    Default [Video] Short guide to the 2011 Easter egghunt event

    Since they updated the marketplace and changed a couple egg locations, I did a video to show some of the new ones and a decent route to knock it out quickly.

    I know there's already tons of these silly videos on youtube, but they are all for the old version of the event, so I made an updated one.

    Basic Route:
    Head towards the Binders residence quest - there's 2 gold eggs up there. Then towards the center of the market, 1 gold around there. Then off towards the twelve corner, where theres tons of silvers, and 1 gold.. Then loop around near the Chronoscope quest giver and grab a few coppers and the final gold you need for the ultimate aura.

    Anwayys, video shows the route better then I can type it, so check it out:

    Presented in full 1080p HD quality as always - click here.

    Tho it's slightly below my usual standards as the marketplace just runs really badly on my machine for some reason lately... Slightly lower fps (20ish vs the standard 29.97). But still smooth enough.

    BTW: Yea the time won't be easy to emulate on non-favored soul/monk/barb/other very fast character.. But the route should still be doable even on a level1 mule within the 3 minute time limit, youd just want to have someone toss you a haste/jump to make it easy.

    is there any way you could create a map showing the route and where the eggs are? its a little bit hard to follow because you move so fast. thanks

    I uploaded a video of this year's hunt, which you can do with plenty of time left over, on a non hasted, non jumped character. Also, it should be easier to follow, as it's much slower and less FVS frenetic.

    Nice video. Tho i dunno if it's neccasrily easier to follow, Video quality is a bit low (480p, 4:3), so its harder to make out what color eggs your getting at times. And far as slower being better, mm i dunno, you can always pause my video and rewind to check what u might of missed by my flying around so fast heh. Maybe better for ppl unwilling to ask for haste or jump i guess (tho really guys, its a mmo, be a bit social and send a tell to a friendly wizard by checking the who list, filtering to wizards, and finding one hanging out in the marketplace)

    Wasn't aware of your thread.

    Also it's hardly a copy, since my video is presented in max quality 1080P HD.. And yours is well..... No comment

    Recommend you guys check out my video encoding guide here:

    That's much appreciated, Shade, as you can undoubtedly tell by my two whole DDO videos, youtube is not my natural playground! I'll check it out... and I do agree about getting buffs from someone. Usually if you stand at the egg guy for a minute, someone is just handing them out.

    But, that's not always the case, and I've got a dozen mules that I still like to take a moment to run around, because it's fast and a good break from work, so I try to find the no brainer path.
