    Help with Onyx Eggs

    Anyone know a good addon that can help me track Onyx Eggs a little easier? I use GatherMate_2 but it can only see eggs that I recently picked up... Is there an import or something I can put in it to help me out?

    Thank you in advance!

    You can look up the Onxy Egg on WoWhead, someone posted TomTom Waypoints for those eggs. I tried to use it, but due the different heights the eggs can spawn I found it not really helpful.

    Someone posted a map here a while back when I did my egg hunt on my shaman. Just fly to all the known spawn locations a couple of times and you'll memorize a route.

    I would just stick to the dailies, the eggs are getting camped 24/7 and with the nerf to the spawn it makes it not worth wasting your time on looking for them.

    Unless you plan on sitting on top of eggs spawns 24/7, I wouldn't worry about doing more than one pass while working on dailies. I've been working on them for 2 weeks, seen one egg. I used to look several times a day, but with the nerfed drop rates, it's not worth the time sink. Battered Hilt 2.0

    I know this is a bump, but if anyone is looking up info on Onyx Eggs and stumbles upon this do not listen to this. you simply need to know where to look and when to look. late nights, early mornings etc. if you have the patience and dedication you'll find them. I've gotten about 30 over the past 2 days, roughly 3 1/2 hours of total playtime. it is definitely not as bad as people say, unless you are on a high population server.

    Im on a low-mid pop server and even early in the morning, like 3-5am there are people looking for the eggs.

    You know how i managed exalted in the first week? Waited up until server maintenance was done (only a short 2 hour one), and logged in and flew round. Looted 11 in about 2 minutes which was more than enough to finish up the last part of rep. This doesn't work with plain restarts, but it does work with maintenance as they have time to respawn. It's inconvenient yes, but it's the only real way of guaranteeing them.

    i recommend doing the dailys for 2 weeks straight, and u will be exalted. No eggcamping involved.

    Importing GatherMate 2 data definitely helps. Even if it doesn't give you the spawn's altitude, you can guess where the egg would be by comparing the map to the terrain : I just had a lucky streak last morning (9 eggs at 7 am) and the eggs were very easy to see (since they're rather large) and in fairly obvious places if you look at the map.

    As far as I know these things tend to be all or nothing, patrol for them once or twice at the beginning and end of your dailies, but if you don't see anything the first time around, don't expect too much. But I suggest you always try regardless, I did once find 4 of them in a row at 7 pm at "rush hour".

    And anyway, the Cloud Serpent dailies are short, rather fun and give plenty of rep, so unless you're REALLY in a hurry, I wouldn't recommend camping these...

    YOu don't really need an add on. I started this tonight for the first time finally. I saw on google the main spawn points, which are 3 of the top cliffs. I got my instant cast flying broom stick and got to it.

    I managed to find one egg every 15-20 minutes. After 2 hours and 45 minutes, I had 10 eggs. 5500 rep! I am almost revered on my first day of rep, about 70% into it.

    Just keep in mind most of the eggs wont be hidden under bushes completely, they're pretty easy to see so dont spend too much time searching up close under stuff. You can also see eggs down on the ground from up there at the same time, so no need to fly down and check.

    BTW, something about hunting eggs, the level of feedback I get from just the right sense of effort paid for reward, coupled with the competition of other people hunting eggs, coupled with the super fast sense of movement as I zoomed around the islands very fast like superman on a broom,... it put me in a flow state I haven't felt in a video game in about 7 years. I was addicted, just like a gambler. My back and neck ached, an hour felt like 20 mins, my eyes burned, I was slack jawed, breathing like a zen master in a trance, endorphins pumping from the carrot on a stick, by the time I had 10 eggs I felt wiped out. I can't wait to try this when I've had sleep and when everyone on the server is gone at a late hour.

    I can actually confirm that they do spawn after server restarts. I've gotten eggs on more than one occasion straight after a server restart, only 2 each times though, since there were other people there with the same idea as me >.<

    After getting ten in 2 and a half hours, I took a few hours break. Came back around an hour ago, got 7 eggs in 5 minutes!
    I've gone from nothing to revered in one day.

    But now I've gone a whole hour without one egg, the longest I've gone is 20 minutes before.

    OMG! Only about 24 hours and I managed to go from nothing to exalted! I thought this was only possible before the egg nerf. I'm an egg hunting machine!
