The price of these finally stabilized at around 500k.

This may inflate over time due to being a war prize, or deflate if someone with a secret stash of these decides to sell. If this does inflate however, it will be done slowly.

What a nice addition I must say, every low budget battler fell in love with the golden compass when it came along, but now we have another affordable, more powerful, and more strategically enhanced dual duty to choose from! Personally, I don't like full blockers too much because at best, you stop their attack and come out even, at worse, the other six icons one has to choose from could break through. Thing is, this also has considerable attack in case you share your doubts about full blockers with me. With five icons that go through sink, and five that go through burrow, these icons will boost your confidence when hitting an opponent who might use a faerie ability.

Also know, that if you use burrow and this, the only thing that can do damage to you for that turn is light. Then again, if you have a light defending dual duty too, you could technically be immune that turn.

Lastly, this covers the hole in two HT shields, the dark in Hubrid Nox Memorial Shield and the dark in Faerie Tabard.

Downgrades: If you cannot afford this yet, but want to get a dark defending dual duty (say that 5 times fast) take a look at Golden Compass and Gilded War hammer.

Defenses: The downside to this weapon is that earth and light are very easy to block. Ghostkershield and Hubrid Nox Memorial Shield completely shut this down. Patched Magic Hat also brings this to just 2 light icons while defending more physical just in case.

Alternatives: Ring of the Lost has now deflated to around 4 million because it is just as powerful as this, yet with fire instead of earth icons, which could be a good or a bad thing you pick. If you decide to buy one however, get one a.s.a.p. because they are retired and will inflate again eventually. Ghostkershield also blocks all dark but is a shield instead of a dual duty. Really your closest upgrade is Illusens Staff which does a ton more, for a ton more.

I really like this weapon. Ever since I've had it, my ONLY reason I've sold it is to make profit :) Otherwise this will remain in my set In case those pesky dark weapons come around.

Power to Price (6/6): Full dark blockage + 10 icons for 500k? Woweeeee. Sorry to you Ring of the Lost owners.

Tactical (3/3): This gets 5 icons through both burrow and sink. The full dark blockage can be combined with burrow and Faerie Tabard for awesome protection. This also shuts down Sword of Skardsen, Viras Winged Dagger, Wand of the Dark Faerie, and Jhudoras Potion.

Other Observations (1/1): Only 12000 plot points.

Downgrades: Golden Compass.

Alternatives: Ring of the Lost for 10m upwards. Ghostkershield blocks all dark plus a couple more other icons.

Upgrades: You'll be looking towards Kelpbeards Trident and Sword of anagram swords.

Defenses/Countermeasures: Patched Magic Hat, Devious Top Hat and Cane, and Ghostkershield will block the attack a bit. Hubrid Nox Memorial Shield blocks it outright.
