The plot has officially begun--things to do, anyway!
As a first step, head on over to the Faerie Resistance Headquarters
, where you'll be greeted by Aethia:
I was just talking to the others about our preparations. Meanwhile, why don't you pick up a shield for yourself? I daresay you'll be needing it pretty soon.
You can also click on the medals on the table by Kaia to see your achievements
, of which one you can claim a prize for already.
From there, you can begin interpreting the murmurings of Kaia:

in one spot.
"As a first step, head on over to the Faerie Resistance Headquarters, where you'll be greeted by Aethia"
I get nothing when I go there
Brittish accent: GERONIMO!!!!!!
The glowing chest in the corner is a NC event thing.
Clicking on Kaia gets a word scramble.
Golden Ivy Leaf?
Maybe it has something to do with the fact that there were no rose vendors around the festival...
I have figured out it does not exceed ten letters.
Almost all letters in the puzzle change everytime you refresh, but some do not. Click those
I really hope the achievements are glitchy because otherwise it looks like I missed my only shot at getting the lockpick achievement because their instructions sucked.
, 11/17/2017, 7:47 pm NST
I entered in the scramble solution and it transports me to another page. A chest came up but it lagged, so I refreshed. Now the chest doesn't come up. The whole site seems to be lagging though. Same for ya'll?
yup definitely lagging for me. I can't even get the http://www.neopets.com/twr/lockpuzzle/lock.phtml page to load
Yes everything is lagging for me too.
What's Going On Here?
The place is enveloped by a purple haze. As you struggle to see in front of you, a sudden feeling of helplessness overcomes you and makes you want to get away as soon as you can.
Anyone else encountered this?
, 11/17/2017, 7:57 pm NST
Pretty sure I missed getting the badge cause it lagged. Now I don't get that message anymore, nor do I have the badge. :/
@r0se626: where did you find that?
I didn't get the lock picking achievement either. Has anyone here gotten it?
the purple haze appears around the jelly and omelette pages. The current guess is that the lockpick achievement is granted if you have <5 misses.
I didn't get the lock picking either :/
the chest game won't show up...I'm in Safari. going to try in Google now :/
, 11/17/2017, 8:36 pm NST
Are we sure that "refreshing and checking which letters remain the same" is the actual answer? The correct letters followed a sequence. Mine was 5 incorrect letters, 2 correct, 1 incorrect, 1 correct, and repeat. I can't seem to find the "clue" that would lead to that though
I refreshed the chest if I got a lot of misses, and I think I had 1 or 2 misses when I solved it and got the Lock Picking Achievement.
I can only get one of the Snap ones, though. even though the meter is over 100%. Maybe we only get one of those?
ANCHORMANAGE... and then it finished off "Anchor Management" for me. The letters move around a little inside the lines, but they're always in the same lines and always int he same order.
Pops up a box:
This Must Be It! - Better head over there....
Also pops up a little green box that said something about an achievement. Didn't get a Screenie of that part.
I got the lock picking achievement, top left it said 0 misses.
The chest game didnt load for me at first. After changing browser and allowing flash it worked (Firefox).
I think the three BD achievements are:
1st achievement: Beat the monster X times on easy
2nd achievement: Beat the monster X times on medicore
3rd achievement: Beat the monster X times on hard
However, it seems that the first two achievements are broken and won't give a prize. It appears that, if you finished them though, they appear green when you hover over them.
As a backup of my theory I had one player, that could only win on easy. All three achievements were grey at the start when he hovered over them. When he hit 30% progress bar (only fighting on easy), the first achievement turned green for him. The other two remain grey.
I fought on all difficulties several times and I got the prize from the 3rd achievement and they other two are green for me.
Gives me a link to Anchor Management, click "OK" or "Not Now"
I click "OK" and while it messes up the screen a bit, it gives another puzzle. "Faeries' Chest".
just defeated the wraith, now what?
, 11/17/2017, 8:59 pm NST
The BD achievements are 30%, 70%, 100% (doesn't matter what difficult you fight them, just takes longer on easy etc.) But only the 100% achievement is working right now.
thexc: Ah cool, sounds reasonable! Thanks
We have steps up linked in the post for deciphering Kaia's letters, opening up the locked faerie chest, and for unlocking the battling achievements.
From there it gets a bit hazy...
@thaliel: Check out your progress bar on the Achievements page. You need to fill it to 100%.
, 11/17/2017, 9:05 pm NST
It took so long to do that chest puzzle, sometimes it wouldn't load and others it would freeze up.
*shakes plot until achievements fall out* I should get the lockpicking, dammit! Your instructions were unclear!
It won't let me do anything.
Nothing about joining, when I click the letters that repeat in the puzzle like the guide says nothing come up, can't do anything
Hopefully they fix everything and I can try again tomorrow without it counting against me.
still struggling with that letter thing
it's so hard to get it aligned
I tried the code pictured (qasalan delights) and it went through.
Getting the lock pieces synced is impossible, though.
Mine ended up being "Haunted House" Seems like a very fitting spot for wraith to show up =P
I don't have the lockpick achievement either x_x;
, 11/17/2017, 9:35 pm NST
got zero misses on the lockpick puzzle, received the achievement! you receive the lock picking kit from it.
Can't get the chest puzzle to load. I can hear the music play on a blank page then it kicks me back to the main plot page.
Got it to work, had to enable flash and midi access on Chrome. Hope this helps other people.
, 11/17/2017, 9:45 pm NST
@demento_recraves i had this problem, it solved
itself by just reloading and letting it load without touching anything LOL. could it be a flash problem?
, 11/17/2017, 9:47 pm NST
@yekith - Go to the achievements page. You can get the shield/badge there. It's in one of the gift boxes.
@JN staff - Thank you guys for the walkthrough!
I'm so excited this plot has finally started, even though the lag is terrible
None of it is done in flash from what I've seen. I suspect it's just the lagginess.
Re: "What's going on here?"
I've found that message at the Giant Jelly and Omelette dailies constantly. I believe it has something to do with Taelia's Brewing Centre and the first hint?
"When one thing ceases to exist, another takes its place."
Jelly, Omelette, ... What's the third?
When I was playing the lock picking game, I missed a lot. I got the Staff of Devilish Laughter, but I didn't unlock the Amateur Lock Picker achievement. Does this mean that I'll never be able to get it??? If I would have known that I could only have a certain number of misses, I would have been more careful!
I imagine there will be more chests to unlock therefore more opportunities.
So how do we get wraith ectoplasm??
If the chest puzzle screws up on you, the information for it is stored in your browser. Clear absolutely everything and try again.
It's too late for me because I didn't know misses mattered for this Achievement. But if you miss too many times, clearing everything out on your browser also erases your misses and sets them back to zero.
i am so pleasantly surprised! i can't wait to make progress on potions...
, 11/17/2017, 11:04 pm NST
Scarlieoh--if you go to the omelette and jelly pages (things that replenish when you take some), there's a message and some purplish haze. Can't think of what the third might be right now.
I tried to do Mystic Murmurs, paste the letters on Notepad, clicked on Fonts to shrink 'em and use Word Wrap. Is it ok to use Word Wrap or no? It still didn't work out for me.
Change the font in Notepad to Consolas or Courier or another fixed width font and they will line up nicely. Maximize Notepad to full screen and delete the ends of the lines that wrap (if any)
When I click on the medals and go to the achievement page, my Amateur Lock Picker is still grey and doesn't unlock. The prize is the Staff of Devilish Laughter, isn't it? Because I have it in my inventory even if the achievement doesn't work
(I have finished the battledome step)
, 11/18/2017, 3:07 am NST
Does anyone else also get a LOT of RE's today? I got 4 already!
, 11/18/2017, 3:46 am NST
Ok, I did the murmers and the chest, got the Battledome challenger and got that achievement too and now the chest is grey again?
How do you get the chest? It redirects me to the headquaters, no matter what browser I use. So far I tried firefox, seamonkey, chrome and IE and removed adblock. Still can't get the page to stay
. Did also send a ticket but I fear that the plot is over for me before it even started
Going back to the puzzle helped (plus clicking 10 times on the go to chest button)
To get to the chest page, you have to go to the link from Murmurs part first.
To get the Amateur Lock Picker achievement, you can continue to play the chest where there is a link 'Amateur Lock Picker' in the same page as you first played it. You will receive a Lock Picking Kit for clearing that achievement. Hope that helps
My Joining resistance chest is grey for me
What can I do?
Got up to the potion making, and I'm stuck now.
The jelly is currently gone so i'll have to wait for it to come back before the haze returns.
Thank you for the advice with the fonts! It made things so much easier.
I did a mix of easy and medium for the wraith fighting and only got the last achievement.
I'll try to look for the last haze location and keep you updated on my results!
Oh man have you guys tried out the new weapons?!?
Staff of Devilish Laughter: 13air (against wraith) 9air against others (used pant devil and koi warrior so far)
Poisonous Spear Wand: same between wraith and non-wraith. 2-5 physical (that i've seen), 5 fire, 6 earth and 5 light. Total 18-21icons from what i've observed.
Wait! I just got 6 physical with my poisonous spear wand. (dealing a nice 211 damage! man i love this thing! nice upgrade from my ylanas blaster and brynns sword)
Poisonous Spear Wand: same between wraith and non-wraith. 2-6 physical (that i've seen), 5 fire, 6 earth and 5 light. Total 18-21icons from what i've observed.
Every single time I refreshed the Chest page I got an ad.
And I'm premium. grrr.
, 11/18/2017, 7:14 am NST
Ok, got my Chest achievement. Had to do not more than 3 misses at the lock .
I got the wraith stuff at the omelette
, 11/18/2017, 8:05 am NST
Anyone having trouble with the appearance of the faerie event after finishing with Kayla?
, 11/18/2017, 8:42 am NST
Hey good news! If you missed the lock picking achievement the first time like me, you can go back there (http://www.neopets.com/twr/lockpuzzle/lock.phtml) and do it again! And it worked smoothly and easily this morning (0 misses on my first try).
There's one part of the event that I'm very confused about. Where/How do you get the Wraith Ectoplasm? Do they come from the NC event? Do you have to keep battling a Wraith for them?
I have completed my achievemente (minus the BD that are currently glitched or whatever keeps them from showing)
But I can't make sense of Taelia's part of the plot.
Can somebody recomend good weapons and shields to use at the BD? I used Hanso's charm, Oasis Tonic, Staff of Devilish laughter. Sadly, I don't have millions of NP to spend on the good (more than 1m) stuff
It sad that you can't try many times the chest one , like in all previous events.
, 11/18/2017, 9:50 am NST
I saw on the boards that someone got the
, 11/18/2017, 9:50 am NST
Ectoplsma by battling the wreath.
for the notices, i got one not listed, "Take care of our land - do not litter!" for the background scraps
Whitht the direct link to the chest you posted a few minutes ago, I was able to redo the chest and have the achievement. Thank you for the link!
@jessalynn: Ectoplasm isn't live just yet. The person who posted screenshots of winning the Ectoplasm in the BD were fake.
Whats that girl? Little Jimmy is trapped in a well?
How did I get the Staff of Devilish Laughter?
Thanks for the Walktrough
The staff is rewarded when you complete the battle achievement of killing the snapjaw multiple times (5 on hard, 10 on medium, 20 on easy).
Consolas or Courier for the puzzle? That might help next time. I got so irritate, I finally just went through, systematically removing one letter from each line, repeating to help find the stuff that lines up.
Does anyone else have trouble with the evil locks? I ragequit earlier on it.
Okay, apparently it didn't want to work earlier. When I was doing it before, I'd click when I thought they were aligned, and half the time it wouldn't react, or I'd lose a part I aligned earlier. Tried again just now, and it was fine.
lag, lag, lag...
, 11/18/2017, 5:28 pm NST
Is that a (very bad) joke or what? In the Battledome I cannot use the weapons I have equipped but only one item named The fist.
Is this happening to anybody else?
, 11/18/2017, 5:40 pm NST
I forgot to say I'm playing at easy level, and even there, it takes a lot of time to beat the bad guy with that only puny "weapon"
To all of you who are still looking for the third place to find wraith ectoplasm, it's not at the Kreludor Meteor Crashsite
; I checked.
From what the dialogue was today, it seems they're actually canonizing wraith-colored pets! They weren't referenced before then, I think. It also sounds like by the end of the plot, wraith might not be a pet color anymore! Fyora might "cure" them!
Hey guys, I've found some of the Taelia's items URLs! :O
http://images.neopets.com/items/gif_fang.gif http://images.neopets.com/items/gif_fur.gif http://images.neopets.com/items/gif_venom.gif http://images.neopets.com/items/gif_blood.gif
Check out these cool spoilers:
I helped Kayla and it led me to the Turdle Racing, but when I go there, I don't encounter a light faerie at all. Anyone else experiencing this?
My friend also didn't see the light faerie, but when she went back to the headquarters the link to solve the chest puzzle was activated at the bottom. Maybe a popup was blocked?
Is there a way to reset my mystic murmurs puzzle? I'm locked out of achieving the light faerie achievement right now because I missed too many times on the light picking puzzle, and so I was hoping to be able to redo the earlier steps to unlock it again.
You can use the potion on the places filled with the purple fog, so after visiting the jelly and omelette pages and using the potion, the fog disappears. Also, the first potion achievement is glitched as even though I've made two potions, I didn't get the achievement.
Same here, Kingdom, hopefully it gets fixed later
I can't use my potion at the jelly or omelet, clicking the 'use potion' just reloads my page
Ok... same problem here. I went to the Giant Jelly and used my first potion (that disappeared from my inventory) but the fog is still there and the page keeps refreshing. I tried to use my second potion but nothing changed and the second potion didn't disappear from my inventory. The achievement is still grey too.
I have beaten the daggone wraith with a current score of 960%. Didn't know about the number of battles for the different levels though. What I DID find that gives you untold amounts of ECTOPLASM is using the 2 weapons you were awarded to battle the wraith. I get the best results using the Staff of Devilish Laughter as the first weapon, and the Poisonous Spear Wand in the second weapons place. Once you have however many ECTOPLASM'S you feel like winning (has to be at least 3) take them to the headquarters and visit Taelia. If you have at least 3 ectoplasm's in your inventory, the 3x Ectoplasm text will be black. Click on it. You will be given a potion called Taelias Concoction I. I have like 30 of them in my SDB right now...now what? lol Hope this helps you folks
When you go to the giant jelly and the page reloads, try clicking the 'use potion' button again on the reloaded page. That worked for me
Okay, I've brewed the potion twice, and cleared the fog at both the omelet and jelly -- but the achievement for brewing a potion still seems to be locked. Is that the case for other folks?
It's getting near Thanksgiving and I'm thinking a lot about gratitude, so I just wanted to say
THANK YOU Jn Community!
I get so frustrated when I can't do plots or don't understand what to do next. I Rage quit, or need to replace mice
. Everyone here sharing what you know really means a lot to me (my laptop thanks you too. it doesn't like the idea of being thrown out the window)
In case people didn't notice, brewing a potion DOES unlock the achievement, just it either doesn't have a prize for it or its prize is currently glitched, similar to the first 2 battle achievements.
You can notice this because it's green.
You can battle the Wraith as many times as you want and you'll always get an ectoplasm. I have more than 100 of those now. And I fought at 3000%.
Usualy, in BD events like this, the more you fight, the more points you got for the prize shop.
Well, it looks like I won't be able to participate in this event.
I've never really used the battledome before and after a few unsuccessful tries, I've learned that now is not the time to start. Faeries are my favorite, so this is extra frustrating and disappointing.

@laur: a month ago they tell everyone to get their pet battle ready. :c have you asked around what a good set is for your pets stats? even if your stats are low sometimes just investing in a powerful weapon and healers could do you some good.
, 11/19/2017, 12:34 pm NST
they **did tell
I am having the same issue as some others here. At the Giant Jelly I click 'use potion' but it has not effect. The page keeps refreshing and the potion is still in my inventory. FF 57. I've tried disabling add-ons but still no love.
how come the "use potion" prompt still pops up even after I already used the potion?
OK I restarted my browser and the potion is gone and the smoke seems to have cleared, so if you run into the infinite refresh bug try that.
I spoke too soon. Having the same issue now with the omelette page, and it's still not updating. Not sure what's causing it now...
I think it's just a lag thing. You just have to keep trying and eventually it 'takes'. My omelette page is cleared now.
It doesn't seem to want to work in FF. I had to switch to Chrome.
A lot of stuff seems broken and glitchy
...but I can't right now.
The achievement tip on http://www.jellyneo.net/?go=the_wraith_resurgence&page=faeries_chest isn't working. "If you didn't get it the first time, you may go back to the chest and try again. (This may be a daily.) " I can't. When I click the link it loads at first, but then redirects me back here http://www.neopets.com/twr/ instead of starting the puzzle.

My pet is on 12 HP and has 58 attack, 55 defense and 45 agility. He still beats Wraith on the easy setting, with the free weapons. I just dose him with potions in between fights.
@morganjoisle, that was happening to me, too, using Firefox. I switched to Chrome and it worked. A lot of people are reporting that FF doesn't work for that step.
I got the omelette and jelly pages cleared by using the potion and then before it could reload, trying to grab some omelette or jelly. The next time it reloaded the page, it was cleared. Hope that helps.
I can confirm what the_lady_j mentioned -- if you claim some omelette/jelly, then use the potion, you'll have the page reload telling you that you 'cannot take more than one share a day' -- but the potions work and disappear from your inventory.
(Forgot to mention I'm using Firefox for this step.)
Is anyone else having issues with the second Taelia's Concoction I? I'm trying to go to the Giant Omelette (I've visited the Giant Jelly first) to clear the purple smoke, but there's nothing there. I've even moved from Firefox to Chrome, but the same thing occurs. I'm just very confused!
I haven't gotten a single ectoplasm and I've battled this wraith roughly 5 bajillion times. Any advice?
If fighting these will even give points I wonder if it's better that I just spam the easy or do a hard whenever I'm at full health, I can do easy without ever needing to use a potion outside of battledome, Hard I need to heal after every round, I can go maybe 2 mediums before needing a heal. If it's going off of battledome score seems easy would be best.
Ok apparently you need to battle with the weapons they gave you. Now I'm rolling in ectoplasm.
@thatgirlmarie not really. If you play on hard you still get them every battle, regardless of weapons used.
So... the achievements are still bugged? I'm surprised it's still not corrected after 4 days.
Uggg I miss noScript. So adblock is still working, and doing an excessively good job... So when I visit the giant jelly and giant omelette pages it acts as if they're still loading continuously, and the purple haze and the normal page switch back and forth. It gets EXTREMELY laggy, my computer fan starts whirring, and when I click "use potion" nothing happens. When I refresh the page the same thing occurs. I'm on the newest version of Firefox, by the way - the one which noScript hasn't updated for yet.
I had success clearing the haze with a process similar to what the_lady_j said above. On both the Omelette and Jelly, I was only able to get them cleared after clicking "use potion" on the first page, then collecting the piece of omelette/jelly between refreshes, then clicking "use potion" again on that page.
I used Firefox v52 ESR (I don't use add-ons on FF as it's glitchy for me anyway~) and had a lot of fun trying to clear the purple haze. =P I headed to the Giant Omelette page first... which slowed FF to a crawl. The Use Potion pop up eventually appeared before slowing the browser seemingly to a standstill. I clicked Use Potion anyway and a good five minutes later it disappeared. The browser then crashed, with the purple haze having never loaded in the first place! I put FF back on and the Omelette page loaded fine and the Potion was gone from my Inventory. ^^;; After eventually gaining further Escoplasm from the Snapjaw Wraith (I got the first batch straightaway without any special weaponry but was forced to equip the Staff to get any more~), I headed to the Giant Jelly. Cue crawl, standstill... but no crash upon the Jelly reloading. Yay? Never did see that haze, though. =P
Since the Snapjaw Wraith hits with 3 dark and 3 physical, I just found the perfect set of weapons to use on it.
1) Hansow Charisma Charm. Block all dark and does 10 icons damage.
2) Altadorian Swordbreaker. Blocks all phsical and does 5 icons damage.
Using these two weapons prevents it from hitting you and you can beat it to death all day long. Easy, Medium and Hard make no difference, it still cannot hit you!
I substituted Altadorian Swordbreaker for a Battle Faerie Dagger. This blocks all icons in easy mode, but not medium or hard.
I am looking forward to getting an Altadorian Swordbreaker so I can put your theory to the test.
It works! If you use Hanso's Charisma Charm and the Altadorian Swordbreaker the Snapjaw wrath cannot hit you!
Easy- 3 physical 3 dark
Medium- 13 physical 13 dark
Mard- 16 physical 16 dark
