Pet Slots are Live
Posted by Dave on December 20, 2021, 10:16 am NST
You may have noticed that the Neopets.com site went down earlier this morning—and for once, that actually meant a new feature is now live: additional pet slots!
Additional pet slots are now available to purchase in the NC Mall
, ranging in price from 340 NC to 500 NC per slot, depending on how many you buy in bulk and if you purchase before December 26, 2021.
The +1 slot sells for 500 NC
, the +5 slots sells for 2,250 NC
(450 NC per slot), and the +10 slots normally sells for 4,250 NC
(425 NC per slot). From now until December 26th, the +10 slots purchase is on sale for an introductory price of 3,400 NC
(only 340 NC per slot).
Apart from that, the details of having extra pet slots are simple: once you have additional slots, you can create a new Neopet, adopt one from the pound, or transfer in a Neopet from another account! There's not anything new or different here compared to the number of slots we already had.
When purchased, the +X slots item isn't deposited in your inventory, but is auto-activated on your account. This means that right now, pet slots cannot be gifted to Neofriends, and if you'd like extra slots on your side accounts, you'll need to purchase the slots separately there.
Alongside this update, active Premium
subscribers have also received 3 additional bonus pet slots with their active subscription, making the total Premium slots +4 (previously, it was +1 for active Premium users).
The Pound transfer limit has also been suspended, so if you choose to add additional slots to your main account, you can queue up Neopet transfers from your side accounts without worrying about hitting a limit.
The Pound transfer limit has been confirmed by TNT to be suspended indefinitely
unless TNT finds a need for a restriction again in the future. 🎉
Lastly, Lutaris can now be transferred between accounts. Previously, they could not be transferred. (Lutaris continue to run away when abandoned.)
How many pet slots can I have total?
The answer to this is now somewhat
complicated, as there are now 3 ways that extra slots can be added to your account! Here's how:
- 6 slots are available to all accounts as the base amount.
- +4 slots are added as a perk to accounts with an active Premium subscription.
- +10 slots are now available to be purchased in the NC Mall, as seen above.
In total, all non-Premium accounts can have up to 16 pet slots total (6 base + 10 NC slots), and all active Premium subscribers can have up to 20 pet slots total (6 base + 4 Premium perk + 10 NC slots). Remember, you can only purchase Premium on your main account.
