This is a seasonal solo task. It begins with Grundle Cogwelder in the Plane of Knowledge (found in the vicinity of the Soulbinder).

You say, 'Hail, Grundle Cogwelder'

Grundle Cogwelder says 'I don't [believe] it.'

You say, 'You don't believe what?'

Grundle Cogwelder says 'The [rumor].'

You say, 'What rumor?'

Grundle Cogwelder says 'The rumor that [rabbits] come from eggs. We all know that rabbits bear live children, not eggs.'

You say, 'Rabbits come from eggs?'

Grundle Cogwelder says 'Yes. I am being told that rabbits come from eggs. This cannot be. Can you go [investigate] this for me?'

You say, 'I will investigate'

Grundle Cogwelder says 'Thank you. I have seen some interesting eggs here. I have also seen some as you go away from Qeynos toward Rathe Mountains.'

You have been assigned the task 'The Origin of the Cuniculus'

Grundle Cogwelder wants you to confirm the rumors that bunnies come from eggs. Go find eggs in the Plane of Knowledge and some of the area moving away from Qeynos.

The eggs are definitely spawning in Qeynos Hills, West Karana, and South Karana on Phinny. However, this only gives you the Crosshatched, Tiled, Sunburst, and Patterned eggs. The Toothed, Striped, Wavy, and Dotted eggs spawn in PoK and these are currently not spawning.

There is a fix for this, however it will have to wait until they patch again.

A bunch of bunnies appeared in the starting area of Crescent Reach on 3/31/15. Grundle did not appear today but schedule to appear 4/1/15. I am guessing that CR will be another location for eggs this year.

Edit: Confirmed - no eggs in CR.

I found 4 different eggs in PoK. They were in all of the buildings on the good side and a few outside of the buildings around the portal stones. There were several in the library on the main level as well as outside of the library on the same main level. I found them in the buildings in the neutral area, but did not find any around the vendor buildings or on the evil side. Not sure if that was just my bad luck or what.

Headed out to Q Hills and found them around the first hut, the undead ruins, and Rivervale, but only 1 was different from PoK. Up to 5 now.

Ran into WK and looked around the 2 guard towers on the way to the Miller farm (found 1). Miller farm was full of them. Found about a dozen in no time at all, but still missing the tiled egg.

Ran through NK but didnt really look for eggs into SK. I went to the centaur village twice and did not find a single egg. There is a wizard spire between Centaurs and Split Paw that had a couple of eggs - one on top of it that was a tiled egg. At Split Paw there were 8 or so around the perimeter of the little hills at the entrance. Still looking for a tiled egg on my other character so I head to the aviaks. Found a couple on the way up the ramps and found the last egg I needed at the top level.

If you move quickly through the areas and keep moving this takes about an hour. No xp, just the wand as the reward and the achievement.

Ok seems when the farm is almost void of eggs the are spawning in the fishing village. So when one spot runs out go to the other.

Madness of Stomple is like getting a toy on Christmas morning... and it works "sometimes"

A. Is it a bunny illusion?
B. Does it create mini-bunnies that if you don't look quick you won't see?
C. Does it do nothing at all?
D. All of the above.

All told I collected a dozen sets of eggs.

In the three zones I did most of my collecting in, I found 4 types of eggs in each zone.

Qeynos Hills & West Karana had all 8 egg types between them. Found some eggs near Lake in QHills and around the house in center of zone, in addition to the general locations listed above.

South Karana had 2 eggs in common with QH and WK each. Wizard Spires had a couple of eggs around it, in addition to centaur village, aviak village and around Paw.

I didn't hunt in PoK since I had all I needed by then, but I suspect PoK and SK have all 8 egg types between them.

Found Striped, Wavy, Dotted and Toothed in PoK in the library and the little around outside the library.

Found alot at the Miller Farm in West Karana, Crosshatched, Sunburst (and I think Wavy and Striped).

Found the rest in South Karana, Tiled and Patterned at the centaur village. There were some at the aviaks but I think they were more camped and that's why I found so many at the centaur village. Also saw a few ground spawns at Splitpaw (I think they were Crosshatched)

I ran around as follows and found all the eggs...

I found four in PoK by running around the outer rim (by the protals) and up around the outside of the library.

I found the other four in South Karana by running around the Centaur camp and up in the Awiak ramps.

I went to the two guard towers, the barbarian fishing village and the fields of the Miller Farm and found all 8. took about 30 mins of making the loop. So, all can be found in one zone.

"Tiled Painted Egg - Qeynos Hills - Found around the hut with Marton Sayer inside it, around the Blackburrow entrance, and around the Surefall Glade entrance."

This is inaccurate. I found this under the aviak bird house in South Karana, not in Qeynos.

Here is the POK spawn point i marked as i was collecting my eggs. the eggs seem to be random on what spawns where, and sometimes there is more than 1 egg in a spot, it is a lot like the housing zone scavenger task, when you get an egg another spawns somewhere else.... I started in SK running each "village" to gather 4 types, then went to qeynos and found 2 more types plus some of the ones i already had got in SK, the last 2 i found in POK..... I ended up with 6 complete sets of eggs by the time i got bored, so finished mine and gave rest to guild for others... enjoy!
