Price/Power (4/5)
The price has risen recently but if you can snag one cheaper it would be a great buy. This item isn't as talked about when compared to things such as the Scroll of Knowledge so yeah. 10 icons isn't perfect but it is pretty nice.

Countermeasures (4/5)
The main downside to this is that light is pretty easily blocked these days thanks to the Parasol of Unfortunate Demise. However the Parasol of Unfortunate Demise can not block the other icon types. Lair Beast Tooth Shield is the best chance to block this.

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
Other items with more pure power such as the Scroll of Knowledge or Barbat Throwing Star, but realistically at this level you should be satisfied until you are ready to move on up to a 13 iconer for the 1-2mil

Other Points (No Bonus)

Final Thoughts
Point away from face.

At the time of this rating, (December 7, 2012) this weapon is what I would label a hidden gem.

I found several of these available on the Shop Wizard for 20k-30k while writing this review. 10 icons for 20k-30k is nice, really nice, when you consider that people are still buying Ramtors Spellbook and Scuzzys Comb off the Trading Post. Energy Blaster deals the same exact 5 Light icons as those two weapons, but instead follows up the Light icons with 3 Fire and 2 Dark.

I personally prefer the Fire and Dark combo to the Physical icons of Scuzzys Comb, which can be blocked by most of the popular shields at this level. The 5 Dark of Ramtors Spellbook is nice, but replacing a few of them with Fire icons as in the case of Energy Blaster is not exactly a terrible thing either.

Energy Blaster can sneak through many popular shields at this level such as Leaf Shield, Yooyuball Goalie Armour, and Shiny Shoal Shell Shield completely unscathed! This is also one of the few cheap beginner weapons that is Physical-icon-free, which is a big plus in my book.

Scroll of Knowledge is another cheap weapon that deals one more icon than this Energy Blaster does, but deals five different icon types, which is a bit too much variation, allowing it to be partially blocked much easier.

As long as this weapon remains buyable on the Shop Wizard, I think it is an absolutely great upgrade over the entry-level 9 icon weapons.
