Winter Veil 2017

Today I was anxious to log in and collect the new wild pet – the Globe Yeti. It spawns inside the huge Snow Globes in each capital city but you’ll need to be quick to capture one first – at least the first day or so. They are on a 30min respawn timer and only 1 or 2 seem to spawn each time. I recommend a macro to quickly target the pet as soon as it spawns, then whatever you’ve allocated to ‘interact with target’ found under your keybindings.

The Globe Yeti is only a 1-3 level pet so be sure to use a pet with Weakening Blow or Superbark to avoid killing it accidentally.

After missing out a couple of times, I ended up logging into a low pop server to capture mine. It makes me wonder if they’ll hotfix the number of spawns since you’ll probably end up with a lot of sad pet battlers who didn’t manage to get one in this limited timeframe. Do you plan to collect one?

There will also be a few toys to collect, as well the usual achievement on Christmas Day.

Note: each toy is faction specific so you’ll need to collect both versions on an Alliance and Horde toon.

What are you most looking forward to this Winter Veil?

  1. I was turning in a quest when I spotted one of the Globe Yeti running at a very fast past inside that globe. Fortunately I already have my usual superbark team queue up and was able to capture it without issue. As the toon that captured it was also the character that holds all of my various pet items (she’s a mage), I quickly level the yeti up.

    • Oh, nice! My main holds all of mine so I’ll be upgrading him today and probably run my Draenor circuit to level him up.

  2. I think I’ll have to camp at 3am!
    But, know this, I’ll get it.
