Tribes of Midgard Golden Egg: How to get the Golden Egg rune

The Tribes of Midgard Golden Egg is a bit of a mystery at present.

It’s one of many Tribes of Migard runes, but unlike most, the Golden Egg seems to have little effect on your stats. In fact, it seems to have little effect at all, though there is one useful thing you can do with it.

Obtaining the Golden Egg is the same as obtaining any rune, which means it’s completely random. You might come across one in a chest or as an enemy drop, or you can always spend Golden Horns to try and get a Golden Egg.

Since there’s no immediate benefit to the egg, though, we don’t recommend doing that. Golden Horns are hard enough to come by, so it’s best to save them for something more useful.

That’s the golden question. The only thing we know for sure so far is you can sell the Golden Egg for 200 souls, which is a bit underwhelming. Souls are vital, but hardly uncommon.

Some players noted an increase in Roosters of Ragnarok while holding the Golden Egg, but the rooster rate seems to be the same as when you don’t have the Egg. Others found more Golden Horns if you exited a game using Bifrost instead of ending it the normal way. Whatever multiplier effect it has, if any, seems completely random though.

It’s also worth noting Midgard has no evident way to hatch eggs, so you’re probably fine not to keep it.

In short, if you get the Golden Egg, just hawk it for souls and enjoy the temporary advantage it gives you.
