Mystery Island Training School
At the Mystery Island Training School, you are able to train your Neopet for the Battledome. You can use this Training School only until your pet reaches Level 250, at which point you will need to go to the Secret Ninja Training School.
There are five attributes you can train, they are: Strength, Defence, Agility, Endurance and Level.
- Strength basically increases your pet's strength and how much damage it does in the Battledome.
- Defence increases your pet's defence level and decreases the amount of damage done to your pet in the Battledome.
- Agility increases your pet's speed in the Battledome.
- Endurance increases your Maximum Hit Points. It increases the denominator (e.g. 3/25), not the numerator unlike the Water Faerie at the Healing Springs, who increases the numerator.
- Level allows you to increase your other statistics (since they go proportionally).
All statistics are not allowed to go above twice your pet's level. The only exception is your Endurance (HP), which can only go three times higher than your level. However, if your Endurance is more than twice your level, you will not be able to train any other statistic. In order to train other statistics once again, you must train your level up until your Endurance is at most twice your level.
In addition, unlike the Swashbuckling Academy, once you select a course you cannot cancel it, even if you haven't paid yet. Make sure you've selected everything properly before starting!
Paying For Courses
Each time you take a course, you will be asked to pay with codestones which are chosen randomly each time. You can get them through random events, from other users' shops, or as prizes from playing Key Quest or fighting in the Battledome. When you want to pay (usually right after you start the course because time starts after payment), you should have your codestones in your inventory and then click the "here" in "Click here to pay." to pay and start your training. Courses cannot be cancelled.
Length of Courses
Basically, the higher level your pet is, the longer the training session will be. The table below shows the levels.
|Course Type||Level of Pet||Cost||Time|
|Grasshopper||20 and Below||One Codestone||2 Hours|
|Basic||21-40||2 Codestones||3 Hours||Intermediate||41-80||3 Codestones||4 Hours|
|Adept||81-100||4 Codestones||6 Hours|
|Advanced||101-120||5 Codestones||8 Hours|
|Expert||121-150||6 Codestones||12 Hours||Master||151-200||7 Codestones||18 Hours|
|Grand Master||201-250||8 Codestones||24 Hours|
Completing a Course
At the end of your training, you will need to press the button "Complete Course" in order for the new statistics to take effect. If not, your pet will sit there, waiting for you to press it. And you KNOW you don't want to see a pet staring at you. ;)
When you complete a course, your pet will only get 1 point in the trained area. Occasionally, however, you might get a 2 point boost and, rarely, a mega 3 point boost! (And on super rare occasions, up to 4 or 5 point boosts have been recorded.)
