Value 0/3: Since the Scroll of Knowledge is buyable and this has hovered around 300k, it's a bad buy.

Tactical 3/6: I can appreciate the function of this weapon, acting as a beefed up Ramtors Spellbook, and it's not easy to block both light and dark in this volume with shields at this level. However, this loses to too many common dual duties at or below the price range for this weapon including the Golden Compass, Hanso Charisma Charm, Ancient Gnarled Wand, Sword of the Dead, and Jhudoras Cursed Sword.

By using it, you put yourself at risk of being easily outmatched.

Other 1/1: I have no bias here as I did not fight for the sway, but this weapon looks cool and will probably be desirable for galleries in the future, so it may do well economically.

Conclusion: A nice upgrade to Ramtors Spellbook, but there are a lot of new dual duties on the block and this light/dark combo is vulnerable.

Price/Power (0/5)
A fair hunk of icons, as many as a Scroll of Knowledge which is good. However the price lets this down...

Countermeasures (1/5)
Dark is easy to block using the Hanso Charisma Charm, Light is easy to block with the Parasol of Unfortunate Demise... However, it does provide a harder to block combo then the Scroll of Knowledge due to the fact that people generally won't be carrying both.

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
I'd get a Hanso Charisma Charm at least, or get a Scroll of Knowledge... either way this one is basically worth avoiding.

Other Points (2 Bonus)
It is retired, and looks really rather fine.

Final Thoughts
At least it is better then the defence giving prizes.

Price/power (1/5): Expensive for what it does. Scroll of Knowledge does the same number of icons for much less.

Tactical (3/5): Mass iconage is useful, but there needs to be slightly more icons. Light is not easily blocked at this level, but Hanso Charisma Charm will easily beat this. Ultimate Negg Hammer will break even. Jhudoras Cursed Sword will come out on top. Even the Golden Compass will beat this by a little bit.

Bonus (0/1): NOOOOO!!! I was hoping for better prizes from a WAR!!!

Closing remarks: One of the better weapons from this war, but it still isn't that great. For the NP you'd be spending on this, you're better off spending a bit more on a Hanso Charisma Charm instead.
