20 Days of WoW - Day 11: Favourite WoW holiday

A quick one today, it seems. I just had to look through the whole list of holidays again (thanks to long flight times during archaeology that is not a problem ... really ... got all the time in the world ... anyone out there? ... anyone?) just to be sure I didn't miss anything.

So: favourite one is Midsummer.

And it's easy, too, because almost all the other ones manage to disqualify themselves by including a stupid achievement that is entirely based on luck and which has in no part any concern for dedication (or at least they did when I had to do them - Perma Peddle is apparently now buyable!).

A close runner-up is only Children's Week, because it teaches young children everything they need to know about World of Warcraft. Killing kings and misbehaving in battlegrounds for achievements is just perfect.


Why midsummer festival?

Because basically, what you get is a lot of people who want to set fire to something big. Like a pile of guns. For no particular reason.

And then, when the camping bikers (that is supposed to be the image of a big strong rough tough biker gang - closest I could find on google) are all sat around their campfire, toasting their (manly - jalapeno flavoured!) marshmellows, you basically walk up to them and piss on their fire.

Each and every one of them.

I approve.
