The Midsummer Fire Festival is back… this year we have a new toy, a new pet and more bonfires added to Draenor and the Broken Isles. The world event runs from June 21 to July 5, exactly the same as last year. You can find all the information you need on the event overall here at this wowhead guide: http://www.wowhead.com/midsummer-fire-festival-2017-guide.
There are no changes from what we said about the event last year.
Festival Bonfires & Daily Quests
We are still uncertain if dousing the flame will count as a kill. Try it on a non-pacifist character first. From what we can tell, dousing the flame will not count as a kill this year.
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. Pacifists BEWARE: You will be credited with a kill if the buff kills a mob that is attacking you. Tread carefully!
