- For full event details, including egg images, see the main article Beast'r Eggstravaganza
This guide is intended to provide detailed ways to locate and capture pet eggs during the Beast'r Eggstravaganza. The live event, which occurs in late-to-mid April is very short, so those who are inclined to collect character Achievements (and titles), fluff pets or house items may find it hard to run all of your characters through the event and collect the eggs.
It can be quite fun to accidentally discover the eggs, so if this you've not tired to hunt them without the help, try it first. If you don't like spoilers, skip this guide!
About Egg SpawnsEdit
This guide explains where the eggs may appear at any given time in each zone, but several factors effect them.
- The type of egg that appears is random, so none of these locations will produce a specific egg; likewise, you can capture the same eggs many times in a row.
- If the area you are hunting eggs in is busy with other egg hunters, you may get to a location and find nothing, as other players can also find the same eggs you are looking for before you arrive.
- The eggs move and despawn, so when you see it, grab it quickly or it may vanish.
- The timer on these to respawn is not clear; however, there does seem to be a gap at times when no eggs appear, so they may also be on a timer by the number of eggs.
- Unlike the collectible shinies, the eggs to collect as pets are identical in all locations, so players can pick one city and master its locations.
Egg Hunting StrategiesEdit
Location, Location, LocationEdit
Head to the zone of your choice and use the descriptions or /loc command (provided below) to visit the areas the eggs may be; you may get lucky and grab a few on this tour, then ask a guard to mark the active eggs on the map. If you have a sense of where to go, it can make travel to collect the eggs much faster, reducing the chance they will move or despawn before you arrive at the marked map location.
Ask a GuardEdit
Epic guards will provide players with egg locations. Locate a guard that is on patrol or near a key location (e.g. near entrance gates), R click them and select the "Find NPC" option. When the window opens, type the term "Beast". A way point is created on the map, but this can produce mixed results, since it can point you toward the vendors or the activated pets of other players.

Beast'r Egg Capture LocationsEdit
Below you will find both location coordinates you can type in the chat window (use /loc and add the coordinates) and a description of the location. The description may be preferable if you'd rather engage in a more casual type of discovery while you explore or adventure.
This guide may not have all locations. If you've found a new location, please type /loc command (by itself) in chat, while in game to gather the location's coordinates. Add that information and a brief visual or related location description in the appropriate section below.
Like Freeport and the Qeynos Provence, this zone is fairly easy for egg location and capture. Its major advantage is the wide open space an smattering of guards to help point you to active eggs. This zone is extremely factional, so your alignment will matter. If your character is aligned with Freeport, Neriak, or Gorowyn, look for guard help on the roads (they ride mounts), at the zone-in gates, and near the larger bridges.

This zone may be the one hardest for anyone in a hurry even if they are aligned with New Halas, Qeynos, and Kelethin, due in part to 1) the low number of guards compared to other cities and zones proximity of NPCs that will be misidentified (for this task) as beasts due to their names: 2) Torvil Beastamer 3) the event celebrants.

By far, this is the most frustrating zone for egg hunting, primarily because the waypoints to eggs are not clearly on top of or below the city's platforms. If you're looking for a real challenge and don't want any help, hunt eggs in this city. Players will not be attacked by guard based on opposing alignment, but guards only help those aligned with Kelethin, Qeynos, or New Halas.

Though they will not attack outsiders, only those aligned with Gorowyn, Freeport, or Neriak will get help from the guards. This region has issues similar to Kelethin, due to its many platforms and levels; however, the placement of the eggs within the caves or far outside of the platformed city areas make it much easier to hunt in than Kelethin.
