Monster Battles

Heads up! Some of the information below in this guide may be out of date due to a recent app update. If you find differences in information, please send it in »

Monster Battles were introduced in version 1.6.0 of the game as new mechanic outside of the app's main story. The Claymaker has unleashed powerful monsters all across Neopia and in exchange for defeating them, Fyora is offering powerful rewards.

The Monster Battles serve as the main way of earning Ascension Stones, a currency introduced in version 1.6.0 that is needed to Ascend characters to new star rating. Therefore, participating in the Monster Battles is advised to level up your team to be powerful enough to continue in the main story.

You can access Monster Battles from the icon on the app's main screen after loading it up.

Each week, one of four possible bosses will be available in the Monster Battles, one representing each element. Although the prizes are similar between bosses, each offers characters according to their own element. Bosses do not drop random loot after every battle as normal enemies do in the main game. Instead, there are fixed loot drops for 'tiers', that is, beating the boss a specific number of times. Each time you defeat the boss, it increases in power, making unlocking each new tier progressively more difficult.

In order to participate in a battle, you will need Monster Keys. You will be charged 3 keys per battle (successful or not) for a full team taken into battle. If you select an additional friend or random Neopet to help you, you will be charged an additional 2 keys per battle. Each time a new boss appears, your key count will be reset to 20. However, new keys can be purchased from the app's Gem Store for real life money at any time. If you key total drops below 10, you will begin to earn additional free keys at a rate of 1 per 8 hours until you are once again over 10 keys.

As the Monster Battles take place outside of the main game, they all share a unique board that has different positions of potions and bombs to the one you play with in the story:

There is also a leaderboard, where you can see how many times people have beaten the current boss. This leaderboard will reset each time a new boss is released. Currently, the leaderboard maxes out at 77 wins, even if you have more.

Bosses

Currently, there are four bosses that are available. It is unknown if more will be added in the future.
