Archives For Battledome Guides

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.

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

Lesson 4: Faerie Abilities

There is no evidence yet to support any difference between the level at which an ability is used. Drain Life will not drain more life on the “strong” setting than it will on the “weak” setting, it will just drain your energy faster to use it on “strong”. The “strength” of an ability does not seem to matter except in the cases of Burrow and Sink, and this has not been confirmed. That said, my advice on the strength to use for your abilities is to use Medium for Burrow and Sink, or Strong if you want to burn 60 percent of your energy on those two moves. Always Drain Life, Heal and Fiery Gaze on weak. Diamond Dust will do the same thing as Fiery Gaze and there is no reason to use it at a strength other than weak. Understand this: USING ABILITIES ON WEAK WILL CONSERVE YOUR ENERGY. You will be able to use more abilities for more turns by conserving your energy. This is important.

Know Your Motes by Amy Soyka

Motes are little creatures which aid you in the battledome, helping out of all sticky situations with their close attacks some defend whilst others attack, and maybe even some do both!

Ash Mote: kicks up ash to make cloud
The Ash Mote stops you from getting hurt and also has a dark attack. It also defends your pet. (found in the lost desert as scorched sand)

Bubble Mote: creates a bubble round your pet
The Bubble Mote is the best fire defence mote, preventing you from both dark and fire damage it can also protect you from physical attacks by turning you invisible.
(found in the remains of maraqua)

Lesson 6: Grenades

Grenades is a term that I use for any once per battle weapon. These weaons are just what they say, items that may only used once per battle. Some of these items when used will vanish forever. Weapons in this family include Snowballs, Snowflakes, Exploding Pizza Pasty, and Clockwork Grundos to name but a few. Another class of these items are persistent, that is they may only be used once per battle, but you get them back when the battle is over. Weapons in this family include Mud Mixture, Illusens Earth Potion, Honey Potion, and Battle Potato to name only a few.
