Price/Power (4/5)
Decent price due to being a GMC prize. While it may not be as cost effective as a Honey Potion, it more than makes up for it with its extra brute force. When working with bombs it is important to have them be more powerful than the weapons in your set. With this one? It helps you all the way until you get a anagram sword, so that seems fairly nice to me. Not many bombs reach this level

Countermeasures (5/5)
While given how common earth is in high end powers it may be possible that someone is rocking a Shield of Pion Troect, Pirate Captains Hat or Illusens Silver Shield- with all the choices right now for attacking icons and weapons it seems more likely that users would chose a better tower full blocker.

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
Sword of Thare, just go for the whole hog.

Other Points

Final Thoughts
Bombs and healers are two areas which I wish Jumpstart would do their "overpowered item" thing. Bombs have became increasingly disappointing as icon numbers in multiuse items rise and healers have been underwhelming for years now. I wonder what the future will hold, maybe one day a healer or bomb so powerful will come out I will eat my words but for now- I can dream.

This weapon is nearly as powerful as something such as Sword of Thare, and if you completed the games challenge you got it for free. That is just a really great deal. If your budget is under 10 million for your set, this is almost surely going to be in your lineup if you got it from the challenge. From an investment standpoint, it could become a collectors item.
