Overview: 10 icons of damage that can be bought after playing a few games? What's not to love? Well, there are a few things...

The Good: 10 icons and none of that fractional nonsense. When you need icons for cheap, the scroll is a decent choice. Despite my general hate of scroll art, the art for the Scroll of the Wise actually isn't too bad.

The Bad: Using four different icon types means this is probably going to be partially blocked every time. If you take a random 8-icon or better dual duty, there's at least a 57% chance that it'll beat the scroll. This same weakness applies to pretty much the entire scroll lineup, including Scroll of Knowledge, Scroll of the Scholar, and Scroll of the Fool.

The Ugly Truth: If you're going into a 1-player battle or enjoy gambling (betting that your opponent isn't using any shields at all), this may be the scroll for you.

Price/power (3/5): The price has come down quite a bit, but still not cheap enough compared to the similar Scroll of the Scholar and Scroll of the Fool.

Tactical (3/5): Though it's very similar to the Scroll of the Scholar, its smaller icon spread may actually prove to be its undoing. This one is extremely vulnerable to the likes of Virtupets X-514 Super Shield and Parasol of Unfortunate Demise.

Bonus (0/1): At the time of writing, using this scroll would probably not be a wise choice.

Closing remarks: Aside from the two scrolls mentioned above, it may also be a good idea to look at 9-iconers such as Golden Compass or Throwing Cutlass. In particular, the Golden Compass comes out on top against this.
