— Drooburt's Ghost

Drooburt's Ghost is a dead quaggan who has reappeared in Lion's Arch as a part of the Shadow of the Mad King event from 2015 onwards, begging for Pieces of Candy Corn. He is also one of the participants in the race around the Mad King's Labyrinth. Beginning with Wintersday 2017, he has since appeared for every major festival begging for various items (usually food) related to the festival. He became a merchant with the Festival of the Four Winds 2018 release.

After becoming jailed during Super Adventure Box, he was allowed a community service release during Dragon Bash 2019.

In life, Drooburt was found begging for coin outside Martinus's bar in the Town of Prosperity; he was killed when Mordremoth attacked the town, and his corpse can still be found there, tangled in vines.

Dialogue[edit]

During Halloween
Can yoOou spare any candy corn for a quaggan down on quaggan's luck? Quaggan wants to make a new afterlife for quaggan.
Talk give option tango.png
Sure, I can spare 10 candy corn.
(One of the following)
Drooburt's Ghost: Quaggan thanks you for the treats. Are they fish?
Drooburt's Ghost: Thank yooOOOoouuu.
Drooburt's Ghost: Thank you. Quaggan now feels marginally less hungry.
(If not enough Pieces of Candy Corn)
Quaggan doesn't think you have that many candy corn.
Talk end option tango.png
Sorry, I don't have any extra candy corn.
Talk give option tango.png
Here, 100 candy corn will surely help! (Same as above)
Talk give option tango.png
1,000 candy corn will help you create a fresh start. (Same as above)
(if completed a tier of Spectral Hand of the Market)
Talk more option tango.png
You're back to square one, it seems. What happened to your shop, Drooburt?
Hooo. Quaggan has been unjustly victimized by shifting markets and burdensome regulations on the free trade of festival prizes.
Talk more option tango.png
So your shop was too seasonal. Well, I can help a little more I suppose...
Talk end option tango.png
It sounds like you need to work on your business plan.
Talk end option tango.png
Sorry, I don't have any extra candy corn.
During Wintersday
Can yoOou spare any snowflakes for a quaggan down on quaggan's luck? Quaggan wants to make a new afterlife for quaggan.
Talk give option tango.png
Sure, I can spare 10 snowflakes.
(One of the following)
Drooburt's Ghost: Quaggan thanks you for the treats. Are they fish?
Drooburt's Ghost: Thank yooOOOoouuu.
Drooburt's Ghost: Thank you. Quaggan now feels marginally less hungry.
(If not enough Snowflakes)
Quaggan doesn't think you have that many snowflakes.
Talk end option tango.png
Sorry, I don't have any extra snowflakes.
Talk give option tango.png
Here, 100 snowflakes will surely help! (Same as above)
Talk give option tango.png
1,000 snowflakes will help you create a fresh start. (Same as above)
(if completed a tier of New Afterlife for Quaggan)
Talk more option tango.png
I thought I gave you piles of candy corn, Drooburt.
Quaggan remembers your generosity and pleads for your continued support. Quaggan's life after death is as perilous as quaggan's life before death.
Talk more option tango.png
Well, it *is* the season of giving...
Talk end option tango.png
I really don't see how snowflakes are going to help you.
Talk end option tango.png
Sorry, I don't have any snowflakes.
During Lunar New Year
This quaggan seems to be frozen in a block of ice. Perhaps he strayed too close to the Infinirarium in a daring Wintersday heist attempt?
Talk give option tango.png
He must need a little luck. I'll give him a Fine Essence of Luck.
(One of the following)
Drooburt's Ghost: Quaggan thanks you for the treats. Are they fish?
Drooburt's Ghost: Thank yooOOOoouuu.
Drooburt's Ghost: Thank you. Quaggan now feels marginally less hungry.
(If not enough Essence of Luck)
You don't think you have a spare Essence of Luck.
Talk end option tango.png
I guess this quaggan is out of luck this year.
Talk give option tango.png
He must need some good luck. I'll give him a Masterwork Essence of Luck.
Talk give option tango.png
He must need more luck. I'll give him a Rare Essence of Luck.
Talk give option tango.png
He must need a lot of luck. I'll give him a Exotic Essence of Luck.
Talk give option tango.png
He must need incredible luck. I'll give him a Legendary Essence of Luck.
(if completed a tier of The Giving Spirit)
Talk more option tango.png
I gave him a lot of snowflakes, so that's ironic. I wonder what happened.
You don't really know much about Drooburt's afterlife outside of festivals. Clearly his good fortune has run low.
Talk back option tango.png
Maybe charity will bring me good luck this year...
Talk end option tango.png
He'll have to wait for the spring thaw.
Talk end option tango.png
I guess this quaggan is out of luck this year.
During Super Adventure Festival
Can yoOOou spare any Continue Coins for a quaggan down on quaggan's luck? Quaggan is in a bad situation and needs a second chance.
Talk give option tango.png
Sure, I can spare one Continue Coin.
Drooburt's Ghost: Thank yooOOOoouuu.
(If not enough Continue Coins)
Quaggan doesn't think you have that many coins.
Talk end option tango.png
I don't think these coins work the way you seem to think they do.
Talk give option tango.png
Here, 10 Continue Coins will surely help! (Same as above)
Talk give option tango.png
100 Continue Coins should be enough to overcome any tribulation. (Same as above)
Talk give option tango.png
An Infinite Continue Coin will let you beat any toad, wizard, or jail cell. (If an Infinite Continue Coin is in your inventory)
Quaggan feels like it diminishes the sense of triumph if quaggan is able to ignore the penalties of failure. YoOOou can keep your Infinite Continue Coin.
Talk back option tango.png
I guess that's fair. But since I have this, I can spare some normal coins.
Talk end option tango.png
It's not like you have to use it... Fine, suit yourself then.
(if completed a tier of New Year, New Quaggan)
Talk more option tango.png
Despite all that luck, you're still making poor decisions, Drooburt.
Quaggan remembers your generosity and pleads for your continued support. Quaggan's life after death is as perilous as quaggan's life before death.
Talk back option tango.png
Well, I don't really need all of these continues, myself...
Talk end option tango.png
Maybe spending some time here will be positive for you.
Talk end option tango.png
I don't think these coins work the way you seem to think they do.
During Dragon Bash
Can yoOOou spare any zhaitaffy for the deserving citizenry of Rata Sum? Quaggan has been tasked to return with seasonal bounty.
Talk give option tango.png
Here. Take 10 zhaitaffy.
Quaggan thinks the commander is bad at math. You don't have that many zhaitaffy. (If insufficient zhaitaffy)
Talk end option tango.png
Not my problem, bub.
Talk give option tango.png
Take 100 zhaitaffy for your troubles.
Quaggan thinks the commander is bad at math. You don't have that many zhaitaffy. (If insufficient zhaitaffy)
Talk end option tango.png
Not my problem, bub.
Talk give option tango.png
I'm feeling generous. Take 1,000 zhaitaffy.
Quaggan thinks the commander is bad at math. You don't have that many zhaitaffy. (If insufficient zhaitaffy)

Not my problem, bub.
(if completed a tier of Another Hundred Lives)
Talk more option tango.png
How's life after prison?
Quaggan has been allowed to reduce quaggan's sentence through community service. Your generous donation will aid both quaggan and the Arcane Council's holiday cheer.
Talk back option tango.png
I suppose it's for a good cause. I guess.
Talk end option tango.png
I have to go.
Talk end option tango.png
Not my problem, bub.
During Festival of the Four Winds
HelloOOo, customer. Quaggan has exclusive items for sale at reasonable market-based prices. Supplies are restocked daily!
Talk Merchant.png
This is a surprising step up for you, Drooburt. Let's see what you have.
(if completed a tier of Help a Quaggan Out)
Talk more option tango.png
I see you earned your freedom, Drooburt.
Quaggan has done quaggan's time and wishes to turn over a new fin. YoOour patronage will help quaggan avoid slipping into a life of destitution.
Talk Merchant.png
This is a surprising step up for you, Drooburt. Let's see what you have.
Talk end option tango.png
Well, good luck with that.
Talk end option tango.png
No thanks.

Trivia[edit]

  • The version of Drooburt which appears in the Mad King's Labyrinth floats rather than walks; when the race begins, he will "swim" around the maze.
  • Drooburt's earlier misadventures are the subject of Drooburt’s Last Wintersday, a Twine game by Angel McCoy and Tirzah Bauer.[1]
  • Prior to his death, players could donate coins to him; by design, this had no effect.[2]
