Well, Chawa and I got a Christmas Winter Veil card from Pacheco & [Enhancement Shaman/Prot Pally].

It contained a lovely, hand-crafted gift.

A gift that had me saying, “OMFG!  We have to take a picture and put up a blog post!!”

Well, Pacheco actually wrote her own blog post on:


Seriously, check it oooout!

Greetings new adventurer and welcome! 

Congratulations on joining us now.  Recently the Blizz Gods have made several changes to the world of Azeroth with you, the new adventurer, in mind.  Descriptions of the races and classes available have been clarified.  Almost every quest will be shown on the map, to help guide your characters to the right places to find the quest objectives.  It’s a fabulous time to start playing WoW. 

However there is one thing that the ingame tutorial system won’t show you. 

I write this letter (aka: friendly post) to you with the spirit of Winter’s Veil upon me!  Whether you be a brand new adventurer to the World of Warcraft or one who has been playing the game for a few months now.

You see, I was once one of you!

And if you are like me, a fellow lover of professions, achievements and holidays,  and you have leveled your cooking up high enough, you will want to make egg nog, in order to earn the Winter’s Veil Gourmet

Allow me to give you a hint.  A hint that I didn’t know about a year ago.

Do you see the links above? If you dare click on them, they will take you to a wondrous place called wowhead, at http://www.wowhead.com/.  Wowhead can be a player’s best resource for information.  There you can look up anything that is in the game from items, to spells, to quests, to achievements, to recipes like egg nog.

I like to think of wowhead as the yellow pages.  Actually, it’s better than the yellow pages!  It’s also a receipe book!  If I need a specific item, I can look it up. 

For example, if you look up egg nog, you can see the ingredients (aka: reagents) that you’ll need to make your egg nog.  If you click on one of those ingredients, you be given a list of NPCs that sell the particular item as well as a list of mobs that drop that particular item. 

In the case of the small egg that you need for your egg nog receipe, you’ll see that small eggs are dropped by feral dragonhawks with a 100% drop rate – everytime you kill a feral dragonhawk, you’ll be able to loot a small egg off it.  What are those, you may wonder?  Well click on their name and you will not only find out but you’ll see where you can find them.  So go out, travel by zeppelin,  boat or portal, get your ingredients and make your fabulous egg nog! 

Now, you have no reason to buy small eggs off the Auction House for 5G like I did a year ago.

Now, you have no reason to buy the small eggs I list on the Auction House this year!  Unless you are lazy.  Or an impulsive shopper.  With gold to burn!  But once again, if you are a relatively new adventurer, you might not have gold to burn and you might cringe at auction house prices.  Well cringe no more!
