Recover the Stolen Treats and free Metzen the Reindeer after defeating the Abominable Greench, who is hiding out near Growless Cave in the Hillsbrad Foothills.


A creature called "The Abominable Greench" stole our shipment of treats, <name>. Be careful though! He's vicious and a bunch of those little green gnomes do his bidding!

You're gonna need some help in facing him. Rumor has it he's holding our treats and our beloved Metzen the Reindeer at Growless Cave in the Hillsbrad Foothills! Find the treats <name> and bring them back before the celebration is ruined and all the children of Stormwind are disappointed!


<Name> - our Feast of Winter Veil will be ruined without those treats to restock! Graccu himself will miss out on sharing his delicious meat pies with all the good boys and girls this season...


You found it! You've saved Smokywood Pasture's Feast of Winter Veil!

You're a true hero to everyone here at Smokywood Pastures and to all the children, of course!



Get to the Growless Cave in the Hillsbrad Foothills to find Metzen the Reindeer and a cave full of  [Stolen Treats]. If the Abominable Greench is up, help kill it (it will take a group!):

The Greench is a boss-level yeti with the following abilities:

  • Trade engineering.png  Throw Winter Veil Tree — Hurls a Winter Veil Tree towards an enemy. Instant. Cast by Wicked Little Helpers riding the Greench. Trees are valid targets for... (10 sec cooldown)
    • Ability warrior charge.png  Abominable Crush 60 yd range — Inflicts 97500 to 102500 Physical damage and knocks enemies into the air. 1 sec cast.
  • Inv ammo snowball.png  Throw Strange Snowman 100 yd range — Hurls a Strange Snowman towards an enemy. Instant. cast by Nasty Little Helpers riding the Greench. Spawns an untergetable Strange Snowman, which will use... (10 sec cooldown)
    • Inv ammo snowball.png  Snow Crash Melee range — Inflicts 29250 to 30750 Frost damage and stuns enemies for 6 sec. 5 sec cast. Used by Strange Snowman units.
  • Ability warrior cleave.png  Cleave Melee range — Inflicts 110% of normal melee damage to an enemy and its nearest allies, affecting up to 3 targets. 
  • Inv misc organ 01.png  Shrink Heart — Deals periodic damage and slows the attack and casting speeds of nearby enemies. Movement breaks the effect. Instant. First tick hits for 3000, stacks to 10.

Let the tanks charge in first. Move away from thrown trees and snowmen, and keep moving when debuffed with Shrink Heart. Otherwise, just whittle its health down.

Once the yeti dies, the Rotten Little Helpers spook, dropping the  [Stolen Treats] by the mouth of the cave:

Rotten Little Helper yells: They've killed the Greench!
Rotten Little Helper yells: Run!

Speak with Metzen the Reindeer:

Around this reindeer's neck is a tack with the Smokeywood Pastures logo on it and a name - "Metzen".
Metzen looks at you with sad, forlorn eyes. It is almost as if the reindeer has been immobilized by some unseen force.
Gossip You're free, Metzen. That bad greench can't hurt you any more.
Metzen's eyes light up with reindeer joy.

The name of this quest is a line in the theme to How the Grinch Stole Christmas. The enemy that is to be defeated, is indeed, a parody of the name "Grinch."

"You're a mean one, Mister Grinch."
