Decent Intermediate Weapon [at Feb 3rd, 2011; 1:29 PM]
8 / 10

Power[3/3] 13 icons is not bad, landing this as a solid intermediate weapon.

Price[3/3] Coming in under Wand of Reality and Bow of Destiny, this will pack a punch for your nps. This is on average more than Ylanas Blaster at the moment, but I suspect they'll even out to around the same price after the hype of the new weapon wears off.

Strategy[2/3] How can you go wrong with 13 icons? The only issue here is the icon type. Compared to the other 13 iconers in the same price range, this doesn't have quite as good a selection of icons. In comparison to the Ylanas Blaster, air and light are fairly equivalent as to how hard they are to block, the additional physical instead of fire isn't as useful in my opinion. There really isn't enough of any one icon type to overrun any common shield. This is also crippled by both burrow and sink.

Other[0/1] Great if you got it with plot points, good option for those wanting to advance past beginner battling without spending a whole lot, but nothing really spectacular otherwise.

Alternatives: Ylanas Blaster, Bow of Destiny and Wand of Reality are the most common choices.

Upgrades: Werelupe Claw Necklace is probably the most direct upgrade, after that it is Sword of Skardsen and Kelpbeards Trident.

Downgrades: If you can't quite afford this, look at Scuzzys Comb, Ramtors Spellbook and Geraptiku Attack Leaf.
