Vanity pet collectors around the world have been waiting with bated breath to see if the Day of the Dead will bring us a new cool pet. The Macabre Marionette that we saw data-mined from patch 3.2.2 will indeed be available during this brief holiday. Unfortunately it's not a true vanity pet.
The Day of the Dead is a time to pay tribute to our dearly departed. Celebrants gather in graveyards to "cook, drink, don costumes and more!" Apparently the "and more" part involves feeding over-indulgent friendly spirits. As a reward you will receive the Macabre Marionette. Here's how:
- Visit the graveyard outside your race's home city.
- Purchase an Orange Marigold or a Bouquet of Orange Marigolds from Chapman.
- Use the flowers to see the otherwise invisible spirit.
- Acquire some Bread of the Dead (recipe sold by Chapman) and give it to the Cheerful Spirit.
