i wonder how it was figured out? those clues didn't help haha

 

This clue in this week's editorial was pretty good:

 

 

Hey, TNT! *hands cookie* So, I was reading
The Lord of the Rings
and I found that one chapter is named "Flotsam and Jetsam"... curious. I then realized that "Ring of the Lost" (RotL) has the same letters as "Lord of the Rings" (LotR). Therefore I was wondering, as it seems you guys like reading... will I be able to find some hint about the Wishing Well avatar in a book, or am I just overthinking? ~blackie1407

You're overthinking. No one on The Neopets Team can read. In fact, we're not even sure how we're typi

es.

 

It gave us the digits (albeit out of order) needed for the correct donation amount :P

Whoo-hoo! New avatar! I was starting to think nobody would ever figure that out! & the old hint was right, it did have something to do with the number "7", being the within the first 7 wishes of the day and having a 7 in the amount! Cool!

i still think i u click the button it would just give u the avatar and not take your nps but its their tricky way of getting nps i guess haha

 

It's a way of decreasing the total number of neopoints in the economy. They're called "sinks." Other examples off the top of my head are Save the Wheels Event, basically all neopet shops (not user owned), and the Lever of Doom.

 

It's a way to counterbalance the neopoints earned in games and whatnot. Neopoints that go into sinks are destroyed. And the less NPs there are, the more each NP is worth (i.e. inflation and deflation).

 

So... that's the reason for taking our neopoints xD

Don't forget the wheel of extravagance - that's a sink and a deflation machine...

 

Oh man. It most certainly is... I know I've "sunk" enough NPs in that thing. x_x

(And yet to get the avatar xD)

yay yay yay yay yay yay YAY!!!

 

although thats a fair bit of nps 0.o

 

i wonder if there was a TNT betting pool on how long it would take us to figure it out? (and if so.. who won?)

Yay -- I agree with everyone that I can't believe that it was so long for a relatively simple solution... Now theres only several more "random" avatars to work on. including the dreaded wheel of extravagance.... ick

 

Oh and not to forget the awesomely sinking rich, richer, and richest avvies!

Lol, lucky me, I actually got that one my second day of trying the Wheel of Extravagance :P though I became addicted and went from 6 mil to 2mil :P thankfully I randomly did another spin a few weeks ago and got a Woodland Paint Brush that shot my 3mil(I was working my nps back up with games) to 7 Mil.

I still need the richest avie T_T

So excited! I got it but I know I didn't try a lot for it anyway! So I'm glad there's finally a solution. Now, if there were a certain amount for lever of doom that would be cool. :P

what i have learned was its normally in the range of spending 15-40k. i got it in the birthday cause you are more likely to get it and i only spent 17k

Thanks for posting how the solution was found, Alice.

 

I tried several methods myself, but I was leaning towards random NP at the Wishing Well and a specific phrase to enter in order to trigger it.

 

Example: I wish for the hidden avatar.
