Where do i get the Winter Hat's this year, none in trade wants to answer me, only trolls there =(
Got my hat from H Nexus a couple hours ago. Friend got his in H OK.
So its that time of year again!
The winter viel has started, and its the last world event i need to do before i get my proto drake! so im frantically trying to get it done.
Last night i was doing HC SFK. the hat drops from the last boss however i did not win the roll.
I then remembered you can get it off of the older bosses... so that got me thinking,
But can anyone confirm for me, that if i try to go do these bosses the hat will drop for me, even though im level 85?
Thanks in advance.
Yes you can go and farm regular nexus for your hat. Grab a 2-3 man group and go blow through to Telestra, exit reset. Rinse repeat.
The hat drops pretty much everywhere, now. I got one from the first boss in HoO normal.
ahh cool, thanks for the info guys.
ill see if i can get a few friends to go to Nexus with me tonight!
I just ran Nexus Normal. Hat didn't drop.
Blizzard's blue post is misleading. You need to do Heroics in Northrend to get the hat.Winter Veil Bosses
The denizens of the dungeons of Northrend are also getting into the holiday spirit, and some dungeon bosses even wear festive Winter Hats just like Greatfather Winter's. Defeat a Winter Veil boss, and the boss' hat is yours!
Winter Veil bosses of Northrend:
* Grand Magus Telestra (The Nexus) - Red Winter Hat
* Jedoga Shadowseeker (Ahn'Kahet: The Old Kingdom) - Red Winter Hat
* Mage-Lord Urom (The Oculus) - Green Winter Hat
Cataclysm Winter Veil bosses
* Deadmines (Heroic) - Admiral Ripsnarl
* The Stone Core (Normal + Heroic) - High Priestess Azil
* Blackrock Caverns (Normal + Heroic) - Corla, Herald of Twilight
* Shadowfang Keep (Heroic) - Lord Godfrey
* Grim Batol (Normal + Heroic) - Drahga Shadowburner
(Heroic) The Nexus
(Heroic) The Oculus
I've run both of those dungeons on normal (for other reasons not really for the hat) and it never dropped. Heard the same news from many other players on my server. I'm assuming the same is true for "Ahn'Kahet: The Old Kingdom". Personally, I wish they would have allowed you to queue for the event like they've done for all the other ones recently. I don't know why they decided not to do that for Winter Veil.
