You’ve been waiting all year, and now it’s here! The annual AdventureQuest 3D DuckyDucky Easter Hunt is on! Though it’s after Easter, we’re keeping the spirit of the holidays going with the third iteration of the contest this next week!
I know it’s been hard waiting for a chance to adopt your very own cuddly yellow floofball. How can you not feel like a ball of sunshine is following you on your adventures with your own DuckyDucky? But your chance is here! NOW! And (nearly) all of Lore is where the magic will happen. These little ducklettes have been growing adorable and huggable just for you.
Like last year, a total of four more yellow DuckyDucky pets will be given away during this hunt. (And also like last year, that does not count any won live on the MJTV stream on Friday, 23 April 2021.) And as a special this year, we will also add in at least two Cape O’ DuckyDuckys to the prize pool. If you’ve participated previously, the rules haven’t changed. However, I am sure a reminder is good for everyone. Your task: Find where Sir DuckyDucky is hiding out and snap yourself a screenshot with him. This screenshot is your entry for the drawing! Remember, Sir DuckyDucky is still pretty new so he will only hide out in places that a low-level character can get to.
One difference for 2021 is that Sir DuckyDucky he will be jumping servers to give many a chance! So listen to clues carefully — he might jump in the middle of a hunt!
Here are the hunt times:
2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. EDT on Saturday, 17 April 2021
12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. EDT on Tuesday, 20 April 2021 (cancelled, sorry!)
8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. EDT on Thursday, 22 April 2021 (added!)
7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. EDT on Thursday, 22 April 2021
12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. EDT on Friday, 23 April 2021 (added!)
When you find him, take a screenshot of him — that is your ticket to enter. Make sure Sir DuckyDucky’s name is visible in said pic! Those can be sent to @MJ_Guthrie on Twitter (#DuckyDuckyHunt) or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include your in-game name!! All entries have an equal chance of winning (except for those who have already one; you cannot win a second time).
Once he is found by a few, Sir DuckyDucky will sneak away to a new spot! If no one has found him, clues will be shared periodically both on Twitter and here on this post. Remember, no one can go to him as his friends list is completely blank! And you may not be too eager to share where you found him since the more who join the raffle, the lower your chances of winning become.
To give folks time to get their emails in, the final tally will be counted first thing Monday morning, 26 April 2021. That list will be posted here. Then, during a special MJTV stream during the afternoon (date and time TBD, Possibly even the 26th), the winners will be determined by a spin of a LFS prize wheel. You don’t need to be present to win (that’s why you add your in-game name). Remember, previous DuckyDucky winners are not eligible to win another, nor can they win to trade the pet.
Good luck everyone, and may the Quack be with you!
