    There must be a reason why vets would buy them. I am not sure if a "most redeemed eggs (bought with dirty money)" reward would be very appealing. :p

    The event is still running. Probably stops when Telamon wakes up or has the time to stop it?

    But I think the intentions are completely different one can have. Those who do it for the rewards are not necessarily driven by the aspect of overtaking the next one on the leaderboard. For me it was like a marathon – but competing with "egg-buyers" is like doing this marathon against competitors on steroids :D
    But hey. It was my first time, had fun and this discussion seems to be the same every year. I'm cool with it – just wanted to share my thoughts how to improve it :)

    Every civilized discussion is a good thing, eh? The proposed ideas here aren't bad at all.

    But one has to consider, the last years were completely different events. People actually had to kill bunnies and fluffies, there was no base egg spawn. This opened the field for pvp and thieving and made the eggs much more worth. The downside was that only tamers could participate succesfully, especially the 3 client users. This year was perfect for roguish stealth/mage/trackers. I guess, there are pro's and cons to everything.

    I'd even prefer making it necessary to kill bunnies and fluffies, but tweaking their stats and resists so, that more templates can participate without the need for tamers. At least dexxer/bards like last halloween.

    The role of the bunnies and Fluffy in this event was disappointing, yes. But would this have been the only way to get eggs, I couldn't attend either. No chance to bring those bastards down as lonely archer ;-)

    I think it's great the way it is. Anybody can participate this way. All the other events are killing based, this one is fun because you just have to run everywhere looking for the eggs AND IF you want to you have the option to kill.

    This is a great idea. Also, if we could have 3rd tab on Redeemed Eggs by Guild it would be really fun. I can't remember any event where there's a guild dispute of this kind, it would be fun I guess!

    Money flowing from vets to new players is a good thing. Especially when what the vets are getting is simply a trophy that says 1st place.

    More events like this!

    It should just be a 1 day event, problems solved.....one big hunt, people fall where they may on the leaderboard.


    OR IDEALLY, ditch the static egg respawns throughout the world and just have them placed once until found like a real easter egg hunt. Once they're all found, only place to get them is from bunnies/fluffy...they'd be worth more $$ if there was a somewhat fixed number in the world, and newbs could still sell them..

    After the first day I had exactly 2x as many eggs as the second place person lol I had 572 and Larry had ~280. All picked up via scavenger.


    My trick for finding eggs was to constantly move and if I didn't start finding eggs quickly I'd move on to another dungeon (t2a desert was good when fully spawned) until I started finding them. If you run through a dungeon and aren't finding them, they haven't had enough time to respawn from when the last person ran through. So move till you find several quickly and lit's likely that it's a fresh spawn. Should get 15-25+ eggs per run through deceit, hyth, etc if nobody has been there for 30+ minutes.

    Those are fun, but they limit who can attend. If someone has to work that day, do family stuff, or whatever, they are totally out of the entire event.

    We do have scheduled events like that here (anniversary scavenger hunt & halloween). Better to have a mix, I think.
