Great work Pale :)

Here's a little note I found intresting on The Immortal title... how much would a slot in that fight go for you think...

From MMO-Champion :

- The Immortal, can be done by killing KT w/ out dying (if you have not be present for any other bosses in that reset)

Correct. If you do not die on any other bosses and get to Kel'thuzad, you could (conceivably) sell slots and bring in random people for Kel'thuzad and (assuming nobody dies), they would get the achievement.

To elaborate on this, the raid ID is what controls The Immortal and The Undying achievements. If anyone dies on a boss encounter on that raid ID, the achievement is invalidated until the next reset. It doesn't matter if the characters are the same throughout.

It's confirmed. Just starting Brew of the Month this October counts as a requirement for the Brewmaster title now.

Hot damn, I'm gonna get that violet proto-drake this year after all.

New Guide - Frost Bitten and Bloody Rare - Stolen from : http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/threa ... 7256&sid=1


Bloody Rare

Helpful macro!

/tar Fulgor
/tar Mekt
/tar Vorak
/tar Martic
/tar Bog Lurk
/tar Coilfang Em
/tar Crip
/tar Doomsay
/tar Okrek
/tar Goretoo
/tar Voidhunt
/tar Morc
/tar Hema
/tar Speak
/tar Nura
/tar Ever-Core
/tar Chief Engineer L
/tar Collid
/tar Kraat
/tar Ambassador J

-For the most part he majority of these rare spawns are on a 8-12 hour spawn timer (correct me if I'm wrong!) some may be a little more than that, such as Mekthorg the Wild, which I've read has somewhere around a 24-48 hour spawn timer.
-All rare spawns have between 8k and 14k health. None are elites.

Hellfire http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v477/ ... llfire.jpg
-Note: This is a heavily quested zone so these rare spawns might be some what of a ****block for some people. You may have to stay up late to find it unless you get lucky :(

-Fulgorge- Giant crustburster!!! Can be difficult to find because he's underground, so your target macro will not work. His crustburster trail is 3 times the width and height of other crustburster trails.

-Mekthorg the Wild- Orc in a robe and sword that walks around. I found him up by the northern wall, though he'll spawn on the Path of Glory and outside of Zeth'gor as well.

-Vorakem Doomspeaker- Looks like a Wrath Lord



Zangarmarsh http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v477/ ... zanger.png

-Coilfang Emissary- Orange naga caster that likes to hang out under tents. In my opinion one of the easier rares to find.

-Marticar- Giant albino fenstrider, can be difficult to find as he stands out easily and is usually killed very quickly.

-Bog Lurker- Looks like a mini Loatheb



Terokkar Forest http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v477/ ... rokkar.jpg

-Doomsayer Jurim- Looks like a draenei guard, unless you find him soon after he spawns there's a good chance npcs will get him.

-Crippler- Risen Construct in shadowform, can spawn all around the bonewastes and Auchindown.

-Okrek- Basic caster Arrakoa, can be difficult to find as it can patrol any of the huts in the Arrakoa areas (except Skettis) and is usually killed quickly.



Shadowmoon http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v477/ ... mapsmv.jpg
-Note: If you have a Blessed Medallion of Karabor it comes in real handy here!

-Kraator- Fire Infernal giant, stands out therefor it is killed quickly.

-Ambassador Jerrikar- Red Satyr

-Collidus the Warp-Watcher- Red Eye of the Beholder, or my favorite Willy look-a-like!



Nagrand http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v477/ ... agrand.png

-Voidhunter Yar- Looks exactly like the other voidhunter around Oshu'gun. He paths counter-clockwise

-Goretooth- Typical Crocodile skin, hidden underwater so fly close to the surfice while you spam your macro



Blade's Edge http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v477/ ... mapbem.jpg
Note: I've seen Morcrush and Speaker Margrom mere minutes from eachother so I'm sure they don't share a spawn timer!

-Morcrush- Looks like a Crazed Colossus from Shadowmoon valley, spawns adds as you lower his health.

-Hemathion- Black dragon, imo the easiest of the rares to find, as only 70+ can get to him. Paths south of Ogrila.

-Speaker Margrom- Intelligent Ogre with a orange tunic and Staff of Dominance! He has good taste :)



Netherstorm http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v477/ ... nether.jpg

-Nuramoc- Neon blue and purple Chimaera, a hunter favorite. If you see a hunter taming him, be nice and stay away!

-Ever-Core the Punisher- Mini Curator, paths Manaforge Ultris counter-clockwise.

-Chief Engineer Lorthander- Only blood elf you'll ever see wielding a Keyblade!! /envy....when he spawns at Manaforge Ara he always spawns IN the cave!

Noble Gardener

Complete all the achievements listed. It rewards the title ‘the Noble’.

1. Speak with a <Race> Commoner in one of the major cities. Get the quest “Spring Collectors(Alliance)" or "Spring Gatherers(Horde)".
2. Travel to any of the starter zone newbie towns like Goldshire, Kharanos, Brill, Razor Hill ect. Turn in “Spring Collectors(Alliance)” or "Spring Gatherers(Horde)".
3. Get “The Great Egg Hunt” and “A Tisket, A Tasket, A Noblegarden Basket”.
4. Equip your Noblegarden Basket and use it while egg hunting (see next steps) as often as you can to speed things up.
5. Brightly Colored Eggs can be found in any of the starter zone newbie towns. There will always be a set amount of eggs spawned no matter how many people are looking for them. You will find them on lamp posts, under tables, in crates, behind walls, near trees, in bushes, on vases, in water troughs ect. You will not find them inside houses or buildings. If you leave the town (ie your mini map doesn't say you're in Goldshire anymore) then you won't find eggs.
6. Use the Brightly Colored Eggs to loot a Noblegarden egg. This will complete I Found One!
7. Open the egg to get what’s inside. 90% of the time you’re going to get chocolate but you also have a chance at getting a White Tuxedo Shirt, Black Tuxedo Pants, an Elegant Dress, Spring Flowers, a Spring Rabbit pet, Spring Robes, or a Blossoming Branch.
8. Loot eggs until you complete your quests and turn them in. (Don’t forget to re-equip your new basket.)
9. Continue to loot eggs until you have at least 105 Chocolates, 1 spring flowers, a blossoming branch, a tux shirt, a pair of tux pants, 1 robes, 1 rabbit and a dress. You can purchase the Spring Rabbit and the Spring Robes from a Noblegarden vendor but you will need to gather more chocolates for currency. Some of these items, like the flowers and branch you will get from completing the quests.
10. Eat 100 chocolates to complete Chocoholic.
11. Visit the Noblegarden Vendor and purchase a Noblegarden Egg and, if necessary, a Rabbit, and Robes. (Note that purchasing the Dress or Tux will not count towards the achievement. You must loot those from eggs.)
12. Dressed for the Occasion and Sunday's Finest should now be complete. If not, well, you have more eggs to find. (Note that these two achievements are not currently part of the meta! PTR subject to change.)
13. Equip your Tux shirt, Tux pants and Elegant dress. (Yes, you can wear all three at once). As you travel for the next steps, look around for people dressed like you and /kiss them to complete Blushing Bride.
14. Also while you travel, look for female characters of each race who are level 18+ and use your Spring Flowers on them to complete Shake Your Bunny-Maker. Dalaran will be your best option for finding females of the opposite faction.

Alliance

1. I recommend starting in Exodar. Travel to Azure Watch and bring out your Spring Rabbit. Hang out until somebody else with a Spring Rabbit comes along for yours to…uh... ‘play’ with.
2. Travel to Darnassus and from there to Dolanaar. Bring out your Spring Rabbit and wait until you have the achievement credit.
3. Go to Auberdine and take the boat to Stormwind. Use your Noblegarden Egg while in the city to complete Noble Garden. (You can loot it after you put it down if you want).
4. Go down to Goldshire. Bring out your Spring Rabbit again and wait.
5. Fly to Ironforge and then travel to Kharanos. Bring out your Spring Rabbit and you know the drill. This should complete Spring Fling.
6. Travel to the Badlands and equip your Spring Robes. Use them to plant a flower. (Remember to change back into your dress if you don’t have Blushing Bride yet.)
7. Fly to Menethil Harbor and take the boat to Theramore then fly to Tanaris.
8. Travel to Tanaris and plant a flower.
9. Travel to Thousand Needles to plant another flower.
10. Travel to Un’goro. Bring a friend or find a friend with a Blossoming branch who is willing to party with you. Go to the Hot Springs in western Un’Goro and use your Blossoming branches on each other to get turned into rabbits. Hold still for a bit and you will lay an egg for the Hard Boiled achievement. Alternatively, you can make teh epic bunneh trek. ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8uNyQ7wDSE0 )
11. Travel to Silithus and plant a flower.
12. Fly to Desolace and plant your last flower for Desert Rose.

Midsummer Fire Festival Guide

The Fires of Azeroth

This is actually a meta-within-a-meta achievement as it encompasses Flame Keeper of the Eastern Kingdoms, Flame Keeper of Kalimdor, and Flame Keeper of Outland. It requires a lot of legwork and travel time, but should be easily doable for any 60+ character with a full set of flight paths. If you don't have a full set of flight paths, well, now would be a great time to get them; most fires are within a few seconds' walk of a flightmaster. For all new players, in order to "honor" or "desecrate" a fire, all you need to do is right-click on it.

Big thanks are due here to Wowwiki, which very helpfully had a set of coordinates for each fire. The sites for honoring flames aren't the same for the Alliance and the Horde, so I've split them up for separate notation below (but -- as you'll note from the achievement following this one -- you still need to know about the other factions' fires in order to complete Flame Keeper):

Alliance -- Flame Keeper of the Eastern Kingdoms: There are 14 Alliance fires in the Eastern kingdoms, located in:

Arathi Highlands -- Refuge Point at 50,44

Redridge Mountains -- Lakeshire at 26,60

Stranglethorn Vale -- Booty Bay at 33,74

The Hinterlands -- Aerie Peak at 14,50

Wetlands -- Menethil Harbor at 13,47

Western Plaguelands -- Chillwind Camp at 43,82

Westfall --Sentinel Hill at 55,52

Alliance -- Flame Keeper of Kalimdor: There are 11 Alliance fires in Kalimdor, located in:

Netherstorm -- Area 52 at 31,62

Shadowmoon Valley -- Wildhammer Stronghold at 40,54

Terokkar Forest -- Allerian Stronghold at 54,56

Zangarmarsh -- Telredor at 69,52

Horde -- Flame Keeper of the Eastern Kingdoms: There are 11 Horde fires in the Eastern Kingdoms, located in:

Arathi Highlands -- Hammerfall at 73,41

Badlands -- Kargath at 4,50

Burning Steppes -- Flaming Crest at 61,30

Eversong Woods -- Falconwing Square at 46,50

Ghostlands -- Tranquillien at 47,26

Hillsbrad Foothills -- Tarren Mill at 58,25

Silverpine Forest -- The Sepulcher at 50,39

Stranglethorn Vale -- Booty Bay at 33,74

Swamp of Sorrows -- Stonard at 46,45

The Hinterlands -- Revantusk Village at 76,74

Tirisfal Glades -- Brill at 57,52

Horde -- Flame Keeper of Kalimdor: There are 12 Horde fires in Kalimdor, located in:

Ashenvale -- Splintertree Post at 69,69

Shadowmoon Valley - Shadowmoon Village at 33,31

Terokkar Forest -- Stonebreaker Hold at 52,43

Zangarmarsh -- Zabra'jin at 36,52

Desecration of the Alliance or Desecration of the Horde

See all those fires I just listed above? Namely, the ones that don't belong to your faction? You get to visit them anyway! Again, this is a lot of legwork, but for most zones you should be able to honor your faction's fire and desecrate the opposing faction's, then simply move on the next zone.

Please note that even on a PvE server you will get flagged by desecrating the other factions' fires, so if you're not overly fond of world PvP, you'll probably want to try this during a slow period (or, better yet, with a group). That said, if my experience is any indication, enemy players will usually leave you alone in the smaller townships and villages because they're occupied getting their own achievements. Enjoy it while it lasts, because after that you get to do --

King of the Fire Festival

Stealing the enemy's fires from their capital cities, by comparison, is a riskier proposition, but still doable if you're not averse to the possibility of dying a lot. King of the Fire Festival is awarded for stealing the flames of four enemy cities. When you do this, each flame appears in your packs as a quest to turn in at a Festival Loremaster (located around major city fires everywhere). Do all four, turn them in, and you get the achievement.

ALLIANCE

Undercity and Thunder Bluff are fairly easy; Orgrimmar and Silvermoon can be a royal pain. Due to the relatively decentralized nature of the Horde's intercity transportation system, you will probably spend more time both in transit and stealing fires than your Horde counterparts. I would recommend starting with Thunder Bluff.

Stealing Thunder Bluff's Flame: Thunder Bluff can be a nuisance because the bridge system confuses players unfamiliar with the city, but TB is generally uncrowded. If you have Slow Fall/Levitate or a parachute cloak, you can just jump off the city after getting the flame and evade the guards and any players in the vicinity. Tip: follow the signposts, and then mouse over the doorway of each bridge-building to confirm it heads to the Rise you want. The Thunder Bluff flame is located on Spirit Rise at 20,26. After this, visit Bloodhoof Village to desecrate the flame there, then ride out of Mulgore, desecrate the Crossroad's flame, ride east to get Razor Hill's, then ride toward the extreme northwestern edge of Durotar to get to Orgrimmar's least-troublesome entrance.

Stealing Orgrimmar's Flame: This is the most difficult of the Horde fires to capture, as Orgrimmar is typically the most crowded city and the fire is located fairly far in. It is probably easiest to enter the city from the little-used western gates and just stay on that road until you reach the flame. While this leaves you susceptible to high-level players porting in from Dalaran in the Troll huts located over the pond to your right as you ride in, it doesn't expose you to the masses of players congregated between Orgrimmar's bank and AH (which is what you'd have to deal with going in through the southern gates). Either way, try to do Orgrimmar during a slow period. If you want to head straight to Undercity afterwards and there aren't any high-level players around looking to pick a fight, ride out of the city and take the zeppelin straight to UC.

Stealing Undercity's Flame: The Undercity flame is by far the easiest of the four Horde fires to steal and is located in the Ruins of Lordaeron courtyard at 68,9. You don't actually have to enter the city, although Alliance players will get flagged as the Ruins are Horde territory. Alliance players with higher-level toons than I've got will have to confirm this for me, but I don't think it's possible for Alliance to use the Orb of Translocation to get to Silvermoon. Ride to Chillwind Camp in the Western Plaguelands (detour to Brill to desecrate that flame) and take a flight up to Zul'Aman. Ride to Silvermoon (and desecrate the flame at Tranquillien along the way).

Stealing Silvermoon's Flame: The Silvermoon fire is located at 69,39 in the Court of the Sun at 69,43. Silvermoon itself is generally not crowded and you should have little trouble.

HORDE

Historically it was a bigger hassle for Horde to get the Alliance fires than vice versa, because getting to either Ironforge or Stormwind's fires obligated you to run past the most crowded portions of the cities (even if afterwards you could use the Deeprun Tram to make the other city somewhat easier). These days, between the Stormwind docks and the Deeprun Tram, it's now possible for Horde to get all four Alliance fires without having to deal with the more crowded trade areas.

As such, I would recommend doing these in the following order:

Stealing Darnassus's Flame: Darnassus is the one freebie; you'll find the flame located outside of the city proper in Rut'theran Village as soon as you step off the boat from Auberdine (that said, you'll still have to get through the city to get the flame in Dolanaar for Flame Keeper of Kalimdor). When you're done with both fires, catch the boat back to Auberdine, desecrate the flame there, then transfer to the one heading to Azuremyst so you can do --

Stealing the Exodar's Flame: The Exodar's flame is located in the Crystal Hall at 41,25. The Exodar is generally uncrowded and this one shouldn't be too difficult, but the fire is still pretty far into the city. When you get off the boat, take the side entrance into the Exodar (located to your left off the road) in order to avoid as many players as possible. While you're on the Draenei islands, desecrate the flames at Azure Watch and Blood Watch. Afterwards, head back to Auberdine and transfer to the boat heading to Stormwind for --

Stealing Stormwind's Flame: The Stormwind flame is located at 38,61 around one of the entrances to the Stormwind Stockade. If you're coming from the docks, you should be able to avoid the more highly-trafficked portions of the city, but the odds of running into some high-level players are still decent. If you get mobbed, try to zone into the Stockades for a respite. Afterwards, mount up, ride for the Deeprun Tram, and head to Ironforge.

Stealing Ironforge's Flame: The Ironforge flame is located at 64,24 in the Hall of Explorers. You can get to it relatively fast if you're coming off the Tram (head out, hang a right, steal the fire, then sprint back to the Tram). Bear in mind that while the Tram is neutral territory (and on a PvE server your flag will drop there after 5 minutes), anyone who decides to make your life difficult can certainly follow you back there.

Got all four flames? Head back to a Festival Loremaster, turn them in, and enjoy your achievement.

Torch Juggler

It's a cruel joke on Blizzard's part to ask people to do this in Dalaran, which is such an almighty lagfest on so many servers, but it can't be helped. If your computer usually wheezes its way through the city at server high time, you'll definitely want to wait for a slow period in order to get this achievement done.

What you will need to do is purchase around 20-25 Juggling Torches from Midsummer vendors, then hotkey them somewhere convenient. Using a torch will allow you to target a specific area where you want it to land. Target it at your feet, then spam the hell out of your torch hotkey. This will automatically force each torch to come down where you're already standing, so you can instantly "juggle" it back. Use of the torches doesn't trigger the global cooldown, so as long as your latency and framerates are cooperating, you should be able to "juggle" 40 torches easily within the space of 15 seconds.

Ice the Frost Lord

Easy, easy, easy -- and if last year was any indication, lots of fun. You will already have this achievement if you're sitting on Tabard of Summer Skies or Tabard of Summer Flames, but for everyone else, the quest chain that leads to slaying Ahune starts with Earthen Ring Elders located around city fires everywhere. However, you need to be at least 65 to get the follow-up quest to head to Outland, then hit Slave Pens and kill Ahune. Ahune will drop an item (group loot) that starts Shards of Ahune, rewarding you with your choice of tabards and 20 Burning Blossoms.

For anyone doing the Ahune encounter for the first time this year, we wrote a guide on how to handle the fight here. To our knowledge, his loot list hasn't been altered from 2008, which means that the gear will be of the most use to players still leveling through Outland, but you can always keep trying for the wee Scorchling pet he drops.

Burning Hot Pole Dance

Sounds simple, right? Well, it would be, but buying these threads is going to cost you.

Do yourself a favor and get the Fires of Azeroth, Desecration, and King of the Fire Festival achievements done first. This will leave you with a ton of Burning Blossoms, which are the currency needed for purchasing items from Midsummer vendors, including the three clothing items required.

The 3 items you need for the set are:

Mantle of the Fire Festival: 100 blossoms
Sandals of Summer: 200 blossoms
Vestment of Summer: 100 blossoms

Why the shoes cost so much compared to the much flashier chest and shoulder pieces, I can't say, but the full set will run you 400 blossoms. This should be easily doable if you've completed the achievements referenced above, but it will mean that if you're still interested in purchasing the Captured Flame pet and the Brazier of Dancing Flames, you're going to have to put some work into the torch-juggling dailies in order to get enough. Unless Blizzard has changed the number of Burning Blossoms awarded by Midsummer quests and achievements (or nerfed the cost of vendor items), I don't think it's possible to purchase everything if you're starting from scratch. It should be possible to get the clothing and either the noncombat pet or the brazier, but not the pet and the brazier.

NOTE - Once you use the shoulders for the achievement, you can sell them back to the vendor for a blossom refund!

I did most of these last year on Brendore (and some on Lealla), before they became achievements. The tricky part about the flames is that, regardless of the zone you're in, you get flagged for PvP combat when you "capture" an opposing faction's flame. Most of the flames are in areas that are fairly lightly populated (or easy to escape from in the case of Outland), but be alert!

The Orgrimmar flame was the most difficult to get by far. I failed several times on Lealla, and only got it on Brendore because I managed to bubble. For this it might work best if you get in a city raid group, or go during offpeak hours.

Im sure most of us will be on sunday trying to finish this off, maybe we can just arrange to meet up and get the harder ones in a group?

Im pretty sure that we can all get it done (at least the intrested parties) before the two weeks are out though.

Sunday being Father's Day, I've been promised a day off. That would be a great time to do it. I can just see the Horde's faces when a mass of YaWA peeps descend on their towns.
