WoW Noblegarden 2013 Guide (March 31 - April 6)

Date: Mar 31 2013 Views: ( ) Comments ()

Noblegarden is the World of Warcraft counterpart of Easter, the most important Christian festival.

All characters will be able to participate, as none of the activities has a level requirement.

The event itself takes place mostly in low level towns of each faction, where players will busy themselves searching for eggs that contain rewards and items needed for the achievements.

This guide will walk you through everything you need to know to complete the event.

1. Overview

Noblegarden is a rather simple and short event. You will be spending the majority of your time looking for Brightly Colored Egg Icon Brightly Colored Eggs around low level towns of your faction. These eggs contain the tokens you will need to buy the rewards, as well as the items you will need to complete the achievements.

1.1. Eligibility

All characters (from level 1 to 90) are eligible to participate in the event and can earn all the achievements and rewards (with the exception of Tome of Polymorph: Rabbit Icon Tome of Polymorph: Rabbit for Mages, which can be bought at any level but requires level 60 to use).

1.2. Date and Timeline

Noblegarden is a 1-week event. This year, it will start on April the 1th and finish on April the 8th.

Noblegarden is a short event, in the sense that you can complete it entirely and obtain all the rewards in a matter of a few hours.

1.3. Locations

Noblegarden quests givers and vendors can be found in the following low level towns:

  • Alliance
    • Azure Watch in Azuremyst Isle
    • Dolanaar in Teldrassil
    • Goldshire in Elwynn Forest
    • Kharanos in Dun Morogh
  • Horde
    • Bloodhoof Village in Mulgore
    • Brill in Tirisfal Glades
    • Falconwing Square in Eversong Woods
    • Razorhill in Durotar

Collecting Brightly Colored Egg Icon Brightly Colored Eggs will also be done in these towns.

1.4. Currency

The currency of the event is Noblegarden Chocolate Icon Noblegarden Chocolate. You get these chocolates in Brightly Colored Egg Icon Brightly Colored Eggs, at a rate of 1 Noblegarden Chocolate per egg. You can use this currency to buy the rewards of the events, as well as the items you need for some of the achievements (these items also have a chance to be contained in Brightly Colored Egg Icon Brightly Colored Eggs).

2. Rewards

In addition to the various vanity items needed for the achievements and the achievements themselves, Noblegarden offers three rewards:

2.1. Vanity Items

At each Noblegarden location, you will find Noblegarden Vendors (Alliance) and Noblegarden Merchants (Horde). These NPCs sell many vanity items, most of which are required for completing the achievements.

Vanity Item Cost Related Achievement
Noblegarden Egg Icon Noblegarden Egg 5 Noblegarden Chocolate Icon Noble Garden Icon Noble Garden (Alliance / Horde)
Blossoming Branch Icon Blossoming Branch 10 Noblegarden Chocolate Icon Hard Boiled Icon Hard Boiled
Black Tuxedo Pants Icon Black Tuxedo Pants 25 Noblegarden Chocolate Icon Blushing Bride Icon Blushing Bride
White Tuxedo Shirt Icon White Tuxedo Shirt 25 Noblegarden Chocolate Icon Blushing Bride Icon Blushing Bride
Elegant Dress Icon Elegant Dress 50 Noblegarden Chocolate Icon Blushing Bride Icon Blushing Bride
Spring Circlet Icon Spring Circlet 50 Noblegarden Chocolate Icon  
Spring Circlet Icon Black Spring Circlet 50 Noblegarden Chocolate Icon  
Spring Circlet Icon Pink Spring Circlet 50 Noblegarden Chocolate Icon  
Spring Flowers Icon Spring Flowers 50 Noblegarden Chocolate Icon Shake Your Bunny-Maker Icon Shake Your Bunny-Maker
Spring Robes Icon Spring Robes 50 Noblegarden Chocolate Icon Desert Rose Icon Desert Rose

2.2. Achievements

The meta-achievement of the event is Noble Gardener Icon Noble Gardener. It rewards the the Noble title, counts towards What a Long, Strange Trip It's Been Icon What a Long, Strange Trip It's Been, and requires you to complete most of the achievements related to the event:

3. Quests

Spring Collectors (Alliance) and Spring Gatherers (Horde) are the introductory quests of the event. You can take them from commoners in any Capital City.

This introductory quest is to be turned in at the Noblegarden location of your choice. There, you will be able to take two other quests:

4. Collecting Eggs

Eggs can only be found in low level towns where you will find Noblegarden NPCs. To collect the eggs efficiently, you need to make extensive use of your Egg Basket Icon Egg Basket, which is a reward for A Tisket, a Tasket, a Noblegarden Basket (Alliance / Horde). Our advice is to place the item on your action bar, in the place of an ability bound to one of your mouse buttons. This makes it easier to refresh the increased speed buff.

After opening a few Brightly Colored Egg Icon Brightly Colored Eggs, you will be turned into a rabbit for 60 minutes. This is mainly a cosmetic effect. As a rabbit, you can lay eggs by standing still for a while, something that you will need for Hard Boiled Icon Hard Boiled, one of the achievements.

One last piece of advice is to set, in your Video/Effects settings, Environment Detail to lowest. This will make it easier to see the eggs.

5. Achievements

In this section, we will run you through all the Noblegarden achievements.

5.1. While Collecting Eggs

Many achievements can be earned while opening Brightly Colored Egg Icon Brightly Colored Eggs.

5.1.1. I Found One!

I Found One! Icon I Found One! is arguably the easiest achievement of the event. You simply need to open a Brightly Colored Egg Icon Brightly Colored Egg, something that you will do countless times.

5.1.2. Chocolate Lover and Chocoholic

Chocolate Lover Icon Chocolate Lover and Chocoholic Icon Chocoholic require you to loot a total of 100 Noblegarden Chocolate Icon Noblegarden Chocolates from Brightly Colored Egg Icon Brightly Colored Egg and eat them.

5.1.3. Dressed for the Occasion

Dressed for the Occasion Icon Dressed for the Occasion will be granted to you if you loot an Elegant Dress Icon Elegant Dress from a Brightly Colored Egg Icon Brightly Colored Egg. You will not get the achievement if you buy the Elegant Dress from a vendor.

Note that this achievement does not count towards Noble Gardener Icon Noble Gardener, the meta-achievement.

5.1.4. Sunday's Finest

Sunday's Finest Icon Sunday's Finest will be granted to you if you loot Black Tuxedo Pants Icon Black Tuxedo Pants and a White Tuxedo Shirt Icon White Tuxedo Shirt from a Brightly Colored Egg Icon Brightly Colored Egg. You will not get the achievement if you buy these two items from a vendor.

Note that this achievement does not count towards Noble Gardener Icon Noble Gardener, the meta-achievement.

5.2. Remaining Achievements

The remaining achievements are presented below. We tried to rank from the least complicated to the most complicated.

5.2.1. Noble Garden

Completing Noble Garden Icon Noble Garden (Alliance / Horde) requires you to acquire 5 Noblegarden Chocolate Icon and use them to buy a Noblegarden Egg Icon Noblegarden Egg from a vendor. Then go to Stormwind City, if you play Alliance, or Silvermoon City, if you play Horde, right click the egg and select the area where you want to lay it.

After laying the egg (and subsequently getting the achievement), you can open it and loot its content.

5.2.2. Blushing Bride

The easiest way to complete Blushing Bride Icon Blushing Bride is to ask a friend or a guildie to help you. Give them the Elegant Dress Icon Elegant Dress (if they do not have one), ask them to put it on. Then, put on your own White Tuxedo Shirt Icon White Tuxedo Shirt and Black Tuxedo Pants Icon Black Tuxedo Pants, and kiss them.

Note that if you are missing one of the 3 required items, you can buy them from a Noblegarden vendor in exchange for Noblegarden Chocolate Icon Noblegarden Chocolates.

5.2.3. Desert Rose

To complete Desert Rose Icon Desert Rose, you need to buy Spring Robes Icon Spring Robes for 50 Noblegarden Chocolate Icon from a Noblegarden vendor. Note that you can use this item multiple times, so do not make the mistake of buying several of them.

Once you have Spring Robes Icon Spring Robes, simply go successively to The Badlands, Desolace, Silithus, Tanaris, and Thousand Needles. In each region, use your Spring Robes. It does not matter where you plant the flower, as long as you are in the proper zone.

5.2.4. Hard Boiled

Hard Boiled Icon Hard Boiled requires you to lay an egg at Golakka Hot Springs in Un'Goro Crater. In order to lay an egg, you need to be transformed into a rabbit and stand still for about a minute.

During Noblegarden, there are two ways to get transformed into a rabbit:

  • by opening Brightly Colored Egg Icon Brightly Colored Eggs, in which case you need to either
    • hearthstone to Marshal's Stand (in northern Un'Goro Crater) and then go to Golakka Hot Springs without losing your rabbit buff;
    • run all the way to Golakka Hot Springs without losing your rabbit buff.
  • by being the target of a Blossoming Branch Icon Blossoming Branch, in which case you simply need to bring a friend with you to Golakka Hot Springs and ask them to use Blossoming Branch Icon Blossoming Branch on you.

Note that you will lose your rabbit buff if you take damage, be it from an enemy attack or from a fall.

5.2.5. Spring Fling

For Spring Fling Icon Spring Fling (Alliance/ Horde), you need to first acquire a Spring Rabbit's Foot Icon Spring Rabbit's Foot, which you can loot from a Brightly Colored Egg Icon Brightly Colored Egg or buy from a Noblegarden vendor for 100 Noblegarden Chocolate Icon. We advise you to complete this achievement last, as it can be frustrating to buy the Spring Rabbit's Foot only to see it drop later from a Brightly Colored Egg.

Then, you need to visit the 4 Noblegarden locations of your faction. In each location, you need to get the pet out and find another player with the same pet. Obviously, it makes it a lot easier if you do the achievement with a friend or a guildie.

5.2.6. Shake Your Bunny Maker

To complete Shake Your Bunny-Maker Icon Shake Your Bunny-Maker, you need to use Spring Flowers Icon Spring Flowers, which you can loot from a Brightly Colored Egg Icon Brightly Colored Egg or buy from a Noblegarden vendor for 50 Noblegarden Chocolate Icon, on female characters of each race. The targeted characters must be level 18 at least.

The hard part of the achievement is getting characters of the other faction.

  • Low level characters will have a hard time doing it but hanging around in the Vale of Eternal Blossoms might do the trick.
  • For characters over level 60, it is possible to use your flying mount to get the achievement. Simply fly over a capital city of the other faction (Orgrimmar and Stormwind City preferably). Whenever you have a target, swoop down on it, use the flowers (this will not dismount you), and fly up as fast as you can.

To make it even easier, you can use the following macro (credit to WoWWiki):

/run DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage((UnitSex("target")==2 and "Male " or "Female ")..UnitLevel("target").." "..UnitRace("target").." "..(UnitBuff("target","Sprung!")=="Sprung!" and "Sprung!" or "clear"));

Select a target and click the macro. It will check whether the target is a female and will also tell you if the target has been recently targeted by another player's Spring Flowers Icon Spring Flowers, in which case you will not be able to complete the objective.
