The WoW Challenges Podcast keeps the World of Warcraft Community up to date with news and information covering all Challenges: Iron, Blood Thirsty, Pacifist, Tin, Green and Teams! The podcast records live on Saturday nights at 7pm Eastern at Twitch.tv/WoWChallenges. Questions can be directed to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here we are a year later and we’re back into the Midsummer Fire Festival. The world event will run from June 21 to July 5. According to WoWHead’s event guide there were no new additions this year. This sort of makes sense as Legion is likely commanding all hands on deck by this point.
As such, there are no changes from what we said about the event last year.
Festival Bonfires & Daily Quests Irons: ALLOWED.
Pacifists: We are still uncertain if dousing the flame will count as a kill. Try it on a non-pacifist character first.
Blood Thirsty: Allowed, however, these do count against your quest totals, so take care to not accidentally flag yourself as there is no going back.
Ribbon Pole: The XP buff you get from doing the ribbon pole dance is NOT allowed.
Bonfire’s Blessing: Typically this would not be allowed, however, you are unable to right-click / remove the buff so there is not much that can be done. Basically don’t go out there intentionally reigniting the bonfire to give you that buff… if you get it because someone else did it, fine.
Belated congratulations to Sepa for hitting Level 100 on his Gnome Rogue! Sepa is our 17th green-flagged character to hit max level on June 2nd 11:59:23pm Pacific. His level 10 to 100 playing time (not /played) was 57 days, 22 hours, 4 minutes, 21 seconds. Sepa is only the second Rogue and first Gnome to complete the Iron Man challenge this expansion.
I had congratulated him on the forums and twitter but apparently I did not do it as a blog post here (which I customarily do)… completely my fault!
Congratulations again and good luck on your future challengers!
