Better than it used to be! [at May 11th, 2014; 4:25 PM]
7 / 10
Power to Price (5/6): Now that this weapon is readily available via Grave Danger, it's worth considering again! As an upgrade to Purple Sticky Hand, this weapon is now actually cheaper than its downgrade. Plus, it has a better chance to steal. It will successfully steal close to two out of three times, which is nice. The only thing better would be a higher percentage, such as the 100% offered by Heavy Robe of Thievery, but that's considerably more expensive, and it has a movement requirement, which most people don't train for.
Expensive, but mostly effective [at Nov 3rd, 2011; 4:59 AM]
6 / 10
Price (0/2): Too expensive.
Effectiveness (2/4): Steal rate is around 62%, its not a bad stealer for 1p, but not all that great for the cost.
Usefulness (4/4): If you need a stealer in 1p, this is not a bad one to have on hand. There aren't many 1p opponents that are useful to steal from, but of the few that are, this is useful enough to have in the SDB. Keep in mind this goes to your opponent for the rest of the battle if it steals from them. 1p opponents won't use it back on you, so you are safe there. 2p will possibly use it on you...so always be wary of what is in your first weapon position. However, even with a 62% effectiveness this really has no place in 2p unless you just want to have a little fun with it.
Upgrades: Rainbow Sticky Hand is slightly more effective at 87%. But it is even more unbuyable than this one. If you want 100% steal rate, then the Heavy Robe of Thievery is the one to shoot for (but that has a 201 movement requirement, and you'd need to consider that in the total cost if you haven't trained movement)
