So I started out the event by scouting Shockroach: nothing.
Then, upon scouring the forums and digging through that "GE tracker" thread, I found that Landshark had a golden egg. I joined up with a random gaian through /w and helped take out the egg.
Aaaaaand: I got a fortunes favour ring!
With the excess of orbs i got from doing Duneslam, I managed to level it to CL 10 in one go. So now hopefully dropping DMS loot will be better.
