When quests come up quest partners PM the other and send the request on along with the NP and sit back while the other users gets the item and donates it back.

This is particularly good for partners who live in the same house.

Running two accounts to do this is considered wrong.

A Shop Wizard is a JubJub with amazing powers, which can find specific items in users shops and teleport you to them. His powers are limited though, and can only find average prices of the item. Also, it does not search all shops but divides the shops into groups of roughly equal sized based on alphabetical order and it searches the groups on rotation. The Super Shop Wizard is a much more powerful, and can find the very cheapest of a searched item.

Using The Shop Wizard

As the Shop Wizard randomly gives out the lowest prices when a users searches for something, users make use of the "refresh" button on their internet browser to reload the search data. Also, some users open two or more windows to search, so they can keep the link of the lowest deal and not lose it while refreshing.

Faerie Quests

When a user has a Faerie Quest, they are unable to use the Shop Wizard. Because of this rule many guilds and communities with the purpose of helping others find their items have been created, because while one user is unable to use the Shop Wizard, another can. Sometimes called Quest Partners, this user will search for the item on the Shop Wizard and either:

  1. Give the username of of the shop owner to the user with the quest.
  2. Buy the item and put it up in the Trading Post for the user.
  3. Give the item freely to the user.

Quest Partners are usually two users who live in the same or similar time zones. It's against Neopets Terms and Conditions for one user to use a side account to find their quest item.
