This page contains all current and past Easter Eggs implemented into Melvor Idle.
Amulet of Calculated Promotion
The Amulet of Calculated Promotion was added in the Alpha v0.12 update and was the first Easter egg item to be added to the game. Twitch streamer witwix has promoted Melvor Idle on his stream by discussing the game with his community, leading to an increase in active players. The amulet was added as a response by the developer to show his appreciation for this promotion. The amulet is obtainable by name changing to "witwix" (case sensitive) and opening the Chest of Witwix, which is dropped by Leeches. The chest will always contain the Amulet of Calculated Promotion if the player's character name is witwix.
Clue Chasers Insignia
Bank layout to obtain Clue Chasers Insignia.
The Clue Chasers Insignia was added in the Alpha v0.14 update and was teased with a clue which requires metagaming to solve. The clue for how to obtain the amulet was left in the patch notes:
"The Numbers, mason, What do they mean?!"
The clue is a red herring reference to a cutscene from the game Call of Duty: Black Ops. The numbers important for solving the clue come from the TV show Lost, which uses the numbers 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, and 42, as a part of the show's mythology. The numbers correspond to the 'item ID' of items in Melvor Idle, 4 is Maple Logs, 8 is Redwood Logs, 15 is Raw Swordfish, 16 is Raw Crab, 23 is Herring, and 42 is Burnt Cave Fish. These items must be manually placed in the aforementioned order, so that the first 6 slots of the Bank contain them. The items must also have a specific quantity, which is discovered by reversing the number sequence. The correct order and quantity of items is shown below.
42 Maple Logs, 23 Redwood Logs, 16 Raw Swordfish, 15 Raw Crab, 8 Herring, 4 Burnt Cave Fish.
Once the items have been moved to the first 6 slots within the leftmost tab of the Bank in the correct order and quantity, the Clue Chasers Insignia will be automatically awarded. If the amulet is not awarded immediately, the player should swap two of the items and then swap them back into the correct order. If there is already a Clue Chasers Insignia in the bank, or if the order/quantity of items is wrong, the amulet will not be awarded. If the amulet is equipped, sold or lost, it can be obtained again using the same method.
Typing "8" into the Bank search bar will add a 8 to the player's Bank. On use, it has an 1/8 chance to add 8 new 8's to the bank, and has a sell value of 8. This Easter egg was added in the Alpha v0.15 update.
"69(lol)" is a Farming Easter Egg where "(lol)" is added next to every instance of 69 appearing on the Farming page. Whenever any planted seed has 69 minutes remaining until grown, the information tile will read "Time Left: About 69(lol) mins" remaining. This Easter Egg was added in the Alpha v0.12 update, which made changes to the Farming UI.
Yep, still undefined
The Slayer Cowl (Basic) had a description of "Yep, still undefined". This is due to a bug where the description was "undefined" for a period of time, but after the developer fixed it, the bug returned and so did the bug reports. In response, the developer decided to just change the item description to "Yep, still undefined" after that.
This description was replaced with a description of the item's passive effect as part of the Alpha v0.18.0 update.
Prior to the Bank rework introduced in Alpha v0.17.0, changing the amount to "ALL" when selling items from the Bank would set the sell amount to 6,969M by default.
When changing the player's username, leaving the "New Desired Username" box blank will result in having the name "Insubordinate". This also occurs when creating a new game, and not setting a username.
Prior to patch version Alpha v0.13, some of the creatures were erroneously named Goblin, which is a creature from European folklore, used most commonly in fantasy settings today. Patch Alpha v0.13 changed all creatures named Goblin to Golbin, which is the developer's unique spin on the Goblin archetype.
The Golden Golbin is a pet that can only be obtained by getting a Golbin kill count of 42,069.
Using "wherearemylemons" to add Lemons to the bank.
Typing "wherearemylemons" into the Bank search bar will add a Lemon to the player's Bank. Lemon, Lemons, and Lemonade are joke items added in the April Fools 2020 Event, patch v0.14.69.
Typing "uuddlrlrba" into the Bank search bar causes a fireworks effect to occur for 10 seconds. This effect is otherwise only seen when the player reaches a significant milestone, such as reaching skill level 99 in any Skill.
The search phrase is a reference to the well-known Konami Code.
Lemon is an Easter Egg item which was previously given to the player in place of an Aorpheats Signet Ring piece, when the requirement of wearing a Gold Topaz Ring was not met. This was changed to instead drop a Gold Topaz Ring in Alpha v0.16.3. See Signet Ring Half (a) and Signet Ring Half (b) for more details on how to find the Aorpheats Signet Ring.
Monster and Item Names
A possible early iteration of the art for Malcs, the Guardian of Melvor.
Malcs, the Guardian of Melvor, is a combat level 677 dungeon boss named after the developer of the game.
Prat, the Protector of Secrets is a combat level 360 dungeon monster named after the "artist", writer, and Discord moderator of the game, Prat. The Cape of Prat is also named after Prat, with the flavour text, "You're more accurate when you're naked." The text is purely for flavour and has no mechanical impact. The text is a reference to an in-joke between the developer and Prat.
Many of the pets in the game are named after characters from popular culture or individuals/real-life pets.
The Wandering Bard was introduced in the Alpha v0.18.0 update, and was described in the changelog as "A Hidden Easter Egg Monster". This monster cannot be encountered normally, as it does not appear within any Combat Area, Slayer Area, or Dungeon. Instead this monster may only be encountered randomly when the player obtains a new normal tier Slayer task.
Easter Egg is an item that was introduced during the Alpha v0.19.2 update, and could be obtained by successfully defeating a Chicken in Chaos mode. In Chaos mode, Chickens always performed an unavoidable attack which would instantly kill the player, and so the only way to defeat Chickens was to obtain enough attack speed reduction (via the Chaos mode item corruption mechanic) such that the player's attack would occur before the Chicken could attack. Once defeated, an Easter Egg would be added to the player's bank.
The Easter Egg could only be legitimately obtained with a Chaos mode character, and as of Alpha v0.21 cannot be obtained at all.
Cool Glasses were introduced as part of the Alpha v0.21 update, in which a rewrite of combat (including support for the long-awaited offline combat) was introduced. The glasses are a tribute to the developer of the combat rewrite, Coolrox95.
The Cool Glasses may be obtained by petting the Cool Rock pet 95 times.
Red Herring was originally added as part of the Alpha v0.21 update, although could not be legitimately obtained until Alpha v0.22. This was done in order to reserve the item ID 1,000 for this item, making it the 1,001st item added to the game.
To obtain the Red Herring, the player must first meet all of the following requirements:
Once the requirements are met, the Red Herring will have a 1-in-10,000 (or 0.01%) chance of dropping while fishing for Raw Herring.
Abnormal Log was originally added as part of the Alpha v0.21 update, although could not be legitimately obtained until Alpha v0.22. This was done in order to reserve the item ID 999 for this item, making it the 1,000th item added to the game.
To obtain the Abnormal Log, the player must first meet all of the following requirements:
Once the requirements are met, the Abnormal Log will have a 1-in-10,000 (or 0.01%) chance of dropping while pickpocketing the Lumberjack.
Unique recipe UI for the Lemon Cake.
Lemon Cake and Lemon Cake (Perfect) were originally introduced during the Alpha v0.22 update, although they could not be legitimately obtained until V1.0.3.
These items were first added as part of the Cooking rework in V0.22, however the recipe for these items unusually has no Mastery like other recipes, causing a number of issues when attempting to create the recipe with the intended implementation. As a result, the items were instead added into the game data without any legitimate method to create or obtain them. This was later resolved as part of V1.0.3, being the update in which Cooking became a tick-based skill.
To obtain the Lemon Cake and its perfect variant, the player must first meet all of the following requirements:
Once the requirements are met, Lemon Cake can be selected as a recipe from the Furnace and created like any other cooking recipe. The recipe has a few unique visual elements, namely:
- The item Mastery level permanently remains at level 69 with 4.20% progress to the next level. The cake does not actually have any mastery, and these values do not change no matter how many times the recipe is created
- The usual action time icon is replaced a lemon-colored clock
- The Bag of Flour and Cream icons are alternative versions only seen within this recipe
