Midsummer Fire Festival Overview

The main activity during this event will be flying all over Azeroth, finding the Fire Keepers for each zone, and honoring their bonfire by completing a quest that they give, or desecrating the opposing faction's bonfires by dousing them. Both of these activities will reward you with Burning Blossoms, which are used as the event's currency.

The vendors for the event are Midsummer Merchant for Horde players and Midsummer Supplier for Alliance players. You can find them each of the faction's capital cities.

During this event you can also queue through the Dungeon Finder to defeat Ahune the Frost Lord. This will reward you once a day per character with a satchel which contains some Burning Blossoms and also the chance for a couple collectibles.

Achievements

The Flame Keeper / The Flame Warden

The Flame Keeper (Horde) and The Flame Warden (Alliance) are the meta-achievements for the Midsummer Fire Festival World Event. If you complete them you will learn the tiles: Flame Keeper (Name) (Horde) and Flame Warden (Name) (Alliance).

This achievement is a collection of smaller achievements that require you to honor the flames in several locations all over Azeroth.

To complete these achievements we recommend you get the Candy Buckets addon, which adds waypoints on the map.

For this achievement you will first need to acquire the 3 set pieces of the Midsummer set (Mantle, Vestment and Sandals. You don't need the Helm). You can find information on how to obtain them in the Transmog section of this guide.

Once you've collected the set, you will have to find a ribbon pole. They are usually located near the flames of the festival. You can easily find one in the capital cities. Equip the set, click on the ribbon pole, wait 60 seconds and the achievement is yours.

To be able to encounter and defeat Ahune, you just need to queue for the battle using the Dungeon Finder tool in game. There will be a special queue for Ahune the Frost Lord.

For this achievement you will need to "steal" the flame from the opposing faction's capital cities by looting a quest item from them. The location for the flames is listed on the appropiate continent's waypoint tab below, alongside the other flames.

Once you have stolen the flames from all capital cities, you will get the final quest A Thief's Reward (Horde) / A Thief's Reward (Alliance), which will reward you with a Crown of the Fire Festival and the achievement.

This achievement requires you to juggle 40 Juggling Torch in less than 15 seconds. You can buy the torches from the holiday vendor.

The best way to do this achievement is to drag and drop the torches to your action bar. Once they're there, press the corresponding hotkey, and then left click on your character's feet so that you throw the torch on the spot. Spam this 40 times and the achievement will be yours.
