• Noblegarden’s new Duck Disguiser toy lets players become different colored ducklings, but getting all variations takes 6 years.
  • Each character can only earn one duck color per event, making it a long process to unlock all six disguises.
  • Players are frustrated that the Duck Disguiser’s color variations are not account-wide, requiring multiple years of completion.

The new Duck Disguiser toy added to the Noblegarden event in World of Warcraft takes six years to get all of its color variations. This bizarre unlock process is not account-wide, causing no small amount of frustration among World of Warcraft players.

Noblegarden is World of Warcraft’s in-game event that corresponds to the real-life Easter holiday. This year, to celebrate the addition of ducks in WoW: Dragonflight, Blizzard added a few new duck-themed things to Noblegarden, including a duck holiday storyline, a duck Druid world boss, and several duck rewards, including the Duck Disguiser – a toy that transforms players into one of six different colors of ducklings.


World of Warcraft Might Bring Plunderstorm Back in the Future

The new World of Warcraft battle royale has taken players by storm, and Blizzard is not above repeating or iterating on the event in the future.

However, fans have been left scratching their heads about one aspect of the Duck Disguiser. The toy itself is an account-wide reward given at the end of the holiday questline, meaning any character can use it. That said, the quest also unlocks one of the six duckling colors when completed. These different variations are not account-wide, meaning players can only earn one during the event, so getting them all requires fans to complete this questline on a single character for six years. Additionally, there is no default option for the toy, so characters who do not complete the quest are unable to choose a disguise – a strange design choice considering WoW‘s focus on alt-friendliness with Warbands in The War Within.

WoW Noblegarden Duck Disguiser Takes 6 Years to Get

  • The Duck Disguiser toy earned from WoW’s Noblegarden event allows players to transform into one of six types of ducklings.
  • Only one color can be earned on a character each Noblegarden, so players would have to repeat the event annually until 2029 to unlock them all.
  • Each character must complete the quest to unlock a duck coloration, rendering the toy useless to any who don’t do it during the week-long event.

Initially, fans actually thought this was a bug or a glitch, but World of Warcraft has since confirmed it was intentional. Many players are not happy with the restrictions on this new toy and think all the disguises should simply be unlocked for every character. Luckily, WoW has indicated it is receptive to feedback, so hopefully, the Duck Disguiser will be fixed in the future.

Despite a few parts of the Love is in the Air event rework in WoW, the Valentine’s Day event was quite popular – and the new Noblegarden event has left much to be desired in comparison. With another boss mount featuring an extremely low drop rate, no better ways to farm event currency, and the missed opportunity to finally give players a duck mount, many WoW fans think Noblegarden missed the mark. Hopefully, Blizzard can give other World of Warcraft events more satisfying facelifts in the future.
