World of Warcraft: Winter Veil gold making strategies

Each year, there are some things which we can use during events to make some extra gold.  Here's a few that I have used and do use during the Winter Veil event.

Hopefully, you read my Pre-Winter Veil gold tip, to make some gold, before the event started.  This is a continuation of that post, but more as what to do now, that the event as started, to make gold.

You can /kiss a Winter Reveler found at any inn, to receive either Mistletoe or Fresh Holly.  Mistletoe is soulbound, but can be used throughout the year, it gives a spirit buff.  Fresh Holly, is not soulbound, and can be sold on the AH.

Preserved Holly,  works the same as Fresh Holly, except you can do a quest to get it, either from Metzen the Reindeer (h)(a) or by using a Holly Preserver.  Unfortunately, to use the Holly Preserver, you must have finished the quest for Metzen the Reindeer first, then done The Hero of the Day (h)(a) quest AND you need to be a master cook.  If you do both the alliance and the horde version, you will be able to pick up an extra 10 for 10 gold, throughout the year.  Preserved Holly is also not soulbound, and can be sold on the AH.

Tip: If you find Fresh or Preserved Holly for sale on the AH during the event, buy them up, to sell later after the event is over for more gold.

Also, make sure you grab all the Winter Veil gifts on ALL your characters.  Each of these can be banked if the items are not taken from the gifts.  Just leave the wrapped gift in the bank, for when you decide to use them.  Depending on your level, you will be able to pick up one or more items.

Winter Veil Gift, will give you a pet, called Crashin' Thrashin' Racer Controller, which can be useful to explore new areas, and possibly pull aggro for a small group of mobs.  It also counts towards the 100 pet achievement.

For our VIP members, I have some more gold tips, that can net OVER a 1000% return on investment.
