Hardly eggs-citing

Yeah, I resorted to a cheap egg pun. Whatever.

Zarigar got the Noblegarden meta achievement back in 2009, so the past couple of years I haven’t really paid that much attention to it. I don’t really go for the intensive holiday grinding or achievement chasing on my other toons.

Even with the meta, though, Zari is till missing some of the little achievements for the holiday. Finding a dress and finding the tuxedo outfit. Achieves that are part of the holiday but not part of the meta. And since they are not part of the meta and I didn’t “need” to do them, then I just didn’t.

And this year was going to be no different. The thought of farming eggs in the hopes of getting the clothes out of them was boring to me.

But then they put in a mount. A stupid little mount that you can get and all you have to do is collect eggs.

Wickedly genius, Blizz.

If I farm enough eggs I can get the mount. The mount could also be a random drop. And while I’m collecting eggs I might get those last few achievements. I could potentially kill several birds with one stone.

I don’t even have to wonder if I will waste the entire holiday farming eggs. Regardless of my luck, I can get the mount if I am patient enough.

Patient? Zarigar? Yeah, that would be the drawback.

Bloodhoof Village was pretty dead. There were only a couple of rabbits zipping around. Eventually it seemed like I was the only one there.

And OH.MY.GOD. how boring that was.

Farming will never be my strength. Whether it’s herbs or ore or pixel eggs I just don’t have the patience for it. I am the reason AH prices are jacked so high; lazy people like me will pay almost anything not to have to go out and do the work ourselves.

Unfortunately I can’t outsource egg farming. I stuck with it longer than I thought I would, only because I knew that having the place all to myself was a rarity that I should take advatage of.

I did eventually give up for the night with the only things found was the pet that I already had and a bouquet of spring flowers. I accepted the daily and gave her my chocolates before realizing in horror what I had done. NOOOOOOO, I NEEDS THOSE CHOCOLATES!!! GIVE THEM BACK!!!!!!

I’ll go back later and work on it some more. To anyone farming eggs on more than one toon, I have 3 words for you:

You are insane.

  1. Egg hunting is like the Yogg-Saron fight. The longer you do it, the more sanity you lose.

    • I’m really just glad I don’t have to try to do that achievement of putting ears on each race.

      • I’m learning it’s better to do those things early…because next year it will include Pandas too. Even toons that were close now have to find goblin and worgen as well…ugh.
