Price/Power (2/5)
Offers a pretty big single burst of icon damage. More expensive then the Scroll of The Dark Star, but that is without the extra light damage.

Countermeasures (2/5)
Being a species item it is only useful to the enemy if stolen by a Lupe which is good. While this level of dark is hard to fully block, it is rather easy to partly block this with items such as the Golden Compass, Kiko Skull Pirate Hat and Fish Scale Breastplate.

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
The Haunted Skull Fan offers common physical blocking with the same attack in air... The Rusty Cleaver converts defense into attack and offers a bulk fire attack... Both possible alternatives to this sans the species element.

Other Points (No Moo Bonus.)

Final Thoughts
Not a good enough reason to use a Lupe. IF you want that, look at the Lupe Wand instead.

People will look at me strange for saying that this is an excellent weapon, but I am gonna stick to my slime guns on this one.

What makes it good is that it is a uniquely mono-iconed: 6 darkness icons on attack and 3 light icons on defence. That may not seem much at all on the surface , but if you take a look at the Lupes species ability, you will notice that at level 50, a Lupe is able to attack with Lupe Breath at 3 darkness icons and 3 air icons.

Iron Lupe Helm is just shy of Jhudoras Bewitched Ring! :o

Some may argue that the widely available Hanso Charisma Charm makes this obsolete, which you can't really deny. But you can't really fault a species only weapon that sells for less than 5k.

It's also a perfect anti-stealing weapon, one that is not too powerful that you are completely crippled by its absence, but not too weak to the point that you're compromising any of your weapon slots. Oh, and can I say its useless to your opponents if they're not Lupes? Hehehe... ;)
