Ratings - Brain Of Mirgle
Price/Power (3/5)
Technically this item could be used similar to Kacheek Flour to get unlimited free intelligence- the price is good too... But when you compare the price to the ease and cost of simply reading your pet a ton of books the value seems to be diminished. Add to the fact the amount of time it would take to actually do this and it isn't like we are talking unlimited Strength here... The value is limited.

Countermeasures (0/5)
You can't really counter a non-weapon such as this- but at the same time what is there to counter?

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
There is no real alternative way to earn large amounts of Intelligence free with little effort- however at the same time intelligence has never been hard to obtain nor has it been really very useful in battling.

Other Points (3 Bonus)
For its unique ability- though it should be said that as far as I know stealing is still glitched right now so this item may not be even functioning as you would want.

Final Thoughts
Eating a brain in a jar to get brains really seems more like zombie logic then neopets logic.

Price/power (5/5): From my understanding, it functions much like the Kacheek Flour in that this takes two players to work. If done correctly, a pet can be given infinite intelligence.

Tactical (4/5): The main problem here is that it's extremely tedious to gain intelligence this way, since the whole point is to repeat it as many times as possible. Kacheek Flour only needs to be used occasionally or at most once a day.

Bonus (1/1): One of the few weapons to have side effects that cannot be used for trolling.

Closing remarks: Only use this if books aren't an option for you.

Pop For Your 'Points (3/3): Brain of Mirgle is actually exceptionally cheap. Even though Brain of Mirgle is single use, it won't dent your pocket to stock up on a few.

In Battle (0/5): Theoretically, this could drive up your opponent's intelligence in a 2P match over a certain threshold, perhaps allowing you to get full effect out of weapons such as Flask of Liquid Fire or even Wanderers Cloak. The odds of being able to push them over the threshold with a single Brain of Mirgle is low, in my opinion. Most battlers either intentionally get their intel as low as possible, or it's very high already so they can use weapons such as Crisp Blue Tunic or Short Sleeved Yellow Tunic.

There is the larger issue of manipulating the opponent's pet during battle, however. Just like you don't touch another man's cards in poker, you don't affect the opponent's stats for good without agreeing to it beforehand.

Other (0/2): My parents told me my Mirgle ran away when I was at camp... :(
