Coltzan's Shrine: Is Timing Everything?

by neosizedpain

Many people wonder if there is a specific time to make there pet stronger? Or to make it faster, smarter, get its levels up, or raise its defence? Maybe you want to gain NP, slowly and surely. Maybe you want to guarantee you will find a faerie or a Dubloon. Or maybe you just have your eyes on the one million Neopoint prize.

Well, I don't know about you, but I use Coltzan's Shrine everyday. I usually hope to get my pets stats up, so they can be better Battledomers. But I've always had the want inside me to get one million Neopoints. Sure, I already do have one million, but I could always use a little more pocket money. Last week, I checked out the editorial where somebody asked if the shrine gave out one million at 3:00 am. The person who replied to that, said there is no specific time to get it. You just have to be really lucky. But if you read the end, it would tell you that timing does work for other things.

I don't know, but I think the prizes either have to do with what second it is, or what minute. Or maybe there is some pattern like: one second after the minute-Lost Desert Food, two seconds after the minute-faerie, three seconds after the minute-feel slightly richer, four seconds after the minute-you find a shiny Dubloon in the sand, five seconds after the minute-Lost desert food, etc.

My opinion is that you shouldn't spend your whole time on NeoPets, hoping to get 1 million. It's hard, but one day we all quit NeoPets. It makes me feel sad that that time could be anywhere from now till I'm sixty. By then I would probably have at least 20 million! My point is the shrine isn't the most efficient gold mine around.

Well sometimes the shrine can give you good things, like faeries, Dubloons, raise your pet's stats, or simply give you 200 NP. But sometimes it can give you really daft things like, 'You hear a horrifying scream, and then it stops' (I can't remember exactly, so I'm doing my best), 'A chill wind picks up, then It dies down', 'Nothing happens', 'The sand beneath your feet feels slightly warmer than usual', and 'Your hands glow green for second, then stop'. My pets aren't really satisfied with that, but they have a good laugh.

Sometimes getting food can help, IF your pet is really hungry. Even still, only one piece of food doesn't help. At certain times though, you may be granted with a special Battledome item from Coltzan. These can often help, if you are short on NP and can't afford to buy the stronger items that only last once. These items that I have received are 'Serf Lens', which looks like a handheld mirror that deflects some damage off all attacks, and 'Coltzan's Gem', that can do some damage to the opponent.

I don't have the accurate times to when all of these happen, but if I ever get them figured out, I will be sure to make another article for you readers. I hope my guide has helped you in some ways and always remember, "When in doubt, DON'T look to the Shrine".
