THE 2021 SPRING EGG HUNT HAS BEGUN!

30 March 2021

Get Eggscited for an Eggstraordinary Season!
New Eggs, New Interface, and a New Merchant!!

Spring has Sprung!

The season of renewal has returned to the Kingdom of Gnawnia and with it comes many eggsciting new things! This year the Spring Egg Hunt has a brand new interface, new eggs, new rewards, and even a whole new merchant!

While much has changed this year, the egg hunting remains the same. To get started, you'll need a special egg-finding piece of equipment called an Eggscavator. If you do not already own one, you can purchase one for 10,000 gold from the brand new Spring Egg Hunt heads-up display. So grab yourself an Eggscavator and get ready for an eggsceptional season!

A New Merchant has Arrived in the Kingdom!

A new merchant has travelled to the Kingdom of Gnawnia to celebrate the coming of Spring: Lady Laura, the Chocolatier! But she is no ordinary Chocolatier; Lady Laura is a master of the lost art of CocoAlchemy which gives her the ability to wield the mighty power of the purest chocolate known to science: Chocolatonium!

Unfortunately, while travelling to the Kingdom her caravan was raided by greedy, chocolate-obsessed mice who stole all of her Chocolatonium! Collect the stolen Chocolatonium from the Spring event mice that are roaming all over the Kingdom. These mice are so plentiful right now that you won't even need cheese to attract them!

Return the Chocolatonium to Lady Laura to unlock the shelves in her Chocolate Shop and she'll show her gratitude by presenting you with special, one-time rewards for unlocking each shelf. Once a shelf has been unlocked, you'll be able to purchase the items on that shelf with Chocolatonium anytime during the event

Spring Mice and Spring Eggs

The Chocolatonium has driven the Spring event mice into such a frenzy that they are no longer confined to specific stockpile locations. You'll now find these mice EVERYWHERE in the Kingdom! They're so abundant that you no longer need special cheese to attract them. In fact, you don't need any cheese at all!

The Spring event mice are now all exclusively bonus hunts meaning they'll occasionally wander into your trap without consuming cheese or charms and without affecting any area gameplay progression. The Spring mice will always drop Chocolatonium when caught.

As with previous years, certain Spring mice will also drop the yearly Spring eggs when caught. These eggs can no longer be doubled with Eggstra Charms but to compensate their contents have been made more lucrative this year! Cracking these new versions of the Spring eggs open will provide TWICE as much SUPER|brie+ from previous years as well as some new items! The new 21K Golden Egg is eggspecially packed with goodies this year!

This year there are 20 brand new eggs to find! You will need your trusty Eggscavator to find them so make sure you pick one up before you head out!

The Eggsweeper Has Returned!

MouseHunt Eggsweeper is a mini-game about finding eggs which is only available during the seasonal event about finding eggs. That's a lot of eggs!

There are 10 eggs hidden somewhere in the field and you need to reveal them all to earn rank-specific rewards! Each tile you reveal costs 1 Eggsweeper Shovel. When you reveal a tile, you will either be shown a number or an egg. The number shown is a clue representing how many eggs are hidden in nearby tiles (diagonals included). If you reveal an egg, you get a special Eggsweeper Egg added to your inventory based on your hunter title.

Eggsweeper Egg Tiers by Title Range

  • Tier 1: Novice to Journeyman/Journeywoman
  • Tier 2: Master to Lord/Lady
  • Tier 3: Baron/Baronness and Count/Countess
  • Tier 4: Duke/Duchess and up (now with Floating Islands loot!)

These eggs will contain loot appropriate for areas in the Kingdom tied to the hunter ranks. You can find a few Eggsweeper Shovels in each of this year's Spring Eggs including a whopping 60 inside of this year's Golden Egg! You can also find them in your Daily Loyalty Chest, Lady Laura will gift you some for unlocking each of the shelves in her Chocolate Shop, or you can purchase them from the Premium Shop.

For even more eggstraordinary rewards, dust your Eggsweeper field with Magical Fertilizer before you start the mini-game! All the eggs found in a fertilized field will be eggsploding with even more amazing loot!

IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE

Chocolatonium has a highly unstable atomic structure and therefore only has a very short half-life. Any pure Chocolatonium exposed to the open air will undergo radioactive decay after only four weeks and even when it's properly contained within a hunter's inventory, it will only last an additional two weeks.

As of April 27, 2021, mice will no longer drop Chocolatonium and eggs no longer be found in the Kingdom.

As of May 11, 2021, any Chocolatonium that remains in a hunter's inventory will decay into nothingness!

Make sure to spend it all at the Chocolate Shop while you can!
