Brynns Legendary Sword of Wraith Smiting, is a member of the '13' icon family added by the Faeries Ruin prize shop. Typically shortened to just Brynns Sword, this weapon actually does 12.75 icons. This difference in icons is small, even smaller than Ylanas Blaster's difference in pictured icons. Along with Ylanas Blaster, Brynns Sword is typically one of the cheaper 13-iconers. Altador Cup Throwing Star, Wand of Reality, and Bow of Destiny are usually slightly more expensive.

At a price of roughly one million Neopoints at the time of this review, Brynns Sword is a common upgrade for Scroll of Knowledge, and it is typically succeeded by Dr. Sloths Personal Bath Buddy. Brynns Sword is fairly priced given its power and its power compared to surrounding weapons. This weapon features four different icon types, which is somewhat more scattered than what is to be desired, but the spread is not a major issue for 1-Player battlers. Brynns Sword is better suited for 1-Player use than for 2-Player use.

In 2-Player, Dual Duty weapons like Rusty Pitchfork and Deadly Pugio can punish Brynns Sword. Even the lowly Scarab Ring can reduce Brynns Sword to 6.75 icons head-to-head. Hidden Tower shields like Ghostkershield, Faerie Tabard, and Dr. Sloths Personal Body Armour also greatly reduce Brynns Sword's attack. The Physical icons of Brynns Sword are particularly easy to block, but if paired with another heavy Physical weapon, only a full Physical blocker like Altadorian Swordbreaker will be able to block the entire Physical onslaught.

Price/power (5/5): 1 million NP for 13-ish icons is cheap compared to the NQII weapons. This continues a trend starting with Ylanas Blaster, which was so cheap that some people thought it "broke the Battledome".

Tactical (3/5): This is highly vulnerable to Sophies Magic Hat, Virtupets X-514 Super Shield, and Wanderers Cloak. Due to the icon spread over 4 types, it is also very easily to partially block, though fully blocking it is more difficult.

Bonus (1/1): Thanks to Ylanas Blaster and Altador Cup Throwing Star, this sword is likely to remain one of the cheapest 13-iconers for a long time.

Closing remarks: Most battlers at this level will have either this, Ylanas Blaster, or Altador Cup Throwing Star. Many will have more than one of the above.

Final score: 9/10
