  1. Bad news. My account was frozen last month. In the middle of daily dare and right after I'd decided to try out premium too. I have my side accounts. I can use one as a main account while I'm waiting for my ticket to be answered, right? I fear that my main account is lost forever though, and I'd put so much effort into it that I gave up for a month. Then they took money out of my bank account for premium on my frozen account. Should have sent a separate ticket for that beforehand I guess. Thankfully I was on the monthly plan, so it wasn't more than 8 dollars. To a college student that's a lot though. I think I want to start again. If my account is ever returned to me, can I transfer what I get on my new main account to it?
  2. Maybe this thread can help me. I can play most games, but anything requiring the shockwave plugin hasn't worked on my computer for years. Hannah and the Ice caves used to be my favorite game when I was younger. Thankfully, I got the avatar for the pirate caves before it was too late, because no more Hannah for me. Same goes for attack of the slorgs, which I did NOT get the avatar for. I've clicked the download links and followed the instructions many times on three different browsers and two different computers, but to no avail. I gave up a long time ago but if I thought there was a fix I'd try again. Anyone know what to do? I have Google Chrome, Firefox, and Explorer as my browsers. Firefox was downloaded specifically because I was told a long time ago that it would fix the problem. It didn't.
  3. Sorry for the long buildup to my question. If I'm wrong about what's in the buildup, please correct me. If I'm right, maybe someone will find it useful. So I've become really into battling in the 1 player battledome recently. I started out training my jubjub, Anarchy_3_3, specifically to get the meuka avatar sometime between last years faerie quest event and now. I got it eventually, and kept going. My jubjub has long since gotten me the ghost lupe and the black pteri avatars, and I hope to one day to have her able to beat the space faerie (I have her as a challenger already from one of the pieces of merchandise I asked my dad for years ago- before I even used the battledome). In the meantime, I discovered the usefulness of beating the other challengers within my range for the various prizes. There is something I don't understand though, and I can't find the answer anywhere. According to the source I'm using (Jellyneo's battlepedia) the amount of damage my own neopet can deal with an equipped item (assuming for the sake of simplicity that nothing is blocked by the opponent) is based on her attack stat and the number of attack icons that item deals. The amount of damage she can block with an item is based on her defense stat, the amount of icons of each type that item blocks, and what type of icons she was hit with. Anarchy_3_3 is level 63, has 138 hp, an attack of 81, and defense of 94 (Thank you to the latest faerie quest event for really adding to her training). Lets say she throws a shooting star muffin (15 icons, 5 each of fire, air, and dark). She has the potential to do 30 damage if the opponent blocks nothing or if she uses lens flare, since 81 attack means 2 damage per icon. For defense, lets say she uses the parchment cloak to defend from an opponent with her exact stats throwing the same muffin back at her. It blocks no fire icons, 5 air icons (yes, her intelligence is above 150), and about 2.6 dark icons. 94 defense means 2.5 damage per icon can be blocked. She gets 10 damage from the fire attack, the air attack is completely blocked, and she gets only 3.325 damage (not sure how it's rounded in actual battle) from the dark attack (2.67 icons multiplied by 2.5 blocked per icon), for a total of either 13 or 14 hp lost. First off, Am I right? Main question: do the challengers in the 1 player battledome have stats that behave in the same way? All I can find on different guides regarding the opponents themselves is the hp each has on each difficulty level and each one's abilities and items. It would be nice to know, for example, how much damage Viras Winged Dagger's 8 icons of darkness can do when fighting her at a medium difficulty before I decide what items I should use to go up against her. I could always purposefully take a hit without trying to block anything to satisfy my curiousity, but losing isn't fun and my jubjub doesn't have enough of a hp advantage over medium toughness Vira for that to not be a major risk. Can anyone help answer this?
  4. That warning came too late for me. Every time I play kass basher, I'm reminded of one of the worst bungles I've ever made during a neopets game. You know how there's a very rare chance that you can hit kass with the tree itself? Last December I got that, waited patiently for the wind to be right, hit Kass, held down space bar, and released it at the right time. Then, as he landed, I clicked to bounce him farther. One. Too. Many. Times. I have a farthest whack number that shows every gamein the bottom left of the screen. It reads 1129. I feel like the game is mocking me, as that score never got sent because of that one extra click but it probably won't go away unless I get another chance with the tree. I haven't seen it since. I'm so much better at the timing now, so I bet I could hit it it even farther if I got another shot. My official high score is 987 from within the past week. Imagine the exact same hit except with the tree instead of the bat. Anyone know the numbers of how small the chance is?
  5. Is it cheating to use my side account to find the link to the right shop? I already did, and copied and pasted the link to buy it with my main account. Now I'm a bit worried about whether or not that was allowed. Thank you so much for that link, Charelan- I'll use that from now on. Last years event was great. I got two trips to the rainbow fountain- the first was from the grey faerie, the second was from Naia herself. Thank goodness I got the second one- the kacheek I had active when I completed the quest for the grey faerie was not the pet I'd been saving up for the neopoints for a wraith paint brush for, and she only gave me access for my active pet. I painted him eventide in the hopes that the pretty color would ease my disappointment. It didn't, and a year later he is now a fire acara (and still a work in progress). I continued getting the quests each day, and soon I got another chance. I doubt I'll be that lucky again, but I can hope. I got a fortune cookie to increase the odds. So far this year, I've helped a light faerie and a fire faerie. The pet I'm focusing my training on is now 2 higher in level and 3 higher in strength. Useful.
  6. I'm an impatient person. I tried for a few days to attach a scoach that I'd bought a few years back. I eventually gave up and sold it again. Same thing happened last year with a wormoeba that I'd actually spent some time saving up for. I don't plan on trying again anytime soon.
  7. When I remember to do my dailies, I fish with all four. Because of this, my oldest neopet has the highest skill level and my youngest has the lowest. I had a several years long hiatus from neopets though, and when I'm busy I may either neglect my dailies for long stretches of time or only do Trudy's surprise. Because of that, my 9 and a half year old Aisha only has a fishing skill of 196. I've never gotten anything particularly valuable, but I got the avatar before I was purposefully collecting avatars, which was nice.
  8. I love sea slugs, so my maraquan snowbunny is perfect.
  9. Oh wow! I'd never noticed that about dress to impress before! Another piece to the puzzle, I guess. Thanks!
  10. I painted my jubjub woodland several years back mainly because I loved the way the dark blue eyes look against the green body. A few months after, I was shocked to go to my quick ref page and see that her eyes had lightened and her eyebrows had changed to green. I joined jellyneo forums specifically to ask why the change had occurred (They are boring and inactive compared to here). I think they thought I was making it up though, because when I went to take a screenshot my jubjub looked the same as before so I had no proof. Since then, she looks like the rainbow pool says she should look like most of the time, but sometimes I'll see the changed appearance at one of the pages where her picture is visible. I finally took some screenshots, so you won't think I'm crazy or lying. The first was taken at my quickref page. The second was her preview at the NC mall at the exact same time as the first. Any knowledge as to why this is? Like I said, it has confused me for over a year now.
  11. Probably it's due to the charity corner. I expect they will go down after it is over.
  12. That's awful. Oddly enough, I also dreamed about neopets last night. I dreamed that I accidentally sent a favorite neopet to a random stranger instead of my side account. I woke up before I found out whether they accepted it or not.
  13. My Dream pet was a wraith Aisha. Thanks to a fountain faerie quest during last years faerie quest event, I now have one. Three of my pets have looks I saved up for and dreamed of- my wraith Aisha, my Shadow Usul, and my woodland Jubjub. I cant decide what I want to do for the fourth, but for now he is good as a fire Acara.
  14. Anyone want a Christmas Uni Morphing potion? I know they are out of season, but I just got one in a random event and could use some neopoints after a recent spending spree. Problem is, I don't know what to ask for. JellyNeo doesn't have a current price (although they priced it at 200,000 NP last September), and no one with one at the trading post has a specific amount listed. Anyone want it, or have a suggestion for what to sell it for? Also, Anyone here into gourmet foods? I got a Land Lubber from the Golden Dubloon about a month ago, which I tried in vain to sell at the time. Someone else on the Trading Post is asking for 120,000 NP. I'm willing to sell it for less than that to someone on here. I'm going to put it up for trade now. If you want a discount, offer between 100,000 and 120,000 NP and let me know that you are from this board. I might not respond immediately to offers. I have a paper due tomorrow that I really should be working on.
  15. I wasn't paying attention, so I don't know what the event said. However, I ended up with a Christmas Uni Morphing Potion in my inventory that I definitely didn't buy, so I must have gotten one. Nice!
