This is the Guide to General Guides section! This little box will offer you a brief overview or description of what a certain category is about. Although the GTGG is designed for newer Neopians, it could serve quite a use for more experienced players as well.
Clicking on the ✖ symbols will take you to the category, clicking the word links will take you to that category's GTGG section.

An ad, short for ads, are those little (and often times big) banners or buttons that may appear on a Neopets page. They aren't illegally there since Neo allows their ads (they are paid ads), but they do lead to off neopets sites. Often times people just ignore them, but for some they can be really annoying. Ad blocking guides serves this purpose exactly but some may only work on certain browsers.
Neopets may have been created as a safe 'get away' haven for those who find realities too tiring, but through the advancement of technology (which may be good in another way), it is often times abused by no good neopians who sabotage another neopian's account to improve their own. Learn more about what to do and what not to do to stay safe on Neopets by reading through these guides.
Pet applications are completely allowed, as long as the user doesn't force you to make one. There are two kinds of applications: neomail (brief; mostly for not very rare/colored pets) and petpage (in depth; for more sought after paint brush colors/species). Applications can include stories, art, role playing info, and much more.
Avatars are those pictures that appear next to your posts at the boards. 'Avatar Hunting' as they call it, is something of a highly coveted goal. Though many avatars are easy to get, many others are quite hard. They require hard work, determination and hard earned neopoints. Avatars can be obtained through games & items, some are random and some clickable. ACers has their own board here
The Battledome is where different Neopians' pets come to fight either with other Neopian players or Neopets characters. Your wins will be displayed on your userlookup under collections entitled: One Player BD Wins. Neopians can battle either to get some of those elusive BD avatars, for the defenders of Neopia
, or if they just love to battle it out. And neopets has their own Battlepedia
Back in the year 2007, Neopets introduced us to customization which allowed us to dress up our pets. It is also the reason of having unconverted pets since Neopets had to change all the neopets drawings so one piece of clothing can fit all. Clothes can be bought through neopoints and neocash through the nc mall
, Neopian, or user shops.
Have you ever come across a word that you didn't understand perhaps in the neoboards? Maybe on a petpage? It's not uncommon; the majority has their own especially on the internet. It's called their lingo, some that you may not understand could only be a neopets lingo and pronounciations
, but some also are the norms in other internet sites.
Ahhhhh, Neopia, the virtual world we live in with many, many places to visit. And if you're a weary traveler that is just getting the hang of how things work around at a particular place, then these Neopian places guides are right for you. Get the feel of these places with the guides that will help you learn the aspects and various other things
of a certain land.
The Kadoatery can be found here
at the Neopian Plaza. It is where kadoatie owners leave their kadoaties when they go away for vacation therefore leaving it up to us to feed them. You can win trophies and an avatar by feeding kads, but kad feeding is not a very easy feat. You have one chance to refresh, because kadoaties are fed fast. Kad Feeding time lists can be found at the games chat
There are maps in Neopia, that when put together can lead you to a certain prize or unlock a certain site feature. Like the secret pet
laboratory maps which when activated allows you to zap your pet/petpet once a day for a color/specie change. There are other maps as well like the treasure map, spooky map, underwater map, space map, and many more. You can activate your maps when you have all the pieces by going here
There are millions of items in Neopia. That's a great thing about Neo, they make it seem so much like real life. ;D Neopian items have certain values, and others have useful effects when used. Curious about what all those shrooms, neggs, potions, weapons, books, berries, etc do? Well, these guides are here especially for that purpose.
Restocking is buying something from the Neopian Shops
(non user owned shops) and re-selling them for a profit. It isn't quite as simple as it sounds though, because everyone likes profit, right? And when everyone restocks, things go by very fast. Visit the pages listed to learn more about restocking.
The Stock Market
is a long term investment of your neopoints. Basically, you buy
a share from a certain company and you wait it out until the neopoints you've invested doubles, triples, etc.! Stocks will eventually go up even though it may not seem like it. A core rule of using the SM is never to sell your shares for a loss, it'll go up in time.
Sniping & Shopkeeping
Sniping is done in way of the shop wizard
. Frankly speaking, you choose an item to begin searching for and refresh until you find the item with a low price as compared to the others. When you get it, sell it for a profit! Visit the pages for better understanding of sniping and shop keeping.
The neoboards can be considered Neopets' forum, where anyone (if your account is above the 13 age mark) can post. Of course, there are various boards where you can post/start a certain conversation. So be sure to keep that in mind to avoid the 'grumpy ones':D There's a certain thing you need to know for each board, especially the big ones (avatar, pound, and help chat), the guides provided will explain what and how these boards work.
The Neopian Times
is Neopets' very own newspaper. Neopians are free to submit their own guides, articles, stories, and comics for other Neopians to see. Not all entries get accepted though. It could be due to too many submissions, too many grammatical errors; the staff didn't get your joke (for comics) and more. These guides are here to explain exactly how The NT works.
Stamp, seashell, and charm collections appear in your Album
under collections. There are also avatars that could be obtained through completing a certain set of stamps. This guide
, as well as all the pages listed, will tell you from the basics to advanced all you need to know.
The Almost Abandoned Attic
is located at the bottom left house of Neovia
. It is similar to the Igloo Garage Sale since it restocks items with a rarity of 80-99 at a cheap price. The attic restocks 53 seconds after the minute or every seven minutes. The attic can only be accessed by users with a 3 year+ old account.
The Altador or Darkest Faerie Plot is the only plot left open that you can do. To start the plot go and click on the yurble janitor at the top right corner at the Hall of Heroes
. The rest of the steps can be found on Arrazetti's Guide
. You better hurry up and finish it in case it closes soon! Of course there is still no news of it closing, but better safe than sorry.
The Neopian Art Gallery
is located at the Neopian Art Center
at Neopia Central. The gallery houses many Neopians' artworks which can be of their neopets or other scenes. If your picture is published, you'll win 10,000 neopoints, a rare item, and a trophy! A great guide on the art gallery can be found here
as well as the guides listed along your right.
The Beauty Contest
, also known as the BC, is a competition between Neopians' pets who makes an artwork of their pet and advertises them in hopes of gathering the most votes from other Neopians. Anyone can enter, the hard part is advertising. Some great guides to help you get started can be found here
, and here
. Beauty contest scores and results can be found here
The Caption Competition
is a weekly Neopets site contest where you can submit and think of the wittiest, best, and funniest caption for a given picture provided. TNT selects the best and awards them with 5k-10k neopoints, a rare item, and a trophy (whether they win or not). You can vote for the current captions here
, and a more in depth guide can be found here
The Daily Dare
is a Neopian site event held for the whole month of Running (March) where you can choose to beat AAA, Abigail, or Lulu's game scores in a certain game. AAA
has the highest score to beat but his prizes are always better, Abigail
has the lowest scores, and Lulu
is the one in between but you'd have to purchase a game ticket with neocash to choose her. Lulu's prizes are NC items held at the NC Challenge Main Page
Diseases and Cures
Sometimes your pets gets ill from random events, you can heal them through the healing springs
or through cures. There are three types of cures: the Pharmacy Cure at Neopia Central
, Emergency Supplies at Sakhmet
, and the Remarkable Restoratives at Shenkuu
are achieved through random events. A faerie will ask you for an item and if you choose to find the item and give it to them they will reward your active pet. Faeries give different kinds of rewards and some faeries have fixed ones: Jhudora
A guild is a kind of group you have for Neopets. You can look for guilds through guild directories
, guild boards
, or the guild headquarters
. While some guilds stay open for a long time, some sadly, close immediately. Look through these listed links for owning a guild!
There are token neggs and special neggs. Token neggs are nothing but food but they can be exchanged for tokens at the Neopian Neggery
which in return (when you have collected enough tokens) can be exchanged for special neggs. Special neggs, when fed to neopets, may increase your pets' battle stats, it may change your pets' mood, give you random items, it may heal your pet or give it a disease, some can even change your pets' specie. To learn more about the effects of neggs, proceed to the pages listed.
A Neohome is the virtual houses of Neopets. Your Neopets can't actually go inside and stay in that house, it is more likely a display. There are 2 different kinds of Neohomes now: the classic neohome
and the neohome version 2
. Classic neohomes costs neopoints to build while the latter does not. V2 also gives you a 3D feel as compared to the classic which is 2D only. You can also place neocash items in a neohome V2.
Pet trading is allowed by TNT but there are still rules to follow for safe trading. Remember that only 1 neopet can be traded for 1 and neopets are not to be traded with neopoints/neocash/items. Trades can be commenced through transfers
Having premium gives Neopians a more fruitful time when roaming around the Neopets site community. It eliminates all those ads you see around the site plus some added benefits! Premium is paid with real money (through credit cards, paypal, etc.) and you would need an existing premium user to invite you. Better yet, visit these pages listed for a better understanding of premium.
Like the title suggest, role playing involves a story and characters wherein someone plays a role. Most role playing takes place at RPers very own board
, maybe at a petpage or their own guilds. Be sure to take a gander around those boards to get used to the 'feel' of things and visit the pages listed to learn the lingo and role playing ways!
