    Ok so I,m a first time user and have Botw and the amiibo are bloody expensive but I found someone on Craigslist who is selling NFC tags with the data for the Zelda amiibo for $20 and I wanted to get fierce deitys costume but I'm paranoid. Is spoofing safe. Could Nintendo ban me for using an unreleased amiibo? I'm just wanting to be sure this isnt going to backfire before spending money on this stuff.

    Why spend $20? Download tagmo, and flash your own for $1 each or less. As for safe I'm not sure. I've been using them for a few weeks and as long as the game sees them as legitimate then I see no problem. An unreleased amiibo may be treated differently though.

    First you dont just load the amiibo and get the cloths. Its a thing of chance.

    And next there is no way nintendo can tell anything about the amiibo that woukd get you ban.
    Everything shows up as a real amiibo.
    And finally buy your own tags and do it yourself.l with a smart phone that has nfc

    The reason I'm going through someone else is because my phone doesn't have NFC capabilities and my computer is slow and outdated since I don't use it. I've seen people use the unreleased amiibo to get the Fierce Deity armor I'm just paranoid.

    Buy the cheapest phone you can with NFC you'll thank yourself in the long run. If you plan on ever needing another amiibo

    I know it's a game of chance and in another reply I stated that my phone is not NFC compatible so this is the cheapest solution for me right now. But thank you I just get super paranoid and I was worried and you helped clear things up a bit

    Load up tagmo add the needed files and flash to nfc tag.
    Pretty easy. The only problem is it takes a while to get the cloths. I think it took me 3 or 4 days (can only scan the amiibo once preday)

    I have 30 tags for sale. I'll sell you 5 tags for 20$ CDN and I will send them by regular mail. I will only send them within Canada. They are 18 mm round stickers with a white back, no logos on them. They work fine for amiibos. I have made 15 amiibos for BOTW which I'm using on wiiu. I'm using the latest Tagmo app, it couldn't be simpler to flash a tag. I made a total of 16 tags , but one failed for some reason, it was a spoofed Link. Since amiibos require to be locked , it is not possible to erase this tag anymore. Not sure if it was the tag , tagmo or my manipulation that killed the tag. My friend flashed 10 without hassles. So 1 out of 26 failed. I did manage to get the deity armor set, you can only scan the tag once a day but you can reload your save as often as you want in order to get the item you really want from the chest. I've gotten most of the exclusive gear, missing a piece or two, but too lazy to keep reloading until I get all the gear I want. I'll probably finish it over the week-end.

    I am in the greater Montreal region (south shore) in Québec, if anyone wants to meet instead of mail shipping. Otherwise you can pay with paypal.

    I made a few cards using the amiibo cards images from the forum here. PM me if interested

    The only way for Nintendo to ban you using unreleased amiibo spoofs would be to read your saves at a distance , or that within BOTW itself it would report unreleased amiibos used.. but that would be a long shot in both cases IMO.

    Honestly, I would lower that price. You could get 20 for about $20 IIRC

    You can pretty much get them for whatever price you want if you look hard enough but 5 for $20cdn seems expensive. I've been buying the white plastic card versions in lots of 10 for USD$7.00

    I have an old Samsung S3 collecting dust. Would that be a considerable option to use?

    This phone has NFC so yes, you can use it to write to NFC215 tags.
