I picked up a second Winter Wail after defeating the respawned red Dragon boss in the Deep Cauldron in the latest update that has left.

Upon completing the appropriate quest in the Elder Forest and getting the Ancestral Sword of the Deer, I noticed the first Winter Wail I had in my inventory appears to be a permanent fix when I went to get rid of it, presumably due to a tag with preventing an important quest item being sold.

Mod Note: 3 screen shots deleted for organizational purposes.

Yes, that is a design choice. You can toss the spare weapon in a chest somewhere and forget about it.

There were two options to dovetail the Winter Wail into the new content:
1) Re-spawn the dragon with a drop so players that previously killed the dragon could still access the new content. This is what David the Developer chose to do.
2) Not re-spawn the dragon and make players start a brand new game to access the new content. This would put a lot of players in a bad place.

Note, a few major enemies were re-spawn to allow players to get the improved loot drops (including one very impressive cloak).
