Macabre marionette now a battle pet!(day of the dead pet)

The title says it all. Remember back during the first time you did the day of the dead event and you wanted to keep the skeleton forever? Now it looks you can! However this is ptr so it could change of course.

Hurray!!!

Day of the dead is like the Mexican version of hallowe'en...either that or where hallowe'en came from.

Pretty fascinating :) They celebrate death in a way that seems alien to European culture.

Yes and no. What that article (not suprisingly) leaves out is that the current Day of the Dead is really the Catholic church's adaptation of the existing cultural events, tying them to All Saint's Day. Also the catholic-based european cultures have their on take on this in "All Hallowed Eve". or Halloween.

But it's to some degree just another variation of ancestor worship that you see in almost any culture.

So is there a new mechanic for getting the pet? I seem to remember the old version being rather easy to get. have they changed it because of its new nature as a battlepet?

A bit of palindromic wisdom:
"Step on no pets!"
Casual player.. don't raid, don't PvP. Suffer from extreme altitis
I love pets - combat or non.
