This guide was written on the 16th of April 2006.

Being new to the battledome can be a very tough and daunting experience, you will often encounter many people with bigger budgets and stronger weapons in their arsenal than you have. Basically I am trying to help out new battlers with smaller budgets and who need a helping hand in the battledome.

Me and my Pets
Ive learned a lot about low level battling on a strict budget, I used to fight with weapons in the 100k+ range but after I was hacked it all changed. I decided to make a new account and a new pet so I could fully start over, quickly I learned about the low level weapons, which of them were strong and useful and were worth the price. With a simple battledome set of under 20k I managed to win my first 50 battles with only 3 losses under my belt.

Lesson 2: The After The First Turn Freeze

Assuming both battledomers have reached the stage of battledoming I like to call MAFTF (mutually assured first turn freeze; i.e. both players are going to freeze reliably on the first turn) the next step in the progression is the after the first turn freeze, which involves trading shots between opponents until one achieves a second freeze through the use of the faerie granted ability Fiery Gaze. This strategy is used as frequently in the high end game as it is in the low end game, if energy permits as battles draw to closes.

If you are reading this guide, you obviously want to beat Punchbag Bob and get that spiffy trophy on your lookup! Well here is a guide to the sort of weapons that you should purchase and how much NP you will probably need.

First of all, make sure you have at least ,6000 neopoints. Go to the shop wizard and type in ‘Scarab Ring’. Then buy the cheapest. Then go back and buy another one. The most you should have spent is 6,000np.

Another way of beating him is to purchase two ‘Lightning Scrolls’. For one of these, the most you should be paying is 5,000 neopoints so that is 10,000 neopoints in all.

To start off we start at training for the long run you have 3 choices in my order of preference here they are

#1: Secret Lab
Great if you have 1m you will have enough for the best (low level) set it is risky but it is good you have a good chance of leveling hit points but if you have a loved pet that you like the species it can be a bad thing (e.g. you have a pirate Krawk and it turns into a blue Blumaroo) but it can change a blue Blumarooo into a pirate Krawk its good and bad but I think its worth it (cost 450k-550k(no more than that).

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.
