The Midsummer Fire Festival is a holiday in World of Warcraft where you must honor your faction’s flames and desecrate your enemy flames to earn rewards. Kill two birds with one stone and use a toon that hasn’t reached max level to both collect Burning Blossom tokens and earn XP. As of writing this post, my monk is earning 8,100 XP per honor and 16,150 per desecration. Full disclusure, I play Alliance.
