Ratings - Steaming Skeem Potion
Rating:
8
Overview: This potion performs well in 2-player and not nearly as well in 1-player. That's all there is to it.

The Good: 11 icons and a cheap price tag means that the Steaming Skeem Potion is viable in both L97 and 500k-limit tournaments.

The Bad: Frozen Water Daggers take a chunk out of the Skeem Potion for cheap. Also, this part of your set won't help you much in 1-player, as the potion only does 8 icons, so you'd be better off grabbing a cheap attack weapon like Scroll of Ultranova, or for a bit more, Scroll of Knowledge.

The Ugly Truth: For tournament play, I recommend this wholeheartedly. For 1-player battles, there are cheaper, yet better, alternatives.

Price/Power (3/5)
8-11 icons depending on the INT of your opponent is really decent especially considering the cost. While it may not have the 100% dependability of the Scroll of Knowledge it would be pretty hard to find a pet with under 20 INT to make this lower.

Countermeasures (4/5)
Surprisingly hard to block combo of icons, it should be easy to get at least part of these icons always through...

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
The Scroll of Knowledge provides an attack without the uncertainty but is easier to block in 2P. Besides this, your next upgrades are the plot weapons such as the Ylanas Blaster and the like, which require a lot more NP to obtain. Just remember you can often win that level of item free by participating in a plot...

Other Points (None)

Final Thoughts
Not too bad at all, nice icon combo and a pretty good price. Really is worth a look if you are not at the plot weapon level of fighting.
