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.

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 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.

Neopets Battledome

Kym Huynh —  October 24, 2011 — Leave a comment

The Neopets Battledome has been the home to L33T battlers for years. From well known names such as HROBI and HYNFAERIE, people have made their mark on Neopian history through the battledome. Also a place where Neopets plots are centered around, the Neopets Battledome allows your cute Neopets to wield weapons and attack in aggression while looking super cute and cuddly.

The beginning

Neopets weaponry and armor were rampant in Neopets before the Battledome made an appearance. In actual fact, the Battledome was something that was promised on Neopets for quite some time and it took a number of years (shall we say) before it was finally released to the public.

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.
