Seven 'Great' Tactics To Get A Faerie Quest
Faerie Quests: Sometimes the cheapest way to get stat boosts, sometimes the
most expensive. Some people might use them as a quick way to train high-level
pets. In any case, they can be quite helpful. And quite difficult to get. Some
Quest-Crazed people may spend hours wandering pointlessly around the site, accompanied
by Neopets who are doubtless bored and contemplating mutiny. Would you like
to be dragged back to your Neohome by a bunch of pets who got fed up of waiting
for a faerie to run out of mascara? Well, I'm not that sure of how sane you
are, but I'm assuming your answer is no. Thus, I wrote a list of seven (Yes,
seven, a lucky number - And if you follow these, I think you may need the extra
luck!) tactics for getting faerie quests. Their effectiveness may vary depending
on what type of faerie you try*. So, here are some great** tactics for getting
a quest, and what may come of them!
1. 'Borrow' something from a Faerie, and just happen to be nearby when they
discover it's missing.
Good Possible Aftermath: The faerie comes out, sees you and asks for her item.
Seeing as you just 'borrowed' it, you already have one! The faerie thanks you
and gives you a stats boost.
Bad Possible Aftermath: The faerie comes out, sees you and asks for her item.
Seeing as you just 'borrowed' it, you already have one! You give it to the faerie
who looks at it, sees the spot where she wrote her name in pen, and works out
that you stole her item. You are forced to flee Faerieland chased by a mob of
angry faeries throwing lightning bolts at you.
Note: 'Borrowing' items from Dark Faeries is not recommended.
2. Follow a faerie around all day, and whenever she starts to give someone
a quest, push them out of the way and look at her innocently.
Possible Good Aftermath: The faerie will give you a quest the first few times,
though she may start to notice a similarity in the people she gives quests to
and start ignoring you.
Possible Bad Aftermath: The faerie will give you a quest the first time and
then when you try it a second time, she'll refuse. And if you don't give it
up then you're very likely going to be chased by an angry faerie and several
angry Neopets you cheated of quests.
Note: Again, Dark faeries may not be too happy with you following them around.
I suggest you abandon this tactic if they start looking at you funny.
3. Sit in Faerieland with a sign that says, 'G1MM13 A QEST LYK N0W!'
Possible Good Aftermath: A faerie will give you a mock quest asking you to
fetch her something nasty like dung, or something expensive, probably a paintbrush.
When you complete it, she'll be so shocked she'll forget it was a mock quest
and actually reward you.
Possible Bad Aftermath: Faeries will ignore and mock you, with the odd Dark
faerie throwing something unpleasant at you.
Note: This strategy isn't suggested when the faerie gives you a mock quest
asking for a paintbrush. You'd be better off training unless you're some kind
4. Walk up to a faerie and offer them money if they give you a quest.
Possible Good Aftermath: The faerie will take pity on you as you're so obviously
quest-deprived and give you a quest. You complete it and get your stat boost.
Possible Bad Aftermath: The faerie will take your money and give you a quest.
The quest will be for an unbuyable item and you have to say you can't complete
Note: Unlike the last ones, it is not a danger to your health using this tactic
with Dark faeries. In fact, they seem to like it a lot when people use this
tactic on them.
5. Reverse Psychology! Walk up to a faerie and tell them, 'I hope you don't
give me a quest. I hate quests!'
Possible Good Aftermath: The faerie will understand your brilliant psychology
and give you a quest.
Possible Bad Aftermath: The faerie will take your words literally and not give
you a quest.
Note: Most faeries are kind creatures, and would do their best to make you
happy by not giving you a quest. HOWEVER, Dark Faeries will misinterpret your
statement and 'make you miserable' by giving you a quest. They tend to cackle
maniacally for a time, until they realise you were using reverse psychology
on them, at which point they'll jump up and down, scream and try to smite you.
I recommend that any quests you get through this tactic are completed quickly.
6. Ask the Pant Devil to steal something from a faerie so that she'll ask
you for it.
Possible Good Outcome: The Pant Devil will listen to you, for some reason,
and take an item from the poor faerie who then asks you, who are standing innocently
nearby, for the item. If the Pant Devil's feeling nice, he might even give it
Possible Bad Outcome: The Pant Devil decides that Paint Brush in your inventory
is a nicer prize than some faerie's old mascara...
Notes: Yet again, don't try this with Dark Faeries. Most of them have some
kind of association with the Pant Devil. Also, even if he does steal the faerie's
item, he'll probably try to steal your item too, so make sure you aren't carrying
anything valuable before trying this tactic.
7. Prod a faerie with a Sparkshooter until she gives you a quest.
Possible Good Outcome: The total scariness of your Sparkshooter will be so
immense the faerie gives you a quest.
Possible Bad Outcome: The faerie smites you for prodding her with a Sparkshooter.
Notes: Sadly, the second outcome is a lot more likely than the first one. Also,
Dark Faeries, like anyone else but more than some other faeries, do not like
being prodded with a Sparkshooter. For that matter, neither does Fyora...
And there they are! The seven... Not /best/ ways to get a quest... Er... Seven
ways to get a faerie quest! No longer shall you be dragged into your Neohome
by mutinous pets! Much more likely you'll be chased by angry faeries! Good luck!
Note: The author takes no responsibility for any burns, cuts, bankruptcy
or similar things that come as an outcome from following her advice.
*If you didn't pick it up in the article, Dark Faeries generally don't like
people begging them for quests. And Fyora doesn't appreciate the genius of these
**If you believed me when I said great, you have problems.
