wow Pirates' Day 2016

6 posts in this topic


Ahoy, mateys! Grab your hats, eye patches, hooks and wooden legs and let's get the party started in Booty Bay.

Pirates' Day is celebrated today both in the real world and in Azeroth. Dread Captain DeMeza and her crew are waiting for you in Booty Bay. You should definitely take the chance to take a break from your raid preparation and pay her a visit (you will also earn 10 Achievement points).

Blizzard LogoBlizzard Entertainment

Don your best piratical gear and set sail for Booty Bay because Pirate’s Day has arrived. No costume? No problem. Once recruited by Dread Captain DeMeza, you’ll look the part in (nearly) every way. You’ll just need to do a little /dance to win her over.

If you get attached to your new look you’ll want to do the new quest, “You’re Gonna Need a Bigger Boat!” to get an Emergency Pirate Outfit (x5) for that time beyond Pirate’s Day that you really just NEED to let your inner pirate out. But, no buccaneer is truly complete without a little something extra… like a parrot – a parrot called, “Petey”. Captain DeMeza can help on that front too, but you’ll need to give her a few shiny coins in exchange.

You never know when the Captain is going to need you to leap into action–though probably her shouts could be a good indicator.  There’s something in the water in Booty Bay and it’s an elite shark named Ol’Eary*. Gather your crew and prepare to take him out.

Those truly generous of heart (or just plain foolhardy) can also purchase a Big Bag of Booty to ‘share’ with those around you. It’s a bargain at 300 gold – for everyone else.

*Not responsible for shark induced nightmares including sharks in bathtubs, swimming pools, small fountains, ponds, lakes, tornadoes, or any other location in which sharks probably aren’t but you’re sure they COULD be.


A new rare mob, called Ol' Eary, has been added this year. According to Wowhead comments, the shark spawns at 37, 67 in the Cape of Stranglethorn and has a 33% chance to drop the toy Slightly-Chewed Insult BookSlightly-Chewed Insult Book. The mob has a 30-minute respawn timer. Other than that, you can check our small guide on Pirates' Day.

This world event only lasts 24 hours and it is directly followed by Brewfest. Have a lovely Pirates' Day and don't forget your bottle of rum!

      Patch 7.1 added a lot of gray items with no level requirement. They are selling for high prices right now and find demand among bank alts and various PvP twinks, so instead of vendoring, you can resell them in the Auction House.
      All the gear has item level 500, which is huge.
      List of Items:
      Common Legion Blade Can be farmed from Felguard Legionnaire in Highmountain. Broken Girdle of Treachery Shattered King's Defender Worn Battlescar Boots Tarnished Mithril Chain of Heroism Overgrown Forestlord Striders Thin-Soled Fiend Slayer Boots Sagging Shoulderpads of the Merciless Dented Triptych Shield Heart-Snuffed Leggings Creaking Legplates of the Innocent Potentate's Threadbare Headdress TSM Import String
      i:132168,i:143665,i:143666,i:143667,i:143668,i:143669,i:143670,i:143671,i:143672,i:143673,i:143674,I:143675 I have no idea if this is intended, it may happen that Blizzard applies a hotfix to add the level requirement, but for the time being, it's good for gold making.

      Diablo's 20th Anniversary is coming to World of Warcraft and a lot of Diablo-inspired items have been added. The event is supposed to be held somewhere in December.
      The achievement we'll be able to obtain is a Feat of Strength. Given that Diablo I was released on December 31, we can expect the event soon. Items associated with it are also Diablo items.
      I assume Stone of Jordan may be the currency for this event, used to purchase the bag and guitar.
      Hearthstone Variations
      Tome of Town Portal Blank Diabolic Tome Scroll of Town Portal Bags
      Horadric Satchel Diablo II Charms
      Two items that do not require to be equipped but grant stats have been added.
      Serpent's Grand Charm // Serpent's Grand Charm Stalwart's Grand Charm // Stalwart's Grand Charm Misc
      Twelve-String Guitar I've added a video below and there's Diablo music added to WoW. Probably it will play when you strum the strings.

      You may have heard the term sniper when it comes down to gold making. Let's look at this powerful TSM feature in more detail.
      Sniper is TradeSkillMaster's powerful function which allows real-time AH scanning. While performing the scan, it constantly fetches the last page of the Auction House for auctions that have been posted way below what they should sell for. Items that have been posted cheap by accident also show up on your scan list for a quick buyout. All you need is a proper setup.
      How Much Gold Can I Make on Average?
      It's hard to tell as you would need to have Auction House opened all the time and the more you scan the more gold you can earn. What I'd suggest is to have a separate WoW account just for Sniping. This way, you can constantly scan and also enjoy the game on your main account at the same time.
      Here are some of my latest snipes listed by their average resale profit. See Obliterum in that list? That was an accident.

      Where Do I Get TSM?
      Download it via the official website of TradeSkillMaster. It's good to install complement addons, such as TSM Destroy, Vendoring or the entire suite. The TSM desktop app available for both Windows/Mac is also a must, so you don't have to constantly rescan the Auction House. Setup
      Run the TSM app before launching the game. Addons obviously need to be placed in the */Addons folder as usual and enabled in-game. The Formula
      First we need to define Custom Prices and minprice. Type /TSM and on the firs tab, navigate to Custom Price Sources and insert the following code, hit okay.
      max(min(DBHistorical, DBGlobalMarketAvg, DBGlobalHistorical, DBRegionMarketAvg, DBRegionHistorical), VendorSell)
      Now we need to define our sniper formula. It is used to filter out all the items to tell us which is the best to buy and resell. You can configure it under Options/Core Features and from the "Module Options" dropdown, go to Shopping > Sniper Options. We'll be inserting our custom formula in the field just under the "Test Selected Sound" button.
      I have been using the fomula of BilisOnyxia for some time now and this is the code you need to insert there.
      check(minprice - 100000g, 90% minprice, check(minprice - 50000g, 80% minprice, check(minprice - 10000g, 60% minprice, check(minprice - 5000g, 50% minprice, check(minprice - 1000g, 30% minprice, check(minprice - 500g, 20% minprice, check(minprice - 50g, 10% minprice))))))) What Does It Mean?
      The check() function works like an if/else conditional statement. The function can take 2-3 parameters. Each parameter is seperated by a comma. What the check() function does is, it checks if the first parameter is greater than zero. If it is, it will use the second parameter. If it is not greater than zero (equal to or smaller than zero) it will use the third parameter (If there is no third parameter the whole function will result in an invalid price).
      So, check(DBMarket - 100g, 50% DBMarket, 30% DBMarket) would first check whether the result of "DBMarket - 100g" is greater than zero. If it is, it will use 50% DBMarket, if it is not it will use 30% DBMarket. What this means is, if an item has a DBMarket value of more than 100g, 50% DBMarket will be used, if it has a DBMarket value of 100g or less, 30% DBMarket will be used.
      Knowing how the check() function works, you might already see where the formula is going.
      Here is a little easier to read breakdown of the formula:
      If an item's value is greater than 100k gold, use 90%. If an item's value is greater than 50k gold, use 80%. If an item's value is greater than 10k gold, use 60%. If an item's value is greater than 5k gold, use 50%. If an item's value is greater than 1k gold, use 30%. If an item's value is greater than 500g gold, use 20%. If an item's value is greater than 50g, use 10%. If an item's value is 50g or less, exclude it no matter how cheap it gets listed. We're all set now, navigate to the last tab of the Auction House UI > Custom Filter / Other Sources and click "Start Sniper". This will start the scan, you can set up the sound you want to hear when an item appears in the list for quick buyout.

      Sniper Results Awareness
      Sniping is supposed to be semi-automated. It still requires common sense as some results may be false positives, like duped Saber's gems, which are often underpriced.

      The boss has been found and killed! See how to do it yourself as well as a mount pic and boss fight video.
      Update 2: ZosynPriest has discovered Nightbane is a timed event, similar to Zul'Aman. Once you enter the instance, you'll have a fixed timer, indicated by the "The strange chill of a dark presence winds through the air" emote and from that moment you have exactly eight minutes to finish the Opera event and click Soul Fragment.
      Failing the Event gives you the following emote: "The air grows slightly warmer".
      After collecting the first fragment, you will get a buff Medivh's Echo, which is now your new timer.

      You can gain +5 minutes for every fragment you collect.
      1 is in Opera audience 1 before the Maiden of Virtue 1 after killing Moroes 1 in the Spider Room 1 after Curator When you manage to complete it in time, your buff will change to Medivh's Presence. Go to Nightbane's room and talk to Medivh. It awards the One Night in Karazhan and he will summon Nightbane for you. After wipes Nightbane won't despawn.
      Update: It seems some players have already summoned Nightbane. Observing the player's armory he doesn't have the last boss achievement. Maybe he finished the quest line already by switching lockouts.
      My theory was that Nightbane became available during the final part of the quest. Why? Look at the list of the following items. All are a requirement for the above quests and guess what? The items are always +1 by ID and go from first to last (all are quest items related to Karazhan ring quest line).
      Empty Box of Motivator Crystals Box of 'New' Horseshoes Bouquet of Roses Positive Review Negative Review Negative Review Little Red's Cape  Charred Bone Fragments (party loot) start the following quest that isn't in-game yet. We'll probably assemble Nightbane from the bone fragments -> Nightbane Transform.   
      Remember the Violet Seal of the Archmage? New versions of the old Karazhan ring have been added. They can be obtained through a series of quests that might lead to Nightbane
      There are four versions of the ring ranging from item level 850 up to 875.
      Violet Seal of the Archmage Fragments of the Past need to be completed to get the initial version of the ring. Violet Seal of the Archmage Complete Book Wyrms followed by Rebooting the Cleaner to get the first ring upgrade. Violet Seal of the Archmage Now for the third upgrade there are no quests in any databases. I fiddled around with in-game linking and found two more quests, which will likely upgrade the ring to its 860 version.
      The horseshoes can be a drop from Attumen or Midnight.

      Violet Seal of the Grand Magus The last ring has the same item level as Nightbane loot and offers a teleport to Karazhan on a 4-hour cooldown. I assume it's the final reward after defeating Nightbane.

      2 days, 2 hotfixes, with relatively minor changes, but Warlocks can now be Warlocks again and enslave demons above level 109! And, as usual with hotfixes there is one "finally, why did it take them this long!" in here as well, as we'll stop getting as many follower item level missions if we have all of them maxed out on ilevel!
      October 26th
      Death Knight
      Fixed a bug that caused Dark Transformation to not trigger some additional effects, and not correctly transform abominations into flesh golems. Druid
      Fixed a bug where Shred could sometimes fail to deal damage or generate combo points. Full Moon is again in the Arcane school. Hunter
      Bestial Fury will correctly increase Bestial Wrath's damage bonus to your pet and Hati. Warlock
      Enslave Demon can correctly target enemies up to one level above the caster. Class Halls
      Missions will be less likely to offer follower armor set items to players that have maxed out the item level of all their champions. Items
      The legendary Rogue ring Insignia of Ravenholdt should now be able to hit creatures with large hitboxes. The legendary Warlock belt Power Cord of Lethtendris should no longer incorrectly have a chance to be activated by targets that already have Unstable Affliction. PvP
      Honor Talents
      Thorns now has a 1 second cooldown between procs. Quests
      Killing the Waking Nightmare first during quest, "Waking Nightmares" will no longer prevent players from seeing Slumbering Nightmare. Previous hotfixes.
