Winter Veil has started and one of the items required to complete the meta-achievement, namely the Red Winter Hat, drops from a holiday-only boss in The Nexus, called Grand Magus Telestra. This boss has an interesting mechanic whereupon she grabs a member and whirls them around in the air while dealing some continuous but low damage. She also creates clones of herself that you have to defeat. I don't know if I'm explaining this right but if you're interested, read more under the Wowhead link.
My group was competent and we finished the whole dungeon quickly. Unfortunately I didn't win the hat, another did. For that reason I queued again for another Nexus, this time on normal. I waited almost 15 minutes before the dungeon tool found a group and these guys were all 70-71. I felt out of place in that group but surprisingly they were very good and we finished the whole dungeon in about 40 minutes without a hitch. This was by far the coolest and friendliest PUG since patch 3.3.
To cut a long story short, I won the hat this time but I suspect the other guys had no idea what the hat did, though I told them I would Need on it.
Here are the achievements I got in the heroic version. I also made my first 25 Emblems of Triumph.
