Day of the Dead Guide: November 1st
is today in Azeroth--it only lasts one day and serves as an awesome minor holiday, similar to
, to close out Hallow's End. We've whipped up a small guide so you can know the quests and achievement for the event; make sure you don't skip out if you're an achievement hunter, as it boasts one achievement that can't be obtained any other day of the year!
Tip: Get some
(at least 1 of each) before heading to a

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
of any capital 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 her male counterpart, Chapman, for twelve hours.
The only quest available during the event is
The Grateful Dead
, and this quest can only be completed once. The quest will only be available at
your race's home city
unless you have access to
where the quest can be completed by any race/faction, including Pandaren. So taurens complete the quest for

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 only 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 useless, which is a shame as it's a very cute pet and formerly was included in the battle pet journal on beta.
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
, Chapman also sells the following seasonal faire:
- - It's seasonal candy for eating.
- - This candle, when placed on the ground, offers a 4 Spirit buff to anyone in the area around it, similar to a
- - This exotic mask resembles a traditional Day of the Dead skull motif.
Be sure to take a tour of the various faction graveyards while using
