At a Glance (3/3):
Summon the dark powers of this eraser to delete one weapon from your opponent's arsenal... FOR GOOD! Or rather, PERMANENTLY! Because, it's not very nice to delete your opponent's things.

In-Depth (3/4):
On the one hand, if you are fighting a series of battles with a particular opponent, deleting an item will not only punch open a big, gaping hole in their set, but that hole will likely stay there for quite a while. Long enough to allow you to exploit their newfound weakness for the rest of the set of battles at least. Imagine if you and your opponent had even sets overall, and you use this in the finals of some championship. BAM. You're down one eraser, BUT, your opponent is down... what? Grapes of Wrath? Illusens Staff? Rod of Dark Nova? Jhudoras Wand perhaps? Possibly Ultra Dual Shovel? Maybe even Super Attack Pea?? Both of you would be fighting with 7 weapons, but at least you're prepared for that. Your opponent won't. Whatever your opponent lost had a crucial function for your opponent's strategy against you that they no longer have any access to for the rest of the set.

That, and losing your opponent's and a lot of other people's eternal respect, would be a good tradeoff that will give you the edge to win any championship match. But if it deletes an item your opponent just so happens to have another one of, then you will probably end up losing the finals too. Evil schemes tend to backfire, you know.

But for all other unimportant battles and non-finals matches, leave it be. Please. I'd rather see this eraser get put to real use than to be used as a petty grudge tactic...

Overview: Once the most feared weapon in all of Neopia, the Eraser of the Dark Faerie is all but non-existent now, thankfully.

The Good: Nothing good can come of this...

The Bad: From a weapons stand point, it does nothing. Basically, you can beat an Eraser of the Dark Faerie with any damage-causing weapon, so long as it isn't erased. This means it fails my "does it beat Attack Fork?" test. Even if the eraser does erase a weapon, then the two are only equal, since neither will be in play ever again. Basically, unless you've got a grudge against another player and want to undo some hard-earned neopoints, there's no reason to pull this out.

The Ugly Truth: The Eraser of the Dark Faerie is never worth taking into battle.

Eraser of the Dark Faerie may be one of the most misunderstood weapons in the Battledome.

Yes, this weapon will permanently delete a random weapon in the victims set when used. The problem is, it seems that inexperienced and casual battlers think that Eraser of the Dark Faerie is a real problem in 2-Player battling.

It's not.

The eraser costs an enormous sum of Neopoints, and like the weapon that it deletes, it will disappear forever when used. The eraser is worth more than the strong majority of weapons in the game.

There are two factors in being at risk for Eraser of the Dark Faerie. First, the victim needs to have some very expensive weaponry to justify use of one of the few erasers left out there. Second, the user needs to have some sort of motive for pulling the eraser on the victim.

Obviously, you should not and cannot live in fear of the Eraser of the Dark Faerie. Do not let this eraser dictate what weapons you are willing to play with. As for the second factor, play the game the right way, don't cheat, and be nice to others. If you have a big set and play the game in a respectable way, then you really have nothing to fear.

With that said, Eraser of the Dark Faerie probably won't even help the user win the battle. This weapon will destroy an opposing weapon at random. As any experienced 2-Player battler will know, relying on chance will not result in many victories. Furthermore, the eraser takes up a set slot and also takes a turn to use.

In closing, Eraser of the Dark Faerie is not a real problem in the Battledome. Please don't be led to believe otherwise.

Price/Power (2/5)

Back when this was in the hidden tower it was slightly more affordable... however, given the original price of purchase it was hardly ever worth the money unless against some seriously expensive firepower. Now days this horrible troll weapon is only worth destroying cove items with... but who would honestly do that? This is an evil weapon and will make you no friends if you decide to use it... at least it is single use.

Countermeasures (5/5)

The biggest countermeasure here is its own random nature, however given how awesome some high end cove battler's sets can be this can still be a killer blow.

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades

There are other troll items on Neopets, Slorg Flakes, Chia Flour... but the best alternative is comparatively harmless Poison Tipped Dagger.

Other Points (One Bonus, One Reduction)

One bonus for being retired, one off for being evil as whoever thought Atlas of the Ancients was a good idea..

Final Thoughts

A weapon best left far behind in the annals of history. A collectors item if only to keep it out of the hands of someone who would use it.
