Midsummer Fire Festival

Features: Across Azeroth, brilliant bonfires have been lit to signify the hottest months of the year. The chosen Flamekeepers are eager to ensure they continue burning long into the days and nights of the celebration – and they seek the aid of able explorers in doing so. Traverse the land and delve into dangerous dungeons at their behest. You may return hot, sweaty, and a little sooty…but these spiritual guides understand well the need to reward adventurers beyond the promise of “enlightenment.

Ahune, the Frost Lord:One of the main additions to the Fire Festival this year is a new summonable boss. Level 70 players can undertake this questline that takes you to the Slave Pens to seek and defeat Ahune, the Frost Lord. Ahune is a special summonable boss, similar to the Headless Horseman, that is only available during the Fire Festival. Luma Cloudsister, located just inside the Slave Pens, directs your party to where you can find and defeat Ahune – and loot his special rewards. The loot in Heroic mode is more powerful than on normal mode and includes epic items.

Other items new to the festival include Brazier of Dancing Flames

, and Sandals of Summer.
