How To Beat Punchbag Bob by Stanley_Steamer

First, purchase unlimited multi-use weapons. I would recommend two scarab rings but if you are poor two lost desert daggers will do as well. In fact, any weapon, even super cheap ones (as long as they are unlimited use, meaning they won’t disappear) will work, it’ll just take slightly longer.

Then, enter a fight with Punchbag Bob and select your 2 weapons and choose fierce attack. Do not press go yet.

Then, paste javascript: function one_submit() { return true } into your address bar. Press enter once and nothing will happen, then click and hold the go! button. Start to press enter rapidly or hold the button down, depending on your keyboard speed.

Getting Started With Equipping Your Neopets for Battle by Cody

I always recommend building sets evenly. To me, there seems little point in paying 6 mil on a freezer if your total budget for a lineup is only 7 mil.

The 2 of your 8 weapons you will always use are a 100% multiple-use freezer and a Full Health healer. If you can’t afford the permanent freezer, a Scroll Of Freezing will work, keep in mind, it can break permamently. If you can’t afford a Full Health healer, many pet species now have good healing weapons (Blumaroo, Elephante, Gelert, Lenny, Nimmo, Shoyru, Uni and Kacheek). They may seem pricey at first but they will grow with your pet (they heal by percentages). If you are on a small budget, consider one-use healers such as the Lucky Robots Foot or multiple-use Healing Scrolls, great for low-HP fighters

Basic Training and Weapon Guide by Gustha

Hi everybody! You might (or might not) remember me from the “Hacking secrets revealed” article I sent in once. This is a guide written to help new people to the battledome train their pets and get the most out of their hard earned NP. I myself as a battledomer know how hard it is to make the right decisions, whether it be which weapons I should buy or which training method I should use.

Let’s start off with training. We come across various choices. We have the lab ray, for those who don’t mind its random effects (sex change, change in species, etc). This may be the best method if you have a good 90k to shell out and if you’re not planning on using species weapons (I.E. Iron Lupe Sword). The Lab Ray might change your pet’s species on the first shot, making your specialized weapons useless. The next method we come across is the training school. This is what most people will use to train, but it can prove to be very expensive. Training your pets up to 40+ stats can mean you must buy around 70 codestones, at 3000+ each, summing up to a grand total of 210,000np. Yikes! We’ve already spent all that NP without even buying any weapons! The last option I will mention in this guide (this doesn’t include less efficient means like the kitchen quests or faerie quests, etc) is the Swashbuckling Academy, where you do not pay in codestones but dubloons. Dubloons are less expensive than codestones, but training at the Academy takes much longer, and becomes even more expensive to train your pet in later levels. Why, the Academy only takes pets up to level 40! Still, if you are on a strict budget, and don’t mind the wait, I suggest you take a serious look at the Academy.

Battledome Strategy 101 – Lesson 1 by Jadeasahi

Lesson 1: The First Turn Freeze

The first turn freeze is a strategy employed by Battledomers early on in their careers, and takes them well into the high end game. At the lowest levels, this is attempted with unreliable freezing, but inexpensive, abilities and weapons such as: fiery gaze, snowglobe staff, and the frost cannons, to name a few options.

The purpose of the first turn freeze is to render an opponent helpless for the second round of combat, allowing the attacking player to get their damage through completely unblocked. Typically this attack will consist of the highest damage weapons in that person’s arsenal with fierce or berserk attack. Honey potions are probably the favorite item to use unblocked, but are expensive. Other weapons in this family include Jhudora’s Potion, Battle Potate, Cake Bomb, Ummagine Battle Muffin, and Ummagine Bomb; there is a long list of once-per-battle high damage weapons. Also in this situation, attackers will typically use very high damage multiple use weapons that are easily blocked, such as the Attack Pea.

Battledome Strategy 101 – Lesson 8 by Jadeasahi

Lesson 8: Healing Items

The Healing Items are a huge family of weaponry. The first of these, which doesn’t really heal, is Thyoras Tear. This is a weapon which, while it doesn’t heal, prevents any damage from being dealt to the pet using it (it will not, however, stop Drain Life). It may only be used once per battle.

The next in this family is Slime Potion and the Scorchstones, themselves representing two different groups; one characterized by the Jade Scorchstone and the Jeweled Scarab and the other by the colored Scorchstones up through the Rainbow. Slime Potion is a straightforward, inexpensive once per battle item that will heal a pet for 10 hit points. This progresses up through the Rainbow Scorchstone, which will heal 80 ht points. The group characterized by the Jade Scorchstone heals differently, adding to your hit points the difference between the pet’s potential full life and its actual life when the stone is used. The difference is actually profound, and needs to be elaborated.
