Midsummer Fire Festival:
In World of Warcraft, we celebrate a World Event called Midsummer Fire Festival. This event coincides with the first day of Summer, alternatively known as the longest day. The Summer Solstice occurs between the 20th and 22nd, June in the Northern Hemisphere.
When Does It Start and Finish?
The Midsummer Fire Festival event is available from the 21st of June 2021 and is accessible to players for two weeks, ending on the 5th of July 2021.
What Can I Do?
The event itself has many daily quests; when completed, you will earn a small amount of gold and some Burning Blossom’s. Burning Blossom is a commodity you can obtain and turn in to a vendor for items of interest. Sadly, as gold-makers, there are only two items that are Bind on Equip (BoE).
Items of Interest:
The Captured Flame is a unique item; this means that you can only have one of these items within your inventory at any one time. To bypass this, you can either place your excess in a Guild Bank or learn them and cage them, the pet will become a Spirit of Summer. The Battle Pet loses its unique tag, thus meaning you can have more than one Spirit of Summer within your inventory.
Valuating My Items:
Once we’ve obtained our Companion Pets, we can use our trusted source, The Undermine Journal (TUJ), to calculate how to get the best bang for our buck. As these are Companion Pets and Bind on Equip (BoE), we can either sell them as they are or cage them and sell them as Battle Pets.
These are the results based on selling them as a Companion Pet using E.U and U.S Median Price via The Undermine Journal. Values correct as of 22/06/21
|Companion Pet||E.U Median||U.S Median|
|Captured Flame||35000g 00s||65000g 00s|
|Blazing Cindercrawler||27500g 00s||36600g 00s|
Alternatively, learning the Companion Pets and caging them into Battle Pets. The valuations below are of a level 1. You could demand an extra 5-10k if you’re willing to level the Battle Pet to level 25. Values correct as of 22/06/21
|Battle Pet||E.U Median||U.S Median|
|Spirit of Summer||12250g 00s||14420g 00s|
|Blazing Cindercrawler||29600g 00s||36500g 00s|
This event is one of the lesser World Events for gold-makers due to the small number of available items to sell. However, if your realm dictates it, you can get a substantial amount of gold for those items. The benefit of Battle Pets is that you can learn them and try another realm if they don’t sell.
