Price/Power (1/5)
13 icons is much less powerful and reasonable than it once was- but I think the real sticking point here is the price. As it is a limited time charity corner item- the price will never be too fantastic.

Countermeasures (4/5)
I like the unique element which allows the attack type to vary between rounds. This (on paper at least) does make it harder to accurately predict/block this item. I kind of which this concept was used on other more powerful weapons- but I suppose that would be hell for macosten's testing.

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
While it doesn't have the same level of variance, something like the incredibly cheap Flask of Liquid Fire or the Turned Tooth would likely be a nice way of getting a similar number of icons cheaply.

Other Points (1 Bonus)
They do look really cool, I think I will pick some up as a collectors item

Final Thoughts
Overall, not an incredibly interesting or incredibly boring item- not too bad.

13 icons and dual duty isn't bad, but it's just a bit underpowered against some of the more serious weapons. It basically fights to a draw with sword of ari, and would lose outright to the other anagram swords.
