How To Guide For Battles
  1. The Neopets site has a Battledome FAQ (frequently asked questions). Click here to read this information before continuing with this guide. Also, before entering the Battledome, please read the Rules of the Battledome.
  2. This guide is an introduction to preparing your pets to fight successfully in the Neopets Battledome. Specific information for pets with a Level of over 250 is not part of this guide.
  3. Every pet has a stat for LEVEL (Lvl), HEALTH (Current hp, Hit Points, Endurance, Hp), STRENGTH (Attack Strength, Str), DEFENCE (Defence Strength, Def), and MOVE (Agility, Movement, Mov). Throughout the Neopets site, these stats may be referred to by the other equivalent names that are within the brackets. These stats can be viewed on Your Quick Reference.
  4. Health points are displayed as a two number stat. The first number is the amount of health that a pet currently has. The second number is the total amount of health that is normally possible. For example, a Health stat of 7/15 means that a pet currently has only 7 points out of a possible 15 points of Health. If a pet currently has zero Health points, the pet will not be able to fight in the Neopets Battledome.
  5. One way to increase your pet's stats is to enroll your pet in a training course. Click here to read the Neopets Training FAQ. For pets at Level 40 or less, training courses may be taken at the Cap'n Threelegs' Swashbuckling Academy and be paid for with Dubloon Coins. For pets at a Level 250 or less, training courses may be taken at the Mystery Island Training School and be paid for with normal Codestones.
    1. If your pet is at Level 40 or less, you should determine which training location is most beneficial for you in regards to expense and to time needed.
    2. After you select a training course for your pet, you may Pay for, or Cancel, the course. To be able to pay for the course selected, put the item(s) needed in Your Items list. When you pay for a course, the time remaining until course completion will be shown. After this time has passed, you need to visit the Status page where the training took place and click on the Complete Course button. Normally a course will increase a stat by one point, but sometimes you may get a bonus increase of two or more points.
    3. Remember that no other stat can normally be more than twice the number of your pet's Level. In terms of expense, it might be a good strategy to increase these other stats to two points below twice the Level number. Example : If your pet is at a Level 10, your strategy could be to increase all of the other stats to 18 (2 times 10, then minus two), before increasing your pet's Level. Another strategy you may use is to continue to increase the lowest stat (that is not Level), until increasing the Level stat is your only option available.
    4. The second number of the Health stat is the number that should be considered when deciding which course to select.
  6. Every species of pet has its own Pet Day. On, or about, your pet's Pet Day you may be able to receive free training at the Cap'n Threelegs' Swashbuckling Academy. Check The Neopian Calendar for Pet Day dates (example : every Aisha has a Pet Day on January 3rd), and read the New Features for any announced free training days.
  7. Sometimes, approaching Coltzan's Shrine (every 12 hours) may increase any one of your pet's stats for free.
  8. When scratching Terror Trove Scratchcards at the Ice Caves Scratchcard Kiosk, you can sometimes get an increase in a pet's Level stat. If you have more than one pet, any Level increase is applied randomly. A Level increase of one happens about once out of every 17 Terror Trove Scratchcards that are scratched (about six percent). You can scratch a maximum of five scratchcards per day, at the Ice Caves Scratchcard Kiosk.
  9. Completing a Mystery Island Kitchen quest may result in an increase in a random stat in one of your pets. Be careful not to spend too much, and the reward is usually some neopoints and/or food.
  10. Completing most randomly given faerie quests will result in a stat increase for a random pet. These include quests given out by the Air, Dark, Fire, Light, Water, and Space Faeries, and the Faerie Queen. Click here for more information.
  11. If you have access to The Laboratory, you may "zap" any of your pets once per day. Please check out the laboratory section on neo__rainbow's Daily Neopet Clicks page for more information, including a link to some actual lab results for Neo____Zafara.

    IMPORTANT - The Laboratory will sometimes give a pet a stat increase, sometimes a stat decrease.
  12. If you are not in a battle, you may be able to increase the amount of health that a pet currently has, for free, by visiting the Healing Springs (every 30 minutes), and then clicking on the Heal my Pets button.
  13. In addition to automatic species-related abilities, you may be able to bless your pet with Magical Abilities.
    1. To view your pet's current Magical Abilities, go to Your Quick Reference. Click on the down arrow next to the pet's picture, and then click on the View Abilities link. You must click on an ability to activate it (or to de-activate it), up to a maximum of seven active abilities per pet. If an ability has been activated it will be animated.
    2. To bless your pet with a Magical Ability, you need the correct type of bottled faerie in Your Items list. Click on the bottled faerie, then, in the pop-up page, use the pull down menu to Bless your pet, and then click on the Submit button.
    3. There are six categories of Magical Abilities - Flame, Water, Air, Darkness, Earth, and Light. The corresponding bottled faeries are : Bottled Fire Faerie, Bottled Water Faerie, Bottled Air Faerie, Bottled Dark Faerie, Bottled Earth Faerie, and Bottled Light Faerie.
    4. IMPORTANT - If you try to bless your pet with an ability that requires a higher level than what your pet currently has, your pet will not be blessed with an ability and you will lose your bottled faerie. Also, if you want your pet to be blessed with a specific ability, you must first bless your pet with all of the lower abilities within the same category.
    5. Some abilities may only be used once per battle, and others are multi-use. You may find that some abilities are better than others. Some good abilities include Heal (water level one), Bless (light level 7), Burrow (earth level 10), Water of Life (water level 20), Drain Life (darkness level 21), Restore (light level 22), and Regeneration (earth level 23).
    6. The Wheel Of Excitement has a very low chance of increasing or decreasing a random ability level.
  14. To do any damage to your opponent, you should equip your pet with weapons.
    1. Click here to view your pet's current list of equipped weapons. If you click on an equipped item, it will be removed and be placed in Your Items list.
    2. To equip your pet with an item, up to a maximum of eight items, you need the item in Your Items list. Click on the item, then, in the pop-up page, use the pull down menu to Equip your pet, and then click on the Submit button.
    3. Some weapons are multi-use per battle, some are one-use per battle, and some may be damaged or destroyed when being used.
    4. The Battlepedia has a list of many weapons that may be equipped to your pet.
    5. The following people have created very helpful sources of weapon information.
  15. The One Player Battledome is a place where you can fight one-player challenges. Click here for more information.
    1. Other than the default (or automatic) One Player challengers, there are many secret characters that can be found when certain tasks are performed. Click here to see a list of the challengers that you have found so far.
    2. There are several ways to find the One Player secret challengers. The following people have created very helpful guides to help find and successfully fight these challengers.
    3. The One Player Battledome is also used to play the Defender of Neopia games - Series One and Series Two. In order to complete the current mission, you must find and defeat the enemy at large. When the enemy has been defeated in the One Player Battledome, talk to your supervisor to get the details of the next mission. With every mission that has been completed, you get a more improved trophy.
    4. NOTE - Sometimes a plot/war uses the One Player Battledome. At these times, the regular One Player challengers may not be available to fight.
  16. The Battledome Quickfight is a place where you can challenge other pets that are automatically found for you. Click here for more information. NOTE - If you do not want to be potentially matched up with a much stronger pet, you should enter numbers for the maximum Level, Max hp, Attack Strength, and/or Defence Strength.
  17. The Challenge a Pet battledome option is used to challenge a specific pet. Click here for more information.
  18. Once you are inside the Battledome (i.e. in a fight), both you and your opponent need to make a move for each stage of the fight. Click here for more information and a sample screen-shot.
  19. Other Battledome information :
    1. The Battle Log is a history of all of the battles that you have fought.
    2. There is a One Player Hi-Scores that shows the most times that people have beaten certain enemies.
    3. If you have fought in the One Player Battledome, you can check out your One Player Battledome History, by clicking on the One Player BD link that is in your User Lookup.
  20. To get further help or information with anything and everything that deals with the Battledome, check out the Battledome NeoBoard.
  21. IMPORTANT - If you think that you are stuck in a battledome fight, please visit the Battledome's Status page to see if you have any active challenges (either re-enter or withdraw from any fights). If that does not help, then try to unequip an item from the "stuck" pet and then re-equip the pet again. If you are still stuck in a fight after 24 hours and nothing else has worked, you may want to submit a battledome report.

How To Guide For Games
  1. One way to earn neopoints is to play games in which a score can be submitted. It is possible to earn several thousands of neopoints every day by playing games and submitting scores.
  2. For many games, your score may be submitted for neopoints up to three times per day. When scores can be submitted for these types of games, choose wisely which three scores that you want to submit for the day. Other types games may have a limit on the amount of neopoints that can be earned for the day.
  3. To get to the Game Room, click on Games on the top menu bar. Remember that you may play today's Featured Game for double neopoints.
  4. Check out the Most Popular Games if you are interested in what everybody else is playing on Neopets for today.
  5. In addition to the regular Neopets games, there are several sponsor games that may be played for neopoints.
  6. Check out the Game Graveyard to play some of the retired Neopets games. Remember that you can not submit any scores for these retired games.
  7. To see anyone's current list of submitted high scores, you can click on the Scores graphic in their User Lookup.
    Click here to see a list of your achieved high scores.
  8. If your submitted game score is high enough and/or fast enough, you may be able to earn a trophy and/or a prize.
    1. The Monthly Hi-Score Tables is a list of this month's current game high scores.
    2. At the end of each day, the seventeen people with the highest game scores may receive a bronze, silver or gold trophy and some neopoints (250, 500, or 750).
    3. Since most high score tables are reset on the first day of the month, earning trophies is easier at the start of the month and becomes more difficult towards the end of the month.
    4. During the first day of the month it may be possible to earn a trophy with a lower submitted game score than usual because scores above a certain amount may take some time to be processed.
    5. There are other ways to earn game trophies as some games are based on cumulative scores, number of items collected, game progression/completion, etc.
  9. The Multi Player Game Lobby has a few turn based games that may be played against another person by playing a quick match or by playing in a tournament. If you choose to enter a tournament remember the following :
    • to be entered in a monthly tournament you must enter prior to the start of the month.
    • you may enter a different tournament for each game.
    • each tournament consists of four games (one game per week for four weeks).
    • a NeoMail will be sent to let you know when a game has been started.
    • you advance in a tournament by winning games.
    • until a game has been won, keep checking to see if your opponent has made a move.
    • if your opponent does not make a move for over a day, you may be able to win the game.
  10. Game Challenges allow people to find or issue challenges for several Neopets games. These games can be played for fun or they can be played for neopoints with bets going to the winner. The winner of a challenge is the person who submits the highest game score.

    NOTES - Before accepting a challenge with a bet, it may be wise to check out the submitted high scores of the person issuing the challenge (see line 7). If you lose a challenge with a bet, you will lose the neopoints that you have bet.
  11. Some people have created lists of helpful guides for specific games.

  2. You may create a NeoDeck by clicking here.

    NOTE - Sometimes a Random Event may give you a Collectible Card, but only if you have already created a NeoDeck.
  3. You may view the contents of anyone's NeoDeck, if they have one, by visiting their User Lookup, and then clicking on the NeoDeck link.

How To Guide For Shopkeeping
  1. The Neopets site has a Shop FAQ (frequently asked questions). Click here to read this information.
  2. A shop may be used to sell various items. A shop gives you the possibility of earning neopoints if you are able to sell items at higher prices than what the items had originally cost you to acquire.
  3. If you don't already have a shop, you can create one by clicking here. You will be asked to enter a Shop Name, a Shop Description (example: "This is my shop"), a Shopkeeper Name, and a Shopkeeper Greeting. You may change any of this information at any later time. When finished, remember to click on the Create Shop button. It's easier to choose a Shopkeeper Picture after the shop is created.
  4. When you originally create a shop, it will cost you 150 neopoints. Your shop will then be at a size one, and will enable you to have up to five items in your shop. A shop size of two will cost you an additional 200 neopoints, and will enable you to have up to ten items in your shop. After size two, everytime you want to upgrade (increase) your shop's size, it will cost 200 more neopoints than the last time that you upgraded. Every upgrade will enable you to add a total of five more items into your shop. If you have a small sized shop, the best way to earn neopoints to pay for your shop's next upgrade may be to play some Games. Selling several items at a profit may help you earn the neopoints needed to upgrade larger sized shops.
  5. A shop has a description in which you may enter text that will be displayed in your shop. Advanced users may enter HTML coding to display graphics, and more in your shop. Please read The Neopets HTML Guide for more information. Remember that as Your Shop's Description gets more complex, it may discourage people with slow internet connections from browsing your shop. If you want to display graphics, etc. in your shop that is not part of the Neopets site, please make sure that you have prior permission before using any off-site files, and that the files are allowed to be used on the Neopets site. Also, if you want to sell items in your shop, remember that keeping your item prices easy to see may result in more sales. You may change or update your shop's description as often as you want.
  6. There are two ways to add items into Your Shop's Stock. Either method will move items from Your Items list into your Shop's Stock.
    • The slow way is to go to Your Items list, click on each item to add (one at a time), then, in the pop-up page, use the pull down menu to put the item into your shop, and then click on the Submit button.
    • The fast way is to go to Your Quick Stock, click on every item's Stock button that you want to add to your Shop's Stock, and then click on the Submit button. Be careful that you do not accidentally click on an item's Donate or Discard buttons when using this method.
  7. To remove items from Your Shop's Stock, go to your Shop's Stock and remove any number of items, using the pull down menus, and then click on the Update button.
  8. A Safety Deposit Box can be very useful to a shopkeeper, especially if your shop can not contain any more items. It allows you to have a safe place to store items, and allows you to keep Your Items list as empty as you want. Items in Your Items list may be damaged or stolen by various Random Events that are part of the Neopets site. Items may be moved between Your Items list and your Safety Deposit Box, as often as you want. Click here for more information.
  9. To sell an item in Your Shop Stock, you must enter a price for each type of item. When you're finished adding or changing item prices, remember to click on the Update button located on the bottom of your Shop Stock list. Items that are priced at zero neopoints will not be displayed and can not be bought. Items that are priced between one neopoint and 99,999 neopoints are able to be bought.
  10. When someone purchases an item from your shop, the neopoints resulting from the sale will go into Your Shop Till. You may remove any amount of your neopoints for your Shop Till at any time. You may then decide to use these neopoints to purchase more items, to upgrade your shop, to deposit into Your Bank Account, etc.
  11. Advertising your shop on the Neopets Notice Board may result in more sales. Click here and click here for more information. Notice Board advertising will cost you some neopoints, and there is no guarantee that doing so will get the desired results. Advertising your shop on our guild's message board is discouraged. However, if a guild member is trying to locate a specific item for purchase, it is allowed to use our guild's message board if you have that item available, or if you know where the item can be found.
  12. If you want to sell items in your shop, they should be at a price that someone is willing to pay. If a price is too low, it should sell fairly quickly, but you will not earn as many neopoints as you probably could have. If a price is too high, then the item may not sell for a long time, if at all. To get a sense of the current market price of an item, using the Shop Wizard two or three times may help you establish a good selling price for that item. You may get better results if you subtract one or two neopoints from your established selling price (example : pricing an item at 499 neopoints instead of 500 neopoints may result in a quicker sale). Having one, or a few, of any one item in your shop may also give better results than if you have a large number of the same item. Remember that the estimated value (Est. Value) of an item may not actually be a good selling price. Also, remember that the current market price of an item may change over time.
  13. The Shop Wizard, the Trading Post, and the Auction House are just some of the ways that may help you locate many items that are able to be purchased from another person. You may also purchase items from several different Neopian stores and other Neopian places. By exploring The Worlds Of Neopia, most of the Neopian stores and places that sell items can be found. On the 3rd day of each month, the items in most Neopian stores are at half the regular Neopian store price, but be aware that even at half the regular store price there may be a few items that are still cheaper to purchase from someone's shop. Remember that most items are generally cheaper on the 4th or 5th day of each month, than near the end of the month. Also, remember that items that have been recently added to the Neopets site may keep falling in market price for the first few months.
  14. There are many ways in which you can create a personal list of item names that you want to have in your shop. Only a few different ways will be described here.
    • Items that seem to be popular, or items that seem to be in high demand, may interest you. Some such items may include codestones, dubloons, bottled faeries, inexpensive neggs, inexpensive medicines, scratchcards, inexpensive books, faerie quest items, inexpensive avatar items, inexpensive petpets, etc.
    • You may create a personal list of item names that appear in a specific Neopian store. Most Neopian stores are re-stocked at random. While in a Neopian store, try refreshing the screen every minute or two. You may refresh most Neopian stores by clicking on the store's shopkeeper. When the store re-stocks, you may add the item names that are displayed to your personal list.
    • You may create a personal list of item names by searching for one-word descriptions, or partial name descriptions, using the Shop Wizard, the Trading Post, or the Auction Genie. This type of item name search can also be done by entering a single word in the Search Neopets box that is located in the side and/or bottom menu bars. For example : one-word searches could be for "blue" or "kougra" or "plushie". What you try to search for is up to you.
  15. The more serious shopkeepers may want to keep a personal item name list that also includes the item prices that they have established. As your personal item name list grows in size, it may help if your item name list is in the same order that the items would appear in a shop, instead of in alphabetical order.

How To Guide For Stamp Collecting
  1. The Stamp Collector game is where you may have an album collection (stamps, coins, shells, etc.). Click here for more information.
  2. To add an item to Your Album, you need the item in Your Items list. Click on the item, then, in the pop-up page, use the pull down menu to Put into your Stamp Album, and then click on the Submit button.

    NOTE - Any item that has been added to Your Album can not ever be removed.
  3. You may view the contents of anyone's Album, if they have one, by visiting their User Lookup, and then clicking on the Stamps graphic.
