The season of Growth is upon us, and creatures celebrate the blessings of the Mother of All. You won't need to be a Tunare worshipper to join in this quick little celebration, however!
The third annual Beast'r Eggstravaganza will run on the live servers from 12:01 am Pacific on April 19, 2019 until 11:59 pm Pacific on April 25, 2019. (I told you it would be quick!). The Fallen Gate TLE server will also have the event running, while the new Kaladim TLE server will not.
I am going to cover the new-this year points first, then I will go into details from the overall event.
These items will be for sale on "Beast'r Eggschanger" NPCs in Qeynos Province District (Elddar Grove area), Freeport, Darklight Wood, Greater Faydark, Timorous Deep, and Frostfang Sea, but there's a catch. The Corrupted Witherlands Faun Plushie will only be sold on the "evil" side (Freeport, DLW, Timorous Deep), and the Witherlands Faun Plushie will only be sold on the "good" side (Qeynos, GFay, Frostfang). This doesn't stop a good aligned person from going to Timorous and buying the corrupted one, or an evil alt from hitting up Frostfang Sea, for example. It just means you'll be doing a little traveling if you want the full set.

While asking a guard for "Beast" worked in the past to sometimes chase down the loose eggs, it will have even more mixed results this year. Not only will they point to the nearest loose egg, but if someone has out one of the egg fluff pets or the new Mischievous Beastie familiar from the Anchorage quests you will end up pointed to them if they are closer. Asking them for "Eggschanger", however, will help you find the vendor if you're in one of the six above-listed zones.
There is one new 9-piece collection this year. As has happened with several other events, you will need to visit multiple locations in order to obtain all the collection pieces. Reward for the collection is a Large Beast'r Egg Basket.
Want a closer look at those baskets and the sizing on the fauns? Ocarinah has you covered in her 2019 Beast'r House Item Preview. Thanks ma'am!
Having a hard time keeping track of which alts still need eggs for the achievements, or who hasn't finished the collection? Casdoe from Maj'Dul has put together a quick little quest tracker for this event in both XLS format and in pdf format. Thanks!
Here's what Kaitheel had to say about the event last year:
Each year, at the beginning of the season of Growth, Tunare whispers to the animals of the forest to let them know that the season is about to start – it is her Promise to them. In their excitement, the animals begin behaving exuberantly, looking forward to the gifts of nature that come along with the season of renewal. The small animals especially are excited (squirrels, rabbits, birds, foxes, and the like), because this is when they either look for mates or bring out their young for the first time. You don't have to be a druid or a fellow worshiper of Tunare to celebrate the season of Growth, for all are welcome!
The basic premise of this little event is that there are beast'r eggs hopping around the cities and starter areas in Norrath, and you get to try to hunt them down and grab them. If you manage to grab one, you get an heiroom fluff pet "gem" (scroll) of the egg. There are also"Beast'r Eggschanger" NPCs in Qeynos Province District (Elddar Grove area), Freeport, Darklight Wood, Greater Faydark, Timorous Deep, and Frostfang Sea. This NPC will let you trade in the heirloom fluff pet gem for a housepet version. They also, starting in 2019, have a few new buyables, as mentioned at the top of the page.
There are 11 collectible fluff pet scrolls to collect:

There are two hidden achievements for this event, one of which was added in 2017, and one of which was added in 2018:
Is it just me, or does this Eggschanger in New Halas have a "Spring? What spring?" look on his face?
