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).

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!

      People jumping into a well from a very long way away. Because.
      Back in my day™ all we did was idle on the old Orgrimmar bank roof all day and it was totally exciting. This newfangled Legion expansion is taking everything to the extreme, including idling in the city - and this proves it! The latest reddit activity seems to be jumping from quite a long way a way straight into the sewer portal well for... reasons, and there have been quite a few damn impressive holes in one. Super holes in one you might say. Usually with these you slowly build up to the amazing one, but the amazing one is just too amazing to wait, so let's just begin at the top with the clear winner, with an outside the green shot that will haunt you (source):
      Then we have some Monk action (source):
      Unfortunately can't embed this one so you'll have to go through the agony of having to actually click it! (Source)
      The Warrior one has a plot twist at the end: he DIDN'T end up in Azsuna! (Source)
      The druid version seems a little boring, but impressive nonetheless (source):
      Then we have a ground level shot (source):

      And finally, I know I said the best one was at the beginning, but I lied. Here's the clearly most impressive super hole in one (source):

      Yesterday, I wrote about updates to the Shoe Shine Kit toy and how its tracking quest got stealth fixed in the latest 7.2.5 PTR build.
      The toy was unavailable until now, because Blizzard simply forgot to fix it and the chest could not be opened. 
      Sheddle Glossgleam leaves the toy store (2nd floor of Photonic Playground - 44, 47) at 12 AM (PST) / 3 AM (EST) realm time and goes drinking in Legendermain Lounge. During his absence, a chest spawns that contains the toy - Shoe Shine Kit. Only one person may loot it, because it will disappear afterwards. The toy makes shoes sparkle. There are still items in the game that haven't been discovered yet, such as the Fishing Artifact appearance The Broken Hook and more.

      In addition to pets coming with the Deadmines Pet Battle Dungeon, the latest 7.2.5 PTR build added two pets that drop from the Time-Lost Wallet inside the Deaths of Chromie Scenario and our friends over at WarcraftPets seem to have discovered a new fairie dragon pet possibly from Argus.
      Ageless Bronze Drake (Ageless Bronze Drake)
      The pet is a miniature version of the Reins of the Bronze Drake mount and has a unique Rewind Time ability "This particular drake has oddly retained its age throughout its travels, but its size has certainly changed."
      Bronze Proto-Whelp (Bronze Proto-Whelp)
      The pet's a miniature version of the Reins of the Time-Lost Proto-Drake (Storm Peaks) mount and comes with the an ability to bend time "The Bronze Proto-Whelps have been discovered only in the most peculiar of timelines."
      Sun Darter Hatchling - Faerie Dragon Pet
      Quintessence from WarcraftPets suggests this pet may be from Argus as noted by its description. If you try to paste the item in-game (Patch 7.2), it seems to coincide with a mount tagged named as "REUSE", however 7.2.5 Mount Journal lists the pet and so does the in-game tooltip.

      Sun Darter Hatchling drops from Oddly-Colored Egg (Source N/A) "This unique species of faerie dragon is not usually found on Azeroth."

      Nether Disruptor is again up in both regions and with Seal Your Fate, you can get a free Seal of Broken Fate each day the Nether Disruptor is active.
      The good news is that these bonus seals go beyong the normal 3 limit. All you need to do is accept the quest Fate Sealed from Maggie "Slither" Masterson (coords: 41.19 // 64.46).
      World Boss Apocron

      The permanent Nether Disruptor perk (Epic Hunter) always unlocks a Broken Shore World Boss that drops item level 900 loot and this time, it's Apocron. Below is the loot he drops.

      Four new bosses were added to the Broken Shore. Base item level of their loot is 890+. Old world bosses remain untouched with 860+ loot. The bosses will spawn when the Nether Disruptor's active.
      Patch 7.2 World Boss Loot Tables
      Below you can find loot from the new world bosses. We don't know yet if they share respawn timers with existing world bosses.
