Screw the starter zones. Go to Terokkar.
Yes. Terokkar. Where everyone else was camping a spawn or two, I ran laps around the zone and picked up eggs. Sometimes I’d go a bit without finding any, other times, I’d hit up four or five in a row. As a bonus, I’d occasionally spot a horde in their mid 60s or so and would run around them in circles letting them wonder if I was going to gank them or not.
I didn’t, and was rewarded for my upstanding morality with the pet on my 70-somthing-ith egg, which was all I really wanted from the damn event. I also got the Spring Flowers, and have every attention of using them to drive Steve nuts, much as we did the Hollow’s End pumpkins.
I never saw anyone camping spawns, and most of the time I was one of only 3-4 Alliance in the zone. I did spot active competition once, but they were on a flying mount. Do not scout for eggs on your epic flyers, especially not in Terokkar. You’ll miss a lot of eggs that way-several of the spawns are nestled inside clusters of trees. The main problem I had was repeatedly mistaking the glowing seed thingys for eggs at a distance.
That is a VERY rough outline encasing the area in which I found eggs.
