Ratings - Tyrannian Flaming Pumpkin
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 weapon does is too low for today's battledome. There's not much else that can be said about this weapon beyond how underwhelming it is. It doesn't do anything special at all while the amount of icons it deals is pathetic.
Uniqueness(0/2): Sadly, most weapons tend to be rather underpowered or bland, be it because of lower than average icon count, easy to block icon types, or just oversaturation. 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): Very weak for any price.

Tactical (0/5): Easily blocked by Scarab Ring and too weak to be worthwhile.

Bonus (1/1): Because I can't give this a 0.

Closing remarks: Get a Scroll of Ultranova, a Ridiculously Heavy Battle Hammer, or something else that's very cheap, with 9 icons or more.

Price/Power (0/5)
5 icons- no. Just... no. They could give me 20,000 np and I still wouldnt put this item on my pet.

Countermeasures (0/5)
Fire is good, but this is not enough fire icons to be worth using or worrying about.

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
Flask of Liquid Fire for 2P, or Scroll of the Fool. If you really want this icon set at least get a Scroll of Three Curses instead.

Other Points

Final Thoughts
Would be a much nicer gallery item then it is a usable battle item.

At a Glance (0/3):
Toss this pumpkin at your opponent, and watch it explode, burning them with 3 icons of fire and 2 icons of physical damage!

In-Depth (0/4):
Fire is a hard to block element, but when there's only a smoldering flame of damage to deal with, it's not that bad to deal with. That being said, not only does this weapon suffer from being too weak to contend with standard 10-11 iconers, such as Scroll of the Scholar and Sun and Moon Chakram, but it's also easily countered by numerous dual duty weapons, including, but not limited to, Scarab Ring, Snowager Sword, Bleached Bone Staff, and Frozen Wave Scimitar.

There's no winning with this weapon. Sorry.

Price (0/2):
Just take Scroll of Ultranova and go. If TNT buffs this to be 10+ icons, and then the price magically falls to 1 np, then we'll talk.

Bonus (1/1):
This item was burned when it "floated". It makes me wonder its backstory. Like. Was it alive? Coming alive? Created by some demonic being? A byproduct of the experimentation of some curious conjurer? Or perhaps it's the lost head of some malicious horseman? Indeed, the inanimate pumpkin must've been powerful enough to float, on its own accord. With this in mind, you can't help but wonder just how powerful it was, if it was also getting stronger, and how much it's being suppressed while being subjected to a strange, forever-perpetuating fire?

One thing's for certain, it makes for a good Halloween tale. Muahaha.

Final Score: 1/10
