The first thing that alerted me to it was some guildies talking about it on Twitter
Hey @bekitoburrito, Pirate Shenanigans have begun! AARRRR! #WoW #TalkLikeAPirateDay pic.twitter.com/6AjMNQ2JlM— fynralyl (@fynralyl) September 19, 2016
And then I saw a Tweet from my (pretty much) favoritest WildStar dev.
I see my Dread Captain persona is being more generous this year. ;) https://t.co/0WAUntqaO7— Kristen DeMeza (@TisCaydiem) September 19, 2016
And then I had a mini fangirl moment, because Caydiem is so awesome, and how cool is it to know the story behind a random NPC?!
So after running my first two Mythics of Legion (I got four upgrades!! Thanks T, Hearn, Pezzy, and Glom!), I flew on over to Booty Bay to have a drink with Dread Captain DeMeza, and take a selfie with her. Because any self-respecting fan of Miss Caydiem has to do this!

This hotfix is now live. More sharks should be spawning, quest items should now be shared, and Ol'Eary should always drop the toy. https://t.co/0ODZzT44bv— WarcraftDevs (@WarcraftDevs) September 20, 2016
So I waited with everyone else. Fairly impatiently, for him to respawn so that I could get the toy and go to bed.
First try, he died so fast that I couldn't even get a tag in. Second time, I joined in on a raid group that formed, tagged him, hit him a good few times... and still didn't get a toy. What. The. Actual. Fuck. So, I waited around to try to hit him a third time.
