Price/Power (5/5)
Honestly for 50k this power is fairly great, half a Pirate Captains Hat with none of the mess.

Countermeasures (3/5)
The only issue I see here is that there are few items that will actually work out fully against this lens. Best case is the Seasonal Attack Pea- but when was the last time you saw one of those but still couldn't afford a Pirate Captains Hat? You may however run into Blazing Embers or Sword of Malum- but even then you are only looking at a few total icons being blocked. The counter is good, but it isn't great.

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
While the Kings lens would likely love to get prime slot here due to its third icon type, currently its price is still much higher than this. You'd be better off just going for the aforementioned Pirate Captains Hat instead.

Other Points

Final Thoughts
Not bad, prices have dropped but honestly its utility is still limited.

At a Glance (2/3):
Reflects 50% of 2 elements: light, and earth. Cannot use two at once, though that's not really an issue.

In-Depth (2/4):
This has the utility of both Shovel Plus and Expert Lens. Numerically speaking, it's like Pirate Captains Hat, but without the fire defense, the semi-fragility (you would break even with either weapon if you got hit with earth and/or light), and the price. But like the other two reflectors above, you will be faced with the same limitations: the difficulty to win against mass earth constants, and the potential redundancy for the defense of a rarely utilized element.

Price (1/2):
I can never keep up with the price of this thing. It's worth less than it currently is at the moment, and it will stay that way for awhile as long as people try to keep the price up (even though supply will eventually get the better of them). I personally think its worth ~500k-700k, no more than 1 mil.

Bonus (1/1):
I find it really ironic that it's better than Princely Lens... I also find it ironic that having one less element from Kings Lens constitutes a price drop of ~39-49m (it does make quite a difference though!).

Final Score: 6/10
