Feast of Winter Veil icon.png

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.


Mistletoe is acquired by simply typing /kiss while targeting a Winter Reveler located in most inns during the Feast of Winter Veil. Winter Revelers will randomly give you a stack of five of Mistletoe, [Fresh Holly] or a [Handful of five Snowflakes] after typing /kiss. Only the Winter Revelers in the inns participate.

You will also receive a debuff preventing you from getting another of these gifts for one hour. This hour is real-time, so you can switch characters and come back an hour later.


  • Using mistletoe on a target gives your target +20 Versatility for 30 minutes.
  • You cannot use mistletoe on yourself.
  • You can use mistletoe on your pets.
  • Using mistletoe on a player or NPC causes them to do a /cheer emote.
  • Mistletoe is soulbound and cannot be traded, but does not expire.


  • Two achievements, one per faction, require the use of mistletoe.
  • Alliance  [Holiday Bromance] uses nine. The most difficult target is in a low thirties area.
  • Horde  [Holiday Bromance] uses only three, but two of the targets are on Northrend.
  • These can only be done during Winter Veil, you do not get credit for using mistletoe on the achievement targets out of season.
