Ratings - Ultimate Negg Hammer
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 weapon does is too low for today's battledome while it barely defends against any icons, defeating the purpose of a dual duty. It'd be better to focus on either attack or defence instead of splitting total icons like this.
Uniqueness(0/2): Dual duties should compromise a bit of attacking power for extra defence or the other way around. This, like many others, is just underpowered.

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 (2/5)
8 Icons attack, 3 defense. Not horrible for a dual duty and the price is pretty low.

Countermeasures (2/5)
Light is pretty rare to block, however at this level of fighting it is also rarely used. You may beat down a Festive Holiday Scroll or a Golden Compass sometimes however it is kind of underwhelming to me. The main downside of this weapon is the huge sum of physical icons used, with items like the Altadorian Swordbreaker just able to totally cut it down.

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
If you really need to block light, try a Parasol of Unfortunate Demise, dual duty wise I would most likely prefer using a Golden Compass or a Amulet of Inevitable Betrayal, however most dual duties are remarkably underwhelming.. For attack a Ridiculously Heavy Battle Hammer may also work.

Other Points (1 bonus)
It is retired, and it is negg related. Neggs are awesome.

Final Thoughts
Negg items are pretty neggy.

Price/power (5/5): At the time of writing, this costs a little under 20k. About as cheap as light-defending dual duties get.

Tactical (3/5): Having more than 3 icons in anything means that shields are likely to be overwhelmed. However, physical is very easy to block, especially with stuff like the Altadorian Swordbreaker and Winged Scarab. Most shields (e.g. Shiny Shoal Shell Shield, Studded Leather Cuirass) also block physical, so the value in having 5 physical icons seems a little dubious.

Bonus (1/1): Finally, a Negg item worth using.

Closing remarks: Your next best alternative is probably the Amulet of Inevitable Betrayal or the Sword of the Dead, both of which are more expensive and deal less damage. At the time of writing, the Ancient Gnarled Wand is no longer a cost-effective option.
