Midsummer is here, with it some achievements to go grind and some fires to visit for really easy gold or XP.
It is also the traditionally slack summer season, where droves of people go on holiday. Our guild is currently experiencing the great tank drought of 2009 as it has been named. When a tank goes on holiday their absence is keenly felt.
Something must be done! If you dance around a Ribbon Pole during the Fire Festival for 60 seconds, you get the Ribbon Dance buff which increases XP for killing monsters by 10%. This combined with a tasty heirloom item means a lot faster levelling. The poles are scattered around all over the place, so they are usually close to any zone.
Additionally, visiting a fire and honouring it yields 3200 XP (at level 50), which given you just fly around and run a little way to each fire, is pretty much free XP if you can spare the time.
So for the next couple of weeks, when raids are inevitable cancelled, I'll be running around with my Druid making the most of the free XP boosts.
