Hi. I'm a premium user on this website we all adore. Yeah, it's lame. I pay to play because I hate the ads and I get a NC item every month and some random event shits when I play Neoquest. BUT, as I've noticed before, a lot of people are not aware of this exact thing I'm going to explain in this simple and basic guide : SSW Sniping.
We're all familiar with the classic sniping. Searching one item, refreshing, refreshing, refreshing and giving up because it's relatively boring and not really lucrative. However, things change with the Super Shop Wizard. I'm guessing you're thinking that I'm simply going to explain you how it gives you the lowest price of the item you search and all that shit, but no. That's not what the real SSW Sniping is all about.
We all know this lil' motherfucker. He makes everything easier, but he's quite a bitch when it comes to sniping, because after 30-40 searches, he gets fucking tired and tells you to wait until the next hour.
See, the thing with what I'm about to teach you is to use another feature, darker and unknown of the SSW. It's the price only feature.
Now that you checked this, let's see what we get if, for example, we type in Maraquan Paintbrush. As you know Paint Brushes aren't searchable using the Shop Wizard, same with Treasure Maps, Nerkmids, Transmogrification Potions and some other things I can't really remember.
We get 'No items found'. This means that, at this very moment, there is no Maraquan Paintbrush in any user shop in Neopia. None. Let's try a more common item, let's say the Average Nerkmid.
Now, when the item is common, the SSW will give you the 10 lowest prices. It's rather useless for now, but maybe some of you can start to see where I'm getting with this small guide.
Let's say you decide to try sniping up paint brushes. You can simply enter the term in the SSW, check price only and hit up the search button.
Usually, you won't get anything. Sometimes it's just not your day, as this method is kinda known upon premium users, but sometimes you'll get something like this.
That's how you snipe with the SSW. Using the price only feature will give you either no price, or up to the 10 lowest. Sometimes you get the 5 lowest, that means there are only 5 of the searched item in all Neopia's shop. Sometimes you get lucky and get the 1 lowest. That's when you know you're onto something. Sometimes the item is worth 100k and you get disappointed but sometimes it's worth much, much more. I can't begin to tell you how much valuable things I sniped, ranging from 50 nps Transmogrification Potions to the 10k Pirate Draik Egg.Searching for 'Paint brush', matching 'Pirate Paint Brush'...
The 1 lowest prices of a Pirate Paint Brush average out to: 90,000 NP
Of course, when searching for Paint Brushes, keep in mind that you'll need to go see our old pal the regular shop wizard and you need to be quick, because Paint Brushes are literally the most sniped items ever.
When you finally get there, you buy that shit out, put in on the TP and wait for the money to come and raise into your Bank Account.
So that's it, you just learned how to make quick cash with the Super Shop Wizard. Also, using the Price Only feature has no limit, you can do it as long as you want. Find common terms like plushie, any neopets species, paint brush, stamp, anything that comes into your mind is fine.
Thanks for sticking 'til the end and remember, being premium also helps when getting unfrozen.
