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 10Copper for a stack of five from:

A few Snowballs are given as quest rewards for Feast of Winter Veil quests.

During the Feast of Winter Veil, Snowballs can be looted from snow mounds on the ground in the Alterac Mountains.

During the rest of the year Snowballs can be made by an engineer using a [SnowMaster 9000] at a rate of one Snowball per day.

Snowballs are also required to use:

  • Interestingly enough, the snowball stun can activate a Warrior's Second Wind-talent.[citation needed]
