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

Price(0/3): Way, way more expensive than it's worth. You could easily buy way more useful battledome items with the amount of neopoints this one costs.
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.
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.

Overall it's just your average underpowered, useless item. Nothing worth checking out here. 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 (0/5)
Another worthless and expensive R99 item.

Countermeasures (0/5)
So easy to sidestep by simply not using a light based item. There really is little here as a contingency.

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
Just get the other shell shield. The Shiny Shoal Shell Shield is better then this by far. Other then that, get the Parasol of Unfortunate Demise for unlimited light blocking.

Other Points

Final Thoughts
This art is really old- Looks kind of cool.

Price/power (0/5): Adding a shell sure didn't make it any cheaper. Not that it would have been worthwhile anyways.

Tactical (1/5): This seems like a weak version of Patched Magic Hat and an alternate version of Flaming Oven Gloves and Underwater Oven Gloves. However, you'd expect something a lot more from a shield this expensive.

Bonus (0/1): Knowing maractite weapons, it's unlikely that the shell is what makes this so weak.

Closing remarks: Get a Leaf Shield, {{Patched Magic Hat,}}, or a Shiny Shoal Shell Shield instead. For this price, you could also get Sophies Magic Hat or even a Wanderers Cloak if you're lucky.
