Attack Pea

At a Glance (3/3):
Pop your opponent with 24 icons of pure earth with this tiny little pea! Then promptly consume it to gain a boost in vitamin c.

In-Depth (3/4):
This pea will utterly destroy any and every shield barring 100% earth blockers like Shield of Pion Troect, and any reflector that reflects 50%+ earth. Additionally, it is extremely difficult to outdamage it, as the only weapons capable of doing so is Seasonal Attack Pea, Super Attack Pea, Faerie Slingshot (from its strong hits), Ghostkersword and Sword of White Lies (from their stronger hits),

Price (0/2):
This is where Attack Pea starts to get rather unpopular. Grapes of Wrath deals the same amount of damage, but 9 icons of it is from fire, which makes it harder to counter, and thus, more desirable to wield. The prices are pretty close too, making GoW the better overall choice and effectively replacing the pea as the upgrade from G-sword and SoWL.

Bonus (1/1):
I've always wondered how you would use a pea as a weapon? Do you flick it at someone? Shoot it through a straw? Toss it in the air? The world may never truly know the horrors we put our neopets through in every fight in the Battledome!

Final Score: 7/10

Price/Power (3/5)
Cheaper then its older pea brothers and mighty good for 1P combat.

Countermeasures (0/5)
In 2P this can be cut down by many items including the Illusens Silver Shield and Shield of Pion Troect making it less interesting.

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
The Grapes of Wrath provide a better experience in 2P due to having the extra fire damage, while this peas older brothers the Seasonal Attack Pea and Super Attack Pea provide a pure upgrade path away from this.

Other Points (2 Bonus)
It is a classic retired cove item which needs a little more love from me, even if it isn't good enough to use.

Final Thoughts
Now where did I put my cape making kit...

1P 7/10: 24 icons is nothing to laugh it. Having it all in earth makes it even better for 1P. Its icon distribution is better for 1P than Grapes of Wrath, but it's also significantly more expensive. This is a luxury item that would be recommended if you have the NP to spend, but not enough for a stronger pea.

2P 5/10: What makes this pea good for 1P also makes it bad for 2P. Mono-earth is easily countered by Ultra Dual Shovel, Kings Lens, Craftsmans Lens, Pirate Captains Hat, Shield of Pion Troect, and Illusens Silver Shield. Also, opponents may morph into scorchio (-2.4 icons) or ixi (-4.8 icons) to dull the attack. This pea would be best in a role as an alternate attacker in a set; consider GoW instead.
