A Pink Elekk is a pink colored and somewhat transparent elekk which is a hallucination, only visible while the player character is either drunk from alcoholic beverages or wearing [Synthebrew Goggles].

Terokkar ForestEdit

Pink elekks are found around Allerian Stronghold and Stonebreaker Hold.

BrewfestEdit

Pink Elekk Side
The side of one.

Pink Elekks are connected with the Brewfest event and were a quest objective of Official alliance mini-icon [70] Pink Elekks On Parade and Official horde mini-icon [70] Pink Elekks On Parade during Brewfest 2007. The quests are in hiatus for Brewfest 2008.

Per these two quest, the pink elekks were visible in the beer garden celebrations outside of most of the major cities: "Visit the beer gardens outside of Stormwind, Darnassus, and the Exodar, zap three elekks at each location" (Alliance) and "Visit the beer gardens outside of Silvermoon, Thunder Bluff, and the Undercity, zap three elekks at each location" (Horde). However, though the quests to "disperse" them have been removed, the pink elekks were not removed and are still visible in their Brewfest 2007 locations just as the Wild Wolpertingers are still around, although the quests to catch them are also in hiatus.

Per the quests, they are "dispersed" with an [Elekk Dispersion Ray] and cannot be engaged normally (otherwise you would not need to use the quest item to disperse them).

InspirationEdit

Seeing pink elekks when you are drunk is a reference to the expression, 'seeing pink elephants', a euphemism for drunken hallucinations. The expression was an inspiration for the Pink Elephants on Parade musical segment in the Disney movie Dumbo wherein the eponymous elephant accidentally gets drunk and hallucinates seeing pink elephants; you might assume that many players will catch the connection to Disney rather than Jack London.
