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

Price(0/3): Completely worthless. Any neopoint spent on this item would be a waste, so it doesn't matter if it were dirt-cheap.
Power(0/5): The amount of icons this shield defends against is way too low, wasting a slot in today's battledome when you could attack more instead.. Even with all its defence icons it wouldn't be worth it. If a shield can't stop at least one of your opponents weapons you'll always end up at a disadvantage., and to make it all worse this shield has fractioned icons, so it wouldn't fully defend the amount of icons you'd assume at first glance. On top of that, this is a species restricted weapon, so even if it was good you'd need to have the respective neopet to use it.
Uniqueness(0/2): Most shields tend to defend icons in such low amounts that it's not worth it to use them over any weapon. This isn't the exception. Most species restricted weapons are like this, sadly.

Overall It's what you expect from a species restricted weapon. Only the healers and freezers are really worth it. Because of that its final rating is 0/10. I can't give a rating of 0 however, so it gets a shameful 1 instead.

Price/Power (2/5)
6-8 icons isn't horrible, but I question the reasoning for trying to block with this. It is by no means reliable enough.

Countermeasures (2/5)
It takes a good hunk off the Barbat Throwing Star, and almost completely blocks Ridiculously Heavy Battle Hammer... However without that reliability it is of less use. One upside of this is that if stolen it can only be used if a Lupe. However, being a defending item you should only be worried about it getting stolen if you are using a weapon that is blocked by this like the Ridiculously Heavy Battle Hammer

Alternatives, Upgrades or Downgrades
Try to save up for a Shiny Shoal Shell Shield instead. Really nice item that does this defense but a lot more. Unless you really don't want someone to steal it from you...

Other Points (No Bonus)

Final Thoughts
Less weak then expected, but not reliable enough to make it a good long term alternative to the {{Shiny Shoal Shield}}
