Neopets Grave Danger Guide

You might think that petpets are simply sidekicks but you’d be wrong! Petpets can go on adventures of their own, and even wear equipment and collect prizes, just like your pets. Through Grave Danger in Neovia, you can send a petpet on a mission to bring you back untold fortune!


▻ Prepping your petpet

If it is not obvious already, it is essential that you have a petpet to play Grave Danger, which means one pet on your main account needs to have a petpet attached and named.

It’s important that you’re careful about which petpet you choose to go on an adventure. When you do this, the pet of which this petpet is attached cannot be pounded, the petpet cannot be removed, and the petpet cannot be zapped.

▻ Equipping your petpet

This is the point in which you can decide if you’d like to equip your petpet before sending it into the Catacombs. You can equip your petpet with items from the NC Mall that can only be used one time. After that, they disappear! There is only one piece of equipment currently available:

You don’t need to do anything to the equipment to use it. Simply click “Equipment” under your chosen petpet’s image and you will be prompted to chose something. You cannot stack equipment.

Using NC Mall equipment means your petpet will bring back an additional prize, specific and exclusive NC prize. You can read more about that below, in the Prizes section.

▻ Going on an adventure

Once you’ve chosen a petpet and equipped them (if you’d like to), then you will be prompted to verify your decision:

After you’ve done this, the image of your petpet on your pet’s lookup will change to this:

Next, you wait. You wait and wait and wait. In fact, you can wait anywhere from 3 to 10 hours for your petpet to return with a prize. During this time, you will be provided regular status updates on your petpet should you chose to check up on them:
