This is one holiday that I usually ignore. The middle of my summers are usually pretty busy. However, with the achievement system, I want to try and get them all done to be able to get the holiday meta-achievement at some point in the future.
So, lets take a look at the dangerously HOT summer festival. Make sure you don’t spend too much time around the fire, or you might get burnt.
Okay, burning tree jokes aside, this achievement set is nothing to laugh about.
It requires going to a LOT of places, gathering a lot of items, and even going into cities of the opposite factions and getting flagged for PvP in the process.
Highlights include: Burning Hot Pole Dance, where you light yourself on fire and then dance. (just kidding, but not really).
The meta achievement for this one is The Flame Keeper, with the title “flame keeper” as the reward. I mean, it just seems funny to have a tree with “flame keeper” written over their head. I like the humor of it all.
For guides on how to complete everything, you should see WoW.com’s guide. It seems like a waste for me to go back through it all again, when they have such a handy guide over there. There is also some good (practical) information on the Project Lore website.
Are you guys working towards this summer achievement holiday? Or, are you too busy or just don’t care about the holiday? I’m pretty busy this time of the year (with my sister getting married next weekend), but I’m going to do my best to complete the achievements during what little playtime I have over the next couple weeks. It gives me an interesting goal to work on in-game.
