Neopets Investments for Dummies
For those who want to make a few extra Neopoints every year, and want a guide to help them.
So you like neopets, and go on www.neopets.com quite often. You feel you make a fair amount of neopoints, but you still would like more. You’ve been looking at investing your neopoints in something, but don’t know what exactly to invest in. Well, I feel I may be able to help you out greatly!
So what’s the secret to neopets? How do you make great investments that will make you millions of extra neopoints? Well, first of all, investments don’t just gain you neopoints, they actually multiply your neopoints. A good investment will result in a multiplication that is above 1, in which case you earn 1 neopoint for every so many neopoints you put into the investment. For example, if you buy an item at 500,000 neopoints, then sell it for 2,000,000 neopoints, you are multiplying your neopoints by 4, not just making 1,500,000 neopoints. This is because, had you bought a second item at the same price, and sold for the same price, you would have made 3,000,000 neopoints instead of 1,500,000 neopoints, and therefore, there isn’t a set value, but a number determined by the amount of neopoints you put in. This basically means that you need to put neopoints in to get neopoints out, and the more you put in, the more you get out.
What are some good items to invest in? There isn’t really a specific item, but more so a group of items that changes yearly. There are events that happen now and then, such as the yearly altador cup, the yearly daily dare, and the randomly occuring plots. Some of these give out items that can multiply your neopoints by an acceptable amount. Others just give you easy items that make you more the faster you sell them. The Altador Cup, for example, usually has the biggest, hardest to get item go up fairly high after about one year of release. But this doesn’t mean it never goes down. Like many items, these prizes tend to start fairly high, drop down a bit and stay low between the half point between years, then go back up really high when the next prize is released. This means that you can actually gain more in the average year by waiting a few months after release to buy the items, then sell them right when the next prize is released.
“Well I followed this guide up to this point, and I disagree, I find that it may make some lose neopoints!” is how you may be feeling right now. It may make some lose neopoints! Any investment can make you lose neopoints. If you don’t want to lose neopoints, don’t use neopoints to try and make neopoints. Also, use common sense when you are investing. If you wait a few months, and an item that you think is good is going up instead of down, maybe you should buy it now under the impression that it will continue to go up. Maybe you should wait more to see if it should go down, then count it has a loss if it skyrockets, but feel good because you played it safe.
