<div></div><div>Carpenters can make a couple eggs, as well as a dragon's nest..  Unfortunately, there's no way to place anything, much less the eggs, in the nest, due to how it is currently set up.</div><div> </div><div>However, I finally found a way to have another type of egg in the nest ... sort of.</div><div> </div><div><img src="http://eq2.eqtraders.com/images/articles/dragon_nest_eggs.jpg"></div><div> </div><div>The eggs used are an item you can buy for 20-some silver from the Concordium (Qeynos caster guild) with amiable faction. They're called 'an ice crystal egg' and are blue crystal eggs on a black stand.   Place several down on the floor in a cluster, then place the nest on top of them.  It takes some juggling, and you can't totally hide the prongs from the stands, but it's better than nothing.  Sitting in front of the nest are the player-made marble eggs, which are too small to properly display if you drop the nest on top of them.  <img src="/smilies/283a16da79f3aa23fe1025c96295f04f.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></div>

<div></div><p>By the way, you *can* make your dragon sleep on the nest.  Pick up the nest and dragon.  Place the dragon where the center of the nest will be and then let him wander off.  Then place the nest. </p><p>Not efficient, per se, but it works.</p>

<div></div>a solution i found for the eggs not sitting on the nest is to place the eggs on some sort of small stool or andy object slightly higher then the nest then put the eggs on the stool then take the stool away withthe eggs foating in the air. Finally place the nest under the floating eggs and it seems that after you leave the house an come back the eggs fall and rest on top of the nest like  they are supposed to.

They sank in a little ways, but I thought it made them look more 'in' the nest.<div></div>

<div>Since this was originally posted, I've played with that corner of the attic a bit, including adding an egg warmer, the bird (hawk?  I can't remember) plushie quest reward, and even creative use of the Erollisi day candles so that it looks like there are hearts floating out of the hatcher, etc.</div><div> </div><div>Once I am <em>finally</em> happy with my home (sometime after my carpenter levels up a bit more), I'll see about posting a new shot.</div>
