Bottled Faeries are items found around Neopia, as in Kauvara's Magic Shop for a very high price, Tiki Tack Tombola for winning, in random events, At 6:00 AM Neopian Standard Time (Pacific Time) every Wednesday, Balthazar likes to donate a lot of Bottled Faeries at the Money Tree. They are used to give your neopet Battledome abilities. There are currently six kinds of Bottled Faeries that exist in Neopia. The Bottled Grey Faerie has not yet been released to the public yet. In order of their appearance below, these are the Bottled Earth, Wind, Dark, Light, Water, Fire, and Grey Faeries. Click here to view the Abilities they might give you.
Neopia is the home for thousands, or even more than that, of Magical faeries. Some will give your Neopet abilities. Others won't. Anyways you may be wondering who is Balthazar is. Balthazar was abandoned by his owner. When he asked for help from some Dark Faeries, they laughed at him and attacked him. After years of fighting to survive, Balthazar decided to become a Faerie Bounty Hunter to exact revenge on the creatures that scorned him. He now travels around Neopia with magical bottles which he uses to capture faeries. Here's more detail on the story.
When you have a Bottled Faerie, it stays in your Inventory until it is used, given away, or put somewhere else like your Safety Deposit Box or Shop. To use a Bottled Faerie, you should first see a chart which lists the abilities each Faeries your NeoPet with for setting it free.
Some Faerie Abilities have no real purpose. Others are really useful in the Battledome. Some highly recommended abilities, that I think , are Sink, Burrow, Drain Life, Diamond Dust, Fiery Gaze, and Regeneration/Restore.(the recommended moves are shown in red at our abilities page) Make sure your NeoPet has a high enough level to be blessed with an ability before you release the Faerie, otherwise it will fly away without blessing your NeoPet.
If your NeoPet has been blessed with ability and your NeoPets level later falls below the level requirement for that ability, your Neopet will not be affected.
