A Scorchstone is a rare gem in the shape of a Scorchio holding an orb (hence the "scorch" part of their name) used as Defence Magic in the Battledome. There are 12 types of Scorchstones with varying powers as of October 2009. The majority of Scorchstones are sold at the Defence Magic Shop, while 2 (Ice Scorchstone and Jade Scorchstone) are sold at the Hidden Tower.
Scorchstones are primarily known today for their ability to post-damage heal Neopets (with the exception of Jade, which is prior) during Battledome fights. These healing items have more worth to users because they can be used once per battle rather than one use (the exception being Ice Scorchstone, which can be used until it activates). The healing Scorchstones and the Battledome challengers who use them are...
- Creeping Shadows, Malevolent Shadow, Shrieking Shadows, Darigan Elemental, Tekkitu the Witch Doctor, Virtupets Militia
- Advisor Broo, Angry Snow Beast, Bennie the Jub, Bori Guard, Disgruntled Townspeople, Evil Sloth Clone, Herman Dorfdrap, King Skarl, Pillager, Ryshu the Nimmo, Skeletal Knight
- Benny, Blugthak, Cannon Master, Captain Scarblade, Chiazilla, Garin, Garoo Elite Specialist Riilan, Giant Ghostkerchief, Giant Hungry Malevolent Chomby, Goregas, Grand Commander, Greedy Kadoatie, Kanrik, Kastraliss, King Kelpbeard, Lab Ray Scientist, Magic Caster Skeleton Warrior, Maraquan Shieldmaiden, Mayor Thumburt, Petpetpet Horde, Pirate Champion, Plumbeard, Primary Grundo Bot RZ894, Punchbag Sid, Qasalan Mummy, Razul, Scordrax, Ships Cook, Skeleton Warlord, Slug Monster, Snow Beast, Space Faerie, Swordmaster Talek, The Drenched, Thief Brute, Thief Overseer, War Machines, Zombiefied Peasants
There are also some Scorchstones which can be used as defense against certain damage icons. These Scorchstones can be used throughout a Battledome fight.
The Jade Scorchstone is a rare and retired Scorchstone from the Hidden Tower. It's the most sought after of all Scorchstones and is prized by Battledome players for its once-unique 100% healing properties. Its popularity has waned when cheaper full healers were released, such as the Leaded Elemental Vial, which regularly restocks at the Royal Potionery, and the single-use Lucky Robots Foot, which restocks at the Battle Magic Shop. In comparison, the Jade Scorchstone would cost several million more NP than either item.
Like the Jade Scorchstone, the Ice Scorchstone is a full healer, yet it only activates as such 25% of the time when used. Unlike other healing Scorchstones, the Ice Scorchstone can continue to be used until it activates, after which it cannot be used till another battle starts. This feature has made it look poor to the eyes of frequent Battledome users, who prefer to have a reliable healing item rather than have it by chance. It was first released at the Hidden Tower on December 9, 2003, and continues to sell for 3 million NP as of October 2009.
