It’s that time of year when Azeroth is decorated with lights, trees, and presents at every turn. With the return of The Feast of Winter Veil in WoW: Dragonflight, WoW Classic, Season of Discovery, and Hardcore, you can celebrate on all versions. In this guide, I’ll cover how to get Stolen Presents during the 2023 Feast of Winter Veil event.

How to Obtain Stolen Presents During the 2023 Winter Veil Event

Stolen Presents are a reward for completing “You’re a Mean One…” which is a neutral daily. You can pick up this quest from The Strange Snowman located in the Hillsbrad Foothills at the coordinates 42.4, 41.0. Or you can read the quest in Ironforge by talking to Wulmort Jinglepocket, since he’s your turn-in at the end.

To complete it, you’ll recover Stolen Treats from the Abominable Greench and free Metzen the Reindeer in the Growless Cave nearby. Afterwards, return the Stolen Treats to Wulmort Jinglepocket in Ironforge. He’ll reward you with the Stolen Present. From here, you can redo this quest daily as long as the Winter Veil is active.

And if you want even more gifts, you can continue the quest series by doing “A Smokywood Pastures’ Thank You!” However, do note these reward you with a different item called Smokywood Pastures Special Gift.

Blue Stolen Presents vs. Green Stolen Gifts

It’s important to note that you can receive two different awards from the “You’re a Mean One…” quest. Some players have been confused since they received a green item with a different name. To get the higher-level blue Stolen Presents, you actually need to be max level. If you’re below level 60 in Dragonflight you’ll get a Stolen Gift instead.

So, what’s the difference between the two? The Stolen Presents have a chance to drop rare pets and toys, such as Wild Holly which is a seasonal toy. It’s green counterpart doesn’t give nearly as good rewards. So, if you’re close to reaching max level on your toon, I recommend waiting until you ding to do this quest.

Can You Get Stolen Presents in WoW Classic SoD? Answered

With the release of Season of Discovery, we’ve been experiencing Vanilla WoW in a whole new way with Runes. However, that doesn’t mean familiar events are out of the question. You can participate in the 2023 Winter Veil in SoD, but not all quests are available since Phase 1 caps us at Level 25. As such, you can’t do the daily quest “You’re a Mean One…” since it’s a Level 30 quest.
