So, I logged on this morning to start taking a look at the new Noblegarden event. First, I checked out the posts on WoWinsider, to see where to find eggs & how to do all the achievement things.
Then, I went to the Night Elf starting area, Dolanaar, and started hunting for eggs. There were 2 quests available to me at the inn there, so I picked ‘em up and started egg hunting.
On my second or third egg, I got turned into a bunny and laid an easter egg.
So, it looks like moonkin do lay eggs.
Actually, it was funnier watching the hunter pets chasing after their bunny-shaped hunters. I hope none of the hunters got eaten by their pets…
Originally, I was very concerned about the number of eggs I was going to have to collect to complete all the holiday achievements. However, the only frustrating part is finding an egg spawn point, and having to sit there and camp it, while hoping no one else will steal the egg when it spawns. There isn’t a whole lot of searching I could do, because there was someone at just about every spawn point in Dolanaar. I heard some of my alliance guild members went to Horde starter zones (where they could still pick up eggs) just because it was less crowded.
So, basically, I think the only major problem with the holiday is that there still aren’t enough egg spawn points for my Egg Basket speed boost to be of any real use.
If you need help figuring out all the quests and stuff for it, Wowhead also has a guide up on what to do for each quest. Mostly, everything just involves looting the eggs. Try to loot up a bunch of eggs before you buy any of the items, otherwise you’ll just be frustrated by wasting 100 eggs for an item that’s likely to drop for you out of one of the eggs. However, if it doesn’t drop, you DO have the option to buy every item needed to complete the meta-achievement.
What is encouraging is that I managed to get 3 Spring Rabbit’s Foot drops in the 100 or so eggs I’ve farmed up so far (too bad they’re BOP). I’ve been busy with school stuff, which has prevented me from doing much more with the noblegarden achievements, but I think that with a week to complete everything, we should have plenty of time. Heck, there’s even at least one person on my server who has already completed the meta-achievement for the Noblegarden holiday. So, it can’t be that bad…
