New Event: Lost Fragments
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on March 15, 2023, 10:57 am NST

UPDATE, Mar 16th: Day 2 of the event has begun! If you missed it yesterday, you can still visit Faerieland to find your shards, they will just award fewer points.

A new event has just launched in Neopia: Lost Fragments!

It's an event inspired by the Faerie's Hope app, and features Fyora and Luxinia (previously unnamed!), the light faerie who we meet in the game that was frozen on a small surviving part of Faerieland in the sky.

The event appears to be a simple scavenger hunt. Your job is to find the fallen shards of pink soil around Faerieland. Each day, there will be 5 new shards to collect, and if you collect them on release day, you'll receive 5 points each. (If you collect them a day late, you'll only get 1 point per shard.) 175 total points are possible. The shards are randomly hidden on the two maps for each Neopian.

The first shard you find will award an event avatar:

Your points can be used in a special prize shop, containing new exclusive items and some exciting rare-item re-releases!

For full event details, including a breakdown of the prize shop, check out our guide:

UPDATE, 3:10 PM NST: A new Neopets newsletter is hitting inboxes, and of note, a new Neocash giveaway is being launched on Gleam for a chance at 2,500 NC, 5,000 NC, or 10,000 NC. If you're interested, you'll need to sign up with an email or social account, and complete various tasks like following or liking things across various social platforms. Some tasks are as easy as clicking links.

Special codes that can be input for entries are: LOVELYLUXINIA and CALABRUS.

That's amazing, finally something new and tied to Faeries Hope, thanks TNT.
apophis324, March 15, 2023 11:06 AM NST
This may not be the Blaze I'm looking for, but it's the Destruction of Faerieland I deserve. Wait, I didn't participate in Faerie's Ruin.. And I do deserve Blaze.. This metaphor went south fast, I apologise. Yay new weeklong event with exclusive prizes~!
hockeycabbage, March 15, 2023 11:21 AM NST
I know neopians and they're gonna whine about this but I gotta say, if netdragon pushed an app to make money, this is a great way to integrate it while also giving the community more in game items that have needed deflating!!! Which is excellent!!!! I only feel joy about this.
purplebin, March 15, 2023 11:28 AM NST
I cannot find the 5th shard...
sarah0451, March 15, 2023 11:34 AM NST
At least we have an event to take part in! Glad they're trying to tie in the mobile app with the site.
premium17, March 15, 2023 11:41 AM NST
More free expensive items for almost no effort
serpentshrine, March 15, 2023 11:47 AM NST
Oh! I actually quite like the avatar

Maybe I'll finally log into neopets after so, so long
theearth, March 15, 2023 12:00 PM NST
WOW! That prize shop is insane! Finally something good
insane000illusions, March 15, 2023 12:07 PM NST
Are the shards all on just the main page for Faerieland? I've only been able to find 4 for today.
theawedude, March 15, 2023 12:08 PM NST
Interesting, a new weapon. and old (tcg) cards! I've been collecting those lately, in preparation for the new Trading Card *game* coming out this year.
recklesse, March 15, 2023 12:09 PM NST
They are in Faerie City as well as Faerieland. Both are linked from the hub page for convenience.
dave - JN Staff, March 15, 2023 12:14 PM NST
Our guide is now live!

It includes event details, of course, along with a breakdown of the prize shop and some tips on how to find shards if you're stuck.
breezydreams, March 15, 2023 12:16 PM NST
The main Faerieland page and the main Faerie City page are the places to look. No shops or activity pages to look in.
purplebin, March 15, 2023 12:28 PM NST
I still can't find my 5th shard, and nothing is showing up when I look at "inspect element".
Actually, that doesn't even come up when I right-click...
pium_vergilius, March 15, 2023 12:28 PM NST
I changed the page to english (from spanish), but half of the items are still in spanish
pium_vergilius, March 15, 2023 12:31 PM NST
Seems like faerie land is still in spanish, for some reason
dave - JN Staff, March 15, 2023 12:37 PM NST
@purplebin: You on Firefox? It's just "Inspect" on Firefox (web version only).
purplebin, March 15, 2023 12:51 PM NST
Firefox and Chrome, neither is showing any shard when I "inspect". None of the other 4 shards were hard to see! My niece is having the same problem, too.
purplebin, March 15, 2023 1:10 PM NST
I can't help thinking my count is wrong, since it's not showing another shard in Inspect, in either land.
claytonskitten, March 15, 2023 1:37 PM NST
Any updates on the NC cap in the prize shop? Not willing to gamble 150NC on it currently. Too busy deciding how to spend all 175 pts for this event. LOL
anunsureneopian, March 15, 2023 1:47 PM NST
I recommend refreshing either faerieland or faerie city as the shards change position over the maps with every refresh.
dave - JN Staff, March 15, 2023 1:49 PM NST
@purplebin: Sanity check... are you checking both Faerieland maps? You need to check both the main Faerieland map (with the Healing Springs) and Faerie City (with the shops/personality quiz/etc).
dave - JN Staff, March 15, 2023 1:50 PM NST
@claytonskitten: You can find the capsule and its contents in our Item Database:

biediep, March 15, 2023 1:57 PM NST
Finally something to get excited about again With a max amount of possible points it's going to be tough deciding what to spend them on, though!
puffkins2000, March 15, 2023 2:02 PM NST
Ahh, a new event! Exciting!
spacehug, March 15, 2023 2:29 PM NST
Yay! Exciting.
contessa, March 15, 2023 2:34 PM NST
I clicked around a while and I found 4 but the 5th one for today is most elusive, so I gave up for awhile. I thought I had found all 5 but my count does not show it, just 4

I even tried the Inspect Element thingie but it doesn't show any more to be found.

At least it is something to do! And we get prizes!
topaz644, March 15, 2023 2:37 PM NST
I've no clue if it makes any difference at all but I returned to the event page after finding each shard, just because I wanted to minimize glitches.

As far as I know doing that may have caused ALL the shards to disappear on me but that was my decision. lol

I got all 5 of my shards.
purplebin, March 15, 2023 2:44 PM NST
Okay, I finally found the last shard. It was well hidden and camouflaged! What a relief.
biediep, March 15, 2023 2:48 PM NST
I wouldn't mind if they turned this into a daily afterwards with a random prize (not from the current prize shop) each day.
dave - JN Staff, March 15, 2023 3:06 PM NST
@biediep: There have been a lot of event features over the years that I wish had turned into regular site features. Not all of them would have made sense (e.g. digging out a pyramid every day...) but some stuff like Crewdoku and Fiendish Formations would have made nice little mini-games.
dave - JN Staff, March 15, 2023 3:08 PM NST
@purplebin: Yay, glad you found it! Weird that the inspect element thing wasn't showing it 🤔
verdego, March 15, 2023 3:13 PM NST
Oh man YES! Finally something NEW and something that tries to integrate an off-site app? Works for me. It's got some good prizes and a little character. It's not much, but I'm happy to have it.
lia_19_85, March 15, 2023 3:25 PM NST
I needed some time to find the last one, and I didn't spot it right away, because it was hidden in a shop sign. For some reason I didn't look at the text that much.
Maybe that helps someone else .
topaz644, March 15, 2023 3:31 PM NST
I find it interesting, depending on whether I'm in my Guild (battle), my usual event page (oldpd) or assorted other boards, they all have prizes they are excited about. Something for everyone- and I have no clue what I will go for
contessa, March 15, 2023 3:37 PM NST
lia_19_85 - thanks for the advice! I went back and right away I saw the last shard on the Bookshop sign! Yay!
mavegibson, March 15, 2023 3:52 PM NST
Now I'm all paranoid because my counter says 5 but I am not 100% sure I found all 5. I lost count.
josie, March 15, 2023 4:00 PM NST
Oh, I love this! I was so ready for a fun event
topaz644, March 15, 2023 4:05 PM NST
@josie- not sure about the fun part- grab 5 shards each day while being told where they are. Looks like tnt's way of spreading around expensive items via a prize shop.

The 'fun' is what rare item do I want? So, not so much a fun event.
twistedlittledreamer, March 15, 2023 4:06 PM NST
yay, finally a new plot! and the prizes look awesome!
topaz644, March 15, 2023 4:08 PM NST
yay, finally a new plot! lolol

we can dream
topaz644, March 15, 2023 4:18 PM NST
There isn't a lot of sound on Neopets but boy, the sound of shell accounts and new accounts being made is deafening.
forever_future, March 15, 2023 4:31 PM NST
I kind of like this; a quick and easy event to do.
But my brain is messing me up and telling me I'm missing a step somewhere. Thank goodness there's the counter to tell us how many shards we've found.
zanzia, March 15, 2023 5:49 PM NST
Thank you so much for the news and guide. Truly appreciated.
caelan63, March 15, 2023 7:19 PM NST
Can only find 4. Inspect gives me nothing. the fh stuff isn't even there on either map...
galifan, March 15, 2023 8:27 PM NST
Thanks for the guides! I hope this isn't the "plot" they were promising. It's a nice event though.
lokaula, March 15, 2023 9:47 PM NST
Anyone else having trouble entering the contest/giveaway? The link on the website doesn't work...https://gleam.io/NirSe/neopets-faeries-hope-lost-fragments-neocash-giveaway

Her name is Luxinia? 😮
That's beautiful! 😄
kookybloo, March 16, 2023 12:34 AM NST
On mobile, the shards are just overlaid on the map...you can't miss 'em
sakibou, March 16, 2023 12:40 AM NST
Ah, I'm so sad.
I saw this a few hours ago, but I was a bit busy and misunderstood the post. Assumed it was for the Faerie's Hope app. And, as it turns out, there is no day 1.5 for this event. *despair*

I'm just so disappointed, since I was here on time and could have done it if I'd paid closer attention...
sakibou, March 16, 2023 12:42 AM NST
And it's not even the points I'm worried about. It's the possibility of a bonus for doing things on launch day. I just cannot believe I was 30 minutes late.
apophis324, March 16, 2023 1:04 AM NST
It really sucks that there's, once again, no 1.5 day starting period (even if it doesn't effect me). When will they learn that not every player lives in the United States? Had I not done the daily feeding on my side account when I did (just jellies and omelettes from my main, relax) I totally would have missed the button for this event. And since Daylight Savings is still a thing I now start playing after midnight instead of just before..

TNT, if you want to do better, start by doing things better! Announce a thing and start it the day after. Don't start something on a random day and hope everyone gets the memo! >: |
ixigirl23, March 16, 2023 1:27 AM NST
American's get screwed also. I do mine in the early morning and they generally don't have new games available for several hours after changeover so if you do your dailies early you miss it. If you aren't going to give 1.5 days at least give us the full 24 hours
biediep, March 16, 2023 1:48 AM NST
I was surprised to see shards again just now and that they actually counted. I can't believe they messed up the 1,5 day thing. So sorry to everyone who missed out
lia_19_85, March 16, 2023 1:52 AM NST
When will they learn? They've messed that up in so many events.

I'm glad I'm not affected this time, but only because I didn't trust them on this (rightly so).
Got their mail late at night, right before heading to bed. Even though my partner thought I'm crazy, I went back to the office to switch on the PC for this. Glad I did, disappointed that I had to.
aleu1986, March 16, 2023 4:06 AM NST
I am so glad I decided to check in on Neo just before going to bed last night, as my time zone is 9 hours ahead of NST. Luckily the news had been updated, and the event was live, but lots of people in other parts of the world would have missed it yesterday...
beedeebee, March 16, 2023 7:16 AM NST
Okay, so yay for some kind of an event - will this be shard only, or will there be some kind of plot? Only time will tell! But chiming in with others to say boo that we didn't get 1.5 days. So disappointing that I did dailies early enough that it was before the event's release. Such a strict counting of the first day, especially when other events take account of that and give us the 1.5, is a bummer.
rodgerflint, March 16, 2023 7:41 AM NST
I was staying late working on my computer while housesitting for my folks and at 11:53 pm nst I happened to decide to check JN just in case something interesting happened on neo for a change and blammo. I just barely managed to find them all before midnight. I really think for events like these that A) are sudden and have great rewards it would be worth it for TNT to warn people like a week in advance there's a new event cropping up.
faellie_ridiculous, March 16, 2023 7:48 AM NST
I had to refresh for the 5th shard to show up in Faerie City. Found three on Faerieland map and the other two on Faerie City map. The shards are tiny but they do sparkle so not terribly difficult to see.

Looking forward to spending my prize points. Definitely want another Faerie petpet!
blue_star_51, March 16, 2023 11:36 AM NST
Even though I was not affected, I'm really disappointed that TNT has fallen back to an old mistake that had been fixed for so many years (the 0.5 first day of event).
kamero, March 16, 2023 2:04 PM NST
crying, missed the first day of shards as i only do my dailies in the morning as well - sure hope they do something, otherwise sol i guess
kamero, March 16, 2023 4:32 PM NST
okay, nevermind - i went back out of desperation, refreshed a bunch and i was able to find 10 today.
pikachu315111, March 16, 2023 6:02 PM NST
Honestly I think they should get rid of the "have to complete task on release day" requirement for most events, if not all of them. All it does is punish those who either forget to do the daily task required of them or put an unnecessary time limit on a task (and when it's something like a tough GMC score, you're being double punished for not having the free time).

There is NO reason that, if you can still collect yesterday's crystals, that you only get 1 point from them instead of 5. Why? What about the crystals that they need to be delivered on day of release? Do they lose their power? If so, then why are you giving any points for the old crystals? Just give the full points, the "punishment" for a person beginning late should just be having to spend extra time finding all the crystals to catch up.

Another example was the recent Neopies. I missed one release day. I forgot. BUT I still voted in EVERY category. Because, even though if you miss the release day you don't get the final prize, they still give you 72 HOURS (3 DAYS) to vote for a category! Sure, we get the prize for voting, but if I voted for every category just like a person who voted on every day of release, which should be the BARE MINIMUM requirement, why was I locked out of the final prize? What does it matter if I voted on day of release, the 2nd day, or the last day? The votes aren't tallied up until the voting time is over, my vote still counted!

I get the idea on paper, it awards those who does their diligence and completes the tasks every day. But, as I went over with the above examples, not only doesn't it make sense, why should anyone care about the time someone else completes the task? If someone wants to spend extra time on a task or forgets, that's their business, I only care about doing mine. I don't mind if we both get the same final prize even though they spent a few extra days on one task and/or had to catch-up. Or, at the very least, give some wiggle room
pikachu315111, March 16, 2023 6:18 PM NST
Or, at the very least, give some wiggle room where it's a few release days we have to miss instead of being one-and-done.


Guess I should talk about the event? Well, interesting idea, that there is some part of Faerieland still in the air and from it they're going to essentially "grow" a new sky Faerieland. I actually had this thought myself, though I don't remember if I ever put it into one of my NT articles or not.

Neat we get to see the prizes early! And also neat they have old plot prizes, retired items, or just hard to get items in there. Though, gotta say I'm not sure how I feel about them having Hidden Tower items in the shop. Speaking of which, Varia's Bomb serves as an interesting rival to Ghostkerbomb, both having their pros and cons. I like it, though still debating should I get one with my points or just buy it off someone.
white_rabbit1142, March 17, 2023 12:07 AM NST
Can you only hold 35 shards or is that the maximum for the entire event? 🤔 maybe this is a silly question. Also how long will it be on going?
apophis324, March 17, 2023 1:19 AM NST
@pikachu315111: Pffft, tough GMC scores. As if that ever will be a thing again. Maybe in 10 years or so they'll be in the initial stages of seeing the feasability of the GMC returning XD
I agree with your sentiments however. Just get rid of that day-of-release bologna. It only gives scalpers more to brag about and sell for outrageous prizes. The only place it makes sense to have such a thing is at the Advent Calendar (and even then...).

@white_rabbit1142: I'm pretty sure the event lasts one week, so you can find five new crystals each day for seven days. This means you'll get a max total of 350 points, so not enough to get everything in the prize shop.
warmum, March 17, 2023 2:54 AM NST
And this is why I quit playing neopets. So freaking pathetic they keep doing the same stuff. I come back, check out things for a few weeks. This was always my favorite site from my teenage years onward.
recklesse, March 17, 2023 6:21 AM NST
pikachu315111, I agree that in most cases (such as the examples you gave) having a special prize for doing stuff on 'day of release' is not helpful. It doesn't even encourage more participation (which I guess is the intended point of it).

In this case, where there is a limit on the number of shards you can collect anyway, I don't see the point of giving out 5 times the number of points for collecting them on the 'correct' day (especially when the first 'day' was only partial). I think it's a disproportionate penalty.
myriamele, March 17, 2023 11:02 AM NST
Okay, that was weird... I found 7 crystals today, so instead of only having 10/35, I have 12/35...
myriamele, March 17, 2023 11:05 AM NST
There has to be a glitch... I went back to Faerie City and found 2 more, so now I have 14/35...
myriamele, March 17, 2023 11:07 AM NST
Hm, I now have all 15... I think I saw something in the thread about allowing us to find all of the shards after all? (If so, please ignore me, I was so shocked )
contessa, March 18, 2023 12:40 AM NST
Is it just me, or was today and yesterday really, really easy to find the shards? I found all 5 right away when I went to the Healing Springs. I even double checked and today, day Four, I have 20 out of 35 shards! Yay!
invader_of_worlds, March 18, 2023 8:41 AM NST
well I am gald for the prize shop having a faerie paint brush I have a pet on a side will be fae. also the weapon is nice and i want that background as I missed it the first time round.
breezydreams, March 20, 2023 4:43 PM NST
The oddest thing happened today. I clicked the first shard (New Faerieland), got the pop-up box, but the shard still seemed to be there. I clicked again, no pup-up box, and the shard vanished. Clicked 3 more (1 in Faerie City), all normally. Refreshed both maps several times and searched, got nothing. Checked my count, and had all 5 registered. Looks like 2 shards were in the same place at the same angle, when the map was first loaded. What are the odds?
purplebin, March 21, 2023 10:36 AM NST
I got 6 shards today, after clicking on the last one and it didn't give the popup.
apophis324, March 22, 2023 12:38 AM NST
@breezydreams: Not as odd as you might think. My old Chromebook had trouble loading in the pages, getting the shards to come in first. Which meant they were all stacked on top of one another. Super easy searching ^ -^

And now it's over... That was.. fun?
maraquanfaerie, March 22, 2023 10:01 AM NST
I forgot the event yesterday due to Americans changing their clocks and now I can't find the last 5 shards
