“Eggcelent Suggestion” or “The Definition of Insanity”

April 6, 2010 3 comments

What is the definition of insanity? Doing something over and over again with no difference in the outcome of your actions. Such is the main objective of the Noblegarden festival in World of Warcraft, an MMO I have played for a long time, and that I just subscribed to again.

While loading back in and tweaking with a few mods, I decided to check out the festivities associated with the Noblegarden event. If you would like an excellent guide on the in-game event, you can find one here. Since the most critical aspect of this event is gathering eggs, you can find a guide for quickly accumulating those eggs here.

Inspired by this last post from and through my in-game experiences with the event, I would advise all egg-hunters to camp the following spot in Goldshire. You basically need to go to Goldshire, go around the outside of the inn, and find a little nook on the southeastern side of the building.

The left circle is where the entrance is. The right circle is where you want to be.

If you stand where I am standing in the attached screenshots, you can click on four egg spawns without having to move. A fifth one (requiring you to move) is just a little to your right.

Click to enlarge. The while circles are egg spawn points.

The spot also has the added advantage of being in the digital confines of the inn, so you will be seen as “resting” by the game in this spot, and if you logout, it will be instantaneous, instead of having to wait for 20 seconds. Enjoy!
