The PX-238 Winter Wondervolt is a device run by Wonderform Operators that, when you touch or enter it, will give you a 30 minute buff which will turn you into a gnome decked out in Christmas colors (green or red). This is necessary to get the achievement With a Little Helper from My Friends.

  • In previous years this device would transform players into either red wearing gnomes or green wearing gnomes, but as of Winter Veil 2009, only the Alliance are able to turn into gnomes with the red outfits while Horde only turn into the gnomes that wear green outfits. This matches how Blizzard setup up the craft-able outfits first added in 2007.
  • Demonology warlocks can use metamorphosis to transform back into their character and cancel the buff.
