Lesson 5: Drain Life

Drain Life is currently the most used and abused ability in the game. It would not surprise me if any moment now the Neostaff decided to make this a once per battle ability in the manner of Sink and Burrow. Drain Life essentially takes 11 percent of an opponent’s hit points and transfers them to the caster. It cannot be blocked. It cannot be stopped. Used on weak, it could be done 10 times before the caster ran out of energy. Against higher hit point opponents this can be devastating.

Consider a pet using Drain Life and an Everlasting Crystal Apple (an item that heals for 30 points and can be used round after round and won’t break) against a pet with 300 or so hit points. This means that for the first few rounds that pet is adding an average of 60 points to their health. Their opponent must not only inflict greater damage than that in order to have any impact, but if they fail to produce as much damage as the attacker is generating with their second weapon, they are being out damaged and they will lose. – Jadeasahi

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.

This is a battledome guide for absolute newbies. In this guide I have included advice on training methods, abilities and equipment in the battledome.


This is an obviously important aspect of being a good battledomer.

There are 5 statistics that you can improve for your pet. These are strength, defence, agility, endurance and level.

First of all, one thing that should be made clear: Agility does NOTHING whatsoever in the battledome. Increasing your pet’s agility is a waste of time and neopoints. Some people like to train it anyway to have nice rounded stats but I personally don’t bother.

Strength is a measure of how much damage your pet does in the battledome.

At certain levels (stages of growth and experience), your pet will gain certain powers. These range from the ability to hide to shooting fireballs or flying! Every couple of levels your pet will gain new abilities. This page allows you to view and activate these special powers!

Abilities Explained

What are abilities?

Abilities are special moves which your neopet are able to be blessed with.

What are they used for?

Abilities can only be used in the Battledome when battling another opponent.

How do I bless my neopet with abilities?

You must have in your possession some bottled faeries. These faeries can be found as a random event, be bought in the Magic Shop, be bought by doing a search on the Shop Wizard, traded in the Trading Post or by having a friend give you one. Once you have one, go to your inventory screen, click on the bottled faerie, and select ‘Bless Your NeoPet’. Your neopet should be blessed.
