Hoist sail and make way for Booty Bay because Pirate’s Day begins September 19! A WoW Classic version of Pirate's Day will also be available for hardy heroes wishing to embrace the pirate's life.
Bring Your Sea Shanty to Booty Bay
Pirates have taken over the goblin town of Booty Bay, and Captain DeMeza is recruiting any scurvy dog she can into her buccaneer ranks. Visit her or her henchmen in the capital cities if the pirate’s life is for you!
Feeling out of place in Booty Bay without a proper costume? Don’t worry. /Dance one little jig with the Dread Captain DeMeza, and she’ll be impressed enough to press you into her crew and outfit you properly. If you get attached to your new look, you can do the quest You’re Gonna Need a Bigger Boat! Succeed, and you’ll get an Emergency Pirate Outfit (or five) for when Pirate’s Day is but a distant memory, and your inner pirate is clawing to get out.
What good is a pirate without an avian companion on their shoulder? Captain DeMeza (for the exchange of a few shiny coins) can help you call forth a temporary companion named Petey to take with you wherever you sail.
From time to time, the captain will shout for a brave party to take on a terror of the deeps–an elite shark known as Ol’Eary. Make sure you have a hearty crew with you, or you could become just so much chum in the waters of the bay.
Join the Beach Party
Once you and your crew have helped the captain handle Ol’Eary, you can celebrate with the crew at a little beach party just south of Booty Bay. Those with the Feat of Strength "Advast Ye, Admiral" can also purchase a toy from Edward Techt–the Jolly Roger to show off their dedication to the cause.
If you’re really feeling generous, you can also purchase a Big Bag of Booty from Captain DeMeza and spread the wealth around to all your pirate pals in a burst of glittery glory.
Capital city commoners will be donning the latest swashbuckling fashion. Speak to any of them, and they'll set you up with pirate garb for one hour and give you the newest scuttlebutt. Apparently, Dread Captain DeMeza is riling up the crowd with talk of Pirate's Day.
Once in Booty Bay, look for Dread Captain DeMeza and her crew on the bank rooftop, and you can speak to her to raise a toast and become a pirate for the day. Doing so will grant you a 12-hour pirate costume buff, and you'll complete the achievement, The Captain's Booty.
When: September 19 (24 hours)
Where: Darnassus, Exodar, Ironforge, Orgrimmar, Silvermoon City, Stormwind, Thunderbluff, and Undercity
Get out there, ye scurvy barnacles, and earn yer sea legs, aaargh!
