"Fire Spirit Pet"

So the fire spirit pet is now a "token" pet instead of a instance reward? If so i'll need to get my fire blosom fast.--Flodarien (talk) 12:28, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

Do these quests give any sort of rep? I've done both of the Eastern Kingdoms quests, but haven't received any rep so far. Andostre 07:21, 1 July 2007 (UTC)

Sorry, late with this post here, but I thought I would answer anyway. You do not get reputation for Honoring or desecrating the flames. What you do get is a lot of XP (on average, the 5 toons I ran through the achievement required fires leveled up 5 times) and a whole lot of PvP fun!!! Okay, some may not like PvP; I like it in moderation....but it is still a lot of fun to run around getting flagged, and getting pummelled by a level 80 Death Knight!! Mostly, it is good if you are a pet collecter (vanity, not Hunter) and if you are active in completing achievements. --Zanderlane (talk) 17:03, 9 July 2009 (UTC)


Since this annual event has been overhauled this time around, what is supposed to be done with this page? --Adorol (talk) 21:54, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Revamp the page :) I'm compiling a list of coordinates if anyone would like to contribute: User:Niightblade/Midsummer

Ragnaros Alive?

So with the thing the Festival Scorchlings do when you give them incense, it seems to me that shows that, lore-wise, Ragnaros is still alive and active. What with the event at the Dragonmaw Base Camp confirming that Nefarion is dead in story, doesn't that mean that Molten Core is also canonically in the past? If so, Ragnaros is now alive in story.


Ilmyrn 16:34, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

The way I've alway viewed the elemental lords in battle on Azeroth is that whenever they are defeated they are banished back to their own plane of existance. So techincally you couldn't truely defeat them unless you went to the elemental plane and destroyed their true forms.

Just because Molten Core comes before BWL progression-wise doesn't mean that Nefarian being dead lore-wise automatically means Ragnaros is dead. -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 12:30, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

Just use the list of Niight above it's in clean nice format...
Assuming you mean this list: Sortable_list_of_bonfires

suggest this section be removed from discussion (not the list on the main page, of course) but am loathe to do so :) ;>jamvaru (talk) 14:36, 30 June 2011 (UTC)

"Revamp" Suggestion

The old information should be removed and a note should be made stating the changes. Or at least put the old information under an "Outdated" section.

Bonfire lists

With splitting up the Horde Bonfire and Alliance Bonfire into separate pages, it makes finding the fires difficult since those included directions. I prefer directions to a small map so I know where I'm going - and now I have to go to two different pages to find that information. I suggest having the directions put into the sortable chart or the horde and alliance bonfire pages combined.  DiscordktDiscordKTTalkContrib 17:54, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

I STRONGLY preferred the system where we had listed both alliance and horde bonfires in one list. Players (or at least I) use them both at the same time. I was very disappointed to not see [Area] - [Bonfires (of both sides)] on the page. So much so that I bothered to figure out my old account just to complain about it. DeathFlame131 (talk) 23:51, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

Eh, I guess being able to sort by area works too. Still, I liked having the continent breakdowns and stuff. Made it easier to find the areas you were in close proximity to. DeathFlame131 (talk) 23:51, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

Agreed, this was a serious misfeature. What's wrong with keeping both lists up? In any case, using this revision of the page works: [1] Wisnij (talk) 02:23, 23 June 2008 (UTC)

The current default sort provides us with the exact same view of things that we liked, it just isn't quite as clear as it was when it was laid out in plaintext. DeathFlame131 (talk) 22:50, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

Are the locations outdated for 2009? I'm at the location that's supposed to be tirisfal Glades' fire, and there's nothing here.--ClemSnide (talk) 22:37, 22 June 2009 (UTC)

The bonfire locations haven't changed between last year and this. Snake.gifSssssssssssssssssssssssss Coobra sig3.gifFor Pony! (Sssss/Slithered) 01:07, 23 June 2009 (UTC)
My bad. I was on the quest chain that requires you to go to Orgrimmar and the Undercity, A [74] A Royal Coup et. al., and I was in a "phased" state at the time. A GM was kind enough to explain that to me.--ClemSnide (talk) 00:46, 24 June 2009 (UTC)

I've started working on some of the Co-ords for the 2011 holiday but I wont be updating them all, only the ones that are FAR from their original location. Is anyone else working on this project? Ameliaw90 (talk) 08:41, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

Getting to Bonfires

Note that at the Ogrimmar bonfire it is impossible to complete the desecration quest at Level 4 (and yes, I did test this on an alt!) before the guards arrive and kill you. --Tequima (talk) 11:42, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

20 per Day?

It says that you can get 20 through dailies but torch tossing and torch throwing only give 5 blossoms per day? 20 is wrong someone should change it or otherwise tell me where the other 10 blossoms daily come from -- D558 (talk) 03:15, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

Striking Back. Guess it should be noted though... that last one for level 67s seems to cut off after level 70 or so, leaving level 80 players unable to do it. Snake.gifSssssssssssssssssssssssss Coobra sig3.gifFor Pony! (Sssss/Slithered) 04:10, 23 June 2009 (UTC)
Yea so do level 80 players get 10 less blossoms? cause the Ahune stuff only gives you blossoms for the first run... -- D558 (talk) 04:23, 23 June 2009 (UTC)
Seems so. Snake.gifSssssssssssssssssssssssss Coobra sig3.gifFor Pony! (Sssss/Slithered) 04:55, 23 June 2009 (UTC)
Enable low level quest tracking and try again. Does this work? I can't try myself. -- Xeros84 (talk)

As I noted on the page itself, this has been addressed: the quest was extended from 67-70 to 67-80 with the hotfix. There may be individual realms which still have problems with it, but I myself have done the striking back quest with my level 80 toon. If you have problems with it (and yeah, do turn on 'low level quest tracking'), do report it so the support folks have one more note that it isn't working yet. --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 17:00, 25 June 2009 (UTC)

A Thief's Reward

I am going to assume that some things have changed this year. I have been running the Midsummer on two of my toons so far, and both of them have recieved the Achievement "King of the Fire Festival". Both of them recieved the quest after turning in the flames from the four Alliance Cities; both of the toons are UNDER level 50. My Rogue turned in at level 45, and leveled to 46 by completing the quest; My Paladin is currently level 43 and turned his in not too long ago. I haven't seen any updates about this, so I thought I would mention it.--Zanderlane (talk) 07:27, 25 June 2009 (UTC)

I have done the event on 3 toons now. My Hunter, level 47 after doing the Northrend zone run, was level 45 at turn in. The quest "A Thief's Reward" is not restricted to players' over 50. --Zanderlane (talk) 13:06, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

Not that it matters, because I noticed that there was a few updates done, but I completed "A Thief's Reward" on my Shaman who leveled to 37 while turning in. Glad we got this confirmed! --Zanderlane (talk) 05:31, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

My Alliance toon is level 44 and stole the Undercity flame, so yeah I experienced that too.
(not Zanderlane...don't know who ^^ this ^^ was....I run on Horde toons...and I sign my posts --Zanderlane (talk) 15:15, 2 July 2009 (UTC))

It would be nice to, for instance, take a level 10 toon in for research purposes. There would have to be an awful lot of guarding going on, as he'd draw guards from halfway across the zone. --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 23:26, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

After I finish with my Priest, if there is time, I will run my level 11 Rogue through the Ally Cities and report my findings for you! --Zanderlane (talk) 15:14, 2 July 2009 (UTC)
I ran my level 7 toon in, and completed the undercity flame quest. Based on this, I expect that *at least* the flame quests can be done at any level. Doing them on a level 1 would require a lot of shenanigans, such as a group to kill off guards, and a warlock to summon the level 1 in - so he doesn't level up simply from running from city to city. While this doesn't say anything about Thief's Reward, I would guess that it, too, is not level limited --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 16:35, 2 July 2009 (UTC)


Fire Blossoms:

I ran Midsummer on a new account (I....forgot my old account information. Nothing like losing all of that previous work...) so I am not exactly sure of the answer to this question.

Fire Blossoms I store in my bank will be usable next year, right?

--Zanderlane (talk) 15:09, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

Fire Blossoms are real-time limited, not account-time limited. They will not be useable next year. I recommend you spend them for the non-limited items (clothes, pet,  [Brazier of Dancing Flames]). --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 16:38, 2 July 2009 (UTC)
Thanks! Guess I will grab a few pieces of the clothing then. I have the Captured Flame on the toons, but I didn't feel like running them all through the Northrend areas to collect the flames to get the pole dance finished this year. I do not mind running the zones on lower level toons to do an achievement, but since I already will not be able to run the instance to complete the Midsummer event, I will just wait until next year when I am at the right level for Northrend.--Zanderlane (talk) 00:32, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

The blossoms will indeed fade out after 14 (realtime) days, but other things may not. I have several  [Fiery Festival Brew] stored from last year; the timer is down to 0 seconds but the things are still there. And I have some Brewfest tokens left over, too!--ClemSnide (talk) 01:47, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

Good job!

Props to Bliz and WoW team for comin up with a winner of a '4th' festival that everyone can understand and participate in. perhaps only to get a baloon, but hay! good stuff :) I want a fishing rod, fly style, that is as long as the balloon is high. sorry if this type of 'discu' is not to your liking (lemme know; it seems lacking here on wowpedia) ;>jamvaru (talk) 14:30, 30 June 2011 (UTC)

Bad job

Man, I thought they meant 'through' the 5th, not 'to' the 5th, as in 12:00:00 am, and my blossoms are gone... all 14 of em... waaah! ;>jamvaru (talk) 18:29, 6 July 2011 (UTC)

It's cause the discussion pages are meant for discussing changes to the article, this is not a forum. Snake.gifSssssssssssssssssssssssss Coobra sig3.gifFor Pony! (Sssss/Slithered) 20:19, 6 July 2011 (UTC)
I see that. However, allowing more 'talk' is beneficial to the free flow of thought and content. Auto-deleting casual talk is counterproductive, a waste of time, and rather annoying. The lack of 'comments', ala wowhead, is a rather glaring deficiency in wiki's generally. Oh, well. It seems a new type of website is needed, or perhaps a reimagining of forums,wikis,blogs, etc.
re: firefestival... only one complaint... torch tossing. This was so rediculous i almost tossed my cookies! (j/k) It didn't inspire me to continue with the festival experience, and in fact, i did not. Similar to the way the wiki etiquette does not inspire me to continue, and ... i probably wont. Though i may try for soemthing different, which is ok. Wikipedia is what it is, as wowhead is a good compliment to it, or vice-versa. ;>jamvaru (talk) 01:55, 7 July 2011 (UTC)
We aren't Blizzard. Giving us your feedback on the event is useless, since the people who are in a position to do anything about it won't see it. -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 01:57, 7 July 2011 (UTC)
