I battle almost exclusively in the Rattling Cauldron; you can collect up to fifteen items per day and a set number of NP but you can keep battling if you want. You do not have to stay in the same arena or battle the same challenger over and over but I think that skipping around is a waste of time so I pick one challenger per day and keep fighting until I get the notification that I have collected the maximum number of items. Even if you don’t see a prize listed on the final page of the fight after you see the victory screen you need to check your inventory. Sometimes there will be a prize or two there, sometimes there won’t be. That’s just one of a couple of known glitches of the Battledome.
A lot of people wonder if facing off against different challengers every day will reward you with better prizes; there are speculations about it but without testing theories yourself you aren’t going to be able to see which works best for you and the fighting skill of your Neopet. There are some challengers that take six or seven rounds to kill so you have to make sure you have enough healing potions to cure your pet when a battle is over. You can not heal a pet mid-fight nor can you visit the Healing Springs while you pet is engaged in a fight. I usually remove 10 of the Healing Potion XI from my Safety Deposit Box to use between fights to get as close to max hit points without wasting them. If I am at 165 HP then I just wait until the next fight because the Healing Potion XI will heal your pet 35 lost points. Each healing potion has a different cure amount.
January 24 – PoisonGirl_666 vs. The Mummy: Slime Soup, Ghost Wrap, Bri Codestone, Eliv Thade Sludge Shake, Vux Codestone, Ghastly Stew, Bottled Droolik Drool, Undead Celery, Zombie Marshmallows, Crispy Pumpkin Chips, Large Grundo Toe With Lint Side Order, Eliv Thade Wrap, Slime Soup, Kew Codestone, Pumpkin Slice

January 26 – PoisonGirl_666 va Zafara Rogue: Orn Codestone, Large Grundo Toe With Lint Side Order x2, Red Zafara Plushie, Eliv Thade Wrap, Festering Coffee, Crispy Pumpkin Chips x2, Main Codestone, Lu Codestone, Vo Codestone, Orn Codestone, Mau Codestone, Undead Celery, Tai-Kai Codestone. This was not a typical battle because getting seven Codestones from a daily battle session is a little on the high side; I did not get any red Codestones but that’s fine with me. I did have to do nineteen battles to get my items though so there were some rounds that yielded nothing in the way of prizes or NP.
January 27 – PoisonGirl_666 vs. Spider Grundo: Box of Skull Truffles, Mau Codestone, Ghastly Stew, Cui Codestone x2, Spyder x3, Undead Celery, Orange Spyder Candle, Grundo Stix, Toy Spider Ring, Candy Corn Stuffed Pumpkin, Large Grundo Toe With Lint Side Order, Main Codestone
January 28 – PoisonGirl_666 vs. Meuka: Orn Codestone, Zombie Marshmallows, Pack of Snot-Flavoured Gum x2, Rotting Wormburger, Undead Celery, Festering Coffee, Buzz Snot, Undead Turnip, Bone Dog x2, Mau Codestone, Sho Codestone. This one was tricky because there were several glitches where I had to restart a match and needed to do a lot of extra fights because of ‘no prize’ battles. When I had to restart a battle I did not get my lost hit points back so I ended up wasting a couple of the Healing Springs Residue potions. If you get an error message saying that there was trouble sending a move, refresh the page. Do not start a new fight or you will end up losing the match and that loss will get added to your total of wins / losses / draws. I only received 13 items from all the battles when I got the “You have reached the item limit for today! You can continue to fight, but no more items can be earned” so it will be a long time before I battle Meuka again.

This was a horrible day in the Battledome, I had five fights that would not complete so I had to restart them.
I have been switching up my challengers and have come to the conclusion that outside of the challenger-specific prizes there’s no pro or con to any challenger in a specific arena. With the newly release Mysterious Dig Site in Tyrannia and all the talk of a new plot and / or war, a lot of people are starting to hoard the prizes that have been given out in the Battledome fearing that the prize list will change. If you are a smart cookie you wouldn’t have waited until the last minute to start stocking up on anything and everything that was given out.
