The quest, You're a Mean One..., is a daily quest that can be completed once per day during the Feast of Winter Veil. Upon completion, players are awarded with a Stolen Present which has a chance of dropping this companion pet.

This companion is very vocal about being summoned outside of the Winter Veil holiday, and will not remain by the player's side during the off season.

During the Feast of Winter Veil, this companion will summon and ride their very own miniature reindeer when players mount up on a ground mount.

late to the party here but this dude is hilarious. I had no idea he disappears and refuses to stay during non-winter veil time. And during winter veil every time i went to my alt who had him up as i logged on he farted and i couldn't figure it out for the longest time what was making that noise, DUH wish there were more silly pets like this

A miraculous pet for Wailing Caverns. Booby-Trapped Presents and Greench's Gift deal 1059 damage *each* when used against Deviate Smallclaws, what means he can dispatch a couple of them before they can even think about their dirty Primal Cry! Against other trash pets, a combination of both is such effective aswell – even the flappers can't act first as the BTP take their racial bonus away.


After all, 1412+ damage can be very handy for any non-elemental occasion.

I love this little guy! I have 3 rare 25s and use them as my go-to leveller regardless of what I am fighting. He can decimate beasts in a heartbeat!

P/P Breed with 333 power makes this a very strong hitter. Strongest Minefield ability(booby trapped presents). Greench's Gift is a game changer, hits very hard. Call Blizzard is available to make best use of Ice Lance, but with 333 power the Club will hit quite hard for a 100% hit ability. Ice Tomb can also be truly powerful. With the 333 power this little guy can really bring the hurt, but it might be slightly delicate with just below 1400 health and no defenseive moves. Still solid pet.

Got one really early, and sold off my second thinking they'd drop better, now wish I had kept it.  Love getting the hang of swapping him in an out of a battle to get the most out of his beast slaughtering.  His damage reduction against critter attacks should make him very useful in wild pet battles, it's a shame his most frequent attacks (slot 1) will have to take a hit against critters or beasts, but those presents pack a punch; swap him into Corageous Yon daily to carry a lowbie.

You can still battle stone them Ranok... I just did it. You have to summon it and use the battle stone on it before it runs off is all. Just gotta be quick.

Battle Info tab lists Breed as P/P.  I own 2 and one is a P/P and one is a B/B.  Is my addon being wonky or are there more breeds possible for this pet?

FINALLY got one. With only three toons high enough for the quest I was figuring there was no way ... but there WAS! Yes, it was a dozen days with each, but it was worth it. It hits hard and can take a beating. With the holiday almost over, you must keep trying. As I will - hoping for a second Lumpy.

Go Team!

I saw where somebody said they had gotten 6 of these pets I looked at there posts and didn' see any they must have sold all of them. All I I can say is they better go play the lottery with that kind of luck they might be super rich.

Extremely unlucky so far.  Have done the daily on 10 toons for 11 days and still nothing. Thought with a 1 in 65 chance of receiving this pet as a reward I would have had at least a chance of 2 before the holiday ends.  Will be happy to get him at least once.

Reminder: Mages can help folks via Portal: Ancient Dalaran to quickly get to the target area of the Greench Daily. Just make sure you are mounted on a flying mount before going through the portal.

Feels like I'm never going to get this pet. I have been doing the quest daily on 7 toons and still no luck! I prefer not to buy off AH but I may need to keep my eye open :(

BEWARE what you buy on the AH. Don't pay extra for a P/P breed or buy two thinking you'll have one of each breed. All the pets start out as a B/B breed according to the add-ons, but when you use a stone to make it rare, or when you level the pet to 10, it turns to P/P breed. According to a post by Synapto, "the reason for this is stated by the library author: at low levels (especially Level 1), it is harder to tell some breeds' stat weighting apart from each other."

Bought one off the AH today and my BreedID addon was saying he was only available in B/B. As soon as I leveled him he was showing up as P/P, so it may be a bug with BreedID... With 333 power at level 25 he's the most powerful of the Winter Veil pets by far!

I dont normally like even reading negative comments, but I have to agree. This pet was suposed to be found under the tree, so I have been slacking in the daily. I dont think this is possible, since I opened the gift on 39 different toons today and not one rotten helper.

Fed up with long hours, low pay, and entitled adventurers whining about sub-standard Winter Veil gifts, these nasty little creatures fled their magical workshops to join up with the Abominable Greench.
