a nice boost to revenue if they apply themselves (damn you select few who probably have all 3 of these on your mage!)

I had originally written a whole spiel about what items are created by which profession but LiveWriter ate it so I gave up. You can check out WoW Insider’s Guide to Winter Veil to see what’s up and will be popular. Many people advocate stocking up on small eggs throughout the year to sell during this time, and I still have a small stash of them from stocking up last year, so I’ll see how that turns out. Besides that most of the gold making opportunities will be making the clothes for the achievement hungry players.

One interesting tidbit is that apparently the Winter’s Veil pets no longer require snowballs, so it might be a good idea to stock up on them cheap and hold them for when pet battles come in.

I apologise for the length between posts lately, it’s crunch time for students as many of you probably know and it doesn’t leave a whole lot of time for writing. I have 3 weeks off after today so expect to see lots of nice juicy posts to liven up your holidays.
