Earth only attack weapon [at Jul 3rd, 2011; 3:08 PM]
4 / 10

If you need something that only attacks with Earth icons and is cheap, this would be one of the more cost effective.

Power (1/4): Can't really say this is very powerful, as 6 icon weapons are all pretty common.

Price (2/4): It is surely cheap, but with only 6 icons, still can't rate it any higher.

Another Angle (1/2): Gets a point for being mono icon.

Alternatives: If you are just looking for a large number of earth icons, Scroll of the Earth, Dusty Magic Broom or even Essence of Esophagor are all worth looking at.

On the high end of mono icon earth weapons, nothing beats Attack Pea, but that is out of everyone's price range most likely.
Below the Standard [at Jul 3rd, 2008; 6:37 PM]
4 / 10

6 icons are below the standard now, but I love mono-types, so this is still worth considering.

Power(1) 6 icons.

Price(2) This is only a hint above the average price of reasonably-priced mono-type 6-icon weapons.

Strategy(1) Earth in small numbers is commonly blocked, and though this is a mono-type, it doesn't do nearly enough. Personally, I find earth mono-type not even worth the slightly elevated price, which defines my dislike for the Honey Potion.

Other(0) I like mono-types, but not earth mono-types.

Defenses: The classic trio of common low to mid level defense. Leaf Shield, Patched Magic Hat and Sophies Magic Hat.

Upgrades: Honey Potion and Carrot Blade are other earth-bulk weapons.

Alternatives: Sophies Wooden Spoon is somewhat overpriced, but does 6 earth plus blocks 5 water.
