Good for mass light/earth dealers [at May 21st, 2013; 5:50 PM]
4 / 10

It's a fairly affordable weapon at only 100 NP or so, but you have to guarantee that your opponent will use mass light or earth weapons for this to be useful.
This reflects back a sizeable amount of Illusens Staff, Hanso Charisma Charm and Ghostkerbomb. No single-player opponents use any of those weapons, apart from Giant Ghostkerchief and war challengers from long ago, and since most people focus on 1-P nowadays this isn't a very good weapon.

Downgrades: Broken Mirror Shield has a 1/3 chance of reflecting 25% light for 500 NP, but you really don't want a downgrade to this weapon anyways.

Alternatives: Serf Lens reflects 25% light and only costs 1 NP.

Upgrades: Craftsmans Lens reflects 50% of light and earth, but is ridiculously overpriced at 1.8 million. Dual Battle Mirror reflects 50% of light for 5k or so. Combo Battle Mirror reflects 75% of light, but has a ridiculous price tag of 5M.
