Ignoring the lame title; how risky is it nowadays to AB in those so-called high risk shops like Merrifoods, Kauvara's, Stamps, battle & defense magic and what not?

Has anyone been frequenting those areas in recent months? Have the neopets admins been less on-the-ball about policing these red-flag shops? I'm curious as to whether the old cautionary tales are still true or if security is more lax now that there are less players.

Sharing is caring!

Security (if you could call it that), seems to be much more 'lax these days. I've been regularly getting high ticket items in the 'red-flag' shops for a while now and haven't been frozen personally for AB-ing ever. So I would say things are as safe as you make them. Be patient, as always and don't try and buy things with stupid times and you should be fine :)

Lol, there's definitely no worry about that. I think my fastest time is around 2300+ms and highest on normal operations is 9000+ms.

 

Sucks to connect to Neopets on the Asian continent. Haha.

Really secure! When I use Amazon EC2 my buytimes are around 800ms sometimes and I have been safe for months, I'd say years! 

 

Last time I was frozen was ages ago for using multiple accounts.

I literally AB nearly every day and have for the past 6 months or so. 

 

If you don't put in stupid settings, you'll be just fine.

I won't act stupidly, or in reality I can't act stupidly due to server latency. Haha. I'll experiment on shell accounts and see how it goes. Thanks all!

Ya most of the time I'm just restock banned when I come back but it has happened many many times. 

 

Not advising that you do it but I really see ABing as low risk... or I've just got very lucky lol.

Hi All.

 

I have been here for a while but never posted as I was shy.

 

I am super new to this, and was wondering if there were any updated lists for Abrosia? I want to start AB'ing because I lazily want to hit my goals <3

 

TIA for any help :)

You really don't need a list for Abrosia, imo, unless you just want one. 

In case you haven't already seen it, there's an FAQ(though it's a little out of date) here: http://www.neocodex....sked-questions/

Ahh thank you so much <3 I will check it out. 

 

Do you have any other tips for a newbie like myself? I don't want to be one of the stupids who gets frozen for doing something silly :p

Don't run it for impossibly long times.

 

Don't put your times too low. 

 

Don't brag on the boards. 

 

That's just about all there is to it.

when you get restocked banned, do you move over to a shell or do you wait it out? I'm super torn on using sides again, I just came back from a 5-6 year break because I was frozen last time for multiple accounts. I'm sure I messed up a proxy somewhere etc but can't decide if I want to risk it now or play more 'straight'.

always safer to wait it out of course. I personally only go on one account for that purpose.

Use ValorSuite with a proxy from North America.

 

 

 

ABing is incredibly safe right now.

What happens when you use an NA proxy? Do the buy times go down?

Through ValorSuite yes. My servers are located near Neopets. My servers use the proxy you provide to contact Neopets from my server's location which leads to much faster buying times if you are not from North America.

 

Normally requests come from your machine then go to the proxy then to Neopets. My web application gives you the ability to go from my server to the proxy to Neopets.

Not risky at all. If you don't buy an item in .0001 seconds they don't care.

They used to care, but aside from inhumanly possible speeds it's not an issue.

they are better off designing new neocash item then freeze user, considering they have declining userbase?

The more I look at this title the more I get weirded out how risqué and risky can be said the exact same but also different when you pronounce risque correctly w/ the é and mean two completely different things but also kinda mean the same thing at the same time? English is a weird language man
