#1700026 Advice on battledome weapons

Posted by ceterisparibus on 27 November 2013 - 03:33 AM

Go to pirate academy to get your boost up to 80/80/80. It's super cheap although time-consuming.


I suggest that you go for 1 big item, followed by efficient cost-saving but good items.


Freezer - you have the ancient lupe wand. It's really cheap but breakable (about 1/8 chance). I strongly suggest this unless you really want something that will last forever like the h4000, but due to funds you might want to go there later.


Shield - with a relatively low defense, its not worth any big shields (mainly from HT). Go for cheap stuff like the altadorian swordbreaker (full physical), or the steam jug (full light and air), or the sophies magic hat (tons of nice icons blocked). Which leads us on to....


Bomb/constant - It's really a toss up in preference. Which do you want, a one-hit KO or a steady and constant attacks? Personally i'll go for constant which leads to stuff like the elemental sword series (you can afford it but its pricey) so i'll recommend the skarls hasty mace. It's super reliable (abeit a little wide ranged in damage) and only costs 7m! Then there's the smaller scope stuff like hanso charisma (really really good for the price and utility. I mean it blocks full dark and 10 icons omg) and cheap but still ok stuff like rainbow scroll.


Stealer - don't need that. But it got sorta buffed, so....purple sticky hand? You're not strong enough for the thieves cloak and it's glitched too.


Healer - Greater healing scroll hands down. Then you can move on to jar of brains later on.


So an overall set would look like this.


(Constant/block) Hanso charisma charm - 700k

(Stealer) Purple sticky hand - 15k

(Constant) - Skarls hasty mace - 7m

(Freezer) - ancient lupe wand - 15k (breakable)

(Healer) -Greater healing scroll - 100k

(Bomb) - Jhdoraus potion - 1.2m

(Shield) - Sophies magic hat - 100k

and you still have a ton of cash at hand for training! If you want you could always replace the potion with a g-bomb. Hope it helps!

#1661986 Net worth of neocodex - we feed the 1% of the forum population, where's t...

Posted by ceterisparibus on 26 April 2013 - 12:20 AM

Ok blame me for having too much time on my hand.




How would you feel if you can make cash out of the browser game we all love and hate, neopets? Well, in 2005 Viacom brought over neopets for a whopping 160 million bucks! That's more cash than any of us will see in our lifetimes through. So it got me wondering - how much exactly is the net worth of the other websites dedicated to neopets, compared to our little community of abers? Let's find out!


First up, we'll be relying on some key factors which determines the worth of a firm.



Traffic worth 

Daily work


Ways to monetize


The first 3 are pretty obvious to find out, but I'll say that the last 2, pagerank and ways are a little more complicated. Basically pagerank is the importance of a website in the whole list of websites in the whole wide world. It shows how high up the pecking order you are in the world. On the other hand, ways to monetize refers to the conversion of traffic worth into direct value, via the use of adverts such as CPM and PPC ads. See those irritating ads wherever you go into a webpage? That's the ad which pays the webby. This is just an oversimplified version of the definition so please take note.


For our comparisons, I'll be using Jellyneo, The Daily Neopets, SunnyNeo (the official certified ones) vs us, Neocodex. I can only find out the number of daily traffic (since that's the only data I can find!)


Traffic rank (according to Alexa)

1. Jellyneo - 47724 (171 link-in sites)

2. Daily neopets - 48728 (136 link-in sites)

3. SunnyNeo - 99071 (137 link-in sites)

4. Neocodex - 316756 (80 link-in sites)


So from the stats, we can see that Jellyneo is largely leading the pack, with a higher rank than the other 3. This is supported by the greater link-in sites which direct traffic into it as well. Surprising, despite having its own battlepedia website, it did not translate directly into more traffic for the Daily Neopets. Sadly, we are last in the pack by...4 times. Wow.

In the reviews, someone said something about 'viruses and penis enlargement ads' if you use neocodex. That might somehow explain our low traffic.


So after seeing this, I guess we're all wondering whether Neocodex is indeed last in the net worth of all of the sites. For this, I'll be using a few webbies given that results are largely varying with huge extremes. If we can spot a trend in all of this, we might be able to determine what makes each of this webbies tick.




According to http://www.websiteoutlook.com



According to http://www.cubestat.com/




Although Dailyneopets is leading jellyneo and Sunnyneo, the statistics are still more or less in line with each other. At the same time, it looks as through Neocodex is sadly in the back of things. 


However, take into consideration that the 2 calculating websites are only reliant on traffic instead of other aspects! As mentioned previously, although our traffic may be less, it is the content and monetizing means which affects the value as well. Neocodex relies on its monthly subscription of 5 bucks per advanced membership and ads content for Neocodex bucks, which is not considered into the calculation. All in all, this probably suggests that the overall net worth isn't as bad as it seems and although we may not be as high as the others, it may not be too far behind as well.


That wraps it up. I hope this will be an eyeopener to the worth of websites and beyond and remember, all of these statistics are meant for fun and not meant to antagonize any parties. Feel free to fire away!

Wondering if anyone knows... I want one oh so badly T___T but don't want to shell out the NP and am wondering how long I'm going to have to run AB to have even the slightest chance.


Also, how monitored is spooky pets? low, med, high?



Thank you in advanced! :3


Try using peanuts with a flap trap. Walnuts and blueberries work too


I have to warn you through that the smarter ones wouldn't fall for this
