Rubbish Dump Day, Saturday, March 4th!
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on March 4, 2023, 12:00 am NST

Welcome to the 1st Saturday of the month: Rubbish Dump Day!

In April 2022, TNT updated the Rubbish Dump to increase the drop rate of "rubbish" eligible for the avatar. (And we've even seen some Hidden Tower items pop up that weren't previously confirmed as prizes!)

The Rubbish Dump is special in that items dropped there appear after a Neopian refreshes the dump. (In other words, refreshing the page gives you the chance to "donate" some rubbish to the queue.) The more people visiting and refreshing, the more rubbish dropped, and the more opportunities there are for avatar items to appear!

Starting now, and continuing all day, here's how you can gather and participate:

If you DON'T have the avatar...
  • Visit the Rubbish Dump in Meridell and refresh to generate rubbish!
  • Claim up to 8 pieces of rubbish to clear the way for more items to appear. (And make sure not to claim anything from the Money Tree or Second-Hand Shoppe... it's 10 items max from all 3 locations combined!)
  • To be safe from accidental clicks, save your last 2 rubbish claims for when an avatar item pops up. (You can claim up to 10 items from the Rubbish Dump per day.)
  • Review our guide to familiarize yourself with which items are eligible for the avatar.

If you DO have the avatar...
  • Visit the Rubbish Dump in Meridell and refresh to help generate rubbish! Even if you have the avatar, refreshing helps generate more "donations" that will show up later. (And that means more opportunities for avatar items to pop up!)
  • Claim up to 10 pieces of rubbish to help clear the way for avatar-eligible items to appear.
  • Be kind and leave the cheaper avatar-eligible items (like the Fading Bottled Faeries) for those who need the avatar! We won't mind, however, if you try sniping a Dung Catapult.

The more the merrier, so share this post with your Neofriends and guildmates!

As you participate, let us know in the comments what junk—or treasures—you've seen or picked up! And let us know if you get the avatar so we can celebrate with you.

Can't get enough rubbish? Mark your calendars and join us on the first Saturday of next month—April 1st—for our next Rubbish Dump Day!

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.
