General Information

The President's Day Quest was a scavenger-based quest, involved traveling the world and finding the zombies of various presidents, killing them, and submitting their corpse. (Living presidents could also be found, but were SIGNIFICANTLY more challenging targets than the zombies of dead presidents) Sometimes, the Presidents had items which could also be submitted - AND/OR given to other presidents to receive other items - OR transport to a whole new sub-zone specific to the President's Day Quest. It also introduced The Debt Star zone. It was a complex and multi-layered quest.

It also introduced a new mob spec: Spec_skittish.
