Price/Power (0/5)
Skarls Amulet is an item that is so expensive and rare chances are you will never own one. While the defense is decent, it offers nothing of value in today's battledome.

Countermeasures (3/5)
Realistically for the normal battler, the Hanso Charisma Charm is still the number 1 choice for darkness blocking. The added defense is very good, but realistically this item is at the same level of potency as a normal hidden tower defender and offers little extra value for the price

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
A Hanso Charisma Charm or Ghostkershield.

Other Points

Final Thoughts
Skarl should just cash in and sell his amulet, more useful that way

Pop For Your 'Points (1/3): Sadly, this is one of a kind now (if even that), and so the price will reflect that. All the same, it has no rival in what it does.

In Battle (3/5): So here we have a dual duty that leans far more towards defense than offense, to the point where it becomes all about the defense. While Skarls Amulet does block weapons such as Hanso Charisma Charm and Dark Faerie Collar, you will notice that more often than not most weapons will slide more past the defense than the offense can cover. For example, Skarls Sword hits deep past Skarls Amulet, as do many other weapons. So why use Skarls Amulet?

There are a couple reasons. First of all, Skarls Amulet is a tank's dream weapon. For those who do not know, tanks are 2-Player pets that have extraordinary defense for the leagues in which they exist, at the expense of both strength and health. The idea is that the opponent can't hurt what they can't touch. If the defense is high enough, weapons such as Skarls Amulet can be devastating. Suppose your opponent has Grapes of Wrath, Wand of the Dark Faerie, and Seasonal Attack Pea to round out their offense. Pairing Skarls Amulet with say Portable Cloud or Ultra Dual Shovel has obvious implications. Of course, few people choose sets so one dimensional, but this is just to illustrate a point.

The second reason to use Skarls Amulet has its origins in tanks, but can apply to normal pet builds just as easily. The defense icons on Skarls Amulet are special; they apply to both normal icons and reflected icons. The one great bane of tank pets is the Glowing Cauldron. Dubbed the "tank bus...
