Day of the Dead 2009 (Nov 1 - Nov 2) - Quest Guide + Information!
Fresh on the heels of the
event begins the
Day of the Dead
Dia de los Muertos
) event in World of Warcraft.
This event is a memorial holiday in which we celebrate the honor and memory of those who have passed on. They make a spiritual return to our lands, which we prepare with food and festivities, for only two days:
. The holiday is a
in-game event, similar to
, but it's pretty interesting regardless!
Everything you need to know about this world event can be found after the break.
Tip: Get some
(at least 1 of each) before heading to a
. This will save you precious travelling time when doing the quest below.
To take part in the events festivities, you must first locate
, an undead female (and a reference to
La Calavera Catrina
) who can be found near the
city. She will give you some information regarding the holiday itself, and it is most important that you remember to /dance with her - upon doing so, you will earn the only achievement for this holiday,
. You will also gain the buff
, which will change you into either Catrina or Chapman for 12 hours. Why exactly? I don't know. Who cares, I'm a druid and I'll lose the shapeshift in a matter of seconds, right?
The only quest available during the event is

Use the flower at any city graveyard to allow your character to see the cheerful spirit remaining there. The spirit will offer you the quest, The Grateful Dead, requesting that you bring the spirit an offering of food - in this case,
Pan de Muerto
recipe requires 1 Cooking skill to learn, and the recipe can be purchased from the graveyard vendor Chapman. Simply whip up a batch of tasty bread and bring it to the cheerful spirit.
You will be rewarded with a temporary pet, the
- an awesome skeleton pet wearing a sombrero and wielding maracas! However, for some completely absurd reason, this pet can
be used during the Day of the Dead event; it cannot be learned and kept like other companion pets - meaning it's a pet that only lasts two days. This renders the Marionette almost entirely un-fun and it will soon be forgotten - bummer to all the pet collectors out there. :/
There are a few other unique items that can be obtained during this holiday, though none are permanent. In addition to selling the flowers required for the Grateful Dead quest (
) and the
