Well, I'm still enjoying the fire festival. Sadly, with 17 kills of Ahune there's still no sign of my pet, but it's a really great fight to be part of from a healer perspective. You have to be on your toes and use spells you wouldn't normally use on a boss fight. There's little time so Greater Heal is pretty much out of the question then in phase 2 of the fight you need to be doing some dps as well. Kestrel has done a fantastic guide on how to kill this boss.
Another great source of information I found about the fire festival in general is in "A Dwarf Priest's" guide .
I'm no great writer of guides, theory and stuff, but I'm fantastic at finding information from other sources and I intend to share the sources of my knowledge with you here.
Another guide to how to catch those blasted torches is found here . This is a hard quest for a keyboard turner like me, but if you can time it so there aren't many people around it's much easier and also people don't get to see you messing it up :)
As I said in my previous post, I've already spent 700 blossoms on a new pet and brazier and am now saving for a nice new dress [Vesment of Summer]
Happy festival all!
