Semi-Golden Bow [at Nov 19th, 2011; 10:55 AM]
5 / 10

Power to Price (3/6): This is about double the price of other 13-iconers (or nearly 13-iconers). Still not too bad though, considering you can get it for free from NQII if you are lucky.

Tactical (1/3): Earth and Fire are easily blocked by common shields and dual duties. Burrow destroys this but Sink falls cold. Also, this is one of the couple weapons that Yooyuball Goal Net Shield does a great job against.

Other Observations (1/1): I got this from Neoquest II.

Downgrades: Ramtors Spellbook, Scuzzys Comb, Chakram of the Air Faerie, and Bow of the Fire Faerie are your downgrades at 10 or 11 icons.

Alternatives: Rusty Pitchfork, Ylanas Blaster, Brynns Legendary Sword of Wraith Smiting, and Wand of Reality are on par with this weapon.

Upgrades: You'll be looking to upgrade to Sword of Ari, Sword of Tawre, Sword of Thare, Sword of Thigl, Sword of Skardsen, Sword of Reif, Kelpbeards Trident, Twin Faerie Blades, or Pirate Captains Cutlass next.

Defenses/Countermeasures: Sophies Magic Hat, Faerie Tabard, Ghostkershield, and Hubrid Nox Memorial Shield all take a huge chunk off.

Now that the price of this (and Wand of Reality) drop due to the release of Ylanas Blaster expect more encounters of this in the 2 player BD.

Ylanas Blaster has brought the price down to a more affordable level, and it's still as effective as ever. Burrow stops it completely, but it gets a tremendous 10 icons through sink that is pretty much unmatched until Ghostkersword.

This can blend very nicely with a variety of different weapons. You can go for variety, giving it help getting through Burrow and Faerie Tabard by mixing it up with weapons such as Ramtors Spellbook or Sword of Skardsen. Or you can stack icons with weapons such as Essence of Esophagor to overrun earth defenses, or Ylanas Blaster to give you plenty of earth, air, and fire.

Speaking of stacking, using two Bow of Destiny at the same time will pierce through almost any shield, getting 18 icons through Ghostkershield and 15 icons through Faerie Tabard. Truly impressive.

Alternatives: Ylanas Blaster deals almost as much of very similar icon types. Wand of Reality offers different types of icons.

Upgrades: Werelupe Claw Necklace or Sword of Skardsen for more damage.

Downgrades: Ramtors Spellbook is 10 icons. The 11-icon weapons are still a bit more expensive than Ylanas Blaster at the time of review.

Defenses: Burrow will shut it down for one turn. Ghostkershield and Faerie Tabard will control a single bow nicely.
