Feast of Winter Veil
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.

Snowballs are a Feast of Winter Veil event item, made to remind everyone it is winter!


During the Feast of Winter Veil, snowballs can be purchased for 10c in stacks of five from:

A few snowballs are given as quest rewards for Feast of Winter Veil quests and can be looted from snow mounds on the ground in the Alterac Mountains area of Hillsbrad Foothills and across Dun Morogh.

During the Midsummer Fire Festival, snowballs can be obtained from the Inv misc dust 03 [Pocket Full of Snow].

During the rest of the year, snowballs can be made by an engineer using a Spell frost windwalkon [Snowmaster 9000] at a rate of one snowball per day.

Inv bearmountblizzard [Snowstorm] can drop a Snow Patch which contains 1-3x Snowballs.


Snowballs can be thrown at other players. There is a slight impact animation. In the past they used to do actual knockback, which could have major secondary effects (knocking a character off a high location).

Requires a snowball to use:

Snowballs were also required to use the following, until patch 4.3.0:

Each activation consumed a single snowball.


  • During the event, these are one of the cheapest vended items in the game; however they are required in order to activate certain items and storage is always scarce; so after the event they command a large premium in the auction house.
  • Interestingly enough, the snowball stun can activate a Warrior's Ability hunter harass [Second Wind]-talent.[citation needed]
