Ratings - Ultra Dark Reflectorb
Rating:

Price/power (4/5): Cheap, though very situational. However, it can be deadly in the right situations.

Tactical (3/5): You won't be needing this very often. There's also a chance that your predictions will be off, and you simply waste a slot. However, if you're fighting an enemy with much higher strength than you, this will come in handy.

Bonus (1/1): Can barely be considered fragile.

Closing remarks: Alternatively, save up for Hanso Charisma Charm.

At a Glance (1/3):
You and your opponent are taking half the damage your opponent throws at you AT BEST, if and ONLY if your opponent ONLY uses dark. Pretty risky to use for such mediocre reward. And then there's the off chance that it might break.

In-Depth (1/4):
With the strong presence of Hanso Charisma Charm and the two lingering dark defenders, Ghostkershield and Ring of the Lost, you will find that not many battlers are too keen on stacking massive dark. Not only that, but there are only a handful of dark weapons to actually stack together (Wand of the Dark Faerie, Jhudoras Bewitched Ring, Dark Faerie Collar, Jhudoras Potion, and Sword of Skardsen). Dark is generally thus reduced to sneak-attack tactics, and nullifies Ultra Dark Reflectorb's usefulness.

Of course, if you still wish to use this, then the way to use it is by predicting when your opponent will use SoS (or two weapons that have a lot of dark in it), then use UDR and another weapon that either attacks or blocks the remaining damage you take, thereby putting you in the lead for that round.

It's that simple. Not easy to actually execute, but it's better than taking a lot of dark to the face without an answer for it (even though dark has such a weak presence in the metagame).

Price (2/2):
This, like Expert Lens, is dirt cheap, currently priced at a whopping 1-2 nps!!

HCC is ~550k while RotL is ~2m, and G-shield is ~6.6m I think? But HCC is such a staple weapon, that you should upgrade to it whenever possible. It has respectable offense, strong dark defense, and great value. It will stick with you for a ...

Price/Power (1/5)
50% still isn't worth it but at least this is only 1np.

Countermeasures (0/5)
50% still isn't really enough, especially now there are alternatives to the Sword of Skardsen which make it less likely to even run into it. People expect dark, so people don't use it.

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
Dark wise the best choice is Hanso Charisma Charm , so use other items for now and save up for that instead.

Other Points (1 Bonus)

Final Thoughts
May be better then the Dark Reflectorb, but is still not worth it.
