Onyx Egg Locations


[Order of the Cloud Serpent] Onyx egg locations throughout Windward Isle


Onyx eggs are similar to the Netherwing eggs, they spawn in random locations throughout Windward Isle and you can collect them to hand in for rep with the Cloud Serpent Order (Quest: Onyx to Goodness). They each give 500 rep (525 with guild perk) and currently you can hand them in up to exalted status. They don't sparkle, but they respawn in the same locations.

When can I start picking up the eggs?

You need to be level 90 to access the questline.
Head over to the Arboretum in Eastern Jade Forest, where an npc will send you over to Windward Isle to kill some Saurok and guide cloud serpent hatchlings to their nests. At that point, you can choose the egg colour of your hatchling that you'll be raising over the course of many dailies. Once you have your hatchling and can do the dailies, you'll be able to pick up the onyx eggs on Windward Isle. You can turn them in back at the Arboretum with Elder Anli who will have a blue question mark over her head, for the repeatable quest "Onyx to Goodness".

Server restarts are a good time to find eggs! I found 10 in a swoop-over.  Also some kind anonymous person provided an egg map, it's most likely not accurate yet but it might help too.

Happy searching!

  1. Its very awesome how you screencapped every location, thumbs up for that, but is there a possibility to have it on a map, like your other maps, who show locations of certain "mobs/champions" maps.
    Would save my day, because i really do not understand where every location is ^^.
    Thanks in advance, and sorry for the question.

    1. go grab Gatherer from Curse, once you find an egg it will mark your map automatically, this will mean you still have to look but at least once you have found them they are easy to find again.

      Delete
    2. Or just use Gathermate2 and Gathermate2_data. Import MoP-Data,and you'll see all possible Egg-Locations on your Map and on your Minimap

      Delete
    3. Which MoP Data ?

      Delete
    4. Be sure Always show is on for treasure. You'll find Onxy eggs listed there. There is an option to import data, the drop down menu will specify the expansion (MoP) be sure to have it on merg to save any data you've already collected. Good luck, as of my first day, flew over with 3 toons at various times and haven't spotted an egg yet.

  2. Really nice guide. Can tell you put a bit of effort into this. Thanks :)

  3. Do you need to do pre-quests to be able to pick up the eggs? I've seen a few and i can't loot them for some reason.

    1. The ones your thinking of are for a quest but the ones they are talking about are grayish black and you turn them in for Cloud Serpent rep.

  4. do you know how often they respawn?

    1. I've heard that they don't spawn for 75 mins, but then spawn at random for 45 mins.

  5. you should give us map and cords where you found it. its not easy to find places from pictures. anyt thnx

    ReplyDelete
  6. I've explained why there is no map in the text above. If anyone can put together a large scale map, that would make it possible but I have nothing useful to work with for this tiny place :-( It's really just a matter of flying around the cliffs in circles, and checking the other areas in between.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I understand atm you haven't been able to put a map up cause no one is willing to help i would if i knew how but for the time being is it possible for you to put up the x-y until that time that should help us look on our maps to see the coordinants. Thank you again though for your efforts.

    ReplyDelete
  8. can you show a picture of the hill from far away, so I can tell which one it is..otherwise, its hard to tell where these locations are.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Done, more or less. For the small map in the first pictures, it's the pink mark that counts!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I keep looking and haven't been able to find one.. Is there anything i need to do? i already handed in the quest where you pick a colored dragon egg, which then hatches... damn eggs

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No there's nothing you have to do, but if there's a lot of competition, the eggs are very scarce :-(

      Delete
  11. Very helpful and great guide. These eggs don't show up on the addon Gatherer, so that makes it hard to remember where they spawn.

    However, don't count on grinding rep "in a day or less" this way. They nerfed the spawn rate. Apparently the "quick spawn" of the eggs in beta was a bug and they fixed it, so now not only do the eggs spawn rarely, you have a ton of competition if you're on a medium--large realm. You might as well sit in one spawn point and wait for one to respawn if you hope to find any eggs at any rate whatsoever, or do it in the middle of the night or early morning when not as many people play.

    Say good-bye to your social life (assuming you had one).

    1. They do show on gatherer. be sure to check always show under treasures. You'll notice Onxy eggs are on that list. Then import MoP data, merge. That will show any eggs found by others and add yours to the locations.

      Delete
  12. are you able to collect them if you completed that quest?

    ReplyDelete
  13. It's now 02.48 in the morning. Been around on Windward Isle for about 2-3 hours and have found 5 eggs. It's alot less crowded now, so it's obviously a hot tip to do it at night. Skullcrusher EU.

  14. UPDATE: 03.13 Found another one. Currently encountering an egg about every 15-20 minutes.

  15. It's one egg with a fast respawn, but currently it's in a place no one can find so no one is getting any eggs.

  18. i found 2 in about 2hrs leading up to the server restart but after i came across 3 in a few minutes.

    night before someone claimed 10 RIGHT AFTER the server restart

  19. 4 a.m. I've been looking for 3 hours and there isn't a soul in sight. I'm guessing they nerfed the spawn rate to such an extent that there isn't really any point just looking.

    ReplyDelete
  20. 6:18 am. Looking for three hours, still nothing. Quite depressing.

    ReplyDelete
  21. servers just restarted. I am on a server where im pretty much by myself looking for them, ive noticed that once you find one, another will spawn in one the given locations. I got 16 in about 10minutes, but now i havent found one for the last 15. I think it's in some location i dont know about yet, maybe a cave or something. As soon as I find it, it will go back to spawning in the locations shown here

    ReplyDelete
  22. They really arent worth searching for for or camping. I do a route or two when i do my dailies but nothing besides that. The respawn rate is ridiculously slow not to mention the other searching. I recommend if you must search for them get on one of the mountians before a server restart and get in as fast as you can so you can grab them as they respawn prolly net around 5-10k rep that way

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm from Azralon, and my server is pretty crowded, so every time I tried to hunt these eggs it was impossible, with the extra high competition.
    So... I let them go, and just kept doing my daily quests.
    Tomorrow I'll be exalted with Cloud Serpents.
    Simple like that. ^^

    ReplyDelete
  24. My server has a medium population, but when i was looking for eggs two days ago,there was a high competition...
    BUT: I was faster than they were and found 7 eggs in two hours. Lucky me :) I'm exalted with the Order of the Cloud Serpent.

  25. Idk if it's been mentioned, but I found an egg on top of the tall white pillar at 66:30, keep an eye out for it.

  31. I know everyone says that egg farming has been nerfed so bad it's a waste of time, but I just spent two hours on a Wednesday evening and got 14. That finished me off, so instead of a few more days of dailies, I get to fly my shiny new lizard around. Thanks for the guide. Big help!

    ReplyDelete
  32. This was the easiest rep I've ever done. I just found 11 of them in about 15 minutes. No one around at 3:30 in the morning. Restart in a few hrs so I'll come back and try that too. You hardly need a map. they're pretty easy to spot on this little island.

  33. repped all the way to exalted, and got my cloud serpent in a day with this guide!!!thanks worked great!! low pop server so i got about 28 today

    ReplyDelete
  34. on my server during the weekdays, late night US, there's no one there. i was able to fly around for about 3 hours in a circuit without interruption and it appears the respawn rate is quite random. in 3 hours, i never once saw it spawn more than 4 eggs at one time. in between, the eggs would spawn quite randomly in 1's and 2's in the various marked locs on that above map.

    that being said, one egg sent me over to revered, whereby i bought the 100% rep increase item from the panda near the kite master. thereafter, each egg was giving me 1100 rep (+550 bonus). i ding exhalted with the eggs i collected over 3 hours after i did the new set of quests that opened at revered.

    looking for the eggs, set environmental detail & ground clutter to low. also, move a distance away from the plateu where the eggs spawn. there is a point where all the grass will dissappear completely. if the egg is there, it will show on your screen without the grass/bush. you're also able to see the eggs from quite a distance away so you don't need to fly up to the actual spawn points to check if they spawned.

    ReplyDelete
  35. well I just got 11 eggs in an hour and a half spawn slowed down to a crawl so i went turned them in made some food came back 30 mins later and in the first 10 mins I now have 6 in my bag O.o

    ReplyDelete
  36. Great post! Hit exalted in 5 days of dailies + egg hunting

    ReplyDelete
  37. I don't know if I'm lucky or what but I was barely into revered and so each egg was 1200 rep or so with racial and guild perk and double rep because of the commendation. Anyway I went to wowhead to see if there were any quests I missed (My brother hit revered ages ago so I went from neutral to exalted in one day) and I learned about the onyx eggs, then I just flew around and gathered about 16 in less than 10 minutes, handed them in, and voila .. exalted. It was 4 am server time on a Monday so maybe that had to do with it.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Can you find the same eggs over and over again?

  39. I got 25 eggs today thanks to this guide :)

  50. Random dude here, I would like to say your map is very invaluable. Thank you so much for putting in the time to make this. :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. great guide, shame they are always being farmed, and if you cant tell where they are from a picture do us all a favor and uninstall the game

    ReplyDelete
  52. Great! However it's very hard to see on the pictures where it actually is. I mean, most cliff looks the same and the map on the pictures is too small.
    Unless most people here I have not spend large amount of time on this little isle.

    Again, it's great that you put effort into something like this but the pictures feels like small clues how to find it instead of showing "here is it".

  53. I was getting tired of the grind to Exalted, and found this blog ... 4 eggs in about 6 or 7 minutes topped off my rep and got me my Cloud Serpent!

  56. Took awhile for me to find any, my server is pretty busy Sen'Jin US, but I've found four so far and I'm not giving up, I only need 4 more to get exaulted, but I might go try getting a quivering firestorm from Houlon, which would put me close to be there, I've got the 100% increase so this will take me no time.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Thanks for the guide. I'm late to Cloud Serpent rep as I came back after 4 years away from the game. It only took me a day to get Exalted. They must have made this rep easier at some point, because it was a joke compared to Netherwing which took a couple weeks...not that I'm complaining. Onyx Eggs seem much more plentiful as well. I collected about 25 in one evening, plus a few hours the next morning using your guide.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Thanks for the guide! As of today, it's still working.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Amazing and ever so helpful!! In 15 minutes I was half-way through Honoured for just a couple eggs and dailies. I have a smallish server IMO, but i'm going to guess the respawn times are between 30-45 minutes per egg, or they spawn in random groups of 5-6 over the spots you pointed out.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Not working anymore. Eggs are anywhere but where they used to be. I think they randomly appear.

  61. havent seen any eggs..did they nerf this?
