Day of the Dead known issues

Feeling a little disconnected with Day of the Dead? Is your head not fitting on your neck exactly right? No, it's not because of my lame attempts at two puns right there, but it is because of a series of known issues being acknowledged by Blizzard today. The major ones are as follows:
  • Macabre Marionette disappearing when changing zones (Fixed!)
  • Players being disconnected when retrieving Bread of the Dead or Candy Skulls from the mail, auction house, and guild banks (Fixed!)
  • The Day of the Dead costume may not last the full 12 hour duration
Blizzard doesn't want you to contact them about these issues, since the GMs can't help you with them. And while the disconnection issues, if it happens to you, could hinder your ability to complete the quests associated with the one day event -- it will not stop you from dancing with Catrina to get the achievement.

The full announcement from Blizzard after the break.

Update from the blues: "Update: Novermber 1, 2009 - 9:15 AM PST - A hotfix has been applied which will prevent various Day of the Dead items from disappearing while changing zones or retrieving items from the mail."


From Aredek:
As you may be aware, this weekend we will be celebrating the memories of those we've lost by observing the Day of the Dead within Azeroth. We welcome you to visit the graveyards of all major cities to take part in the festivities.

We are currently investigating the following issues surrounding the event:

  • Macabre Marionette disappearing when changing zones
  • Players being disconnected when retrieving Bread of the Dead or Candy Skulls from the mail, auction house, and guild banks
  • The Day of the Dead costume may not last the full 12 hour duration

Unfortunately, the Game Master staff will be unable to provide immediate assistance as these issues also affect our ability to provide reimbursement. Please refrain from submitting an in-game petition regarding the issues described within this thread unless otherwise instructed.

Our Quality Assurance and Development teams are working to identify and address these issues as quickly as possible so that you may fully enjoy the Day of the Dead events. Should more information become available, updates will be provided within this thread.

Thank you for your patience, and enjoy the festivities!
