It’s that time again to begin the craze for Achievements/Loot/Titles with another holiday, Noblegarden! I don’t know about the realms you play on, but the two I have 80′s that would like to get this title were..crazy to say the least. I started this event as soon as it came up on my priest, 12:01 a.m. Server time. For the first 30 to 40 minutes or so, I was running around Bloodhoof Village collecting Brightly Colored Eggs from various spawn points. After this time just about every spawn point in Bloodhoof had a “Camper” sitting at the egg looting it as soon as it came up. Now I figured this would be one of the least populated places, but I was wrong about that. My guess is that everyone had the same thought as me, “Bloodhoof Village is always empty, nobody will be there.” Little did we know, everyone was there. After I finally collected 100 to buy my Spring Rabbit, a friend and I paired up to fly out to Un’Goro and lay an egg, as well as have our pets erm..’Love’ each other in each of the collecting cities for the achievements, Spring Fling and Hard Boiled. Upon completing these two I went to Razor Hill to try my luck at finding eggs here. Now the spawns here were much more spread out and..hard to find compared to Bloodhoof so I decided to join the campers in their quest for egg domination! I personally hate that the WoW community turned this holiday into such a simple stare at your screen for hours event, but there were so many people on my priest’s realm that I had no choice but to camp a spawn. Overall, doing every achievement and gathering enough eggs to gain the title “the Noble“, took me 6 hours to complete.
Now I’m usually not one to complain, but the amount of people sitting at spawn points was a little ridiculous in my opinion. I mean, the “hunt” for eggs was much more fun than sitting there staring at a certain point cramping my hand from clicking for so long only to gain a title and some frilly items. I know nobody forced me to do this, besides myself, but eh what can I say I like titles =). Anyway, all I’m trying to complain about is this holiday had a pretty decent design to be used, except of course it had a flaw. I’d prefer running around the towns to gain my eggs but with as heavy populated as they are on my realm(s) I’d have to say, camping seems more efficient at gathering chocolate/eggs.
I have been able to get the title now on both my Hunter as well as my Priest. I’m working to get some ears and dresses for my alts now just to have when I find the time. I’d like to share how I go about gaining this title now that I have some knowledge about it. So here it goes! First, I run to either Brill or Razor Hill. I’m not sure why but I prefer these places for egg hunting, unless Bloodhoof isn’t to crowded, I love the cows . Anyway, once at the towns I try to decide if there are way to many campers than I’ll have to find a spot and join them. If there isn’t so many and eggs are being left unlooted I shall begin my route around town attempting to get eggs. So, I start off by looting an egg to get I Found One! Afterwords I continue collecting eggs until I have gathered 20 Chocolates/Shells to complete the two quests The Great Egg Hunt and A Tisket, A Tasket, A Noblegarden Basket. Once those are complete, I continue farming eggs up until I have 100. Once I have gotten 100 Noblegarden Chocolates I eat them all to get the Achievement Chocoholic. If by then I haven’t looted all the items I’d like to have such as the Rabbit pet or the Spring Circlet, I will continue to gather eggs until I have everything I want. Now all you need to finish the achievements to get your title is the Spring Rabbit, Spring Flowers, Spring Robes, White Tuxedo Shirt, Black Tuxedo Pants, Noblegarden Egg, and possibly Blossoming Branch. So if you don’t have time to get everything else or aren’t lucky enough to get any of the items from eggs you don’t have to go for everything but in order to get the title if you don’t get any items from the eggs you will have to collect 355 Noblegarden Chocolates. Pretty simple just takes a lot of time. Good luck to you all! Happy Noblegarden — Can’t wait for Children’s Week.
