Price/Power (4/5)
A 30% return/block even if for a short period of time would be incredibly useful against 1P bosses and strong normal opponents. It may be a little niche, but it is a really unique and interesting way to do a mote. Normally when I see mote I see trash- but here we could have some small glimmer of treasure for limited situations.

Countermeasures (5/5)
Blocks all except for true damage icons. The only thing which can stop its rein of terror is it breaking- but so long as you can get a few turns out first it should be good.

Alternatives, Upgrades or Downgrades
This reminds me of why you may take a "Downsize" with you. Assuming you aren't trying to rely on a single turn of burst damage this could be a good alternative.

Other Points (1 Deduction)
It is a mote and I know that shouldn't hold such contempt for them- but I wish this wasn't a mote.

Final Thoughts
Surprisingly niche and interesting mote.

Very unusual in that historically weapons could not block reflect yet somehow this one does. Continuing the trend of the new battledome coders not doing anything in line with previous battledome coders and creating a bit of a mess.

There is a concrete use for this, and a limited one, and that use is specifically for boss fights or extremely difficult fights. After you have exhausted lensflare and the 1 use equivalents of thyoras tear, this has a use as it can be combined with other items and skills to both deal damage and block a good chunk against a much stronger opponent hopefully long enough to keep you alive.

This is fragile, so has no real utility in day to day grinding or in most friendly 2 player fights. We have no idea what the endgame cost of this is right now, so it's being rated purely on merit, but it's a unique weapon in any case.
