Do you have to fill the whole thing with Essence to hatch it?

I think no, but it will definitely look better with essences.

Wow, you already filled it? :P
I got only 2 essences, and it already has a name. It has a remove name command though, what happens if I use it?

Filled dat egg. Was so glad.

One question - 1 egg per user or you may have more? Excluding drop from chests ofcourse.

Is it possible to get essence and halloween chests in regular play or is it Diretide mode only?

each egg will most likely turn into a courier. I'm hoping for that new dragon one (had my eyes on that one ever since it was in workshop) or maybe baby roshan

AFAIK only Diretire mode. As for essences via chests - less likely, but Egg Drop chance is there.

Nope. They will hatch into Greevils.

People say its a courier, but I really think it's a pet/companion.

Mine is going to be a white Greevil, unless I get a dark essence in which case I think I'll buy another egg so I can have one white and one black.

Wait.. An egg drops every time roshan is killed? So the first person to pick it up gets it or what? I know you can win an essence in replace of hero items in diretide.. Is killing Rosh the only way to get an egg.. There is a diretide wiki that says which essences will make the different types of eggs

Egg is given for first diretide after Rosh kill only.

An addition egg can be obtained from store, through chests (halloween chests only), and maybe through drops.

No, you get one egg only on the first time you participate in a dire tide game. Subsequent games will not give you an egg.

Yes only one shadow or the other mythical essence and once you put it you'll just have to wait for the egg to hatch and any other essences that was inserted before will disappear once a mythical essence is inserted.

i dont think you can even attempt to insert any more. it just locks it. unless i get more essences, i think im going to have to get a dark egg, because i traded my other essences for some stuff i really really wanted xD

Unusual essences are for leveling up your egg.

http://www.playdota.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1148520 seems legit, though Im unsure how accurate it is.

That pet is a Smeevil. Compare it to the International courier, it's the same species of creature.

The Greevil is something else completely.

I know greevils != smeevil. =.=

The link was to demonstrate how a pet/companion would work, I'm not saying that it's the same thing.
