What is the Hidden Tower?
The Hidden Tower is a tower in Faerieland in which Fyora the Faerie Queen sells her rare and powerful artefacts to Neopia's elite. The word elite is appropriate because it's no use going there unless you're rich, most of her items cost millions and millions. So if you're planning on buying something there, be prepared to save up a lot of money first.
In June 2007 the Hidden Tower changed, it was no longer opened to people who have accounts under 4 months old. They were redirected to Faerie City if they tried to enter the Hidden Tower. On April Fools Day 2009 there was a joke that involved the Hidden Tower being closed. Since then the Hidden Tower access changed once more. Now, people with accounts younger than 4 months old can enter the tower, but they cannot buy any items.
In 2010 a new feature was introduced at the Hidden Tower: Loyal User Perks. Every third Wednesday of the month there is 3% discount for users with accounts older than 60 months old.
Where is the Hidden Tower?
You will notice that the Hidden Tower is hard to find, hence its namesake. You cannot see the Hidden Tower on the Faerie City map, but it is there, you just need to know where to look to find it. On the image below you can see the exact location.
When you visit the Hidden Tower, Fyora will talk to you. There are different things Fyora can say to you. Below you can see all the options, some of them are rather funny.
My favourite is the Rod of Nova (but I seem to be sold out!)
These magical artifacts are centuries old!
I will add more items to my stock soon!
You could never afford any of these!
You must be strong to wield these items in battle.
You will never lose another battle again!
No, I dont do loans!!!
What does it sell?
A long time ago, when people thought about the Hidden Tower, they automatically associated it with weapons. Not just weapons, but the strongest, the most powerful and the most expensive weapons in Neopia. Back then, nearly all items Fyora sold in the Hidden Tower were weapons.
Not too long ago Fyora decided to start selling other things in the Hidden Tower as well. Paint Brushes, Faerie Dolls, Dubloons, Trading Cards and even Plushies! Right now the Hidden Tower sells a variety of rare and expensive items.
The Hidden Tower isn't like any other shop. It doesn't restock like the regular shops do. The Hidden Tower always has the same items in stock, even if someone buys something, the items in stock stay the same. The only time the Hidden Tower stock changes is if Fyora decides to sell new items. Mostly when she decides to sell some new items, a few others get retired and she stops selling those.
It is also possible that when you visit the Hidden Tower it is closed, Fyora will ask you to come back later. This lasts for an hour and then the Hidden Tower will be open again.
