Silvak's Battledome Guide

Silvak's Battledome Guide is intended to be a tool to help our members find useful battledome information. We don't have time to update every detail NeoPets adds or changes regarding the battledome, so we rely on those who have invested time and effort to keeping up with those details. We appreciate their work very much!

Below, I have listed the 1-Player challengers currently available in order by their difficulty. Further down the page, I have also listed the pet species strengths and weaknesses. In addition, I have made a list of the faerie abilities that I think are the most useful. I have also added info on strength boosts. However, the most useful part of this guide is the Battledome Databank of Neopian Times articles I have collected and organized. Go there to learn how to battle well.

Use the links to the left to learn how to fight, where to find 1-Player challengers, and what the different weapons do. I highly recommend the PPT In-Depth Battlepedia for all battledomers. The excellent staff running this fan site have info on Neggs, Faerie Abilities, how to calculate damage, and much more.

Useful Faerie Abilities
Visit PPT In-Depth Battlepedia for details on each ability.

  • Burrow (Earth Faerie) If used on strong, this will block almost every type of icon.
  • Sink (Dark Faerie) If used on strong, this will block almost every type of icon.
  • Drain Life (Dark Faerie) A good healing option against opponents with 100 or more hit points. Use it on weak.
  • Quench (Water Faerie) If used on weak, it can block all fire.
  • Boil (Fire Faerie) If used on weak, it can block all water.
  • Water Breathing (Water Faerie) If used on weak, it can block all water.

  • Diamond Dust (Air Faerie) Use on weak for a chance to freeze.
  • Magic Berries (Earth Faerie) Another great opportunity to heal. Use on weak for best effect.

Strength/Defense Boosts

The effects of your pet's strength/defense do not increase gradually. They increase in stages. Large plateaus exist that keep pets with widely different strengths/defenses on the same level. As you reach a strength boost, the amount of damage your pet does per icon increases. At the same time when you reach a defense boost, the amount of damage your pet defends per icon also increases. The following chart shows the current strength/defense boosts that I know about, and it is based on info given me by my friend sirhatter.

Pet Strength/DefenseDamage Done/Defended Per Icon
1 to 70.5
8 to 120.75
13 to 191.0
20 to 341.25
35 to 541.5
55 to 842.0
85 to 1242.5
125 to 1993.0
200 to 2494.5
250 to 2995.5
300 to 3496.5
350 to 3997.5
400 to 4498.5
450 to 4999.5
500 to 54911.0
550 to 59912.0
600 to 64913.0
650 to 69914.0
700 or more15.0

Alas, damage calculation is not as simple as multiplying icons times the damage per icon. First, some weapons don't do the exact amount of attack icons they show, and most defensive weapons defend a standard amount of icons that determines the true icons used to calculate the amount of damage defended. These calculations are complex and could lead to rounding errors. You can read my article on IDB to learn more.

Second, the attack stance of both the attacker and defender modify the damage done in an attack. You must ignore the icons generated by the attack stances mentioned in this chart. The following chart shows the base effects of each stance (also courtesy of sirhatter). After you've used the above chart to figure your total damage per icon, you can mulitply that damage by the appropriate percentage in the following chart:

Defender's Stance
Attacker's StanceBerserk AttackFierce AttackJump and AttackNormal AttackCautious AttackDefendImproved Defend
Berserk Attack225%210%195%180%150%120%105%
Fierce Attack210%196%182%168%140%112%98%
Jump and Attack195%182%169%156%130%104%91%

Cautious Attack150%140%130%120%100%80%70%
Improved Defend105%98%91%84%70%56%49%

If you think I should add more about this or I have something wrong, neomail me. You can also play with the IDB Damage Calculator to estimate your damage.
