Overview: This is a once per battle item that does 3 icons of fire damage plus 6 icons of light damage for a total output of 9 icons. This item being once per battle essentially makes it a bomb, & a very weak one at that. Additionally, you can not purchase this item or trade for it as it's currently a no trade item.

Conclusion: As this item stands right now, it's absolutely terrible. A once per battle scimitar that is as hard to obtain as this is makes zero sense. I can only conclude that the once per battle feature was either a mistake, or that this item was intended to solely be a collector's item. If you want to use an item that deals both fire & light icons, can be purchased cheaply, is multi-use, & is just an all around better item, get a Flask of Liquid Fire

That can't be purchased or traded.

That is weaker than simple items like the Flask of Liquid Fire

Other Points

Final Thoughts
This item is just- not right. I feel like the once per battle nature of this sword was likely a mistake.

This would get a bad rating if it was multi use, but at once per battle it's just really truly terrible.

Left unanswered is the question of how can a scimitar only be used once? Does the attacker use it, look at the paltry damage after stabbing a foe and go "you know what? nah, you can keep that, i'll just stick with my other seven weapons?"
