A hard, scaled egg that seems to be alive and almost ready to hatch. It hungers for the magical energies contained in Diretide essences. What comes out will be determined by the type and amount of magic the egg consumes.

It is said (by some elder sage or other) that the hatchlings are highly susceptible, and that each essence exerts a unique influence on the incubating creature. Is there method to this madness? Trial and error, and some comparison of results, will surely reveal the rules of Greevil husbandry.

Greevil Eggs can be bought from the store, traded for, dropped in game, or found in a chest. With an egg, it may be imbued with one of several Essences.

Essences currently can be obtained from certain Treasure Chests, opened from gifts from The Greeviling, or traded for. Every Egg has nine slots for Common Essence (three for Wex, Quas, and Exort each), and different combinations of Essence produce different types of Eggs. Adding Rare Essence produces different effects.

At any time, the Eggs can be hatched to provide the player with a special Greevil courier that corresponds to the combinations of Essences imbued.
