Feast of Winter Veil icon

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.

Inv misc herb 092020


To acquire this item, simply type /kiss while targeting a Winter Reveler who are 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 spirit for 30 minutes.
  • The effect stacks with other spirit boosting effects such as Divine Spirit.
  • 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 15Inv misc herb 09 [Bros. Before Ho Ho Ho's] uses nine. The most difficult target is in a low thirties area.
  • Horde 15Inv misc herb 09 [Bros. Before Ho Ho Ho's] 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.
