Price/Power (2/5)
Solid item, but not crazy. Price is likely a little too high when compared to some alternatives- but it may be worth checking now and then to see how it compares.

Countermeasures (3/5)
If you are in the lower end bracket for HP- this 55 could make a decent difference. If you have more- well, you may be better just keeping on attacking.

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
Realistically you may be just as easily looking for a Rejuvenating Jar of Brains, Greater Healing Scroll or Helm of Recovery

Other Points

Final Thoughts
Phew, good thing this had "Salve" written on it, I was about to use it for cooking! Really solid design choice right there, very piratey.

The price on this may inflate, but for now it's a slightly better version of a greater healing scroll, which is, uh, a pretty usable weapon for many pets. This being slightly better than that makes it a worthwhile addition to the set of some users. At some point after you train more you will want to upgrade to something nicer. In the interim, it has it's uses and that's more than you can say for most weapons out there.

I don't really get why someone would write "Salve" on a salve container, and I can't imagine a pirate using the word, but I'll ignore that for my review...

At the time of writing, this item sits between Greater Healing Scroll/Helm of Recovery and Rejuvenating Jar of Brains in price, which is fitting considering its effect also sits between them. Then again, you should be able to find a Greater Healing Scroll for a quarter to a third of this item's price, making the price spike for just 5 extra HP a bit frustrating...

Until you realize that you can totally just equip both at the same time.

Yep. Be it an oversight or intentional power creep, this can be equipped with other healers (though you may have to equip this item last, à la Potion of Healing, to get it to work -- I don't remember). Pair this with your existing Greater Healing Scroll and you've got ~twice the healing power! Pair this with Parachuting First Aid Kit and you're really making the most of Daily Dare.

I don't exactly enjoy promoting this aspect of it, but as long as it works this way, it's a pretty big point in its favor. This also makes talking about upgrades tough. Potion of Healing is another healer that can be equipped with other healers (as long as you don't try equipping anything after it). There's also Bottled Holiday Cheer and Faerie Healing Dust, but their 15 HP heals are easily outgrown.

If we ignore the multi-equip aspect, then Rejuvenating Jar of Brains is a direct upgrade. After that, your cost-effective options are either the expensive Short Sleeved Yellow Tunic (and maybe Crisp Blue Tunic...
