Or, how to keep hundreds of overachievers busy.
Was it just my server, or is every server’s newbie area overrun with a peculiar affair?
That of hundreds of rabbits, all level 80, simply sitting in place, not moving, waiting,
waiting for the egg that, apparently, will spawn in front of them to spawn in front of them.
These rabbits all over the place. Quietly parked at every building edge, every feature of Azure Watch…
Because the Overachievers MUST HAVE the Violet Proto-Drake, THIS YEAR, BY GUM!, they’re going to sit in place for … hours? and wait for the egg to respawn directly in front of them. (Violet Prot0-drake the reward for achieving all seasonal events.)
Sorry, dumb me, I was running around, in rabbit form, (for some reason), and I took the eggs where I saw them. I turned the quests in, and then I left a lot of rabbits parked where I first saw them, waiting, and waiting.
I’m not sure if this event is working as intended. Or they’re just there to collect the required 10,250 eggs, with the absolute least amount of effort, and be done with it today. Then it’s back to … raiding? (Minimize effort to maximum effect.)
Or, it’s like that old idiom:
How do you keep an idiot busy? See next sentence.
How do you keep an idiot busy? See previous paragraph.
Anyway, it’s back to the tournament for me. (Two Champions now.)
P.S. The wife checked out Goldshire. Same thing. Rabbits lining the all walls, immobile, twitching, waiting for the egg to spawn in front of their little whiskers. Hundreds. She’ll try some other time.
