Getting ready for Winter Veil

After Valentines, This is my favorite in-game holiday. However, I got caught out last year doing this on my mage, trying to open up the Ogri'la faction, along with a few other hundred people, at the same time. Think The Turkinator from the Pilgrim's Bounty festival. Luckily this year I was a bit more organized and dragged a friend around to do some "Winter Veil" preparations.

So whats to prepare for?

For the people on the quest to What a long, Strange Trip It's Been, one of the achievements you need for the Winter
Veil meta is this.


Now this quest is found in Blades Edge Mountains, Outland, but before you can do it you must unlock a annoyingly long
quest chain. So for those who never did it while leveling, this is a quick rundown of what you need to do, to be ready when the festive season starts.

The chain will start at Mog'dorg the Wizened, Location 55, 44, Blades Edge Mountains. he is up the top of a tower and
if he does not speak to you, chat to his assistant at the foot of the tower first, before heading back up.

He will give you 3 quests to complete

Even Gronn Have Standards, Location 20, 17, Terokkar Forest, just behind Shatt.
Grulloc Has Two Skulls, Location 60,47, Blades Edge Mountains
Maggoc's Treasure Chest, Found patrolling the outside of Deaths Door in Blades Edge Mountains, Approx. 68, 64 & 58,64

Hand those into him and he will send off to these

Grim(oire) Business, Location 77,30, Blades Edge Mountains. (Note: Pre-3.1 you used to need 5 people to summon him.
this is no longer the case, he will just show up for you)
Into the Soulgrinder, Location 59, 24 Blades Edge Mountains

Grats! you are now King/Queen of the ogres!

he will now send you to Ogri'La so grab this quest

Ogre Heaven, Chu'a'lor can be found at 28, 57, Who will give you the next few quests
The Crystals, Dropped by Apexis Flayers and Shard-Hide boars
An Apexis Relic. I suggest notepaper. the device is found at 32, 65 and requires a shard to operate. Ever played Simon
Our Boy Wants To Be A Skyguard Ranger, machine is found at 29, 81. To avoid being taken out by fel cannons, use your land mount.
The Skyguard Outpost, Keller found at 27, 52 Blades Edge Mountains.

Bombing Run, Hotkey the smiley (happy?) bombs and never stop moving, as those cannons will take you out. the ammo is
marked with hunter-mark like arrows.

After you hand in this quest the daily will open up

Bomb Them Again! Sound familiar?

Remember where this quest is, cause you're going to be coming back here when Winter Veil starts. And
now you get to laugh at all the people farming Blades Edge Mountains during the silly season, trying to unlock the chain when you've been smart enough to do it early!

Anything else to prepare for?

If you get bored, Head to Westfall to kill Fleshrippers, Teldrassil to kill Strigid Owls or Eversong Woods to kill
Crazed Dragonhawk. Why? They all drop Small Egg, and you will need 5 of these for this quest, Treats for Greatfather Winter, and the AH prices are guaranteed to skyrocket as we creep closer to the holiday.

Happy Questing!
