Far off the beaten path in the Kingdom of Meridell, hidden away in the densest part of the Lightwater Forest, lies a secret glade that only a chosen few are able to find. This is the home of Illusen, a mysterious but kind-hearted Earth Faerie known for giving Neopians her unique handmade trinkets as thanks for bringing her a wide variety of items.

How to Play

You are able to ask Illusen for a quest at any time, so long as it has been at least twelve hours since you last completed a quest for her or Jhudora, her longtime rival. While Illusen will refuse to give any quests on Jhudora Day (February 4th), you will be awarded with an avatar if you complete a quest on Illusen Day (March 17th).

Unlike most faeries that give quests, Illusen is perfectly happy to let you use the Shop Wizard to fulfill her quests. She does, however, impose a strict time limit of sixteen minutes and forty seconds. If you are unable to bring Illusen the requested item within the time limit, you will fail the quest and be taken back to Level 1. You will also be removed from the Illusen's Glade high score table (see the Scoring section below).


Upon completing a quest you will reach the next level, which comes with an increase in the rarity of the items Illusen seeks. While the first several quests will usually be for common, inexpensive items, later levels will ask for unbuyable items, forcing you to find them through other avenues.

As long as you don't fail a quest, your next quest level will remain the same indefinitely. You may wait months or years between quests and barring a database issue or glitch, you can continue your quest level at any time. However, your score for the High Score Table will reset monthly; each quest will award a maximum of 2000 points regardless of the level. See Scoring section below for more details.

Sometimes, you may be unable to find an item in any user shop, trade, or auction. This is often because the item is so rare that there are currently none on the market. If you find yourself in this situation, you may want to consider creating a Trading Post lot or Neoboard post asking for the item in question. If you're in the high-level quests that always ask for items with a rarity of 99, it may be worthwhile to post on the Neoboards before even starting the quest in order to get the attention of resellers specializing in r99 items.

It's also possible that an item you're unable to find is a piece of no-trade Neohome 2.0 furniture. In these cases, the items can be found at the Neohomes Superstore.

Your one stop shop for those impossible-to-find items!

For completing quests, you will be rewarded with exclusive prizes at regular intervals. In the table below you will find these items, as well as the rarity of the items that will be requested at each level. To find out which specific items are within each rarity range, click on the numbers (i.e. 10 - 20) to view these rarities in our Item Database.

Like most things classified as games, Illusen's Glade has a high score table that runs on a monthly basis, with trophies awarded to those with the top scores. Points are earned by completing quests quickly, with a base score of 1000 points for turning in the item and up to 1000 bonus points. You start a quest with 16 minutes and 40 seconds (for a total of 1000 seconds) on the timer, and every second you take to finish the quest will cost you one bonus point.

Since scores in Illusen's Glade are cumulative, the majority of scores on the board will continually increase throughout the calendar month. If you want to try for a trophy, it's recommended that you start on the first day of the month at Level 1, and complete a quest every twelve hours. Bear in mind that should you fail a quest, you will be removed from the high score board. If you've reached a point at which you're uncertain whether you will be able to complete the next quest, you may want to remain at the current level and hope that those with scores higher than yours fail their own quests.

Quick Tips

  • Complete quests as quickly as possible to earn the maximum number of points.
  • If Illusen asks for a single-color Neohome item, try looking in the Neohomes Superstore.
  • Try to start quests during peak hours (around 4:00 p.m. NST), when a good number of users are online; this makes it more likely that you will be able to reach the owner of a Trading Post lot.
  • If you think you'll be unable to get a rare item in time, try creating a Trading Post lot or Neoboard post asking for the item in question.
