Pirates' Day 2016

Recommended Posts

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!

      The Sprite Darter Wings transmog/shop item/gift with a 6-month subscription stirred up a very large debate, including the usual accusations of Blizzard selling out (for the 15th or so time), a slippery slope where more and more items go to the shop and similar, but we actually got something great out the controversy as well!
      There's a new WoW meme format using the transmog set to perfection, mimicking the Putting on Clown Makeup classic. It uses the set nature of the transmog perfectly and localized the long-standing meme format to Azeroth. Here are some recent examples:

      Source.
      The format is very wide and can handle any number of topics, like the now standard "Blizzard will fix it":

      Source.
      Or PvP:

      Source.
      And finally, we come full-circle, as the format matches the content itself:

      Source.
      This particular format doesn't seem to be going anywhere, and we're sure to see many more images use it, as the localized Azerothian memes grow in number!

      We seem to finally have reached a point in the pre-patch where the hotfixes are getting smaller! This batch brings more Ny'alotha changes, in addition to... Wailing Caverns?

      Ny’alotha, the Waking City Dark Inquisitor Xanesh Fixed an issue that prevented the encounter from starting after defeating the enemies in the Ritual Chamber on all difficulties. Wailing Caverns Lady Anacondra Thorns now deals appropriate damage.

      Here come some ealy beta class changes for the week, as Paladins get a legendary redesign and more.

      Stopping in for two quick notes:
      –Legendary “Shadowbreaker, Dawn of the Sun” redesigned in the next build. The new design will work with both Light of Dawn and Word of Glory—we wanted to avoid a situation where two Holy-specific legendaries only buffed Light of Dawn.
      –Shining Light (Protection) duration extended. In general, “your next [ability]” buffs should be long enough that the time pressure to consume the buff isn’t too stressful.

      Many expected the pre-patch event to start this week, but that didn't turn out to be the case, but we did get a very short glimpse instead! Everyone's least favorite minion, Nathanos Blightcaller, has shown up at his house in the Eastern Plaguelands where players were able to kill him! Unfortunately he isn't there anymore, as it was a temporary bug/bleed through from the pre-patch event, where he is in fact a world boss with a quest associated with him. Blizzard quickly fixed the issue, so he was up for only around 2 hours.
      This didn't stop players from having their vengeance, either for the awful things he's done to the Alliance, or for the awful things he's said to Horde players! He didn't drop anything nor is he associated with any quests yet, so those of us that missed this short window will have to wait a bit more to wail on the annoying one.

      Update: We've taken a look and talk about the relevance and accuracy of logs in general, so definitely make sure to check that out here.

      Here we are at the start of week 3 of the Shadowlands pre-patch and we're taking another look at how the DPS specs are shaking out in Mythic Ny'alotha in this not-quite-BfA-or-Shadowlands period, with quite a few specs getting nerfs and hotfixes in the past week. Shadow and Affliction keep the top spots, as Arcane suffers some nerfs but sticks in there, and Fire Mages are coming back up as Frost also suffered some nerfs. As usual, we'll be taking a look at a few specs each week with our guide writers to see why they are where they are on the WarcraftLogs charts.
      We're starting with the 95th percentile, as that's our main focus for the analysis:

      And on to the 50th, just to get a better view of the playerbase:

      The most important part of this look at the logs is our guide writers taking a look at the charts and giving us some insight into what's really happening, so let's start with Warlocks, who saw Demonology improve a lot over the past week and Affliction stay at the top.
      Affliction and Demonology Warlock by Motoko:
      Mages got hit with some changes last week and it has affected how the specs rank.
      All Mage specs by Dutchmagoz:
      Elemental Shamans have been steady near the top since the pre-patch launched, so let's take a look at why.
      Elemental Shaman by Stormy:

      That's it for this week, although we will be taking a bit of a deeper look at Feral Druids soon, as they've been near or at the bottom since the pre-patch arrived. For more information on each spec you can check out our pre-patch class guides as well.
