There are a few unmistakable signs of summer -- the days get longer and the sun stays up later, the smell of barbeque drifts around the neighborhood, and oh yeah, the Midsummer Fire Festival starts. June 21, tomorrow, marks the start of the Midsummer Fire Festival in game
, and this year we've heard that there's going to be some new things
going on. In addition to all of the old festivities
(firepole dancing and flame honoring, or desecrating), there are lots of new things to do as well -- Ahune the Frost Lord
is threatening the Slave Pens (he's a boss similar to the popular Headless Horseman
of Hallow's End), and there are new daily quests around, including a "torch tossing" event and a bounty on a Twilight Cult NPC.
Stay tuned to WoW Insider -- we'll have coverage on all of the new stuff in game, as well as fill you in on exactly what's going down when during the Festival. It lasts until July 4th, and right around then there are also lots of terrific fireworks shows ingame as well -- those goblins really know how to put on a good time.
