How to Rock at Wishing!

A lot of people have asked about the Wishing Well and ways to increase your chances of winning. This is a REPEAT article, but since so many users ask, I figured I would put it up again. This article is written by Ayme (hisprincess)

How to Rock At… Wishing Ever come across The Wishing Well and wonder how some people just have all the luck? The truth is that while there is luck involved, there is also a strategy that many of these "lucky" people are using to help them get what they want.
  • Item Limits: The first thing you have to understand is that there are limits to what you can receive. The well can only grant items that are R89 and below. If you want a specific item, but you aren't sure of its rarity, Jellyneo's Item Database has that information for you. For ideas on the most lucrative items to wish for, just keep an eye on what other people are wishing for! The current favorite is Neopets 14th Birthday Goodie Bag, since they have a chance of containing a birthday petpet. They are also easy to sell.
  • Donations: You have to donate at least 21 NPs per wish to be entered into the drawing.
  • Number of Wishes: You have a maximum amount of wishes per day that will actually count, even though theoretically you could donate all day long if you wanted to. You can wish 7 times during each 12 hour period, from 7 am – 7 pm and 7 pm – 7 am. (Note that right now while Daylights Savings Time is in effect, the hours are 6 am – 6 pm and 6 pm – 6 am.) What if you lose count or don't remember if you've completed your wishes? Look up at the URL after making a wish. If it looks like this: http://www.neopets.com/wishing.phtml?thanks=21&xt= Then that wish counted! But if it looks like this: http://www.neopets.com/wishing.phtml?thanks=21 You just donated 21 NPs out of the goodness of your heart with no hope for reward.
The Wishing Well is a great way to get practically free items to use or sell. How lucrative? Well, in a 6 week period, I won 6 of those Neopets 14th Birthday Goodie Bags, a Hot Mug of Cocoa wearable for my Mallow Grundo, a Light Faerie Eye Shadow and a Frozen White Tree wearable for my Chocolate Usul. Considering the goodie bags currently sell for 650k, that's a very good profit for what took only 30 seconds a day and 13,000 NPs (the total donations over a 6 week period). Good luck and happy wishing!

Notice Board

Have something you would like to advertise? Looking to trade a pet/nc? Have items in your trades you would like to get rid of/sell? Anything you would like to advertise can be done so here! (Neo related and approved). Send Brittany your image or text advertising/explaining what you are seeking/selling/trading/ect.

Ayme (hisprincess) is buying all album items around 100-200k in value. Contact her if you have any to sell!



Have a question about neopets?? Send it to our very own Jamie and she will answer it!! All responses will be listed here!


How does the wishing well work? Is it totally random or if you submit a certain amount of NPs or your wish a certain amount of times does it get granted?

Dear Wishing Wel Go-Er,
The wishing well is sorta random. The Wishing Well grants 10 wishes a day. You can make 14 wishes a day. 7 wishes between 7am and 7pm NST and 7 more between 7pm and 7am. The well only grants wishes for items R89 and below and you must make sure you type the item spelled correctly word for word. And lastly each wish must be at least 21 neopoints... How ever feel free to be more gracious with your donations! With doing all these things correctly.. You are still not guaranteed a wish to be granted which is why I say it's kinda random. Good luck!

With Love,
Jamie


I've noticed with the recent Desert Diplomacy Plot that people have been sharing answers on the boards. TNT have promptly removed these answers. What do you think about it? Do you think it is good that TNT make it challenging or would you like to see some team-orientated/ shared challenges too? Thanks.

Dear Deserted,
Personally I think how challenging TNT is making this plot is nice. I always enjoy team building challenges but I think it makes it more special to have something or to know something not everyone else has/knows. People will figure out a way to share the answers but I applaud the effort on TNT's part for trying to keep it a solitary effort. Well done TNT~!

Love,
Jamie
