Pirates' Day Guide (September 19th)

Post by Noona on Fri 20 Sep 2013, 4:36 pm

Avast, ye landlubbers--it be Pirates' Day! Put on your  Bloodsail Admiral's Hat and get ready to celebrate in Booty Bay because September 19th is Pirates' Day in World of Warcraft--an in-game version of the international holiday Talk Like A Pirate Day. While not a full-blown holiday, Pirates' Day still has its very own achievement for the 24 hours day it comes to Azeroth. 

In 2013, this runs from 11am PST on September 19th to 11am PST on September 20th, so you could sneak this in too while getting ready forBrewfest tomorrow!

While you can get a one-hour disguise from pirates throughout the faction cities, the main festivities take place in Booty Bay; here players will find pirates celebrating on top the roof of the Booty Bay bank, including the tribute NPCs Cap'n Slappy and Ol' Chumbucket, which pay homage to the real founders of Talk like A Pirate Day. There's even special fireworks, music, and cannons! 

Once you've arrived, speak to the Dread Captain DeMeza and share a festive drink. She will grant you the  Dread Corsair buff and give you a sweet pirate costume of whatever race your character is which lasts 12 hours! This buff will stay on while mounted, in combat, and even persists through death--unless, of course, you're a druid and you like to shapeshift. If you really love the pirate look, cloth-wearers can transmog to the Buccanneer's Regalia and top it off with a  Admiral's Hat or  Bloodsail Admiral's Hat.

Obtaining this buff will also earn you one achievement:  The Captain's Booty. Since it can only be obtained in this 24 hour window, it's one of the rarer achievements in-game--even if it doesn't help you with any holiday metas! If you really want to show your pirate pride, consider doing  Avast Ye, Admiral! throughout the year to get  Bloodsail Admiral's Hat.

You can even get into the spirit of the festivities with the Pirate Speak addon which can be found on WoWInterface. Pirate Speak will spice up your in-game chatting with familiar pirate dialect, though you will have to enable out-of-date addons. Download it and get in the spirit of the holiday--while also annoying everyone!
