Frequently Asked Questions
League 54 is the most popular 2-Player league in the Battledome today! It was designed to be easy to train for and inexpensive while allowing fun battles of a reasonable length. If you're tired of grinding AI opponents into dust and want something more out of the Battledome, then L54 might just be for you!
One of the best things about L54 is that it's not very expensive compared to some other 2P battling leagues. Realistically, you could build a good L54 set for less than 2 or 3 million neopoints... and most of that is just the price of Purple Scorchstone (since it's the best healer in the league by far). You certainly could spend a lot more on weapons if you want to (and indeed some do), but it's not necessary by any means, especially when most of the essentials can be bought off the Shop Wizard!
You can start out with something like a Greater Healing Scroll or a Rejuvenating Jar of Brains, but Purple Scorchstone's overhealing ability cements its position as the best healer in the league. The overheal is key; it basically allows your pet to temporarily go above 54 HP, so your pet will be able to heal much more on average.
