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!

      Ban-Lu, Grandmaster's Companion is Monk's Class Mount. It doesn't have any color variations at this time and we're not sure if Blizzard plans to add different tints in future builds. Monks can get a pet from their Order Hall that perfectly matches their new mount. You'll probably have to unlock all Artifact traits to purchase it if it's gated like the new Death Knight pets.

       Ban-Fu, Cub of Ban-Lu (NPC - Ban-Fu, Cub of Ban-Lu) can be purchased from Mei Chele for 10,000 Order Resources.  Pet Abilities Spirit Claws Moon Tears Prowl Jade Claw Feed Vengeance

      Blizzard have an official preview of the brawls that will be coming to shake up the Battleground PvP system, with Gravity Lapse, Tarren Mill vs. Southshore and Warsong Scramble.
      Blizzard (source)
      With the release of patch 7.2: The Tomb of Sargeras, you can experience some of your favorite player-vs-player Battlegrounds with a little extra twist.
      Every other week a new PvP Brawl will be available to players looking for something just a little different. Each Brawl will offer a variety of modes, rules, and scenic changes to the usual Battleground gameplay, and you’ll find them in the Group Finder tool (hotkey “I”) in the Player vs. Player tab. Just like Random Battlegrounds, you’ll receive a reward for achieving victory. Here are just a few of the Brawls you can look forward to:
      Gravity Lapse – Resource Race
      Gravity getting you down? Step into the Eye of the Storm and be prepared for a whole new en-lighten-ing experience. Every minute, players on the battlefield will find themselves launched into the air, only to gently fall toward the ground once more in a perpetual aerial ballet as they try to accrue enough resources to take the win home for their team.
      Tarren Mill vs. Southshore – Warfare
      Originally introduced as a part of the World of Warcraft 10-Year Anniversary event, this Brawl harkens to the early days of WoW PvP with an epic battle between the two towns of Tarren Mill and Southshore. In this game of war, you’ll need to work as a team to deplete your foes’ resources to claim victory.
      Warsong Scramble – Capture the Flag
      Do you have a flag? Warsong Gulch has always been the scene of an epic Capture the Flag battle, but what happens when you can capture your enemy’s flag without your own at base? Find out when you step into this PvP Brawl! We’ve also added a few more power-ups to the field of battle to stir things up a bit. To win, your team will need to be the first to capture 5 flags.
      As with Micro-Holidays, these PvP Brawls are just the beginning. We look forward to seeing which ones become your favorites!
