Price/Power (1/5)
A solid dual duty is sometimes hard to fine, but with 5 icons attack and 6 icons defense this one is pretty middle range. The cost of it, while low, is still too much in my opinion.

Countermeasures (1/5)
A bulk of icons makes this slightly harder to block normally, but the recent devaluation of the full light blocker Parasol of Unfortunate Demise makes this less attractive.

Alternatives, Upgrades or Downgrades:
A Scarab Ring offers a cheaper defense and an extra icon, whereas a Golden Compass offers more attack and less defense. This being said, if you are using a lab rat the defense will mean little to you. I still think the best option is a solid attacker like a Flask of Liquid Fire

Other Points (2 Bonus)
A retired plot prize gives it bonus points, but this item is way too cheap from a collectors standpoint due to market saturation.

Final Thoughts
A disappointment at the time, but still an interesting bit of history.
