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.

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 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
