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).

Noblegarden Pets

Three pets can be purchased with Noblegarden Chocolates or as a random drop from looting a Brightly Coloured Egg.

Noblegarden Bunny – spawn egg spot

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.
