Another year has come and gone (almost) and I’m back to the event which started it all. I’m not sure why I wasn’t really feeling it this year, perhaps it’s because I’ve said it all before or the fact we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving here but I wanted to add a quick word as the event winds down for most of you.
I’m thankful that my nephews heart surgery was uneventful yesterday much to the relief of our whole family and I must say the OT was packed with a huge surgical team. I’m also thankful that the number of serious health issues our family has endured over the last 25 years or so has resulted in the best case scenario thus far. There’s something to be said for a strong faith and family who rallies around when it counts.
I just hope the coming year will be filled with good health, success and much happiness.
Thank you to everyone who has joined me on this Azerothian journey. I cherish your continued kindness and friendship.
Before you start, take one Ice Cold Milk and one Simple Flour for the Bread of the Dead requirement. The recipe itself may be purchased from Chapman – one of the NPCs in your racial Capital City graveyard. The Ghostly Cooking Fire (located around Catrina) may be used to make the bread but note it’s a conjured item so it can’t be sent to your other characters however the raw materials can.
In order to see the quest NPC, you’ll need to purchase some Orange Marigold or the Bouquet of Orange Marigolds from Chapman as well. The buff only lasts 30secs so look for the Cheerful Spirit standing in the graveyard (for Blood Elves, to the right of the above NPCs) offering the following quest – The Grateful Dead.
The pet will be rewarded upon quest completion and is uncommon when learnt but easily fixed with the help of a Battle-Stone. He will also dance when stationary and may be caged so you’ll see these in the AH.
The quest may also be completed in Dalaran or Shattrah.
Not much has changed from Hallow’s End 2012 so if you’ve already completed the achievement from last year there won’t be much to do at all; unless of course you’re still after the Headless Horseman’s mount or helm. Note that his loot remains at 470 but that’s not a big deal since the Timeless Isle offers better gear that is easily obtainable.
The Candy Buckets are worth picking up for the 9G alone (at least for 90s) so check out the complete guide. I wanted to pick up a few Candy Buckets while Cool and I waited for our LFR queue so as I flew us through Dustwallow, I suggested we do Ony25. Even though the mount didn’t drop, the two new achievements made it all worthwhile.
About a minute after we killed her, our queue popped so we headed in there. I managed to get a couple of pieces (including the chest token for shadow) and Cool even managed to get the pet from Sha which he gave to me <3 However, this excitement was somewhat short-lived when I zoned out to see this…
Looked pretty bad from the back but Cool made it worse by dancing… so uncalled for.
