Sky Serpent Egg spawns

General Discussion
So I know the spawn rate was way too high at first. I can tell by all of the people flying around on cloud serpents. But now I think the spawn rate is way too low. It's a real pain when I've got so few quests to do for rep. I'm not asking for free rep, but as it is now, the chances of finding an egg are so slim that I'll likely be nearly exalted by the time I find my first egg. All I'm asking for is a spawn rate of maybe something like one egg per ten minutes. There's still a chance to find them, but with all of the people trying to get their Cloud Serpents, they will likely go fast so you won't end up with people getting a ton of eggs and just egg farming their way to exalted.
Long term rep grinds are long.

Seriously, it's gonna take you all of two weeks to finish it? If that?

SLOW DOWN!
I only found 4 eggs over the entire release time so far and will hit exalted with the Cloud Serpent faction Monday. Just do dailys, you will hit exalted pretty fast event without eggs.
Yeah, I'm glad I did it like the day after the expansion came out.

Fishing, cooking, and first aid give you access to additional dailies. Similar to how gathering professions gave you extra dailies for the Netherwing grind.

and archeology
Yep, I get 7 a day.
all of which i couldnt be bothered to level cause i dont need them and found them a pain in the butt to level

cooking: major gaps at certain skill levels where theres nothing to cook but a green recipe 10 million times to many or fly to some god forsaken hole in the ground to get some useless recipe that shoulda been on the trainer ntm i never ever eat anything cept vendor bought food(easiest way out) only reason i even leveled my cooking was to do the tiller dailies cause i find that little farmville game fun although i wish all the plants had different growing speeds

archeology: 1st toon i leveled this to 525 was the last toon ill ever level this profession on. shocked i didnt give up before 525. do 2 spots on this end of the map then fly alllllllllllllll the way to the other end do 2 spots then repeat repeat repeat awe F IT i give up. i got my dino mount and thats all i wanted from it. will never do it again.

first aid: have never ever found any use for it on any toon. i just eat my vendor food. personally i think its a waste of cloth that i can ah or send to my tailor

fishing my 2nd most hated PITA profession. i got better things to do then fish in a video game staring at a stupid bobber waiting for it to pop
Was the spawn rate actually tweaked? Or is it just that more people are searching for them now? I assumed it was the latter, but I'll admit I've been too engrossed in playing to bother keeping up with hotfix info.
I've only found one egg so far.

I think Blizz dropped the ball on the respawn time. They had it set way too high in the beginning and now they swung the respawn time too far in the other direction.
*snipped*


Have fun with your longer rep grind then.

I keep seeing people claim it was hotfixed, but nothing was announced (yet). It's a lot more likely that eggs are more scarce because a lot more people are out and about looking for them instead of Blizzard curtailing the spawn rate... however, I wouldn't put it past them to nerf it so it's a possibility.
The 3 Cloud Serpent dailies your referring to alone give more rep total then the 8 Klaxxi dailies.

I would say that is a fair trade off.

Curious how long it took you to find that egg too... I haven't made that much of an effort because Tich is such a high pop server that eggs are constantly camped. I don't feel like spending hours of my day going in circles on a mount in order to get my pixel dragon earlier.. but some people are down with it.
Uhhh I'm 3 days away from exalted... Haven't turned in a single egg.

i had nothing else to do cause all my dailies pandaria wide was done. just spent 6 hours doing mindless circles and only got 1 egg. time for bed now but once my dailies are done when i get up ill do it again cause this is the only way to getting the alani mount which is my ultimate goal here

once i get that ive gotten everything i want outa this expax so far :D till i get my eye on something else. till then it will be getting the rest of my 30 something toons to 90 that i currently got from level 60 to 85
The spawn rate remains unchanged

As more people see others on cloud serpents they discover that this faction even exists, and fly out to Jade Forest to begin their reputation grind

The more and more people out there doing dailies/farming eggs, the less and less of these eggs you will see. There are only a lot of cloud serpents right now because it's something new, and those who got there first got all the eggs they needed in a short while.

Eventually these will be like nether rays and netherwing drakes.

Good luck on Alani... gathering all those crystals seems like it will be a loooooong grind, and require quite a bit of luck.

i got no problem with the grind what so ever. unfortanatly my 90 atm is druid but i work on my now 86 pally when i get the chance to so he will definatly be the 1 to grind that out. guy on there says he killed 120k mobs. my pallys already grabbing the whole jade forest, yelling at runbacks and waiting for respawns lol gotta LOVE prot :D once he hits 90 ill probably flatten that 120k mobs in couple days. hope the mount will be account wide. i like grinds like that on my pally. the only reason he even grabs quests is to point him towards some path of destruction. kill everything on way to there. kill everything there. kill everything on way back. i was even yelling at a mob the other day "i dont fight 1 on 1 go back and get 25 of your buddies then come annoy me." lol

atm though druid bird has got me hooked. wanted 1 forever even though he sat at 75 forever till just before mop. finally leveled him cause i needed to up his inscription and that bird forms really got me hooked so i havent stopped playing him yet. love those suicide mid air drops to buff myself or cast rejuv LOL ntm the killer orca looks AWSOME. mabey i try guardian spec but i love my kitty to much for him

I never want to grind anything like that ever again.

Thank goodness for account wide mounts.
