Wasting a Turn for a Useless Item [at Jul 19th, 2008; 8:14 PM]
1 / 10

Considering a Stone Snowball does 6.2 to 11.6 (average of 8.9 unless there's a sliding scale) and this can actually not work, let's factor in how much damage you'll actually be doing per turn.

Let's say this will work 2 out of 3 times, and the Stone Snowballs will always do 8.9. So you'll use one turn making one, and one turn using one. Let's see the average amount of icons over 10 turns.

One turn will be used to make a snowball. 1 Turn. The next turn you do 8.9. 2 Turns. The next turn you make one. 3 turns. The next turn you use the snowball, 17.8 icons total so far. 4 turns. The next turn you don't get a snowball. 5 turns. The next turn, because you don't have a snowball to attack with, you have to use this again. 6 turns. You use the snowball, 26.7 icons total. 7 turns. You make another snowball. 8 turns. You use the snowball, 35.6 icons total. 9 turns. You don't get a snowball this time. 10 turns.

So, 35.6 icons over 10 turns.

35.6 / 10 = 3.56

With this you'll essentially be doing around 3.56 icons per turn, depending on luck of course. Enough said.

Pretty much a waste of NP. Remember that Stone Snowballs are not that strong plus this weapon has the tendency to not work.
