Things are heating up across Azeroth which can mean only one thing! Summer has hit. There are lots of things to do now and coming up soon! Let’s take a look.


Return of the Guardian


Qiraji Guardling pet

The Qiraji Guardians have once again made their way back to Azeroth. These special pets show up every summer before migrating in the fall This means you have from June 21st – September 23rd to cage your own guardling. They are usually level 16 – 17 and are found around the entrance to Ahn’Qiraj. It’s part of the World Safari achievement for the Zookeeper title!  You can learn more about this pet by visiting Warcraft Pets.


Midsummer Fire Festival


Banner and tent from Midsummer Fire Festival The yearly Midsummer Fire Festival has returned until July 5th.  The bonfires have once again been lit across the land to “rekindle peoples spirit.”  We are asked to honor these fires and extinguish our enemies bonfires. There are pets, toys. and other goodies to purchase with the burning blossoms you earn at each flame, doing daily quests, or killing Ahune. There are also many achievements you can get which are needed for What A Long, Strange Trip It’s Been. You will need 410 Burning Blossoms to complete all achievements needed to complete the holiday.

Honoring and desecrating fires will require you to travel to bonfires all across Azeroth but you can earn 935 as Alliance or 945 as Horde just from bonfires alone. Dailies and Ahune will add to that. Fires are located in Eastern Kingdoms, Kalimdor, Outland, Northrend, Vashj’ir, Deepholme, and Pandaria. As you can see, you will be doing a lot of traveling!
