The Battledome is a place where pets fight challengers or other pets. To increase the effectiveness of your battledome weapons, you must train your stats in order to get a higher boost. This simple guide is made to help you train your pet as fast as possible.
There are many ways to increase you pet's stats, but your main objective is to train as frequently as possible at training schools. There are three training schools available in Neopia:
Swashbuckling Academy: Located at Krawk Island and trains pet from level 1 to 40. It takes dubloons for payment, making this the cheapest way to train your pet, since the price of a single dubloon is 2500 - 9000NP at the shop wizard. The only downside with this school is the time it takes for your pet to finish its training: from 4 hours (for level 1 to 10) up to 10 hours (for level 31 - 40).
The Mystery Island Training School: Obviously located at Mystery Island and trains pets from level 1 to 250. You need codestones to pay for this training. Much faster than the Swashbuckling Academy (if you consider the same level) but the prices for the training are unstable since the codestones range from 3500 to 10000 NP, with the payment increasing by one codestone every course type.
Secret Ninja Training School: Hidden in Mystery Island, this school only trains pets that are over level 250. It uses the red codestones, which are obtained from the Techo Mountain or sometimes also available in the Shop Wizard and Trading Post. There is no limit to how high you can train your pet, and there is also a shop here which sells wonderful items such as Thick Smoke Bomb and Lucky Robots Foot. If you begin a course but you can't obtain the required codestone, you can cancel that course but you must wait for 24 hours before entering to a course again.
Now let's move to the main part, the secrets on training your pet as fast a possible. Follow these easy steps:
|Course Type||Level||Strength||Defense||Hit Points|
First, all you have to do is train all your stats together up to 40 then train your Hit Points to 60 (this will complete the first row training). From here on, to continue to the next row, train your Level to half your Hit Points then train both your Strength and Defense until they are equal to you Hit Points then train them all equally up to the next suggested number.
UPDATE: I retested this table and found out that you can train your endurance 3 points more than the 3x level mark (i.e., even if your HP is already at 62 with only 20 level, you can still choose to train endurance). That means you can train your HP up to 63 for Grasshopper and 123 for Basic level.
NOTE: I've adjusted the Level to give room for Faerie and Kitchen Quests that might come your way. Using this guide, training your Hit Points will be much faster and cheaper than training it together with Strength and Defense.
|With the relatively low price of red codestones and the shorter length of training sessions at the Secret Ninja Training School, some people are opting to train their pet up to level 250 as quickly as possible in order to take advantage of the low prices. This is a personal choice based on the investment to get to level 250, the current price of red codestones, and the prediction of a future low price of red codestones. You may decide that this is the right choice for you.|
These are the other ways to increase your pet's stats. I highly recommend to do at least one or two of these to make your trainings quicker:
Coltzan's Shrine - May increase your stats. Also gives desert food, neopoints, two dubloon coins and minor BD equipments. But if you are really lucky you can win either a Desert Paint Brush, a Two Hundred Dubloon coin, a rare/powerful BD equipment, or ONE MILLION NEOPOINTS! For a more detailed research about this read Sleeky151515's petpage.
Turmaculus - This gigantic petpet is only awake for only 1 hour every day. If you are brave enough and lucky enough, Turmy will increase your strength by one. For more estimated waking times, visit Brownhownd's petpage.
Count Von Roo's Deadly Dice - Available only during 12am - 1am NST. This may increase or decrease your pet's level. You roll the dice and if you got higher than Von Roo you will get a +1 in your level. Get a lower number and you will get -1 in your level. In case of a tie, you can roll again but the stakes are doubled.
Kitchen Quest - There is roughly 33% chance of getting a stat increase by completing one of these quests. Stat increases are randomly given to one of your pets. This is a good way to train when there is an ongoing plot since dubloons and codestones prices tend to inflate. You can do a maximum of 10 quests per day. Just remember that there is no penalty for not completing a quest so choose your quests wisely. I suggest only do a quest that is worth 5000 NP and below.
The Secret Laboratory - Provides random increases/decreases in your pet's stats. It can even change your pet's species, color or gender. NOTE: According to the 375th Editorial, the Lab ray doesn't reduce Hit Points.
Wheel of Extravagance may increase a random stat of your pet by 5 or 10 points. The Wheel costs 100K to spin, so it recommended more for high-statted pets.
Training your pet is very hard work. But with patience and perseverance, even a young pet can be as strong as any other. So, are you ready for the battledome? :D
