Minion of Grumpus
Minion of Grumpus is a bind on equip, therefore SELLABLE mount that you can get during Winters Veil
Winter Veil Mount
Minion of Grumpus drops from a “Savage Gift”
You can buy Savage Gifts for Merry Supplies at your Garrison
Small chance drop from Savage Gift, which can be purchased from the garrison festival vendor after completing the four dailies with Merry Supplies. The mount is tradable, and if you do not loot the item inside you are able to refund and purchase a new one until the mount drops, took me about 70 tries.
Farming Minion of Grumpus
Method 1 –
When you receive your first Savage Gift, instead of looting it, shift-click it to open and peek inside but do not loot. If it’s not the gift you want, then return to to the vendor for a refund and then purchase a new Savage Gift and check. Repeat until the gift contains a Grumpus Mount!
EDIT 13:21 HOTFIXED
Complete Winter Veil dailies which start at your Garrison . 5 dailies should get your enough Merry Supplies for a chance at a Savage Gift. You can repeat this with all your alts!
Savage Gift can also contain
Oil, Garrison Resources, Apexis Crystals or
Medallion of the Legion (4-6k EU price)
Frozen Arms of a Hero (1-1.5k EU)
Minion of Grumpus (unknown price yet)
Elixir of the Rapid Mind (3-4k EU)
There is currently a low spawn rate for the quest “what horrible presents” but if you join a cross realm group, you can switch to a quieter server to find the quest items.
With a mount this easy to get, unless there is a hotfix, then the mount will be worthless, players will be giving them away before the end of Winter Veil. However, if you are quick, you should be able to sell a few, especially if you deep undercut the over-hopeful first few sellers.
Update, 24 hours later.
After the hotfix the mounts are once again rare. Method 2 (do all the dailies with all the alts) still works, so good luck
