The subject of this article or section is part of Feast of Winter Veil, a seasonal event that lasts several weeks. Once the event has run its course, this will no longer be available until next year, but there are no guarantees.

  • Green Helper Box
  • Use: Teaches you how to summon this companion.

Father Winter's Helper

Green Helper Box summons and dismisses Father Winter's Helper, a small gnome companion dressed in festive green garb who follows you around, meaning it is a non-combat pet and will not aid you in battle.


The Green Helper Box is one of the four possible pet items you can receive as gifts under the big tree in Ironforge and Orgrimmar during the Feast of Winter Veil seasonal event.

Even if you did not obtain this pet in a present, they can often be found in the Auction House throughout the year at highly inflated prices.

There is also a red variant of this pet summoned from a  [Red Helper Box].

Pet Journal

These off-season allies work tirelessly to prepare for the Feast of Winter Veil, and would appreciate not being disturbed the rest of the year.


  • Whoah! Where's the workshop?! Summon me up a little later in the year, all right?
  • We'll need twenty thousand more cog wheels, and another... hey! You can't just summon me away like that!
  • So, did you hear about Helper 432-A? I heard that... what the-? HEY! We Helpers have WORK to do, you know!
  • What the-?! Why did you-?! I have TOYS to make!
  • It's not Winter Veil, yet, you know. I have WORK to do!
  • What the-? AGAIN?! Look, <class>. As much as I'd like to watch you punch monsters or mouthbreathe at the auction house or WHATEVER it is you do all year, I've got WORK to do.
  • Does it LOOK like the Feast of Winter Veil to you? Colored lights, decorations? No? Well, you know who has to MAKE all that stuff, right?!
  • Look, <class>. Here's the thing. Toys and lights and bundles of holiday herbs don't make THEMSELVES, you know. So ENOUGH with the Helper summoning, PLEASE.

Mounted on a reindeer.

  • Mounting while accompanied by Father Winter's Helper will cause the Helper to mount up on his own miniature reindeer. He will, however, despawn if one uses a flying mount to leave the ground.
