Dome Decennial: Last Sign Up Day

Today is the final day to sign up for Jellyneo's Dome Decennial event in the Battledome! The first challenge will begin tomorrow and will be posted over on the Battlepedia's homepage.


This event will have something for every battler, from the newborn pet all the way to the hardened veterans at the top of our Top Pets List. Rather than a traditional 2P league format tournament, this will primarily be a test of your 1P might—or your valiant efforts!

Craving the social aspect of a good old-fashioned 2P battle? You're in luck: in the spirit of spreading camaraderie around the Battledome, bonus points will be awarded to those who spar with their fellow Neopians, be it in a league format or not.

Participants will be able to win a cool new trophy for their jnAccount Trophy Cabinet. Are you tough enough to take down the Fearsome Five and earn the shiniest trophy of them all?


Sounds like fun, right? Signups are open until tonight (November 9th) at 9:00 PM NST.




Want to verify your registration? Then check out our list of participating jnAccounts. We're updating with new entries from the sign up form throughout the day, so if you just signed up today, check back in an hour or so!

Happy Battledome Day!

On this day, 10 years ago, the Old Battledome officially closed its doors to make way for a revamped Battledome. A week later, a closed beta for the New Battledome was opened up to small groups of Neopians to start trying it out.

To celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the Old Battledome shutting down, we're saying: Happy Battledome Day! We have some fun updates around Jellyneo for you.

Defenders of Neopia, Series 2: Remastered
Continuing onward in our quest to preserve old Neopets storylines, we are excited to announce not a plot, but a series of comics centered around the Defenders of Neopia!

When Series 2 debuted in 2006, each new mission was accompanied by a short Flash comic depicting the situation at hand. Whether it was Mr. Chuckles taking Judge Hog captive, or Lady Frostbite assembling a giant snow cone machine... you can relive those stories below! (Or see them for the first time if you never had the chance to complete prior missions!)



You can find Defenders of Neopia, Series 2 at the bottom of our Remastered Plots section. (And yes, sadly, Defenders of Neopia is still defunct. We can only imagine how Judge Hog is enjoying a 10 year long vacation.)

Weapon Recommendations
Next up, we have a new article in our Battlepedia: Weapon Recommendations. (For 1-Player battles!)

After reading our Beginners' Guide to Training to beef up your Neopet's stats, and then reading our Beginners' Guide to Battling to learn how battle... you're probably left wondering which weapons to actually use! That's where Weapon Recommendations comes in.


The guide is sorted into four different tiers: Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, and Elite. The tiers correspond to different strengths of Neopets and budgets for how much you're willing to spend. Even putting a set together in the Beginner tier should get you ready to start taking down 1-Player challengers in the Dome, perfect for participating in the biweekly Battleground of the Obelisk.


Battledome Event
Finally, I'm pleased to announce that Battlepedia will be running a unique Battledome Event, unlike any other we've run before (or will ever run again): In-Depth Battlepedia's Dome Decennial!

This event will have something for every battler, from the newborn pet all the way to the hardened veterans at the top of our Top Pets List. Rather than a traditional 2P league format tournament, this will primarily be a test of your 1P might—or your valiant efforts!

Craving the social aspect of a good old-fashioned 2P battle? You're in luck: in the spirit of spreading camaraderie around the Battledome, bonus points will be awarded to those who spar with their fellow Neopians, be it in a league format or not.

Participants will be able to win a cool new trophy for their jnAccount Trophy Cabinet. Are you tough enough to take down the Fearsome Five and earn the shiniest trophy of them all?


Sounds like fun, right? Signups are open from now until November 9th—the day that the closed beta Battledome was opened to everyone.


And that wraps up our Battledome Day updates!
A Truly Shocking New Weapon!
Posted by macosten on July 15, 2022, 9:30 am NST
It's still hard to believe that this item is even real, but they really did it: they released a freezer that gives even the legendary Moehog Skull a run for its money (and in 1P, it probably wins). And while it's "only" 3500 Altador Cup prize shop points, it's so powerful that it's the reason this year's Altador Cup prizes are selling for such high prices. Without further ado, I introduce to you the birth of a new legend, Thunder Sticks:


Yeah. It's good. This is, by far, the strongest Altador Cup prize weapon of all time. A 16-icon 100% freezer with a 100% physical block feels like it'd be more at home in the Hidden Tower or the Smuggler's Cove than as an Altador Cup prize. It's so strong that some have clamored for a nerf! Not bad for a pair of glow sticks, but can most glow sticks summon a literal thunder storm?

If you happen to have enough prize shop points and want to start calling down the thunder, storm on over to the Altador Cup Prize Shop - or fly over to Jellyneo's Altador Cup XVII coverage to read up on what went down in this year's Altador Cup.
TNT marks the best time of the year with a new weapon!
Posted by SirCabbage on April 12, 2022, 1:11 pm NST
Last year the Festival of Neggs introduced Neopia to the powerful Void Blade- a weapon which ended up being both highly sought after and expensive. So it is good then that this year also has a brand new Battledome weapon introduced during Neopia's grandest hunt.


Introducing the Water Whip! By far the most powerful whip item on the website; delivering a chunk of damage combined with a 50% fire reflect. While it likely won't be considered as powerful as the void blade from last year, it is good to see TNT experimenting with some mechanics that they haven't touched as often.

Pick up your Water Whip (and other great prizes like books, a stamp or some fabulous swimming aids) at the Festival of Neggs today. Check out our guide to help you find yourself a new Water Whip today!
