World of Warcraft news » Celebrate with the Dead During Day of the Dead!
Can you feel it?
The spirit world draws close during the Day of the Dead.
This is why we decorate the graves of our dearly departed with flowers and candles and offerings: To welcome them back, even if only for a time.
So come! Dance with me!
Let us cherish and honor those we have lost in their ghostly presence, so that they might eat and drink and smile and know that they are loved. – Catrina
When: November 1-3
Where: Graveyards of all Capital Cities
Don’t wait for your invitation to arrive and /dance with Catrina to take the form of a skeleton and earn the achievement Dead Man’s Party.
A little Bread of the Dead can go a long way to restoring your health, so make sure to purchase the recipe from Chapman, who can also be found in Dalaran in the Broken Isles. He’s got a few other goodies that you can purchase to make it a truly festive holiday, so be sure to speak to him to see his wares.
You could be a contender and earn the achievement — To the Afterlife — during this holiday by defeating a contender while wearing a contender’s outfit purchased during Day of the Dead.
Contender costumes include: ”Blooming Rose” Contender’s Costume, “Night Demon” Contender’s Costume, “Purple Phantom” Contender’s Costume, “Santo’s Sun” Contender’s Costume, and “Snowy Owl” Contender’s Costume and will add to your toy collection.
