The Midsummer Fire Festival has arrived! You can check out WoWHead.com’s guide here.
There have been some questions as to how the Fire Festival applies to the Iron Man (and other challenges)… I hope I can address them here.
Festival Bonfires & Other Daily Quests
Ribbon Pole: The XP buff is NOT allowed for any of the challenges we currently have as this is an external buff that you must intentionally initiate.
Bonfire’s Blessing: Yes, this is an external buff and wouldn’t normally be allowed, however, you are unable to cancel the Aura / Buff. You shouldn’t be going up to the bonfire and initiating the buff, however, if you are in a zone where someone else happens to initiate it, then so be it. You will not be flagged, nor should you stop playing your challenger.
