This can reflect rocks that are being thrown at you! [at Jun 17th, 2012; 4:10 AM]

Wow, the ability to reflect 50% of three different icons, back to your opponent, is truly unique. What you need to think about though is the fact that you aren't coming out on top when using this. This does however somewhat cover the holes in the faerie ability Sink.

Think about it this way, at this level, you are most likely up against the Anagram swords, or better. Thus, the physical or different icons of these weapons will get through Kings Lens. One on one, the anagram sword would technically win.

When dealing with anagram swords, there is a 3/6 chance, that the offense will get through this completely, and a 3/6 chance that you will deal slightly more damage to your opponent due to your physical icons that break through. It's either a win for the attacker, or a close draw. This is the reason why I'm not a fan of this weapon. Of course if your opponent happens to use two weapons that are reflected by this, it is up to whatever equipment you chose to use second, to out power whatever remaining icons that break through your lens. If you fail to do so, you technically lose that round.

Currently, I seem to run into a lot of these at my level. Yes, they are truly annoying, but I've come out on top 9 times out of 10. The reason? They are somewhat easy to counter. Simply use the other 4 icon types at your disposal. Of course keep in mind, your opponent may be prepared for this as well. Also, the builds I see using this seem to try and out tank my offense. They will have significantly higher HP (trying to "last" longer than my pet can since the reflection is 50/50). Thus they will try to stall the battle, while hp slowly drains from each side, and maybe a surprise attack here and there. This stall allows the user to hopefully force/trick their opponent into using sink/burrow at an unneeded time.

In conclusion,
A common use for this, is to combo this lens with a shield+defend. The reflected icons can penetrate most of your opponent's defense, while the shield and defend ability allow you to take minimum damage. Just keep in mind, head to head with an anagram sword, the physical icons may mean the klens user will take slightly more damage.

This is one of the rarest item that Coltzan would give in his shrine. The ability to reflect 3 kind of icons in one weapon is truely amazing. Great in countering the Attack Pea, Seasonal Attack Pea and most dark weapons. Just think of this as a mini-sink+burrow.

But being only 50% reflector means you get the same amount of damage plus the rarity really affects it's price tag. It's very easy to counter, just don't use anything with earth, light and dark in it.
