A new FAQ has shown up for a Mall Event due to start later today - the Great NC Scavenger Hunt!

  • What is the Great NC Scavenger Hunt? The Great NC Scavenger Hunt is a new NC Mall event where you join a scavenger hunt and earn NC item prizes. To get started, there are three teams waiting with clues for you to work on. The three teams are: Noda's Cookie Quest, Ciphette's Mystery Search, and Lavisham's Giftwrap Grab. Choose one, two, or all three, and make sure you have a satchel from the NC Mall to hold all the items you'll need to go find. As a reward, for finding clues each day you'll earn an NC item prize. Please note that each team will require its very own satchel.

  • What is the duration of the Great NC Scavenger Hunt? The Great NC Scavenger Hunt event will run from May 21st to May 28th. You can participate any time within that period by purchasing a team (three teams to choose from) satchel in the NC Mall.

  • Will I be able to join the hunt and solve clues on days that have passed? Yes, you will be able to join the hunt and solve clues on days that have passed. Simply click "view clue" from the scavenger hunt list to start your hunt.

  • Is there a time limit for accepting my daily hunt prize? Yes, once the event ends on May 28th, you will no longer be able to hunt for NC item prizes.

  • Is there a bonus prize for participating in the Great NC Scavenger Hunt? Why yes, yes there is. There are three chances at a bonus NC item prize with this event shown below:

    1. Activate a team satchel within the first three Neopian days of the event. There will be three bonus NC items, each specific to their team satchel.
    2. Completing the team's scavenger hunt. Once you've finished the scavenger hunt for a team, you'll have the option of choosing a bonus item from a selected list of items. Yay!
    3. Completing the scavenger hunt for all three teams. For being fantastic, you get one more bonus prize. Enjoy!

  • I participated in the Great NC Scavenger Hunt, why didn't I receive a bonus NC prize? There are three ways to get a bonus NC item prize in this event. It's possible you just weren't eligible for that specific bonus prize. There are three chances at a bonus NC item prize with this event shown below:

    3. Completing the scavenger hunt for all three teams. For being fantastic, you get one more bonus prize. Enjoy!

  • How do I know which item to look for today? Check your list on the hub page. When an item is available to search for, the space will change from grey to white and you will be able to click on the "view clue" link.

  • I found a scavenger hunt item hidden in Neopia, why can't I collect it? You must have the satchel that corresponds to that item activated in order to pick up any prizes you see hidden around Neopia. Visit the hub page and activate a satchel to see the scavenger hunt list.

    1. Visit the NC Mall.
    2. Visit the Great NC Scavenger Hunt to purchase your specific team (three teams to choose from) satchel. Once you purchase your satchel, be sure to activate it before starting the hunt!

  • How do I activate my satchels? There are two ways to activate your satchels:

    1. Visit your inventory. Once in your inventory, click on your satchel and select "Activate Satchel".
    2. If you purchased your satchel from the Great NC Scavenger Hunt page you can activate it right after purchase. Once you see the confirmation page simply click the "Use Satchel" button and confirm the use of your satchel.

    After you activate your satchel, visit the Great NC Scavenger Hunt to start the hunt!

  • Can I participate in the Great NC Scavenger Hunt on my side account(s)? Yes, you can participate in this event on your side accounts.

  • Can I give a satchel to another user? Yes, satchels are like any other NC item and are giftable via NC Gift Box (one item per NC Gift Box).

Altador Cup 9 Sign Ups!
  • Posted by Herdy
  • Posted on May 22, 2014, 2:08 pm NST

Sign ups for the Altador Cup have opened! The Cup is due to start on June 2nd, however the rules page has a group of dates only partially updated for this year.

However, assuming the rules page is current... For those who remember last year (and the year before), the bracket system appears to be returning in exactly the same format. (Woo :( ). Those signing up for the ninth cup in a row will get a new item when signing up:


Altador Cup Bunting


(Other sign up bonuses from previous years remain the same).

HOWEVER, the AC FAQ appears to have been updated with this question:

  • How many scores can I submit? New caps on the number of times you can submit your scores have been instituted for this year's tournament. Everyone will still be able to strive to achieve their desired rankings and do the utmost to benefit their teams, only now they'll be able to do so without feeling like they have to spend all day playing. So, if you max out: take a deep breath, feel a sense of satisfaction, and maybe go for a walk around the block or make a tasty sandwich?


This potentially means there will be new caps on scores sent this year - the situation is unclear at the moment.
