New Plot Steps
  • Posted by Herdy
  • Posted on December 1, 2017, 2:35 pm NST

New steps have been released in the Wraith Resurgence! These steps effectively have you repeating the steps from last week, but with slightly added difficulty.

(Note, TNT have fixed the "method" that allowed you to refresh Mystic Murmurs. You will now need to solve it the intended way, by deciphering Kaia's notes and notices.)

Our guide has been updated with the new steps, and we've created a step-by-step walkthrough for you to follow:

Step-By-Step Walkthrough »

Scrappy has also clarified the matter of battle caps on the boards:

Okay folks, I've been waiting until I knew for absolute certain but battling to 100% is all you need to do! There is no extra achievement for extra battles!

Meaning that, once you have battled each Wraith to fill their progress bars to 100%, you will not get any additional points for overbattling (though you will get free Wraith ingredients for Taelia).

Editorial Updates (Slow Updates + Charity Corner)
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on December 4, 2017, 12:16 pm NST

This week's Editorial (which was published quite late--possibly around this morning), has some interesting news surrounding why some updates have been quite slow lately, namely the plot steps and the late New Features updates:

Hello everyone! Sooo, I know this NT is very late and we are really sorry about that! TNT Headquarters is picking up and moving on down the road to a more central location in Neopia Central! However, (as most of you may remember from last time) it causes a few delays and mishaps! Which we are veryyy sorry for but will try to make this transition as painless as possible for everyone!

The Editorial also made mention of Charity Corner, and its alleged return:

Hi Scrappy! I hope you had a nice & restful thanksgiving holiday ^^ I was just wondering if there are any plans for another charity corner? I've been really enjoying all of the recent updates to games and was just curious if this is another NC event we can expect to see revived. I have lots accumulating that I'd love to donate :D
Yes! you can definitely expect another Charity Corner in the near future!! We love them as well, donating and giving back is so important :)

Which categories of items do you think will be asked for in the next Charity Corner event? What have you been hoarding in preparation? Let us know in the comments!

Plot BD Challenger Updates
  • Posted by Herdy
  • Posted on December 5, 2017, 1:27 pm NST

Today you may have noticed a change when fighting the Wraiths in the battledome. New defeated images have been added which show the Snapjaw Wraith reverting to a Jetsam and the Deathball Wraith becoming a Meerca.

This builds on the dialogue since the plot began where characters have mentioned the Wraiths being possessed Neopets.

As an additional note, since the new steps were released last week, a cap has been introduced to the number of wraith items you can farm - this appears to be 35. This is retroactive, so if you already had more Ectoplasm from the Snapjaw Wraith, you will already be capped. We advise for the time being not making 'spare' versions of the potions we already used, in case the ingredients are needed later on.

Dream Pet Giveaway Returns
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on December 8, 2017, 4:40 pm NST

The annual Dream Neopet Giveaway is now live!

As in past years, you may select one of your Neopets and select a new colour/species combo that you would like them to transform into. 40 Neopets will be selected to be transformed. You must select your Neopet by December 22nd. (The page specifies "Monday" December 22nd, but we suspect they really meant Friday the 22nd.)

Things to Remember
If your Neopet is lucky enough to be selected, their clothing will be placed into your Closet before the transformation. You'll start off with a naked pet if you win. If you enter an Unconverted Neopet, that Neopet will be converted if selected to win.

Plot BD Challenger Glitch
  • Posted by Herdy
  • Posted on December 10, 2017, 12:53 pm NST

UPDATE: Both challengers are now back in the Battledome.

You may have noticed that both the Snapjaw Wraith and Deathball Wraith have disappeared from the Battledome today. This appears to be a glitch relating to today (10th) being the original date the plot was due to end. Scrappy has since confirmed on the neoboards that the end date of the plot has been pushed back, so there will be additional plot updates at some point and it is likely that both Wraiths will return.

If you can't wait for that (it will likely be fixed soon in the new week), remember that all three Wraith ingredients are still available on the Shop Wizard - you only need to actually fight Wraiths for the specific BD achievements.

Pet Lookup Captchas Removed
  • Posted by Herdy
  • Posted on December 11, 2017, 1:44 pm NST

UPDATE: The captchas are now working correctly - with no captchas on your own pet lookups, and the invisible style on all others.

Today it seems that captchas have been removed from Pet Lookups - completely, in this case, unlike the invisible versions that were added to Userlookups. It seems possible this is a glitch, and the invisible style captchas were intended to be added, as they are currently appearing when you view your own pet lookups. This follows on from an announcement in the NT Editorial saying that removal would continue if the Userlookup test was successful.
