The Day of the Dead (1st – 3rd of November) brings the Macabre Marionette to life as part of my Christoph VonFeasel Elekk strategy.

Chapman

Before you start, take one Ice Cold Milk and one Simple Flour for the Bread of the Dead requirement. The recipe itself may be purchased from Chapman – one of the NPCs in your racial’s Capital City graveyard. The Ghostly Cooking Fire (located around Catrina) can be used to make the bread but note it’s a conjured item so it can’t be sent to your other characters.

Cheerful-Blood-Elf-Spirit

In order to see the quest NPC, you’ll need to purchase some Orange Marigold or the Bouquet of Orange Marigolds from Chapman as well. The buff only lasts 30secs so look for the Cheerful Spirit standing in the graveyard (for Blood Elves, to the right of the above NPCs) offering the following quest – The Grateful Dead.

For Taurens, go to 56, 18 at the base of Thunder Bluff.

Macabre

Completing the quest rewards this dancing pet. It’s uncommon when learnt and cageable so expect to see some in the AH.
