HerdyOngoing Battledome Glitch
Posted by Herdy on December 26, 2017, 12:59 pm NST
You may have noticed yesterday a glitch has spread across the Battledome effecting prizes - this has continued on to today.

While prizes and Neopoints are displayed as being awarded after a battle, they are not actually added to your account - this also means it is currently possible to 'win' more than 15 daily prizes (though you don't actually get any). This glitch is not effecting battledome records, so you can still gain battledome points and complete the battledome related achievements of the plot.



Note: We have reports of this glitch not affecting the special Coffer drops from the Wraiths, and the drops of Wraith Fangs for those who managed to unlock the new challenger before the steps were removed.
HerdyNew Plot Steps (Glitched)
Posted by Herdy on December 24, 2017, 5:10 am NST
For a few hours this morning, new plot steps were live - however they were likely glitched to some degree and were removed. It is unclear when they will be made live again.

The steps were another round of the Murmurs, involving another attempt at the Faeries Chest, a new battledome challenger dropping Wraith Fangs, and 4 new potions to make. No new locations to use the potions at were made live, nor were any achievements added.



For the time being we would advise against investing in the new weapon from the Faeries Chest - Winged Palm Blade, since all other weapons from the Chest have been no trade and it is likely a glitch that this one is not.

Equally, the new Wraith challenger only appears to be dropping Wraith Fangs if you are not at your 15 item limit for the battledome already (similar to the coffers), so you may want to hold off on doing your daily battles just in case the steps return later on.

It looks like there is something new to do in the Wraith Resurgence plot!


The "Wild Woods" have opened up, which you can access by clicking on the bridge to the right of Kaia.

It appears that the activity is similar to the Faerie Caverns, where you select between heading left or right at three forks in the road. If you are successful, you'll find a cloaked figure running away. If not, then you'll be locked out and need to wait 2 hours before being able to go back in.

Once you have found the figure running away, you appear to be done for the step currently. It is unknown if this will become a daily activity or something similar. As of day 2 of the woods being released, you cannot re-enter if you already came across the cloaked figure. There are currently no achievements to unlock for this part of the plot.

Elsewhere, the two existing Wraith opponents have begun dropping Mysterious Cyan Coffers:



These are no-trade items that serve as an additional NC element to the plot (similar to the casks from the War for the Obelisk). Using Golden Keys from the Mall will allow you to unlock them. Currently you can get 4 Cyan Coffers, enough to unlock the 4 available NC items. It appears there will be additional coffers released in the future.

Note: Coffers are optional and opening them will not count towards plot completion. They are only awarded alongside of your normal daily 15 item drop maximum when battling. (In other words, if you already received your 15 items today battling other challengers, you will need to wait to receive your coffers tomorrow by battling the wraiths first.)
HerdyPlot BD Challenger Glitch

UPDATE: Both challengers are now back in the Battledome.

You may have noticed that both the Snapjaw Wraith and Deathball Wraith have disappeared from the Battledome today. This appears to be a glitch relating to today (10th) being the original date the plot was due to end. Scrappy has since confirmed on the neoboards that the end date of the plot has been pushed back, so there will be additional plot updates at some point and it is likely that both Wraiths will return.



If you can't wait for that (it will likely be fixed soon in the new week), remember that all three Wraith ingredients are still available on the Shop Wizard - you only need to actually fight Wraiths for the specific BD achievements.
HerdyPlot BD Challenger Updates

Today you may have noticed a change when fighting the Wraiths in the battledome. New defeated images have been added which show the Snapjaw Wraith reverting to a Jetsam and the Deathball Wraith becoming a Meerca.

This builds on the dialogue since the plot began where characters have mentioned the Wraiths being possessed Neopets.

As an additional note, since the new steps were released last week, a cap has been introduced to the number of wraith items you can farm - this appears to be 35. This is retroactive, so if you already had more Ectoplasm from the Snapjaw Wraith, you will already be capped. We advise for the time being not making 'spare' versions of the potions we already used, in case the ingredients are needed later on.
