Midsummer Fire Festival 2017

An afternoon is all it took to collect the 850 burning blossoms required for the new pet and the new toy.

Our hunters honored and desecrated the fires of Legion, Draenor, Northrend and Outland in order to collect the first 500 burning blossoms. We were short of 20, so we had to go to Hyjal and Twilight Highlands. Finally, we could go to Orgrimmar and buy the set of matches.

That’s the official version of what happened. Another version, however, is that Gamrok is so hot, he caught fire…

Our druids did almost the same tour to collect the remaining 350 burning blossoms, but they didn’t have to go further than Grizzly Hills, they had enough to buy the Igneous Flameling.

Yes, we made all our screenshots in the snow. Today was actually the first day that we could play World of Warcraft after almost 10 days of heatwave. It was still very hot, but it felt so good to play again. Our only wish is that we could have rolled ourselves in the snow of Frostire Ridge.

    Oh, you ARE back to Orcs! My first Orcs to follow then, what an honor πŸ˜‰ :p

    One afternoon!? You sure have been efficient. Congrats on the new items – The matches sure look worth it and very fitting for Gamrok! What is the cooldown?

    It’s been hot here too for some weeks but cooler these days, I’m trying to remember to cherish that.

    Rolling in the snow in game should totally be a spell and thing in game!

    Haha, don’t say to everyone that you’re friend with a couple of Orcs (who call themselves The Brutes), it may scare the people off πŸ˜‰
    The matches have a 30 minutes cooldown. It makes you run in flames for a few seconds. So, it’s a pretty long CD for a short effect. But it’s fun anyway…
    Yeah, let’s hint Blizzard about creating a toy that would have us making snow angels πŸ˜‰

    Aha, ok, I see. Darn those long cooldowns, what is so gamebreaking about running around in flames every 1 minute!? Ok, maybe that would be overdoing it…

    Snow angel toy, brilliant idea – Will suggest it through the in game Suggestion ticket system! πŸ™‚

    Yeah, I can easily see why 30 minutes CD πŸ™‚
    I’ll do the same! I’ll submit the ticket next time I log πŸ˜€

    Grats on getting the toy and pets – impressive that it was done so quickly! I wish I had more patience, but will probably put it off until next year… ^^

    Hello Bryssa and thank you for your comment πŸ˜‰

    We toured the expansions instead of the old continents, the zones are closer to each other, which reduces greatly the traveling time.

    Normally, We wouldn’t hurry to complete this world event, but we were afraid that the heatwave would come back and keep us again from gaming… There are still so many things we haven’t seen yet from 7.2.5. I hope that temperatures won’t go up for a few weeks now…

    Awesome πŸ™‚ Maybe they will actually take the idea, they always look to add more toys to an event, to keep those busy that farmed them all already! Fingers crossed πŸ™‚
