    So the challengers have arrived... Getting stronger. I suggest you put a bit of thought into your set. A healer,
    couple of constants. Maybe a honey potion.


    http://www.neopets.com/prehistoric/outskirts/

    That will take you to your factions page.

    http://www.neopets.com/dome/arena.phtml

    That will take you to the battledome.


    WAVE 2!
    details in the spoiler

    Well wave 2 has just hit. The challengers are getting stronger. It may be difficult to beat these guys on Mighty if you don't have a relatively strong BD pet.

    [​IMG]

    Note: Missing the Thieves Guild representative.

    These challengers all have a base difficulty of 35. This raises to 42 on the Strong setting and 53 on Mighty.

    Achievements



    There is a purple status bar on http://www.neopets.com/prehistoric/outskirts/ which shows how close you are to getting max plot points for this stage. The bar fills up more if you are fighting challengers on the highest difficulty setting.

    It takes 40 wins on the hardest difficulty

    If anybody knows how many wins it takes to finish on the easier ones let me know.

    UPDATE: Supposedly takes 60 on medium and 80 on easy to fill the bar.

    Re: WAR CHALLENGERS HAVE ARRIVED!

    I could only fight once and then it started glitching. I got some sort of NC item that has to be opened with another NC item.

    Now I'm at work, so I hope it will be fixed by the time I get home =)

    ¬°FINALLY WAR IS HERE!

    yay, grinding those one hit battles, and I really appreciate that they show the cap because I would have gladly grinded each of those minions to 100 just to be sure

    40 wins at mighty difficulty is enough to achieve maximum score...

    40 wins wouldn't be hard if it wasn't for the lag. I'm getting one hit kills but it takes so long to load the BD that getting up to 40 is still taking a while

    40 kills to get max points is with the hardest setting. It takes more wins the lower the difficulty. Although the hardest setting is still very easy

    Re: WAR CHALLENGERS HAVE ARRIVED!

    you should add that there are going to be hidden achievements each day.

    First day:
    Complete a fight with a pet who is wearing a wig or hat. Any wig or hat, NC or NP should work.
    Equip any weapon to your pet. Unequipping and re-equipping a weapon will also work.

    Maybe completing these achievements may give you more reward points?

    Also, I have fulled up my challenge bar with around 45 battles

    Re: Plot Challengers!

    So what does filling up the bar do, exactly? So far there are no achievements or anything, so I am not sure if it's crucial or not.

    Re: Plot Challengers!

    Filling up the bar is part of the plot achievements. It will net you extra points at the end to spend in the prize shop. It's also assumed that the faction that has the most people completing that part will be the winning faction at the end of the plot.

    Re: Plot Challengers!

    At this stage filling the bar seems silly as everyone can do it... The thing will be hitting the cap when stronger challengers arrive...

    is that even necessary or are they just way too enthusiastic lmfao

    Lol way too enthusiastic. There's always people that so that. They spend more time doing plot things just in case there's a chance they can get a few more plot points. I don't really like the cap being so low. With the challengers being so weak it's too easy. Not ver "war" like.

    Re: Plot Challengers!

    Nope nothing yet. Usually takes 2-3 days for them to release the next step. And being a weekend now (in Australia at least) I'm guessing they won't release anything else until Monday.

    EDIT: News released some more info. Expect a new wave of challengers on Sunday. Does this mean TNT works weekends?
