As a fairly new blogger, I haven’t participated in many blogging events but I’d heard about this challenge from Navi and was keen to find out more about it. Luckily for us, Kamalia decided to host it again this year, which was first run by Angelya back in 2010.
A total of 21 bloggers participated and I must say that there were some really devious players. I was a little surprised to find that mine was listed in the ‘Hard’ basket, as well as three others. Luckily for me, I managed to find two of these.
Here are the six I had trouble finding:
- Red Cow Rise – very clever link there Aka
Series & Resources page, “3″ in “The Leatherworkers: Tier 3″ is a separate link leading to this hilarious bonus comic
- The Golden Crusade – missed the hover on this one
Prospecting Rates page, “Pyrite Ore” pops up Brightly Coloured Egg tooltip from Wowhead instead of the proper ore tooltip
- Tome of the Ancient – sneaky, sneaky Druid
Death Series page (linked in the right sidebar), picture of Coldarra, fourth from top, has egg sitting on a rock in the lower right corner
- Toys of Azeroth – OK, I actually saw this one a few times but didn’t think it was the entry as it said ‘Netherwing Egg’ :P
Tiny Purple Dragon (third post of the blog), “Netherwing Eggs” reference and Wowhead tooltip pop up in the second sentence of the last paragraph.
- Orcish Army Knife – I did notice something with the banner but I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me (this was after a couple of hours of hunting) :P
Watch the right side of the header banner image carefully — the glow of the lantern will dim and brighten a couple of times, and then an egg will appear on the ledge directly above the lantern for a split second before fading away again.
- Oddcraft – ok, even with the formula it was tricky
Mists of Pandaria Links You Won’t Believe (Cause They’re LIES!), in the upper right corner of the image, “today’s equation (due Sunday – 4/8): (100^2)/2 + 7*sqrt(121)” solves to 577, which decodes alphanumerically to EGG
After the deadline, I was eagerly anticipating who had won the awesome prizes this year. I awoke to find my winning email from Kamalia telling me I had won the Grand Prize – Cymre would be featured in an upcoming episode of From Draenor With Love!
For those wondering where my egg was:
I decided to use the Critter Wars post as I referenced an “easter egg of sorts” back when I wrote it, so I thought it would be the perfect place for my hidden egg. :)
Go to ‘Places‘ (in the top menu) scroll down to the “Survival of the Fittest” post about the fighting critters in Mulgore, hover over the top image (aerial view of the plateau) to read “Mulgore Plateau – Noblegarden Egg – 2012″. Click on that to find a confirmation image. :)
Out of interest, how many found my egg? Let me know in the comments below…
