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.

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.

Lesson 9: Rarity and Battledome Gear Prices

There are some that say the damage from a weapon like the Cake Bomb (a Smuggler’s Cove item, less than 100 in existence, damage 11 to 15 is worth its high price tag of anywhere from 3 million to the sky is the limit. Then there are those that say why spend those kind of neos on that kind of weapon when you can get a Battle Potato for around 800,000 neopoints, it does 8 to 14 damage, just slightly less than the Cake Bomb at a fraction of the price, and as a game giveaway that you can’t buy in a store, it’s just as rare and unusual. The difference in damage between the two is barely noticeable.

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.
