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!

      Gul'dan also drops vanity items that aren't visible under the Nighthold loot tables in the journal. Players on reddit have been reporting two toy drops off Gul'dan. Both were obtained on Normal or higher difficulty, so it's safe to assume that they won't drop in LFR.
      Skull of Corruption Is only lootable by Demon Hunters, but it can be traded to anyone else after, even sold in the Auction House. It makes your character kneel with a skull in his/her hand. Memory Cube is rewarded upon completing a quest line which starts by killing Chronomatic Anomaly that drops Mysterious Cube. When interacted with, players will "relive" various Legion cinematics. Golden Hearthstone Card: Lord Jaraxxus Turns the player into Lord Jaraxxus for one minute and replaces actionbars with emotes he does during the encounter.

      There's one more toy unique to Demon Hunters - Fel Focusing Crystal. It hasn't dropped yet. It's also BoE.

      As you maybe have already noticed, Mythic+ rewards have been increased with the latest reset and Nighthold's introduction, but there's more coming next week when mythic opens (and your M+ chests you earn this week will have that level of reward as well). So while the base ilevel in M+12 now is 870 (885 for your weekly chest) and that's the most you can get now, next week if you finish a M+15 you'll be able to get an 885 (900 in weekly chest).

      With the opening of the Nighthold on Normal and Heroic difficulties, the maximum item level for Warforged or Titanforged items is now 925. Any item that could previously drop at or above item level 895 can now reach a maximum of 925.
      Next week, when Mythic Nighthold releases, we’ll be increasing the cap on Mythic Keystone dungeon rewards from 12 to 15 (at 5 item levels per difficulty level). If you’re able to complete a Level 15 Keystone run this week, you’ll have a Mythic 15 reward waiting for you in your Order Hall cache next week.

      Touch of a Titan is a new quest offered by Arcanomancer Vridiel in Dalaran that rewards Distilled Titan Essence when you collect 50 Essence of Aman'Thul. The quest is here to upgrade existing Legendary items from 910 to item level 940.
      All Legendaries that drop now are of item level 940 by default. Existing Legendaries can be upgraded by completing the quest. The quest is repeatable. You can't hold more than 50 Essence of Aman'Thul at a time, so turn in the quest as soon as you can. You don't need to accept the quest for Essences to drop. The weekly cache gives 15 Essence of Aman'Thul. Each Nighthold boss drops 1 - 3 Essence of Aman'Thul. Winning 10 2v2 arenas awards 5 Essence of Aman'Thul. Winning 10 3v3 arenas awards 5 Essence of Aman'Thul. If you win Rated Battlegrounds 3 times, you can get 5 Essence of Aman'Thul. Emissary caches from world quests give 1 - 4 Essence of Aman'Thul each. According to redditor Not_athrowaweigh, you can farm up to 120 Essence of Aman'Thul before Mythic Nighthold opens next week, allowing the upgrade of two Legendary items.
