Windle’s Brief Spark

Shoxxie meets Windle As some of you may know, for quite some time now, I have been very keen to help Windle Sparkshine light the lamps of Dalaran.  Shoxxie The Shammie is standing next to Windle here outside the Alliance Inn, A Hero’s Welcome.  Most of the day he just sort of stands there, not looking very exciting.  At 9 pm server, however, he springs to life!  If you follow him on his trip around Dalaran you will see him touch his wand to the base of the lamps and give them a spark!


You can follow him along as he does his nightly work –  which he does very poorly; he lights none of the lamps in the trade district (the half circle with all the profession trainers), and he lights none of the little lamps on the walls.  However, at the end, when he returns to the outside of the Hero’s Welcome, you can click on him again, and now, you can actually purchase something!  You can buy his little wand Windle’s Lighter!!  And then YOU can go around and finish his job for him!!  Yay! This was the part I was getting really excited about!

Shoxxie went around lighting a few lamps on the walls, and I even got Snazzie a lighter, so she could do one too … but the joy quickly faded — I had forgotten to read the fine print.  The lighter only lasts for 15 minutes 🙁  You cannot come back the next night and light lamps again.  Highly disappointing!!! And to top it all off, it only has 5 charges!!! So you can’t even light all the lamps that lazy Windle missed. But if you’re really looking for something exciting to do while waiting for a raid or whatever, this was kind of amusing!

  1. No clue here either. I don’t spend enough time in Dalaran to notice much of anything that goes on there though. Still, nice to know. I’ll have to give it a shot myself.

    Is there any chance of buying more than one lighter? Or can more than one person buy it?

    1. I’m not sure if you can buy more than one per character, but I had both Snazzie and Shoxxie buy one, so I know that more than one person can.

      1. Well if more than one person can buy one then you could certainly get enough to light them all.

        I wonder if there’s anything special from having all of them lit?

        1. I don’t think there’s an achievement – but there might be something interesting that happens … hmmm … maybe I’ll check it out 🙂
