The Uses of Neggs
NEGGERY - Neggs. They are Neopia’s most famous delicacy, with dozens of uses.
But, what are Neggs really? And what are they really for anyway? Well, they can
be simply, and obviously eaten, or even taken to the Neggery to exchange with
tokens to buy other Neggs from the Negg Faerie! Put it in your gallery of Neggs,
or of something that relates with that Negg, or look at them in the safety deposit
box! You can get prizes from them, gain strength from them, or even sell them
(and buy them, of course). This last one might not sound good, but you can ignore
them and leave them in your “items on hand” for months! Who can imagine the wonderful
world of Neggs!
Like most things, Neggs come in variations. For example, from just the plain
old “Negg” to super-rare “Cool Negg”. From normal-looking “Purple Negg” to a
ferocious “Monster Negg”! They also come in different shapes and sizes, and
sometimes good, but sometimes bad effects. Some might look like balloons filled
with sand, and some a bit, strange… Now that’s what I call varied!
To my opinion, I think Neggs aren’t hard to find. Starting from the good old
shop wizard, trading post and auction house, to random events and maybe even
Tarla’s Shop of Mystery. So I reckon Terror Mountain is the best place to find
Neggs, what I mean is, they have the “Neggery”, where the Negg Faerie will trade
your Neggs for tokens, which, if you have lots of can buy a rarer Negg with.
Another place that a Negg might be in is the Shop of Mystery, and the Garage
Sale. If you come at the right time, the Snowager might just have a Negg for
you to pinch, but careful not to get hurt! Or, the last, and easiest way is
you can just get it from a random event, which I had once!
What happens when a Negg gets eaten? If you only eat the normal Negg, chances
are, nothing. BUT if you eat something like “Super Negg”, with a high rarity
number, it’s the other way round. How do you eat it you say? Simple, just eat
it like it’s a normal omelette or something you always feed to your pet, and
do the same thing. Only of course, it’s a Negg. Some effects are good, some
doesn’t do anything, and some are BAD! Some Neggs are gourmet foods, but not
the super-rare one, because it’s gonna be over 100 rarity, so watch the rarity.
For me, the best use of Neggs is to, let’s face it, sell. Whether to the Neggery
and get an ultra-rare one with all your tokens, or in your shop, it earns you
something. You can also put it up in the auction house or the trading post!
Yes, you can earn something from selling it to the Negg Faerie, and get an ultra-rare
Negg, and sell it for some more extra Neopoints. But your use of your Negg is
completely up to you.
If you are giving it to the Negg Faerie, you can check how much it’s worth.
Go to your items, and click on it, and see its description. If it’s in the safety
deposit box the writings should be next to it. If you’re not sure of what to
do, go to a help site which has the list of Neggs, and what they might do. You
might not want to take a risk, so you’re going to sell it, or it could be the
other way round, it’s too.
If you think that the Neggery is not worthy of your Negg, BUT, I repeat but
you don’t want to eat it, and decided to put it in your shop to sell, look at
the price on what the other shops have. For example, if you’re going to sell
a Purple Negg, and the lowest price is 6000, just lower it down a teeny weeny
bit. For example, 5975 would be a great price by then, even though it’s quite
expensive. Remember to refresh and see other shops rather than just the one
you saw. If you saw an extremely LOW price, click on it, because sometimes it’ll
say that the particular user doesn’t have a shop. If that happened, don’t count
those shops in.
If you are going to buy a Negg, look at the price. To check if it’s reasonable,
look at the left side, under the place where your username, NP’s amount and
pet’s name belong, there’s a rectangle that says under it “search Neopets”.
Type in the Negg’s name, e.g. - Purple Negg. On the screen, it might say, Item-
Purple Negg, and Item- Ornate Purple Negg. Click on Item-Purple Negg, and wham!
You’ve got it! If you want to look for it, see if it’s for stock, or search
with shop wizard. Now you’re ready!
If you just want people to see your collection of Neggs, or whatever it is
that has something to do with the Negg you’re going to put in your gallery,
well, put it in your gallery, and don’t get the prices wrong. Double-check ALL
the time, because you’ll never know when you are going to be wrong or not. You
might just sell it for 10,000 NP’s, and someone bought it! To avoid that, just
write on your shop description (if you’re older than twelve or returned your
consent form) that all of your Neggs are NOT for sale, do the “not” in capital
or underlining it helps people to notice the writings more.
Neggs are particularly quite expensive in shops. It might be because it looks
rare, well, some of them are, but the common ones are expensive for what they’re
really worth. It’s like, Ghost Marshmallows, which is a gourmet food, is cheaper
than a common Negg. So MY preferred way of getting Neggs is by random events
(unless of course, you found someone who is very kind, and know how much Neggs
are really worth, and is willing to give it to you). Well, I hope I’ve helped
you with your Neggs, and so long now! Bye, and I might just write another helpful
article after this!
