Ratings - Yooyuball Goalie Armour
|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. While the amount of neopoints isn't insane, it might as well be for this item.
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. The icons it defends against are good, but you have to rely both on your opponent using them all, and on your opponent dealing equal to or less icons than what you defend against. At best, you both neutralise each other, at worst, you wasted a slot and all the icons on their weapon hit.
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.

9 icons of defense seems like a fair chunk, but considering most other Altador Cup defensive items up to this point had been full blockers this item is less then remarkable.
Easily broken though when compared with other items, but is still a respectable blocker for its price.
Alternatives, Upgrades or Downgrades
Upgrading to a Leaf Shield sees one icon type changing for overall more defense. You could also sacrifice earth defense and pick up a cheap Yooyuball Goal Net Shield, another Altador Cup item which is a very cheap situational full blocker when struck with earth offering a different side to Altador Cup prizes.
Other Points (1 Bonus)
It is a retired plot prize, but doesn't get as many points for that as normal due to being one of the weaker cup blockers.
Possible younger brother to the leaf shield fails to impress me. But that isn't too hard for a defense item considering.
