Grab a Brewfest T-Shirt from Jinx!


If you haven’t noticed, Brewfest is in full swing, and you should be out there getting prize tickets and racing rams if you want to get your hands on a Violet Proto-Drake, or just want to be a part of the action.

But don’t just settle for celebrating Brewfest in-game, get in on the action in real life with’s Brewfest t-shirt! (available in men’s and women’s sizes, too!)

It’s no secret that the Midsummer Fire Festival is my favorite in-game holiday. There’s something about celebrating the solstice, the beginning of summer, and well…fire, that makes me incredibly happy. Traveling from bonfire to bonfire, stamping out the opposing faction’s fires and lighting up my own – it’s a lot of world-traveling fun. The trick though is that every year you wind up traveling the Azerothian globe for hours looking for flames, and it can be even worse if they’ve been moved from the previous year.

This year, with the launch of Wrath, introduces a number of Northrend fires as well, and a number of dungeon fires that will likely be difficult to get to. So who do you turn to when you need all the best information about the Fire Festival?

WoWGrrl, of course! (PS – follow her exploits on Twitter at @wowgrrl – folks like me whose guilds are too small for endgame raiding can only live vicariously through her adventures!) She posted her Midsummer Festival Guide and Bonfire Locations yesterday, and it’s been my resource for where to go and how to get everything done – she has all the links to the necessary pages in one place for easy bookmarking! The tip on earning extra experience doesn’t hurt either.
