This year, Noblegarden runs from Sunday, April 2 and ends on April 9 on oceanic servers.
During Noblegarden, the towns of Azeroth and their immediate environs are liberally sprinkled with Noblegarden eggs for players to collect in a ravenous frenzy — er, in the spirit of sharing. These eggs contain treats fit for commoners and kings alike!
Not much has changed apart from the level required to purchase the Tome of Polymorph: Rabbit (now level 60).
There are two pets that can be purchased with 100 Noblegarden Chocolates or random drop from a Brightly Coloured Egg.
Swift Springstrider – the Epic Ground Mount for 2012. Sold by Noblegarden Merchants (Horde) and Noblegarden Vendors (Alliance) for 500 Noblegarden Chocolates, as well as a rare drop from Brightly Coloured Eggs.
Black Spring Circlet (50 chocolates) – designed to go with the tuxedo.
Pink Spring Circlet (50 chocolates) – designed to go with the elegant dress.

Last year, I spent the first hour racing around as a Noblegarden Bunny, which soon became a very tedious task. I opted to collect my 600 chocolates before handing them in on the off chance I looted the mount from one of the last 100 eggs.
Since the addition of CRZ, the egg hunt may have been daunting for many but a recent hotfix has made it more bearable.
