Took me about 4.5 hours to complete the meta for this, and some of that time was spent waiting for a female troll to magically appear somewhere in Dalaran (Tauren as well, though one showed up and was kind enough NOT to run for the hills as soon as about 20 people raced over to jam some rabbit ears on her head; she was able to find some humor in the situation, and stuck around for a little while).I was one of the egg campers, and while I didn't find this way as enjoyable as actually hunting for them, I found that it was really the only way to get this thing accomplished. The fact that they made the spawn points only possible within the newbie towns themselves is the very thing that made the event less enjoyable than I felt it could have been.As much as some of the points seemed occasionally ingenious, there simply weren't enough of them. It was less of an Egg Hunt, and more of an Egg Lottery. If it had been out in the wild, the eggs could have been much more spread out and actual movement would have been required.Granted, it WAS day 1, and the event HAD just begun (I logged in 15 minutes after the hour, and it took me a little bit to figure out - they're in the towns this year rather than scattered about the countryside). I anticipate egg camping will be less required as the week passes, as most of these holiday events tend to wind up as the days go by.I've done the meta on my main in Azure Watch, and found a 4 spawn in Kharanos for my mage who got about 105 eggs just so she could purchase the polymorph spell. I've stopped after that, since I don't want these achievements on any other chars, and the egg lottery's fierce enough for it to be plain old rude to compete for the suckers against others who actually want to get at least 1 meta achievement for their mains.
