What's your big NP maker?

Recommended Posts

Ugh! I cannot do restocking! I get some small good deals, but I continually miss the big ones, even in the "beginner" shops, and waiting around for the shop(s) I want to restock so I can try again is causing me more frustration than profit. I know anything that's not games requires patience. It's that I have to wait around, doing little things while minding the clock that's wearing my patience thin. I make more profit finding deals (snipes?) on the Super Shop Wizard (by the way, that is the best perk of premium, hands down!).

I've heard of people making several thousands or making millions from the stock market, but it seems my skills don't lie there either. Anything from the battledome is out because my pet is too weak at the moment. I seem to do well with the food club because I've won so far on the few bets I've made. I already play the mobile app, but that caps out at 50K. Yes, that's a lot on its own (to me anyway), but I don't want to stop there.

So, what's everyone's big profit maker and how do you do it?

It used to be games for me but lately I haven't been playing any. I do Trudy's, occasionally I play Ghoul Catchers, sell my stuff from the battledome (I have a decently trained pet) buy stocks and bet on Food Club.

Stocks is easy, you just buy 1000 shares that are worth 15 (or 10 if you have the boon from the obelisk battles) and then you wait. I just check them when I do my dailies so it's not that I'll sit around all day refreshing. When they reach 60 I'll sell. You can wait longer or less long, doesn't matter. Some of them will go up very high (100+) but not all, so you can just see what it's doing, as long as it's going up you wait and when you think it might drop or you don't want to risk it or you see it dropping you sell. It's a slow process tho but eventually they all go up.

Food club is more complicated to create bets from scratch but if you just follow someone else's bets and read some explanations you'll get the hang out of it. You don't have to create your own bets of course, you can just keep on following others. That's what I'm doing.

For Trudy's it's just important to spin every day and while you're at it, collect your interest.

Then sell every item you don't need/want from your dailies and you'll make a nice profit monthly all in all.

Formerly it was Food Club, but since I've been neglecting to bet it's now the profit I make off of selling Battledome items (codestones, neocola tokens).

I have the advantage of an old account with both: around 7k max per bet, and a pet I've been training for years. I battle the Kreludan S750 Defender Robot - he's pretty easy to take down with only 14 HP on Easy.

BD, because I'm premium and get nerks and bubbling fungus, now and then I get a good restock, and though I don't know if I profit in the long run, nerks to get brushes and opening grab bags to get valuable items. That's a gamble though. FC I do fairly often but my account isn't old enough to make staggering amounts (6 years).

I had a nerkmid suddenly appear in my inventory yesterday! So, that's where it came from!

Cool! But that was from a random event; an alien Aisha leaves you gross food or a nerk. When I say I get nerks it's b/c I battle in the Premium dome and that's a possible prize. Sorry for the confusion!

I get points from Trudy and interest. I also play some mirror games which have lower ratios than normal games so don't take as long to play.

I will agree that stock market is easy. 

Here is a small screenshot of some of my current stocks. 

The red and blue columns are the only ones you need to understand really. Red is most important. It shows what the current value of the stock you own is at in terms of points. 60 is optimal for selling as can be seen in the yellow row.  Blue column shows you how much you will get for selling at that current value. so yellow row shows that PEOP which is at 60 will sell for 360,000 NP. 

You really don't need to understand anything else.  So if you see a 60 click sell :P

I get lucky with randomly getting expensive items to sell! For example, I bought a full set of lab map pieces and then sold the extra ones that I got through random events. Oh and playing Trudy's, too. 

I've never bet on the Food Club before, but it seems pretty straight-forward. 

You guys helped me remember that I bought stocks a while ago! They're not quite at 60 yet, but I'm gonna take your advice and sell them as soon as they do. ?

For some reason I have very consistently good luck at Coconut Shy? Probably the only reason I have any neopoints is from selling what I win from that game. That, and the whole Trudy thing.

Really?! I get so frustrated by that quiggle's evil giggle that I can only play a few times before giving up...but, I guess that's what the mute button is for haha

Mine is really just Ghoul Catchers, Trudy, and Food Club. Stocks for long game. My SDB is full of crap I should sell, but I'm too lazy. Plus my battledome drops have been crap the past week. I think I got 2 red codestones, 2 neggs, and a bunch of rubbish fodder over the last 7 days. Oh, well. It be like that sometimes. I've never attempted restocking, and I doubt I ever will. Sounds just awful to me.

Ghoul Catchers seems to have a glitch right now. It says I'm awarded neopoints, but the neopoints never appear on my account.

Yeah, that has been happening for a while now. Just ignore it and either count how many games you've played or watch your NP's on hand. When they don't go up you've reached your max.

On a good battledome day I'll get 2 nerks which sell for 60-70k each then 50k from ghoul catchers. I have about 4-5 flash games that are quick for me so that's another 15k. Of course Trudy, too.

I think the best way to get neopoints is just to keep at it.   There's no certain way to get a bunch short term.  Get yourself a routine, games or dailies or whatever work for you, and do them each day, every day, no exceptions.   And a month or two down the road, you'll have a pile of neopoints.
