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.

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.

Notes[edit]

  • The portrait of Drooburt's Ghost displays a corporeal form instead of the ghostly one.
  • He can usually be found by the wagon in Trader's Forum, but may sometimes be taken away by Mad King Thorn and have to waddle back.

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]
