Day of the Dead (November 1st - 3rd) Guide for 2014
runs from November 1st-3rd to close out Hallow's End. We've whipped up a small guide so you can know the quests and achievement for the event; make sure you don't skip out if you're an achievement hunter, as it boasts one achievement that you can only get for a few days!

: Sweep contenders in a 4-yard cone for 20% health and knock them down for 1.50 sec.
: Jump forward and strike contenders in a X-yard circle for 30% health and knock them down for 3 sec.
As the abilities hit for a percentage of health, taking off any armor will not speed the process up if you are trading duels with a friend. You will die when you lose a duel but you will not lose durability while dying with the costume on though. To avoid a rez timer, do it inside an instance.
