Price/Power (0/5)
Honestly with the cheap nature of the Hanso Charisma Charm this item is pretty worthless. There are also much better single use blockers out there that block much rarer icon types then this.

Countermeasures (3/5)
This CAN block a good deal of darkness- but with how many Hanso Charisma Charms that are out there finding a person using dark icons is rarer.

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
Slippery Floor Potion or Carafe of Corruption are just two examples of better potions then this

Other Points

Final Thoughts
Now if "blind them temporarily" was like a freeze, then it would be good.

Overview: The Stream of Light is the twin to the Starlight Potion. It performs pretty much the same, but substitutes one attack icon for two earth-defense icons.

The Good: If you're having trouble affording the Hanso Charisma Charm but need a turn or two of full dark blocking plus some offense and defense, the Stream of Light fits the bill perfectly while not breaking the bank.

The Bad: Being one-time-use, the Stream of Light will need to be purchased and equipped every battle. The weapon is helpful for a single battle, but after a few battles, the cost can start to add up. Also, since this is needed to finish faerie quests, the price will never bottom out to 1np.

The Ugly Truth: The consideration for using Stream of Light in a battle should be if you can count on your opponent using dark as well as earth, and you don't plan on fighting that opponent much. If you plan to do a lot of fighting, save your neopoints until you can afford a Hanso Charisma Charm. If you only need to have one battle of dark protection and you can't guarantee your opponent will use an earth weapon, try the Starlight Potion instead for an extra icon of attack but no earth defense.
