Beating the Dead Horse Bloody

"well i mean, they couldn't get it right the first time, what makes you think they'll get it right trying to remove him."
yes, we are talking about the infamous macabre marionette; the one and only pet that has caused more trouble than any other companion in recent memory.

it's now day 3 of the marionette fiasco. while in-game support sent that wonderful message along with the pet item restoration (see post below), the item is still in my bags, and the cute little skeleton? it's happily following me around, without a care in the world or any sense of impending doom to come.

this raises the question: will it come? the impending doom that is.

blizzard has yet to announce whether or not they will be removing the item/pet from inventories and banks. it was speculated that the mass purging would be happening over night, during the tuesday maintenance. upon logging in, though, the little guy is still around, and the text on the item still reads "requires day of the dead" despite owners being able to summon it even though the event is over.

so we'll just have to wait and see what they intend on doing with this little guy. one theory is that blizzard is giving everyone a chance to thoroughly enjoy the macabre marionette (before removing it) since many had their pet disappear on them during the actual event.

or.. perhaps make it a permanent vanity pet, maraca dance included? one can only hope.
