Abrosia works :)

Though I realised that adblock + manual refreshes are about 2.6s, whereas abrosia is 8.0-10.0 sec.

I'ld like to manually restock in magic, but doubt I'm going to successfully buy anything. xD Just hope neopets know I'm legit there!


For refresh rates, not buy times. 2.6 as a refresh rate is crazy. You'll get insta RS banned.

Magic spells trouble, even if legit. If you want to go legit, go for stamps. Still carries some risk, but it's not as bad as Magic and you'll be able to get better stuff (people are jerks and take all the good RS in magic with impossible AB times).

I personally think that the random shop buying doesn't bring that much profit. I like the occasional 40k+ np profit, but its pretty rare. What mostly occurs is that i leave it on for an hour or so, and i come back to a blank screen or a list of items that i have missed

As a non advanced member, I find it easier to just use my own lists. The restrictions imposed are very limiting when it comes to getting items...and high-end shops like Stamp and Magic are to forget - first, there are faster people than you, and then there's the sole fact that it's pretty darn risky if you lower your buy times with Advanced Membership. If you don't, then you won't get the good items.

I prefer to be under the radar but still get good profit with the chance of actually /getting/ at least an item per restock, and there are shops for that.

You can chose the shop (one shop only) if you make up your own lists. Under the program settings it should be pretty clear how you can do it. Do the research yourself in the shop you want to RS in, make a list in notepad, save as a .txt, and upload it along with the shop number.

Also, because yo'ure a non-advanced member, you can't choose multiple specific shops to AB at.
Its either all the shops, or you choose just one shop to AB at.

500 posts seems such a mile away at this point.

Great guide though, :) Will be using when I'm advanced

it happens to everyone. You cant buy EVERYTHING. If you were buying everything, you would be iced pretty quickly.

Also depends on the time of day and how many rows are in the shop at the given time... Late night, shops tend to restock less, there are less players online willing to buy the crappy negative profit store items = store has 4 full rows of items (or close to it) and can't restock until some items are sold. Whereas during more busy times of day, stores have less rows- but it's harder to grab an item against more people... Posted Image


Yes. I was on Neopets at 2 AM EST in the money tree and I was practically Ninjaing every single donated item. Made a good 50k neopoints in 10 mins, there was not much competition.

so i was bored and wanted to see an update so i did it myself with some shops. i left out a few b/c i started to get tired. lol

let me know what to do with this data....do you think something like categorizing shops that have like lots of low profit items so are "steady stream of profit" vs places like magic, where there are mostly >100k profit items

 

"total" items in my data = any item with profit > 0, so it doesn't include hundreds if not thousand or so items that are completely deemed unprofitable by the database

 

in regards to these:

Forthcoming info:
1) Frequency of items >5k profit appear in the shop per duration of time
2) Frequency of successful buys of those items
3) Approx. profit margin
4) Profit margin compared to letting Abrosia run on its own.

 

could we work with neotracker to estimate frequency? e.g. run 2 4 ab'er in 1-food and compile data for a month via neotracker for both buy and sale? not sure how to compare abrosia vs manual since manual would depend on the type of shop and the flow of profit from that shop (slow steady vs occasional spikes)

 

edit: i also included the raw data excel i used

Change up your times. I've RSed there before and I've made around 10-20 mil worth in a month

Food don't seem like a good place to restock for now.

Where would you guys recommend to restock for a ETS >10k profit.

Maybe it's different with ABing, but I totally make the most "legit" NP by sitting in one shop and refreshing every second. Made my first 10mil from magic.
