# Easter Eggs

This page contains all current and past Easter Eggs implemented into Melvor Idle.

## Amulet of Calculated Promotion

The 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 , which is dropped by . The chest will always contain the if the player's character name is witwix.

## Clue Chasers Insignia

Bank layout to obtain Clue Chasers Insignia.

The 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. Prior to V1.1 when the game's internal item IDs were numeric, the numbers corresponded to the 'item ID' of items in Melvor Idle, where 4 was , 8 was , 15 was , 16 was , 23 was , and 42 was . These items must be manually placed in the aforementioned order, so that the first 6 slots of the Bank contain them. The items were previously required to be in specific quantities, although this requirement was removed in V1.1 meaning that only the specific items and the correct order is required. These specific quantities were discovered by reversing the number sequence, and were as shown below.

, , , 15 Raw Crab, , .

From the release of V1.1, the internal IDs the game uses for referencing objects such as items changed from numeric to namespaced IDs, rendering the original hint largely irrelevant. In addition, the quantity requirement was relaxed, allowing the required items to be of any quantity, as long as they are in the required order. The description was changed to reference the original method - each grouping of three numbers separated by a question mark indicates the item's position within the bank, the item's numeric ID, and the item's quantity in that order.

Once the items have been moved to the first 6 slots within the leftmost tab of the Bank in the correct order, the 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 in the bank, or if the order 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.

## 69(lol)

"69(lol)" is a Easter Egg where "(lol)" is added next to every instance of 69 appearing on the 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 UI.

## Yep, still undefined

The 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.

## Sell x6,969M

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.

## Insubordinate

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.

## Golbins

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 , which is the developer's unique spin on the Goblin archetype.

## Golden Golbin

The is a pet that can only be obtained by getting a kill count of 42,069.

These items were first added as part of the rework in V0.22, however the recipe for these items unusually has no like other recipes, causing a number of issues when attempting to create the recipe with the intended implementation.
