Let the warmth flow through you

Across Azeroth and Outland, brilliant bonfires have been lit to rekindle peoples’ spirits and ward off ancient evils. Each year, new guardians are chosen to watch over the sacred flames and ensure that they are never extinguished.

Called "flamekeepers," these chosen few request the aid of brave adventurers to traverse the land and journey into the dark recesses of Azeroth's dungeons. It is rumoured that any heroes who are willing to brave the terrors placed before them will be rewarded for their efforts through the power of the flames.

The festivities have begun as the citizens of Azeroth and Outland celebrate the hottest of seasons by playing with fire all across their worlds! The fire festival is one of the most PvP-heavy events in the land, so strap into your gladiator gear and get ready to desecrate or defend the Midsummer bonfires from your enemies!


Seasonal Boss: Ahune

Use the Dungeon Finder to do battle with Ahune, the Frost Lord. Ahune can only be confronted during the Fire Festival. Once Ahune is defeated, you'll be able to loot his Satchel of Chilled Goods and loot a powerful cloak for high-level players.

Burning Blossom

Visiting the various bonfires located through the world and completing quests will reward you with Burning Blossoms, which can be redeemed for various foods, festive clothing or even fun toys!

Snuffing Out The Flames

Members of the Horde and Alliance can visit the bonfires of the opposing faction and snuff them out, depriving their enemies of the blessings of the fire spirits! Take care, because each side will defend its own flames.

By Fire Be Blessed

Touching any bonfire will cleanse an individual of nearly all ailments. Toss Burning Blossoms into the fire, and the resulting flare will bless you with a temporary but useful buff!

Daily Quests

Several Daily Quests are available during this event, and you'll need to catch 10 torches in a row, win a torch tossing game, or slay enemies of the Fire to complete them. Speak with the Master Fire Juggler near your capital's bonfire in order to juggle flaming torches!


Dancing Around the Ribbon Pole

At every festival camp, one of these traditional decorations stands tall beside the bonfire. Take up one of the multi-colored ribbons and dance around the pole with your friends and fellow celebrants!

Fire in the Sky

The lengthy Midsummer Fire Festival traditionally ends with the sky itself being set alight. The goblins of Undermine have lent their considerable skill (and copious amounts of gunpowder) to the task, resulting in a tremendous fireworks show!

Merchants & Vendors

These party profiteers will trade Burning Blossoms for food, festive clothes, a pet, and more!

By participating in Midsummer festivities, you can earn special gifts and goodies.


Frigid Frostling

A frost elemental pet you can find in a Satchel of Chilled Goods, upon defeating Ahune.

Spirit of Summer

The spell to summon this wisp companion is taught by a Captured Flame, which can be bought for 350 Burning Blossoms from Midsummer Merchants.

Costumes and Fun Items

Through your participation in festival quests, you'll collect Burning Blossoms, a special holiday currency you’ll spend to purchase various items available from Midsummer suppliers and merchants, such as the Mantle of the Fire Festival, the Vestment of Summer or the Sandals of Summer.


Toys available from event vendors include the Brazier of Dancing Flames and the Handful of Summer Petals.


A number of seasonal dishes can be bought or found; many of them offer buffs to the Azerothian gourmet. Examples include: Fiery Festival Brew, Elderberry Pie, Midsummer Sausage, Toasted Smorc, Fire-Toasted Bun, Bag of Smorc Ingredients, and Lord of Frost's Private Label .

If you complete the achievements below, your character will gain the title of Flame Warden (Alliance) or Flame Keeper (Horde).
