Lord Ahune, the Frost Lord, hates fire. We, however, love fire! We're celebrating fire for two weeks, and this party pooper needs to go. The great Kinaesthesia, who created the excellent Marrowgar hard mode and Lich King tutorial videos for WoW.com, has made an excellent video guiding players thr...

When I read through the forums, I see numerous threads lamenting over the lack of world PvP. The Burning Crusade added a handful of PvP objectives that often go unnoticed and the towers in the Eastern Plaguelands seem pretty lonely since everyone moved on to Outland. Since the beginning of the Midsu...

We love to give here at WoW Insider. We're just givers. We provided a guide to the Midsummer Fire Festival, including a level guide, instructions on how to steal the opposite faction's fire, a walkthrough and a loot table for conquering Lord Ahune, and a guide to most of the other festival quests. N...

Like Bigfoot, it's so elusive that photographs are rare, but some WoW players have caught a glimpse of what may be an upcoming PvP reward from Wrath. Or maybe it's just a bug. Or -- and I have a nickel bet on this one -- it's a nice little prank Blizzard's playing on us in return for our snooping ar...

The Midsummer Fire Festival is represented relatively equally in all capital cities, so you don't need to worry about the entire Azerothian population being packed into Ironforge and Orgrimmar. Below is a list of where, exactly, the festivities are in each of the capital cities. Alliance Stormw...

Like Halloween's Headless Horseman, the Midsummer Fire Festival's summonable boss Lord Ahune offers a nice selection of epic loot, as well as some really fun vanity/joke loot to keep the mood light. Most of the epic drops from the Frost Lord are duplicates of old Badge of Justice loot to help save y...

Well, except for those torch quests, which seem to be tripping a lot of people up. Like any good summertime tourist, Stryper of <Destruction> on Moonrunner always brings his camera with him. This time, he's caught a Festival Scorchling outside of Booty Bay as he begins to change form into Ra...

Torch Catching is the quest that becomes available to you once you've completed Torch Tossing. You can get it in the same place as the quest that came before it, in any capital city of your faction. This quest can seem really hard at first, but there's a trick to it. You should try the quest on you...

Not all is fun and games at the Midsummer Fire Festival this year. A number of concerned members of the Earthen Ring are looking to the Horde and the Alliance to look into some suspicious activity. It seems that the Twilight's Hammer have moved into a new location in the Zoram Strand of Ashenvale, ...

While not the fastest way to earn Burning Blossoms, stealing the opposing faction's flames is the most fun way to do it, I think. How do you steal the enemy's flame, you ask? Easy! Run into the heart of their capital city and click on their bonfire. Okay, maybe that isn't very easy, but knowing whe...

As I am sure you all know by now, whether it be through WoW Insider or logging into the game and seeing it firsthand, the Midsummer Fire Festival went live this morning (June 21st) and will remain so until July 4th. The holiday has received a full revamp since last year, and has quite a few new rew...

Incense for the Summer Scorchlings' Horde equivalent is Incense for the Festival Scorchlings. I arbitrarily decided Summer sounds better than Festival, so that is what I've used as this guide's title. This quest is about as straightforward as quests can get. The first step is to head over to a capi...

The quickest, easiest way to make gold and Burning Blossoms in the Midsummer Fire Festival is to tour the worlds, stopping at each of the flames and bonfires, both Horde and Alliance. There are many of these locations, both on Azeroth and Draenor. Honoring a flame of the same faction nets you 5 gol...
