Ratings - Ancient Hourglass
Price/power (0/5): Extremely expensive, even for a freezer.

Tactical (0/5): 100% is the maximum chance of freezing possible. The Magical Marbles of Mystery don't cost anywhere near as much as this hourglass.

Bonus (1/1): Because I can't give it a 0.

Closing remarks: Get the aforementioned marbles for a reliable freezer.

Price/Power (0/5)
Providing damage with a heal is the general staple upgrade for a freezing item, however only when it is a 100% freezer. Since this may take a few shots to hit it just isn't worth your time, not even to mention the price.

Countermeasures (0/5)
When frozen you are frozen so nothing you can do, however here the idea that you are only doing 5 icons of damage per turn until you do freeze? Eh.

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
Ice Dice provides a small chance of multifreeze so is already better then this, you also always have the 100% freezer range such as the Freezing Potion... Realistically though the best upgrade you could have from this if you have the cash is the Moehog Skull which is the best freezer on neopets.

Other Points (1 Bonus)
Retired cove item

Final Thoughts
It sure is ancient, it came from a time when freezing was hard to do.
