Rating:
4
This weapon will only be rated for Regular 1P/2P use, since it doesn't have any niche or league use.

Price (0/3): No. Just... No. Old plot prize means there's barely any available, and even if they are, they'd go for outrageous prices
Power (3/5): 14 icons is good. 7 air is great, 7 physical is... bad, considering how easy it is to block, but it kind of makes up for it with the added 5 physical defence.
Uniqueness (1/2): A Fan of Swords would give you 6 more attack icons but it'd split between more icon types, while a Sword of Ari drops the defence icons and adds on more air and physical. Besides that there's not many options at this level.

Overall It is an alright weapon, but its rarity and price ruin it. If you have it and don't wanna sell it, it's ok to use. Because of that its final rating is 4/10.

Price/Power (0/5)
These kinds of items are prohibitively expensive and are not worth the effort. In return however you do get a semi-decent hard to block attack, so there is that.

Countermeasures (3/5)
Air is hard to block, Physical is easy to block (but gets through reflectors)- This seems like a limited use item, but at least it does have its niche.

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
Honestly I would say you would be 100% better forgoing the extra defense and going for a Sword of Ari instead. If what you want is the bulk physical you would likely be better with a Stone Foam Finger.

Other Points

Final Thoughts
A very nice gallery item, but little more.

Power: 1/5
14 offensive icons and defending 5 physical is not exactly something to shake off easily. Unfortunately being an ancient plot prize this carries an astronomical price tag, but hey - if you still have it, why not use it?

Counters: 1/3
Fun fact: this isn't exactly easy to stop in it's tracks. The only one that really comes close to it would be Hubrid Nox Memorial Shield which reduces this to mere 4 icons.

Uniqueness: 1/1
The combination of attacking with a decent amount of air and physical plus defending physical is totally unique and nothing to shrug off easily.

Bonus: 1/1
It's pretty nice how such an old plot prize actually withstood the test of time. If this actually was affordable it'd be really amazing. For something at least slightly similar at least you could check Fan of Swords.
