Price/Power (0/5)
A 9 icon bomb used to be very handy in the world of Neopets, however times have changed. Now days 9-11 icon items are common-place, and the fact that this takes up your healing slot is unforgivable. a max of 24 health may seem nice, but when you consider the chance of healing that it seems less attractive.

Countermeasures (0/5)
Fire is easily blocked by dual Scarab Ring items, and darkness is also fairly commonly blocked. For the amount of health healed, chances are the healing would be outclassed on the same turn used.

Alternatives, Upgrades or Downgrades
The Lesser Healing Scroll provides a solid 25 heal, with the Greater Healing Scroll providing a 50 heal. As for damage, try a Scroll of Knowledge or Scroll of the Scholar for that instead.

Other Points (2 Bonus)
This is a classic item from another time,

Final Thoughts
A single use healer which is unreliable at best and easily blocked.
