[edit] Overview

Route for maximum aura, requires high Jump skill
Alternate route for maximum aura, requires no buffs

Purchase Tokens of the Traveler and visit an NPC Taj <Festival Egg Collector> in the Marketplace. Players are tasked to do the "Egg Run" within the Marketplace area, where you collect special Eggs that are visible only while the game and "Traveler's Sight" buff is on.

The game has time limit of 3 minutes, so you have to figure out efficient paths, jump up, poke around and find highly-valued Gold Eggs and such. Depending on the amount of eggs and points you have gathered, you build up an Aura-style buffs, you then turn these Aura in to Taj to claim your reward. The Aura doesn't immediately expire when the game is over, so there is no need to go back to her within the time limit.

Rewards are separated in two category ("standard" and "special") and are also tiered by the magnitude of the Aura but randomly distributed. i.e. Taj determines what you receive, you cannot choose from a list or anything. Standard reward is just a common random loot (weapons/armors/jewelry) that is appropriate for your character level. Special reward requires you to turn in Blessing of the Traveler together, and you receive various Store-items listed below. Unless you're using free tickets, all this is basically like gambling with your Turbine Points.

Cost
Token of the Traveler 20 TP
Token of the Traveler x3 50 TP
Token of the Traveler x5 80 TP
Token of the Traveler x10 150 TP
Blessing of the Traveler 200 TP


[edit] Aura levels

Your prize will depend on the level of the aura you achieve. Eggs are worth aura points:

The aura levels are:

  • I (Minor) = 1 aura point
  • II (Lesser) = 15 aura points
  • III (Greater) = 23 aura points
  • IV (Major) = 33 aura points
  • V (Ultimate) = 43 aura points
Bronze Egg = 1 aura point
Silver Egg = 2 aura points
Gold Egg = 3 aura points

[edit] Eberron lore about "the Traveler"

The Traveler is one of the deities counted among a pantheon known as the Dark Six, though he's not known as a god of evil. A chaotic being that favors change, he is the patron god of travelers, and many adventurers and wanderers pray to him for safe journeys or blessings on their voyages. It is said that the Traveler is a being of many disguises, roaming the lands where and when you least suspect him. Known as the "Giver of Gifts," this god of creations and artifice can be as mischievous as he is mysterious, giving rise to the old adage "Beware the gifts of the Traveler".

Rank Reward
Ultimate + Blessing:
  • Common reward (90% of the time):
    • 2 Potions of Supreme Ability (BTC, +2 all stats)
  • Rare rewards:
  • Very rare:
    • 5 Greater Siberys Spirit Cakes (BTA, True Resurrection)
Major + Blessing:
  • Common reward (90% of the time):
    • 2 Medium XP Elixir (BTA, +10% 6 hours duration)
  • Rare rewards:
    • Anvil of the Efreeti Forgemaster (BTA, expert repairer, lasts 3 minutes)
    • 5 Greater XP Elixirs (BTA, +20% 3 hours duration)
Greater + Blessing:
  • Common reward (90% of the time):
    • 2 Potions of Wonder (can be defensive or offensive, unbound)
  • Rare rewards:
Blessing with no aura:
  • 1 Siberys Spirit Cake (BTA, Resurrection)
Blessing turn it after the event is over:

Note:

  • Hearts of Wood and Rods of Teleport do not seem to be on Taj's loot table this time (link).
  • The Ultimate Aura DDO Store reward is usually 2 Potions of Supreme Ability (Bind to Character, 10 minutes of +2 to all abilities), whereas the Major Aura reward is usually 2 Medium Experience Elixirs (Bind to Account, 6 hours of 10% XP boost), so it is currently much better to use your Blessing of the Traveler on Major Aura, not Ultimate Aura.
  • As you can see, for most players (those who desire XP) the major aura tends to offer the best blessing reward on average. For the normal (random loot) rewards, Ultimate Aura is better than Major Aura as each higher aura increase the loot level you get - it goes all the way up to loot level 23, thus has a small chance to reward +3 unbound tomes. The formula uses your character level + aura to determine rewards, so run it on a level20 and go for ultimate for the best random gear.
