We have another Korbat color for Korbat day. :smile: And it appears to be redrawn... but that doesn't mean anything. :tongue:

Lose to Punchbag Sid when he randomly comes into battle instead of Bob!

Random whilst diving into the Symol Hole in Meridell. You can dive in an infinite amount of times per day. Just be sure to hit the enter button each dive, no refreshing!
The Next Step!

The next step for the Lost Desert plot has been released. :smile: A full walkthrough is below. However, you need to finish and read your tablet and speak your prophecy to Nuria before doing this part.

First, you'll need the Repository chef, who is suspiciously familiar. :tongue: He is located on the second floor, row 20, column 5.

Talking to the chef (by going onto the square in front of him and pressing the "Talk to Chef" button), will tell you that he wishes he had a vacation. More important, however, he says he wants a souvenir from an "exotic locale." The only place to visit would be the Gift Shop of 1,000 Trinkets! The shop owner will hand you an Empty Vial.

The gift shop owner perks up. "You know, there is one thing I have... but I couldn't just give it away. I'd do a trade, though. If you can bring me some black smoke, that would be really cool. Here, I'll even give you this little vial I had lying around. Let me know if you find some!"

Next, visit your inventory and attach it to a pet as Battledome equipment. The next step would be getting some of the black smoke... from the Ruins Spirit in the battledome!

Once you have the vial equipped, make sure your pet is all fed up and has full HP. Challenge the Spirit and use the vial on your first turn. You need not win or lose, just be sure to use the vial against the Spirit. :smile:

As you might have noticed, the Empty Vial has become... Smoky Vial!

Better keep that lid on!

Unequip the Smoky Vial and return to the Gift Shop of 1,000 Trinkets. She'll take the vial from you and award you with a Temple of 1,000 Tombs Souvenir T-Shirt. Just what you wanted. Really.

...and all I got was this lousy t-shirt!

Finally, you'll need to visit the chef again. If you didn't move anywhere in the Repository, you should be right where you were, in front of the chef. :wink: Talk to him.

"Wow!" the chef exlaims as you hand him the souvenir. "Thanks so much! I never woulda been able to get one of these, I'm so busy working. Here, let me give you something in exchange."

He'll hand you a Useless Crystal, which I'm sure won't be too useless soon.

Royal Korbat Avatars

Female | Male

Spiffy, eh? Well, you can only have one. :sad: Depending on which one you want, you'll need to change your account's gender (whatever shows up in your lookup). You can change gender information here: http://www.neopets.com/userinfo.phtml (But read the next part first! It's confusing!)

Changing gender to FEMALE and visiting a RoyalGIRL Korbat will get you the MALE avatar.

Changing gender to MALE and visiting a RoyalBOY Korbat will get you the FEMALE avatar.

Be sure to read this and understand or else you'll end up with the wrong avatar!

Also, you can change your gender back with no fear of avatar loss. :wink:
(Matt Edit: Just to clarify -- this means you will NOT lose the avatar once you've got it, even if you switch your gender back. It's not like the Emo Usuki av - thank goodness!)
More Halloween Fun!
