Midsummer Fire Festival
This year, the Midsummer Fire Festival will run from June 21st through July 5th. During this event, players can embrace the hottest season and honor their faction's flames throughout the world, while desecrating the enemy’s bonfires.

Honoring and Desecrating the Flame
Bonfires scattered across Azeroth, Outland, and Draenor can be honored by interacting with the Flame Warden or Flame Keepers in each zone. To Extinguish the opposite faction's bonfire, simply interact with it and complete the quest. Players will be rewarded with Burning Blossom, which is the currency used during this event.

The location of the bonfires can be tracked by installing the Candy Buckets or HandyNotes Midsummer Festival addon.
  • This addon will mark the location of bonfires on your map, and on your minimap when you are close enough.
