Noblegarden 2013

1

This year, Noblegarden runs from Sunday, April 2 and ends on April 9 on oceanic servers.

Spring robes with all the trimmings, inc. Spring rabbit pet

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 this year apart from the level requirement to purchase the Tome of Polymorph: Rabbit (now level 60). In addition to this, the Spring Rabbit’s Foot has also become a battle pet, just like other world event pets.

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. However, I collected 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.

Darkmoon Rabbit

The Darkmoon Rabbit is here!

When I found him, he was just chilling in the cave.

Looking at him he just looks like any other cute and cuddly critter, right?

WRONG!

He’s a world boss with 72 million health, so he’s certainly no pushover.

In researching this post, I went to great lengths to bring you this info. This rabbit has one annoying and pretty painful ability.

He puts this debuff on anyone in melee range so if you can, try and stay at maximum range, have a large raid (he’s been killed with 40) or you’ll be looking at a lot of repair bills. He used to ignore hunter and warlock pets but this has since been fixed. Also, avoid the water line as he has been known to reset. If you die, release and run back.

However, successfully killing this creature will drop the Darkmoon Rabbit which one lucky person will win, as well as the following achievement – That Rabbit’s Dynamite! to everyone in the raid. This is something I hope to get one day on both counts, ever since I learnt about the guy on early beta :)

Proof that the fight is possible, as seen here on day one of the Faire

For those who don’t know, he’s based on a fictional beast from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

So for those of you looking to get a new pet and achievement… happy hunting!

Cooking in Pandaria

0

At the moment there are only two recipes available to learn from the cooking trainer. Fish cake (restores health and mana) and Pandaren meatballs (restores health). I managed to get a skill point every 1-3 Fish cakes but sadly, cooking the Fish cake only gets you to 530 before the recipe turns grey.

Cooking in Mists is tied in very heavily with The Tillers so if you’re serious about getting your cooking skill up, you’ll need to work on your Tillers reputation as well. Keep in mind that the dailies for The Tillers will only become available once you reach level 90.
