Price/power (5/5): As of the time of writing, this is a little more than half as expensive as the Scroll of Knowledge. This make it the cheapest 11-iconer in existence.

Tactical (4/5): This icon combination is particularly difficult to fully block--Galems Cloak and the Steel Chomby Chestplate are the only ones that shut this down directly (and even then 2 icons will still get through). However, many common shields, such as the Shiny Shoal Shell Shield, will take a big chunk out of it.

Bonus (0/1): More icon inflation. Beginners will soon be able to afford 11-iconers!

Closing remarks: Prior to this weapon's release, the Scroll of Knowledge was the only 11-iconer that was commonly used. 11 icons were more of a stepping stone to 13-iconers such as Brynns Legendary Sword of Wraith Smiting and the Altador Cup Throwing Star. Now, with the release of this spear, the 11-icon era might just begin.

Price/Power (5/5)
The price is at a much more reasonable place now and this item has became a fairly decent option for battle.

Countermeasures (3/5)
Air-Dark-Water as a combo is reserved mostly to very bad species items... while many common items such as the Wanderers Cloak, Frozen Water Daggers and Blue Draping Cloak can take hunks off this item no one can destroy this weapon.

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
Rusty Pitchfork or Scroll of Knowledge for a similar power level- Flask of Liquid Fire for a harder to block choice.

Other Points

Final Thoughts
Surprisingly this item stands up a lot better then I was expecting. As the price drops this weapon may become yet another (of many) decent choices for battlers. While it can be easily chipped down, 11 icons is very solid and a good stepping stone before you get to the big leagues.
