On top of that, giant Colored Eggs are once again sprouting from the ground. You also break these open for Surprise Eggs and chocolate. And both the chests and, on rare occasions, the Colored Eggs may themselves contain a particularly special type of egg. That is if you get lucky enough.
Rites of Spring delivers a Rabbit, but no ordinary Rabbit. Rumors have been circulating throughout Albion Online. While a strange, never before seen entity with unique powers bounding across the lands. And after much searching, it can be confirmed that there is indeed a brand new creature out there. Hence, the Spring Cottontail.
This is a rare, speedy, Tier 8 mount with a special Hop ability. And is sure to be widely coveted within the Rites of Spring.
