Home > > WoW Noblegarden 2013 Guide (March 31 - April 6)
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.
Noblegarden is a rather simple and short event. You will be spending the majority of your time looking for 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.
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 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.
Noblegarden quests givers and vendors can be found in the following low level towns:
Collecting Brightly Colored Eggs will also be done in these towns.
The currency of the event is Noblegarden Chocolate. You get these chocolates in 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 Eggs).
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||5||Noble Garden (Alliance / Horde)|
|Blossoming Branch||10||Hard Boiled|
|Black Tuxedo Pants||25||Blushing Bride|
|White Tuxedo Shirt||25||Blushing Bride|
|Elegant Dress||50||Blushing Bride|
|Black Spring Circlet||50|
|Pink Spring Circlet||50|
|Spring Flowers||50||Shake Your Bunny-Maker|
|Spring Robes||50||Desert Rose|
The meta-achievement of the event is Noble Gardener. It rewards the the Noble title, counts towards What a Long, Strange Trip It's Been, and requires you to complete most of the achievements related to the event:
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, 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 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, 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.
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 Eggs.
5.1.1. I Found One!
5.1.2. Chocolate Lover and Chocoholic
5.1.3. Dressed for the Occasion
Note that this achievement does not count towards Noble Gardener, the meta-achievement.
5.1.4. Sunday's Finest
Note that this achievement does not count towards 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 (Alliance / Horde) requires you to acquire 5 and use them to buy a 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 is to ask a friend or a guildie to help you. Give them the Elegant Dress (if they do not have one), ask them to put it on. Then, put on your own White Tuxedo Shirt and 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 Chocolates.
5.2.3. Desert Rose
Once you have 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 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:
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 (Alliance/ Horde), you need to first acquire a Spring Rabbit's Foot, which you can loot from a Brightly Colored Egg or buy from a Noblegarden vendor for 100 . 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, you need to use Spring Flowers, which you can loot from a Brightly Colored Egg or buy from a Noblegarden vendor for 50 , 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.
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, in which case you will not be able to complete the objective.
