Avast, mateys!

Commoners outfitted as scurvy pirates have appeared in all the world’s cities bringing rum news: the Dread Captain DeMeza and her crew have landed in Booty Bay and declared this day to be Pirates’ Day! If you’re brave enough to share her grog, you may have what it takes to become an honorary crew member for the day.

On one day only, you too can celebrate Pirates’ Day. Rumor has it that Dread Captain DeMeza herself will invade Booty Bay, bringing corsairs and cannons to fire on approaching vessels. Keep an eye out for First Mate Hapana, and expect to see commoners in pirate garb in capital cities. Ask them to help you dress like a pirate, and join in the fun.

Entertainment

Dread Corsair

Talking with Captain DeMeza will give you the Dread Corsair buff, which lasts for 12 hours, and persists through death (although it will be lost after shapeshifting). Your character’s gender and race don’t change when you adopt this piratical look.

Dread Crew

Briefly ashore for mischief and revelry, a crowd of pirates dance, talk, eat, drink, laugh, and shoot fireworks atop Booty Bay’s bank. Ask Baron Revilgaz what he thinks of these invading, good for nothing bilge-rats.

Thunderous celebration

A trio of cannoneers will fire their cannons out into the bay every so often – at times, just barely missing the sails of the incoming transport. Shiver me timbers!

Roof party!

Lively pirate-themed music plays upon the rooftop. Time to /dance!

Corsair's Costume

This costume buff gives you the looks of a real Corsair and lasts for one hour. Just accost one of the appropriately attired commoners hanging around Azeroth’s cities and demand your outfit. As with the longer-lasting Dread Corsair buff, you’ll still be the same old you underneath your new get-up.

Pirate's Day offers a single achievement, obtained by sharing a drink with Dread Captain DeMeza.
