The Grateful Dead
80 (Requires 1)
The Grateful Dead is the one and only quest involved with the world event Day of the Dead. It involves cooking (or being lazy and buying) some and offering it to a cheerful spirit in a capital city's graveyard.
The following quest givers offer this quest:
Acquire some and give it to the Cheerful Spirit in <zone>'s graveyard. Use an to see the otherwise invisible spirit.
It's good to visit with friends and family again, though I may have overdone it... I've already eaten everything they made for me!
Might I trouble you for some more of that delicious Bread of the Dead? I'd be most grateful...
Chapman there sells the recipe, I think.
You don't have any Bread of the Dead, do you?
Ah, more delicious Bread of the Dead, thank you!
Please, take this in return... a little something fun for the holiday.
