Ratings - Essence of Esophagor
|Overview: The Essence of Esophagor was an old-school mid-tier weapon. While it's easily blocked by common shields, the Essence gives the advantage of delivering 9 icons over only two icon types. |
The Good: Dual icon types in a 9-iconer is a rarity. Most are going to deliver the icons across a spread of three types, giving a better chance of the opponent blocking.
The Bad: Water and earth are very cheaply blocked. You can almost guarantee an opponent in 2-player battles will have at least a Parasol of Unfortunate Demise or a Leaf Shield, both of which cut into the Essence's icons rather harshly, if not completely blocking it.
The Ugly Truth: In 9-icon battles, the Essence of Esophagor is worth having, as it isn't easy to get two-type icon spreads in lower-tier weapons. However, any battles using it should have a backup plan and expect the Essence of Esophagor to be blocked fairly often.
