If you're looking for something to do, I hear there are mages in the settlements near capital cities - Razor Hill, Brill, Bloodhoof Village, and Falconwing Square - who have been recruiting egg hunters for help with some research they're doing. I'm not sure of the particulars, but I'm sure they'd tell you.
Yes! Yes, I think I have just the task for you...
- Patch 3.1.0 (14-Apr-2009): Added.
